Campground Reviews

Jul 21, 2014
The gounds are very well kept and the staff at the Newport KOA are among the finest my family has encountered camping, very professional and extremely friendly. I could only hope that other campgrounds used the Newport KOA as a business model. Thank you all for making our second stay there part of a great vacation!

The Kabin was convenient to the bathhouse, which was in very good condition. We arrived late and everything was in place for our stay. We enjoyed it.

Campground was fine, although it is an older facility. WIFI worked which is important to me.

The pool and the fountain up front were totally green. Would not swim or drink any water from this place.

The freeway noise was a bit too much at this camp site. The bath and shower house was very clean!

We stay here every year on our way home from Myrtle Beach S.C. Very peaceful and quiet place to get off the long road. Great pool and friendly service. Big rig friendly with 50 amp full hookups. See you next year!

Everything was great except the pool. It was green. Also, people were smoking in the bathroom.

This was the worst campground I have stayed at. Dirty high grass and many locals have made this their home. Did not feel safe. Very disappointed and not at all pleased with this KOA

The roads with skinny getting into the park as well as the rows in the park. The park was pleasant.

We came in at the last minute on a sat. nite and they found room for all three of our rather long camper situations. Thx to the fine people of Newport KOA on I-40. John

The pool, bathrooms, and showers were clean. However, when I was walking to the main office, one of the workers approached me and told me that he thought about running me over with his truck but decided not to. I was very uncomfortable around him and would not recommend this KOA to anyone.

very pleasant campground

Great wooded sites and friendly folks. Sites were rather narrow, though, and a dog park would be a great addition.

wifi did not work well at our site. Others were not happy they could not connect i-pads except near the pool.

entry roads narrow rough and low hanging tree branches, no satellite signal at site either from roof dish or portable. lots of highway noise, way over priced for what it is.

The facility advertised that there was wifi. Ay my site I had poor reception. I teach online classes and was unable to conduct my class. The screen sometimes took 4 minutes to refresh or just hung up. An adjacent camper also shared the same situation. I was not streaming videos but working.

Was good, staff were friendly. Still find most KOA's too close to the road, so very noisy but wasn't too bad here.

Our initial ride to the office was interesting as we had to put our truck in 4wheel drive to get up the hill. The site was "ok" the pool cloudy and disgusting. No way was I going swimming in there!

This is a nice place to stay. We had an issue regarding getting our unit level, but they let us change sites and we were very happy.

Truly what I would call and "All American" facility!!

beautiful shady campground. Very quiet and restful. Perfect place to stay!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The dog run was the largest one we have seen.The dogs loved it. The camp sites were nice and shaded with other sites more sunny if this is your preference. The grounds were well kept and there were plenty of activities.

Amazing! Hoping to make it an annual place for the Seay Family Reunion.

This KOA has a good location and decent Wi-Fi. The folks are friendly and Check-in was easy. BUT: Spaces are very tight and Very close together. Your very nice picnic table is next to your neighbors plumbing - more so than any place we've stayed. Tree limbs rubbed the coach (Not just the antennas) on the road in and at our site. The driveway crosses a very narrow bridge in a turn.

The air conditioner in the cabin kept shutting off like it had a thermostat on it but it was still hot in the cabin. I didn't realize the pool was open to the public & the bathroom was constantly dirty. The wood we purchased was wet & didn't burn very well. Never saw a snack bar and there wasn't very much to buy in the store. The KOA in Cherokee has a lot more amenities and costs about the same.

The air conditioner in my cabin would not stay on. There was only one bathroom for the whole camp and the campground allowed locals to swim in their pool fire a fee so the bathroom was constantly occupied.
