We have stayed at many KOA locations, we will NOT return to this one. Smells like raw sewage and there are flies everywhere. Overly crowded and to make matters worse the staff is extremely rude. At check in I was scolded for arriving too early instead of being greeted. They were militaristic about the jumpy pillow. To the point where my kids cried. We paid a lot of money to be treated so poorly.

KOA is a great place for kids. I'd be more likely to return more often if there were more flexible booking options. A minimum 2 night stay is difficult to fit into an already busy family schedule.

Best KOA I've stayed. Great accommodations and service.

This must be one of the best KOAs in the country. A truly enjoyable experience for the children and me.

We had a great time enjoying a little of nature, swimming, bbqing, watching the outdoor movie and enjoying the 'tin can campers' reunion the weekend we went! Fantastic!

THE STAFF AT THIS KOA IS THE BEST. Our plans had changed late on the day of our arrival, a very busy Friday, and I left a voicemail at the office. Staff called both my wife and I (at a very late hour while we were still on the road!) to confirm receipt of our message and to give us late check-in details. Our lodge was clean, neat, and well-equipped. We have also stayed here with our trailer.

Overwhelming presence of RVs, guessing many people "live" there year-round. Felt cabins and tents and RVs were too closely packed in together, could hear conversation next door. Really wish there would have been a reading light next to the bed in the studio lodge. Otherwise nice!

Fun, friendly, clean and a great place for kids to be kids and parents to relax and enjoy.

Kids always have a blast when we come here. Staff was great. Showers were not as clean this time. Last time there was always someone coming around to dump the trash cans. We did it ourselves which ok but nicer to see campgrounds cleaner when everyone was busy doing their activities. This time there were tons of flies everywhere. Other than that, we had a great time!

I think the wristbands are insulting and degrading and show the owners are mistrusting customers. The camp is clean and very family-friendly.

This campsite was clean and had plenty of things and activities to keep the kids entertained. We all absolutely loved our stay and plan on returning soon.

Overall it was good for my first time. However it was surprising to be up all night my last night because the smoke dector battery was low and beeped all night.

Nice cabin, lots of activities, clean restrooms and showers. One comment: please consider allowing PVs (personal vaporizers) in the pool area. I was told by a staff member (very apologetically) that PVs were not allowed.

the kids had a great time as there was so much for them to do. The best KOA in CA. We've gone to 8 of them. great place you have

Very easy and fun weekend. So much for kids to do, and having meals for purchase was very convenient.

Not recommended to anybody. Staff is almost harassing us asking every two hours to move our car, when we are still unloading our stuff. Other campsite have two cars or more for more than a day and they did not get sited for having multiple vehicle.we camp to relax and that was annoying. Poor customer service. Not planning to come back to any KOA campground anywhere.

great location for exploring the Bay area and areas north of the city. Very quiet while we were there..but this is a HIGH density campground and could be noisy and cramped during busy weeks/weekends. Nice staff.

I enjoyed the stay so much that I made reservation for next year when I left. The only suggestion I have is that staying at the top of the hill was great however there were not enough bathrooms for the amount of campers. We had to wait in line or go to another camp area

My family had such a great time. Dj lyle and the karoake was such a hit! They loved the pet farm and bounce pillow and music by the pool too. I am.so impressed! Our cabin was so clean and for being non campers we were able to camp without buying alot of things like chairs and bbqs too. Super.fun! Thank you koa petaluma!

Delightful location, Clint have been a more pleasant stay.

We stayed in a lodge cabin and the cabin exceeded our expectations. We were there for 6 nights and I was only able to get on the internet once for a few mins. Lots for the kids to do. The grounds were okay. I would not tent camp there. Staff was great!

We've stayed here several times with our rv and in cabins. First time in delux lodge cabin though. Expensive but very nice.
Aug 22, 2014
Everything for the most part was great. I just wish when I request a specific room I get it and don't have to go back to the office to request another room because two years in a row I get the wrong room even after I have requested it on line.
Aug 22, 2014
Great environment and even greater staff! Our cabin was cozy and clean and our kids loved all the activities. We are making this trip an annual family outing. Thanks to the friendly staff

Mostly great but had to wait for propane since there was none ready when we went to grill our first night. Also, activities the next day had been cancelled, but when I complained they found someone to open the activities later in the day to accommodate us and gave us a free coupon for the banana bikes. They also did not have enough toilet paper or trash bags for 3 nights but we had some with us.
Aug 20, 2014
We have stayed here every year for the past 5 years.It seemed like there was a lot more litter this year and lines at the bathroom which I have never experienced before. we rented banana bikes and then went back the next day to rent again but the employee was new and didn't know how to ring up the bikes on a credit crd so she wrote down our cc numbers on pieces of paper.I am nervous about cc fraud
