Highway near by , Lot of noise whole night . on Sunday morning big alarm sound from the pipeline triggered, the technician was able to switch off, everyone woke up couple of hours earlier than expected to rise. Very crowded

We had site 116 and it was horrible. There was no coverage or smaller trees to create shelter or any privacy. It was a busy weekend, so the campground was full, but this site should not exist, it was very small and really disappointing.

Our campsite was right next to a cattle field, and the water trough was 10 feet from our site. The cows kept coming up to drink. The cow smell was very strong. For $55 a night I would expect a nicer location

Had to be the top KOA I've ever been to. Lots of activities and a great staff

Even though we stayed only one night, it was a lot of fun being with friends and family. We stayed at a different site this time and liked the convenience to the bathrooms and kitchen. :) Looking forward to next summer's stay!

Just GREAT..THANKS

Stayed Friday the 8th of aug. Did not expect to be kept awake all night with adult party goers playing beer pong and screaming all night. The next day I was exhausted should really get a refund for all my family went through. It is suppose to be a family park not a play ground for drunk out of control adults who wanted to get there drink on. Please send me a full refund for my nights stay.

Top notch....As always!!!

This is the first time we've stayed in a KOA. We're more private campers, so the fact that we were 10 feet away (at most) from our camping neighbors on either side was...interesting. It does look like a great place to go if you have kids - all the activities and pool, etc. I can't rate it as far as other KOAs are concerned, but it's not our type of camping. The staff was very friendly, however

We absolutely LOVED our stay. Wish it was longer, and will definitely be back soon. As a matter of fact, we are already looking at dates.

wonderful place to come with grandchildren

Our stay was great. Very friendly staff. Lots for the kids to do. That was the best part. We LOVED the banana bikes and rock wall.

I have to say the staff was very very good. I thought the showers were very small.

I stayed here because San Fran area hotels were pretty much fully booked. Good place to sleep but $50 seems steep for a small camp spot.Overall not bad though and perhaps worth the value if you were to stay for the amenities.

We had a great time once again at KOA Petaluma. Our third time this summer! We brought two families to try for their first time and they loved it as well. We are coming back September 20th for tent camping. We wanted to try something different, but kabins and lodges have a two night minimum. Maybe next year. Thank you.

Awesome campground! Could use some more private campsites; maybe off to the side or away from othersites.

There is so much to do at this koa you sometimes forget you are camping. The kids get to do what they want and I am confident they are safe as they explore their surroundings. We will definitely stay here again!

I cant tell you how diappoited I am in the location I was given for my three nights stay. very small tent area on the hill, so small that I had to leave my vehicle at the over flow parking area. for the price I paid I could have stayed at a local hotel comfortably. I visited the park three weeks in advance and when I arrived with family in tow, I was shown to a site not on any map w/cows too close

We will definitely be coming back. It is a great place for our kids to play in the pool, ride their bikes and roast marshmallows with friends. Great times!!

Perfect for the RVing family who chooses to stay around camp. For the tenting family who doesn't, it was overpriced and had way too few showers and toilets. There was a constant wait! On the one morning we did laundry, my son enjoyed the bounce pillow and petting zoo, but that wasn't worth the inflated cost.

This KOA is very clean, nice clean bathrooms and showers, and great amenities. However the fact that you have to pay $12 for each visitor at your camp site(each day),kids or adults, is ridiculous. I just wanted to have my sister, her husband and kids who live there to come have a campfire and I had to pay. Also $7-$12 for fake gold panning in a trough and $8hr for the bikes each day is steep.

Was given ONLY spot with NO SHADE #116. With my pop up canopy over table and adjacent to tent, we were able to create a square of shade, but also dealt with a deluge of flies. After first night requested move to one spot over. Was told no, there was no way to move unless we wanted to go to back hill. Since I like to keep an eye on my children, I decided that would not be a reasonable move.

A very "active" place with lots to do. The staff was incredibly accommodating and provided excellent customer service.

Un bon camping pas trop loin de San Francisco. Propre, serviable et bien entretenu. Les terrains sont cependant, trop près l'un de l'autre.

For as many people that were camping while I was there, the quite hour rule was followed by all.

Beautiful setting and very clean. Always enjoy our stay.

the spot given to us had high grass and ants, and it was also over crowded

I love the family welcome we got. Staff was very pleasant and informative. I love how clean and safe is for the kids to play freely. I love it! I love the banana bikes! We had a blast. Thank you!

Our family has been coming to this location for many years and we absolutely love it here. Great staff and great improvements. We like that they have installed showers near the campers kitchen, but extremely dislike the mess that the showers make on the floor in such a small space. Overall,this location has been our favorite KOA yet.

Propre, attirant et service impeccable.

Children's amenities/showers were good. Campsites beyond poor. Campsites gave no room for the tent (we had 2 tents, told KOA in advance). There was a road on 3 sides of our site and we had cars coming/going all night long around us. Our chairs only fit near the grill of our car so no "sitting around the campfire" nor a campfire as our tents were up against the fire ring. Will not return here.

LOVED IT! so happy that we gave it a try. It is a wonderful place for families, such an amazing deal, we only wished that we could have stayed for a week. We will definitely be returning for a longer stay. We have 3 kids ages 1, 6, and 9, and they had a blast. Hope to see you soon.

The bathroom does not have any where to hang or lay toiletry bags or towels. The outdoor kitchen area is good.

4yrs ago we had a great experience here. This time we were unhappy with the spot we got 295 was the worst location ever it was like sleeping in our bedroom with the light on. The security light was on all night which was horrible. We had a hard time getting a good sleep. We asked to move but no other spot was available. Also quiet times need to be enforced!

Petaluma Koa is the best one! Danny, Susan, Tori, Melisa, Judy and all of the staff are so wonderful! My granddaughter and I had a wonderful stay! This was her first time to stay on a Saturday she loved the pool party! Thank you again for being so wonderful and making us feel like family!
