We love camping here, PLEASE make some improvements to the off leash dog area! Water for one, making sure poop bags are always full, better places to sit would be nice and trash empty. Love the new sites!

Disappointed that the bathrooms are so far from many campsites. Had to use port-o-johns, especially in the middle of the night. Campsites are close together and there is no central place for dishes. Also, gravel road and gravel campsites are difficult for riding bikes and uncomfortable for walking.

As always, staff very friendly and grounds in great shape. Pool was cloudy one day but didnt stop kids from a great swim. Thank you for a wonderful week camping with grand kids. Ps..showers look great and bathrooms Always well stocked!!

Tent site was a great size and showers and bathrooms were always clean.
Jun 23, 2015
Was perfect. Rates are a bit high now.
Jun 23, 2015
The improvements that were made are stunning and really improved the campground. I would suggest better internet (where I was there was no internet) And more comfort stations with showers. Will definitely return to this campground.

This was our first stay at this campground and couldn't be more pleased. Staff was friendly and helpful, campground was clean and well kept, and there were a lot of amenities. The river was a huge plus also! We will definitely be back.

We love this KOA and we come here often. They are always doing things to improve the campground, so every time we come back they have upgraded something. We enjoy camping there just me and my husband or with all 5 kids. Everyone loves it!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were clean and well kept. The shower houses were updated and clean. With all of this the stay was quite pricey!

Staff is exceptional,helpful & friendly.Sites are prepared but narrow. Parking space very scare.

We were not given the site we had reserved last June 2014 adjacent to other family's site. We had 2 vehicles (1 with car seats for 2 grandbabies and 1 for elderly, disabled grandfather). We were threatened with eviction and that authorities would be called if 1 vehicle was not moved. We complied, but our camping experience was ruined by Mr Chipperfield. We will not be back and would not recommend.

Without a doubt this is my favorite camp ground. The staff if very friendly and easy to work with. The grounds are a 10+ and the updated facilities are as nice if not nicer than my own home. I truly love staying at this campground. They have upgraded many of the sites as well as made the riverside sites full hookup, Mark, you and your staff have knocked it out of the park! Thank you.

My family had a wonderful stay. Love this KOA-my favorite campground! Only thing I would change is to make wifi stronger near the river sites w/the balconies. (It's good to unplug for a week, but sometimes it's good to be able to connect on a rainy day). This wouldn't prevent me from staying again, but it would be a nice addition. Also, love the upgrades you made over the winter!

The campsites are too close together. Whene sitting outside at our table we were right at our neighbors sewage connection. We were at a preferred site to. We will request a different site if we return. They have redone a few sites in the middle that were nice. Everything else was ok. People were nice.

We have stayed here for 6years in a row. The bath house is always clean and that means a lot to us.

the staff was very nice and helpfull.
Jun 15, 2015
We found the river front campsites too small, to close to the firepits making us very uncomfortable when someone had a fire. We moved to the lower level deluxe sites and found them more relaxing. Your staff were all very friendly and helpful whenever we needed something. The location was within a half hour drive to most points of interest. The Smokey Mts. was awesome with all the wildlife.
Jun 15, 2015
Everything was wonderful except the people who let their dog start barking both mornings around 8am and it continued without trying to stop it for half an hour. This isn't acceptable.
Jun 15, 2015
Great place for our scattered families to meet. We love the improvements. This koa gets better every time we visit
