The rates continue to rise, making it difficult for families to stay here. Please try to reduce the rates so that it may be more affordable.

We love coming here but noticed this time that at 8:30 AM the staff started blowing away leaves with loud machines! Isn't a big part of camping enjoying the peace and nature sounds of the morning???

When the family owned it, it seemed like there were more staff and activities. To stop the Hayrides and movies before the end of October seems too soon, especially when the children had expected it. We did have a wonderful stay and PERFECT weather. Would be nice if that could be arranged every year!

This was our second stay (but not our last). The grounds & facilities are kept clean. The greatest asset is your employees--friendly, very helpful.

Very nice park, a little pricey but the facilities are nice and the park personnel were very friendly and helpful

Heater in cabin too small to warm the cabin when it gets cold. Bathrooms and showers were clean and portable outhouses and garbage cans were plentiful for which I was grateful. Maintenance people blowing leaves off roads early am was distracting and noisy when trying to sleep in. All in all, satisfied with location and amenities but was pretty pricey for a camping cabin.

More than expected for staying at a campground. Staff was extemely friendly and helpful! Very clean bathrooms and showers. Grounds are right on the main road which has pros and cons. Traffic is rather steady on this road but on the other hand it is a very easy place to find and convenient to attractions. River is beautiful! Cabins are cozy. Will visit again.

We always enjoy staying here, quiet & clean. A little heat in the showers & more in the restrooms would sure be nice.

We had a great time at the Townsend KOA. We had a spot on the river and it was beautiful! We were able to trick or treat at the campground and the office people gave out treats too! Very nice KOA employees. We are excited to plan another trip to this KOA

We enjoyed our stay but found that some of the staff was not as friendly as we have experienced in past visits.We were very disappointed that when we arrived,our children had missed the Halloween activity.No one told us of the time when our reservation was made even when asked about activities. And, Saturday's activities were also cancelled.The weather was cold but no rain or snow at the time.

The Townsend KOA is our home away from home. We especially enjoy this one because we know most of the folks who work there. Doug & Ann Williams

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.
