Everybody was very nice but the highway noise took some getting used to at night.

Close to downtown Asheville and biltmore but too close to I40. It's hard to sleep with all the truck using their jake brakes all night:(

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, the interstate is one of the only things we have no control over. We strive to give our visitors beautiful grounds and impeccable service to compensate for the interstate traffic. Hopefully you give us another chance to show what a great park we have.

The site was ok to get into and out. A little narrow for a long stay. We were away from the campground site seeing each day so it worked well. Owners were very nice and helped with great recommendations on what to do and see. We had fun in the area.

Overnight only. More than adequate. good level site.; Easy in. Almost could not get out because another camper had partially blocked the narrow drive. Luckily he moved out before I did. Will stay here again on trips south.

I did not realize that the campground was so close to the interstate and truck stop. We could hear cars and sirens all night long. There was a small stump in the middle of our site that made putting a tent up very difficult. The fire pit was just a very small circle of stone, our wood barely fit. I got stung by a yellow jacket as we were packing up, there were tons in our site.

I am very sorry that the interstate took your attention away from what a gorgeous facility we have. Please come to the office and let us know of any issues as they arise so, we can help fix them promptly. We hope you give us another chance in the future as we would love to have you return.

The staff was very accommodating especially since having TV issues and needed to extend my stay.

The only negative to this campground is no fenced designated for pets. You will hear some traffic noise but we didn't find it bothersome at all. Staff was super & campground is clean. Great water pressure!

Very friendly and helpful management operating this KOA in a scenic Smokey Mountains destination. As so with many rustic KOAs, not all sites are level but we found the "sweet spot" on our site and was 100% level which was important for our extended 10 day stay.

We love this KOA...staff is wonderful... great place for dogs... beautiful fall scenery...

Good location, friendly people. Old campground in need of some updating. Especially the showers.All in all good place to stay over night.

Clean - nice staff - pull through sites - fine for overnight stop. Highway noise was bad. We camped in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed 3 nights. Location great for visits to Waynesville, downtown Asheville, the Biltmore estate, etc. Our site was very level. When outside, freeway noise was horrific, but it didn't bother me inside with TV and AC fans running. We didn't spend much time there during the day anyway and super tired at night from busy days sightseeing and walking, so noise was only a very minor issue

Stayed overnight in a 5th wheel. Site was large and level. A lot of noise from I40 and the train. Ok for an overnight stay.

Loved our stay there. Friendly staff, clean everywhere and beautiful surroundings. The only 'bad' thing about the campground is the Interstate noise but other than that it was wonderful.

Everything was neat and clean, campers were friendly, and there were many suggestions as to interesting sites to see. The office people were most helpful.

Nice place to stay for an overnight or a couple of weeks. Close to Asheville, the Great Smoky NP, and the Blue Risge Parkway.

The campground was very clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. Prior to our departure, we requested that two small branches be removed from a tree so they would not scrape the side of our motorhome. Not only did the branches get removed, but we were asked if other branches needed to be trimmed to avoid damage. Now that is service!!

Great stay. Everything was really nice. Definitely will stay here again on our next trip to Ashville.

Bathrooms were spotless until a motorcycle group trashed them with dirty boots, etc. biggest problem I had (besides the 3 a.m. Noise from motorcycles) was that the fire pit of the adjacent siteS are way too close to your site. If you don't like smoke or have asthma like problems, this is not the place for you.

We stayed on the back camping area near the tower. (We had 7 motorcycles with campers) The spot was shady and the bathhouse was very clean. The camping spots need some work. Ours was washed out from all the summer rain, lots of clay. other sites that our friends were on fairly level spots, but the KOA built up the sites to level them, but they need much more work.
