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.

My first time to a KOA. I was impressed. Lots of stuff for the kids to do. They loved it and wanted to stay longer. Hopefully all KOAs are like this. Friendly staff. Clean laundry. Great price for overnight. fishing, mini golf, horse shoes, swimming, volleyball, play ground, 2 enclosed dog areas, farm animals for kids to see, and I am sure more. Almost all lots had some type of shade, most had full shade. Nice pull through at same price. Friendly people staying there. No junky permanents! Park clean and well run. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice park, pretty typical KOA. Good power, water, nice swimming pool. The only reason for the lower rating is I think it's a little overpriced. But, if you need to stay in this area, about the only game in town. Nice shady pull through sites are a plus. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good KOA ($) campground, family orientated with lots to do. The Pool was open, playground, fishing pond, miniature golf, petting animals. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked fine. Sites were gravel/grass with a picnic table and BBQ. Only fires allowed are duraflame in the area fire pit. Showers and restrooms were clean. Biggest drawback is that Hwy-50 is close so you get the noise. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Well-maintained park with very clean restrooms and showers. Family-friendly with a nice playground, mini-golf, pool (was closed for the season) and more. The only drawback is noise from nearby I-50, so if you're sensitive to it you should ask to get a site as far away from the highway as possible. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Tent Trailer.

We arrived here after the office had closed and was using the night registration when a staff member came to assist. He was very friendly and helpful. Our site was not very level, difficult to get into because of the angle--but it was roomy. We did not use Wi-Fi, the pool, or other amenities. The showers were individual, private rooms, with good consistent water pressure and temperature. Restrooms were clean. Campground had a pleasing appearance, with fishing pond, playground, and pool. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Nice, well-maintained campground with a variety of sites. We had a "premium" pull-through site with trees shading our site and decent amount of lawn around us. The "regular" pull-through and back-in sites looked very crowded. Even driving past them was iffy as many had to park their tow vehicles in the roadway since the sites are too small. Nice looking pool, kids playground, small stocked fishing pond and a petting zoo: families would enjoy this as a destination. Wi-Fi was OK from our site but I can see how trees would block some areas. Our (gravel) site was perfectly level, but I can see how not all would be. The best sites for views and privacy are back-in sites along the back overlooking a valley, unfortunately those don't have sewer, only w/e. We'd definitely go back for the "natural" feel and the very friendly and helpful staff. Don't come here if you prefer a flat, concrete pad with no trees. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

It is pricey. The wifi didn't work. The cable was ok, but had too few channels. There are nice grounds..all gravel. There is grass at sites with picnic tables. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

Good destination RV park for kids. Sites were dirt/gravel, need some leveling, picnic table. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked good. Constant highway noise, and the park is very tight to drive around. Great playground, miniature golf, swimming pool (seasonal), well stocked store. About 3-miles from Red Hawk Casino. Quite a few permanents, but entire park was clean and well managed. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has had mixed reviews and some of this is because its has a somewhat hilly, well treed location rather than a flat paved RV park. In addition, many of the pull through sites are close together and the back-in sites along the back, are up the side of a hill and while the driveways are level, the adjacent grass areas are not. The park is relatively long and narrow along the side of the highway so road noise affects most sites. On the other hand, the park tries hard to provide a vacation experience and some people really like this. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.

This is the first KOA that we have stayed in that really wasn’t impressive. Sites are really close together although they did have 50amp service. The pool and hot tub were closed but there was no discount in rates because of it. Playground was just ok. Many of the spaces, about 30, have been turned in to RV storage which detracted from the camp esthetics. Mini golf course was clean and seemed to be kept in good condition; the turf looked to be recently replaced. However the $3.00 per person, per game seemed pricy to me. Petting barn was a couple of goats in a pen which you wouldn’t want to pet. The fishing pond was not well kept and did not encourage fishing. Also, they restricted fishing to start at 9:00 am which any fisherman knows is too late!! Camp fires were not allowed and you were restricted to using BBQ’s only. There were group fire rings but they were all located in the “RV storage” spaces too far from most of the usable sites. I can’t comment on the restrooms because I never used them although the wife said they were clean. Sewer system is on a septic tank and we were warned not to dump unless absolutely necessary because they were at the maximum capacity. Strange given we stayed during the winter season and the camp was only at 50% capacity. The price was excessive for this campground. I won't be returning to this KOA. We camped at Placerville KOA in a Motorhome.
