We checked in here for one night in one of their full hook up pull thru sites. The spot was spacious and the layout of the campground was really nice. It was large, but not loud. There is a pasture smell but that's because you're next to farm land. This was a short drive from Sonoma which met our needs...

We live in Petaluma & took the San Francisco Tour with out of town guests . Plumb wonderful.....We have been traveling for many many years and this one with John as the guide was clearly one of our top tour experiences ever.

I'm reading several reviews of this place that talk about a lot of noise and, frankly, we just didn't experience that. We had a cabin w/o bath and some friends had an RV site. The RV sites do seem a bit close together but the cabins were great with privacy between them. They even have TVs in the room, although...

We checked into this KOA for a one night tent site. The tents are right next to a pasture so it smells like cow manure all the time. The ground was so hard and rocky that my husband had to move the tent several times and still use a hammer to get the stakes in the ground. All of this...

This campground was busy! There were a lot of people in there this weekend. Pros: lots of activities for kids all day long Kids seemed to have a ball, running and biking through the park Common areas clean. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Site was small - picnic table was partially over firepit when we arrived. Cons This park is...

No fires were allowed in the entire area but I personally saw a large campfire burning. I was told that they had inspected that site and found it not to be a problem. The actual campsites are very poor. I can't believe that KOA lets them use there name. While they have many activities for the kids they do little...

I have never seen a KOA like this before. There are all kinds of things to do. Swimming, games, climbing wall, petting farm. However the tent camping experience is one of the biggest nightmares that i have ever been through. Loud campers throughout the night. Very small tent spaces. They should probably be 3 times as large per site to...

The nicest KOA we have seen, in an ideal location for exploring Wine country and San Francisco. The park is well maintained, has a nice pool and activities for children and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We have a large trailer that was easy to pull in to a nicely treed lot. Highly recommend this location. We looked...

This Campground was a pleasant surprise! We arrived and asked Russ at check in if we could go make sure our site was big enough for our 43' Big Rig w/4 slides. (Our last place in Yosemite put us in a spot w a Tree in the way of 1 slide out, so we had to move). We checked out...

We spent a week here because of a workshop in Petaluma. Here's the good stuff: excellent location, nice trees, very friendly staff, good (but expensive) laundry facilities. Now to why we won't be back. The sites are gravel and dirt. Some are level and some are not. The sewer hookup location is very far back - requires an extra-long hose...
