We were there over Thanksgiving. It snowed and it was beautiful in Townsend. Employees and friendly and very helpful. A little tight for RV's. We stayed with ya'll 2 years ago and it was hard to maneuver our Motorcoach. Clean facility. Love the dog park. Thanks.

We went for Thanksgiving week and it snowed. We had a site by the river and listening to the currents was so peaceful. Thankful for the leash free dog area and the basketball goal was a hit with the kids. It is not far am from Cade's Cove. We spotted lots of deer. Also not too far from Pigeon Forge and Gatlingburg. Traffic was not bad at all. It has a store and they can refill your propane gas.

We stayed right on the river in our motor home in November, chilly weather, but sun was out. We loved the site, one of the best we've stayed in. EVER! The staff was very nice and we loved it there. We will be back.

We are so happy we chose to stay at the Townsend KOA! We arrived at night and Al helped us back in our travel trailer . All the staff were friendly and helpful. The spaces are close together but off season we noticed people were given their space by not assigning spaces right next to one another! Good job Townsend KOA !

The staff were very friendly and helpfull. Restrooms were always in tip top shape. The new playground was the highlight for my two boys. Worst part about our visit was when we had to leave.

The only problem is wifi did not come in I was told that you had to be closer to the front for it to work? They should tell you this up front!

I had read other comments prior to our visit. I found none of the negative comments to be of much concern. We had a good time and all staff members were very helpful. Thank you. We plan to be back in May.

I loved it! 126 was the perfect spot for a tent right on the water it was so beautiful. It was nice and quiet and the showers were very hot. It's not as close to Gatlinburg as we thought but I'm glad we chose it because it was so beautiful and near the mountians. We don't have kids but it was very family friendly but also great for just us. We will definitely go back!

We love this campground, we have been coming here for twenty years. The only thing that could be improved is the cleaning of the bathrooms. The stalls are dusty and there are cob webs on the beams above. The showers have some mold/mildew in them on the walls, floors, and shower curtains. I have recommended this campground in the past because of the clean bathrooms, which is very important!

Beautiful campground, meticulously maintained, Friendly staff, very helpful when a laundry problem was encountered. Definitely one of our favorite places to enjoy God's creation.
