Conveniently located next to the Redwood Hwy making for easy day trips to the hiking trails and scenic routes. The downside to the location is that you do hear the traffic along the hwy. The site is kept clean and the grounds are well maintained though the grass areas at the campsites are not lush. The pool area and other facilities are great and the staff is very friendly and helpful!

Cabin was nice. Did have a problem with ants in the kitchen. Some lightbulbs missing. Other than that neat and clean. Friendly staff

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

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.

Dirty, dilapidated, disorganized. Overpriced.

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.

We rented a cabin. It was 84 degrees upon arrival, even hotter in the loft where our children had to sleep. It was dirty, broken items, curtains fell down, kitchen utensils and pans missing and only 1 coffee cup for 3 adults. Had to go to office for toilet paper and trash bag. The pool was very murky. All in all, can't believe we spent 450.00 for 2 nights there!! Will not stay in a KOA cabin again

Walked in and you could see dirt, food on the floor you could feel the dirt under your feet. Dried food stuck to the counter tops and tables. Food lodged in both sink drains. We have been coming here for 6 years and have never found the place this dirty. Dining table for two with four chairs not practical. Folks nice, cabins can show wear, for 230.00 a night I expect clean very disapointed

We love the Benbow KOA and have stayed there many times. This was the first time we stayed in the tiny room with a so called double bed. That room was equivalent to a prison cell. Horrible bed!

A bit of a mix up when we first arrived, but Kaitlin and Michelle quickly resolved the problem and went above and beyond to make our stay spectacular! Thank you again, Ladies! -Patty

This was our second stay here and we love the proximity to Avenue of the Giants. I feel like things in the cabin were a bit run down. For instance, our can opener was broken, and so was the one in the cabin next to us (found out when they came over to borrow us). Things seemed a bit dirty. Pool was quite crowded. My husband thinks the sites are too close together. Still w will come back, probably.

We rented a cabin at the lovely Benbow KOA. The staff were friendly and helpful. Cabin clean with everything we needed. The bed was uncomfortable for old folks like us, but we were camping, after all. Will bring a pad next time. Loved that air conditioner!

We stay there two nights. It's great. stuffs were very nice and friendly.

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

Had a great time! Delux cabin was fun to stay in and maintenance staff attentive to our questions and were friendly while assisting us!

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

Loved staying here!

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

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.
