Nice trees, secluded, nice people. The price high considering the sites, jacuzzi needs work, and the pool cold. But it was fine for a quick overnight stay.

It served the need for location only. Sadly Placerville KOA needs help. Run down and in need of a major overhaul. Money problems, poor management, who knows. What potential to be really good. There must be a hidden problem to be in such bad shape. I brought a rundown airport back to profitable life, a campground should be easy with the right people and financing. I know it could improve.

The staff here is terrific And the views are unbeatable! Great Dog park and nearby Folsom is a really neat place.

We only stayed one night but we thoroughly enjoyed the 24/7 available showers and had a very quiet and spacious spot for our large tent. The facility appeared clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to another stay as needed.

We came here before and enjoyed ourselves so much we brought my mom and dad for my Dad’s 90th. We stayed in our trailer and rented them a cabin. They were in 103 and we were in site 121. Nice close proximity. We all had the best time! We will be back again!

The staff were friendly and helpful, and there are so many fun things to do. Our grandkids had a blast, and so did we! Thank you for a great stay, I must mention the new dog park that you put in! It was great, and our dogs had so much fun running in the fenced grassy area!

The campground was well kept and they had one of the cleanest Porto potties I have ever used. It's a great family place. They have wonderful free amenities like mini golf, pool, jacuzzi, free g rated movies on Friday and Saturday night. Will definitely stay again. Only drawback is that it is next to freeway, but nothing a pair of earplugs won't fix.

Clean resort, friendly staff. Pet friendly. Great place to get away for the weekend. However The RV sites are too pricey. Would come back if they reduced the nightly fee, but overall it was a nice weekend.

Thank you for staying with us and all the nice comments! For cheaper rates I recommend checking our weekday pricing as well as pricing Dec-March. During summer or Apple Hill season we don't anticipate cheaper prices but we are working hard to bring you even more value & fun for what you are paying. Hope to see you again soon :) - J

Great staff but didn’t care for the marijuana odor in my the camp store when I registered

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hi! Im so sorry! I can 100% assure you that we were aware of the smell, located the source, and it WAS NOT STAFF related. My sincere apologies for this poor introduction into our park. That is not ordinary AT ALL. I hope youll give us another opportunity to exceed your expectations. That is so important to us! - J

AWESOME staff. Peaceful setting.

ALL the laundry equipment was working--first time ever being in a campground laundry (KOA or other) where all of the machines were operational. Staff was friendly. Owner was very nice and helpful. Staff was always around the campground working. Only concern is there were a lot of thorns and stickers on the ground that our dogs got in their paws.

There was a lot to do, I wish we would have had more time to take advantage of everything that was there.

I think the staff honestly tries their best to make it a good experience but there is nothing you can do to change the location.For me it is just too close to the Hwy.The dog area is great,the pool area&playground is nice.Not much for teens.The goat area is SAD,tiny area,dirt only,they cant run/climb &looks like months worth of poop on the ground!Stayed here to sleep, for Apple hill trip.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us! We re-cleaned the goat pen thoroughly based on your feedback. The goats love climbing up their ladder/house and have enough room to run. They get attention 24/7, they are happy. Most teens enjoy our mini-golf, banana bikes, arcade, ping-pong, foozball, jacuzzi, pool, movie nights, waterslide, fishing (seasonal), horseshoes, wifi, etc but we WILL keep adding for sure :)

Way too expensive. 57$ per night for a Tentsite w/out water or electricity is too much.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for camping with us. There is water at the site you had. We appreciate the feedback. Next time I recommend reserving earlier so you can get into our normal tent sites or the elect ones on cabin hill. They are much nicer then the overflow tent site where you were located. Please keep in mind that the prices of sites are based on amenities available to you not just the site itself. - J

We enjoyed our stay as the location fit our needs nicely. Upgrades from our last stay in 2016 make it a definite stop on our next trip to the area. Now, if they could just get some rain to hold down the dust level.

Best wifi I have seen at any campground. the place was clean with helpful people.

More expensive than any other Koa we stayed at, campsites close together and noisy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us! KOA's in California are typically more expensive then most other states as is everything else. Next time I recommend reserving early and requesting a site that would suite you better. Site 20 and 88 have a little more room and perhaps quieter then other sites in the park. 15/16 are in the oaks with very large picnic areas and distance between guests. - J

Clean, spacious property. On-site is very hospitable. Professional, courteous with added ingredient of caring. I am grateful for a safe charming spot.

I loved the relaxing environment of the place. Need more activities though. Like fishing for the kids. A better biking area. Cabins are cute.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Enjoyed having your family and thank you for the feedback! We will continue adding activities each year :) Catch and release catfish fishing was available while you were here. The island is closed to fishing due to the water being so low but we have opened up the back side of the pond near the entrance for everyone to enjoy fishing :) Thanks - J

Spaces not big enough people parking vehicles in your lanes to get out people leaving their tow out in drive sewer line not compatible with other hookups not very clean. Had to wake up neighbor to move vehicle so we could get out. If they made their rounds they would have seen the vehicles in the way was not happy with this at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us... I'm not sure what you mean by "sewer line not compatible with other hookups". I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. We will work hard to improve based on your feedback. - J

Unfortunately we stayed for one night only. But it was Saturday night so we could join the movie night at the pool, which was a really nice experience. So was the seasonally offered breakfast on Sunday morning. The smell of fresh pancakes, sausages and bacon was all over the campground! You Seouls not miss it! Everything was clean and Very well taken care of.

Excelent service, very clean pool, very nice playground, cute goats, clean facilities, close to many local atractions...very close to the freeway which could be both good or bad... depending on you.
