Campground Reviews

Jul 28, 2015
This was an amazing campground! We tent camped on the river and our site was large/private/positioned above our neighbors/offered a great view of the rafters, which was actually fun to watch. Super nice showers! Awesome playground. Nice pool. Fun family activities like the outdoor movie Saturday night. Gas station on property! KOA never disappoints!

The stay at this koa was wonderful. We are retired, and new to all this. The staff was pleasant, and most accommodating. We'll be back for sure.

What a fun family place to stay! Instead of the mountains, the kids wanted to play at the playground and in the pool. Our dog was welcomed and had a great time, too! Lots of rain during our stay has convinced me to get a cabin next time instead of staying in our tent! Very friendly staff!

We loved everything about the campground! Our granddaughter had a wonderful time and the playground area is so nice to her it seemed like a "park". Everyday she asked "When are we going up to the park?"

Our family has stayed at KOA since before it even became KOA. This particular time it seemed that more sites had been added squeezing people on top of one another. On top of the closeness of the camp sites our family was told that walking in between campsites is not allowed when coming out of the river from swimming. We have decided that unfortunately we will not be staying here again.

Our weekend getaway!!!

Great amenities, great location, sites are a little closer together than i like , but had a great time camping in townsend on the river...
Jul 27, 2015
Very clean! Nice staff! I only wish they would have told us that they were going to have to do excavation on the site next to ours! Our dog was terrified and it was loud! Maybe we could of been moved to a different site???

We loved the campground and the pool and the river ... while packing up to leave, we were screamed at by a very rude male worker to move our car ... he was an older gentleman with rounded or oval glasses. very rude. maybe come back?

Awesome campground at the doorstep of the smokies! Right on the river with helpful staff and upgraded amenities. Many activities for children. We were booked for 3 days and we stayed for 5. We would have stayed more if we could.

I have stayed here several times, and have recommended to many friends. I left very frustrated as did two friends Cause of frustration-paying $140?per night and when went to office to request replacement of k cups was informed only 4k cups supplied. I said, I understand, but we are staying another night. No additional k cups furnished. Ridiculous! Caused friend to not reserve for future outtin

The primitive cabin was very clean and cozy, and had running water just outside the door... Can't wait to stay there again

We love this campground. It has become an "annual retreat" for our entire family. The owners are making some great improvements.
Jul 21, 2015
Facility and cabins were great. Some stuff was great and appreciated us as Guests. Some staff acted as if we were lucky to be staying here and were generally rude.

Townsend/Great Smokies, TN is one of the best KOAs we have ever stayed at. The staff are all exceedingly friendly, the pool was always clean and the activities in the pavilion were wonderful.
Jul 21, 2015
Like the campground but not happy with busy area our lot was in. Too much traffic with site. Fires were too close for lot sizes.
Jul 21, 2015
I enjoyed my stay but I would rather there be more space between the campsites. The sites were not even big enough to park your vehicle. Showers were great the cabin was small but comfortable but you could at least put a dead bolt lock on the door.

Had a very nice stay. The campground was clean and the staff friendly.
Jul 21, 2015
great
Jul 21, 2015
Wonderful and accommodating customer service! Only negative was the long walk to the bathrooms unless you wanted the porta-potties which were very dirty.
Jul 21, 2015
Had a great time , kids had a blast , the Bible day camp and family night fun was awesome !! Pool and bathrooms super clean ,all staff very friendly ,Def would stay again :)

The bathroom and showers need some kind of cooling system... love that they are roomy, but when you get out of the showers you are soaked with sweat before you can get dressed..
Jul 21, 2015
Amenities great. However too pricey for camping. Sites were extremely small. We had a hard time getting our trailer backed in and our truck still stuck out in the road. Plus they would let us camp near our friends because they were in a tent and we have a camper.

The employees were nice and courteous. The campsite was clean. The pool and playground was great for the kids. There were a few negatives. Our campsite was really cramped. Our neighbors were only 8 ft away. Not much for privacy. There was a sewer smell occasionally from somewhere. Possibly the septic tank lids that were behind our campsite.
