Very nice park.
Aug 05, 2015
we've been coming here annually for many years. They Take good care of everything & there have been some nice improvements like the children's sprinkler park etc...

Loved it! We were just there overnight, but we got last minute reservations, everyone was super nice and helpful!
Aug 04, 2015
The staff were all very kind and helpful. The park was tragic. No feeling of being in nature. No privacy - TINY camp spaces. Feels like you are on a dead soccer field with cement slabs.

I had a great stay during the reggae on the river weekend. I was however deeply disappointed in the management decision to not allow a local woman who had been evacuated out of her home due to the wildfires. The woman ran an animal board and train business and had too many dogs than the camoground allows. I felt the lack of compassion for this local family was disgusting. Have some heart benbow.

It's fine for an overnight stop. Appeared to be a number of "locals" using the pool, instead of guests staying at the campground. Even the FedEx Driver jumped in the pool with his clothes on while we were poolside.

Nice grounds & facilities. Clean, large restrooms. Nice area to walk dogs. Unfortunately, our neighbors (who actually work for this KOA!) smoke! This ruined my stay. Cigarette smoke is disgusting for everyone around the smoker. Please screen smokers upon registration & place them FAR away from non-smokers (or don't allow). 2nd hand smoke is repulsive & proven to have cancer causing agents

Clean, organized, resturant to walk to, lots to do at campground for the kids, nice pool and game room. Train rides for children, sites close to one another and not much privacy and a lot of freeway noise cause it's close to 101. Golf course at site.close to avenue of the Giants is really only attraction.

Lights not working so walking dog at night a challenge.Laundry room needs a large ceiling fan or two. Staff responsive and friendly. Enjoyed our stay.
Aug 01, 2015
It was disappointing that the river had toxic blue green alge and the bathrooms could be cleaner. Staff were nice and the pull through with a concrete pad was nice.
Aug 01, 2015
Campground was nice. Bathrooms and shower very nice. Only problem was weather was extremely hot. Not KOA'sfault. Just bad luck.
Aug 01, 2015
Have been using this as overnight spot for years. Now that it is KOA, no great change beside the shirt color. Will continue to use it.

This is our second year in one of the cabins. We will be back again. Good bed, wonderful and helpful staff. The manager Lisa is outstanding. Looking forward to our next stay there.
Jul 31, 2015
We asked at reservation time for a 50amp, we got a 30amp. We knew they had a lot of shade. We requested shade, and we got the only spot open to the sun, and they weren't willing to find us either 50amp or shade. They charge $5.00 a bag for ice.....won't be going back or recommend. The location was beautiful in the Redwoods
Jul 31, 2015
Stayed one night. Pluses: Shady spots, friendly staff, beautiful pool, and short walk to the beautiful Benbow Inn (we had brunch & wonderful dinner on the terrace) 5 star. Take flash light a few spots are a bit dark on the path. Negitives: Sewer hook up are about 6 in or so off ground. Laundry room was very dirty. I had to wash machines & folding table before I could use. Will be back. Thanks

Best campground I've ever stayed at.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

That's quite a compliment. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, hope to see you again in the near future.

camp sites not as nice as once were. but still a great place to stay.
Jul 30, 2015
Located conveniently on 101. Get a lot of transient travelers.The sites are a bit tight, but not unbearably so.Campgrounds are clean and well maintained. Not used to being watered on during a stay, but understand why since there is so much traffic passing through. The biggest ding on the campground is it is overpriced, but having the golf course and close to recreational activities is the big draw
Jul 30, 2015
Nice, clean campground. Had trouble maneuvering to get gas for RV at crowded stations in Garberville, no fault of KOA. Great meal at Benbow Inn. Need to make dinner res for dining room otherwise eat in bar or on porch.

We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the property, specifically the dog walk. Our camping site was right across from the dog walk and I was concerned that we would be smelling nothing but poop the whole time. That wasn't the case at all! We were particularly happy with all the pavement, it made riding the tricycle much easier for our son. Thank you so much, what a clean, quiet place!!

Thank you for your comments. I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay.

Had a great stay and we will come again. We like the pool and hot tub.
Jul 28, 2015
I would give it more stars but this KOA really needs some work, Staff is slow in the office, Pool over crowed with the local redients coming in and taking over, pool has a big section missing on bottom, needs more chairs and sitting area at pool. Cabins are either way to expensive or rented to the employees working there.
Jul 28, 2015
Appreciated that Benbow RV is now a KOA - it has really improved the campground. It's cleaner & better organized. The only thing that wasn't good is that a tent-camping family reunion group partied with loud music & barking dogs past midnight (WAY after the posted quiet time of 10:00 pm) on both Friday & Saturday nights (7/24 & 7/25) and no park staff did anything about it.
Jul 28, 2015
Nice cabins but housekeeping needs work.
Jul 28, 2015
the trash was way over due to be picked up.
Jul 28, 2015
nice place

Was assigned a site at the end of the property near construction equipment and a pile of stones/gravel. A long walk to the pool from our site. The pool was not crystal clear. Too near the dog walk for our liking. More interest in kampers than golfers should be taken. I never could get on the wifi. And much too long a walk back too office to find out.
Jul 28, 2015
The nicest and most accommodating people there were Monique and Charlie. They tried to make us feel as comfortable as possible and always had a smile on their face.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I will be sure to pass your compliments on to Charlie and Monique.
Jul 27, 2015
Great Stay. Great Staff. Wish you had BBQ and Fire pits at all Tent sites. Overall a Wonderful time spent with the most accommodating Staff. Cheers Keep it up. We had 8 sites and a Cabin.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was a pleasure having your group here. We are in the process of getting approval for our plans to upgrade the sites. The upgrades include fire pits at each site. We hope to see you again in the near future.
Jul 25, 2015
So many flys and trash cans need to be not so close to campers very clean staff very nice andf friendly need to have the one way clearly so guests don't go the wrong way and need to put on our map the time the watercomes on or a flyer on the table for us
Jul 24, 2015
Staff was outstanding. Facility has something for everyone and very well maintained.
Jul 23, 2015
Nice golf course Sewer connection is about 6" too high and no way to secure the sewer hose. I was not happy about the sprinklers coming on in the middle of the night soaking my rig and all my patio furnature.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. I'm so sorry you had a bad experience with the sprinklers. We are working on adjusting the irrigation schedule to comply with local agency watering guidelines and are creating a solution that won't inconvenience our guests. Again, our apologies for your experience.

Very good

Great staff, great location, great campground!
Jul 23, 2015
Always a nice place to stop on our way north. Love the pool. Haven't had a chance to try the golf course. Next time
Jul 23, 2015
Enjoyed our stay and would return. Thank You
Jul 22, 2015
Adequate for overnight. Lady who checked us in told me that the spot I had reserved months earlier was not available. The only way I found out was that she told me I got a $6 reimb. but didn't say why, until I looked at the site map that showed me going to a cheaper site than the one I reserved. She asked if I had reserved online (yes). She said, "Next time, call." No apology whatsoever. :(

We have stayed here many times over the years because we love dining at the inn..
