Campground Reviews

We had a great time at the KOA. The amenities are great for kids but the camping situation was horrible especially considering the price. Our site didn't even have a fire pit just a field of grass with a picnic bench.

We love KOA, but the bathrooms were shockingly filthy and there was no adults only area (pool, jacuzi, anything) unlike other places we've stayed. It was jammed everywhere with running, screaming kids. And nowhere to walk the dog but way over on the other side of the park. If you like loud, crowded and dirty, this place is for you.

Very nice campground with lots and lots of people. Some dogs unleashed and allowed to wander, but I doubt the owners were caught out. Nice cabins, but looks like 2 or 3 families gathered in side-by-sides and contributed to a rather large traffic jam at times. I'm sure all the kids loved this place as there is plenty for them to do. Management was very very good.

Great KOA. So much to see and do without leaving KOA. Within short distance of SF so great tours available. Also in the midst of wine country.

This was one well oiled machine of a KOA!!! I've been to many northern ca KOA's and this was definitely one of the better ones. From the streamlined check-in, to the traffic directors, to the massive employee presence that was always there to help! However- the bathrooms REALLY need help in both updating and expansion. Worst bathrooms of any KOA I've been to!

Please notify guests that site 295 is exposed to really bright light at nightime. It was a big incovenience to have a tent lit up like it was daytime at night

The campsite was practically sitting on top of the other campsites. There is hardly room for your car, tent and fire. There is not very much to do unless you are a child or have children. Extremely disappointed that I spent $40+ a night to practically camp in my backyard (on grass).The teens playing volleyball constantly walked through our site and hit my car with the ball several times.

We had a great KOA stay overall, but the lack of instruction/guide for riding the Banana Bikes worries me. When building up speed going downhill, the seats can swivel back & forth so much so as to cause a tumble. I saw 3 kids totally flip the bikes...

It was fun, but almost to big. My kids loved it and were mad that we left. Families were pretty respectful about the quiet times. My reason for a 4 star is that our actual camp site kind of sucked. It was a hill and the only flat place for a tent was our parking area. The spot next to us was huge with a big tree and lots of space.

The lady who checked us in was the most delightful and friendly person! She told us about local things that made all the difference in our trip. We enjoyed SF like never before!

Had a great stay at this KOA. Staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a busy place but they do a great job to keep it clean and lots to do for the kids.

Very accomodating on rebooking, but PLEASE do not let campers leave their dogs tied up whining and barking while the owners leave for the pool or even the campsite.

The camp site was very nice. For first time Koa campers we were very pleased. We only had a couple of problems. Our TV wouldn't work which the kids were kind of bummed about. The Wi-fi would never connect in our cabin. The pool was great an the people that worked there were all very friendly. The bathrooms were very clean and it was wonderful washers and dryers on site.

Our stay was at the beginning of the week so it wasn't too busy. We enjoyed our first time at a KOA in a log cabin thanks to efficient and low key staff. Didn't get to ride the banana bikes a second time because it wasn't open until 1:00 pm...probably due to heavy check out activities at front desk and shifting of resources...something to look forward to next time.

My children had an amazing time at this KOA. There was so much to do! I chose KOA for safety reasons It was the perfect place for Mom and two kids to camp out in tent for a night. The only thing I would change for next time is the tent site (which was near the playground) that has less RV/car traffic) to a quieter spot.

This place is great for kids but not so great for seniors without kids. Your bathrooms are far inferior to other KOA's we've visited. You need some kind of mats in them. I did not enjoy wading through wet floors to use the toilets. They should be air conditioned as 1 of them was very hot. They need to be cleaned more often during your busy season. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

We love staying in the lodges at KOA- there were a couple maintenance and cleanliness issues when we first arrived, but the staff was friendly and prompt in setting them right. We've already reserved again for next year with our group! Thanks

Everything is so great. Friendly, helpful people, great ambiance , beautiful cabin. A little nitpick: it would be nice to have a little bedside lamp so one can read without disturbing the other with the overhead light on.

Have stayed here back in the early 90's, great then, and twice in the last two years, great as well. Friendly staff, easy in & out, clean, trees everywhere. Will stay again when in the the north state region.
