Trailer Life Cream of the Crop Campsites: Feather Falls KOA & Casino—Oroville, CA
Nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills just 70 miles north of Sacramento off scenic Highway 70, this year-round campground is the first tribal-owned KOA in the country. The Concow-Maidu manage this family-friendly complex, which also includes a casino and lodge.
The Feather Falls KOA campground has 43 paved, level RV campsites with full hookups (30/50 amp) and room for slideouts. Pull-thru sites measure 29 x 55 ft. and back-in sites measure 29 x 50 ft. Each RV campsite has a patio, picnic table, free WiFi Internet and cable TV service. Trash pickup at your site is provided for your convenience.
You’ll enjoy on-site laundry facilities, a group meeting hall, rec room and gift shop in two beautiful round-house structures that reflect the native Concow-Maidu heritage. Private bathrooms with showers are located behind the general store, while another bathhouse with showers is next to the pool and spa area.
Firewood and LP gas can be bought at the general store, in addition to a variety of camping and grocery items. You’ll enjoy tasty fare at the casino buffet or Village Café restaurant, or you can grab a quick bite at the on-site Taco Bell/Pizza Hut.
Relax by the heated pool (open March 31 to October 31) or soak in the outdoor spa. Settle into a poolside deck chair to catch up on that book you’ve been meaning to finish. Challenge a neighbor to a friendly game of horseshoes, or watch the grandkids enjoy the playground.
