Apology sheet at checkin for condition but working on it. Wouldn't stay a second time. No cut on rate with apology. I haven't had much luck with KOA's but this website painted a pretty good picture. Still a KOA.

We had an outstanding time at the Benbow KOA. Lots of great touches and amenities for everyone in the family including the dog. From free wifi, to ac in the cabins, to a dog washing station. First clss all the way. I highly recommend this place to anyone traveling in this area.

We stopped (one night only) that was enough...... The place was way overpriced, wifi didn't link up, spot we were assigned was like a large puddle, the golf course was WAY over priced and overrated , would be better suited for cattle grazing !! Was very happy to leave , never to return.

We've been RVing at Benbow RV Park for many years but this is our first visit since it became a KOA facility. They have added quite a few permanent cabins along the outside perimeter of the park, added new playground equipment, a dog wash and a very small dog park, there also seems to be more camping spaces now. All... More

We stayed at the Benbow KOA for 1 night and found it to be very clean and cozy. The spaces are all paved with a nice picnic table. The pool was just so nice. There is a water play area for the kiddos and a great hot tub. Although this is not a super fancy resort, we were treated exceptionally... More

We found this place when we were driving in our class B RV and on our way to the avenue of the giants, It's only 6 miles away from the south edge. This place would clearly not be on the map if it were not for Avenue of the Giants but that being said they are a KOA and their... More

Family stay on the way through the Redwoods. Nice park with golf course, pool and dog park. Paved driveways that the kids used for bicycling around the park. Nice playground centrally located. Restrooms with nice showers located at front and middle of the park. The river is running by the park and has a nice little swimming hole. Would recommend... More

While KOA is not consistently good, this one was very nice. We just stayed one night, but it was clean, quiet and well managed. Price was fair. The Benbow Inn is a short walk and a very nice place to have dinner. Expect a big bill...but very pleasant. The RV park had clean bathrooms and showers. Nice residents....good stop.

We were looking for a place to stop on our way home from a month long trip.
