The gentleman working when we arrived Feb. 13th at 8pm, was the kindest person. He made our long drive & late arrival a much easier & less stressful one. Thank you kind KOA man!!

The park is nice and we liked the location but the customer service was not very good. We weren't treated very nicely. Website said a different price and charging for a 4 yr is ridiculous in my option.

Nice but rainy We fell in the mud on the way to the restroom

We came just for New Year's Eve. We had a good time and met some nice people. But we were a little disappointed that the party ended right at midnight. We were prepared for staying a bit longer.

All great but for the over the top thank you message! Something a little less enthusiastic would read as more sincere!

Best KOA in which we have EVER stayed! Lots of shade trees; quiet; some birds. Oh! A swimming pool and the lovely fragrance of farm animals... but only if the prevailing winds were to blow from the wrong direction, which was rare.

We have stayed before and enjoyed our stay however, this time we arrived after 9:00 and were placed in the worst spot ever. It was supposed to be a tent site however, the ground was so hard, we couldn't drive stakes (even with a five pound weight). The site had no grass, and it was next to cows and the freeway. There were atleast 20 better sites available too. Poor hospitatilty.

We stayed 1 night instead of planned 3. Helpful, friendly staff, but out of their depth. Spread manure causes millions of flies. Dozens of screaming kids terrorize site with noise and leave restrooms in shambles. No chance to have a swim (kids again). Will strongly avoid this in future.

My sight smelled strongly of sewer s... Our whole stay, probably should have requested a tent sight but don't think it would have made a difference very disappointed don't recall this problem last year during our last stay it was unbearable we feel Entitled to a discount on next stay hopefully problem will be corrected just sayin . sincerely Grant M Dorsey PS Can't a Give A Good Review Sorry

The campsite was nice & big (no. 97) but the smell of cow manure & urine was so intense that it was difficult to enjoy. Also, the proximity to the highway was not idea. Perhaps some bushes along the fence would help? Customer service was great though!

I enjoy this KOA because of the kid-friendly atmosphere. The playground is very nice, the pool, the jumpy pillow, the petting zoo and more. The trick or treating on Sat. night was a blast for the kids. Debra and John, some of your bathroom/maintenance personnel, were very friendly and helpful. The store is great, too. Has all the things you forgot at home.

Christine is not the one who organized this stay for the 90 people who were there or stayed there. I am the one who set it up and put it together, with some help from Christine. We had the Deluxe Cabin that sleeps 6, and had to pay for day use for 2 of the 6. I also do not understand not having washcloths in the bathroom. I was very grateful for the security the camp had, and all the activities.

Got to park our 1968 Travco up on the Hill. No connections for us but lots of alone time on a wonderful 3 day vacation! Thanks K.OA.!! We shall return!!

The employees were terrific, the pool is great. Loved the petting zoo, and nice kids that staffed it. We were in the group campsite. Fwy noise, and they had the sprinklers on upon arrival. Need to clean the bathrooms a bit more often during high traffic times.

It was great except the first night with a lunatic but they were nice enough to refund.

We had a blast with all the activities that were happening. Great employees that were fantastic with the kids too! However, I felt that the tent site we stayed at and the extra charges for my children was excessive for what we got. To top off the tiny campsite we were at there was a lamp that shined in our tent all night long. Try not to penny and dime people so much!!!!

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.

Love this KOA. They have it all!

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 :(

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.

A wonderful Kamground for RVers and Tent folk. A well kept tent area with nearby restrooms and showers, even a Kamp Kitchen if you want to make it easy on yourself. Grounds are well kept and staff are super friendly and helpful. Store goods a bit pricey but you pay for convenience. Lotsnof Kamp activities in the high season. Did I mention the huge pool and spa?

Our cubscout den (8 adults + 8 kids) went there for an outing. We enjoyed our stay and the facilities were great. The swimming pool was a bit crowded for our activities but worked out. The location is easy to find because of its proximity to freeway but we could also hear freeway noise during the night.

one of the coolest KAOs we`ve been to, but also the most expensive and loudest one. We paid 47$ for a tent site with a KOA value card, but the pool and hot tub are huge and there are a lot of fun activities for families. For two students like us, it wasn`t the best deal, but the atmosphere was great!

Online, we reserved space with electric/water. What we got was a site with water only. When I attempted to rectify the error, I was treated very rudely & the situation was not resolved. In addition, it is filthy, the grounds full of fleas, and it stinks. DO NOT go to this KOA! A Motel 6 stay is better than this place or even a Walmart parking lot!

This KOA has the most hospitable staff I have ever encountered while visiting a managed campground. All of the facilities were extremely well-maintained. A wonderful environment for visitors with young children. I have chosen to book reservations at this KOA every time I have visited the San Francisco area. In summary, just a beautiful campground.

This KOA was the best we've visited so far. The playground was huge and fun, petting area was neat, and the jumping pillow was a huge draw and super fun. We also enjoyed the large pool and hot tub. And the bathroom! The campground bathroom was like something out of Vegas. It was the nicest public shower house I've ever experienced, and I've been to many! It was glittery and glamorous and clean!

Grounds and campsite were exceptional. This is our 2nd time at KOA camping with local folks who have Developmental disabilities, and it's been an ordeal getting everyone checked in and to the campsite both tim, as they all arrived at different times.The two gentlemen manning the front were particularly gruff. If it wasn't for the kindly patient Dianne in the store, we would stay at springlake

Loved it! Very family friendly.

They are a little strict on noise! I understand the need for quite but to be bugged at 9;45 on a Saturday night is a bit much. Everyone is on vacation! It was also very crowded that weekend and the bathrooms needed a bit more attention, kinda gross because they were so busy.

This is a great KOA. We loved the Tent sites here, during the week, it is nice and quiet but on the weekend there is a ton of people including kids who run around screaming at 8am. Nice friendly people, good atmosphere!

We had a good stay, that was what we needed for that stop, internet access is working perfectly, laundry is clean. It seams to be a great campground for families with small kids.

What a great campground! Definitely huge, but well maintained, and a ton of great activities for everyone! Definitely enjoyed swimming in the pool, while watching a movie. The staff are friendly and helpful, and have a vast wealth of knowledge! Fantastic!
