Great place to make a base for hiking trips to the San Gabriel Mountains and the Vazquez Rocks area. The staff at the KOA work hard to make sure you enjoy your stay there. Stayed here Memorial Weekend 2021 in upgraded RV spot. Management had activities each day and night (movie night for kids, snow cones, hay ride). Cool spot to see PCT hikers too. Pool, shuffle board, volleyball, bike rentals and more! Very little cell signal and Wifi is spotty. Metro Train 15 minute drive away and takes 50 min train ride to Union Station (los Angeles). 👍👍
As per reviews below, had the same experience - booked and cancelled for a number of weeks out and while the policy was “cancel for a $10 penalty”, site has decided to change its policy without notice. Also taking the issue up with KOA, plus other paths.
Just called to cancel a 1 night reservation that i booked in mid may 2021 for a reservation in July 12 days before my arrival and was told that someone named Justin Hahn decided that the cancellation policy was changed to no refund on deposit at all, despite the stated cancellation policy in my email conformation. I was told that the website was changed to reflect the change in policy, it was not! I was not sent any any notification via email of such a change. I will be looking into the legality of this practice, the ethics are obvious. Do not book with this KOA!!!!!!
This place is horrible! It’s lights out by sundown. don’t have fire pits.play grounds for the kicks not safe look danger coming at part . The Metrolink train cruises along side every few hours until 11:30, then the very long and loud freight train at 3:00 am. WiFi doesn’t workand phones .The pictures on the website are nothing like the real thing. It’s a run down trailer park, with a lot of grumpy permanent residence. I was very disappointed. Don’t book here. It’s old, dirty and rundown. manager at this KOA Not friendly and rude pay for 2 days and refuse to refund money but experience NOT RECOMENT THIS KOA
I can’t believe this place has any good reviews at all. To say it was terrible, does a disservice to the word terrible. The electrical connection was horrible in AUGUST when it was 95+ degrees there. When we advised that the electrical kept shorting out, we were told, well you could probably run your generator at night if you want to. REALLY?! I’m paying $72+ / night for full hook ups and the response is I can pay even more and run my generator using my diesel?! This place felt very unsafe as well. Do not stay here; go down the highway to Santa Clarita and stay somewhere decent.
This place is horrible! It’s lights out by sundown. They advertise, and charged me for, but don’t have fire pits. The Metrolink train cruises along side every few hours until 11:30, then the very long and loud freight train at 3:00 am. WiFi doesn’t work. No lights in the men’s bathroom or shower. The pictures on the website are nothing like the real thing. It’s a run down trailer park, with a lot of grumpy permanent residence. I was very disappointed. Don’t book here. It’s old, dirty and rundown. Did you ever see the movie Con Air with Steve Buscemi, and he’s in the trailer park talking to that little girl? It’s like that.
Finding difficulty getting a campsite closer to the coast decided on this KOA since their (KOA) standards are high. What a disappontment. In the middle of nowhere, Dusty, hot, terrible WIFI, no cable, no over the air TV signal, expensive. Only upside is getting our money back for the second night.
Our expectations were a well undermined, no bathroom facilities, although they had the one open by the main check in area, it was filthy dirty., WiFi rarely works, very over priced. Trains blasting there horn at least ten times a day, 3AM was the best one especially each day. The biggest disappointment was the pricing of this place, not worth it!!
The location is absolutely breath taking. It is surrounded by mountains. They have tents on site that are absolutely cute. Store on site was convenient. We stayed in the family camp site. It was extremely cozy. Really loved the communal area as well
We stayed one night at this campground in our travel trailers and it was definitely sub-par. We had reserved 2 sites booked as deluxe. The sites had no picnic tables, no room, absolutely nothing to make the deluxe. Fortunately we were traveling together so at least it was friends 6 ft. away! There wasn't even enough room to extend our awning and the chairs we set up were 3 ft. from the sewer hook-up. Very disappointing! The sites were also expensive, close to $80. per night with tax. The people were friendly but the place is run down and shabby. The entire campground needs to be upgraded and fixed. How our sites were considered deluxe is beyond comprehension! I seriously don't know how this place continues to be considered a KOA Holiday. It was terrible. A shame as the site could be lovely. We knew about the trains, they weren't really bad. We enjoyed the hooting owls. If you need to stay in this area I recommend the Californian, much, much better and cheaper!…
