Caretakers were helpful and friendly. Site and campground very clean. We will return. Although a hot tub would be nice.
Aug 26, 2014
We enjoyed our stay very much! It was my birthday weekend and just sitting and watching the tubers going down the river was very relaxing. Your campground is the best!

Great stay even though it was very busy this weekend. Had a great spot on the river. Showers and bathroom could of been monitored a little more frequently . Also quiet hours could of been monitored a little better. Had someone set up at 4 am our last night.

There was a problem with the hot water in the shower, but otherwise it was a great stay.

It' a great place to stay. Very Very clean, including the shower houses and restrooms. Get a spot on the river and sit and watch the tubers go down the river. I highly recommend this campground

Please take a leaf blower to the sites as the customer checks in. This is a nice touch imo. We had an excellent stay and look forward to seeing you in October! Shawn

Friendly people and clean facilities. Next time we will get a premium full hook up site. The normal sites were to narrow.

Best campground we ever stayed in!

The staff was very accommodating and personable. I was able to get a pull thru as I requested, but our traveling companions were given a pull in with a big tree in the middle of the exit. We called ans specifically requested two pull-thrus side-by-side and were told we had them. The facilities are wonderful for a family with MANY things for kids to do. I would come back if I were in the

Very clean and great staff. Need to trim some low hanging tree branches and add some grave to cove muddy sites.
Aug 17, 2014
Great! Clean, quiet, our favorite KOA. Love the proximity to Cade's Cove. Would rather stay in Townsend and drive to Pigeon Forge than deal with the traffic all the time.

We had a great week at the Townsend KOA! It was very relaxing staying at the site we had right beside the Little River. Everything at this campground (bathrooms, showers, pool, campsites, playground. etc) was clean and well taken care of. All of the employees were nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to others and we will hopefully be staying again next year!
Aug 16, 2014
Had a great time. Workers were helpful with our questions. Bath house is clean and that means a lot to me.

I can't say enough about Great Smokies KOA in Townsend! Beautiful location and great staff. We look forward to our next trip - we know it will be a great experience.

Best campground in Townsend. The only problem we had were the young campers(kids) riding their bikes after dark. All employees were helpful &friendly,will return for future vacations.

Absolutely loved it. the landscape was great. I noticed how you care for those big trees and appreciated the wildflowers. g'children thought it was awesome, pool, playground, hey ride, movie on Sat. etc. WE WILL BE BACK.

Wonderful, once you get there besides the lack of internet. People who work online cannot cope with this, especially when cell service is so bad. Had reservations for a long weekend next month but, unfortunately, will have to cancel. Won't be back.

Sites are VERY narrow but we had a great view right on the river. All employees were very friendly and helpful!!

We have been camping here for almost 25 years and it is one of our favorite places anywhere across the country.

I was there with my 2 daughter's, s-i-law & 8yr old grandson who made friends with a set of triplet boys his age. This was a very memorable time for him,riding bikes,shooting rocks with their sling shots,bows & arrows, catching mono'switch & lightening bugs. We have since left but the boy's exchanged info & have face time each other everyday. We can't wait to return next year to meet them again.

Beautiful park, right along the Little River. Very picturesque. Sites are a little too close together and some of the sites are difficult if you have slide outs. Other than that, it would be great. Nice pool, Nice restrooms with showers. Very well kept up. Very helpful in getting the trailer backed in. We were able to use the site next to us so we had plenty of room to put the truck and bikes.

we like this campground best of any we have camping there for 25 years we love it THANK YOU

Been staying 5 yrs this year was not pleasant. At checkin I was told there would be xtra fees for our second vehicle which we have never had to pay and basically being accused of sneaking in our second vehicle. Ironically though we've always been given two parking passes, there were no kids activities, constant smell of sewage being pumped at one point ran us out of our campsite due to nausea

Nice, friendly just a little costly. Need campers to respect quiet hours. One noisy group was loud at 3:30 AM 8/4/14.
Aug 09, 2014
Everything was clean and environment was great, our camp sure was perfect for us. I also appreciated the fact that everyone kept their dogs on leashes, we have children that are afraid and this is usually a problem. Thanks!!!

We enjoyed the atmosphere, friendship and whole experience. Would like for the pool to be open until at least 9PM as it was very difficult to get dinner cooked and cleaned up, then back to the pool before it closed, and weather was very warm. We especially like nighttime swimming, no risk of sunburn.

This was our first time camping in a KOA. We picked our camper up on Friday and checked in on Saturday. This is our first camper! The staff and accommodations were great. Our experience was awesome and are looking to book there again for next month!
Aug 06, 2014
This KOA was clean, friendly with plenty for that kids to do. Only slight issue is how tight all the camp sights are and the WIFI doesn't work unless you are close to the store.
Aug 06, 2014
Beautiful campgrounds.Gorgeous locale!! We love the tubing connection!!!! The only problem is that it is tight in there and some folks with big rigs(NOT US) seem to have trouble parking.Staff was nice and friendly. we would definately stay here again.
Aug 06, 2014
OK in general. There were some noisy people on Friday night.
