The staff were friendly and helpful, everything was very clean and well maintained. It was a little noisy being so close to interstate but other than that, wonderful place.

The campground was the cleanest I have ever stayed at, but the highway traffic was very loud.

Owner's and staff are always great. Nice to stay out of the hustle and bustle of the Gatlinburg area. Bert is one of the nicest people I've ever met. Will be back.

Convent to the smokies but away from the traffic and congestion that is pigeon forge and Gatlingburg. Very wooded and peaceful at night for us tenters

The campground was really clean. Clean restrooms, pool was large and nice. You can hear road noise from the freeway at night but other than that it was great.

This KOA along with the area have clearly seen better days.Our pitch was facing a RV grave yard, which seem to be used as spare parts. The site was on a hill, tents at the bottom, a 6:30 rainstorm turned into a river. The pool was small and built in the 1930"s and looked very old. On the way inyou are faced with a large RV for sale, this along the RV grave yard gives this place a rundown feel abou

Very nice staff. Friendly and willing to help in any way. We are tent campers and we enjoyed our stay. The only recommendation I have would be to install a camp kitchen.

If the frogs would shut up.... nice facility, just enough light at night. The only problem I had was that the shower dressing areas are tiny and there are huge two-step stools in there to put your stuff on. I almost tripped over mine twice. Get a picture of the still. It has one of those cutouts you stand behind so you can be a moonshiner with a rifle.

too noisy by I40, but a friendly small well-maintained campground.

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).

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!

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.

Clean facilities and good people. It's my first time at a KOA but I will be back.

The only issue was that we were only staying for less than a day. Can't wait to return and stay longer!

Great price for staying so close to the Smokeys. Pool was excellent, they even left the washroom open for a bit extra so we could get our clothes out of the dryer. Thanks KOA!

The freeway noise was a bit too much at this camp site. The bath and shower house was very clean!

The pool, bathrooms, and showers were clean. However, when I was walking to the main office, one of the workers approached me and told me that he thought about running me over with his truck but decided not to. I was very uncomfortable around him and would not recommend this KOA to anyone.

Beverley and her husband who checked us in went out of their way to be sure we had a superior experience. Lovely location with lots of trees. CLEAN bathrooms and showers, thank you!

Park was very clean. Campsite was very small. No room for a large tent and a car. Interstate noise is insane. Keeps you awake at night.

The staff was AMAZING!!! We stayed in a tent amd it was quite cold. We had a space heater so that made it work out. Everyone was very friendly, the grounds were clean and very kept up. We are already talking about when we can go back! Might have the rest of the family in michigam meet us there. We live in florida so it is a nice half way point. Thank you for making it such a GREAT stay!!!! :)

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

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.

I will be complaining to the authorities over the animal cruelty that we witnessed a KOA staff member commit. The skinny redneck in the yellow hat picked up a little dog by its leash (hanging it by its neck) and slammed it down on the ground.The rest of the staff was very helpful, but we couldn't overlook the abusive behavior of this one KOA employee. This is not a safe place for your pets!!!!!!!!

We thought the campground was very nice and well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our one and only complaint would be the size of the tent sites, but we would definitely stay again.

Friendly staff, great location. Would recommend anyone interested in traveling near Newport, TN stay here.

Good clean place to stay while on way to another destination. Not as close to things like the Smokeys as I thought. Advertised as a smokey mountain KOA not really.

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.

Electricity was too far from site, picnic table moldy, price was very fair and kept me from complaining. Tent sites are way over priced except here.

Everything was good except some pets roaming during sleeping hours
