My stay was great. The staff was extremely helpful and kind. I am already planning a return visit. The only drawback was the WiFi was spotty but that was not why I was camping anyhow so it was not a big factor.

It was a good stay but the prices are too high for us to stay there very often when there are other choices in the area for less. We thought we'd give KOA a try since we haven't been to that park in a while. Great staff!

A bit pricey.

We had a great stay very nice and clean camp ground. We did let them know at time of booking that we had a 32ft travel trailer plus the truck and 2 motorcycles. We had a campsite that barley fit our trailer and we had to park our vehicle across the park where we were unable to keep an eye on them. They also advertised free WIFI was never able to connect to it.

The only issue I had was when my husband came to visit for a couple of hours on saturday he was not allowed to drive in, he was made to park accross the street and he was charged nearly $5.00. That would be my only down fall about coming back to your campground for another stay.

Everything was great except internet service was a little spotty. Cell coverage (At&t) was almost non-existent. There were also occasions when there was a lot of noise outside early in the morning (6-7 a.m.)from garbage trucks, lawn maintenance, etc. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Facilities were very nice. We had a concrete pad with a fire pit...we will likely stay again.

We love this KOA; and our family stays there often! And, we noticed they've made improvements in the playground & some sites; Very nice! Too bad our son is now too old for that new playground @ 15. It's Beautiful.

People were very friendly and the amenities I were all clean and nice.

Love the sound of the nearby creek! The only problem is the rebuilding of some of the sites made backing into them difficult.

Beautiful tent site on the river, very clean, friendly staff, quiet, family friendly, clean showers and bathrooms. :)
Sep 23, 2013
Everything good, except the bathrooms, which are very poor. We had to use porta potties. They were filthy.

We did not feel like we got the offer of help we needed when we had all the problems with our camper.And when we complained about that steel sticking up I felt like you did not care that we just wanting special treatment.But we felt it .was dangerous for our grandkids whow would be running around.

Campground was well maintained. Bathrooms were great. And the staffing was wonderful.

THE ROOM WAS NICE AND CLEAN AND EVERYONE WAS NICE. THE ONLY THING THAT WAS BAD WAS THE BED. IT MUST HAVE BEEN FROM NOAHS ARK. EVERY MOVE IT MADE A NOISE AND SAGGED IN THE MIDDLE. IT WAS TOO LATE AT NIGHT TO FIND ANOTHER PLACE SO I JUST TUFFED IT OUT. THE NEXT TIME I WILL SIT OR LAY ON THE BED FIRST.

great weather, cabin clean, comfortable. Playground great for kids. movie a little scary for younger kids. Had to take 2 year old back to cabin. Probably G rated movies would be better for families. Of all the KOA's we've stayed in we like this one the best. Love all the trees and the smell of campfires. We'll be back next year if all goes as planned.

Beautiful campground very close to the Smokies; clean facilities; friendly staff; terrible WiFi and virtually no cellphone service from AT & T or Verizon

A Quality campground and experience starts at the top and trickels down. Because of General Mgr Mark Chipperfield's high expectation of excellence in camper experience personal character, the staff care and campground facilities are some of the best around!

The deluxe cabin was very clean. It was extremely small for the price, but we still enjoyed our stay there. We really enjoyed all of the activities for kids and adults on Saturday. We would definitely stay there again :D

There is nothing negative to say about the KOA in Townsend, Tn. Clean, lots of activities, and a friendly helpful staff. My grandchildren had a great time and already have reservations for two times next year. We loved everything about it and you won't be sorry for staying here.

we have stayed in many rv parks this one is among the best

Our stay this visit was great just like in the past. My only concern was the dumpsters were overflowing by Tuesday morning when we left.
