Campground Reviews

Jun 02, 2013
To close to the highway (Noisy) The site I was in was very Buggy. The road in seemed a little bit of a poor section of town. The staff were friendly, not crazy about trailers with year round campers and the mess around their trailers. It wasn't a bad stay other wise.

Road noise was terrible and the owners house was right behind my tent. His dog kept coming down to my tent and barking at me. I left early because of it.

Lots of interstate noise, but secluded area. Would like to have had a bit more level area. Friendly and nice. Shower rooms were very nice.

Wi-Fi didn't work well, cable reception poor, couldn't get satellite as requested

People that run this campground were extremely helpful. The highway was fairly close and very noisy. Our neighbor came out to get his puppy with his pants around his knees and his black underwear (thank goodness he had some on) for all to see.

Average compared to other KOAs that we have stayed in. Sites were unmowed. Very slow wifi (0.6 mbps). Clean bathrooms however. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The volunteer staff were the best. We couldn't thank Larry enough for his help. He alone is responsible for the 7 rating.

Really nice. Arrived little late and Larry still stayed to help us get set up and settled.

Campground is ok. Bathrooms closest to most sites were locked. Road to camp in poor shape and very narrow.

KOA in Newport is the best campground in the town. The only real thing that I see wrong with this and every KOA that I have ever stayed is the costs is too high. Other campgrounds have just as much at sometimes half the cost.

The campground is great. Clean bathrooms. Area is well kept.

Such friendly people.. I'm a new RV'er, and had a problem with my awning as I was leaving. Larry, a volunteer there, spent 45 minutes helping me figure it out! WOW!

This KOA has the cleanest bathrooms we have ever seen. Check-in and duration of stay was very great. We have already recommended this KOA to family and friend. Thanks for a wonderful adventure at Newport, TN.

One of the better kept KOAs we have stayed at in a long time. Wish the quality that your park displayed was the norm for KOA, like it used to be.

Fabulous and Friendly!!!!

Advertized free wi-fi but no internet available. Office hours not long enough for campers. They closed at 4:45 and we couldn't get a few things we needed (coffee, firewood etc) We stay at a lot of KOA's and this was by far the worst! They also had me doublebooked but we got there before the office closed and did get re-inbursed for the mistake. Would not stay at this KOA again.

Way too much road noise, very messy junky permanent sites, old unusable picnic tables. Friendly workers. Dog poop not picked up. Didn't get much sleep due to the noise.

I have always liked this KOA in Newport. Even though it rained every day and the pool was not opened yet, we still had a good site and time. Thanks,

Campground was noisy from I40 traffic. Bathrooms were clean but hand air dryer failed to work due to electical problem in mens room. Owner fixed the problem after being informed of lack of lights and dryer over sink areas.

Outstanding place to stay. I have in the past and will stay again in the future.

Arrived after hours and had to leave early as we were driving cross country. Late registration process was easy - including credit card payment option. Thanks!

staff was great, campground clean and quiet,close to mountains
Apr 17, 2013
Camp store was not fully stocked.
Apr 16, 2013
The campground is too small for large coaches. We could not even connect to the sewer. Large trees in campsites are a hazard in event of wind or storms.
Apr 10, 2013
It's a great place for a one night layover in travel...not sure there are activities close by that would be of interest to us. Had a great stay as it was exactly what we needed that night.

The hosts are very helpful and accommodating. Nice clean camp.
Apr 05, 2013
Wonderful. We were cold they brought us more heat. They put our fire wood in a dry place when it rained. We're new to camping. Staff were helpful with ideas of things to do during our smoky mountain vacation. We had a spectacular trip! Thanks

Very tight quarters in and out. Office not open all day.
Apr 03, 2013
Owner let his dog run loose. Muddy sites. Hard to get into.

Great camp ground! We loved the standard Kabin (no bathroom) we stayed in and plan to stay in the delux Kabin (1/2 bath) next time we visit.
