Go hear every year. Love this campground with so much to do !

Wonderful campground and even more important, friendly and helpful staff. A1

We love this campground! The only thing I would recommend is putting in another bath house closer to the tent sites. I just cannot bring myself to use those port-a-johns. Otherwise, we LOVED our experience and cannot wait to come back!
Jul 17, 2013
Campsites are a little close but everything was clean and wonderful!

This is my third year staying at this KOA facility, and appreciate all the help everyone offered to me related to my trailer tire that had the bearings broken. Especially Jimmy (Jmbo).

We had a wonderful time and wish we could have stayed longer. Have stayed there many times over the past 20 some years and seen many changes, all of them good. Hope to be able to stay longer next time. Thanks for your help while we were there. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. Thanks

Loved this campground and the wonderful tent sites! The services were awesome and the place was clean! They were responsive to our report of a yellow jacket nest close to our campsite. Would definitely return!

KOA was an extremely clean, family friendly campground~ however, the price of the DC was pretty high. We were also with a couple of other friends who have their own campers and they told us the cost was extremely high...they felt it should have been closer to the $80 range.

KOA Townsend is my grandchildren's favorite place to camp.
Jul 15, 2013
Loved the campground. It was not overly crowded and is close enough to get to several area attractions, but still have some privacy. Thanks

I love this campground! Everyone is so nice and helpful. Can't wait to come back!
Jul 14, 2013
We had an awesome stay! The cabin was clean and very close to GSMNP Townsend entrance (less than half a mile). We will be back!
Jul 14, 2013
The stay was a almost perfect. However your prices are too high for most. We do not wish to change sites. We have been camping there for over fifteen years and would like to contiue. Help us, please.

Nice place and very friendly and helpful staff. Spaces too close together and constant barking of dogs don't make for peaceful stay.

My husband and I have never been involved in camping as a recreational activity; therefore, our children and grand children have not been around the camping community either. This was our first week at a KOA, and all members of our family really enjoyed it. We will probably return next summer to enjoy another week with our camping relatives. The Townsend, TN KOA personnel is wonderful.

Staff is excellent and helpful. Beautiful campground. Thank you for all the church sponsored activities. Keep it up! They are very much appreciated, are very fun, and family friendly. THANK YOU! Suggestion..For safety sake please install more lighting by back cabins and primitive areas. One flush toilet would also be appreciated. Bathhouse too far away.

Great location in Towsend TN at the KOA to take family/kids! Absolutely loved the pavillion activities. We have camped & cabined both in Towsend ,TN KOA..both times loved it..cabin beds are hard (hint) bring air mattress. Love the Townsend KOA Friendly staff!!!!!
Jul 13, 2013
Narrow sites. Was afraid to have a fire due to close units and vehicles. Wi Fi very slow. At 5:30 am had try numerous times to get on to get mail.
Jul 13, 2013
Great location. Church sponsored activities are fun and family friendly for all ages. Great staff who are always helpful. Cabin beautiful and comfortable. Only problem was campers in cabin beside us were heavy smokers. Could not sit out on our front porch.
Jul 13, 2013
Great family fun!!! Great place for kids!! Bible camps in the morning and evening activities that the whole family can enjoy!!! We have stayed at Townsend KOA more times then I can count... It's awesome when you set up your campsite and the kids are happy staying at the campground... They actually get upset when we leave to do other activities and then we have to be back by 8:00😊
Jul 13, 2013
Good location.

We stayed right on the river in a camping cabin and had a blast. My two boys caught their first trout ever right out in front of cabin. There is so much to do in the campground like swimming and tubing and just down the street you can ride horses. We finished off each day with s'mores at the camp fire. This was our 2nd trip and it was even better than the 1st. The kids talk about all year.

We had an awesome adventure! So many fireflies! It was magical!
Jul 12, 2013
Been staying there for about 13 years. Still great but we do miss the store selling breakfast and the fudge store not being open daily. Love the lodges and the staff is very friendly!
Jul 12, 2013
We love the Townsend KOA!! There are so many activities. We never get bored! Going back in a couple weeks!
Jul 12, 2013
Wonderful campground! The staff was very friendly. They were there around the sites in case their help was needed with anything. They always had a smile on their face. When I go to the Smokies, I will stay here from now on. I can't wait to go back. Very clean park!

My 4 grandchildren & I stayed at KOA and had a great time. We plan to come back every summer! The two room cabin was perfect for our needs. Having the refrigerator made it so much easier and the air conditioner made our sleeping more pleasant. The campground is so nice and clean,especially the bathrooms/showers. We loved the day/night activities and the playground was awesome. Thank you.
Jul 10, 2013
We had a wonderful time even through there was a lot of rain. When the threat of severe weather was likely, the staff notified all available campers so they could be prepared. In all the campgrounds I have been to this has never happened. I wish the rates were more affordable.

We stayed during July 4th this year and it rained and rained and rained, of course no fault of KOA. As always the staff was great we decided to leave early due to all the rain and they gladly gave us a refund. We love KOA!!!!!

Helpful and friendly staff. Clean facilities. Good location for Cade's Cove loop.

Wonderful, but wet

Although your rates are probably not out of line with going rates for this area, We feel the value of our expenditure was significantly low. We will probably do something Different next year.
