Staff was very polite and accommodating. Michelle was particularly thoughtful with regard to a personal family situation. Super cute cabin too. We missed the reclining bikes that some KOAs have and we missed fire pit at site. Couldn't make s'mores � We go to many KOAs

We loved the area of the campground. We would stay here again. The cabin we had was clean. The last night we stayed there someone in a trailer pulled in late and used there generator until after midnight, sounded like they where running a car without a muffler right next to our cabin.

Loved it! The cabin was clean and comfy. I only wish the golf course had been open. But mother nature had other ideas. We'll be back!!

The kitchen wasn’t well equipped. Too restrictive on data and it smelled like cigarettes.

I was told I was getting a 2 br. 1.5 baths with a riverfront view, on the phone about 1 week before I arrived. I was given a 1 bedroom with a loft and couch bed, no riverfront. The cabin was furnished poorly, mix match chairs, dishes, not enough towels. Customer service was not good either. They didn’t even have milk in their store. Please don’t go there, not worth it.

I rented a cabin for 5 people. It was rainy so were eager to enjoy the hot tub and cabin. Upon check-in learned the spa was down. Staff forgot to give us key to cabin and had to go back in rain and get it. Once inside: there were only 2 towels and 1 washcloth, no T.P. No blankets for loft and couch bed & not enough Wi-Fi codes for adults. Defective coffee maker & staff pushed us to leave in A.M

Cute stand alone #44 cabin on the river. Very small but fine for 2. No place to hang clothes.

Not happy. No off leash dog area, despite website and literature claiming it did. Right off highway. Not a nice campground. Deluxe cabin was run down. Not welcoming, the vibe was off. We love Koa’s and stayed the next in the Cloverdale Koa, which was lovely!

My stay in the Benbow KOA was very pleasant. A quiet campground in a beautiful setting. The front desk people were awesome friendly and very professional.

No blankets in cabin upon arrival. Some amenities listed did not exist (dog run) or were not working (hot tub). Electrical switches in cabin not wired correctly. Hot water not quite hot enough. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Needs some attention to facilities

Our stay at the Benbow KOA was the highlight of our year. The staff and personel were phenomenal, and fixed any issues that we had, and were professional and courteous during our stay. Our cabin at the property was in the location that we requested, right next to the river. We will be recommending this property to our camping friends, and will gladly stay at this property again in the future.

Cabin was cold. Hot tub was cold. Layout of cabin had potential. Kids loved the loft. Would probably be better for a warmer weather visit.

Cabin was Ok

Heating wasn’t working upon arrival. Since we arrived late, the issue couldn’t be fixed until the next day. There was not extra toilet in bathroom. Cabin sleeps 5 ppl but only 2 towels in bathroom. Had to ask for extra and never came. It was a beautiful place and nice ppl there tho. I wish the pool table area and hot tub were open a little bit later in the night to enjoy. Thank you!

Love going to Benbow KOA. Very relaxing. This time it was for a family gathering. All the siblings loved it and will continue to come. The staff is very friendly and if needed, helpful. Good place to stroll around and make new friends. We have rented a cabin 3 times in the last 6 months. Yep, we like it! Thanks everyone for making our stay a good experience!

Cabin was very dirty. We were moved to another cabin which had no toilet paper and dirty tub, toilet and kitchen. This is our first bad experience at this location
Oct 10, 2018
We stayed in one of the cabins- awesome stay, beautiful area. The people were very friendly and of immediate assistance when we needed something. Thank you!

When we checked in, our cabin was filthy. It looked like they just changed the sheets and towels, and emptied the trash. The floor was not even swept nor mopped. We had to do that. The tables and kitchen counters were dirty and sticky. The carpet at the loft was not vacuumed. There were M&Ms on the floor. The bathroom was filthy. Urine spots on the toilet, hairs on the sink, dirty towels.

The cabin was very dirty. I set my shirt on the night stand, and when I picked it up it was covered in LARGE amounts of dust. The silverware also had food stuck to it. The outdoor facilities were clean and nice, except the pools heater was broken, so my kids were very disappointed. If the cabin wasn't filthy, I would definitely come back. Unfortunately I spent my first day cleaning on my vacation.

Stayed in a "river front" cabin for 1 night. Had a poor view of the river and the camp ground was in disrepair. The unit was extremely dusty. Dust was caked on to the ceiling fans and all horizontal surfaces. The windows were full of cob webs and the floor had not been cleaned in some time. I was very disappointed.

Reserv agent Robert picked perfect cabin, friendly knowledgeable staff & mgmt, super clean facilities all provided a great trip for us "non-camping" gals. Winning this KIXE auction Glamping pkg was the best investment ever. A win-win! Wonderful respit from Redding fires too. Will be back again.

Cabin was perfect for my 2 children and myself. The area was beautiful and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would have given 5 stars but the Cabin was a little dirty when we arrived. It had old candy in the window seal and lots of dust/ dirt on the floor still and there was no broom to sweep it up with.
Sep 17, 2018
Great venue, we will be back for sure! We liked that it is a smaller camp ground but it has all the amenities! Our favorite KOA to date!
Sep 17, 2018
Great campground very nice time!
Sep 05, 2018
The cabins are way too expensive for the low quality. They were not super clean. The campsites are very close together.

I regret that we did not meet your expectations.

Facilities were very nice, however, we paid $249/night for a deluxe cabin and were without power from 2 pm on a Saturday thru Sunday when we checked out. We notified staff and someone came and flipped the main power switch but never asked us if everything was working or not...When we came back later that night from a wedding at the Inn, the cabin was completely dark...we were pretty unhappy

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry that you had power problems and I appreciate the positive comments. I have discussed your power problem with the maintenance staff to insure that it does not happen again.

The campground is great nice and clean. But the queen beds in the cabins are very hard. I am handicapped. So this was not good for me. I have severe arthritis in my knees hips and spine so these hard beds hurt me. Other then that the kids really enjoyed their stay. Our cabin was right next to the playground which was amazing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I regret to hear that the bed did opt meet your expectations but I thank you for your otherwise positive comments. Let us know in advance of your next visit and we will do our best to accommodate your handicap.

Our cabin was dirty. We don’t smoke and when we showed up there were 3 cigarettes butts in an ash tray on the back patio table, with a patio chair pulled out where someone just left. The floors were dirty in cabin and under the bed was filthy. One of our bath towels had a brown streak done the middle of it. For $225 a night we didn’t expect the uncleanliness.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I very much regret that we did not meet your expectations. Please call me to discuss. Corky Gilbert, Manager

The shared facilities were good. The cabin itself although "deluxe" and pricy was missing a few essentials which seemed to indicate some maintenance is lacking. The gas grill was in very deteriorated condition, there was no cutting board or paper towels which I have gotten in other "fully furnished" KOA cabin rentals, the spatula was damaged, the bathroom did not have a curtain for privacy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay and regret that the cabin did not fully meet your expectations. I have passed your comments along to insure that it does not happen again.

Staff was very helpful, grounds well kept and clean. The campground was full and all the campers were courteous and quiet. I booked short notice and was able to get 3 cabins for our group. The cabins were like apartments with full size kitchen appliances and a nice queen bed! Recommend replacing the sofa bed in unit 404 and having a broom and dust pan. Over all we had a nice time there.

we had a great time, stayed in a deluxe cabin with accommodations for 6. it was a pretty tight squeeze but it worked. kitchen and bathroom were stocked with towels, plates, cups, utensils, and cookware, wish I would have known because we brought everything with us. the staff were helpful and friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your nice comments; glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. Hope to see you again soon.

The cabin wasn’t very clean. There was a really bad ant problem. The ants got in to our things.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very sorry to hear about the ants. We have notified the pest control company to increase the frequency of their applications to the maximum allowed under state and federal regulations.
Aug 13, 2018
At $200 per night I would expect that the frig be cleaned before we arrived and that the deluxe cabin be deluxe and not smelly. The adjacent river is basically dry now that the State of California has taken away 1/2 the water that once ran through it. The area is extremely dry now, not green as in pictures. This KOA is way past its heyday, but is packed because there is nothing else around.

CONS: Our 'delux' cabin was tiny. I had to dust the bathrooms when I got there - the layer was white it was so thick. Their wifi - was deplorable, I could only get wifi for 35 seconds on one of the 5 days we spent there. This was NOT mentioned in their brochure. Spa was tiny, water park a joke - and only worked on last 2 days. No broom in cabin so had to deal with sandy floors! Staff polite
Aug 12, 2018
Someone else was in our cabin when we arrived. I had 2 kids with me & had to wait until 8:30PM to get in our cabin (3 hours) & it smelled. The cabin was still dirty after staff cleaned it & my kids sheets had dirt all over them. There was 1/2 roll of toilet paper & no dish washing detergent. Staff was suggesting I was the previous campers dishes. I was offered a bottle of wine which was nice

The condition of your cabin did not meet Benbow KOA standards and I apologize for the inconvenience. Please call me to discuss the problems you mention. Corky Gilbert, Benbow KOA General Manager.

I was very disappointed in my stay, as we walked in the cabin it looked very run down. Overpriced for dirty conditions/ants. Last year we rented a cabin here and was very happy, but 2 days ago This cabin had a very bad ant problem, ants in the microwave, we woke up at 4am with ants on us in our beds, moldy shower curtain, and the base of the toilet was had urine and hair on it, dirty floors etc

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am very sorry about the ant problem. We have had the exterminators in regularly but we often cannot spray inside the cabins because guests are there. We did comp your room by way of apology and I hope you will give us another chance.
