Lots of dirt and leaves. Had to bathe my dog twice in the three day here. No policing of dog poop. It was everywhere and some of it looked more like horse poop. After one night we could not get WiFi. Pool was full of kids and looked like the stuff kids leave behind. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown Placerville (Hangtown) was very quaint with lots of history. Nice Casino nearby (if you are into that sort of thing). Shoping also fairly convenient but you need a car to get there. This park could be a really nice park if the roads and pads were kept up and a little grass planted (and watered) to help keep the dust down.

Maneuvering was not good for big rig. Bushes hit side of rig on narrow road. Had to back out of our site because of large oak branches blocking forward right turn. Utilities a mess surrounded by needless railroad ties that were just in the way. The Park became very busy on the week end. Wi fi non existent. The mother lode environment was nice, but it quickly becomes just dusty with burrs. We will not return. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

For a KOA, I was disappointed. The sites were not manicured at all. In some cases, weeds were a foot tall. The unkempt blacktop streets had Bermuda grass growing in on the edges. This park would be ok in a pinch, but only for a limited stay.

When my reservation was made, I spoke with one gentleman. When we checked in, things were handled by another gentleman who was somewhat friendly. The man I spoke with for the reservation was there also, but when I spoke to him, there was no acknowledgment at all. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

After reading previous reviews we were a little concerned about our stay but found none of the issues of previous reviews. We found it easily and staff was helpful & courteous. The location is very convenient. The spot was pretty level but a bit tight - because the sites are smaller those with trucks/cars often are parking in the road. Lots of trees but none seemed in the way. The wifi worked great. The pool & hot tub were not open yet. Lovely pond with ducks and geese - a horse farm nearby - very nice ambiance. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

I'm writing this review without the "free" WiFi, because it is so slow I can only barely load my email. This page times out whenever I try to post my review; this is my third try, tethered to my iPhone this time. We requested one of their new "big rig" sites with 50 AMPS. These sites are all directly next to the freeway, and unbelievably, have no sewer hook-up. The quiet loop up behind the office is almost completely full of full-timers. The cable features 6 completely un-viewable stations. Their own handout states "If you're real fortunate, in the right space, and it's working right, you can watch our homemade cable." I can only assume that the cable is pirated from this claim of "homemade". Coming from the West, the highway sign reads "KOA", then in small letters, "Second Exit". This is the first time I've seen a highway service sign before an exit refer to a service that is at the following exit. I exited at the sign, and got hopelessly lost on narrow winding two-lane roads in the hills for an hour. Fun. The only compelling reason I can see to stay here is if you have no other option. The fee of $54, with KOA discount, for a loud site with no sewer seems excessive to me. The manager is, however, very friendly. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed three nights at this park. At check in the employee was very pleasant and professional and the store appears well stocked. Our space was a pull thru with water and electric only. When we stayed here several years ago we were told that most of these sights would be getting sewer hook ups soon. Apparently hasn't happened yet. I also felt that the space was overpriced given the lack of sewer facilities.

We used the free shuttle to get to and from the Red Hawk Casino and found it to be ver convenient. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this highly overpriced KOA park for one week. Everything looks run down. The hot tub is only turned on for the weekend and then not cleaned daily and had no jets operating well. The pool is cleaned and refilled for the weekend. It is unheated. The Wifi is terrible. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

Friendly office staff (owners), well-maintained campground, mature trees. Little space between RV sites, but adequate. Burr clover everywhere - dog left with a dozen "burrs" in his tail. Not a good campground choice for disabled campers - restroom access from even the closest campsites very difficult. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

We got a W&E site for our $50 and used the dump station when we departed. Fishing fee was $12.50. They have huge catfish, trout, and perch. Miniature golf, playground, WiFi and cable TV worked fine. We didn't hear the freeway at night. Friendly staff. Swimming pool was fun, but not heated. Small store is you need supplies. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground, very friendly hosts. Miniature golf, petting zoo and events available. My only dislikes are the sites are very close together and the dump station has an incline, so I could not fully empty my rear gray water tank. 1/3 left. Located in Shingle Springs, close to Sacramento, Placerville and Apple Hill. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Park staff were friendly and helpful. Due to the drought, most of the grass was dry or dead except around the pool. The pool water was not clear and there was a lot of debris in the pool as if it hadn't been cleaned in a while. The dog area was small, but was ok for our small dog. She liked the goats. I would stay again. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

This park is actually located in Shingle Springs, just a few miles from Placerville. It is also situated right on Highway 50. However, after you are in camp, for a bit, you don't notice the traffic noise and this time of year it was minimal. We loved the grass, trees and multitude of birds. The owners are super nice and keep the park well maintained. There are not many RV parks in the area and the more popular one, about 20 miles away, is quite a bit more expensive, so this KOA is actually reasonable. We enjoyed our weekend stay very much and having the buffet next door at the casino was a nice bonus. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

Not big rig frIendly. Stayed at this park twice, once before and once after their “big rig” area addition. Will not stay a third time. Interior roads in old section are narrow with sharp curves. Sites are narrow and difficult to get into with lots of unkempt landscaping. New Big Rig section has same narrow roads with sharp curves. Vegetation has not yet grown to full height. Big rig sites were very long but so narrow that with all slides out, I could not get to patio area without pushing trees aside or stooping under. No lights here, so needed flashlights to get from car to coach when returning after dark. Big rig area is water and electric only, no sewer. I asked about a dump station and was shown location on a map, but was told I needed to circumvent the entire old park road to get into “proper position” to use dump station. Not willing to go onto old roads again with large coach so didn’t dump. Big rig area is directly adjacent to the freeway so noise is high and constant, especially at 6 AM or later when commuters are heading for work in Sacramento. This park has an excellent location but is suited for smaller rigs and short stays. Cost for big rig site, without sewer was $55 with KOA discount, which seemed very out of line with park. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.
