The price for tent camping seemed a little high. Otherwise the campground and staff were great.

Very clean and quality facilities (stayed in the cabins) staff was very curteous and accommodating. Went with my family two young boys for spring break and had a great time

We stay at this KOA several times a year even though it is only minutes from our house. We love the sites directly on the river. We also love the family atmosphere, and the staff is always very friendly and helpful. The campground really looks great with many recent renovations (new furniture, new fire pits, and showers).

Great clean park. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

We loved the new cabins and the way you remodeled the campsites in the center of the park. It feels much less crowded. We have stayed at many KOAs over the years and the Townsend TN KOA is our favorite.

Micky and her staff are very friendly and helpful. I would highly reccommend staying at this campground.

Lovely cabin. Everything was clean outside and in. We had everything we needed and felt very safe. We will come back for sure.

One of the best campgrounds that I have ever stayed at. The bathrooms are clean and the showers hot. Sites are large with fire rings/ grated tops and have river access.

We enjoyed it the staff very friendly, very clean area, just a little too pricey for us since we can get discounts at national parks.

Cute little cabin. Just right being next to the river. Everyone was great, friendly and helpful. We will do this again. Thanks for a neat weekend.

The grounds were so clean. The people were so friendly...ALL the people. The employees obviously took great pride in their jobs and accomodating their guests.

We loved it! Everyone went out of their way to make sure our first outing in our new camper (1st time camper owners) went smoothly! We had a great weekend & are returning in 2 weeks!

We loved our stay as always. We booked another visit for next month.

Friendly staff, clean facilities, and excellent location.

The only negative that I have is, for the price we paid, there should be a better quality mattress. Other than that, we absolutely love the Townsend KOA!! Probably our favorite!

Very clean and beautiful scenery

This was my first stay and first impression of the KOA family. I am greatly impressed. Starting with the initial registration, to the personal assistance given me by staff, I could not have asked for anymore. After settling in one of the staff came by to see if we were settled in and needed anything. The facilities were clean, warm and the staff was first class. You have made a lasting impression.

Loved it! great location on the river!

Great facilities & staff. Price is reasonable. Campground entrance and interior roads are a little tight to maneuver a large RV.
Feb 26, 2016
The staff was exceptionally helpful, and very friendly! We usually stay in State Parks, but hope to visit this campground again. Very clean.
Feb 24, 2016
This was our first RV adventure and what a help Mickie was! We loved this campground - it was kept so immaculately clean, so beautiful. Plus we weren't pulling a car but we could walk to restaurants and attractions.

Iv been there a couple of times and also with my parents as a child and have always loved it and the cabins are nice I will definitely feedback
Feb 16, 2016
We did not had a good experience, water heater was not working correctly I had to wait 35 minutes after my husband to a quick shower also the water didn't drain fast enough. The firewood bundle was very small with a couple of pieces were rotted. TV angle was impossible to watch TV from bed.

Wonderful stay! Beautiful place and very clean and tidy. Convenient to the smokies!

Very quiet site next to the river with great wi-fi service too!
Jan 27, 2016
Very clean and friendly. Really enjoyed the creek view and the peace and quite of the surroundings. Far enough from the attractions of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg but close enough to enjoy it. Really enjoyed being minutes away from all the wonderful trails of the Smokies.

We could have used a heads up about water spickets being off for the winter, we were u sure if the blue ones were safe to drink from. The wifi worked on one side of the cabin, at least that side worked well. Other than that, the staff were friendly and helpful, had a pleasant stay.

What a wonderful campground. We stayed in a deluxe cabin and we had much more than expected. Even watched some wildcard NFL games on ESPN. Cooked some steaks on the grill and had a fire outside. Firewood was even delivered after purchasing it at the local store. Can't say enough about your place. Very pleased.

We are already planning our next trip. The campground was wonderful and right on the river!!! It is just seconds from the Smoky Mountain National Park and in a quiet, laid back town. We LOVED it!!

The deluxe cabin was great. Only suggestion would be to include a sponge mop and a deck broom as it was hard to keep floors clean with the rain etc.
Jan 04, 2016
This is a beautiful campground with a great staff. The location is perfect. Great for both families and/or couples.

Our 1st winter RV camp! Other than the constant fog/mist/drizzle (not in your control!) we had a nice stay. Site was lovely.
