Lots to keep young kids busy. Bathrooms were kept clean.

The cleanest, most fun, friendly, awesome KOA in America!

We had a shady spot on the endo of a row. The kamp was crowded and lots of kids, but it was very quiet at night.

Normally we would rate this KOA a 5. The staff in the office is great. This trip it seems many people were not aware of camp etiquette as people were constantly walking through the occupied sites. restrooms very hot, poor ventilation.

Despite electrical problems in the B row, We had a great time.

"It was awesome! I really want to do a KOA again! Awesome cabins!" Ace Brodhun, 6 We had a fantastic time at the Petaluma/SF KOA! We will be back! Thank you for all you offer & an incredible, kind, hard working, upbeat staff!

If you have small children this park is ideal. Our stay was not that enjoyable because of the noise the motorcyclists made and the campers next to us who were also noisy well after 10 pm. Forget about using the pool if you are an adult because it is filled with so many small children. Also, we had to move from our site after we had set up because of insufficient power and could not use our ac.

We were fortunate enough to grab a last minute spot here. Once we arrived and checked in we were so impressed that we looked into staying the next night. Our entire family loved it. The entire staff were very friendly and helpful and the grounds and amenities were above and beyond our expectations. Looking forward to planning another trip next year just to stay here.

We had a pleasant time. We like many aspects of your campground. This year, with the new rule of "no off-loading if another car is on site" was burdensome. I understand the law, but I would have liked a little understanding or time to off-load.

We loved this campground. It may have had something to do with the two big redwoods on our site! Even though the campground was busy ( first weekend in August) we felt it was very well managed and maintained.

We had a great time, kids were crying when it was time to leave.

This is the perfect place for children, a lot to do here.

Great campground! We took our grandchildren for 3 nights and they had the time of their lives - so much for them to do. Safe and friendly! They both told me this was the best vacation they had ever been on.

The campground was pretty crowded. Thought it was very poor planning to be cleaning the bathrooms at 10:30 AM. Would make much more sense to clean them later, after people were done with their morning showers. Otherwise was a great place and will definately return.

We stayed in a tent for four days with the understanding we would be in a forrested area. Instead it was next to the highway and a cow pasture. If the smell of the cows and the flies in our food wasn't bad enough, the wind in the afternoon's made it almost impossible to make a fire. The other rv areas were not so bad or next to cows! It did have clean bathrooms, good showers and a nice pool.

Loved the gem mining. Great for kids. Give yourself time at the site!
Aug 07, 2015
Well kept, great staff, good store, great facilities, they don't enforce the "quiet Time!" only night number is for emergencies, night manager needed.
Aug 07, 2015
Loved it! The spaces are wide, the setting is gorgeous. Management obviously cares a lot about this property and it shows! Very friendly and professional!

For the price we paid, we expected a cleaner campground. Both sites had trash on the ground, cigarette butts and papers/ trash in the fire pit. You all need to clean up the grounds before the next customer. Very disappointed to say the least.
Aug 07, 2015
Friendly staff, great site! I'm a return customer and will camp again en route home to San Diego - thanks for all that you do!!!

This is a campground for young families. Older people do not like uneven, dirt sites. The dump station is in the most inconvenient spot we have ever seen! As seasoned travelers, cost and value do not match. This KOA is very over-priced with a difficult layout. No, we would not stay here again.

While we expected our lodge would have A/C, it was manageable overnight and we spent much of the day in the pool. We always love our short vacations here, pleasant and friendly, expect to keep coming back.

Great place for kids

Wow, great facility, friendly staff, WONDERFUL tour of San Francisco by the best tour guide ever, John!!!! We will be sharing and talking about this part of our trip until we can no longer speak!

Such a fabulous place to stay! Whether you choose to go camping or "glamping" there is something for everyone at the Petaluma KOA!

My family and I had a great time at the Petaluma/San Francisco KOA, all the staff were extremely helpful and nice.

Based on our one night, we were placed next to the entertainment center and movie house. With all of the kids there it was very noisy but that is not your fault. It would have been nice to have been asked about our usage and lack of kids and placed in a quieter spot, but I really doubt one existed. Pretty expensive for one night also. I am thinking of coming out of retirement and opening a KOA
Aug 05, 2015
Very expensive. Internet is bad.
Aug 05, 2015
Very busy place but we had a lot of fun at the pool and petting zoo!
Aug 05, 2015
Site was beautiful, shower drains were plugged with lights not working. Staff at front desk had little knowledge about local area.
Aug 05, 2015
Nice campground but had issues with people walking across our site all night (employees were in area on carts). Manager said we were supposed to complain at time (really, at 2 in morning we should be walking around looking for employees?). Employees on carts observed behavior and did nothing.

This campground had a very crowded, concrete feel. Sites were much too close together and it was very loud way past quiet time. The toilets had to be flushed 3 times to empty properly, but I was the only guest to have figured that out, so the toilets were always nasty.The pool was probably great for little kids, but ridiculous for teens. Based on this location, we would never stay at a KOA again.

This was my first time at a KOA Kampground and I was very satisfied, and impressed with the lodging and amenities provided. I will definitely use KOA in the future!
Aug 05, 2015
Love this KOA, every time.
Aug 05, 2015
Not enough showers and toilets available for the amount of guests. Cabin nice.
Aug 05, 2015
Too bad I didn't have time to actually stay there; all I had time for was sleeping overnight then leaving, but it appeared to be very family-friendly,
Aug 05, 2015
Extremely safe and friendly. Easy place to stay. My kids want to live there!
Aug 05, 2015
YOU NEED STRONGER MORE EFFICIENT EXHAUST FANS IN THE RESTROOMS
Aug 05, 2015
Music and loud behavior of neighbors after 10pm and staff didn't intervene even after requested to do so. Also, long lines for toilets and showers (only 2 of each), bad water pressure and temperature.

There were many kids and the camp ground was not laid out in the best manor.
Aug 05, 2015
Wonderful KOA to stay at! Want to go back today!
Aug 04, 2015
Fantastic sight. Great facilities. A bit busy for my personal taste, but for people that want a great holiday for the whole family with loads of facilities & activities, this is the place to go.

The site was to small and unleveled we told them had a 33 ft.trailer with 2 sliders had no room to put our awning out . I know we could have told them but didn't, there was a party with loud music we were not told about. We stayed at another KOA where there was going to be a wedding party we got a call and told when we checked in about it. then we had a very loud motor home come in at 11:30 pm.
