Place is amazing clean, friendly and close to town. Would definitely stay again.

This campground needs some maintenance, the sites were very unlevel, all gravel areas uneven with washed out spots. Cabins very close together and not really any place to park or to turn car around. Lots of road noise, but would probably return to use cabin in off season again but not during busier times of year.

Love this place! We stayed in one of the kabins. It was awesome. Bathrooms were very clean. We will definitely be back.

We found everything as expected, and the staff worked very well to accommodate our group!

It was my first time in Tennessee. The restroom and cabins were clean. The location was good. The staff was accommodating and helpful. I'd absolutely stay here again. T

Very friendly and helpful staff. Flexible with changes. One of our favorite locations.

The only complaint I had was the noise that you can hear from the interstate that is nearby. We had a great stay here.

Utilized KOAs all the way across the country when we moved from NC to AZ. It's the way to go with pets. Had a great experience.

Bathrooms were clean but run down. Management was rude when we asked about the "free wifi" not working properly. Told my husband to "deal with it". It was a cute KOA, just run down. We won't be coming back.

Very little human produced noise - good. Cabin good. Many areas not mowed. No activities schedule or format. Interstate 40 noise a constant.

Employees were amazing. Even after office was closed they made sure we were doing ok. Even came and started our fire for us. Nice people descent location.

The Kabin was convenient to the bathhouse, which was in very good condition. We arrived late and everything was in place for our stay. We enjoyed it.

Everything was great except the pool. It was green. Also, people were smoking in the bathroom.

This was the worst campground I have stayed at. Dirty high grass and many locals have made this their home. Did not feel safe. Very disappointed and not at all pleased with this KOA

Amazing! Hoping to make it an annual place for the Seay Family Reunion.

The air conditioner in the cabin kept shutting off like it had a thermostat on it but it was still hot in the cabin. I didn't realize the pool was open to the public & the bathroom was constantly dirty. The wood we purchased was wet & didn't burn very well. Never saw a snack bar and there wasn't very much to buy in the store. The KOA in Cherokee has a lot more amenities and costs about the same.

The air conditioner in my cabin would not stay on. There was only one bathroom for the whole camp and the campground allowed locals to swim in their pool fire a fee so the bathroom was constantly occupied.

Extremely friendly staff. Very nice campground. Plenty for kids to do. Nice campsites. Fun place to stay.

This is a perfect place to stay when you just need a place to bunk at night after being out in the area during the day. So many great tourist areas are an easy drive from here.

The staff at smoky mountain koa was absolutely amazing! We arrived extremely early and they were very accommodating in any way they could find possible. The cabin was just what we needed to get some rest and the kids enjoyed the playground! Showers were hot and clean. Great campground!!

I enjoyed my stay at KOA very much. the people were very friendly and helpful. their store wasn't very supplied, but town was just down the street.It was very quiet. I really enjoyed it.

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.

Clean and neat. Staff was very friendly

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.

Facilities were well maintained and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

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.
Sep 24, 2013
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.
Sep 18, 2013
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.

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.

The staff were awesome, very helpful. Beverly was the greatest. Kabins were clean beds not too comfortable. I loved the first one with a comode and sink.
