“Great weekend camping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Great location for easy access to the southern sequoias and Kern river. Absolutely loved the pancake breakfast on Sunday morning the owners are very gracious and friendly. Well maintained pool, grounds and store and looking forward to coming back in the near future.

This Koa campground was like all the others that we stayed at on our trip, very welcoming, clean and quiet. We are from WV and traveled to San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Death Valley and the Grand Canyon. We chose to stay at KOA locations to save on money and each one was great. The restroom facility here was very clean, each camp site size was roomy and after hours was quiet, not to mention the staff was very friendly. I would highly recommend the Lake Isabella/Kern River KOA!

Lake Isabella was our favorite KOA. It's family run, which makes for a very friendly atmosphere. While it's small in size, it's high on service. They have food and an outdoor kitchen. I preferred this to the many larger KOA's which feel like parking lots. You have to travel a bit for the attractions and the water but it was worth it. Would return again if I was in the area.

Great place to camp at. We stayed in a cabin. Very cozy. Clean swimming pool for kids + activities for them to enjoy! Restrooms were clean! Amenities such as store, laundry and ice are good as well. Lake is right around and/or down the highway. Town is also down the road where you have local restaurants and a Vons Supermarket fair priced for being up in the mountains... Please support this Koa Campground! I am sure you will enjoy your stay just as we did! Happy Trails Trip Advisors! Cheers!

We stayed here 3 nights on a 32 day trip out west. I realize they were experiencing a drought during our stay but the sites and whole area is nothing but dirt. Every time a vehicle would enter a dust cloud would follow. Some gravel would go a long way to making this park much nicer. Also they allowed all manner of "guest" vehicles to come and go day and night. These people did not camp at this location. Having a bar attached to the camp office probably didn't help.

Good place for family. There's a play ground for the kids and a swimming pool. However the sites are close to each other so the sound carries easy. Although campers are asked to respect the 10 pm quiet time, no one enforces it. You can here others late at night.

I thought I had a nice weekend getaway. I just needed to get away from the city. We had the two floor cabin. One bedroom and a half bedroom upstairs. It was nice and pretty relaxing for the price I paid. However I feel that the futon needed washing, it had pee stains. Also when you shower there is bearly any hot water. I had to shower with cold water. The cold of the night also sneaks in very easily. I was sick the next morning. But I didnt mind as much since I didnt pay much for the stay. However the futon was really gross. I wouldnt sleep on it. It also has its own parking right next to the cabin which is convenient and a convenience store.

Room Tip: Get the two bedroom or the the two floor cabin
