Nice level tree covered spots. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rest rooms were clean, heated and cheery. We would come back if in the area. Only thing keeping it from being a 5 is it is close to I-40 and truck noise is noticed but not all that bad.

The cabin I stayed in was cozy, comfortable and clean. It had a heater,which was very nice since the temps dropped to the 30's at night! And there's a fenced dog run too! I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's and staff are always great. Nice to stay out of the hustle and bustle of the Gatlinburg area. Bert is one of the nicest people I've ever met. Will be back.

Cabins and bathrooms were all very clean and nice. The firepits needed emptying out and other outdoor areas could use cleaning and mowing.

Nice and sort of clean

Very nice campground in a quiet setting.

Very convenient to interstate. Super friendly staff. Campground had some older trailers and campers that detracted from appearance. The county maintained road needs a lot of work. The campground roads are fine but a bit narrow for big rigs. I will probably stay here again on my way to North Carolina because of the convenience and the nice people.

Very clean. Enjoyed the play area for our 2 year old daughter. It's a treat when on the road. Staff was on site and it was so easy to check in and out. Appreciate all they did to make a stressful trip feel like home.

My sister, and daughter and I had a lovely stay. The folks are real friendly and helpful. We stay in the small cabin it was very clean. It near the interstate so their will be traffic noise but that understanble. My bed creaked but it came a game to see if I could get up with out waken the others. loll's We all would stay their again. Friendly town and folks.

While I realize that it is the end of September, the very green pool was awful to look at and I wondered about the cleanliness of the rest of the park. Close the pool and cover it. Don't let it turn green.

Nice older campground. Did request to have sites side-by-side with another couple but placed 2 sites away when one site right next to them was never used for the weekend. No big deal - just a micro - inconvenience ! Trees leaked gooey sap over camper & truck but can't fault campground for that. We'll be back since convenient to home for fast getaway.

Easy to get to. Camp host quickly helped with power issue and cable box! Clean
Sep 27, 2015
Mist sites not level and extremely due to residents coming and going at all hours.
Sep 25, 2015
Nice campground. Updated bathroom and showers. Sites were not as level as I would have liked. Have to use a cable box for TV.
Sep 25, 2015
Clean, quiet, friendly. Arrived late. Very excellent system for late arrivers. Bit out of the way for direction headed but would do it again. Good job KOA Newport.

The staff is very kind and friendly. The sites are level, and the landscaping the lovely. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Loved being by the lake. Enjoy clean showers.... Always at KOA! The aroma of burning fires, the campfires reflecting on the lake, the soft sounds of people laughing in the distance, the slight chill in the air prompting a light sweater, and finally a sweet beverage and snack as we relaxed in the late evening, put my senses on overload! It was wonderful.

Clean bathrooms and showers (I had to sneak in while they were cleaning and they were using bleach in the showers and had sprayed down the floors and shower walls from what I could see.)Nice pool area in the sun and kids were able to ride their bikes throughout the KOA. Cabin was clean. Staff is friendly. About 30 minutes away from Hot Springs, NC for those looking to do some Appalachian Trail hik

Ok for a one night stay but wouldn't stay any longer. Many permanent residents some appeared to be questionable.
Sep 09, 2015
Could use some maintainance!

The campground was really clean. Clean restrooms, pool was large and nice. You can hear road noise from the freeway at night but other than that it was great.
Sep 08, 2015
KOA sites were fine but felt more like a pull up stay overnight and leave not what I was expecting to see at a KOA. I have always had good experiences at KOA, but this felt a little lacking. Advertised a lake (there was none). Would not go back to this location.

Noisey, grounds were unkept, the owners were very nice but this campground did notlive up to the koa standards. Not at all like pictures.
