I really enjoyed the Benbow KOA. It is big and beautiful and lots of nature around. I only wish the hot tub was open later than 8pm. That seems very early. Also the lodge at Benbow has the worst bar and restaurant service ever!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, the hot tub is locked up at 8pm because the office closes at that time. Starting May 1, it is open until 10pm, as the office is open until 10pm. I will pass on your feedback about the bar next door. Thanks.

We were at Benbow with our Good Sam RV Group. We enjoyed the sunny weather playing washers and visiting.

It is always nice to have your group stay with us. See you next year!

Great place. Only bad mark would be that the store was one of the least stocked KOA stores I’ve seen. Maybe because it’s off season? Not even orange juice. But beyond that the store should have more offerings. Other than that all was good!! We will be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We normally have juice. In fact, we just got a delivery of fresh fruits and vegetables. I'm sorry we had limited stock when you visited.

Pricey for what you get and WHERE. Many things not working in cabin ie 2/3 Tv's, bedside light. Slat across toilet..? Working? Very limited supplies. Friendly staff

Thank you for the feedback. Two weeks before your arrival, we did our annual maintenance/cleaning. We will be going through the unit today to ensure this doesn't continue. Please, let us know if you ever have concerns while you are here. We like to address any issues right away.

Beautiful grounds with all the amenities and then some! The two ladies who worked at the registration & storefront were very courteous and accommodating. Plan to go to the office area for decent wifi tho'. Otherwise, one of the nicest & best places we've stayed!

Our 5th wheel height is 13’3” with a permanently upright TV antenna that has already been broken by low hanging tree branches. The reserved site that was assigned to us wouldn’t accommodate our RV because of low hanging tree branches. Many of the sites wouldn’t accommodate our RV because of its height. All of the RV resort’s trees need to be trimmed. RV pads & roadways were all too narr

THIS TIME OF YEAR ITS REALLY GREAT BECAUSE LESS PEOPLE. NICE AND QUIET!

This was a last minute trip we took to get out town for weekend. The office help was very friendly and know what they were doing. The grounds around the sites were a little dug up and muddy from the rain. It was very quiet and nice weather.

Mostly quiet. Had to upgrade to deluxe site to fit. Rig took up ALL site and stuck out in road about a foot. Would have thought person taking reservation would know that and give a bigger site.
Feb 20, 2020
It was fine for a stopover. I was placed right next to another van which felt a bit invasive. I was able to park in such a way that our living areas weren’t in each other’s view.

One of the cleanest KOAs around. Great staff.
Feb 19, 2020
I actually HAVE already recommended it to a friend.

When you book a 40+ foot rig like ours, you might try to upsell to one of your end sites with the table and fireplace. Your sites are somewhat narrow for large units to enter and exit without rolling onto the grass. Not a big deal. We really enjoyed our stay. Great job to all who work there! Very nice staff.

We had a great experience! The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were there on a Friday night and they had a party in the Community room that was rockin’ fun! They had hot dogs, beer and wine available. Best of all was the Reggae Band from Eureka “Irie Rockers” that played! They were a Blast! Thank You All!! Can’t wait to visit again�

Thank you for joining the party!

It was o.k. The water pressure was super low even though there was hardly anyone there. We had the last spot in the whole campground with tons of shade and it’s winter so you would think they would give us a sunny spot and at least one space between us and our neighbors since it wasn’t busy at all. Also on the way out they should have the dumpsters open. The only ones open where on the way

Sorry you were disappointed. Next time, please come see us and let us know so that we can make it better while you are here. There are plenty of sites open this time of year and we would be happy to find one you liked better. It is our goal that all campers are happy and we will accommodate if we ca

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.
