Our first experience in the Cabins, we enjoyed it very much, always enjoy the Townsend area and look forward to our next visit. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

Queen bed is not really a queen but needs to be. Mattress needs replacing, bed uncomfortable. Cabin could use a sink. Bunk bed mattresses too thin. Cabin was nice and provided the essentials but a few improvements would make them better. Great staff on site, clean area. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks.

Excellent campground. There are cheaper campgrounds but, the difference is clear to see.

Beautiful surroundings and very nice people. Seems to me though that you shouldn't have to charge for visitors. The fee to stay should cover an afternoon visitor. Excellent facilities.

You won't find a more caring group of people, or a cleaner and friendly place to camp. Thank you to Mark and Jeremiah for your kind words and caring. It means so much to Sam and I. Thanks for understanding our personal situation and showing such compassion. Hope to see you all again soon!

Had a great time. Everyone was so friendly. Sherry was excellent! She was so helpful during our stay in many ways. Can't thank her enough.

we stayed right on the river in our motor home. We really like this place for a campground. Friendly and helpful staff and sites are not crammed in tight like some places. You feel privacy even thought all the sites seemed to be full. We did not use the bath house so can't comment on that.

Loved the camp ground, very clean, lots to do, all the sites are very nice, friendly staff, My only draw back was that your neighbour's sewer hook up is next to your picnic table.

Loved every minute! My boys had a great time fishing in the Little River and we loved the cabin next to the river. We will definately be back. Only wish was that store and other local businesses stayed open later in the evening and some ground lighting for nighttime walks. Very dark to navigate. Especially the cabin steps. Maybe some low voltage lighting landscape lighting??? Will be back!!

Great KOA..They have everything you need for a great vacation. The staff that we met were very pleasant.Lots of pretty trees and river. We saw several people tubing on the river. Looks like fun. 10 min from beautiful cades cove.We were lucky and got to witness a black bear sleeping in a tree:) we will be back!

Nice place. Needs maintenance and better cleaning in deluxe cabins. Had to clean when we arrived at 6:30pm. Grill dirty also.
May 14, 2014
It was great except the steps outside of two of our cabins were slick. My husband fell 2 times and my sis n law once. I am 9 months pregnant and a friend staying in a cabin next to ours is 8 months pregnant as well. So as you can imagine what could have happened if we had fell. They finally did come put strips down after my brother raised Cain. But it was still slick and should have been washed.

We had a very raining weekend but still Iots of fun. We stayed in a cabin so that worked out great .

We have been coming for about 10 years now. This trip it seemed not as busy. Several of our group fell on the cabin steps they were green and slippery we told the staff after 2 falls they put some towels down. But there were more To follow. Finally it was fixed. It was very painful and embarassing. The pool closed to early also. 7:00 we were also told our rv site didn't move but there was a caBi
