Great first experience at a KOA! We stayed in a riverfront delux cabin, and we couldn't have been more happy with it. We especially loved the large porch overlooking the beautiful river. My kids enjoyed the fun playground, and my husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the well kept grounds and helpful staff. We will definitely be back! Thank you, KOA Townsend for a lovely weekend getaway!

Cabin was great. Right next to the river. Peaceful and quiet at night. Staff great. Clean. Only negative was Deluxe Cabins too close together. Not much room to maneuver your vehicles. Otherwise great.

Our family loves to camp. But this is like camping at the spur of the moment without pulling out our camper.

It is a nice location. Very clean. Beautiful setting along the river.

Staff was friendly. Camp was clean. The only complaint I would have is that the bed in our cabin was terribly uncomfortable. Neither my husband or myself slept well either night. Other than that we had a good stay.

We've stayed at this KOA a few times, but Friday night 3/24 was the worst night away from home I've had in years. I quietly told the attendant during checkout, I killed 15 roaches during the night in DC6. They seemed to be coming from behind the fridge. Other than that everything was fine. Scott D.

We love this campground. We have stayed in the cabins and on a campsite with our trailer and it is a GREAT place to stay!

It was awesome. The people that are running this campground were amazing. They were constantly checking on everyone making sure things were ok and if we needed anything. They went above and beyond to help our friend get his camper home when his vehicle broke down. Thumbs up KOA Townsend!!!

The small cabin that I stayed in was so very comfortable and cozy. Upon arriving, the heat was on and the whole cabin was warm, which was great because the temperature outside was near freezing. I absolutely loved staying in my cabin and would definitely do it all over again. Great campground and great cabins!

Absolutely beautiful campground! Everyone was super nice and accommodating! Definately will go again.

As usually, they knock it out of the park. Great facilities and a good value. It always feels familiar with each stay.
Feb 01, 2017
Just a beautiful campground. Cabins are so well kept. My sister left her lights on and battery died. Your grounds staff was so helpful. Thank you,

Another great stay at the KOA Townsend. We stayed in a camping cabin on this trip and were very surprised on the cleanliness. Being on the river was great as well. Highly recommend.

For the third year in a row my wife and I enjoyed our deluxe cabin accommodations at the KOA Townsend TN. The facilities are clean and well maintained. The staff is very friendly & obliging.
Jan 06, 2017
The deluxe cabin was incredible - beyond my expectations. The cabin and the campground were clean, and the staff was very friendly. Definitely recommend this place!

Love this place we come here at least twice a year. We stay in the campground and in the cabins. The staff here is awesome. This is my favorite KOA.

We stayed in a cabin and it was great. We will be back!

First of all the cabin was very had two small heating strips that were not sufficient for the temperature had a HORRIBLE bed...I don't know where they got this bed, but it was VERY POOR QUALITY! And, one of the legs was broken...After driving 560 miles, we called the number to speak to someone to ck in and the lady was not friendly at all! We had drove around 11 hours!
Jan 04, 2017
Great stay as always!
Jan 03, 2017
Quiet and comfortable. We had a 2 room cabin: very clean and almost completely met our needs. Wish the bath house had not been so far away. We were very pleasantly surprised to have a tv and fridge in the cabin! Bonus :)
Jan 03, 2017
We will always return to Townsend KOA. The staff is amazing there and always makes us feel at home. The lady at the front desk always gives us the best deal and the guys take great care of the grounds. I even lost my bill fold and they gladly returned it to me and kept it safe, until I arrived.

It was nice except that the power went out in cabin DC10. Also the K-cup coffee maker didn't work before that. This was my in-laws cabin so they were not impressed by their 1st stay @ KOA. 1st impressions are long lasting. We have stayed before so we accept problems but...

Everything about our stay was wonderful!

The campgrounds were under construction & had the large bath house closed. Which let only 2 showers for the entire camp ground with no mention on line about the inconvenience. I stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin with no bathroom, which is nice, but I could not lock my door at night, which was unsettling. Also a microwave would be nice. Take down the molded pictures & replace them with a mirror.
Jan 02, 2017
Our stay was great! Caring was awesome! The only thing that we didn't like was having to walk so far to get to the bath house. We had 3 kids for the weekend and it was a little hard to have to go so far. Other then that everything was perfect.
