This is a great value if you are an Elks member. Other parks in the area charge outlandish prices. It is a parking lot setup but very well done with full hookups. Manager is very helpful. Sites 1-8 have a grassy area behind the rig and are easier to get into. Backing into sites 9 through 14 are a bit difficult but doable. Sites 15 and up are easier. Great location for seeing all that the area has to offer. Make sure to see downtown Petaluma and drive our D street to visit the Marin Cheese company out in the country. Plenty of parking for your tow vehicle in the parking lot. We camped at Elks Lodge #901 (Elks only) in a Fifth Wheel.

An Elks only park that has great website reservation system. Park is big rig friendly with full hookups on a paved parking lot. Will definitely return as area is quiet, convenient, clean and friendly, helpful host even though in an industrial area. We camped at Elks Lodge #901 (Elks only) in a Motorhome.

This was an "any port in a storm" situation for us. It was a holiday weekend, Labor Day, so many of the parks are full and this was our only option. Because it was a holiday weekend, the lodge was not open. The lodge has minimal hours even when it is open.

The sites are far from level, we had to use all of our shoring boards and still only got it "sort of" level. Barely level enough to put out the slides. Our slides and canopy were almost touching our neighbors.' There was plenty of shady parking for the Jeep and the lodge is situated close to amenities such as grocery stores and gas stations. We'd stay here again if we were desperate but not otherwise. We camped at Elks Lodge #901 (Elks only) in a Motorhome.

Sonoma Racetrack is about 10 miles away. Indy cars race there occasionally. Petaluma Historic District is very interesting.

This park is mostly just a parking lot. It is very tight, but most Elks RV parking is that way. Great place for an overnight stay or for a couple of days to see the area. Little grassy area behind sites 1-8. We camped at Elks Lodge #901 (Elks only) in a Fifth Wheel.

For Elks Lodge members only in good standing. Reservations required.

Very nice park with 18 FHU-50 on asphalt. Jack pads are required and may need blocks for front stops are on slight slope.

No bad reviews, just go elsewhere. We camped at Elks Lodge #901 (Elks only) in a Motorhome.

This is probably our 4th stay at Petaluma Elks, and we would not consider any other park in this area. Park manager is very attentive and goes out of her way to make you comfortable and enhance your stay. There are very few trees, but there is a nice grassy area behind some sites. Lodge is friendly and there are many activities available. Local attractions include cheese and wine outlets and the famous Petaluma Creamery for wonderful ice cream. Close to freeway for visits to Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Sonoma and other quaint towns. We camped at Elks Lodge #901 (Elks only) in a Motorhome.

Cucina Paradiso Italian dinner house downtown Petaluma serves a wonderful lunch or dinner in a nice atmosphere.

Be sure to try the Petaluma Creamery for the best ice cream in the area plus specialty cheeses.

Highway noise is quite noticeable. Lots of bright security lighting even though the neighborhood is a business park and very safe. Narrow spaces ~15' wide. Good voltage and water pressure. Basically a parking lot behind club. There are many activities and they will park right in your campsite on Bingo night. Wi-Fi in the lodge. It was easy to make reservations online, but a surprise that they were needed. We camped at Elks Lodge #901 (Elks only) in a Motorhome.

All 18 sites now have 50amp. It's parking lot camping. Wi-Fi is still weak. Lots of big rigs. Plenty of TV without cable. The lodge is friendly. Soon they will have advance reservations, but at this time you have to call same day to get a space. Its close to freeways, but quiet at night. The location is outstanding (close to cool places) and thats why I rated it a 7. We stayed 3 nights in our new 40' bus, and it was full every night. We camped at Elks Lodge #901 (Elks only) in a Motorhome.

Adequate parking lot camping. Full hookups. All back-ins, good width. But all sites slope to front of RV, difficult to level. Wi-Fi very weak and slow. Fresh water tastes odd. Some dry camping allowed (for fee) if hookups site not available. We camped at Elks Lodge #901 (Elks only) in a Motorhome.
