Place is nice. Very big with lots of activities for families and kids. Little cabin was super cute. Only wished they had small heaters. Wish they would have put me closer to my friends though. I was told a certain cabin then was moved to a cabin much further away. Otherwise it was perfect.

I gave it a 3 mostly because the mattress in our deluxe lodge was very uncomfortable. Very soft and sagged into the middle. For the price we pay to stay, I'd expect a much more comfortable stay. I hope you can replace with new mattresses soon.

our 12+ stay over 8 years. Rates are too high. I emailed & called Mike & no response. This time trick or treating was on a Friday and messed EVERYONE up. Past people KNOW its on a Sat & office was rude & horrible about it. We should be notified of bathroom closures too and were not. The last few years have been HORRIBLE with staff and communication and prices. Owner call me please 9254052145

This is her 7th year coming to the Petaluma KOA for October. This year was horrible. The management and the Workers were not nice. The activity schedule was messed up and most of the campers were incredibly unhappy throughout the campground. We are so disappointed we’re not sure we’re going to come back.

Been coming for close to 10 years and service has gone downhill. Staff is rude and unhelpful. Used to be such a great place for our family. Very sad and disappointing

Easy to get to, nice cabin with supplies, and comfortable. Next time we will bring the RV. Thank you!

The cabins are nice and clean, and grounds are very nicely kept up. Staff was very ill informed and communication was severing lacking. We held a family reunion there and while the campground is nice the vibe of some of the staff was aggravating and somewhat unfriendly. We won't stay there again.

It would have been nice to have been informed that the main bathrooms were under construction. We checked in at dark, with 2 children, and had to find a bathroom (in the dark). That could have been avoided if the person at the counter had let us know. Otherwise things were fine.

We all had a great time--thanks!

So much fun! My children enjoyed all the fun, outdoor activities! The KOA was clean, safe and beautiful. Staff, as always, was friendly and efficient. Thank you!

A few suggestions: Have dairy free ice cream options, better organized train ride for kids without a mad rush, shade sails for the kid areas when it's so hot (jumping pillow, play structure). Great stay otherwise!

The facilities were okay: the water in the showers was warm, the pool was nice. We were told there would be no activities, but there were in the end, so that was a nice surprise. The cabin we stayed in was very dirty. The floors had not been washed all year, so that was disappointing. Close enough to Lagunitas to Uber to and enjoy some beer and bands. It was fine, but nothing spectacular.

Just a quick weekend trip with family and friends. Everything was wonderful, and we had a great time. We will be back.

Advertises lots of activities. We asked twice about the schedule for the weekend, they said there was nothing. Nonetheless, our kids were turned away from rock-climbing on Saturday evening because they were not taking anymore. They also did have some kind of tractor pull ride and we noticed a movie playing. Shower floors had trash. I reported a faucet running hot water for 3 days and not fixed

Great stay but door handle sticks and the ceiling fan is very wobbly in our L247 cabin. Otherwise, a great stay.

I have never stayed at a KOA or camped before but this was a blast. So many things to do. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground felt safe. The most dangerous thing at your campground was the children running out onto the road from in between cars. Not everyone was great at driving at a slow speed. Hope no one got hurt. I hope to come back again. Thank you for a great time

The only reason why I’m not giving it a five is because I had some very rude people next to me their kids almost ran me over twice with their bike hit my fire pit and almost hit my two year old I should not have to be fighting with my neighbors about two dogs nonstop barking I could not enjoy my campsite. KOA needs more people driving around especially at night you can’t find any help

My family and I had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.

Deluxe cabin was dirty, porch was dirty, water heater heated intermittently. Cobwebs extensively throughout camp cabins. Positives were there is a lot to do, landscape looks great.

The front desk employees are not nice. When we ask for more towels and pillows. Anything else was great!

All n all it was a great time. We/ my family have made this a yearly gathering weekend event and look forward to next year!! I do have an environmental concern and request that there be more accessible and/or at each site a blue, recycle and trash/landfill bins clearly marked what goes where. And at some point introduce composting bins considering being a zero-waste business.

KOA it’s set up for family’s but on the week days they don’t have as many activities even though there are a ton of kids. The train guy was sick so they canceled the train ride which was s big disappointment to the little kids. The weekends are a lot better but more crowded ...over all the Petaluma KOA is much cleaner than others camp grounds and we always have a great time..

It was great fun. We did miss having the movies at the pool however. We loved watching them there during our past trips.

The cabin was clean and welcoming. Wished there had been an overhead fan in the cabin. Convenient to the old Petaluma downtown.

Loved our cabin and just got to enjoy time with the family. Nice location in Petaluma. Definitely coming back.

Was very good. Did not enjoy the wristband but do understand the theory behind it. Needs better wifi signal
Aug 08, 2019
Most everyone very nice grounds were kept clean plenty of things to do during the day my only concern was on two nights we had neighbors that were very loud and I didn’t know who to contact to have somebody come and talk to them

Very busy campground but expected being close to SF and wine country. Still, quiet at night, friendly staff, cabin was very clean and well supplied. Very satisfied with my stay. This is one of the best KOAs in the northern part of California. I will be back again when my travels take me back to this area.

Unfortunately there was a mix up with our reservation that really put a damper on our experience. We were supposed to be in a cabin with bunks and more kitchen & after checking in we realized a mistake by someone at KOA. I did get a refund for one night of the three night stay, however the cost of eating out and my kids having to sleep on pads on floor was not what we'd hoped for in our stay there

there were many things missing in the cabin like a toaster. there was one there last year. also the staff at the KOA messed up two parts of our parties reservations. with wrong cabin and wrong dates. So we were disappointed.

LOVED IT

Always great! One suggestion- fitted bottom sheets for the bunks. They're hard to make up, especially the top bunk and fitted sheets would help.
