You'll think you've struck gold when you discover the Placerville KOA - and you have! Located in the glorious Sierra foothills between Sacramento and South Lake Tahoe, it's a terrific launching pad for trips to California's Gold Country, the American River, wineries, Apple Hill, Old Town Sacramento and the Red Hawk Casino. Take a world - famous whitewater rafting trip down the American River for a day you'll never forget. Visit the area's fine wineries or plentiful apple orchards with handmade crafts, pies and pastries. When you're hot and tired, relax in KOA's refreshing pool (in-season), or take the free on-call shuttle to Red Hawk Casino next door for a delicious buffet. Sunday mornings in the summer, KOA serves a fabulous breakfast. Before you leave, be sure to pamper the adorable miniature goats in the petting zoo. Check out the new, larger dog park for your four-legged buddies! Pool: May 1 - September 30. Max pull thru: 121 feet. Your hosts: John & Cindy Simoneau and family.
