“Awesome place!”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

I reserved two tent sites for my 7 yr old son to have a bday party. It was the best party he said he had ever had! Between the pool/jacuzzi, petting zoo, movie at the pool, the huge jumpy, rockwall and hayride, I couldn't have planned a better party! All the kids had a blast. Not only that, I could bring my small dog and they have a dog park! Everything was clean and their store is packed with anything you may forget AND it was reasonably priced! I just booked another site for the fourth of july weekend since we had so much fun. I also want to add, the staff was super friendly and very helpful. I've told all my friends about it. Loved it here!!!!

We had an excellent time at the campground. We took the San Francisco tour with John as our tour guide and we were completely satisfied. John was very friendly and made us feel welcomed. We really had a good time and would highly recommend the campground and the tour.

We took the tour into San Francisco right from this campground. Our guide was John. He grew up in SF so was the best possible guide. Perfect way to see the city and not have to drive there. The campground is nice and the staff is helpful. We also took a self guided tour through Sonoma county on their recommendation.

A well run park that really takes care of campers and lodgers well. It is located in the midst of wine country and is lovely and quiet. John, the San Francisco driver/tour guide is the best tour guide that I have encountered on any trip. The city was his back yard while he was growing up and his knowledge was amazing. He loves this city and it shows.

John led us on a professional and very personal tour of San Francisco. We visited places along the way, and he showed us many different vantage points of the San Francisco bridge and other sites. His personal recollections and knowledge of the area and its social/political history made the tour very interesting. We felt safe and comfortable with John's driving skills, navigating around unexpected detours, hills and narrow streets. The interesting and informative 9 hour tour was well paced with stops for exploration and washroom breaks. With pickup and dropoff at the KOA, who could ask for more?

Ok, lets start off by saying yes, in the summer months and on weekends it is packed and there are a lot of kids. But they also have a lot of things for kids to do, jumping pillow, pool, rock wall, petting zoo, banana bikes, hay rides, etc. We have stayed several times in both the cabins and the lodges as well as once in a tent. The sites are pricey and on the high end of the cost, but the kids have a blast and it is always clean. I have never seen the bathroom anything but spotless and all of the staff are super friendly. If you are willing to pay the extra money go for the camping lodge with its own bathroom, kitchen, and bbq...nice upgrade. During the weekend they do have activites for the kids, some free, and some a nominal charge. My kids always ask to go back to this place and I would recommend it for families.

Another highly reccomended KOA campsite. Stopped to for my first visit to San Francisco, lovely site, plenty of room. Very nice professionaly run site, very nice family owned place.Its very handy to visit SF from here, the campsite does a tour, or you can just walk down the road a bit and catch a public bus into Frisco, you have to get up a bit early to that, but worth it to have a full day in the city. The campsite shop has the bus timetables and will advise you of the best buses to catch.Can't fault the campsite at all, will stop there again.
