Great place to stay. Iris and Ken are the best hosts around. The improvements they have made are beautiful. Can't wait to go back.

Best place in the state to stay. Clamming, store friendly staff, hikes, bikes, campfires, and more.

Camp is best run camp I have found. Staff is extremely accommodating and really add to the atmosphere. Clamming is magnificent. Have been coming to this KOA for about 20 years, and will continue to do so with my sons, and now my grandsons.

Although our stay was cut short due to the rain and us being in a tent, we still really enjoyed the location and the hosts were very accommodating. We will definitely return when the weather is nicer and will get ourselves one of the pet friendly cabins! :)

We were warmly greeted by our happy host for our Fri/Sat stay in a nice cozy clean cabin. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Host gave us some wonderful dinning tips when we inquired. Overall a great stay. We will be back again for sure! Thank you~

Well taken care of property and the staff were extremely friendly. Wood bundles were a little expensive for the type of wood because it burned really fast. We had a great time though the water was really close!!

Our favorite KOA ever. So beautiful, peaceful, and Iris, Ken et al are delightful. Didn't want to leave, so we're going back for a week soon.

Mud hole. managers very friendly. Park well maintained. But a big mud hole.


We sure do understand your comment regarding the mud. Unfortunately Mother Nature has blessed us with 8.2 feet of rain, a historical amount not seen in 124 years. Gravel is just disappearing into the roads. We are being thoughtful to place people in the driest spots available.

The campground hosts were wonderful, the grounds clean and well maintained. Very interesting landscaping, with a fun touch of humor. Access to the beach and yummy clams, plus beautiful sunsets. Can't wait to stay there again. Highly recommend.

A mud hole due to lack of concrete, asphalt or gravel.

This was my very first trip with a brand new camping trailer. Ken was very helpful in making sure I was hooked up to power, water, and sewer properly. I had a wonderful stay, even in the rain. The store was able to provide me with all the things I forgot, as well.

Wonderful staff, great sites, beautiful location to get away. Stayed mid week, early season. Very quiet.

While the campground itself was immaculate, Ken and Iris truly made the difference. Upon arrival, we were kindly welcomed not only with our name on the whiteboard outside, but by my husband's magnetic logogifted in a previous visitbrandished proudly upon check-in. While deeply enamored with Baycenter, if Ken and Iris decided to move, we would certainly be following them. Highly recommended!

Nice KOA, We were greeted by Ken and Iris both. They were very nice !!! Ken got on his bike and showed us our camp site. and then help guide us in and get situated. What a nice quite location. The Bay was there and Ken rented us gear to get steamer clams the first night, they tasted excellent. We had good weather and lots of fun

Staff was very friendly. Nice size RV site, not too cramped at all! Short walking distance to the beach.
Apr 17, 2017
Everything was ready, the cabins are very clean and set up, all our camping needs are taken care of. We just love the hosts! Thank you for a great time!!

We loved our stay at Willapa Bay! The Koa was adorable and well taken care of. The staff was extremely friendly and fun to talk with. We highly recommend Kabin K4 the upgrades were perfect and very homey. Thank you for such a wonderful getaway!


We are glad you enjoyed the new patio, gas grill and TV in K4. Thanks for camping with us.

Very nice and friendly campground hosts. They have a private trail to a beach with clam beds and that's pretty cool. We will be back.

I had a blast. Everyone on the staff was friendly and welcoming. I was given advice on restaurants nearby that was great. I enjoyed my stay and want to go back with friends and family. Thank you to the Bay Center KOA!!

This is the third consecutive year we've stayed at Bay Center KOA for our annual elk hunting trip. The staff is courteous and helpful. The accommodations are just right for our needs.

Stayed here twice now, and will be staying here again soon. Another good stay overall. It rains constantly there...if rain/wind is in the forecast, stay in a cabin and not a yurt...very noisy, didn't sleep well. Grounds are soggy and muddy in places too. Staff was friendly as usual, though one employee was a little grumpy :0)

Owner is nice and very helpful.

Enjoyable weekend. I had a rough night before leaving to go to our KOA. I left cooking tools at home. No problem. The owners loaned us what we needed. Thank you very much for the help and the experience!

Fantastic small campground. Local owner that takes an interest in their business. Has path to a beautiful beach where dogs can run free. Nearby is a small local restaurant that has fantastic seafood with amazingly reasonable prices. Went back for breakfast and an oyster omlette.
