park too big and messy for me
Aug 25, 2013
This park is a great place to take the kids or grandkids. It is well managed, well staffed, clean, safe, and there are a variety of kid friendly activities. The staff, of which there are many, are all really friendly and helpful.

very helpful and I normally will not stay in koa because as a senior i do not need all amenities. just an extra cost. this time staied a week for the tours. koa needs a fee for just staying overnight with electric/water only or with dump. I own a motorhome and when going from place to place am only looking for the basics

We paid nearly $200/night in a lodge with no A/C, no bathroom sink, no washcloths, ancient old futon, internet impossible, no closet or dresser (at that price was a glofied tent) Way overpriced for quality - would never recommend.

Very convenient to the highway and SF without being too noisy. Could have used more shade, but a very nice campground.

Overall,our experience was very good.The park was well-managed,the facilities were clean,the staff was polite,and the spaces were reasonably sized. The one large downside to this was the entry/exit area,where unless supervised,became a big giant parking lot mess of confusion. Campers who didn't know where they were going,or had no idea of how to drive an RV became entangled with drivers who just

Great place for families and for seeing the North Bay area. Major problem internet connections, which were erratic and weak when they did exist. Tengointernet ought to be banned from parks!

We had a nice relaxing vacation. Our two 15yr.old grandsons had a great time.

Great time,great staff

the first night we stayed we were SOAKED with TWO sprinklers spraying directly onto our tent!!!! I talked with the front desk and they found us another site...thank goodness. waking up a family (with a 5 year old) at 3am to getting soaking wet is not a great experience :( also, i let two seperate staff members know that the shower drain was clogged and when we left 5 days later it was still cloged

My 6 1/2 year old twins LOVED this place, didn't want to leave! Great pool! We especially loved petting the goats, sheep & chickens. The banana bikes were fun to rent, plus we brought our own bikes to ride around. Thanks for having so many kids activities, they said this was more fun than going to Legoland & Disneyland. We will be back again soon!

We made a reservation and were still placed in an overfill campsite. It was a spot meant for an RV so there was hardly any room for our tent. We were literally in between a light pole and the picnic bench. Also being right next to the bathrooms in our tent wasn't a pleasant experience. The only thing between our tent and the bathrooms was our car.

nice people and beatifull surrounding only 40 min. from SF but a little expensive in comparisson to a hotel

Trash in campsites, our site fire pit was full of trash. Price of $59 most expensive in 2 month trip throughout the west. You can only play convenience to SF and Napa card to get the price you demand so long. Wonder why in the height of tourist season, why we didn't need a reservation to get a 42' motorhome in your park?????

We love the KOA in Petaluma and so do our kids! Fabulous stay! Thank you

Great campground with lots of little touches and details.

Well organized and professionally managed. Clean restrooms and showers. A very family-oriented place BUT you should have an "adults only" time at the pool (perhaps 5:00-6:00 p.m. or later) for those not traveling with kids but who would like a swim. It really is a gong show over there.Most of the upper campsites have the sewage outflow caps positioned uphill from the RV site. This should be fixed.

You can stay here and never leave and have a great time if you bring children. In the summer it's busy with kids (in the pool, on their bikes, etc.) They have tons for kids to do. For those of us without kids, the place is well staffed, restrooms are clean and have free showers. The coffee cart in the morning, breakfast for $3, and friendly people are great.

We made reservation 3 months prior & told we had a site then the day we checked in it was changed without telling us even though all our paperwork given to us the expected site was written on there. Senior staff were rude to members of our party who showed up first and yet we paid in cash and almost $3000 for almost 50 people. The site we reserved was closer to restroom, pool and parking lot.

We stayed in the cabins, they were clean and furnished nicely. We really enjoyed our stay.

Bathrooms were a little untidy but understandable with the amount of people on the grounds. Took the tour from the campground and would highly recommend. John ( the tour guy) was amazing and truly knowledgeable. Would love to come back and take the trip again and stay longer. Thanks for a good time.

One thing I did not care for was the site was assigned to us the day we arrived. We were really disappointed - it was totally bare with no trees to provide any shade. The next day we went to speak with someone at the front desk to see if we could move. They did let us move to a much better site. I feel like they nickel & dime you for everything even though you already paid a lot to stay there.

This was the third time visiting your camp in recent years. This time weather was not supportive, but we made most of it. Another small thing was that the site that we occupied was not leveled at all and we found ourselves every morning on the bottom of the tent. First night was funny, but next time I will make sure I do not get this site. Very clean facilites and great swimming pool

We enjoyed everything. Wish we would've had the chance to cruise around on the banana bikes. The ice cream social was yummy and the poolside movie was a nice event to get us away from the fireside for a little while. Our tent site 91 was right up against the fence of the cow and donkey pasture which we really enjoyed although it smelled a little bit :)
Aug 20, 2013
site was unpleasant because it was dirt, not gravel, grass sparse with plenty of weeds and debris on ground from previous campers; less than we have enjoyed in the past

Great spot at the end of row C. Loved the swing and wooden chair for 2 with fire pit. Great pine trees and what a fun place for families with children. So many activities for them. A wonderful place. We will stay there again.

Lots to do for the family. Bathrooms were clean, the shower heads were terrible though. The pool was reaaly great, and movie night by the pool was fun :-). I wished there was a bit more privacy between sites, but overall we really enjoyed our stay and it was only 40 minutes to 6 Flags and 5 to the Lagunitas brewery :-)

Nice campground. Very crowded in weekends. Stayed at a site near pool. Woke up 3 times because of a loud bell ringing(?!)

Not Big Rig friendly. Could not open awnings, trees in the way. No room to park tow. Pine sap all over rig. No escort to site.
