Easy access from the interstate, all of the things advertised are in working order, close to all this places we need access to, and the staff is always friendly and easy to work with...we like this KOA a lot and will continue to stay there on our trips north and south!

It was great!

We were traveling for a quick weekend and needed a place to stay on our way to our destination. Your KOA staff made it easy for our late check-in and early departure! We stayed in a camping cabin and it was very nice and clean! Thanks for all you do!

We did not stay. It was dark when we arrived and we could not see even where our campground space was. It was not easy to drive in or drive out with a big rig. Husband had to walk thru with a flash light to find our way out. We finally maneuvered our way out and went to park in Walmart. Looked really crummy from what we could tell in the pitch black dark..maybe it looks better in the daylight ..

The only negatives are my inability to access the TV cable and the condition of the road to the KOA. Otherwise we were quite happy and will be back.

This was a very nice campground for an overnight stop. The staff was very friendly. The restroom facilities were clean. I would stay here again.

Didn't stay very long as came in late and left next morning. Seemed to be nice though. The use of a cable box was a bit bothersome as all our TVs are built in and hard to get to back to change our cable lines. Friendly staff.

Very nice people who did their best to help. THEY CUT BACK SOME TREE LIMBS SO WE COULD UPEN SLIDEOUTS THEN TRIED TO GET A SIGNAL FOR OUT TWO TVS NEVER GOT A SIGNAL. sO WE HAD NO TV FOR THE STAY. I STILL PAID THEIR usual price without my complaining. I would never stay there again. The pool was out of season and very much in need of cleaning. Restroom /shower were very good, ultra clean.

Nice stay but the beds in the camping cabins are like sleeping on slate rocks. The interstate traffic was pretty noisy all night too. Bathrooms were nice and clean.

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.
Oct 14, 2015
Nice and sort of clean
Oct 09, 2015
campground was fine, could use some updating and leveling of sites. Good for overnight stop. office personnel friendly, no problems.
Oct 08, 2015
Very nice campground in a quiet setting.
Oct 06, 2015
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.

Beautiful camp ground. The camp ground is located near everything I like and enjoy in the Smokey's..
Oct 03, 2015
Friendly staff, cute cabin with 1/2 bath, fresh gravel on roads, near restaurants

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.
Sep 28, 2015
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
