Always clean and well taken care of. Great place to stay.

This campground was not what I expected. We were told it was paved, and it was grave, there was no game room. The camping spots were right on top of each other and the fishing pond was completely dried up. Not to mention, the campground was filled with individuals that lived there on a permanent basis. If I wanted an experience like this, I would have just parked in a truck stop.

Very nice staff. Friendly and willing to help in any way. We are tent campers and we enjoyed our stay. The only recommendation I have would be to install a camp kitchen.

It was fine for one night while traveling I-40. The main issue were the large pot holes at the entrance and exit.

Really liked the cable connection that used a cable box. Much better than the other 2 KOA's we stayed at on this trip.

If the frogs would shut up.... nice facility, just enough light at night. The only problem I had was that the shower dressing areas are tiny and there are huge two-step stools in there to put your stuff on. I almost tripped over mine twice. Get a picture of the still. It has one of those cutouts you stand behind so you can be a moonshiner with a rifle.

The sites were great. Staff did a fantastic job getting out tent and camper sites together. Only complaint we had was the fishing pond was so tempting but not stocked and water low.

This koa is great. Easy access to pigeon forge and gaitlinburg and away from all the traffic and noise. Amenities are good too. Staff was very friendly and helpful

Power outage wasn't their fault.

Great place for low key relaxation after long hours of interstate driving.

The bathrooms were definitely very clean and our cabin was also. The town of Newport has a variety of places to eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner. However, I was expecting a nice quiet campground in the mountains with a nice view. I was not expecting a campground near a trailer park with the constant hum of traffic from the nearby highway and interstate.

We only stayed one night but I don't think We would go back. Needs to update their campsites and cable. Sites not level! Bathrooms were clean. Staff was friendly.

The kabin was clean and comfortable. I love that the playground and bathrooms were so close and the owners answered the phone to help me understand the night check in process. I would stay here again given the chance.

Thought we would have a peaceful night back in the woods , however it was very noisy feom the road traffic. The playground and picnic facility was very nice however the dog walk left much to be desired ! No bench , high wet grass , this should be improved .

Stayed here before. Great overnight stop when traveling. Secluded yet easy access to freeway. Several nearby gas stations set up to accommodate motor homes and trailers.
Jun 08, 2015

Owners are great campground is clean with nice trees
Jun 02, 2015
We liked the convenience of checking in after hours on our own without having reservation because it wasn't our planned stop but had to stop earlier. We thought this KOA campground was extremely well kept up and the owner was real polite and courteous.

1. No paved roads 2. Cable consists of you having to hook up a cable box, that they give to you at no extra charge, to your TV. We are unable to "get behind" our TV, so we had no TV for our 2-night stay. It would have been good if we knew that when we made the reservation! I'm sure we would not have stayed there!

Very quiet, but challenging to enter and get to your site. Roadway coming in from Rt. 25 is narrow and the roads in the campground are also quite narrow for a large coach. But it was very peaceful once parked.

Use old cable boxes. Our TV is against wall and could not plug in box for cable..Local channels and few and fare between.
