Had to leave right away due to bad weather.

Easy to get to off I-40. Staff was friendly. Nice area to walk the dogs.

Stayed a week, which was too long..but wanted to see the surrounding area. Filthy fire pits, no upkeep of grounds. How they pass inspector I don't know. Sweatpants for desk employee is improper in my opinion. Smoking on duty is tasteless. Trash finally picked up between two and four pm. Then left by pool and laundry area. Stinky. As a KOA work kamper I was embarrassed.

Older park that needs a upgrade but some stuff like grass being long and sites unlevel when you have a gravel pile and machine is just laziness. Had a pullthru site that the exit road from it had a limb hanging for 4 days- my last day I asked if they could cut it so I could leave- answer was no one was availible-borrowed pole saw and I cut it. Can't recommend though office staff was ok

Off season campers. Disappointed we were so far away from attractions. Our fault did not investigate thoroughly. Would recommend to RV owners. Bert and Gini very accommodating. Stacey great help. Very clean cabins, managers worked with our botched plans. Please negate comments dated:5/8-5/11 Very accommodating.

Nice cabin, the half bath was very convenient

It was their first time to Tennessee. We were really happy about the cabin with the bath and one half. The place was quiet at night. I would recommend it to my friends who had a recreational vehicle. The spaces are at a reasonable price. The employees were very friendly and personable. And extremely helpful. Bart and Gini were great hosts.

CG is OK but road in is horrible.

Nice setting. A little off I-40 and may be difficult for larger rigs. Needs some updating.
May 11, 2017
It is peaceful and quiet. Nice people, clean facilities. It would have been better if we had a car to go to town in. Nothing within a realistic walking distance.

It was forecasted to rain all night, upgraded to a cabin from a tent site. Was very nice. Traveling through the are, would have liked to stay longer.

We love the Newport KOA! We have stayed here once before and even in the same cabin! The grounds are always kept very nice and the bathrooms and showers are very clean. The entire staff is super friendly all the time, and went out of their way to tell us about some local attractions we were looking for. Our cabin was spotless when we arrived, and it and it is landscaped very nicely.

Very friendly staff. Nice large, level, gravel sites. It was raining, so we didn't get to walk around much but looks like a very beautiful campground, nice little lake, green grass. If in this area again will definitely stay here!

We had a lovely stay at this KOA campground. They now have digital cable and one of their friendly staff worked late to get us hooked up. We specifically chose this location while visiting Pigeon Forge because they sell LP gas 7 days a week. Great service to provide!!

A great stop! We were passing through and it had all the amenities to accommodate our 38' motorhome and towed vehicle. Wonderful hosts, great gift shop and a memorable stay!

très bon accueil, une fiche complète à notre nom nous attendais. Le site est très bien entretenu.

Nice and clean. Unfortunately highway is close and noisy traffic. The grass really needed to be mowed also.

Office closed at six, unfortunately when office closed the laundry also closed...disappointed as I needed to do laundry. Explanation was "winter hours" despite being middle of April.

If we hadn't had friend staying long term there I assure you we would not have picked Newport KOA. Garbage pickup was very slow. I tried a few times to find office attendants & they were out back smoking and drinking beer. I have no problem with alcohol but I would think that would be discouraged while working. The most attentive was an older gentleman in the office on Monday as we were leaving

We stayed here for an overnight on the way from OH - SC. I had read the reviews prior to arriving. This KOA is ON the interstate. Literally. ON IT. If you like not being able to sleep due to traffic noise ALL NIGHT, by all means, book this KOA. Otherwise, stay away. The front desk people are not very friendly, there a lot of old campers on blocks, and the noise is unbearable.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Campground was wellaintained. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is due to the high noise level coming from the adjacent interstate highway.

Just an overnight stop. Friendly people.

This KOA is much higher priced than others we have stayed at with similar amenities.

Cigarette smoke in a non-smoking cabin. We got in after hours and couldn't change cabins. Called next morning to report it and manager didn't try to make it right. Also said they knew about it and previous renters were smokers and that they did a thorough cleaning. Not thorough enough. Cigarette butt found inside the cabin by our bed. Overall the bathrooms and cabins were clean.

It was clean and quite. We arrived late and everything was ready for us.

Nice little KOA, and a handy location.

Convenient to I-40 and therefore road noise was pervalent. Relatively tight spaces, friendly service, and friendly campers.
