The most lovely, quiet, peaceful place to celerbrate anything. We celebrated 5 years of marriage and to destress our life for a few days. Thank all of you for your kindness and polite manner of business. Way to go. James and Cathy Powell

We stayed in a deluxe cabin. The staff was very nice. The only issue we had was our A/C in the cabin leaked over our luggage, toiletries and my son's nebulizer machine. They were able to fix the A/C after a few hours. I was able to get my son's breathing machine running the next day.

We absolutely loved this KOA! We had the river essential in the campground & the Smokies are right next door. The weather was terrific & the sites magnificent. After the days out we would come back to our camp cabin and relax or swim.

This location is beautiful. We loved being right on the river. Loved the tubing. Cabins were nice and clean but a little on the cramped side.

We truely enjoyed staying here. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The kids loved playing in the little river, pool, and playground.

Super clean and lots of fun. The only suggestion would be to have more trash cans available.

We stayed in a cabin and really enjoyed it. It was a last minute decision to go and well worth it. Clean.

Great campground next to the Smokies. The kabins were great with a mini fridge and TV. Water outside the kabin was a big plus.

Restrooms had been renovated since my last stay here....Very....very clean. Camping cabins also as comfortable as ever. All KOA employees very kind....Have been at Townsend many times and will continue to visit them!

Everything was really very good. We had a problem with an aggressive dog but the staff did everything they could to alleviate the problem.

Nice campground with lots to at the site and nearby. Staff friendly and helpful. Camping cabin we stayed in was clean but a little worn. Camp sites near the highway suffered with traffic noise. Only frustration with staff was a leaf blower used to sweep a cabin porch at 9:30 on Sunday morning when a broom would have worked fine. Bathroom was clean and so were the porta-johns.

Townsend is probably the best KOA we have ever visited. There are activities everyday hosted by the KOA and they offer a great deal on rafting. The deal includes a shuttle back to the top of the river to raft as many times as you wish until 5pm. Saturday night they played a great family movie outside and offered popcorn and drinks for a small fee. A must visit site for sure. We will be back.

Very friendly staff

Great stay! Clean showers and restrooms! So much fun tubing!
Aug 03, 2015
Excellent stay. The only slight issue was the disrespectfulness of a group of other campers. I'd like to see better enforcement of situations like that. I will definitely be returning though!
Aug 02, 2015
Way overpriced!
Aug 01, 2015
The camp ground is nice. The staff could be nicer. We had to have our gas grill fixed 3 times and air conditioner fixed. We stayed in a deluxe cabin. The staff also did not want to give us fresh towels daily.

Came for a relaxing girls week and had a wonderful time! All the staff were kind and helpful. They never seemed bothered by our many questions and were willing to help. I brought my mom with me and she loved it to the point that her and my dad are making reservations for the fall! Thank you for our great trip!!!

I have stayed here several times, and have recommended to many friends. I left very frustrated as did two friends Cause of frustration-paying $140?per night and when went to office to request replacement of k cups was informed only 4k cups supplied. I said, I understand, but we are staying another night. No additional k cups furnished. Ridiculous! Caused friend to not reserve for future outtin

The primitive cabin was very clean and cozy, and had running water just outside the door... Can't wait to stay there again
