Stayed 5 nights while visiting Smoky Mtn NP. Right next to park entrance. The sites are very close together, We had a deluxe site and had a pretty nice site had units on each side (expected) and 3 tent sites right on top of us to the rear (not expected). The campground has good shade and all the features you would expect but tight roads hard to access sewer dump. Wi Fi doesn't work in whole camp.

Sites / parking was very congested. We stayed at several KOAs during the same the week, they were all better and all cheaper.

Great stay. We were in spot 4 and that worked out well for us. We like camping in Townsend vice in Pigeon Forge where it is very crowded. It is a beautiful park.

Great family kampground.States WiFi available but it was too weak for site usage and even weak near main bldg. Personnel were courteous and helpful. Rest rooms and port-a-potties needed to be cleaned more often. Park was busy during visit.

The stone walls you put at the river are too close to the waters edge leaving no room for kids to play. I think you have ruined river access at this KOA. This was a wonderful part of the campground and was sorry to see what you have done to it. I understand the problem with erosion but there are other, more pleasing ways to solve the problem. These walls are so high you should put guard rails up.

Our family enjoyed our stay in the Townsend KOA. Friendly and helpful staff. Bathrooms were clean and well kept. Our second year staying at this site...we'll be back again!

I have been camping my whole lofe. This campgroung ranks as the worst I have ever stade at. My campsite was a swamp. I stade for a week and everyday I had to relevel my 40foot bus. I cant believe this is a koa campground. My reservations where mest up from the day I pulled in. I had to move my bus the second day to another site. Its also real tight to get in and out of the sites. Sad sad sad

The staff here were great! Very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would have liked to see changed is the mold on the shower doors, they need to be wiped down better, otherwise pretty campground!
Jul 27, 2014
The sites are very close together, but the workers are very helpful and friendly. The river sites are great and worth the extra money!

Very clean campground. Friendly staff always willing to go the extra mile

My entire family enjoyed the time we were at KOA! We most appreciated the time the kids spent in a Bible study with activities and games and crafts! Thank you for having this opportunity for the children!

Very friendly staff, beautiful location and my daughter who is nine loved it there. Lots to do for the kids. We stayed five nights and didn't even leave the campground for three days. Nice pool and the river is beautiful!

The campground is extremely nice and well kept. The location is wonderful, but the staff made our stay outstanding. We especially appreciated the kindness of Kate and the manager, Mark.

After my camping partner's vehicle broke down,the staff at the office went out of their way to accommodate our need for the extra days for repairs to be made. The campground was very clean.Sites are somewhat pricey and several needed more gravel due to low spots that flooded after rain,but overall very nice. We would use this campground again

Loved the cleanliness. The friendly and helpful employees. The nice sites and the store deliveries. The program in the mornings for the children and the early evening activities for the whole family organized by a church group who were unbelievable enthusiastic.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Would rate at 5 but some of the sites are very small.
Jul 22, 2014
Lots of clean showers, very friendly and helpful staff, although sites are close together, there are many trees, making the campground feel more private. We appreciated the help parking in our site. Only one disappointment was that there was no recycling of plastics, cans, etc.

The staff and location of the campground was great. The layout of the campsites for campers was horable,there was not enough room to park your camper without having people move there vehicles,and after we parked we had to park in front of our fire barrel so we couldn't have a fire. No yard even for our puppies,and I don't usually complain about price but this KOA was the highest price around.

Basic expecations not met. Based on the premium summer rates, I would expect the central bathroom to be cleaned more often based on usage or condition. The showers needed a good deep cleaning. Many of the camping spots are on top of one another. Only a few employees acknowledged their guests. They are not focused on the customer.
