As the Caldor Fire continues to blaze in El Dorado County, hundreds of people are still unable to return to their homes. For evacuees, there is a spot at the Shingle Springs Placerville KOA, a report said.
According to the campground owners, at one time, they served approximately 250 Caldor Fire evacuees.
Jay Simoneau, Placerville KOA owner, stated that “at first we had to cancel quite a few reservations to make space for the evacuees to stay in their spaces.”
They didn’t stop there. They began to work with local organizations to provide free meals and collect donations for those affected by the fire.
Placerville KOA has reduced its rates for Caldor Fire Evacuees.
The family-owned campground has seen a decline in revenue during its busiest season of the year. The best way for the community to support them once evacuees have returned home is to book a campsite during the slower winter months.
