Friendly, courteous, knowlegeable staff...great facilities, amazingly clean, ask for earplugs at check-in...very useful for traveling light sleepers...we loved the scavenger hunt for kids and ample shade for the sites, was very convenient for all our activities

Our overall experience was 'meh'. The grounds were fine & everything was functional, but the front desk employee (blonde female) was condescending & negative from the moment we checked in. When I asked for quarters for the laundry room, she proceeded to talk to us like kids (We're in our late 30s). The tone was not precautionary or educational, it was as if I'd already broken the machines.

We came in after dark on Eclipse eve and the person on duty asked if we wanted to stay ...and surprise ! ...you had a vacancy ! - we never dreamed you would. We had friendly service and helpful neighbors. A wonderful stay, thank you. Mindy

Campground is in a beautiful setting. Only problem was the smell of sewerage.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for appreciating the beauty of our forest setting. Historic Canton, located six miles from us has a paper mill that produces that odor. Early morning winds will sometimes bring it our way. Most days are filled with delightful sunshine, fresh air and the smell of campfire and dinners being cooked on the grill. We hope you enjoyed your stay with us.

Very pleasant stay. Nice, pretty location. Awesome and helpful staff and employees. A bit near I-40 but not terribly noisy. Would definitely stay here again!

Lots of traffic noise from route 40. Other then that the campground was very nice and my dog liked all the trails

Staff was extremely helpful and kind. Nice pool and nice area to play games. Only draw back was the road traffic... unfortunately I was unable to sleep well.

Highway noise interrupted our sleep. Needed more gravel around the sites. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The laundry facilities were nice. Appreciated the trash pickup. Overall a nice campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We enjoyed meeting you and thank you for your nice comments. We have many improvements planned over the next couple of years and think that you will be very pleased when you come our way again. Being close to the highway makes for easy on and off access to all of the wonderful Blue Ridge, Smoky Mountains and Asheville sites. Hope to see you soon.

Very clean facilities. Deluxe cabin was great and well maintained. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Pool is super clean. We really loved our stay of 11 days to the fullest.

We had stayed at KOA when we were younger. There was a long lapse in between. Now that we are back, Ashville KOA was terrific. The staff was the best. Hookups were well placed and the restroom facilities were always clean. We will come back again for sure!!!!!

staff was very friendly and helpful

For a weeks stay we felt we were given one of the worst full hook up sites. The fence 10 feet from our door facing a full time old motor home with unsightly piping was not pleasant. The huge rock gravel was not easy to walk on even in tennis shoes. Bathrooms were clean but the motion light went out twice, not fun.

We stayed for 5 nights. The campground is friendly, clean, and quiet. The best part was the camp host delivering wood in a mini cooper, with his mastif in the passangers seat. Highly recommended

The Asheville West KOA served well as oyr base for visiting multiple sites in and around Asheville. The staff was very welcoming and friendly.
Aug 17, 2017
Clean site. Friendly staff. Clean restrooms and showers. Would definitely recommend to others. Gave 4 stars because it is not the best KOA but still very nice.
Aug 17, 2017
Every thing extremely clean. We're given the best site in the park. Drove over & damaged 2 landscape ties at site, & was forgiven! Offered to pay for 1/12 hrs extra needed to check out, & was told it was Ok. No pay needed. Thank you from my wife & myself for a wonderful stay, & for your help, assistance, & patience. Hope to see you next year. Bill Hauswirth

Parking pads were a bit short and not very level. Bathroom & shower facility very clean. Office personnel friendly & helpful!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing Asheville West for your recent stay. We are very proud of our staff and bath houses so we are glad that you had the same experience. We have many improvements planned for the near future which should address your comment regarding the parking pad. We hope that you will stay with us on your next visit to this area to see the changes.

First stay here but not the last,great campground with an excellent and friendly staff.Everyone mentions the I 40 noise and yes it's there,but not worthy of deducting a star.There making a lot of improvements on the grounds and I look forward to returning in the spring.

Thanks for choosing one of our Deluxe Cabins for your week's visit to the Asheville area. We look forward to seeing you next time through our area.

This was our third stay at Asheville west. This time it seemed noisy. Maybe it was due to construction or just because it's summer but it wasn't as good as usual
Aug 14, 2017
I had a problem moving my legs . I didn't know if I would have to go home . We paid a day at a time . That was so nice to save our place . We did end up staying the whole time . Thank you for understanding .

Friendly and helpful staff and beautiful and sizeable tent site. Great stay!
Aug 13, 2017
Very clean and well-attended campground. The staff was very nice and helpful. Plenty of people there to help with any need. The highway noise is the only thing that keeps it from being 5-star.
Aug 13, 2017
We had a pleasant stay at this site. Clean, friendly, conveniently located. The distant highway sound was not disturbing us one bit.
Aug 13, 2017
The kozy cabins are awesome. The community swings and kitchen are very unique and efficient. Bathhouses are superclean and very central to the cabin location. ALL of the staff were polite and professional. We obtained our tickets for the Biltmore at the campground... 2 days for the price of 1....can't beat that!. We loved our time there, best KOA stay ever!Thank you KOA!!!

Jammed in like sardines.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our campsites are different lengths and some are better suited to fifth wheels than to motorcoaches. Unfortunately when a site is only needed for an overnight stay, we are sometimes forced to accomodate a larger rig in a less than ideal site. We have many improvements planned over the next couple of years that should help this concern. We hope that you will come back and enjoy the new sites.
Aug 13, 2017
The campsite we were given was complete mud puddles there was no part that wasn't a puddle so it was hard to camp we ended up having to put our tent where we should've parked because it was the only part that wasn't an actual puddle. Also the security woke us up a few times. But other than that the people are friendly the bath houses are amazing and the camp grounds aren't far from Asheville.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Delighted that you found our staff friendly and the bath houses to your satisfaction. Unfortunately, when it rains in the mountains puddles form everywhere. We have improvements planned in the near future that should help this concern. Thanks for choosing Asheville West for your recent stay.

Campground was fine and location was good but noise was intolerable. I would choose Maggy Valley was peace and quiet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate you choosing Asheville West for your recent visit to the Asheville area. Many of our campers like that our campground is very centrally located to all of the surrounding mountains, waterfalls, breweries, the Biltmore and downtown Asheville. In addition, our KOA has easy on and off access to the highway. We enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again.
Aug 10, 2017
Friendly staff and very clean bathrooms, but why in the world you would build a campground directly on a interstate!? You cannot escape from traffic noise and rumbling eighteen-wheelers all day and all night. I really wasn't expecting this and I it surely didn't give us that KOA-feeling as promised.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing the Asheville West for your recent stay. We pride ourselves on having a very friendly staff and very clean bathrooms so we really appreciate your comments. Many KOA's are located close to the highway for easy on and off access. We are centrally located to Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway, The Biltmore and many other sights. This allows easy access for our campers.

Our hosts were wonderful. My Grandson loved the pool. My only criticism is that the deluxe cabin was not as deluxe as we thought it would be. We stayed in one in Crossville TN that had a fully stocked kitchen and bed linens. This one had a microwave, fridge and coffee maker; however, we had to use paper as a coffee filter. But that's what roughing it is all about! And I should have asked about it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for all of your kind comments. We really enjoyed meeting you. Thanks for pointing out that even though most KOA's have cabins, the floor plans and furnishing can vary. We hope to see you again and recommend the other deluxe cabin for your next stay.

7 Nights in Tent site, Very loud I-40 noise... but the campground was fabulous otherwise. Clean, fresh and friendly staff. The nit picking of not parking on the grass was a bit much considering the ruts were there already and really 4 inches of my tire vs 10X16 tent directly on the grass....?? Otherwise was a grand stay. Other half of party stayed in a Cabin! That was beautiful (not as noisy!)
Aug 09, 2017
stay was fine. rained whole time so not much to comment on
Aug 09, 2017
Everything excel our expectations, we had a great time!
Aug 09, 2017
We love this campground! We have stayed at this particular campground for the last 10 years and it has always been well maintained, friendly staff, close to restaurants, easy to locate and just an awesome place to hang your hat for a night or a week or longer! I recommend this campground all the time to people traveling that way!
Aug 09, 2017
Other than I40, can't help that, it was the quietest KOA we've stayed in! It also had the cleanest shower facilities that we've seen in a while. The host were very friendly and helpful too! I liked that they would pick up your trash in the morning.

This is one of the better campgrounds we've been to. Very clean, well maintained, staff is SUPER friendly and accommodating. Cable was ok, Wi-Fi was the best of any campground (not great for firestick continuous use, but pretty good most of the time). Some road noise from I-40 but A/C fan drowned that out completely. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

We truly enjoyed having you with us for the ten nights you spent with us. It is great to get to know our campers and are always delighted when we have you for an extended stay. Hope your sightseeing and activities were equally as good.

Nice camp ground, friendly and helpful staff,camp ground was clean, site spacing was ok. The store could carry a few more items. WiFi leaves a lot to be desired. I have read a lot of comments about the traffic noise from I40, our campsite was right next to it and my wife and I hardly noticed it. Easy access to Asheville.
Aug 07, 2017
Friendly staff, helpful. Clean restrooms and pool area. Grounds and trails kept up well. A few of the campsites (B3-6) are high just under the RV, creating a deep step-off to the campsite when using RV stairs. But all in all, one of our favorite campgrounds (3rd visit in 13 months).
Aug 07, 2017
Great campground. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. They are in the process of completing a lot of upgrades.
