Cabin Reviews

Nov 24, 2014

We enjoyed the cabin, warm and cozy after hiking along the beautiful river and the COOL outdoors. Thanks

This campground is absolutely beautiful. Our rustic cabin was about two blocks away from the bathroom facilities. Also, the water spigot near the cabin was either turned off or frozen. The nearest water was about one block away. On my way to the bathroom with toiletries, a lantern, and a teapot, I tripped over a fire ring . My legs were hurt, but I did not break anything. Closer bathrooms?

Everything from the staff to all the facilities at this campground are top notch. Townsend KOA is our favorite place to stay.

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 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!

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".

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!

We reported to the office at least three times that the toilet was leaking around the seal and we had to keep cleaning it up. With no avail did we get it fixed. Also, the office check in staff was friendly except for one lady I did not get a name. She was very strick a firm with no hospitable welcoming at all.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! The campgrounds and cabins were in excellent condition and clean as well as the restrooms/showers. We had a blast as well as a perfect place to bring our grandkids! Thank you! Stephanie

Great clean campground with lots of stuff on site. However, wi-go signal that was advertised was non existent. Should not be able to to advertise wi-if when it NEVER works.

We loved the grounds, location and facilities. We stayed in a cabin which was very nice and clean. However, the bed was horrible. The mattress was the worst I have ever slept on. I woke up in pain many times during the night. Not sure if I would chance ever staying there again.

This is a great place to get away and unwind. The camping grounds has friendly staff members, several different options for tents, 5th Wheels, trailers, RV's or renting cabins.

The cabin was clean and the heater work very well, our tv remote didn't work probably needed batteries. We had stayed at that same cabin before in the summer at a lower rate and wonder why the rate was higher at this time of the year?

Loved our cabin but the WiFi service didn't reach are area very well. The staff was very friendly other than a girl that works in the store. She was one of the most unfriendly people I have ever met. Felt like I was not good enough for her or something. At first I thought maybe she was just having a bad day but every time I came in she was working and was just as unfriendly as the last time.
