So much fun clean grounds

For our first time camping. We had an amazing time. The restroom and all community activities were very clean. Staff members were very polite and helpful. We especially liked the arts and crafts lady. My 5 years old twin boys especially liked the bouncy pillow and swimming pool. Thanks koa for the great experience. We will see you again soon.

Short one night stay on a bicycle tour of Sonoma and Marin. Your KOA is a great place to stop. Thank you.

Awesome location and facilities, especially for the price!

This was my first time taking my kids camping as a single parent, and all of the amenities and easy access of this site made it a really positive experience for all us.

Stayed the night in a tent. Not sure about the site that was given to us because it looked a bit dirty from the previous people that had stayed and it was muddy compared to other tent sites that had a grassier area. Other than that, it was a quiet and peaceful stay, restrooms kept very clean, and loved that it was very dog friendly.

Enjoyed the campground, close to town. My site was near my friends sites. Nice bathroom and showers. The cabins are nice as well. Would stay again and recommend to others.

I’m coming to this campground 35 years. Every time I come there...... there’s something new. For the kids it is the best place. The showers , bathroom s , clean like a hotel. The people who work there are sooo professional and friendly. Really the best place for campers and kids. Go and see for your self.

$107 for a basically a space in a dirt parking lot. Not even a picnic table in our site(302). Instead? A play structure that neighboring kids loved to scream and screech starring at 6:45am. Luke warm showers. I understand supply and demand for camping in this area, but felt completely ripped off. $4.99 for a one gallon jug of water was just insult to injury. Never ever again.

This campground is right next door to a dairy so the smell was horrible and the flies were out of control. Also it was way overpriced ($100 a night) just for a tent camping spot and the spots were so small that we could barely fit our two tents in it and the sites were so close together with little to no trees that the smoke from our neighbors camp fire blew straight into our tents.


We apologize for our neighboring dairies smell. We are working with our surrounding dairies to hopefully prevent this in the future. Thank you for your feedback on tent size we will keep it in mind as we continue to make changes to the tenting area.

It was a great father daughter Halloween campout weekend. It reinforced our belief that the KOA Campgrounds are a safe place to take your. This was after a drug addict tried to break in to our camping cabin at the Willits KOA in the middle of the night over fathers day weekend.


Sorry to hear about your previous experience at willits and very happy to have you staying with us!

It was horrible. Who wants to tent camp in the middle of an RV park with streets all around. I assumed tent camping would have an area to the side, not smack in the middle. It was like putting up a tent on main street.

We loved all the activities for the kids and how safe it felt. Clean facilities and friendly staff are a plus too!

15 families rented a number of campsites. This was a very successful trip. Small suggestion: the soap dispensers in the bathroom are too high for a child to reach. Generally, the kids under 8 could not reach the soap dispenser. I left out a dish of soap for the little kids to use, and the cleaning staff removed it.


Thank you for your input. I will look for a better option for kids to use. Thank you for staying with us.

Nice place. Lots of things to do for families. Big pool and spa. Would have been nice to know that the weekend I was there was special Halloween family themed weekend but great nonetheless.

Wish they communicated the scheduled activities better. The schedule they posted near the office was from the previous week, and another posting near the goats was from 2 weeks prior.

Wonderful place with plenty of entertainment for the kids. Staff are super-friendly and helpful.

I like it but the shower water was not hot and the water pressure was so weak. and the picnic table was not clean (I think you don’t clean it). but else was good

The rock wall and bounce pad were what our boys were most excited about, yet they were unable to use them because they were closed due to "rain," which there wasn't any rain. It is like caltrans requiring you to put on snow chains on a sunny day. Tent sites were awkwardly close for $85/night. No privacy. Hay ride, pool, playground and train were fun.

It was pleasant. The facility is clean and has lots of ammenities. I did have stoned campers pitch their tent in my space when I came back from being gone during the day. They were clueless but that was them not the campground's fault. All in all a nice stay.

Very Nice all around! Restrooms and Showers are very nice and clean!!

The good: has pool, jacuzzi, peting zoo, toilett, shower were clean. Staff were friendly. The bad: one can hear the cars/trucks from the Highway nearby at night. Also, pool water is too cold, would have been great if a few decrees warmer. Otherwi

The restrooms were very clean and updated. The smell from the nearby dairy farm was almost unbearable, which I understand is out of your control. Pricing on tent only sites is very high.

The site was clean, though a little small. We were on the far end of the park, so far from everything, but was quiet. The only thing that bothers us, was the campers/RVs coming in at all hours of the night, and shining into our tent. Otherwise, it was great. We'll be back.

Great time and well maintained facilities. I wish there were more (and more desirable tent sites).

Upon ck in I wasnt notified about the showers near my campsite which were super low pressure and heat for 2 min. Then it smelled like a dog crapped by my tent so it was hard to sleep all night, could have been the petting zoo but not sure. Really not happy. Ive stayed at KOA's for years, just not like this. Great stuff for kids, just not me

Tent camping. KOA had everything I needed, very pleasant.

As always, we had a fantastic time. Your facilities are always clean & well maintained, with activities for all age groups to enjoy. The staff is very friendly, and do all they can to be helpful & ensure a pleasant experience for the campers!

The tent sites are too close together. Quiet time isn't enforced and was quite loud at the campsites due to music and loud talking. The showers closest to the tent sites only had warm water if only one person was showering at a time. The shower area was also small especially comparing it to the other bathrooms. The activities offered were the highlight of the trip.

Only suggestion would be to make the tent areas a little more flat , sleeping on a slope isnt the best. Other than that, great facility and a nice break from the city.

I really enjoyed the DJ Saturday afternoon. Was a fun vibe!

The campsite space is good and lots of fun activities for kids. We also like the space in the kitchen area but is not convenient for small people or short people because the sinks are too dip and very difficult to reach down the sink. The shower at the portable bathroom is too tight and the water pressure is very slow and no hot water.
