staff very helpful----the park is beginnig to show its age---drought conditions doesnt help ---sites could use additional gravel and leveling---hopefully some rain will give the grounds much need help---stayed twice and would return---

I arrived a few minutes before the office closed and it was dark which made it difficult to find my assigned spot - it would've been nice if the person hopped into a golf cart and allowed me to follow her directly to the site but instead I drove around for about 45 minutes. The sites were very close together but fortunately I had very considerate neighbors. The bathrooms were beautiful!

We had a great one-night stay at the Benbow KOA. It was our first stay at a KOA campground and we were impressed by the amenities. We didn't use the pool or anything, but I'm sure had we stopped in after a longer time on the road or dry camping that the campground would have been a welcome respite. We will definitely be back and have already started recommending it to fellow campers we know.

Thank you for visiting. We hope you can visit again during our warm summer months for a relaxing day by the pool!

The power pedestal was not working for my 30 amp service. I called the night manager and he came to check it out and said he was not an electrician and was not able to fix the problem, He offered another site but as you know once you are set up you do not want too move your motor home.. We left earlier the next morning so I was not able to speak to managements about a prorate price on my site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. We understand it is not desirable to change sites after arrival. We appreciate your understanding in not being able to get an electrician out that night. We wanted to at least offer an option to move. Please reach out to us so we can offer a discounted stay next time.

It is a beautiful, safe, clean campground. We had reservations at a “resort” 6 miles north and when we showed up there we were afraid to get out of our RV. We drove to Benbow and walked into the KOA office and they got us in immediately and gave us a reduced rate to make up for our bad experience up the road! The Kamp K9 was exactly what my dogs wanted and needed! This place is WONDERFUL!

I am a 51 year old retired man. Since the second i checked in it was nothing but a hassle. I had a 4 night stay and every night i went to my room i was locked out. I had to deal with Jared the manager who had a very unfriendly attitude. The room had spider webs all over and a moldy mildew smell. Keep driving north and stay somewhere else not worth it!!!!

We are sorry we could not accept your Long Term Stay Request at that time. When you locked your key inside, and I brought you another, I warned about returning the old key to not cause program issues with the door. When old keys are used, the system locks for safety. - Justin Benbow KOA Manager

Nice place to stay.

Site was littered with trash. Electric box cover was torn off a long time ago. All asphalt was seriously degraded and in need of repair. Our site did not have any tv çable connection. No one has invested any money in this park for a lot of years and it really shows. Charging $70 a night is overpriced. Trash was picked up. Refunded $20 for no cable tv.

This is a nice KOA. Well maintained, pool and spa are nice, and the people are friendly and helpful. We come here at least a couple of times a year and It's good.

Beautiful setting. Courteous and efficient staff.

It was fine. We have stayed at Benbow many times over the years - beginning back some thirty-five years when we had young children. It was beautiful, a lovely place to be. It has gone downhill over the years. We stayed in a prime site this time. It was spacious and comfortable, but everything seemed worn and uncared for. Broken lamp posts, tired or dead landscaping. They need to up their game.

Nice open and well kept camp ground. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely will go back

We are a little too big for space but made it work. We are 43 ft. Plus truck and compact car

The tent site was the worst I stayed at, probably ever. Could not even park by the site. $56 is tied with the most I ever paid for a site. I’d expect more. The bathrooms were clean and close though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the feedback. Our Rates are due to our Ameneties like Pool, Hot Tub, Store, and Free Showers. Our two tent sites parking is nearby about 25 yards, we do allow our guests to unload at the site, but being on the road we cannot park there to enable large RVs to pass by.

The cabin was cozy. We often choose the cabin option at KOA and I did expect a little more in the way of amenities. For example, the room sleeps 4 but there were only 2 bowls for cereal. Only one full sized plate. I would not insist on matching silverware but enough to go around. Didn't compare well with other KOAs. The water was nice and hot, the towels were fresh and thick. Mostly good stay.

A bit of noise from the highway. More than we remember from prior visits. May be back for an overnight when we pass through.
Sep 22, 2021
Very nice, well kept KOA. Cable TV not working. They promised twice they would check it. They never did. No WiFi reception even though our site was very close to the office. They offered to sell us data by a local provider.
Sep 22, 2021
They put us on a site that was too short to accommodate our vehicle and trailer. Overflow parking was at opposite end of campground. We have disabilities and this was not convenient. Offered to move us after we were completely set up and only staying one night. Should have had propper site size at start. .

Everyone was pleasant, but the men’s showers had 3 out of 5 stalls with issues. Handicapped was closed outright, one stall had the shower head broken and one stall had the bench broken from the wall mounts. Pretty poor when charged $75 a night…

Very helpful and friendly staff. Unfortunately the infrastructure, grounds, and golf course are in desperate need of repair and irrigation. The sprinkler system in the sites sprayed more water on my vehicles rather than the dead lawn. Now I have to wax and rub the water spots out. Ouch! It’s a shame to see this beautiful park and area deteriorate so rapidly over time and neglect.

Nice facility and very friendly staff. Could use better lighting within the park (several broken lights) and better lighting on the walkway to / from the Benbow Inn.
Sep 20, 2021
Very nice-we enjoyed it there. Clean bathrooms, helpful staff, nice to walk to the Benbow Inn. Only disappointment was the golf course was not green and I believe this was necessary because of water rationing.

Beautiful place. Employees were super friendly. All dogs were quiet all night. Great stay. On site Propane was awesome. I saw that the staff delivered a tank to another guest once it was filled. Rob Luis

Parties after 10pm. No rule compliance. When asked it was up to us to monitor.

Staff very friendly and helpful,are site #98 was good table could have been wiped down fire pile still had burnt wood in are feeling is it should have been cleaned out. I have to say it’s one of the roomiest KOA we have stayed at, the pool was very clean. We will stay again was a very nice camp ground area. Thanks!

The staff was really helpful and the place was very clean and easy to get around. The pool and laundry facilities were really nice and together so we could hang out at the pool while doing laundry. Also awesome that everyone was masked very friendly.

We truly enjoyed our stay here...the campground was full, but the people in the campground were respectful and it felt a family get together! The staff worked hard to accommodate our changing schedule to get us on our way...hey, golf, camping and fun...what more can you ask for?
