We found this park to be very nice. To respond to some of the earlier criticisms, there are lots of trees, but appear to be well trimmed--we had no problem with trees scraping our fifth wheel and there were lots of big rigs staying here. The sites are shady and of ample room. We didn't feel like we were looking into the unit next to us. The sewer hookups were very new looking pvc type openings that our hose fit in perfectly. It's a beautiful, rural park that is a destination RV resort, chock-full of activities, including sheep and goats in a petting zoo, a pool, a great rec room, nightly movies, etc. None of that mattered to us since we were there to sightsee, but may account for the expensive rates. That, along with the cost of CA real estate, of course. We haven't found any bargains anywhere in California! There were lots of children here so if you're an isolationist, stay at a state park. We were not bothered by noise and enjoyed being awakened by birdsong every morning. Cable TV is included in the rates and we had GREAT free wi-fi. Typical of KOAs, it's got lots of workampers so you never know what the staff might be like, but we found them all to be helpful. It's a great park and we would stay here again. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Pool closed too early, wifi & cable worked well. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Motorhome.

If you like the never-ending smell of fresh cow manure (this place is downwind from a large dairy), sites that are not level and lack of basic WiFi service near the high-tech capital of the world, this is the place for you. Over-priced for a rather mediocre facility. Unfortunately, the choices in the San Francisco Bay Area are rather limited and this is the best of the lot. We stay there because of necessity, not choice, during our periodic trips to SF. Grin and bear it and look forward to moving on in a few days. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Travel Trailer.

KOA is quite proud of this campground and charged us $54.88 for one nights stay. The only game in town and they knew it. We were also rewarded with the foulest barnyard odor we have ever had to camp with. From the time we first arrived and opened the truck door until we left the stench was overwhelming. Ahh, the joys of camping downwind from the cattle barns and feedlots. The sites were on dirt and gravel. The trees, as previously mentioned, were trimmed back so they are not a problem if you are observant. The sewer hookups were old rusted pipe. The threads were gone so proper connections were not possible. To enter the campground after you register, you must go through a gate controlled by a keypad. This was very inconvenient and impossible to work from inside your RV. All in all, not a pleasant experience. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park close to San Francisco and wine country. The staff was very friendly. Some of the sites are close together but there are trees and grass as well as firepits. The campground is hilly and some sites are up the hill. The sites are surrounded by kamping kabins. There is a large room for groups. There are farm animals on the premises. We did not notice traffic noise. The only problem we had was knowing where to stop for registration. The signage isn't good. There is a security gate and you must have a code to get into the sites. You cannot reach the device to punch in the code from inside a motorhome. However, the gate doesn't go down until you drive through. I understand it can get rather noisy on holiday weekends because of all the kabins and extra people there. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Motorhome.
