This is my favorite KOA of all of the ones I have stayed in. The scenery is excellent and they are always making improvements to make it even better. They staff is extremely friendly and very helpful.

From the owner Mark, down to Jeremiah, Adam, Al & the ladies of the office - this is the nicest place. Our home away from home. See you all next month.

I found the staff to be really friendly and helpful.The bathrooms and showers were always clean. The landscaping of some of the sites was awesome and it was my understanding that the remaining sites would eventually be done as well if this is true and once complete i'm not sure you could find better!

This was like a parking lot with gravel. We couldn't put out our awning because on how close the campers are. they had No parking area on your site.

The 400 character limit is not enough to explain how much we enjoyed this KOA. Beautiful riverfront campsites, super clean bathrooms, separate private (clean) showers, well maintained grounds, friendly staff, and a convenient arrangement for tubing the river. We will stay here again if we return to the Smokies!

Everything was great the tubing, the cabin on the river , and the snakes. We liked the GM he was very nice and friendly, but some of the lady's at the front desk not all but some, acted like we were intruding on there property. Being in the tourist business the idea is to treat each camper as if you are trying to get them to come back. Some of you gals should take the lead from your GM.

friendly staff, great location and very clean facilitys and campgrounds

Staff was friendly. We like the fact it has a dog park to allow pets to run w/o a lease. Rates higher than the next door, however we can reserve a site w/o a 7 day reservation. Disappointed in the Wi-Fi. It was very weak and came and went. I rely on it for business.

We LOVED this campground! The only constructive criticism would be to not bury the firepits. It is so hard to maintain a good cooking fire when you can't get airflow down in the firepit.

Stayed in Deluxe Cabin. The mattresses were awful. The sheets for the bunk beds were not fitted and it was almost impossible to make the beds. And then, by morning, the sheets were all pulled out and the bed had to be remade. Bad sleeping environment. Cabin could have used a sink, only had a bathroom sink. Not worth the price we paid for the deluxe cabin. Should have stayed in a motel.

Very good management, helped us level our RV, and gave helpful information for the campsite. Will return often.

We had a great weekend as always at the KOA in Townsend, TN. This was our first time using the camping cabin (12) and we enjoyed it very much - especially as it rained. We did have two issues - the front door handle was broken and would not stay closed unless we locked it. We were also very close to the road and could hear traffic. Would choose a different cabin next time.

As always had a great time, wonderful staff friendly and helpful. But wish someone had told me I would be parked under a pine tree. Sap has ruined a brand new camper, they said it was the only one available for my days, hope they cut it down.
