This was our first family camping trip with our 6 year old twins and they absolutely loved it. Everyone was nice and helpful. The only thing that I thought could be improved is the showers beside the Kamper Kitchen. They dont have nearly as much room to change outside of the shower stall as the showers in the other bathrooms. They also don't have any hooks in the shower/changing area.

told Koa when making reservations that we have a Dog (Cane corso) they said it was fine. 4hours after setting everything up and A 2 hour drive, the manager comes to our site and tells us we have to leave! Our dog was on a leash and next to us the whole time. Said we would get a full refund and we didn't. Would never recommend this place! Ever!

Worst stay ever. Rules not enforced. Especially "quiet" time. Loud, boisterous campers until 2am. Children running through our site to play basketball at 7am. I requested a specific area and was given a site that backed up to the pool/basketball/jump pillow even though there were sites available during our stay in the area requested. Children running and screaming through our site all day/night

Everything is ok We liked the camping kitchen

Lots to keep the kids busy! Showers need hook inside, there is no place to hang a bag, towels or clothing which doesn't work so well. General store is great!

The only problem we had with KOA is the showers were too small and not enough of them considering the size of the KOA. We were happy to see so many tenting sites as that has been a problem for us. The staff were great and the tour of San Francisco was outstanding and the self guided wine tours were great.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The sites are small & it is hard to see where your site starts & ends to determine where to pitch the tent. We wish the rock wall was up more often & that there were more activities earlier in the day. An adult only hot tub would be great,the employees did close it down at one point to dredge the built up gunk, but their were a lot of kids (I counted 30 at one time) in the hottub unsupervised.

My family had a wonderful time during our weekend stay. We were in the "upper" area nestled in with the RV's, along with some tents as well in our tent trailer. The activities were great for keeping us busy over the weekend.

Site 302 which is located in the rear playground area is a bad tent site -We tried to move sites but couldn't This info should be disclosed at the time of resv and we should not have been charged the full price

too crowded on the weekends. pool is trashy and feels kinda skuzzy.
Aug 03, 2015
We only stayed two nights, but had a blast. So much stuff for the kids to stay entertained. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, the staff, and lucked out with some cool camp neighbors. We will definitely be coming back.

All the staff were friendly and helpful. Thanks

The Campground was clean, Staff was Excellent!!!. Loved the pool and playground for children. Hated standing in line for the bathroom and shower. There are way to may sites for just 2 bathroom stalls. We stayed on a Saturday night, it was crowded.

I was very impressed with this KOA's variety of activities it had for my kids. Grounds are kept up and staff was friendly whenever we had a question. I was surprise to find that campsites that only had water hook ups that there was a community area that had a stove, sinks, and electric!
Aug 02, 2015
great activities and location.Kabins were in decent conditions. Bathroom facilities were not as clean as other KOA's. Activity Staff worked hard and were friendly. Front Counter staff was friendly. This was a really busy camp ground. Lots of summer vacationers. Last night we stayed at tent site which was clean and not full of ants but it was packed in the tent area by the play ground and loud.

Fun place for kids

Soirée très bruyante. Site de tente petit et pas ombragée.
Aug 02, 2015
employees were really friendly. Everyone there was having a nice time. Nice grounds.

Spent $120 for 2 nights for a dirt area tent site :( Noisy campground way into the night Walked in on two drunk people in the men's bathroom having sex on the sink area. When I arrived there was a bum on a motorcycle in my spot whom wasn't a guest there. Took a while for the park to get rid of him

We enjoyed the stay, even with the pool closed for the day. the staff did all they could to take care of all the guests.We started with computer fail to check in,but they did the job and made us feel like we were the only care they had.We got our site and were very comfortable. Even with all the staff, there was small issues. More restrooms and showers would be nice.Still in all the staff did well
Aug 01, 2015
Tent sites are a little small, but the staff is great and they offer a large variety of activities and amenities.
Aug 01, 2015
Loved the animals and the staff was friendly. It was a little difficult taking a shower as there was no hooks or benches to put my things on.
Aug 01, 2015
My wife, 3 kids and I stayed and had a great time. We drove to Dillon Beach and Bodega Bay within 30 minutes. The camp ground was always clean with friendly staff. The KOA provided plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained.

The campground is well kept and clean. Quiet hours are neither kept nor enforced, unfortunately. The site we had also had a light shining on it all night and the freeway noise 24/7. The amenities were great though and my daughter had a blast.

Great location, great staff, great value.
Jul 31, 2015
Very friendly and helpful staff. I love the Kamper Kitchen. Very clean facilities. I would recommend anyone to stay here. Lots are a bit tight depending on your site.
Jul 31, 2015
The staff could not be nicer and more accommodating, tours were fabulous. Clean and easy, showers a bit small and need a few more. Cows!!

We faced the 'church' and communal eating/chilling area for a 30+ group which virtually encompassed The Kampers Kitchen. Occupying spots for individual tents. They rose (waking my kids and dogs)at 6.30am every day,first service was 7am singing, prayers,sermons imposing inappropriate volume and content on everyone. I'm told managers are asking them to respect camp rules but nothing changed.
Jul 30, 2015
The staff was friendly and helpful. Campsite and restrooms were clean.
Jul 30, 2015
First time staying. Great staff. And my kids love it. Keep up the great work. May be a zip line In the works.

Too expensive reservation was for a site in the trees, but site was in an open field
Jul 29, 2015
We loved it! This is one of the best KOA 's around. Loved the outdoor kitchen and pool. The only thing, was trying to get a shower. We were tent campers and the showers were always busy and needed cleaned up a little more frequently. Other than that it was a fabulous stay!

Have them cover the pipe sticking out from the cement between the pool and restroom. I hit my knee hard on it (much pain). The worker said it has happened before and I know it will happen again. Next person might want to sue. It crossed my mind as a was almost crying and limping away. But roomy and shaded tent sites. Lots of free activities for the kids with a huge gameroom and playground.
