Placerville KOA Journey Recreation
Our campground is loaded with activities to keep the family entertained during your entire stay with us! Along with our standard attractions we offer additional planned activities on the major weekends and most busy weekends in the summer. Call a couple weeks ahead for a schedule and don't be surprised if we add last minute unscheduled family activities based on the number of families in our park on any given weekend.
Swimming Pool & Hot Tub
Relax and enjoy the day at our clean swimming pool! We have a nice grassy lawn, chairs, and some beautiful new Polywood chaise lounge chairs available for your maximum comfort. The swimming pool is maintained and open 365 days a year except during winter storms. It is not heated so we only advertise being open May-Sept.
The cozy hot tub is heated to 102 degrees and open daily as well except during winter storms. 5 years old and younger are not allowed.
Nothing says "camping fun" more then challenging your family or friends to a classic game of horseshoes! Open year round & free.
We offer movie nights in two fun flavors! On most Friday & Saturday nights in the summer we set the ambiance for our guests by enjoying a movies poolside under the stars! Once it's too cold or the rain comes in for the winter we host the movie in our heated large outdoor tent (rec hall)! Our screen is 12 feet and we typically hand out free popcorn and other goodies for our guests enjoying the film in support of KOA Care Camps. Donations warmly welcomed but never required.
We offer movies ranging from the years biggest blockbusters to your favorite classics! Some nights by the pool we bring out a firepit to keep your hands warm or for marshmallow roasting. Just don't forget to bring your own chairs or blankets to guarantee maximum comfort for your family. Ice cream, sodas, and other snacks available in the store.
Again, this is a FREE activity and the selected movies are usually announced the day of.
