We've stayed at this KOA a few times, but Friday night 3/24 was the worst night away from home I've had in years. I quietly told the attendant during checkout, I killed 15 roaches during the night in DC6. They seemed to be coming from behind the fridge. Other than that everything was fine. Scott D.

I've been staying at the KOA for several years. Each year is better than the last. The owners are committed to making improvements, and it is a great, family-oriented campground. Our children ages 4 - 11 love it. The bathrooms and showers are extremely clean and the property is beautiful and well-maintained. We love staying here.

We love this campground. We have stayed in the cabins and on a campsite with our trailer and it is a GREAT place to stay!

This was my first time out in my RV The lady at the front fest was very nice and accommodating. We were escorted to our site by Adam. This was a great touch. Adam was very polite and even got a blower and cleaned our patio off. Thank you.

It was awesome. The people that are running this campground were amazing. They were constantly checking on everyone making sure things were ok and if we needed anything. They went above and beyond to help our friend get his camper home when his vehicle broke down. Thumbs up KOA Townsend!!!

The small cabin that I stayed in was so very comfortable and cozy. Upon arriving, the heat was on and the whole cabin was warm, which was great because the temperature outside was near freezing. I absolutely loved staying in my cabin and would definitely do it all over again. Great campground and great cabins!

Campsite is centrally located in the Smokies. Staff was pleasant and facilities exceptionally clean. Although campsite was a little pricey, it was worth it. Will definitely return.

Would consider staying here again, except for the high cost. I have stayed at over 150 KOA's, and this was the most expensive. During the busy season I expect to pay the young rate, but during the off season, when many things are not open (pool, playground, etc) I feel it is just a rip off to charge the rate they charged.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Thank you Craig for your most appreciated help you provided.

We were not used to the amazing service we received at a campground. From helping us get into our site to responding to requests, this was hands down our best experience with any campground staff. We are considering KOA wherever we go.

Very helpful staff. Great campground. Clean and very well kept.

The employees were there extremely friendly and courteous. I liked that they were actively improving the appearance-sod, mulch, etc. I was disappointed in the Doggy playground, though. It was covered in sweet gum balls and unusable. One of my Rotties got a sweet gum ball stuck in the pad of his foot-painful! The lots are smaller than we are used to, so we are trying a different site next time.

Mickey was welcoming. I stayed in delux cabin 6. The campground is well maintained, they have a little gas station and convenince shop for all your needs. You won't go wrong staying here!

Our entire stay will be 6-7 weeks and we have really enjoyed the entire campground, especially our various river sites. Quality park with attention to every detail. The staff has been very friendly and helpful. The location is so close to the Smokies which is very desirable, not to mention the great antique shops close by. Looking forward to our return in the fall!

Beautiful place. office closed before it was scheduled to and we couldn't get any help. That and the fact that the bathrooms aren't dewinterized and yet you are already charging premium rates????

As usually, they knock it out of the park. Great facilities and a good value. It always feels familiar with each stay.

I had notated in my reservation that I would be a late arrival, but when I got there at around midnight no reservation package could be found. I had to look back into my email and find site # on confirmation and take a pic of map on office. Very cozy little campground and friendly staff. Beautiful site right on river.

Just a beautiful campground. Cabins are so well kept. My sister left her lights on and battery died. Your grounds staff was so helpful. Thank you,

Another great stay at the KOA Townsend. We stayed in a camping cabin on this trip and were very surprised on the cleanliness. Being on the river was great as well. Highly recommend.
