We really enjoyed the campground and there is a lot to do. They have a lot going on during the weekend including a covered wagon ride, wine tasting for adults, spaghetti dinner for a small price, tri-tip dinner on Sunday for a price. There were two pools and a spa. I could see the kids camping there with their parents...

Everyone on the staff was wonderful. We brought our horses and the ranch provided us with a guide. He was great and showed us the best trails to ride. The dinner on Saturday night was great. The Ice Cream social was a highlight.

I had fun. They let me bring my dogs and horse. This place is relaxed and not a ton of militant rules. The cabins are cute. I liked the adult lodge for getting online. The trails are great and the river very inviting. The road to get in sucks. Once you get in, it's great.

Although sites were close together, folks were respectfully quiet. The pool area was very clean, water temperature was perfect, fun. The campground layout worked well. Beautiful place. Staff were ALL helpful and pleasant. Thank you!

We chose this park mainly for the proximity to Santa Barbara. We were surprised at how beautiful the park was! We didn't have enough time to use all of the facilities or even hike all the hikes. We completely enjoyed our stay and plan to return.

I have been here before, this is my second visit and would come again. Great place, nice staff, good amenities. There were four of us in a TT-cottage. The unit is a little cramped but was still nice. I think I would prefer to go up one size depending on the price.

Site 36 was clean and well kept. But other than being invaded by earwigs which got into everything, all else was good. Another site could have been chosen, but not all sites have bbqs, that's a priority for us when choosing a full hookup rv site

Great amenities. Lots of activities for the kids from Friday to Sunday. Horse backriding, movie nights, basic cafe, hot showers, and more. We stayed in a tent and the place is beautiful and has tons of trails to explore.

Great Los Osos stay, Len and Robb were of great assistance in taking care of an issue we had with our cabin. The Easter activities were will organized and fun for our kids. My daughter went on a horse ride that was very safe and fun.

Was very happy except we rented a covers wagon and had to upgrade because there were so many bugs it was really gross. I felt we should of been upgraded for free we were not expecting all those bugs. That was my only complaint.
