Didn’t sleep well with neighbors music after midnight both nights. At other KOA’S the host would drive around to let campers know to turn off music. Went to watch movie and people were smoking there. Not happy about that either. Cigarette butts and dog poop in campsite when we arrived.

Pretty good campground, we didn't use any of the facilities but we walked to the river (under the freeway). Reasonably quiet, plenty of stars visible when we arrived at 10pm! Easy check-in process. A bit pricey, but we would stay here again.

Freeway was noisy

It looks like a lot of the cabins were permanent residents with lots of junk. Grass was all dead at the sites. Narrow roads make it difficult to get in and out of your site.

Stayed for a 3 day weekend to explore the Avenue of the Giants and Redwoods National Park. Benbow KOA had a nice layout with larger rigs near the front entrance and smaller lots towards the back of the lot. There is bathrooms and showers right in the middle and at the front desk area. We did not get to enjoy the premises during the day but it is lively at night during the summer time.

Thank you for staying with us while exploring the area. There is so much natural beauty to explore here.

Last minute call for an overnight stay turned into a 3 night stay. Lots of places to go see from there! Easy to get in and out with a 40ft rig. We will come back, if we travel in this area again.

So glad you enjoyed this beautiful area. Hope to see you again. Safe travels!

We were very happy to get a site for two nights at the last minute. Our “interest” was to see the redwoods and walk the trails both days. It was great. The first night the “party people” near us quieted down right at 10:00. Hooray! But the second night the same groups were noisy well beyond that time. I guess some come to party and some for other reasons. Either way, we’d likely stay aga

The Inn and grounds around it are great. Not so much the RV Park. Grass was dead on sites, lots of dust. The guess staying didn’t care about social distancing and gathering in big groups, neighbor came in at 8pm and set up camp till 1:30 am. I came to get away from it all and had a neighbor spouting off his political views to all his neighbors. The area beautiful KOA needs work ran down.

Sorry you were disappointed. There is a night manager phone number you can call and we will respond. Please be sure to let us know while you are here so we can help make it better.

Facilities were satisfactory and the staff very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the premium spaces as well as most standard spaces were all dead lawns, sticker weeds and dirt. Don’t even think about golfing. The course is a dead weed patch. Yep even the Ts, fare ways, and greens. Sorry to see such decline to the park and course. I hope the owners will invest in saving these beautiful grounds

Unfortunately, we have been hit with irrigation problems 2 years in a row. Last year we lost the well and this year the new watering system was under too much pressure and blew out the irrigation underground. We have been and will continue to work on it to make it better for our guests.

Staff very friendly and there to help with any of your needs.

We love Benbow KOA. Neil and his staff are amazing and that’s why we keep coming back. You always see the staff working so hard and they are so polite to all the guests. Krissy, Dean, Winston, Roberto and Icsley are unbelievable! Neil is doing a wonderful job with his staff and getting the golf course back to the way it was several years ago. Thanks for the awesome work Benbow KOA!

This was our first KOA stop on our RV adventure and we loved the campground! Our site was really nice, we appreciated the table, chairs and lawn to hangout on. Definitely recommend reserving a Premium site. Huge shoutout to the staff here, they were beyond helpful and really friendly. Thanks again!

We are thrilled to be a part of your RV adventure and we hope the rest of the trip goes just as well.

We appreciate the safety precautions put in place at this time especially for the pool area. There was a lot of room to social distance from other campers which we appreciated. The garbage was overflowing so that could have been improved.

Our stay was great we used it as home base to see redwoods and drive out to Shelter cove and lost coast beaches.

Friendly staff and clean campsites.

Nice KOA even with the Covid-19 limitations. Who new that we would book our weekend during a state wide heat wave. It was disappointing that the grass was dead on the premium site I booked and paid a premium price for specifically for a green grass area.

It was very nice.

Organizing a weekend outing for a group of 100 is no easy task. The Benbow KOA and the staff made me look like a hero. Thank you

Our pleasure! Hope to see you all again.

Didn’t feel that the measures for the COVID were being taken very seriously. Several times I walked into the office and employees had their masks off. Also campers were coming into the office without masks and employees said nothing. The pool seemed kind of crowded as well.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We will review the mask procedures with our staff. It is a risk for all to be out and about with COVID but we are disinfecting regularly and keeping up with our county's health recommendations. Thank you for staying with us.

Great visit with family!

I traveled with my four dogs. I loved the set up with the large lawn at the perimeter of the RV sites. Other than the extremely hot weather which I did not anticipate this weekend ( a heatwave ), I would have arrived earlier . My dogs were uncomfortable on the trip up to Benbow from the Bayarea, and climbing temperatures sent us back home early. Oh well, next time...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Please do come again. We would love to have you and your dogs in some milder weather.

The employees that work at the Benbow KOA are fantastic. They work extra hard to provide a great experience for everyone. Note: Robert is wonderful!

Wish they would have separated us more. it was a nice, clean park with nice staff but they stacked us side by side. I would return it was nice.

Excellent staff. Very friendly and attentive. Premises were well maintained and kept clean. Golf course is in rough shape, so if that's the reason you are coming here, bear that in mind. We brought our clubs but decided to pass. All in all, I rate this place highly due to the staff and the premises in general. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

Very nice camp ground. We stayed in space 79 and unfortunately the highway noise was pretty loud so if we stay again i would want to be further away from the Hwy 101.

fine site / well maintained / close to the river / but road noise was a bit of an issue

A great stay. I would stay again for sure. The 2 cons were that the WiFi didn’t work well & the bathrooms are dated. That makes the bathrooms feel like they were not clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us! The back bathrooms have been remodeled but not the front ones yet. Next time, ask for a site closer to the back bathrooms.

We planned to golf but choose not to. Apparently they have gone without irrigation for over 2 months. The coarse looked terrible. Sites were also very dry with brown grass. Office staff was excellent! We didn’t reserve a premium site but I would recommend paying the extra cost and getting one. Good KOA for staying while traveling just off Hwy 101. As a destination not much for seniors to enjo

The first time we stayed @ Benbow was 8 yrs ago prior to KOA. We returned in Aug. 2020 & was surprised the ground up keep needed some attention as well as bathroom/shower (front facility). Because our travel trailer doesn't have a bathroom, we used KOA bathroom/shower daily. I can say the cleaning needs improvement. Great memory on our 1st visit.This time around it didn't feel the same. It was ok.
