Asked for a more private cabin and was accommodated with no problem. Clean. Comfortable.

We stayed in a cabin and got completely covered in chigger bites. Confirmed by the doctor today. Unfortunately I would not go and stay at any of these cabins ever again.

When making the reservation for a deluxe cabin we were led to believe that one was available on a late arrival found that it was not true no linens were available and we could not remain there so requested a refund of the fees.

We had a late check in and the cabin was supposed to have been left unlocked and key inside. This did not happen and we ended up sleeping in our car.

Off season campers. Disappointed we were so far away from attractions. Our fault did not investigate thoroughly. Would recommend to RV owners. Bert and Gini very accommodating. Stacey great help. Very clean cabins, managers worked with our botched plans. Please negate comments dated:5/8-5/11 Very accommodating.

Nice cabin, the half bath was very convenient

It was their first time to Tennessee. We were really happy about the cabin with the bath and one half. The place was quiet at night. I would recommend it to my friends who had a recreational vehicle. The spaces are at a reasonable price. The employees were very friendly and personable. And extremely helpful. Bart and Gini were great hosts.

It was forecasted to rain all night, upgraded to a cabin from a tent site. Was very nice. Traveling through the are, would have liked to stay longer.

We love the Newport KOA! We have stayed here once before and even in the same cabin! The grounds are always kept very nice and the bathrooms and showers are very clean. The entire staff is super friendly all the time, and went out of their way to tell us about some local attractions we were looking for. Our cabin was spotless when we arrived, and it and it is landscaped very nicely.

Nice and clean. Unfortunately highway is close and noisy traffic. The grass really needed to be mowed also.

Cigarette smoke in a non-smoking cabin. We got in after hours and couldn't change cabins. Called next morning to report it and manager didn't try to make it right. Also said they knew about it and previous renters were smokers and that they did a thorough cleaning. Not thorough enough. Cigarette butt found inside the cabin by our bed. Overall the bathrooms and cabins were clean.

The staff was extremely helpful, liked the small feel campground, only downside as the fire ban due to the TN wild fires. Would definitely stay again.

I was disappointed with this particular KOA, the office closed at six...who does that on a weekend? We arrived just as they were closing. We were able to but one stack of wood but probably would have bought more had they been open to do so.i understand that it is getting close to being off season, but this is a campground and the office should have been open longer.

This is where to stay if you want to be near Smoky Mountains Park without the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowd in Gatlinburg or other campgrounds right near the park entrances. It is only about 25 minutes from the main entrance, and the prices are great & it is quiet and clean. The staff is very nice, and the campground is set up well. The KOA isn't the draw as much as the surrounding area..

I stayed in one of the deluxe cabins at this campground. The cabin itself was very clean and comfortable, with a private restroom, heat and A/C, and comfortable beds--definitely worth the price of the cabin! Check-in was extremely easy, even though I arrived at the cabin around 11pm. The owners were very pleasant and accomodating. Would definitely return!

Very great staff, I will be back

Clean, quiet, will definitely stay there again.

We have stayed at many KOA's over the year s. We have never had a problem with ants like we did here. The ants destroyed our evening meal the first night there. There were even ant traps inside our cabin!!!

Kamp ground overall is very nice. We stayed for 3 nights in one of the Kabins that had a 1/2 bath which was much more convenient for us. The only real complaint would have been the mattress on the bed, which is very thin. Next time I will bring along an air mattress to set on top to make it a little more comfortable. It is convenient to Pigeon Forge and the smokey mountains. Will visit again.

The cabin itself was nice. However, we did not stay once we saw the campground. It is ON the highway, not in the Smokey Mountains, the bathrooms were far from our site. It was not in the woods or off the beaten path at all. We did not feel safe staying with our three kids. VERY disappointing. It was our first KOA experience and likely our last.

I just recently started using koa and every campground I go to my opinion gets higher and higher. It's impossible to beat the quality of the cabins for the price

I am constantly staying at KOAs across the country. This was a great one. The lady that checked us in was extremely helpful and very nice. The campground was spotless. The cabin fantastic. Great job!!

Very nice cabins

We had a wonderful time staying in K55. Staff are very friendly and helpful!
Jul 11, 2016
We stayed in one of the small kabins without a bathroom. It was clean and comfortable as were the bathrooms. It is very convenient to I40 and was perfect to relax in after a day in the smokies. Would have preferred more than one outlet, but was perfect otherwise. Will definitely stay again.

Everyone was really nice!! Disappointed the pool was broken:(

The cabin had bedbug infestation.
Jul 01, 2016
The cabin was great. The half bath was convenient. The bathrooms and laundry were clean. The pool was great too. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My only complaint was the amount of smokers in close proximity to the pool, bathrooms and laundry room. Even in the pool, we always could smell the person smoking around the building.

The people at KOA were great! And we made some wonderful friends- both 2-legged and 4-legged! And watching the birds and rabbits and the beautiful fireflies play as we sat in the porch swing was so enjoyable! Thanks, Ya'all!!!

The staff was wonderful and everything was clean and comfortable. The only negative was we stayed in cabin 77 and the road dead ends and everybody had trouble getting in and out and not enough parking very tight
Jun 13, 2016
Nice staff, clean cabins and bath house. Would stay again if I come through that area
Jun 12, 2016
We had a great time at this KOA. Our stay kept us pretty busy most days, but evenings were at the camp by the fire. The only critique is full size picnic tables would have been nice. Usually we bring a fold up but decided not to since we were traveling quite a distance from home. But otherwise, a very good stay!
Jun 12, 2016
Very nice campground. The staff was very friendly and helpful,
May 31, 2016
My only concern would be the ants in the cabin other than that it was great, good location, great staff and very affordable and other characters and I did not need to reserve 3 nights due to the holiday weekend

staff was very nice, bathrooms clean, camp quiet, air in cabin worked, stars because no hot water in cabin, no camp kitchen for washing dishes,etc, a screen door and standard size picnic table would be nice too
