We have camped at KOA campgrounds many times in our travels and they were always courteous, friendly, very clean and a pleasure to camp in. Our top choice is KOA of Townsend in the Smokies. We will be back next year.

A great location. Close to everything but far enough away to be relaxing. The staff was exceptional and so was the fudge.

The campground is minutes from Great Smokey Mtns. NP. We stayed in a camping cabin on the river. The view was amazing. My son was able to go fishing, and both my kids played in the water. It was the perfect alternative to tent camping.

It was wonderful! We loved both cabins, on the river and off. Lived the tubing access and pool and playground. Kids love all the activities:hay ride and movie!! I love the church meeting on Sunday morning. Thank you for having it all!!

Caretakers were helpful and friendly. Site and campground very clean. We will return. Although a hot tub would be nice.

We enjoyed our stay very much! It was my birthday weekend and just sitting and watching the tubers going down the river was very relaxing. Your campground is the best!

We have stayed at this campground for many years and have enjoyed all of them. At our last stay the shower floor was very dirty and the shower curtain had mold on the bottom of it. This was not what we have come to expect from Little River.

Awesome as usual!

We really enjoyed our stay in a camping cabin! Very private and quiet with lots of trees. Also, very clean. We enjoyed the pool,they even let it stay open a little past the 8:00 closing time for our girls who didn't quite make it back for a swim until 8:00pm after a long hike! However, the icecream shop always closed before closing time of 8:00pm(even closed at 7:00 one night) so never had that.

Had great time. Would suggest to include added fees on your website such as charges for cars

Great location! Great staff. Made a wonderful birthday present for my son visiting from NY. He loved it!!!
Aug 25, 2014
Our stay exceeded expectations. Pros: hospitable employees, awesome playground & pool, location=perfect, safe for kids to roam, emmaculate bathhouse, quiet setting, beautiful landscaping, near grocery store and a coupl restaurants. disadvantage was no privacy, sites close together but everything else outweighed that one downfall. We will make this an annual stay going forward. Thank you Townsend K

I was very impressed with the cleanliness. There's so much more than what is portrayed on the web. A leash free area for pets and secured individual private showers in the bathhouse. I was pleasantly surprised to find our camping cabin had electricity,AC, and cable TV. not as rustic afterall!
Aug 23, 2014
Thanks for the help!

Nicely laid out. Clean. Friendly staff. Will stay there again when in the area.

Another great stay at Townsend KOA! Super clean, quiet, and beautiful campground with friendly staff always ready to help. Stayed in a riverfront cabin and loved every minute of it. So relaxing! Really like being able to rent tubes for the river right at the campground. This is our family's favorite vacation destination and we'll definitely be back!

We have camped here for years but this year we were questioned by staff before we could even get to our cabin. This was AFTER checking at the front desk but hadn't had time to get the tag on the mirror! We had just left the office. Then they told us we couldn't sit on the River bank even though it was one of our families sites. We are retirees and these eager beaver volunteers need to back off!

We took our 3 grandchildren, ages 4 - 10. We all had a great time, your playground is super fantastic!!! We will be back!!

Great stay even though it was very busy this weekend. Had a great spot on the river. Showers and bathroom could of been monitored a little more frequently . Also quiet hours could of been monitored a little better. Had someone set up at 4 am our last night.

There was a problem with the hot water in the shower, but otherwise it was a great stay.

The campground was nice. The staff was very pleasant. It would have been nice to know that the cabin we chose was quite a distance from the bathhouse. The bathhouse was somewhat dated- newer campgrounds have combined the toilet area with the shower area to make individual bathrooms. This is a really nice family feature.

We always love staying at this campground. Jeremiah Adam Jimmy and Jordan always make our stay SPECTACULAR. Mark has trained his folks well. This is our favorite campground and these folks help make it our favorite.
