RV Reviews

The grounds are very well cared for and everything is green and there are a lot of trees. We noticed they were cleaning the picnic tables when Campers left. My Husband used the men’s room and said it was very clean. Although due to Covid-19 the Pool and Movie night wasn’t open. The employees are all very friendly. We had a great time.

We very much enjoyed our stay.. even though the pool was closed due to COVID, the park was well maintained and very clean as well as quiet. We will definitely be coming back.

We’ve stayed at the Inn before but thanks to covid that wasn’t an option this time. The campground was as expected with friendly staff. Could use some maintenance but a welcome respite.

Trees need to be trimmed around the sites. Coaches are being scratched and damaged getting in and out of the sites.

Lovely park, nice and green at our campsite with a tall tree. Facilities were all within walking distance. We would love to come again for a longer stay. We’re Happy Campers!

Sooo much overhead freeway noise, terrible WiFi, and of course pool closed. I’m sorry, I understand Covid shutdowns but Rates should have dropped since perks were greatly reduced. No lounge tv, art/craft etc.

Awesome showers, clean camp, well maintained. However ravens got into swing-top trash can and scattered garbage around. Recommend different trash can type.

Good clean campground. We stayed in back portion in a back in. good spacing and near level. pretty quiet, beautiful surroundings with river running on one side a golf course on the other.

it was great but I wish you would in force your leash law, there were several dogs lose walking with their owners or in campsites, two times a dog came into our campsite to fight with our dogs that were on leashes

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Also, it seems as if we need a full-time employee just to monitor dogs on leashes and kids with helmets; both are state law. It is really hard to get everyone to comply. We will continue to police.

Great campground. Except wifi was a thumbs down.

Benbow KOA is always a lovely place to stay. The campground and facilities are always clean. Our family feels safe camping there and we have so much fun!

Our 4th stay this year and we'll be back. Manager and staff are great. 5-star rating compared to other RV parks. Ways to improve: Want more reliable internet, the service was disrupted many times. Asphalt needs resurfacing. New premium site patios like site 71. Would like to see Humboldt and redwood theme t-shirts and sweatshirts in the store. Extra garbage bins needed for busy periods.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us! Our new premium site is the prototype for the upgrades we hope to make next year. We do have more items coming for the store, and yes, trash pick up will be more frequent now that we can open up to travelers.

Ticks galore!!!! dog & kids got bit and we were only there over night (7hrs) and left immediately in the morning, after removing ticks from everyone!!! This property should be treating grassy areas for this issue. We have been traveling for 3 weeks & this was NOT the best KOA we have stayed in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry you got ticks! We have not seen any ticks in the park nor had any other reports. However, if you were down at the river, that is not an area we have any control over.

1..INTERNET...VERY SUBSTANDARD...with today’s technology available and the fact you offer it....the system NEEDS UPGRADED with boosters inside the parking areas nearer and around the RVs. Major Complaints. 2. Cable TV...is very Substandard. All sites were terrible. 3. Otherwise.. the park is beautiful and nice and I would return.
May 22, 2020

Ants everywhere...needs much improvement

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Very sorry that the ants were so bad that it completely ruined your stay. We have not seen any ants in public areas or other buildings. We will check the site you stayed in. Next time, please let us know so that we can take action while you are here to try to make your stay better.

Benbow is a great place to stay, but The golf course needs a little TLC. When we go there we enjoy golfing.

The garbage canin direct view was overflowing for the 4 days we were at this resort.disgusting!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Agreed. Unfortunately, there was a mix up with the garbage company so all we could do was try to keep it as clean as possible until they could come pick it up.
May 18, 2020
Just wishing we were able to use the hot tub, but that was out of Benbow’s control. So glad they were open!
May 18, 2020
Just lovely! Thank you! Again, I wish the price was a bit less when all facilities are closed due to the Shelter order but so grateful for our getaway!
May 18, 2020
The stay was very good. The only downfall, was rain and winter conditions, poor wifi and cable. It was fun watching the young families and children enjoy the park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. Being so rural has some disadvantages, but glad you stayed anyway.

It was our wedding day, got a late start getting on the road we so Couldn’t make it, called to see if we could get a refund... was DENIED! Not even a partial credit...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, you called the day after you were to arrive. Our denial was in accordance with all KOA policies. If you had arrived as planned you would have seen that we decorated your picnic table and had a bottle of complimentary wine waiting as a congratulations.
