friendly, without any complications

Great family fun and very clean!! Kids had a ball!!

We stay here every year and love it!! The only suggestion I have is regarding the showers near rows A and B. Although immaculately clean, there is NO WHERE to put your clothes etc while you shower. A bench or something would be so helpful. I've walked in on other women scurrying wet and naked from the sinks to the shower. Also, the shower heads are way too high. Other than this, we LOVE IT!!

We really enjoyed our stay and found the park very nice. We took the tour to San Francisco and although we found it a bit long that day we were glad that we had taken the tour and found Justin very helpful and informative.

Clean, safe, friendly, and well-maintained. Nice promo discount PLUS KOA card 10%. Only drawback: "Sonoma aroma" and flies from dairy cows.

Facilities ok. Nice pool. Good place to stay to see San Francisco. Had rowdy neighbor driving in and out all night playing loud music honking horn, yelling. No camp security.

The staff there are extremely helpful! Not only with advice on things to do and see, but when we had a mishap with our awning they secured all and we were quickly on our way!!

This place was made for families! I have never witnessed so many activities at a camp anywhere. But it needs a little care. Signs were missing to guide us to our campsite, making it difficult, especially in the dark. Many sites needed a little leveling, and many needed quite a bit. The staff was friendly. The smell of manure in the evening was a bit powerful. The bathrooms were spotless.

Really liked this campground, wished we had stayed another night. Pool looked nice but did not get to use it. Lots of things in the area to see and do. Only negative is sights could have been more level.

SF N/Petaluma KOA is a beautiful campground. The staff was welcoming and helpful and the cabin was clean and comfortable. Thank you!

It's a good place to stay and visit San Francisco. Nice pool and hot-tub.
Oct 01, 2014
Wonderful amenities and great location for wine tasting and beautiful Petaluma. We had a great end spot with log swing. Ask for end spot :-). Would definitely stay here again.

Love this KOA. They have it all!

office personnel not very helpful in directing us to our site. No signage that directs you out of the park. Activities center playing music very loud. No notification that music was going to be played next to our site.

Good times!

Friendly, clean, expensive. Ideal for family holidays with lots for kiddies to do.
Sep 30, 2014
Kids everywhere! Lots of things for kids to do-playground, climbing wall, tractor ride, pool, petting zoo. Great place for kids to meet new friends. Kids on bicycles everywh We will return & we only live 45 mins. away. Two things that I found a bit disappointing: Kamping Kabins had cable TV & no mini heater (some campgrounds do have a heaters) and the community kitchen did not have a microwave.

Campground and facilities clean. Staff great. Drawback for us was noise from other campers. We are full time RVers and in our late 50s staying in an extremely family-friendly park. Had to run the gauntlet of bicycles, scooters and tricycles. Noisey neighbors after11pm. But for us, it was the only place to stay in the area.

Excellent as always!!! Love this KOA!

arrived at this KOA at the front desk. Lady at the desk advised no more space available. with the help of this young man that was directing the traffic on this Friday . He found us a space. My wife and I want to thank this man. Thanks "Woody" You made our day after a long day of driving.

Awesome deluxe cabin, friendly capable staff - amazing!

The site they provided us (216) was right next to the bathroom / shower facility and garbage bins. That shouldn't have been that big of a problem, but people would walk right through our site to get there. When talking to the staff, including the manager, it was a dismissive attitude as they were too busy with an annual group (vintage RV) coming the next weekend. Not sure we will be back

We stayed in a cabin it was new, clean and all the conveniencies.The heater/furnace didn't work just starting to get a little chilly at night and early AM.With no soap bars and just liquid bath gel/soap a wash cloth would be helpful.
Sep 29, 2014
Way too expensive and it was like camping in a condo camp ground, very cramped.
Sep 29, 2014
This is a large facility and many things to do for families with children. We didn't have any on this trip but enjoyed watching the kids with hay wagon ride etc. Very organized campground and very clean.
Sep 29, 2014
Wonderful park and delightful staff. The only suggestion we would have is reminding people NOT TO WALK THROUGH OTHERS CAMP SITE.
Sep 29, 2014
Out of all KOA campgrounds visited, this would be at the last of my list. We had a group site, which did not have any shade and was stinky, full of cow dung adjacent to the site. Even it had dog pup on the site. Could easily hear the freeway traffic noise. Not recommended for a quite camping :(
Sep 29, 2014
Very nice campground. Only two gripes: very expensive (almost a deterrent) to have site guests - $14 pp is ridiculius. We were having family from out of state meet near this KOA for a family wedding and for a few hours of visiting time for my family (not even using the pool or staying overnight) these fees were prohibitive. No change machine in laundry and 1/2 of the machines out of order.
Sep 29, 2014
Worked very good as a destination parking for a wedding we attended in Sonoma.
Sep 29, 2014
It is such a pleasure to have such a family friendly safe environment for my kids and I to come to, without having to drive 4 hours! Thank you so much Petaluma KOA you rock!

I loved the traffic control near the registration. The only downside were parents that were not supervising children. We had a couple of kids dart in front of us when leaving the campground. I even supervised some kids while we pulled out because parents were distracted. Also, cable was poor, my husband couldn't get a good signal to watch news and Stanford game.

My only criticism would be the long line at the store because of the same line for check in and store purchases, also the mark up on merchant at the store seemed pretty high.
Sep 29, 2014
When you call a make reservation, personnel should warn you about the danger and congestion when using old redwood hwy exit 476. Also when leaving campground inadequate signs to show how to exit campground.

Very friendly & beautiful place to stay! My wife got sick & we couldn't make our 1st day. The manager didn't charge us! Thank you Daniel!!
