Campground Reviews

Mar 26, 2023
We stayed 3/22 - 3/25. We come here every year in March. It was nice to see that they have done a lot of improvements around the campsite since last year. All new wood railing around the lake looks like a new bridge to get to the lake. The dog park has a new fence around it and other improvements. There was some fun games to play inside the big tent especially when it was raining out. James J

Chrissy was very helpful from our late check-in to departure. There is a lot of room between spaces. Nice and quiet!

A little to pricey

Great hosts! Fantastic campground with lots of activities to keep the kids busy. Only thing keeping this from a 5 star rating is the closeness to the freeway where you can hear the traffic.

This is a KOA that makes you feel like you’re camping again! Nice park with trees, pool and pond, and great staff!

Placerville KOA was beautiful, had a pond, where we seen a turtle, there were geese and ducks. The staff were very nice friendly and helpful! The facilities were very nice very clean. Nicely stocked store. Loved the goats, my granddaughter named them and we fed them cut up carrots. I would love to see a better area for the goats, but I’m an animal lover. Over all this place is awesome!

Location was close to many activities to allow us to venture out. Thanks for being a part of our 43 rd anniversary.

Everyone at Placerville KOA was great, but it’s too close to the freeway. We only stayed because Colorado Adventures was less than truthful as to the conditions at Ghost Mountain Ranch, no power, no site, no water. Thank you KOA for being there so we didn’t have to drive Al the way back home.

A bit pricey but a nice, clean and well maintained park overall. Sites are average to small . Also somewhat noisy due to the close proximity to Hwy 50.

They are really making improvements!!!

Always love coming here. The staff are so nice and helpful. So close to many activities also. We come several times a year.

Campgrounds and bathrooms were very clean and staff was friendly. I really appreciated the text messages alerting me to upcoming activities. We will definitely come back.

Staff was great and hardworking! KOA is lucky to have someone like Tom who dedicates so much to this site! Our children loved all the activities!

We had a great time with our almost four-year-old grandson. So many fun things to do. And the park was very well maintained. We will be back!

Your location is your main reason for 1 star. Freeway traffic noise is unbearable.

I'm very pleased staying here at the KOA... Great staff!

Great people and super clean! Hosts Krissy and Tom went way over and above to make sure our grand kids had a ball.

Very nice.
Feb 06, 2023
Beautiful location and well organized. The managers/hosts were outstanding and very friendly. We only stayed overnight 1 nite. The price is a little steep for us - so we moved onto Cal Expo which is half price. We don’t use our kamping as a stop over not to participate in the activities. We don’t even use campground showers or restrooms- so the price was to sterp thank you

Very nice weekend get away. Park was clean the bathrooms and laundry mat were spotless. All the employees were nice and very helpful.

When I knew we needed to have a heater the following evening after our first night's stay in the tent camping area, Dawn got right back to me (via texting) that we could upgrade to a log cabin which we did. When I went into the office for the key, your lovely cashier was waiting for us with the key AND freshly baked double chocolate cookies: I was smitten! Miniature golf was a blast as well :)

Absolutely fantastic!! From the staff to the site, everything exceeded our expectations!!
Jan 17, 2023
The front office staff was rude. For that reason alone I will probably not return. We go camping (about once per month) all over Northern California as a fun get away for our family. My favorite thing about camping is how kind everybody is. I did not get that from the front office staff.

It was fine friendly staff I thought it was a little bit pricey
Jan 12, 2023
We come to this Koa, a few times a year, to visit family, and we always have a nice stay. Easy to book or change a reservation, easy check in, and they keep us updated on things going on throughout the stay.

Nice park just expensive.

We were there during the storms and they would blow out the mini golf course, so that the kids could play, whenever the sun was shining. My son loved running to the store for a snack and he watched movies on their projector in the heated tent. You can tell they are making a lot of improvements too, Can’t wait to come back and see what’s next.

Friendly. Helpful. Clean.

Rained all 3 days. Was ok. Will be back again

We love the country view from Site 57 - 65!

Nice campground with helpful staff but WAY OVER PRICED! Would expect to pay in the $50-60 range for what and where it is - not the $106 we paid (with KOA discount) Would recommend (based on cleanliness, good staff, nice sites, amenities) to anyone who needs to be in area but just be aware of very high cost.

Staff very friendly and helpful when we needed to change space.

Enjoyed the different options of family activities- free mini golf, multiple playgrounds, feeding the goats and esp the rec tent during the rain. Didn’t use the outdoor kitchen or fishing pond but both looked really nice. Dog park was renovated and it’d be fantastic if agility type equipment was added. Traffic noise not an issue. Well kept grounds despite geese droppings everywhere. Would retu

The staff were excellent. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to help us with any needs we had. The traffic noise is a lot. The campgrounds are very nice and clean though and pleasant. I don't like that cooperate America is buying KOA's and raising the prices. The cost was high and makes me think that whoever is buying theses campgrounds has a motive of greed at my cost.

Great staff! Beautiful place. Thank you we will be bank!!

Stayed several times, this being one of the better stays. The park looks more manicured and tidy this time. A little pricey for what the park offers. I just got back from a 10,000 mile trip and stayed in much bigger, more resort like KOAs for half the price, That being said I understand this is California where EVERYTHING is overpriced and average!
Nov 28, 2022
We always enjoy your KOA, the staff are very pleasant people, we look forward to coming back soon

This is our second stay, but the alarm going off next to our trailer at 1am after thanksgiving, evacuating because we didn’t know if it was electrical as the box was marked General Electric & no way to get a hold of the office during an emergency. I didn’t mind the site having the box but having put smaller rigs in the large spot next to us and ours had two trees to navigate around to pull out
Nov 27, 2022
Outstanding staff, well kept campsites, sites are good size. Centrally located to many other activities for the family. Great Job Placerville KOA!!
