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.

Nice layout with lots of trees. Desk staff was friendly and accomodating. The only drawbacks were the truck noise from the freeway and men's room (disgusting).

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.

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!
