Stayed 5 nights while visiting Smoky Mtn NP. Right next to park entrance. The sites are very close together, We had a deluxe site and had a pretty nice site had units on each side (expected) and 3 tent sites right on top of us to the rear (not expected). The campground has good shade and all the features you would expect but tight roads hard to access sewer dump. Wi Fi doesn't work in whole camp.

Sites / parking was very congested. We stayed at several KOAs during the same the week, they were all better and all cheaper.

Great stay. We were in spot 4 and that worked out well for us. We like camping in Townsend vice in Pigeon Forge where it is very crowded. It is a beautiful park.

We love our camping cabin next to the Little River!! It is a place of peacefulness & relaxation with our family away from the demands of life. Our family has been coming to this camp ground for 23 years! All the updates are grat improvements! Thank you for regular cleanings of the porta- potties & convient location. Also, so nice to be able to rent the tubes from our own campsite! We will be back!

There were a few minor things that had to be taken care of, but were completed quickly. Thank you so much for a great stay Mark and Samantha!

Had just a great time. Daisy in the office was just the 'sweetest' person ever.

Site right on the river was nice, unfortunately had to have mgmt remove several campers who decided to park themselves on the river bank in front of our site to watch the tubers coming down the rapids. Other campers cutting thru our site happened often in our 6 day stay.....perhaps mgmt should inform all campers to respect the other campers sites upon checkin. Kids loved the playground.

We arrived after the office closed, the front desk girl left a map to our cabin and turned the lights on for us. When we finally made it, it was pitch black out and we couldn't see much but we heard the water flowing on the river. Needless to say we woke up to a BEAUTIFUL view from our waterfront cabin. We can't wait to bring family back with us next year.

Only issue was the fact that there were no restrooms close to the cabin, only port-a-potties.

Wonderful as always. Had a safe place for us to stay during tornado warning.

Great family kampground.States WiFi available but it was too weak for site usage and even weak near main bldg. Personnel were courteous and helpful. Rest rooms and port-a-potties needed to be cleaned more often. Park was busy during visit.

This is the best KOA site we have ever stayed at. Thank you for everything. We cannot wait to return!!!!

The stone walls you put at the river are too close to the waters edge leaving no room for kids to play. I think you have ruined river access at this KOA. This was a wonderful part of the campground and was sorry to see what you have done to it. I understand the problem with erosion but there are other, more pleasing ways to solve the problem. These walls are so high you should put guard rails up.

Our family enjoyed our stay in the Townsend KOA. Friendly and helpful staff. Bathrooms were clean and well kept. Our second year staying at this site...we'll be back again!

I have been camping my whole lofe. This campgroung ranks as the worst I have ever stade at. My campsite was a swamp. I stade for a week and everyday I had to relevel my 40foot bus. I cant believe this is a koa campground. My reservations where mest up from the day I pulled in. I had to move my bus the second day to another site. Its also real tight to get in and out of the sites. Sad sad sad

WE HAVE STAYED HERE SEVERAL TIMES AND REALLY ENJOY THIS KOA, HOWEVER THEY SERIOUSLY NEED A BATHHOUSE ON THE BACKSIDE OF THIS PROPERTY, WE STAYED ON LOT 75 AND EVEN FROM THERE WHEN THE CAMPGROUND IS FULL THE WALK IS A BIT MUCH AND IF YOU HAVE A POPUP CAMPER YOU CERTAINLY CANT SEND YOUR WIFE AND KIDS TO THE BATHROOM LATE AT NIGHT THEY HAVR PORTAJOHNS ON THAT SIDE BUT PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!

The staff here were great! Very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would have liked to see changed is the mold on the shower doors, they need to be wiped down better, otherwise pretty campground!
