Cabin Reviews

May 17, 2014
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!!

Nice place. Needs maintenance and better cleaning in deluxe cabins. Had to clean when we arrived at 6:30pm. Grill dirty also.

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 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

Great location in Townsend. One of the cleanest KOA's I have ever been to. Great friendly staff. They were very accomadating. Super clean laundry with new units. Nice pool. Clean campgrounds. The riverfront location is absolutely amazing!! Saw people tubing down the river which was very fun to watch. Super quiet nights! Lots of fish in the river. Beautiful butterflies everywhere!Great stay!

We love this KOA & camp here often in our camper and in the Deluxe Cabins. Stayed in a regular Camping Cabin this time & it was nice. Ours was a 2 rm, on the river. Bed was comfty despite what I'd heard, but having tent camped in my past, I was prepared! Cabins have TV, dorm fridge & AC. A ceiling fan in main room would be nice; had 1 in back room.

My family & I would like to say Thank you to the entire Townsend KOA staff! Our second night I was rushed to the hospital for a kidney stone,the staff at KOA went above & beyond to ensure I was ok & had everything I needed. They comforted my wife & made certain she was ok. I was in excruciating pain for our whole stay but the KOA staff let me use a lounge chair at the cabin 2 sit by th fire & relx

A very well maintained campground. Clean cabibs, grounds and bathrooms/showers. Friendly helpful staff are visible and approachable.

The cabins on the river had lots of activity so hard to rest at night. Also needed a sink in bathroom and somewhere to store clothes. Bed very difficult to make as there was not enough room to get behind it.

I have been visiting this campground on and off for 10 years, as always it was a delight and the staff is always friendly and inviting. This was the first time staying in one of the cabins, beautiful and accommodating. I love all the new features and changes to the park, had a wonderful stay and will be back next year for sure.

Helpful and friendly staff. Clean cabin facing the river. The only suggestion I would give is please leave extra trash bags in the cabin. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

We love staying in Cabin 15 on the river. it's a nice cabin with frig and tv, but the best part is, of course, the river! We just keep coming back

The cabin was nice. The outside needed to have spider webs and wasp nest cleaned out and we did'nt know we had a water site on the side. Need to have bathrooms in cabin area.

Cabin small but adequate. Very clean and well- maintained. Staff friendly and helpful. Security visible and readily available. Beautiful river. Overall good experience. The cabin was a bit pricey for the size.

Wonderful place to stay. Had a great time fishing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Our deluxe cabin was just what we needed. They even welcomed our chocolate lab. Great location. It's close to Pigeon Forge but not too close. Had a great time.

This is the best KOA we have stayed at! We were in a deluxe camping cabin for 5 nights while we were exploring the Smokeys. The cabin was spotless,up-to-date appliances (refrigerator, microwave, tv), clean bedding, air-conditioning, heat, a nice patio in the back with grill and fireplace. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We will definitely come back!

We first visited this KOA in 2006 and it has always been a wonderful stay! The cabins are cozy, clean, & have cute kitchens! The staff are very friendly and accommodating! We love sitting around the fire pit and listening to the Little River! This past stay we discovered some new cabins and a cute updated playground for the kids! We did not swim in the pool but it looked inviting!
