Glamping or camping in the great outdoors is the perfect way to strengthen relationships or simply enjoy solitude and nature.
Santa Margarita KOA Campgrounds is a beautiful 70-acre campsite, that is built into the side of a mountain. The location is ideal and has accommodations to suit every taste. Bring your tent, RV, rent a YURT or take it up a notch, by choosing one of the several deluxe cabins. Dirt and gravel sites dot the oak and pine tree studded mountainside and choices are in abundance. Deluxe cabins offer several floor plans that can include showers, bathtubs and full or partial kitchens. Some cabins have air conditioning, heating, cable TV and internet service.
Many of the campsite areas are huge and can accommodate large groups. It is very convenient that one family can stay in a deluxe cabin while friends can pull alongside and hook up their RV. Some of the areas allow pets, for a small fee. The campsite is well maintained and the amenities are numerous.
One of the best features is the service. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and the on-site General Store has everything from ice to soup to nuts. Bundles of firewood, are available and there is a decent selection of wine and cold beer. If you need a gathering spot, there is a huge, party YURT that can hold up to 40 people.
Get settled and let the fun begin. Have you ever seen a Jumping Pillow? It is huge. Imagine a giant inverted trampoline that all ages can jump up and down on. You’ll feel like you are flying.
There is nothing better than a cool, morning hike, through the beautiful campsite. Don’t be surprised when you come across Kevin the Emu. This huge, friendly bird is the Santa Margarita KOA camp Mascot. Play a game of volleyball, take a dip in the pool or simply sit, smell the pine trees and listen to the birds sing. In the evening, you can BBQ your favorite foods and take in spectacular sunset views.
Once the sun sets, throw a bundle of wood into the large fire ring and be amazed by the millions of stars above.
The campground is located at 4765 Santa Margarita Lake Road in Santa Margarita.
