Campground Reviews

Oct 21, 2013
The laundry was expensive but the machines were new and worked well. There was a lot of movement in and out with daily campers.

I appreciate the attention you give to the bathroom/shower facilities. Kabin needs a thorough top-to-bottom cleaning. Many cobwebs visible; to many for comfort. Shows that kabin hasn't been cleaned in a while.

Very nice campground and the bathrooms were awesome. People were very friendly and helpful. Nice weekend in the smokies and Gatlinburg area.

Nice location. Great to be close to all the area attraction but far enough away to be peaceful. Great staff as always.

We were just passing through so didn't use your facilities, although we enjoyed walking around the pond and around the campground. A very pretty setting....pines smelled wonderful, too.

Just an overnight stay but we found it to be very comfortable and a very well maintained and managed camp ground. Friendly staff, very helpful. Clean showers and bath facilities, we wished we had more time to enjoy the camp and will difinetly stop by again on our next trip in the area.

Kabin was fun size for two. Pool water was green which must contaminate the whole filter system if not kept chlorinated yeara round. The bathhouse facilities were quite pleasant. Playground equipment adequate for up to 6 or 7 year olds. No deluxe cabins.

Very nice setting. Adequate spacing between rigs. None of the head-to-toe parking that many KOAs have where you have to share a patio space. I only stayed one night in a motorhome. Pleasant check-in.

Wonderful campground. The people running it are very helpful. Bathroom and shower, the cleanest I have ever seen. Great job.

Slightly run down campground, but very pleasant staff. Bathrooms and laundry nice and easy to get to. We had bees in a tree trunk adjacent to our site and they immediately took care of the issue. We stayed 3 nights and used the campground as a base to explore the Smokies. VERY narrow bridge crossing a creek when entering the campground.

Very nice KOA. We Cabin camp and ours was very nice. Though WIFI in our cabin was sometime difficult to keep connected we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff was very cordial and helpful.

I found everyone to be very friendly and helpful and that means a lot when you have been traveling all day and just want to stop and rest. The campsite was pretty level and we had a full hookup. Everything worked out just great. Thanks!

Badly needs updating. Person at front desk just stared at me after saying hello. Mattress was very, very hard in Kamping Kabin. We will not be back.

This is an excellent KOA in an area close to attractions and conveniently located for stopovers as well.

Great place. Clean. Nice staff. Only draw back is the highway noise. But one I the best KOA's I've stated in. Feels like you stepped out into the wilderness. Quite beautiful camp site. Could not ask for more.

We stayed there for 8 nights and were pleased with the facilities. We were able to travel to many places in the area to do genealogy research. We would choose to stay there again if we were in the area.

The campground was clean and well managed. It was family oriented and even though I travel alone, I appreciate this. The staff was excellent.

Shower area small no bench, dog area did not have any bags.

this koa sits directly adjacent to the freeway and an off ramp. the roar of highway traffic and trucks decelerating is nearly constant and quite distracting. the small pool was green when I was there, yet still open and not being treated. the 3 showers are very small with nowhere to sit, additionally there is very little water pressure. for $21 a night I would stay anywhere else.

People that run this KOA are very friendly! Pool was green and we didn't go in at all! Nothing offered at KOA for entertainment. All campers stayed inside campers - didn't talk to anyone else. Will not return most likely.

A bit buggy - for some reason the mosquitoes and gnats were really obnoxious so make sure you've got some DEET, but otherwise it was really great! It was clean and had lots of room for the dogs to go walk around. The staff was really friendly and it was conveniently located, too. I really liked this KOA!
Aug 27, 2013
Nice campground nestled in the thick forest close to many attractions. I have stayed here three times and enjoyed each time. Will come again.

We used to love this KOA and traveled there from Cherokee/Maggie Valley, NC area because we prefer camping in this area. But now, the pool is not fit to swim in - filthy & very green. Everything else is fine & staff is very nice. We left Saturday & drove about 40 miles round trip to pay to swim at a campground in Cosby, TN because no way were we going to get in the pool at the KOA. Fix the pool.
