I like this campground . . it is in a pretty setting and relaxing. I have the feeling that if it was full up it wouldn't be nearly as relaxing as some of the sites in the back where we were are pretty close together. We enjoy walking over to the Benbow Inn (same owners) for lunch or dinner. I don't play golf, but their course was quite busy. Older, dated restrooms and no hot water one morning. We camped at Benbow KOA (formerly Benbow RV Park) in a Motorhome.

A clean well run, older park. Definitely family friendly. WiFi worked great. Some facilities are odd - the sewer hookup requires a non-standard fitting that is available "for sale" - negative points assigned. We camped at Benbow KOA (formerly Benbow RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Very old park, clean, but very dated. Focus is on the little 9 hole par 3, much more than RV park. Overpriced. Paved streets and sites, but old. Pull throughs are short. They did give us 2 sites so we could park our truck next door. Hot tub was clean, but the jets didn't work. No one was interested in fixing that problem. May be the nicest park in the neighborhood, but don't get real excited if you stay here. We stayed here 2 nights. Advertised 50 amps, but I think they have 5 or 6 sites in the back of the park with 50 amp. You can tell this WAS a nice park in it's day. OK for overnight stay. Laundry dated too. Looks good at first sight, but many machines are not working. Out of order signs were stained from age! $2.00 wash and dry. We camped at Benbow KOA (formerly Benbow RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice surroundings. Close to 101, so a lot of road noise. Sites are ancient, but paved and clean. Very tight for big-rigs! Sewer connections are old and require a 3" connection, an adapter I don't carry in my rig. So I had to go into the office and buy one for no less than $15 bucks! They also dinged us a $2 per pet fee which I feel is ridiculous. So with the pet fee, the overpriced initial rate of $48 per night, and the sewer adapter I'll never use again it costs us $67 for one night in the middle of no where!

Way overpriced. I was here on April 30 and paid $33. Price on May 1st is $47. I would have stayed longer but would not pay that for a 'basic' pad. Seems the Benlow Inn now manages the place. The owner plans to upgrade the park but at the expense of current RVers. He should put up the money then charge the RVers after the upgrades are completed. I have stayed here on a number of other occasions. I will not stay here again. We camped at Benbow KOA (formerly Benbow RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Beautiful spot right on a golf course and a river. Close to the freeway but quiet. Not many people in November. Very clean campsites. Leaves were picked up nearly every day. We camped at Benbow KOA (formerly Benbow RV Park) in a Motorhome.

This rv resort is in a beautiful area. The golf course that the rv resort owns is fun, challenging and pretty cheap to play. The campground needs a little TLC but overall was clean. Your enjoyment will have alot to do with your specific site. Some are more private than others. Some sites have the golf course behind them and some have the river behind them. Those offer more privacy. The pool and sauna were clean. Staff was helpful. Garberville is two miles down the road. Be ready for deep pockets at the gas pumps there.

Great place for family golfers! Cheap great quality, challenging course. Plenty to do here with biking, golf, swimming, hot tubs, and the little town of Garberville two miles away (great burger joint). Most sites have shade. Some with small trees. Grounds pretty well maintanied. They offer alot of evening activities for the kids. This is the place to go for a father and son to "bond" with the golfing and camping.

This park is in a little valley on the Eel River. It is surrounded by mountains and large trees, but the park only has small trimmed trees that pose no problem for an RV. The park is very well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites are 30 ft. wide and level, but the paved area between the utility posts and the patio was barely wide enough to get the slides out. The streets were paved and narrow, making it a challenge to get into a site, but we managed to get in with our 39' motorhome. This park is not really big rig friendly, but big rigs do manage to get into sites. The park is very overpriced. They did have free WiFi that worked great. Cell phones did not get a good signal. We camped at Benbow KOA (formerly Benbow RV Park) in a Motorhome.
