Known as "The Peaceful Side of the Great Smoky Mountains," the Townsend/Great Smokies KOA is a tranquil place to visit.

One of the premier campgrounds in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, the Townsend/Great Smokies KOA is surrounded by the mountains and beautiful forests. Nestled up against the Little River, this campground provides a great setting for relaxing, putting your feet up and enjoying nature after a hard day of hiking or shopping.

All of our campsites have picnic tables and campfire rings. For great camping try our full hookup level  grassy sites.  We have free cable TV, 30 or 50 amp service, and paved patios. Our water/electric and tent camping site areas range from semi-sunny to heavily wooded and secluded.

Don't want to rough it? Book now to reserve one of our cozy log camping cabins or deluxe cabins. In our specialty accommodations, you may not even feel like you're roughing it at all!

Additional amenities include a laundry, swimming pool, two very clean bathhouses, a modern playground for the little ones, a covered pavilion equipped with a large barbecue pit, horseshoe pits, a basketball court, wireless internet, bicycle rentals and an arcade.

Outdoor recreational opportunities are aplenty. The beautiful 5-mile long Townsend Bike Trail begins and ends just across the road from our campground. The campground borders the Little River, which flows out of the National Park. The river is excellent for swimming or tubing and is well known for great trout fishing. The Tennessee Wildlife Resource Association stocks the river from our 1,650 feet of river frontage every two weeks during the summer. Tubes are available for rent through our Welcome Center.
