Site was beautiful, but too small for my trailer and car. Had to park my car off the pavement in the mud. All utilities worked, but the hose bib was only about 10 inches off the ground and pointed down, so was difficult -- and half the handle was broken off and it leaked. The sewer connection was raised about 6 inches above the ground, so the sewer water did not drain from the sewer hose.

Thank you for your feedback. I looked it up and we will go take a look at the site to make repairs. Next time, please let us know, there are plenty of sites and we would be happy to find a better one for you.

Too bare.. wanted more of a camping experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We do have most camping amenities and are on the banks of the river with mountains all around us so not sure how to interpret your need for more of a camping experience. The winter is cold and wet and there is not as much going on in the campground but it is still our goal for all campers to enjoy themselves here. Sorry we fell short of that.

The bathrooms and facilities are clean and the staff are friendly. However, the lack of community dish washing stations, and hot water in the bathroom sinks, made the environment seem cold on an already wind exposed campground that’s mostly concrete and cabins.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. We are checking into the water in the bathrooms and we will consider a community dish washing station.

It's a very beautiful koa however the staff were very unpleasant. Not all, most the younger kids working there were nice but the older staff who seemed to be the ones in charge were extremely rude.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am very sorry to hear that you thought the staff was rude. All of us are here because we enjoy people and the lifestyle and it is not in our nature to be rude. Sometimes there are issues or problems and we may be more focused on those while the others take care of the guests and maybe that was perceived as rude. We will be more mindful of this going forward.

It was just overnight. Nice park.
Dec 07, 2019
Sites are too narrow, price is too high, roads are rough, too many street lights, folks working the desk were great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry you were disappointed, it is an older park so may be more narrow. Since we are in a rural area it can get very dark so we have street lights for safety. I'm glad to hear the staff was good. Happy Holidays.

We stayed in a nice site, space 65. The park is well maintained and has a friendly and helpful staff, Rene, Kailyn, Icely, and Robert to name a few. We plan on returning many times in the future

We had an awesome two night stay in a premium RV pull through site. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The location is pretty good, a short drive in between the avenue of giants and Richardson grove.

Thank you for stopping in, we hope you return.

Stayed Nov 27 (winter weather). Good access to site and all hook ups worked.

Very nice when not packed.

It was very nice, we stayed at the park on the off season so it wasn’t crowded.

The customer service was great, cheerful, polite and knowledgeable on the area. This area was a friendly, lovely stay. Great job to the staff and maintenance.
Nov 21, 2019
Peacefull. Pads were a little small but we made it work. Will be back.
Nov 20, 2019
Nice site, wonderful employees. Love the hotel/bar/restaurant across the highway when we don't feel like cooking or want a drink. The site shows its age a bit, but then, so are we!!! The golf course makes a lovely backdrop.
Nov 20, 2019
No power or water. It was not there camps fault but made the stay not so nice. They did give a slight discount

I'm sorry but the PG&E outages were just no fun for any of us.

I stayed at site 79 and I found out in a very unpleasant way that the septic was clogged. I reported the mess to the office and all I was offered was a guy with a hose to help water it down. Didn’t even offer to move me to another site. I had stayed here before and had a very nice visit. Probably won’t stay here again.
Nov 16, 2019
Well maintained. 18 hole golf course and a short walk to the historic inn for a nightcap!
Nov 11, 2019
We love Benbow RV. the only problem this time was there was some kind of water leak in the grass in front of our Motorhome, so we were fighting mud all the time. I am sure they will find and fix it as they are a great place to stay and they always try to make everything great.

Enjoyed hospitality and ease of check in. My site 54 had water leak with constant spray. Like see some infrastructure upgrade. Bathrooms adequate but some showers had clogged drains.

Had two days and felt very relaxed. The folks who ran the KOA where so friendly... The parking was level,and solid...my go to winter and summer camp...
Nov 04, 2019
Everyone is friendly/ welcoming.....weather was perfect. Great facility. Am sure we will see you again. Thank you
Nov 03, 2019
I had problems with my RV and couldn’t leave by 12, but they didn’t get on my case about it, no extra money.
Nov 03, 2019
Could not be happier. We had not planned to be at the Benbow. But when our town was evacuated due to the Kincaid Fire they welcomed us with open arms and were more then accommodating.

They knew the power was going to be going out in an hour and charged us the full rate for full hookups, after I paid they said oh yeah the power will be out in 1 hour and no you can’t get a refund. I got angry and demanded a refund, they once again refused so I made a huge scene in front of the line of customers and they gave me a refund after the customer behind me said they were leaving also.
Oct 30, 2019
Very lovely place to stay. Super friendly staff and very easy to park. Pull thru’s are a breeze. Will return in the future.

Couldn't connect to the WIFI. Many dogs off leash. Perhaps they might consider having guests sign an agreement to maintain their pets like the Crescent City KOA does.

We stayed overnight in a deluxe cabin on a short trip to see friends and the redwoods in Humboldt State Park. Making the reservation was easy by phone and very pleasant. The cabin had a living area with tv, full kitchen, bathroom with tub and hair dryer, and a bedroom with queen bed and another tv. There was a porch in front and a deck area with table and chairs facing a beautiful view of the creek. There was also a grill. The cabin was spotlessly clean and fully equipped. I loved that they supplied lots of fluffy towels. There’s a tunnel under the highway leading to the Benbow Inn if you want to have dinner, a drink, or tea there. We had dinner at Cecils New Orleans Bistro. Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer. We’ll definitely be back!

Great camping site if all you want to do is just sit by your RV all day long! Nothing much to do but sit and chat. Winter time is not busy at all. They have full hookup, cabins and extremely well kept restrooms and showers. The office staff is nice and very welcoming. Just don't forget your wine, water and bottle opener.
