Our truck broke down and were greeted by friendly staff who allowed our Travel Trailer to be towed in and parked while we got our truck repaired (3 days, busy holiday travel time). It was a very stressful time for us and the kind of service and the site they put us in was much appreciated. We were stuck with no transportation and so got to really enjoy the park. There is definitely a lot to do here. We took a nice walk up to & around their fishing pond, visited their petting zoo, sat on the lounge chairs in the water park and relaxed to the peaceful sound of water falling down like a waterfall. We visited their old western village and pool. They offer a game room, fully stocked store, hot tubs, a great miniature golf course, multiple children's playgrounds, a dog playground, a basketball court, a volleyball court & horseshoes. They even offer a Zen garden & a Skunk Train depo. I rated 4 start for value only because I feel RV at parks have gotten almost as pricey as some nice motel resorts. And, if you do not have a KOA membership, then my site would have cost someone in the tune of $80. I gave a 4 star for cleanliness only because it would be nice if more gavel was on the roads to lay down the traffic dust that is constantly flowing & the lawns in the sites were half dead and not green. The amenities are fabulous though and sites are level. A great place for family gatherings. This KOA offers monthly events which I am looking forward to attending. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. I will be going back for sure. We camped at Willits KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This KOA is way over priced for what you get. $62 for a very short un-level pull through is ridiculous. Most sites are water/electric, only a few of the pull through are full hookups.The site had the utilities grouped in the forward half and the cable had a total of 9 grainy channels. Site surface is gravel and out of level front to rear. Satellite reception will be iffy due to the heavy tree cover at all but a couple of sites. This KOA is more of a poor value than most. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

What a great park for kids! There is a lot of fun things for them--petting zoo, amazing playground, splash pad, pool, fishing pond, and an outdoor old west area that looks like they show movies there. The park was really clean and easy to maneuver our 45 ft motorhome with tow. We stayed here one night and I would visit again. Note that many sites share a central area with neighbor.

This is a lovely little park with a nice pool area, decent general store, hiking area, mature trees and well-kept grounds. It's laid out kinda weird but everything is accessible so it works. The spaces are set very far apart and most look to be wide and/or long enough to accommodate a rig and a tow'd. Ours has a picnic table, fire ring and a small barbecue grill... all in the back of the space.

Customer service was fast and excellent. This is our first KOA experience and so far it's been very pleasant. The discount we got at the park for becoming KOA members actually paid for the membership itself, so I'll call that a win-win.

I will agree with previous comments that the sites aren't very level - so make sure you pack your chocks and blocks - but I'll disagree with some others about the noise. Inconsiderate neighbors just happen sometimes and they aren't necessarily a reflection on the overall quality of the park - it's been quiet as a mouse since we pulled in.

More on the site level issue: The sites are large-grade gravel (bigger rocks than usual) so if your rig is as big and heavy as mine you'll want to clear the space under your jack's foot pads of any larger stones... otherwise they'll slip-n-slide on you until they finally crush into the ground which can be a little nerve-racking. If you use those plastic pads under your jacks, I wouldn't count on being able to use them again; they're likely to get pretty chewed up.

I actually couldn't level up completely because our site is low in the back and to the right. My curb-side was up off the ground already (which is fine) but to level perfectly I would have needed to lift the rear off the ground as well, meaning that only my left-front tire could have been chocked, and in my opinion that's simply not enough braking support for this much rig. It wasn't so un-level that it was uncomfortable, but if you have a propane fridge it might be an issue. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Mendocino coast is an hour away to the west; Clearlake is about an hour or so to the east depending on which side you go to. Despite the drought, Clearlake was completely full and beautiful when we drove by on 04/20/2016. Lots of wine-country options in just about any direction, though some of the best might be an hour and a half drive, but it's beautiful this time of year so it's worth it.

Campground is well maintained; hooks ups were in good shape and had good water pressure and good Wi-Fi and cable. Sites are close together with shared hook ups and not real level. A bit tricky getting into your site, they have high curbs at most sites and we needed to be real carful not to hit them with our 5th wheel. This site was a bit short for our rig. We were only looking for a space for overnight so lots of amenities that we didn't use or need, but would be fun if we had grandkids with us. We camped at Willits KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a park for families with young children. Unfortunately, none of the children and most of the adults have no concept of campground etiquette. We were in a pull-through site and were subjected to a steady stream of people walking through our campsite. Some even cut between our car (which was parked next to the coach) and the motorhome. When I asked them not to, some of them got hostile. At one point we were afraid to leave the park for fear that a particular group of young people would vandalize our motorhome. We complained to the staff and the owner who made sure the group (who were leaving that day) actually left the park. They were apologetic, but could do nothing about all the people walking through our campsite. This is a great park for children. Lots to keep them busy. It is essentially a parking lot attached to an amusement park! If you are retired and just looking for a comfortable place to spend a couple of days, this park isn't for you! It also is NOT big rig friendly. The sites are all too short to leave your toad attached and the turns are pretty tight. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

My rate was 775/month and 875/month during the summer months. I stayed from mid-March to mid-June. The nightly rate is 60 dollars a night, during summer months. These are my opinions based on my stay here at the Willits KOA

Pros- This is a well-kept park. The owners and their crew are constantly working, from sunup to sundown, to keep this park in operation. It is clean, and manicured. Garbage pickup outside your camp site, daily. Park provides free WiFi, which actually works pretty well, and cable TV. There are many things geared towards children. This park is primarily family oriented. There are walking trails and a small "catch and release" pond. The store is pretty decent, and well stocked. Bathhouses are clean, and cleaned daily. Most all of the sites have water and electricity. Not all sites have sewer, but if you need a dump, the honey wagon can be arranged for a fee. There is a dump station for residents at the entrance. This park has several amenities, in addition to those already mentioned, to include a heated pool, heated hot tub, splash area for kids and a petting zoo. There is a security gate.

Cons-The cable TV needs to be upgraded...there are 11 channels and those fade in and out. Also, for those who have their mail forwarded to them, there needs to be a better system for providing mail to longer term residents. It is expensive to stay here. There are other parks nearby that are cheaper, just doesn't have the amenities.

Kudos to the ownerfor helping us with the mail situation. She is the one to see if you need something done.

I'd stay here again. We camped at Willits KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Short trips to the Redwood Forest, and to Ft. Bragg and Glass Beach. Also just a short ride down to San Francisco. The "Skunk Train" comes right by the park and picks up there. The KOA office sells tickets.

What a beautiful location. The park is great for families with miniature golf, an arcade, petting zoo, etc. Also great for adults with nice hiking trails and pool. The staff was friendly and very efficient keeping the park so pristine. I'll stay longer next time. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

We have never given a park a terrible rating before this one. We are staying for three plus weeks. This park is geared towards families with kids. There are lots of things for the kiddies to do. We have no problem with the park appearance and the amenities available to kids. With that said, we do have issues with the staff and more precisely, the rules here. We arrived early (10:30 am). We were greeted by a clerk with a snotty attitude. She said she would have to charge us $10 for checking in an hour early. We said we would come back, and then she said she would waive the fee. Then we were told we would have to be in a back in site without sewer hookups. The park is literally empty now. We understand they will be full over the Memorial Day weekend, but there are lots of sites available for the next week and a half. We would then be charged a $5 to dump our sewer every five days. But the topper was when our local friends came to visit for dinner and were charged a $20 "day use fee". When we explained that they were not going to use any of the facilities, and that we would like to be able to visit with our friends (which is why we are here), we were told there would be no deviance from the rules. They would be charged for entry on the property every time at $20 per visit. This is ridiculous. The snotty attitude got even worse when the "manager" was citing the rules and the fact that she was just doing her job. We will not return. We will not recommend this park to anyone. There are other parks in the area that are adequate without the snottiness and incredulous rules. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice KOA - mostly quiet (some CA 20 traffic noise), shaded pretty setting. Gravel access roads somewhat narrow in places. Gravel sites with some slope (our front tires were not quite off the ground). Could get noisy in season as the campground has a lot to attract children. Good base camp for the Mendocino coast (especially with length restrictions on CA 20 west of Willits). Big rig access is potentially problematic depending upon how full the campground gets. There is a rather tight S curve to access the first row of pullthrus (ok if you drop your toad first) and getting out of the campground requires selecting the best of several turn around options based upon where other vehicles are parked. Power ok, did not use the other utilities. Wifi decent signal strength and speed for a campground, but this was off-season and the campground was fairly empty. We will stay here again for an overnight or for exploration of the Mendocino coast. We camped at Willits KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.
