We recently sold our camper but wanted to camp before cold weather. We rented the 4 person cabin with bathroom. It has heat, air, hot water, bunk beds, a queen bed, small fridge, microwave, 2 seat table, included bed sheets and towels ! It was like new and clean. The campground is on the river, has a cute cabin playground, bike rentals, and basketball court. We were late and they left light on !!!

Minor problems with lighting in cabin. Quiet, restfully. Contact with employees very casual and professional. Good visit!

We were in Townsend to visit old friends, and our stay at the KOA was lovely. The front desk was especially helpful, over the phone and in person. Even the grounds keepers went out of their way to be nice and helpful.

My stay was great. The cabin was clean and comfy. The only fly in the ointment was the WiFi, which does not work. I will be back.

The cabins are located near the river and provide an extremely relaxing atmosphere. The local area of Townsend is truly the "Quiet side of the Smokies".

Thanks to two great young men at KOA, Jordan and Jeremiah, our trip was rescued when they worked to find the blown fuse in our power hitch. Friendly, helpful folks. And what a beautiful camp! It is like staying in the park! The only negative was the very poor wifi which kept us from sharing pictures and blog with family. I would DEFINITELY return to this KOA even without wifi!

Great campground, terrific staff. Best place to stay while visiting the great Smokey Mountains.

This KOA is for people with kids. If don't mind kids running through your campsite or all the screaming, then this is the campground for you. If not, recommend you go elsewhere. Also, the spacing between sites is very tight. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Workers and management are very friendly.

I chose this campground because of the location, and was actually worried because I thought it might be too commercial. Boy, was I wrong! It was a great, quiet, private spot right in the best location to explore the Smokies. We had a tent site on the river, and it was great. The staff was helpful and friendly, and facilities CLEAN. Our only issue was that the camp store closed at 6:00! Plan ahead!

We had a great time - 1st time there and we will be back in the future. We needed a bigger site, but since we made last minute plans, it worked for us. Thanks to the friendly staff.

For the price we paid, too far from bathhouse, no sewage hookup, somebody left at 5 am and were trying to wake everybody with noise and lights. All the people we dealt with were very friendly.

We had a fantastic stay. This KOA is very peaceful and relaxing. The camp ground is clean and well maintained. We already made our reservations for May and October of next year.

This was an awesome vacation getaway--we will come back again to this campground--so much better than staying at a motel.

Great campground. Great staff. Nice quiet location to the Great Smokey Mountains. We have been camping here for 30 years!

Friendly staff, close to Cades Cove in the Smokies, Nice clean restrooms, stayed in a 30' 5th wheel. We will be back.

We stayed at site 87. Probably one of the prettiest site we had ever stay at. We have stayed here many times over the past ten years and have enjoyed our stay every time. We did however have a few downers. The first was the group getting loud directly across from us(west of site 87 across the grass area between us,way passed 10:00! Also,the dumping of sewage next to us during our breakfast!:(

We enjoyed our stay. The campgrounds are very well taken care of, everyone was very friendly. Only downside is that the sites are just too close together.

The staff was super friendly and helpful.

Location was good. I reserved site over 2 months in advance only to be placed on a campsite barely big enough for 28 ft. RV with no place to park vehicle. The more spacious lots are given to larger RVs and ones with slides. Rates were too high for the experience I had. Won't camp there again.

What a great campground! Everyone is nice and helpful and the facilities are so clean! Must try the fudge at the sweet shoppe. We did tent camping by the river, can't wait to try a cabin.

Nice staff, neat location. Water leak at site made for messy unhook.

My husband and I love the way there is privacy even with so many people around. The family atmosphere is wonderful. We are already planning our stay next year, as well as planning on bringing our family in the future!
