A little weird for snow birding seniors. After being given wristbands that we were told we must wear (like little kids). We went to our dusty site to watch Monday night football (without our wristbands. Oops! They advertise cable, but only 10 local channels. And the Wi-Fi dropped constantly. Overall, we felt this place is for young'ns. But for us, it felt as fake as their western building fronts. We would not overnight here again. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate is $60/night discounted by buying annual KOA membership. Nice pool, not too crowded as kiddie water play area is separate. Park is set up for families and kids, we knew that so readily accepted it. We were first signed up for space A-1 which was right across from kiddie water park area. We ran back to office to ask for A-6 which was only other opening. Staff in office helpful, it was busy and chaotic but they handled the traffic flow well. Tons of staff throughout park helping, overseeing, doing trash etc. Each site had a reasonable amount of space in-between. Hook ups (water/electric) set up that you are back to back with your neighbor on one side, so a bit more private feeling and our other neighbor elected to pull in with his back to us so he could utilize the corner end unit better for his family. So good for us. The every other direction of the sites was confusing at first. Overall easy in and out of site and park. Site was level. Dump station for guest at exit of campground. For families, movies and events occur on weekends. The weekend we stayed was Xmas in July for the kids. Had to buy Friday and Saturday night to get a place to stay Friday night. We didn’t plan so well, so mea culpa. Our site was water/electric only. We viewed the restrooms at dinner time and they were tired, damp from showers and a bit musty for a day’s worth of use. We elected to use our own trailer for all services since it was a one-night stay. We forfeited site after the one night as this was part of larger travel trip. We would likely not return as we are not target customer for this (and most) KOAs. We camped at Willits KOA in a Travel Trailer.

There are many good things about this park. Mainly the amenities for children. They have a pool, water park, petting zoo, mini golf, catch and release fish pond, pet area, ice cream socials and more. On the downside, the park is extremely dusty and dirty. When checking in the staff was not very friendly. Yes, they were busy, but customer service should not be forsaken. We were given two trash bags and I.D. bands and our space number and sent out the door. The person who checked us in did not go over any information. Our site was on dirt/gravel and was not level. In fact the sewer hookup went uphill, not down, so we had to call to get dumped. We held a family camping reunion here. We would not stay here again. Too expensive and too many rules which we found out the hard way. Children under 18 even have to have an adult with them at all times.e camped in a 5th wheel. We camped at Willits KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here for one night to hookup and replenish our electric and water between bouts of dry camping. It was our first time in a KOA. I see why people with families would want to camp here. There was tons of stuff for kids to do, including a pool, "sprayground," and even a petting zoo. They show a movie at night. we had a back-in site next to the fence. It was level, and the hook-ups worked fine. We were concerned that there might not be enough showers (three) for such a large park, and though they were busy we were able to get ours without incident. The bathrooms are clean and modern. We didn't use all the services so the price was high for us, but there are not a lot of options in this area. Because of all the kids, it was kind of noisy during the day but it quieted down nicely at night. Under the same circumstances, we would camp here again. We camped at Willits KOA in a Truck Camper.

This was our first time at the Willits KOA. We selected it because of the amenities for children. All sites and interior roads are gravel and dirt. The place is very dusty. We give this park high marks for the amenities including the children's water park (spray ground), pool, wading pool, petting zoo, climbing zone, miniature golf, and ice cream social. However, we were very disappointed with the customer service. The front desk staff were rude and seemed annoyed with all the guests and did not differentiate between problem guests and high quality guests. The owners have an extensive list of rules and signs posted everywhere. We were also disappointed to see that the owners allow day use guests to over-run the pool area and other amenities, essentially "crowding out" the overnight guests. We generally have good experiences at KOAs but we will not be returning to this location. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night on our way to Azalea Glen campground in Trinidad. Our "pull through" was a "pull in, back out" because people and vehicles were so packed in there was no room to pull through. Very noisy until very late. Won't stay here again. We camped at Willits KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Price is for a full-hookup site. Gravel and dirt, level, picnic table, fire pit, and shade. WiFi and 11-channel cable TV, both worked fine. Lots of things for the kids to do. Fish pond, catch and release. 1/2-mile trail is up the hill then down the hill, not to safe. Quiet at night. We camped at Willits KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

While the park has the most activities I've ever seen, especially for children, the basic sites are way below average. Certainly for parks in this price range. Our site was gravel with no concrete pad and the gravel was not thick enough to cover all the dirt, so it was quite dusty. The park was adding sites during our stay and the dust from construction was bad. Apparently they never heard of water trucks. Will not return. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

Our check in experience at this park was great; fast friendly service. Lots of good advice and a lot of very good information. They did such a good sell on KOA that we bought a membership. It's not the first KOA that we have stayed at but a staff member did an amazing job of explaining what it was all about and how we could use it. Anyway, the park was very very clean, well organized, and very family oriented. WiFi worked, cable TV was great. We would certainly stay here again. Easy access to highway. Love all the animals. Thanks again. We camped at Willits KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in a premium site with a private hot tub, picnic table with nice lounge chairs, and its own grill on a cement pad. Sites are gravel and somewhat uneven but still very nice. Lots of things for the kids, but at this time of year the place was empty. Rabbits wandering around everywhere. The hostess was very helpful and informative. They give you garbage and recycling bags. The real downside is no sewer hookups at the premium sites. They bring a "honey wagon" around if you need to dump. Not good when you pay so much. We camped at Willits KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

In high season appears to be lots to do without leaving the campground. Level site. Services were good including cable and Wi-Fi. Highway 20 runs by the campground, but traffic not a real issue. Railway line is only used during daytime by a tour train that runs to the coast and picks up at the campground. Only issue we had was with the somewhat lazy site maintenance personnel who raked up the fallen leaves into small piles in the RV sites and burned rather than pick them up and at least burn them in the large firepits. We had 5-burn spots with lots of ashes to walk over or around. Would stay again if in area. We camped at Willits KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Fairly well maintained campground. Roads and site are gravel, so very dusty. Site was barely adequate for our 40 foot motor home, narrow roads, tight turns, no room to park our towed and side to side hookups. A few shade trees, a little patch of grass here and there. Bathrooms were clean and there was a security gate 24/7. WiFi  and cell were patchy. Food stores, restaurants and sightseeing are close by. This is a typical KOA and very over priced.  We would only stay here again if absolutely desperate. Stay here if you want to park in the middle of a kids playground.  We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

We were in a 33 foot 5th wheel and requested a site that would have room for a tent. We were given a back in site that fulfilled our needs. Site was gravel and took two, 1 inch boards to level side to side. There was no sewer at our site but a honey wagon was available for a $5.00 cost. Great camp ground for kids. Good gravel roads and drainage was good after two days of pouring rain. Nice KOA. Only complaint is there was room to park two vehicles in our site and still be off the road, but the extra car had to park in over flow parking. We camped at Willits KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The owners have made a huge investment in this campground for the children. Two pools and lots of other activities. We just fit in our site with 45' after unhooking tow. A parking space was provided for it. Site was level gravel and dirt. They do have some premium sites with a deck, fire ring and hot tub. In the back of the campground, there is a rather open area with backin sites that are huge, but close to the road. Wi-Fi was adequate. It's close to town for restaurants or shopping. One unusual rule is that colored wristbands, similar to the kind you wear when you're a patient in the hospital, are required so they know if you registered or not. Willets is undergoing major road construction for the next 8 years, so traffic through town is slo.o.o.w. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

A fine place to stop for a night or two, with lots of distractions for the kids. But there are numerous rules and unexpected fees. Hookups worked well, but the spaces are a little small. I had a site that was supposed to fit up to a 45' RV, but my 38' motorhome was sticking out into the aisle. Phones service in the area is great, and the weather stays cool, thanks to the proximity to the ocean. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.
