Tent Reviews

We reserved a specific tent site and were told that it would be ready for us. We had to do a late check in, about 7:30pm. When we got to our site, there were belongings already there (mail, drinks, backpack, etc.). There was no after hours number to call, so we moved sites. The next morning when the office opened, we told them what had happened. We got no discount or apology. Never staying again.

This is a wonderful campground. We stayed along the river and walked our dags in the park right next door. Super friendly folks here.

Stayed 1 night at at a tent site with no hook ups. Nice spot by the river, bathrooms and showers were clean. Good place to stay!

The river that runs behind this location smells like open sewer, and there is a sign about the fecal matter in the river. This is a terrible problem! I also would not recommend this as a camping location, since I prefer camping in its more primitive fashion, and this location is in the city.

The staff was very friendly and the pool and bath houses were very clean. The contaminated river was totally unexpected since it didnt say on website. We tented it for the week, but heard bad comments about poor parking sites for motor homes and sign was kinda hidden and not lit up. People were passing it up then having to find a place to turn their rigs around.

Its quite noisy- motorbikes coming in and out at all hours and garbage collectors at 3am across the road. Wifi reception not great. Toilets filthy and smelly. Staff not approachable. Only one bin site very far away from non powered tent sites. But close to main street and dollywood etc.

The first thing we noticed upon opening the car door was the horrid fecal smell from the "river" along the tent sites that is polluted with sewer. All-night traffic and loud heavy equipment use further polluted our environment with too much light and too much noise. I feel misled into believing I would have a quiet, woodsy tenting experience. the pool opens too late and closes too early.

We stayed seven days. If I visit pigeon forge again, I think I will check out another campground. I realize this campground is for short term stay and right off the strip, but it would have been nice to stay somewhere, where if we wanted to stay at the campground for a day or two we wouldn't be bored. Need more to block light from across the river. Cleaner restrooms.

Riverside tent site too noisy and unlevel. Sites too small. Back bath house needs updating - too cramped. Gotta stand in toilet to get stall door opened. Shower stalls too small. Bath house ventilation and drainage poor. Campground is clean. People friendly. Just cramped and noisy location.

I only stayed one night, but the restroom/shower area was clean and well maintained. That is my biggest issue with a lot of campgrounds. I was very pleased with how the staff presented themselves too.

Stayed at the same camp ground in March and it was not as crowded,but it rained a lot both times.Rest rooms were not quite as clean this time, but it was crowded.

Great campground!

Pool was wonderful. Sites were well maintained. Only thing I would change is having a sink for dishwashing closer to the tent area.

We had a great time at this KOA. The staff was extremely friendly and the campgrounds were kept extremely clean. I would have liked to seen a nicer fire ring with a built in grill surface, like I have used at other sites.

Our tent was by the small river but right across from us was a main road and motel. We were woken up to a dump truck at the motel. The facilities were nice but the campground wasn't what we wanted or expected.

roads within campground are tight for buses/RVs

We were given a spot that was too steep to park on, especially with the grass being wet. We asked for a change in location for the next night and it was granted. However, when we arrived at the new spot it had already been taken by someone else. It was too late at night to make an issue out of it but we ended up just trying to find somewhere that was not taken. Overall not a great experience.

The campsite was beautiful. However, no staff was present after 9pm. Cars and trucks were constantly moving in and out during quiet time and we had noisy neighbors who swam in the water behind our tent chasing ducks most of the night. It was hard to get decent sleep the two nights we were there.

We stayed at a tent site next to the river. What they do not tell you is that it is a very small river and there is a very busy street on the other side of the river. All the photos they show do not show the area and well Dollywood is pretty much across the street. This is NOT a mountain camping place. The pool is very nice and the bathhouse was clean.
