Petaluma Lake Area Campsites Featured
Nov 20, 2015
We just returned from two nights at Petaluma Coast Guard Station. Once on the base, this website here provided some vague direction that I would like to see clarified a bit. "Proceed down the hill on Colorado Avenue until you get to Missouri Ave where the large propane tank is, on the right where the sign says Lake Recreation Area. Turn right on Missouri Ave." Was fun. Very quiet. Only six spaces and five were occupied. Rarely saw anyone out and about The pads are well spaced out on the circle of the campground. I had a tough time leveling, despite what looked like a pretty level concrete pad. No sewer hook ups. Thirty amp hook ups. The pond is cute, catch n release for the fisherman. Canadian geese have made a mess of the place, watch you step. A little bit of landscape work was going when we were there. Slight smell of cattle, but not that strong. Flies, so be sure you close the door behind you. We used the dining galley on the first evening, $7.70 each. It was good Italian meal. The Coast Guard runs their Food Service Specialist school here, so you are eating the rewards of the students "coasties" good work. They all look so young. There is some sort of agreement with the civilians managing the galley. MWR told us the lunches are the best meals of the day. Missed them. The MWR is located in the "HUB" which was hard to find. Building NEXT to the gym. The hub has a lot going on, ITT office, library, activities, and there is a coffee shop/snack bar on the end. We went to Bodega Bay for the day, 11 miles away. When leaving the base back towards Petaluma, traffic to Southbound Hwy 101 is routed a different way. Pay attention to the signs about 2 miles East of the base. Will go back.
