Having 1 bath house so far away was a little troubling but everything was good. Cabins were accommodating. Enjoyed our stay.

It is a beautiful campground and they are always improving it. The people that work there go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable and carefree as they possibly can.

we do not like the changes you made to what we call the beach area. it took away playing space for children.

The bathrooms were dirty all weekend but clean during the week. The playground and sites on the river were great. The location was central to the hikes and activities we did which was nice.

Townsend KOA is our new campground!! The women taking our reservation were friendly, helpful and patient. They went the extra mile to insure our camper would fit and that we would be comfortable before we made the reservation. The campground has a million activities going on and EVERYONE was so nice and helpful! We camp alot all over the US and the employees/grounds at Townsend KOA are the BEST!

We were really impressed with the changes that you have made over the winter. The new grass area by the river side looks great. (Please install the swings) The kids area looks like so much fun my wife wanted to go play on it!! We'll keep coming back!!

The only problem was site 32 the waste water connection is too high. Townsend KOA is our choice of campgrounds. We camp here at a minimum of 4 times a year.
May 13, 2013
we have stayed here for many years and really enjoy it each time. It's a great place to ride bikes and we love to visit the antiques shops near by.

We stayed right on the river and loved it. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The kids love the tshirt tye dye, the hayride and movie night. I loved the people that work at KOA. Every single interaction we had with staff was great. They are on the ball and courteous.

The best KOA in the country - don't miss it! Wonderful staff, beautiful campground - you couldn't ask for more! Thank you for a great stay.

I am the author of a new book on Clingmans Dome, the Highest mountain in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Would this KOA location consider putting the book on its shelves? The KOA in Cherokee was pleased to receive it. (I stayed at the KOA in Townsend, TN outside the Park entrance because I was attending a naturalist's certification class at the Great Smoky Mountain Institute. Perfect weekend!!
