They offered free ice cream on Fridays. The sites were ok. We got a water and electric site. Brought our tent. The only sad thing is that Lake Isabella is almost none existent. If your reason to go to this Koa is the lake itself; you might find yourself very dissapointed.

We chose this KOA due to it's proximity to Lake Isabella, Kern River and Sequoia National Forest. We stayed in one of the electric/water tent sites. It was easy to get down to Lake Isabella, as well as going up to the Trail of 100 Giants and visiting Kernville. It was nice and quite during the week and the entire family enjoyed playing organized games on Friday night and seeing a movie outdoors on Saturday night. The restrooms were clean and well stocked. The pool and splash pad were clean and inviting. Bike rentals were fun during the week as well. Overall a very nice KOA with owners who enjoy what they do and it shows with how well kept the facility is.

Stopped here for two days between Bishop and So Cal. Not much of a lake left and the town appears to not be doing well. This facility has an excellent pool which we were in most of the time we were there. Hook ups were fine and staff was friendly. It's not a place we would be likely to return but not because of the RV park.

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!
