My husband and I have been coming here since the late 80's - first by ourselves in a tent and then with our children in an RV. There is a reason it keeps on winning the KOA President's Award every year! It is a clean, well-run campground. Loads of stuff for the kids to do, great location to go into... More

We arrived at Petaluma KOA as our travels were taking us to San Francisco. We had come from the Oregon Coast, so we had our trailer and this made sense. I must say that access to this facility from the California 101 (North or South) is pretty easy. Although at present I would pay close attention as they are doing... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our KOA Campground. We appreciate your input. We are giving our staff kudos on the good and reviewing and retraining on the areas that have room for improvement. You are correct, being we are on 70 acres and 312 sites, our sites vary from being in the middle of all the recreational... More

Felt safe enough to let me kids explore on their own and they had a blast. Plenty of family oriented activities and great kids only stuff. Rock wall, bouncy bubble, pool, petting zoo, and farms all within sight. Nightly movies and activities offered as well. Clean bathrooms, showers, and great laundry facility. Although pricey, the general store was conveniently located... More

Yes it was expensive, the most expensive site during our two week camping trip. However, the kids got to climb a rock wall for free, jump in the jumper, pet animals in their petting zoo, swim to their heart's delight, soak in the hot tub, and watch a movie alongside the pool as the stars began to twinkle overhead.

The KOA was what we expected, and our kids loved it. Wish the store had more to grill than just hot dogs and brats, but was grateful they had that. I've said over and over again how great an investment tours are. We had to cut San Francisco from our own itinerary, so were thrilled that KOA offered a day... More

They pack them in at this KOA and charge a hefty price ($89/night) for an RV park 50+ miles from San Francisco. The good: Paved roads, paved pull through sites, pool and hot tub, rec hall with bike rentals and games for the kids, restrooms and showers are reasonably clean. Easy on/off of the 101 Freeway. Friendly staff. The bad:... More

This was my first time camping at a KOA and my first time to the Petaluma area. I enjoyed both. The KOA is expensive, but I look at it as though I was paying a resort fee at a hotel. I am getting my trailer site as well as many amenities - pool, playground, bounce pillow, rec hall, farm animals,... More

I wish I could have given this KOA more stars, because they really do try. They need to work on a few details that drop the ratings though. This is definitely a family place, so expect to see children everywhere. It was great for us, because we came with our kids. For just adults, this might not be an ideal... More

As the price for tent camping was at $67 dollars a night I was expecting this to be an impressive koa, however it smelled like cows as we were right by a pasture, the site was not very pretty with minimal tree coverage, and my shower only stayed hot for the first 3-5 minutes. If you are an adult hoping... More
