Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Location was just far enough away from the busy Gatlinburg area.

We loved staying here! Our two small children had a blast on their first camping trip which really made our stay. The playground was great fun for them, although it is geared toward older children than my 1.5 and 2.5 year olds. The pool and close access to the river kept us cooled off. The bath houses were well maintained and clean despite the amount of people in the campground. We will be back!

We rented a "Deluxe Cabin" which turned out to be really nice. A little pricey but very clean and neat. The campground itself is one of the best we've seen.

This is the second time my family has been here. We had a wonderful time. Only disappointment was that I booked on line and thought I was getting a river front cabin, but did not. For future reference you need to confirm via phone if you want a river front cabin.

The improvements that were made are stunning and really improved the campground. I would suggest better internet (where I was there was no internet) And more comfort stations with showers. Will definitely return to this campground.

We love this KOA and we come here often. They are always doing things to improve the campground, so every time we come back they have upgraded something. We enjoy camping there just me and my husband or with all 5 kids. Everyone loves it!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were clean and well kept. The shower houses were updated and clean. With all of this the stay was quite pricey!

Stayed 5 nights in a camping cabin...same cabin 2 years in a row. My kids really enjoy the excellent pool and playground. The river adds to a really nice setting. Great access to the park.

The KOA in Townsend, TN has always been our little piece of Heaven that gives us the escape to go to our "Home Away From Home". Now that our daughter has married and our family is growing and they stayed in a cabin on the river so the memories can continue to live on! Thanks for allowing us to have another great vacation with our family. As always, it was over way too fast! Until next time...€

The tent sites were just too close together. We booked for two nights and only stayed one night. There were little kids in the camp site next to us that were up talking all night and we couldn't get any sleep. We had a cabin 10 feet bhind us, a tent ten feet to our left and another tent 40 feet to our right. It didn't feel like real camping. The bathrooms were so far away so we had to use outhouse
