Nice location for visiting wine country. Lots of flys this time of year making it difficult to sit outside.

Good site, good facilities although a little noisy at night, weekend, lots of kids there but surprised parents let them just run around late at night I think campsites in general, when busy should endeavour to keep families together in one area

We had a great stay. I did laundry for the first time there and had to run a load three times in a dryer and they were still damp - that gets expensive.

The staff was especially nice...we also took the Tour. Thought it was better than average...the guide was great. The park is clean and seems to be amply equipped...didn't really use anything, but it was all there.

I stayed in a cabin in May and it was much nicer than in August. I was told the cabin was ready but when I got there the lady said it would be at least 20 to 30 more minutes. She had left the door open so there were at least 25 flies in the cabin that made it very uncomfortable. All together I think I killed over 30 flies! Also, the drain in the bathroom had a very bad smell.

Your rules state no washing of RV's, yet we witnessed several being washed. 1/2 mill units need to obey same rules as 100K's. Also saw pets in playground and kids in k-9 park without a pet or parent? If U R going to have rules then enforce them.

A wonderful Kamground for RVers and Tent folk. A well kept tent area with nearby restrooms and showers, even a Kamp Kitchen if you want to make it easy on yourself. Grounds are well kept and staff are super friendly and helpful. Store goods a bit pricey but you pay for convenience. Lotsnof Kamp activities in the high season. Did I mention the huge pool and spa?

This KOA was loaded with things to do if you have children. For us, it was a great location to visit the wine country. Everything was nice and clean. During the weekend, the large park was close to full. The sites were active until around 10 PM. Then everything went quite. The staff were plentiful and available. Only concern was a manure smell when the wind was in the wrong direction.

We have stayed at many KOA locations, we will NOT return to this one. Smells like raw sewage and there are flies everywhere. Overly crowded and to make matters worse the staff is extremely rude. At check in I was scolded for arriving too early instead of being greeted. They were militaristic about the jumpy pillow. To the point where my kids cried. We paid a lot of money to be treated so poorly.

Reserved a 30 amp back in when we arrived they had us in a 50amp pull thru with no privacy. Was charged for the 50 amp pull thru even though it was not what I reserved. People walking thru our site continually right beside our RV. Cars parked in the road making it difficult to get the RV thru the park. If you got to reserve a site We will return to the area but not to this park.

Our cubscout den (8 adults + 8 kids) went there for an outing. We enjoyed our stay and the facilities were great. The swimming pool was a bit crowded for our activities but worked out. The location is easy to find because of its proximity to freeway but we could also hear freeway noise during the night.

We were charged $10.00 for additional campers, we thought perhaps 2 grand kids age 8 and 5 might visit, but got sick and did not come. It was myself(54 yrs) my husband and 3 boys ages 7, 3 and 14 months. I thought kids under 4 are free? Otherwise great time ! Thanks

KOA is a great place for kids. I'd be more likely to return more often if there were more flexible booking options. A minimum 2 night stay is difficult to fit into an already busy family schedule.

This camping year we have been to 14 different KOA's. By far this is the best of them all. From the reception at check in to the up keep of the park, everything was excellent. We arrived before noon and they checked us in early. Very nice. By all means take the city tour. John "The Tour Guy" was a 10+ One of the best tours we have ever been on. Fantastic KOA!

one of the coolest KAOs we`ve been to, but also the most expensive and loudest one. We paid 47$ for a tent site with a KOA value card, but the pool and hot tub are huge and there are a lot of fun activities for families. For two students like us, it wasn`t the best deal, but the atmosphere was great!

Online, we reserved space with electric/water. What we got was a site with water only. When I attempted to rectify the error, I was treated very rudely & the situation was not resolved. In addition, it is filthy, the grounds full of fleas, and it stinks. DO NOT go to this KOA! A Motel 6 stay is better than this place or even a Walmart parking lot!

Nice campground, friendly staff, great San Francisco tour provided through the campground!

Quiet and clean. Perfect for us 70 year olds. Gravel sites 232-234 need to be leveled. 234 is 4inches out of level side to side. After leveling with boards we needed a step ladder to climb into our entry door.

We packed the KOA with our Vintage Trailers this past weekend & as a courtesy to all of those returning that have come every year for the last 3 years, the front desk should ask at check in if they want to reserve the same site for the next year before the sites are open up for reservations. They need to clarify also that they are charging an extra $10 ??? guarantee fee to not be moved?!

This KOA has the most hospitable staff I have ever encountered while visiting a managed campground. All of the facilities were extremely well-maintained. A wonderful environment for visitors with young children. I have chosen to book reservations at this KOA every time I have visited the San Francisco area. In summary, just a beautiful campground.

This KOA was the best we've visited so far. The playground was huge and fun, petting area was neat, and the jumping pillow was a huge draw and super fun. We also enjoyed the large pool and hot tub. And the bathroom! The campground bathroom was like something out of Vegas. It was the nicest public shower house I've ever experienced, and I've been to many! It was glittery and glamorous and clean!
