We made reservation 3 months prior & told we had a site then the day we checked in it was changed without telling us even though all our paperwork given to us the expected site was written on there. Senior staff were rude to members of our party who showed up first and yet we paid in cash and almost $3000 for almost 50 people. The site we reserved was closer to restroom, pool and parking lot.

We enjoyed everything. Wish we would've had the chance to cruise around on the banana bikes. The ice cream social was yummy and the poolside movie was a nice event to get us away from the fireside for a little while. Our tent site 91 was right up against the fence of the cow and donkey pasture which we really enjoyed although it smelled a little bit :)

Good parts - lots of activities to do for the kids, nice pool, friendly staff, garbage by site. Bad things - lack of patrol at night to check for noisy campers ( we complained due to our neighbors partying until 2am ). Lack of shower rooms for the size of the campground. Toilet doors didn't lock and you have to literally squeeze in the bathrooms as there is no room to open the door!

Your campground is severely lacking for tent campers with young children, their first time. Really - next to the cow pasture. I call it a health hazard. Have the health officials been to visit you lately? Maybe... Don't treat tent campers like 3rd class citizens, with the movie screen shining into our tent past 10:00 PM on Sat. night & country music before 7:30 Sun. morning? How uncivil!

The campground was clean and well maintained, however, it was very crowdy during the weekend. Maybe in weekdays it is more pleasant to stay there.

It was our first time taking the kiddos to a KOA campground and we didn't know what to expect. We had such a great time there this past weekend that we decided to book another camping trip for next month with our friends!

Very nice place, the woman at the front desk seemed to be confused why three 30 something adults would be traveling together through California, but all in all nice ammentities, the bathrooms were alittle smelly and there were alot of loud foreigners who were crowding the "Kitchen" area.

While this is a good place for a family looking for a very casual "camping" experience we were hoping for something different. The petting zoo was a neat feature during the day, however the rooster kept us up all night

Not a great place to tent camp. Too close to driveways, too much lighting at night. Stayed at several campgrounds in CA,OR, hardly got any sleep in this one. This campground is probably great, if you are in a camper and have kids, lots of activities. On the plus side, it is huge, they have lots of employees and they seem to keep everything clean and in working order.

The resort is beautiful, lots of trees and things to do, I think you guys could go even further and plan family activities to make the experience more rewarding and enjoyable. Any games that you could imagine, give away prizes for arcade or 15% discount on next stay, things like that. By the way I never had any issues at Koa Petaluma, but this last Friday some people were late talking very loud

A little too busy for me but great for my purpose this time. The young girls who serverd me each morning were wonderful. Very helpful and pleasant and friendly. It is always so great to see young caring people dealing with the public. Thank you very much, ruby

I didn't feel there were an adequate number of bathrooms for the amount of people staying in the campground. There were only two bathrooms for about 5 rows of campers. Quite a few people in a close space. The best part of the campground was the location. Very close to restaurants and the town of Petaluma.

We absolutely LOVED our time here, in fact it was too short! We will definitely stay again.

I've been to many campgrounds over the years with my 4 boys. being a single mom, it is hard to "entertain" while preparing meals etc. KOA has so many activities for the kids, it made it so much easier. We cannot wait for our next trip!

The bathroom building is falling apart. Too many group staying here (over crowded). During the night KOA must enforce the quiet time rules. The group next to us stayed up until 2am. Yes, the WIFI is terrible in all KOA so far we stayed in.

I'm not an avid camper but my family and I enjoyed our stay with our friends. The plus for me was that the cleaning staff was very tentative over the weekend.

We had an amazing time!

David the manager was extremely rude to me and to one of his employees or trainees during my stay don't appreciate that.

We had a great time camping at the KoA! iMy 2 recommendations for improvement are, larger campsites so your neighbor isn't 1foot away, and better signs to designate which site is yours. We stayed in site 206 and apparently someone was on our site to the right of us. When the person to the left of us came we were in theirs. The person at the end had to set up camp by the dumpsters

Camping at Petaluma is great. Not strict with curfews. Employees are nice and accommodating
