Just barely OK for an overnight stay. Narrow roads with parked vehicles making them narrower. On my pull through, I had to back out because of a narrow way out.

Very nice camp site with lots of shade. It would be nice if there are more activity like other locations of KOA.

I loved the camp ground and the staff were all very nice, I'm extreamly disappointed that the website made it sound like if you stayed Friday night 5/11 that sat night 5/12 was only $20.00, that was not the case so I'm upset about that but loved everything else! Definitely enjoyable!

We were fortunate enough to get Site #88, near the pond, and with trees surrounding it, the site felt very private. KOA Shingle Springs is only about 30 minutes from my home and this particular KOA is now my "home away from home." We had a great time!

Brief but pleasant. We were in a nice, roomy site. Nice to see they are making improvements.

Love KOA exceptt: I was in desperate need of having a document signed which required printing first. I went up to the office and asked the desk attendant (Quinn) if that was possible and he agreed so I let him know I would email the form I needed printing. He wrote down the KOA email address for me. When I went to retrieve the printed form, there was a note on it stating "Space 37 didn't ask....."

We had a very good time, it’s very clean and the staff are nice and helpful with anything you need. There’s a lot of activity to keep the little ones busy, swimming, fishing, and a nice playground. We will definitely recommend it to family and friends.

It was nice and smooth workers are really nice and very helpfull just wish there’s more thing to do like a trail to hike or bike on

Basically the fact that the freeway is right next to the site forced us to pick up and leave after one night even though I had already paid for three. I am sure for people on long roadtrips who just need a place to crash might like it? Or it looked like a place to "live" if you worked nearby. Not sure who would want to stay here other than those two types honestly.

We had fun, lots of stuff for kids

Fantastic customer service. Decent tent site. And the amenities were always clean
May 14, 2018
Great campsite and even better staff! We will be back.

We went for a two night stay and it was fantastic.

Such a beautiful get away, feels likes so far, yet so close to home. Clean, lovely staff, and beautiful surroundings! Great for relaxing or as home base to wine tasting and other adventures! We brought our travel trailer but there were also beautiful tent sites as well as rustic cabins! We will be back!

Nice campground with amenities, but too expensive.
May 12, 2018
Clean. Nice large level site. Convenient to local sights. Easy to find, right off the highway.
May 11, 2018
Was everything we wanted and needed. Very clean, helpful and friendly staff. We will be back when in that area again.

Placerville KOA is probably the best KOA we have ever stayed in. Our kids came up from San Jacinto and joined us for the time we were there. We plan on doing it again next year. We are from above Spokane Washington.

Loved the place, wish we could have stayed longer.

Quiet, very clean, friendly, great location, and a great place for kids. We will be back with the grandkids.

Great place to stay and explore Gold country.

Very clean and well organized. Lots of activities including a movie night under a tent. I really enjoyed everything about our stay except being charged $2.00 for a visitor’s pass so my aunt could stop by and say hello. Obviously it’s not the money. It just seems a bit trifling.

Relaxed, as usual.
May 08, 2018
Staff was very friendly and professional. Grounds were clean and neat, pool and playground were clean. Everyone in our group had a nice time. I heard no complaints about the campground from anyone I was with. I will definitely recommend this Koa to my friends, and personally would not hesitate to stay her again.

Only here over night, but found our stay accommodating and comfortable. Noise from a nearby highway was a bit annoying, Overall we were satisfied. Entire campground appeared well kept and orderly. Would stay here again maybe in a spot a little further from the highway.

We were separated from our group, even though two spaces were open across from them, because they were designated long term. They were not filled on the weekend. The price is too high. I can stay in a motel for $10.00 more and get breakfast and happy hour drink. Plus I would save my back. Sorry.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You were in 44. The spaces you wanted were 41 and 42. Since your group was on the adjacent row it's really not far from them. Your reservation wasn't even reserved as a "group". I kindly tried to explain why we can't put you in those sites numerous times but you wouldn't listen to reason AT ALL. If you feel a hotel is better for you then we completely understand. Sorry we couldn't please you...

Was way to expensive, the prices were raised just for the weekend.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hi, thank you for staying with us. Our pricing calendar is programmed into KOA's system in December/January for the entire year. Just like hotels or any other accommodations business we have higher rates at peak times for our park which is determined by looking at our historical data. Or the opposite we have lower rates at the slowest of times. I do hope you enjoyed our park otherwise. Thanks

Clean, well maintained, lots to do, lovely sites, great staff

Just one suggestion: Trash receptacles throughout the park need to be bigger or emptied more often. There was not once when we went to the nearest cans when they weren’t full and people were piling trash on the ground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for camping with us. I appreciate your feedback. We dump trash cans daily and in summer often twice per day on weekends. It appears we have room for improvement though based on your feedback. We might be able to add more cans to limit the possibility of this happening. Thanks and we hope to see you again! - J

Nice quiet park, close to the wineries of Apple Hill, Pleasant Valley and Fair Play. However, did not appreciate the price gouging on Passport Weekend. $80 a night for a KOA? Really?

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for staying with us & the great rating! Our pricing calendar is programmed into KOA's system in Dec/Jan for the entire year.

We had such a pleasant time in Placerville and the grounds were incredible and very peaceful and relaxing... Loved having the hot chocolate chip cookies when we checked in. I highly recommend this KOA �

clean, very helpful staff. friendly and hospitable. the movie was a little too mature for my 4 year old granddaughter; when my daughter in law went to pick up a lighter movie to lesson the impact they gave her the movie free of charge.having duckted heating in the movie tent along with complementary popcorn and cookies was very much appreciated.we had noisy neighbors, taken care of immediately.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was our pleasure to have you. You're family was very kind and enjoyable to have at the park. We also appreciate your recognition of our response time when an issue arose :) Thanks and we hope to see you again!
