Very nice, lots of kids for the Halloween season, pool/hot tubs were great after kids went to bed! Great location, HUGE itinerary of things to do locally!!
Oct 23, 2018
Too many dogs and this has to be the greediest park I have ever been to, I will never stay here again or tell anyone to stay here!. Total rip off.

Nice campground. Convenient to local attractions. Clean restrooms. Activities for the children. Ample space. Great pool, weather permitting. Mostly friendly staff.

Stayed at this KOA for two weeks in a motorhome. Excellent location within short distances to Wine Country and San Francisco.

When we arrived to our tent site, we were disappointed to see that we didn’t get what we asked for and were told by the res agent that we would have valley views. We were near an area where there was construction being done. Mounds of dirt and open trenches. It smelled like poop and we couldn’t even eat dinner outside. A tent near by had a baby crying all night and we didn’t get much sleep

Your rates are far too high! You would have received perfect scores otherwise. My group has been coming for 10 years and to see rates rise to this level is concerning. We have spoken to so many other campers and your excessive rates was universal. Consider doing what’s right for your customers and adjust your rates.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your input. We have many options for a economical vacation. The rates for holiday weekends are the highest rates being there are many additional activities included. Our Vineyard Terrace cabins are more economical and still include all of the fun activities. We have 12 RV pricing groups depending on the site to offer options for RV guests. thanks for staying with us.

Fantastic campsite, great staff and the cleanest public bathrooms and showers I’ve ever seen at a campsite. Great activities and friendly place to stay. My only wee thing would be the unheated pool tad too cold but rest is brilliant. We stayed across from playground and kids loved it and the wee train.

Clean surroundings and bathrooms. The kids loved the play structures. Just wish the pool was heated.

Fantastic stay! The Petaluma KOA does a great job at Halloween -- the kids have so much fun. There are many activities, including trick or treating, face painting, potluck, pumpkin painting, swimming, etc. A big shout out to Ryan, one of the counselors who is just terrific with the kids! Thank you!

I love this place and have been coming here for many years with several other families. The cost of the cabins and RV spots have skyrocketed and it is becoming too costly for us to go. As much as I appreciate the renovations that are taking place, I can’t help but feel like the cost is being passed over to us. $150 a night for a cabin that doesn’t even have a bathroom is a bit ridiculous!
Oct 22, 2018
Very good. The kids had a great time. Except there is no lock on restroom door in deluxe cabin and bike rental was closed on Saturday at 4:30 pm or earlier, different than what was stated in brochure. It would

Great place to get away on a budget!

Great Staff, events for kids, people were friendly, and facilities clean.

This is our favorite KOA campground! The staff is helpful and friendly. The cabins are clean and the landscaping is beautiful. I brought my daughter and 4 of her friends for a birthday getaway. It was the best party ever and the girls can't wait to come back. Thank you to the KOA staff for always making our stay memorable!!

Very large cg with lots of kids having fun.
Oct 22, 2018
$107 for a basically a space in a dirt parking lot. Not even a picnic table in our site(302). Instead? A play structure that neighboring kids loved to scream and screech starring at 6:45am. Luke warm showers. I understand supply and demand for camping in this area, but felt completely ripped off. $4.99 for a one gallon jug of water was just insult to injury. Never ever again.

We have been coming to this campground for a couple of years now and loved it except this time the flies were unbearable, and the smell of manure was awful, I know it has nothing you all are doing but it was pretty bad, also the pool was ice cold, is it ever heated? We do pay a lot to stay here so these are my concerns, and that's why I had to give 4/5 stars. Thanks for asking

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for smell and spoke to our surrounding dairies in hopes of finding a better solution for the future. The pool is getting all new heating/pump equipment as I am typing. We look forward to seeing you in the future.

My kids had rented the banana bike and requested for the adult size due to longer legs. I know for a fact you cannot pedal efficiently when they are too close. However the person who insisted on giving them the smaller bike seems to be bullying them into using it and insisted it will work. It did not work. Mind you we pay to rent these bikes. You should send me a refund and fire the bully.

I am sorry to hear about your bike rental experience. I am happy to refund your bike rental money. I will be contacting you to see how you would like your refund. We hope to see you again in the future. Pauline Wood

This campground is right next door to a dairy so the smell was horrible and the flies were out of control. Also it was way overpriced ($100 a night) just for a tent camping spot and the spots were so small that we could barely fit our two tents in it and the sites were so close together with little to no trees that the smoke from our neighbors camp fire blew straight into our tents.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for our neighboring dairies smell. We are working with our surrounding dairies to hopefully prevent this in the future. Thank you for your feedback on tent size we will keep it in mind as we continue to make changes to the tenting area.

Our site was amazing and perfectly located to the jump pillow. I have 4 year old twins boys and a 2 year old boy, and they all told me this was their favorite camping spot so far. we have camped at dozens of locations and the amenities here were spot on. we will be back and we will bring friends and family with us

Great stay. Love this KOA. A little pricey. Will come back.

We always enjoy our stay here. We are planning another one with our son and grand kids. Great location and amenities.
Oct 21, 2018
Great place. Cleanest pool we have seen during 10 days trip across CA. Pool was a bit cold but the hot tup was great! Only minus was too much smoke from the many fireplaces (each RV spot had a fire going).

Everything was great , except the spa closes to early , at 8pm we were just returning from a day exploring and everything is closed up for the night. Restroom were always clean

Came from so-so park to KOA Petaluma. It was like coming home! (We've been here three of four times). Lovely site H 114. Staff so friendly, warm, and shared a few laughs with me. Hated to leave but you all were full for Friday night and beyond. Not to worry--we will be back again and again. Thank you for everything. KOA Petaluma is the best!
Oct 20, 2018
Everything went well the camp ground is great and the staff was excellent. Very family friendly.

We were there the first part of October for 3 nights. Our site was amazing. Very nice patio with a table, chairs and a very nice fire pit.

We are glad you enjoyed our new upgraded sites. We look forward to seeing you in the future.

The campground had a lot of activities. It would be a great destination but it's almost too big for someone just looking for a place to stay while enjoying the San Francisco area.
Oct 19, 2018
We have stayed here several weeks at the end of summer. The staff was very friendly and the park is very clean. Its pretty busy on the weekends but was nice and quiet during the week. Definitely a Family friendly park.
Oct 19, 2018
Thank you.
Oct 19, 2018
Short stay but camp is very organized, clean and easy to get to. Staff was very friendly. Came in late in the dark and tired. Better marking and exit signage is the only suggestion I have. This is a very nice KOA!

First time trailer camper owners and This was our first trip in our new Lance 1475. We think we might become addicted to RV-ing! This campsite made everything easy and it was clean and quiet and everyone was so friendly.

Emily was very helpful helping us extending our trip. Eve have help checking in. Great stay!

Had a great time, used it as base to travel into San Francisco by bus on one day and by ferry on another.

It was a great father daughter Halloween campout weekend. It reinforced our belief that the KOA Campgrounds are a safe place to take your. This was after a drug addict tried to break in to our camping cabin at the Willits KOA in the middle of the night over fathers day weekend.

Sorry to hear about your previous experience at willits and very happy to have you staying with us!

We had a great time!

It was horrible. Who wants to tent camp in the middle of an RV park with streets all around. I assumed tent camping would have an area to the side, not smack in the middle. It was like putting up a tent on main street.
Oct 17, 2018
The cabin itself was very nice and comfortable—exceeded our expectations. The person who checked us in was not at all welcoming—bordered on surly/rude. We were charged for 3 nights’ stay; were only there for 2. Please correct/credit our card and advise.
Oct 16, 2018
We loved all the activities for the kids and how safe it felt. Clean facilities and friendly staff are a plus too!
Oct 16, 2018
My site was very muddy or else I would have rated 5 stars. I asked the front desk if they could not water the second night as I couldn't really enjoy my outdoor area but that wasn't an option. I will definitely be back but I will request any cabin besides, 247 or 274, not sure the #. I was tempted to ask for discount as I didn't get full use if my site. Everything else was 5 stars.
Oct 16, 2018
Always a good time!
Oct 16, 2018
We were disappointed this trip with the horrible site we had (162&163) next to a transformer that was unreasonably loud, and two huge water tanks (not on the map). But Melissa was awesome with helping us move sites for the second half of our stay. The events for the kids were fun, and in the end we all had a good time. The bathrooms need more space outside the shower for changing/keeping clothes
Oct 16, 2018
This is a great campground. We usually stay at state campgrounds but stay here to visit our son who lives near by. Lots of activities for kids.
