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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We stayed here with 3 of our grand kids who had a great time with all the things to do. The days are packed with fun activities for everyone! Some activities have a cost but most don't. Park is huge and clean. Every staff we encountered was very friendly. We will definitely go back again.

Made a reservation here for 8/1/15-8/7/15. When making reservations, told them we had a dog that is a Cane Corso. They said it was fine, no problem. After driving 2 hours to get there and after 4 hours of setting everything up, campground manager comes by to tell us we have to leave because of the dog. He was on... More

This RV Park was busy with families and looked like so much fun. We stayed overnight. Our camp spot was a pull through, level site. Set up was easy knowing we didn't have to waste time with uneven ground. All the sites had plenty of shade. Our electric and water and sewer connections were well maintained and clean. The roads...

We went to this rv park in july 2015 with the kids and they liked it a lot because of the big pool, the bouncing pillow and the night movie. The only thing is that there was always a smell of cows and/or sewer. CampSites were large and people helpful.

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
