Tons of activities for kids at the camp itself. There's a petting zoo on site and surrounded by cows and donkeys. It's also close to both wine country and SF. My family specifically goes to this for the tour with John. For $80 a person, a koa bus hooks you up on an all day tour in the city, complete... More

Easy access from 101, friendly staff, quick check in then off to our site. Previously we have always had a spot to the left of the gate close to the laundry there but this time we were close to the office and the pool in a nice shaded site. Not that the other sites are bad they just have no... More

They do not enforce quiet time or playgroud hours....kids screaming at all hours, woke up at 6am to screaming kids. No privacy between sites. Bathrooms were nice shower clean. They had a nice pool (didn't use). And a nice store for those oops I forgot stuff.

My family and I have been traveling across the country in our rv for about 6 weeks. We have truly enjoyed all of the places we have stayed until now. Maybe our expectations were high. We had gotten the kids ( 9, 12, and 14) all excited about the bouncy pillow thing, petting farm, movies, big pool, game room, and... More

Good place to entertain kids wIth many activities. Bathroom showers very small. Camping kitchen not in great shape, but usable. Campsites are quite close together with little privacy or quiet afforded.

Enjoyed the limelight. The weather was fabulous and the hospitality was just as fab! We enjoyed San Fransico much we had to visit again! This time we went to the beach area it was lovely. You must see the Bridge!

We stayed here on the way to the Redwood National Park. It was kind of a practice camping trip and this place was great. Yes yes, it did have a manure smell at first. But honestly, coming from the city I actually felt good about those cows and donkeys in the pasture next to us. The Kampground has some great... More

This is a great KOA, whether you have children or don't. We had no children with our party but there is tons of activities for kids The best part of the KOA is the city tour they offer to san Francisco. Our driver John was by FAR the best tour guide I have ever had. He knew tremendous amount of... More

This KOA has a great pool yard, a fun kids play area with a blow up bouncer, jumbo tricycles for rent, and more. Camp cabins are a nice option, though very basic, if you are like me and don't tent "camp." Great spot to take your family for some fun.

First - the good stuff. Great location, plenty for families to do right on site with a petting zoo, pool, kids playground and an excellent dog park! Now the OK stuff - we were there from a Thursday to Monday in mid May, before the camping season really gets going - and it was super busy, people "sort of" respected... More
