Benbow KOA was ok place to stay. The lady who checked us in was not so motivated in her work. Not so great that you can do cannabis there- smells.

This was our second "Grandkid Trip" to the Benbow KOA! We had an awesome time from start to finish. Our grandsons, ages 6 and 10, enjoyed the pool, the game room and the playground. Their favorite part of our stay, however, was spending time playing along the little creek that ran behind our cabin! Richardson's Grove and Confusion Hill were also highlights of this trip. We plan to return soon

Great place for kids. Very nice pool. Very clean. Nice level site. Looks like a fun golf course, we didn’t get to play. We picked lots of black berries. Rest rooms clean and laundry room clean and reasonably priced. Large capacity machines.

Loved the KOA. Great quiet place to stay and enjoy the nature around you. Asked for a quiet spot and were happy with what was provided. Delightful young lady checked us in with a great big smile!

This is our second stay and we came specifically to stay long term at this camp. We spent 10 glorious days here and were so sad to leave.

Excellent dog walking areas. Premium sites were very nice; new lawn furniture. Overall clean campground. Although firepits were available, no fire wood was for sale at the camp store. Seasonal desk help was useless; poor to no English language. Main mens bathroom was out of service in late June, poor timing and judgement. Appears many workers focused on taking care of golf course and not the park.

Will not recommend this campground. Staff didn't speak English Store shelves were empty and little selection. Tents area was messy with garbage, our site was terrible. Families with kids yelling and screaming till 12:30am. Obviously no patrol at quiet time. It is a getto campground for the tent area.

This KOA is a nicely kept facility. Grounds and surrounding area are beautiful. The young woman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. This KOA does not cater to tent campers. The tent sites except #1 and #2 were super small and right on top of each other. We requested to be moved. We got site #2 which was nice. Wifi does NOT WORK. No dishwashing area at all which is kinda gross.

Friendly staff, large park next to a golf course and a short walk to the lovely Benbow Inn. Electricity, water, sewer, cable worked great. WiFi was a bit spotty. Bathrooms were clean and spacious. The individual spots are fairly far apart and separated by a green (sort of) lawn. One can't really fault the park for brown grass, especially when California is still in 'water conservation' mode.

Very nice RV park with great amenities.

Very unhappy with the way employees treated me!!! Got the wrong cabin that I paid for and couldn’t move me to the right cabin or credit my account!!! Very poor

Once again a great stay at the Benbow KOA. Very relaxing, fun to meet new people and just hang out.

Benbow KOA is in the coastal redwood and medrone forests. It’s pool is beautiful and a great asset for families. The Benbow Inn and Benbow golf course are connected with the Benbow KOA. The Benbow KOA is a great family weekend retreat.

This is our 3rd time staying at the Benbow KOA and it is our favorite. We were not able to hook up properly at another park about 2 hours away and the front desk attendant, Henny was able to find us a 50 amp site for 3 nights and we were so grateful that our weekend away wasn’t cut short. We actually booked to go back on our way home. The grounds are beautiful everyone is respectful and nice.

Dirty, dilapidated, disorganized. Overpriced.

This was our second bad experience here. Likely this will be our last. This time our cable connection was fried. The maintenance man actually asked us what we did wrong because it worked for the last camper. However, ours worked fine at Manchester KOA and after replacing the melted pieces, it seems to be working again. Oh well...

Very nice campground.

Poor cell service in the area and the WIFI was incredibly slow. Hopefully Benbow will upgrade their internet as it is a beautiful park and fun place to stay.

I was injured in a fall and everyone was SO nbelievably helpful. The crew is wonderful! I will reccomend it to all my friends.

I enjoyed my stay very much. The staff is very friendly efficient and caring. I would definitely stop there again should I have her go that way. A real treasure.

Quiet and clean. The freeway could be heard from our campsite, but that didn’t bother me.

Stay was great, however, the men's room seemed to be always out of toilet paper and/or clogged. In reference to the golf course, I wish we were able to play the golf course earlier than 8 am and that there were signs that pointed you to the next tee box. It took a little bit to figure out were T3, and T5, T7 were...

It was so noisy after 10:00 I called the office with no answer. Dogs were barking non stop . We stay here often and this was the worst with the new management. The lady in front of me at check in was complaining about the people that live there with their trashy trailers and how filthy the bathroom was. Very disappointing.

The cabin room desperately needs a thorough cleaning. The AC was disgustingly dirty, obvious filter has not been changed in a long time. 2 office staff leaving at 6:30pm did not want to deal with paramedics coming in for injured guest. As KOA member I stayed at many KOAs going up the CA and OR coast. This was the most unclean one that I stayed at. Disappointing for KOA standards.

Electricity was intermittent, after 8 p.m. We pushed tightly on the metal panel and electricity came back on for a while, then off. Maintenance had gone home. They said they could not do anything anyway without turning power off the entire campground. They offered another site, but we had already settled in with dinner and were tired. Location is pretty, but not worth the trouble.

This place was a disastrous. The staff and owner were very rude, short, and un educated about local attractions(employee kicked in doors to cabin, yelled at by drunk owner from her car 60ft away) Hand out phamplets were dated back to 2017. And the bathrooms were disgusting. Hadnt been cleaned in days. Broken rv parts litter the ground. And they rented out or spot when we went to town. WORST KOA...

We were really disappointed-again. This is the strangest campground. We pulled up to a green pool that had to be drained. (mid July?) We had been told on the phone there would be a ton of activities for kids. There were none. The "cabins" are occupied by revolving employees that work across the street at the hotel. Junky cars, cats, old tents in front of cabins? Did not feel like a KOA at all.
Jul 22, 2019
Well great place had a great time. The only thing was the grass needed to be watered and the WiFi was supper slow you need to upgrade. It was faster without it.
Jul 22, 2019
Very clean, quaint & friendly staff.
Jul 22, 2019
A lot of deferred maintenance and dirty bathrooms and no WiFi anywhere! This was a work trip and not even their WiFi at their customer provided PC in the registration area worked!
Jul 22, 2019
They provide fire wood but only a few premium sites have fire pits. They had to close the pool because the water was green. They had to drain it...obviously, the maintenance was poor. They also need some new lounge chairs for the pool. It's okay for 1 or 2 nights...we were here for 5 nights.
Jul 22, 2019
Very noisy campground. Site we were given wasn't all that desirable due to being located right where all traffic comes into campgrounds. However staff was nice and restrooms were clean.
Jul 22, 2019
Grass in campsites is dead, golf course is in poor condition, pool looked a little green and the girls at the front desk didn't seem to know what they were doing. I requested a campsite near the front and was given #83 when I called and made the reservation when i got there I was given# 68 and they didn't really explain why the change didn't seem to care.
