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

This was an overall awesome campground for our family. It's about an hour drive to San Francisco, so close enough to visit but definitely outside the city rush. The campground has many activities for kids, especially on the weekends. We stayed on a premium campsite and enjoyed the extra space and chairs and swing that were provided. We would definitely...

This was the nicest KOA we have stated in. Great location, great staff that was truly committed to making your stay great. Good advice in office, propane refills, clean laundry spotless washrooms and showers. This was close to lots of wineries, redwoods, San francisco, the coast. Just down the road from the Peanuts museum too. Awesome.... we will be back

Thank you for staying with us. We are very blessed to not only have a ton of things to do on our camping resort but to also be located in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Many people are shocked when I tell them they will need additional days so they can experience all of the great things... More

Pros: *clean *friendly staff *many amenities (especially for families with children/dogs) *lovely grounds *good price Cons: *stove top drip pans were covered in tin foil and did not work. When we put in a work order, they put a crooked hotplate in... More

Stayed in a deluxe cabin for two nights. We asked for a quiet cabin and got one furthest away from the playground & for the most part it was very quiet. This is a place for families & kids - it's really NOT camping. There we a series of available kids activities (although much more limited on weekdays): the pool... More

Our 4 kids, ages 5-12 LOVED this site! The jumping pillow, pool, park and road for scooters was all it took to keep them busy and happy! Sites were nice, not too close together, quiet enough! Highly recommend this RV Park if you are hoping to explore the San Fran area!

well, we made arrangements to stay a few months(reasonable price),never told that the rates increases "double" after April, We felt the staff was deceptive about the actual costs and terms of extended-stay,We found this distasteful and unprofessional, specially after they make you go thru an interview just to approved if you can stay as a long term, shame of them,...

This place is like an amusement park with camping on the side! I have never seen a KOA with so much to do. They had a giant bounce house, a huge pool, a nighttime movie, a petting zoo, rock climbing, and that's just what I could see from my camping spot. Definitely a lot of bang for your buck if... More

I took a solo road trip in August 2013 and stayed at this KOA. I needed a place for one night to pitch my tent and be on the road in the morning. Well, the tent site was next to a fence that separated the cow pasture from my site. I like cows and after all, this is the country.... More
