Great location in Townsend. One of the cleanest KOA's I have ever been to. Great friendly staff. They were very accomadating. Super clean laundry with new units. Nice pool. Clean campgrounds. The riverfront location is absolutely amazing!! Saw people tubing down the river which was very fun to watch. Super quiet nights! Lots of fish in the river. Beautiful butterflies everywhere!Great stay!

We love this KOA & camp here often in our camper and in the Deluxe Cabins. Stayed in a regular Camping Cabin this time & it was nice. Ours was a 2 rm, on the river. Bed was comfty despite what I'd heard, but having tent camped in my past, I was prepared! Cabins have TV, dorm fridge & AC. A ceiling fan in main room would be nice; had 1 in back room.

My family & I would like to say Thank you to the entire Townsend KOA staff! Our second night I was rushed to the hospital for a kidney stone,the staff at KOA went above & beyond to ensure I was ok & had everything I needed. They comforted my wife & made certain she was ok. I was in excruciating pain for our whole stay but the KOA staff let me use a lounge chair at the cabin 2 sit by th fire & relx

The cabins on the river had lots of activity so hard to rest at night. Also needed a sink in bathroom and somewhere to store clothes. Bed very difficult to make as there was not enough room to get behind it.

Great location, very pet friendly, good staff, would stay there again. Improve? Store closed too early (before 8), literature on local event provided was inaccurate re dates.

We were part of the Egg Rally in April, and the campground is lovely. They really made this the best of all the campgrounds we have held this rally. The sites are very close together compared to what we are used to on our usual camping trips, but the landscaping is fabulous, the staff really friendly. Clean facilities. Very nice campground.

We loved being right on the river, the kids loved the playground, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The only downside is the spots are so close together, and there needs to be more strict enforcement of the quiet nighttime hours. We had some pretty noisy neighbors that were playing loud music and talking in loud voices and had bright lights on at 1 o'clock in the morning, making it very

I have been visiting this campground on and off for 10 years, as always it was a delight and the staff is always friendly and inviting. This was the first time staying in one of the cabins, beautiful and accommodating. I love all the new features and changes to the park, had a wonderful stay and will be back next year for sure.

Helpful and friendly staff. Clean cabin facing the river. The only suggestion I would give is please leave extra trash bags in the cabin. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

The cabin was nice. The outside needed to have spider webs and wasp nest cleaned out and we did'nt know we had a water site on the side. Need to have bathrooms in cabin area.
