Campground Reviews

Jul 02, 2015
We enjoyed this KOA very much. However, on one of our stays we were in a pull through site next to the laundry room. One night four people did their laundry at around 12 midnight and two people did their laundry beginning at 5 am. Both groups were very loud. I suggest the laundry room be closed during quiet hours.

Very accommodating campground. Good location. Lots of activities for kids. Helpful staff. Well maintained facility.

Awesome park! Would stay again. Loved all of the activities they offered for kids. Would recommend they not charge for everything tho since we pay for kids to stay in our reservation.

We always enjoy our stay and the staff are very accomodating! Our only dislike is the over-diligence with parking rules. When we have a family member stop by to join us for dinner or pick up a child,their are very strict parking pass restrictions - it makes us and our family member feel like we're being treated as though we would take advantage. No other KOA that we've stayed at does that.

Site was well-maintained but the showers were nearly impossible to use. No hooks or benches in the women's shower stalls for your things so you were reaching blindly over the door or stepping out in just a towel in a crowded bathroom.

Very convenient! Kids were excited when they saw amenities. Heated pool and jacuzzi were great! Trash cans throughout park made cleanup easy. Definitely could have used more than two toilets/showers in the 200's section. I waited until 1 am to use the shower/restroom and there were still people waiting to get in to the two restrooms.

kind of an odd place not really a campground more like a white trash resort

This camp has something for everyone. We kept wishing our grandkids were with us to enjoy all the fun activities offered, from the pool to the rock climbing wall to the jumping pillow. Wish it was a little closer to town though, as we didn't have a car and had to ride our bikes 5 miles each way to the neatest store. Will definitely return with family and a vehicle!

Picked Father's day weekend :( Should've had someone walking around hourly. Got up @3am & a 2ft tall fire was unattended.

stay was great, really enjoyed by campsite 231, one issue was there were a few large dogs without leashes running around in the area.

The cabin with the loft was great: spacious enough for 6, clean, and functional. The kids enjoyed the night time movies and other activities. Would like there to be recycling in the room or closer to the cabins at least.

The rules changed on the Koa value card were not explained to me even though I told the reservation personal that I wasn't going to purchase the card until I got to the Koa site. That cost me about $90.

the manning family had a ball. everything was so nice and the people made us all feel like we had another outside family. Oh the events for the kids were great. Oh i just want to say that the pool DJ is GREAT!!! He kept it fun!! he is a keeper :-). SEE YOU GUYS NEXT YEAR!!! :-) ISABEL

SF tour was great, therefore the 2 star recommendation. Tent camping sites are bad in comparison to other KOAs. Too few bathrooms/showers at tent campsites; limited cleaning on week days; most of all: the campground allows tent check in at 2.45am. Imagine somebody hammering their tent into the ground right next to you at that time of night. KOA greedy?

Great place to stay and visit San Fransico and the wine county!!! The staff was superior in helping us get our big rig into the right place! John the tour guy was fabulous, we highly recommend taking the tour of SF with him, he was A++++!

Unfortunately the septic venting system exhausts the methane gas directly into the site locations via tubes that are maybe 8 feet tall. The fumes can permeate the site areas with a sewer smell.

Pretty meager tent sites. Super loud campground at night with screeching peacocks and an unidentified something else that sounded like helicopters flying overhead. The noise was continual going off and on making sleep impossible. It was so loud when the noise started going that it drowned out the hooting of owls. Definitely bring earplugs!

Clean campground with all the amenities. Great place to stay!

My family loves KOA in Petaluma!! There is so much to do - swimming, the large jump pillow, the petting farm, movie night by the pool, ice cream social, banana bikes..We'll be back soon!
Jun 30, 2015
This place is going good for families, especially with small kids. We enjoyed our stay.
Jun 30, 2015
Great campground friendly and safe. Close to many attractions and fun for everyone. We enjoyed staying in one of the cabins. Would definitely stay here again!

I would recommend. There is a pasture next door so you can smell manure at first. But after 15 minutes, our noses adjusted. Plus, there are donkeys and they are cute. My 8yr old loved this camp. There is a huge pool, movies at night, a gold mining area, petting zoo and a giant bouncy pillow. Tent area has a gazebo group kitchen with sinks, burners & outlets. Great stay!

Great facility

I can't wait to bring my grandkids back to join in all the fun things you have for the little ones. Loved our cabin stay. Thanks

We had a fantastic time. Thanks

We're told different things about day use, and prices depending on who we were talking to. Should get all your people together, with rouls.

Relaxing with friends and family.

Very nice campground. Most of the employees are really friendly. Great for families. Kids seem to have top priority there. Lots of very strict rules for the adults however.....
Jun 29, 2015
Absolutely great! Very clean and have alot for the kids to do.
Jun 29, 2015
Very clean and lots of activities. Staff was great. Only down side was the sewer drain was on the high side of the campsite.

Great campsite- lots of amenities and activities and very clean. The only thing is that the lots could have been a little further from eachother - it gets pretty crowdy
Jun 29, 2015
This is the best KOA among 20+ KOAs that I have visited. Kids love to feed animals in the farm. All facility are clean
Jun 29, 2015
The staff were very helpful and professional. The campground was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed staying with you.

This was a wonderful campground for families. Wish we would have come here when our kids were younger. Did thoroughly enjoy the K9 Corral for our lab. We like a quieter, more outdoorsy campground and that is the only reason I am giving it a 4 star as it was too crowded for our liking. HOWEVER, the bathrooms were clean, the staff was SUPER, the pool was clean and the store was stocked ok. Thank you
Jun 29, 2015
Neighbors were a bit noisy for my taste, But the campground was nice and the staff was excellent.

The campground has a lot to offer especially if you have children. It has more of a "campground" feel to it with dirt/gravel spots, large redwood trees and a fire pit right outside your door. The sites in the "D" area which are the premium sites are not level and take some work to get your rig level. If you like the idea of camping more than "glamping" this is the place for you.
Jun 29, 2015
Very easy check-in. The bathrooms are pretty small & only have 2 shower stalls but they were actually clean.
Jun 29, 2015
Me gusto mucho y se guro lo voy a recomendar

What a hidden gem. We had our 4 grandchildren with us ages 17 to 3 and they all had such a great time. What a great job everyone does to make this the place to stay. We will definitely be back. I lost my purse but didn't know where, 3 days later after we had already left I was contacted that my purse had been found and all money credit cards etc were intact. Unbelievable...thank you.

Everything was great. the only issue my family had was the sun and heat directly hitting our lodge and us not being able to enjoy the outside of the lodge.
Jun 28, 2015
Prices were a little on the HIGH side especially when you charge extra for CHILDREN.
Jun 28, 2015
This was the best KOA we ever stayed at. Lots of activities for the kids, we have teens so even they were entertained the entire time. The pool is great and quite large. I saw workers patroling even at 2 am when i had to get up to go to the bathroom. The only problem we had was on out last night.It was NASCAR weekend and out neighbor came in at 2am screaming and peeing in his yard.
Jun 28, 2015
Kids had fun, will definitely come back.
