Campground Reviews

Stayed in Motorcoach. Gravel roads and pads. Friendly staff. Nice setting.

Not clean.

office does not open until 9 a.m. We had a tv "box" and no where to leave it - emails not returned, camp phone went unanswered. Noise from highway traffic. No one to call in case of camp emergency. Felt we were on a desert island.

I wasn't very pleased with the site, unlevel and the hookups were not conveniently located, especially for the price. Doubt we'll ever stay again. The hostess on duty was very pleasant though.

We didn't get in until 8:30 at night and she was awesome and stop by to see if we needed anything. Brought us firewood. Thank you for helping making our trip across the east side of America awesome!

Reserved and got confirmation for 50-amp big rig site. Arrived to find that we were assigned to a 30-amp site. Host found a 50-amp site, but not really for big rigs. Due to layout of site my wife was not able to exit the coach the entire time we were there. Overall park is attractive but seems not well managed.

We had a late check in but everything we need was left in the night box. Everyone seemed friendly. We only stayed one night. We were in a motor home with a tow car. We ask for a pull thru and everything was fine.

It is a nice clean campground.Clean restrooms and showers. Perfect for staying close to attractions like Dollywood. I was just disappointed there was no fishing at the advertised catch and release pond and the noise from the interstate is loud but we were in a tent so we could hear everything.

Beautiful setting. Road in/out a little narrow. Cable needs to be fixed. We were unable to use as we couldn't access back of TV. Loved campfire. Friendly staff. Would stay again if in area.

It must be at the beginning of the season as tidying up the landscaping was not started. All gravel/ grass sites made it difficult for my husband with a walker. Cable means getting a receiver and instructions attaching to TV which is a little more involved . Decided against its use. Bathrooms other than at office not for use. Derelict campers and vehicles were parked in view of site. D

Made reservation for pull thru late arrival. Got there at 7pm, ticket clipped to box, site was an easy level spot, never unhooked. Great overnight stop.

Poorly maintained campground. Host wasn't particularly friendly.

The campground needs a lot of work and the bridge at the entrance sucks!!!!

Only staying for the night and arrived late, and hosts came by to offer their assistance. Thought it was a little more off road from interstate, but after winding around and driving pretty far back into the woods, it had circled back to right next to the interstate. However, it was still a nice stay, and we slept well.

There were dog dumplings on our campsite, the outdated playground was next to a trash mount. The website was very misleading (pictures). The nice features were the showers: lavatories and the fast internet.
Apr 11, 2015
wash rooms were nice but the rest of the grounds need upkeep

Cable TV was advertised on their website. There was no TV - cable or antenna- to be had at this campground. Poorly maintained sites. Not clean.

Clean facilities and good people. It's my first time at a KOA but I will be back.

This campground needs work. Price is OK but only for a one-night stopover.

We hope that the cable is different the next time. If not can we get two cable boxes, one for each TV. Cable was the only problem!

Nice, friendly owners. Nice cabin. The only negative I have is it was too close to the interstate... which made it very loud. Besides that it was great. And bonus they gave us a refund for leaving a day early :) which we didn't expect.

Place is amazing clean, friendly and close to town. Would definitely stay again.

This campground needs some maintenance, the sites were very unlevel, all gravel areas uneven with washed out spots. Cabins very close together and not really any place to park or to turn car around. Lots of road noise, but would probably return to use cabin in off season again but not during busier times of year.

The friendliness of the office hostess made this stay perfect. We were so happy we were escorted to our site!
