Campground Reviews

Nice updated restroom / shower facilities. Office and staff were exceptional. Sites are under renovation. Electrical and water hook ups need some attention. Overall a good experience.
May 22, 2017
Well let's just call this KOA the truck stop. Not that there's anything wrong with a truck stop. It is located literally 100 yards away from one. So if you want quiet this is not the place to go. Now the bath house was extremely clean and the staff was super nice. But we won't be back.

Great stay
May 22, 2017
Very clean restrooms and showers, the dumping station was difficult to get into it would be easier if the trees were trimmed a bit, Interstate noise was a little loud for where we were parked.
May 22, 2017
Staff was friendly and helpful. Met some nice people as well while enjoying my camping experience.

Little bit to noisy with I-40 so close by.
May 21, 2017
Nice place....
May 21, 2017
Heather was wonderful and helped us with directions and a pleasure to talk to. I would not return due to traffic noise from I 40. Could not sit outside and had to wear earplugs to block out some of the noise.

It was our pleasure to have you with us for your visit to the area! We enjoyed chatting with you! We are sorry that you were bothered by the highway. Some people are more sensitive than others with that. Unfortunately this comes with the convenience of easy on and off access to the highway...

Nice campground close to everything enjoyed it very much. Thanks

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us!! We enjoyed your visit too and look forward to seeing you all again in the future! Safe travels!

Clean campgrounds, nice facilities and tent sites. Too close to the highway though and not close enough to hiking in the area. Everything was about 1 hour+ drive.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for staying with us for your visit to the area! We are very sorry that the highway bothered you... We actually have lots of places to hike within about 30 minute or less from us. We love to point out great hiking points, just ask! :)

Roads need work. Good & friendly staff

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for your visit and enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again! We are constantly working on improvements on our park and the roads are no exception. In fact this past year we have laid over 800 tons of road bond down! That's a lot of stuff! I'm sure there will be more before we are done.

The free way is in the backyard of this KOA. it is very loud all night. Also, I was pretty bummed I was not allowed to stay for the cheaper "tent, no hook-ups" price considering I was planning to sleep in my car and not use any kind of hook-ups. I only needed to use the shower facility. Since all the "tent, no hook-up" sites were taken, I had to pay $10 extra for no gained benefit.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for staying with us on your overnight stay in the area! We are sorry that the highway bothered you... As far as the site rate, if the type site was all that was available that night and you occupied the site (so no one else could rent it) that is the rate of that site per night.
May 19, 2017
Helpful staff, nice sites tho a little close. Very well cared for park, loved the walking trails. Convenient to many attractions.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you got to visit with us and we hope to see you again in the future! :) We are also glad that you got to take advantage of our newly renovated trails. We have been enjoying them as well. Here's to a fantastic camping season for you. Enjoy!
May 19, 2017
Nice campground but too much noise from interstate. Also turn leaving for interstate is almost blind to the left in a coach.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for your stay with us and enjoyed having you with us. We are sorry that you were bothered by the highway. That, unfortunately is something that goes along with the convenience of easy on and off access. We will see if there are some trees to trim to help with the leaving. Thank you!
May 18, 2017
Great and close to the interstate. Super friendly staff. BUT it's got a horrible entrance to negotiate and short sites that were hard to get into. Full hookups fine, good for overnight. Not a destination for this family.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us this past visit to the area! We enjoyed chatting with you! We wanted to let you all know that we had plans to make some super sites in that area this year, they have been postponed, but hope to have them in before next season. So stay tuned we are always working!
May 17, 2017
Clean, organized, well laid out sites

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the thumbs up! And, thank you so very much for choosing us to stay with us while you were in the area! We enjoyed your visit here and hope that we get to see you again in the future! Happy and safe travels!
May 17, 2017
The cabin was very clean and the bed was comfortable!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Clean and comfortable makes for a good nights stay! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us and thank you for choosing us as your campground for the night! We hope to see you again should you find your way passing through here again. Safe journey and happy kamping!
May 17, 2017
Good place to stay while around Ashville. Could use a little updating, but otherwise OK.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us while here in the Asheville area! We hope you enjoyed your visit. As with everything, we have a "to do" list that we are constantly working on. We have already updated both bath houses, some cabins, game room, laundry and some sites. More to come! Stay tuned! :)
May 16, 2017
I stayed in a cabin, I thought they were a little to close to each other. Ashville west is nice, but I think Asheville east would be closer to what most people want to visit. The staff was very pleasant. Good facilities. Clean, Night security.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for staying with us for the "Come Camp and Care With Us" weekend to benefit the Care Camps. The kids that go to these camps with be thankful! We are actually centrally located to many area attractions, we hope that you were able to take advantage of some of them! Happy Kamping!
May 16, 2017
We could not have asked for the owners to be more friendly and helpful!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We loved having you with us and look forward to hopefully getting to visit with you all again in the future! It was a pleasure to get the chance to chat with you all and share the beauty of western North Carolina! Happy kamping! :)
May 16, 2017
As always, we enjoying staying at your campground. We picked KOA West as our mountain camping home. The management and staff are so kind and helpful. My son enjoyed the resident cats visit. We'll b back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Welcome home! :) We thoroughly enjoy your visits and always look forward to see you all again. Thank you for coming back again and again! I'm sure Jackie (the resident cat) enjoys visiting with you too! She likes to keep an eye on things, so she will check in on you again. :) Until next time!
May 16, 2017

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

And we really enjoyed having you stay with us! It was a pleasure to visit with you all. We hope you got to do all you had planned to do, if not, our doors are always open! Happy Kamping! :)
May 15, 2017
Staff is great. Not much in the way of amenities. Facilities and grounds clean and well kept. I would recommend for a quick overnight stay or if you are seeing the local sights and not spending time on the grounds. We live local and may not be back for a quick weekend like we usually camp. Would definitely use if passing through and need a quick overnight stop.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for coming and staying with us for the "Come Camp and Care With Us" weekend. The Care Camps that benefit from that weekend will be very grateful! We enjoyed having you stay with us and hope to see you again even though we are not far from home. Happy Kamping!
May 15, 2017
Great stay! Very friendly and accommodation staff. Very clean restrooms and showers with lots of hot water. Very nice outdoor pool. Heather is a fantastic hostess with good deals for touring the area!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your visit and thank you for the thumbs up! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! We sure enjoyed having you here. :) If you are ever in the area again, we would love to visit with you more! Safe journey and happy kamping! :)

May 13, 2017
Office closed when we pulled in. Saw no staff til next am. Our site extremely loud traffic noise. Sites not very neat and clean. Ok for quick overnight. Would not go back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for your visit with us and we are sorry that we missed you since you arrived after hours. We always let our guests know that we can be reached if needed. We are so sorry you were not satisfied. We wish that you had contacted us and let us fix your problems while you were here...

Tent site, everything was good.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing to stay with us! We enjoyed having you visit with us. We hope you got to do all the things you wanted to do while in the area. If you did not get to, our doors are open and we would love to see you all again! Happy Kamping!
May 10, 2017
The kampground was nicely wooded and the staff very friendly. The sites were very nice. The only problem was the close proximity to the interstate, especially loud from the mountain background and trucks using engine brakes. We stayed a week, and will come back when we need a quick stop through. Long term I'd rather get a bit further from the loud traffic.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We enjoyed having you stay with us! Glad you got to do and see what you wanted to while here. We are very sorry that the highway bothered you though, the one problem we can't do anything about. We are located here for the convenience of our guests. We do hope to see you again!
May 10, 2017
Love the improvements.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for noticing and giving us a thumbs up! We enjoyed your visit with us and look forward to seeing you all again in the future! Happy Kamping!

Great stop for an overnight; handy to the interstate. Very friendly and helpful staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us! We enjoyed your visit, even though it was a short one. Hope to see you all again in the future! Safe journey and happy kamping! :)

The staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay. The cabin was very neat and well maintained. When we had an issue with the heat in our cabin, they sent someone right out to fix and it even provided space heaters since we had a small child in our cabin. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend them to anyone

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It sure was a pleasure to have you all stay with us! And thank you for being understanding as we got the heater all fixed for you. We hope you enjoyed your stay as much as we did and that you all get to come back and spend more time in the area soon! Thanks again for staying with us!
May 09, 2017
The staff was very pleasant and inviting. The shower house and bathrooms were great and clean. Being able to wash dishes outside the bathhouse was awesome. However, this KOA was more geared to campers and RVS, not tents. Both our family and the family next to us had problems with the tent site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so very glad you chose us to stay with us for your visit to the area! We are sorry you had issues with your site. Please, keep in mind that we are have upgrades coming in the future, so stay tuned! I hope that you will give us another try. We would love to see your smiling faces again. :)
May 09, 2017
Very friendly staff. The site was in excellent condition (patio site) and very level. Campground was very quiet (I-40 noise, but that was expected and not bad inside the camper).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the thumbs up and for choosing to stay with us! We truly enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again in the future! It is always nice to visit with our gusts and see their smiling faces! :)

Campsite B14 is horrible to tent camp in when it is raining, and it was raining the whole time we were there. The place to put up the tent is lower than the rest of the sirt

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for choosing us to stay with on your weekend here in the area. We are so sorry it rained. we know that kinda stinks when you are camping. Please, stay tuned, because we do have some upgrades planned for the future for these sites. We are sorry you had an issue with yours...

The owners of this KOA care about their customers. Very helpful with local questions, printed tickets for us, helped us find RV parts. Bathrooms were spotless.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We truly enjoyed visiting with you and hope that we get to see you all again in the future! We just love to meet new people and hear what they are up to and all about their travels! Best wishes and safe travels! :)

This would be more of a stop over koa the best that we could tell. It would be nice for late arrival to have escort by golf cart to camp site's .this is always helpful to us. We weren't the only ones to drive around several times not very many lights. But we love KOA camping

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for visiting with us! We are very sorry that you didn't have an escort after hours. During our main season, we do have extra help to do that for our guests, right now we are working with a smaller staff. Hopefully we will get to help you out in the future! Happy Kamping! :)
May 08, 2017
We came to Asheville for the Mother Earth News Fair and were so glad to have a cozy Kamping Kabin to come home to after a cold day in the rain. Friendly folks and super clean! Thanks for a great weekend. We're planning to be back next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We loved getting to chat with you while you were here. Thank you for sharing some of the interesting things you learned at the fair! We will do our best to order up better weather next year for you all! :) Have a wonderful summer and we will see you next time!
May 08, 2017
Ran out of hot water. Nice to have all the needed info in an envelope...we arrived after closing. Nice to have heaters in the shower area

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us this last visit! You happened to get a very cold and wet weekend that was for sure. I'm sorry that you ran out of hot water, that is very unusual, but not surprising since it was so cold and we were a very full park. We will have to look into another water tank. :)
May 07, 2017
Nice people and campground. Our site was near the office area and it was quite. Would not like being on the back row as 1-40 noise would be bad. Would recommend they put up noise barriers for interstate noise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for coming to stay with us! We did enjoy visiting with you. We are sorry that you were bothered by the highway noise. Unfortunately, we have looked into barriers and were told by engineers that it would not fix the problem due to our mountain terrain. We did try and will continue!
May 06, 2017
Loud road noise

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We would like to thank you for staying with us! And as always, welcome you back. We are sorry you were bothered by the highway noise. We are located where we are for the convenience of guests for easy on and off access and close to area attractions. This is a feature that many KOAs are known for.
May 04, 2017
We stopped here for an overnight stay on the way to our final destination. The campground was adequate and the hosts very friendly. The interstate noise was very loud, but it was very convenient to the highway.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As always, we thank you for your over night stay with us! :) Wish we could have had more time to visit, but hope that we will get to see you again in the future! We are very sorry, however, you were bothered by the highway noise...that is part of the convenience of being close to everything.
