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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
