We stayed in the yurt and it was awesome! We needed to have a laundry day and the spaciousness of the yurt was helpful on a rainy day. Friendly staff and a great location for our PNW road trip.

nice location. Manager seems grumpy and a bit hostel at times.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Moving of firepits where they will create fire danger and injury to campers accessing their RV's is prohibited on the campground. Your inquiry to move the firepit was refused. Your subsequent actions involving moving of the firepit was concerning to the overall safety of our campers.

I was there with my grandson on opening day of bow hunting season. The campground was full, however it was still quiet and people were very friendly!

Ken & Iris are fantastic & very helpful. Beach access and all the amenities in a quiet campground make this a preferred stay for us. Thanks for a great time

Owners were helpful and interested in making our stay comfortable, providing interesting info on the area. They are hardworking people and it shows. Our site was roomy, private and a fun short walk to the beach which was rugged and great for clamming. Campers were friendly and quiet. There weren’t any trains or traffic sounds and no intrusive lights at night. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Bay Center KOA is the most friendly KOA I have stayed at. The owners and Camp Workers are always happy and will always stop what they are doing to say hi or just chat. Very clean campground and they are always improving on it.

This is an excellent campsite. It’s a bit on the rustic side but well run and a very enjoyable stay.

For the second year in a row I traveled from Reno to Bay Center KOA for part of my vacation. I stayed in Kabin 3 again and enjoyed the changes Ken and Iris made. The addition of the TV, coffee maker, BBQ and covered eating area are great. Pizza was fantastic again and I loved the beach. The peace of mind I get at Bay Center I haven't found elsewhere. Hope to return next year.

A very nice campground, our campsite was in the middle of the campground between two other sites but felt private with the vegetation growing between sites. Very quiet at night even though the campground was full. The staff was friendly, concerned that we were enjoying our stay and gave us great kayaking recommendations. Try the Middle Fork of the Palix River. Watch the tides though

Two days of sleeping in and walking on the beach was a great start to our vacation. The site we stayed in has a very nice patio with bbq grill, table and four chairs, fire pit, and off to the side, a swing. We used all of it both days. Just so relaxing there. And the hosts and staff were all very polite and helpful. We'll be back next September...

The staff is great, campground always clean. The owners checkes to make sure we made thru first night because it rained so hard and windy. We highly recommend this camp ground.

Booked this weekend sometime ago because of VKR weekend - buy one night and stay for two. When we got there I was informed that they had decided they would do the special the following weekend instead and asked me for another $58. We would never have come on the weekend except for the special - being retired we are mid-week campers. So we left after one night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

KOA's are not required to offer this promo but we believe as a VKR member you deserve to get your free night. We advertise and honor it on a different wknd. If we didn't many would not be able to participate as we are full of hunters the 2nd weekend in Sept. The staff, our website & your confirmation clearly indicated the 2nd night was not free.

Everyone was very helpful. We appreciated the lists of things to do and the day trips suggested. One I would add to the list is the Cranberry Museum in Grayland. The pizza was good too, and how much more convenient can that be to have it delivered? Thanks!

Enjoyed the whimsical sense of humour with elves/trolls everywhere and Sasquatch, etc. Watched sunset from beach. We’d love to come back sometime.

This place is terrific in all ways! Have stayed there twice this year and will return anytime I'm in the area!!

Nice place, they have done extra with the trail to beach and the grounds. Spaces are not as crowded as some KOA spots, dog friendly, and lots of trees. We had a great time and would definitely go back!

Campground is nicely kept and staff is great. Bathrooms are very clean. We didn’t care for the local traffic in and out using the store.

Rustic campground, very quiet and peaceful. Management and staff all extremely pleasant and helpful. We were a little disappointed there was no pool. However, campground is close to the ocean.

This place is a real gem!! Already planning a return!

Nice campground. Very small. Not much to do in the area, and beach is too muddy for walking/exploring. Great place to stop for overnight enroute but not an extensive stay.

We are sorry we missed the opportunity to share with you the dozens of museums, lighthouses, restaurants, hiking, kayaking, fishing & shopping that are within 40 min of the campground. Be sure to ask about our day trip guides when you visit. There are pictures of the beach online please check them out. It is a tidal bay that is great for digging steamer clams, walking,collecting agates & sea glass

Second time back, planning on coming often. Hosts are great, they have a good thing going. Clamming is great, site is smaller which is nice. Kids can ride bikes without having to dodge cars all the time. Sites are clean the store has some supplies in case you forget.
