A spectacular campsite! Stunning scenery within the site as well as the surrounding area. Nice rustic restaurant next door as well. I would definitely return for an extended stay.

We had a great time. The facility was very clean and offered lots of activities if you wanted to participate. Our only negatives would be that it was very busy around our campsite and some campers let their dogs wander.

Nice place and convenient to the Park. Lots of campers with fires so it stayed pretty smokey most of the time. Very well stocked camp store. Kid's playground looked really nice and was being used a lot.

Townsend KOA is a really great place. We have stayed there 3 or 4 times now. The area we were in is very close to adjacent sites. Nice pool, game area, store, excellent bath house, super staff. We enjoyed movie night Saturday evening. Had a water issue and they fixed it immediately! Had two new adult camper with us. I believe they are hooked. Had a blast...... again! Thank you!

We had a great time. Our site was roomy. We have one suggestion, a warning system for bad weather.

Nice facility especially with the restaurant and store close by. Very nice newer shower & washroom facility. We enjoyed the pool several times during our stay. The fire rings in some sites were in difficult locations for use and parking around.

We have been coming to that same campground for around 28 years for Labor Day.You have made several large improvements to the facilities that we really noticed.The sewer system was impressive and some of the other upgrades were also.Thank you for keeping the feeling of the old Little River.We love the family, out in the woods feeling we can get there. We'll be there next year, if not before.

We are usually state and county park campers. We have a 5th wheel. We could not find anything near Townsend TN that would fit that. So we stayed at the KOA there. It was a great experience and we would go back. A staffer guided me into our spot. The place was very clean and the staff very nice. Our spot was right on the river.

We were very disappointed with this campground. I stayed there many years ago as a child with my parents and loved it. I was looking toward to taking my children there. The campsites were extremely way to small. Campers were touching each other. I was in my bathroom and could here the people beside of us conversation. They could lean up against our camper while sitting on their picnic table.

Great customer service, friendly, good activities, and location for things to do. Some campsites very small and close to next camper. Bathrooms nice and clean but had to wait even for mens almost every time.

From the owner Mark, down to Jeremiah, Adam, Al & the ladies of the office - this is the nicest place. Our home away from home. See you all next month.

I found the staff to be really friendly and helpful.The bathrooms and showers were always clean. The landscaping of some of the sites was awesome and it was my understanding that the remaining sites would eventually be done as well if this is true and once complete i'm not sure you could find better!

This was like a parking lot with gravel. We couldn't put out our awning because on how close the campers are. they had No parking area on your site.

The 400 character limit is not enough to explain how much we enjoyed this KOA. Beautiful riverfront campsites, super clean bathrooms, separate private (clean) showers, well maintained grounds, friendly staff, and a convenient arrangement for tubing the river. We will stay here again if we return to the Smokies!
