Campground Reviews

Aug 06, 2013
My family had a great time camping at the Bay Center/Willapa Bay Koa. My kids loved being across from the playground where they spent most of their time. Everyone was very friendly.

In the 3 yrs we have camped here we have had a great trip with great service. It is also nice to know if there is ever a problem the owners are on site at all times.

I have been going to this KOA for better part of 14yrs and am dissappointed to say that we may not be going back. The new ownership takes a stance of hardlining the "quiet time" at and even prior to 10PM. We have a large group that occupies at least 5 spots and were to told to hold our conversation down at 10PM. There is a difference of being disruptive and enjoying friends!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our quiet time is clearly stated in the campground guidelines and is at 10pm. In order for all guests to have the experience they are paying for and expecting we do enforce quiet time at 10. Enjoying friends is encouraged, being loud enough to disrupt other campers can not be permitted

Nice clean campground, nice store and people, however we were wanting the "pristine beach" as per website. Beach was muddy, weedy, small.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

At this time of year the sea grass gets uprooted from the bay floor and washes ashore. It is a necessary process to facilitate the proper growing of the oysters in this area. The tides will clear the beach of the grass as the month progresses.

Very helpful, yurt comfy, interesting area. Great wildlife spotting, and seafood eating. Calm and away from it all.

Well kept grounds, clean restrooms/showers, and very friendly and helpful staff. My only disappointment was the cabin we stayed in was only really equipped to sleep four and I had reserved for five under the assumption that the cabin configuration was 3 single beds and a double bed. Instead it was 2 singles and 1 double so one of us ended up sleeping on the floor.

Hosts and staff treated us like family, extremely helpful in touring recommendations, lessons in clam digging. Restrooms immaculate and spacious; personal and decorative touches abound that make this campground utterly charming. Access to Willapa Bay and clamming, beachwalking just a couple hundred yds away. We couldn't leave, kept extending our stay-LOVE this KOA one of the very best we've seen

The best part of the stay for me was the couple who were the care takers. Their customer service was excellent.

I am partially disabled with two replaced knees and a recently broken kneecap. EVERYONE OF THE STAFF at Bay Center were helpful with getting my camp set up and carrying ice for me. I was so impressed with this KOA, I booked a reservation for Sept., the KOA customer appreciation weekend. It was kept clean, everyone was friendly, and I will go back often. I will recommend this location highly.

Great for the clams, nice site, and great owners.
Jul 30, 2013
We stayed in a cabin. It was cozy, clean and very pleasant. The site is well kept. Bathrooms were cleaned regularly. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. They have daily activities for the kids. We also enjoyed raking for clams which is just off the site.

Clean and safe facilities, courteous staff, close walk to the ocean bay for elderly -- stairs a bit steep.
Jul 30, 2013
Very friendly staff, although the bathrooms could use more hooks. If you're a tenter, make sure you get a tent space because the others are the usual RV right next to each other spaces :-)

Nice people, nice place. Wish there was a site check for doggie doo by staff before we got the site. Ended up stepping in it, but oh well. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Although we had to leave a day early due to issues at home we thought it was great! And the owners are awesome! Would definitely go here again.

Ken & Iris are wonderful hosts, for a setting that is just marvelous, and a facility kept in pristine condition. Go out of your way to be here!...you will not be disappointed!

This was my first time out with my 23 ft RV. I was nervous about the hook up. Ken was very helpful and put my mind at ease. Bay Center KOA has a new fan! Thanks.
Jul 24, 2013
This was one of the friendliest group of KOA owners and employees. Super clean and helpful. Great activities for the kids and recommendations for local things to do. We will stop back and bring some rain boots so we can go clamming. Thanks Ken and Iris!!

We arrived later than we planned for out overnight stay. We were greeted and led to our space personally, which was wonderful! The gentleman also briefly explained where everything was and acquainted us with the power and other hookups. We spent more time the next morning around the camp. We visited the beach and showered. Everything was clean and the trail to the beach was amazing!
Jul 23, 2013
Great campground, close to the beach (not a great swimming beach but at low tide you can find shells and other treasures!) Very clean and well kept. The staff were amazing, very friendly and accommodating! It is kind of remote, closest gas station is about 25-30miles away but we loved how quiet it was!
Jul 22, 2013
Willapa Bay KOA is like home for us every time we come to camp. The amenities are wonderful, very nice and clean. We never have any problems there while our stay. The clams are great and that's something my family loves to do together. Ken & Iris are the perfect owners for a K.O.A they like seeing everyone else having fun along with games, activities and they like to chat. The Kulhavy's

Our stay at Bay Center KOA was great. Very friendly staff from the minute we arrived, until we left. Nice maintained campground with lots of activities.

Christmas in July created unique memories for our family. The Kampground was very well kept and peaceful. One situation occurred between some guests, it was handled promptly and professionally by the hosts.

Hosts are very friendly and staff in general is constantly making sure all is running smoothly. We are used to larger tent sites so were a bit disappointed with the small site and small picnic table as well. Overall, the campground is very nice though with clean bathroom and showers. We did not care for the firewood for sale in the campstore....next time we would buy it offsite.
Jul 22, 2013
Friendliest KOA ever. Hope it's on our travels again.
Jul 21, 2013
We loved you site, beautiful and so close to everything

We stayed in a cabin. It was very clean and cozy. The campground was very clean and staff was friendly.

I had a easy carefree stay in a cozy heated camping cabin. Easy Access to the beautiful bay and its beach are the highlight of this KOA.

Friendly greeting. Very quiet location near the beach, although kind of remote. You can go clamming with a shellfish license. However, my mom was told that we could take our time checking out of our cabin, and at 12:05 they asked us when we were leaving, even though we were obviously loading the car. Yes, we were late, but my mom had understood it to be ok. I was disappointed in that treatment.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our check out time is noon and our check in time is 1:00. In order to have a clean cabin available for our arriving guests, it is not possible to provide a later checkout when we have guests waiting to check in.
Jul 18, 2013
clean, quiet campground with nice hosts and the right amenities for a relaxing stay with close proximity to the beach and clamming. We will be back :-)
Jul 18, 2013
Arrived early and did not feel well after driving, and they changed my reservation quickly and got me into a nice yurt. Many Thanks.
Jul 17, 2013
We really enjoyed the Kabin we rented. It was nice! My son had fun, just wish there were more kids and a better playground. The bathrooms were nice and clean and my husband appreciated the dish washing sink.
Jul 16, 2013
I will and plan to visit this site again in the near future. The service provided was friendly and comfortable. The staff had a wonderful choice of games and fun for kids, varying for all ages. This place was EXCELLENT.
Jul 16, 2013
This was our first time at this KOA and we loved how friendly everyone was and they had lots of activities for kids to do which we really enjoyed.

The staff were very friendly and the campground was kept very clean and warming. They had some great activities for families to participate in on the weekends. Overall this is a great place to stay.
