Campground Reviews

We had a great time, the grounds was beautiful we'll be back !

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.

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.

We stayed in a lodge. The kids enjoyed the playground and pool. Our dog enjoyed the dog park. We all had a great time and will go back again. The only thing I didn't like was the small shower will ask for one with a tub the next time.

This was our 7th year and as always it was fantastic in everyway. We come for the children and there is so much for children to do. We always look so forward to our trip. Thanks

It was OK, not the best koa we have stayed in. Not very kid friendly. The location was great but the staff was not very knowledgeable about attractions or directions.

We love this KOA! Was our 4th stay, and the longest. We are not happy that the Internet WIFI was unreliable Sunday thru Friday, then broke altogether (until Monday!)by the Gen Mgr who was trying to fix it himself. We should have at the very least been offered some kind of compensation. We work while camping and the Internet is key to that. I am sorry for the Mgrs but they mishandled this badly!

1st time to camp at KOA in Townsend/TN and will be back this fall. Keep up the good work!

Townsend/KOA is our #1 campground choice by far!
Aug 12, 2013
Such a great family place to stay. I have stayed here before and it is always wonderful and we will for sure be returning. :)

It has gotten a little pricey but the staff and location are great. Showers could use an update.
Aug 12, 2013
The one thing that could have made the stay better would be new mattresses in the cabins, they were not that comfortable. But other than that, we had a wonderful time. It's a place that's family friendly for sure. Thank you so much. Oh, live music would be nice too.

We had a wonderful stay this past week. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to us. The first night we arrived, we came in late, and the staff stayed to help us get in to our site. They also allowed us to pull in the opposite way to allow us to face our neighbors, our friends. They were always willing to offer suggestions and help us in any way needed. The area was beautiful!
