We loved it! Everyone went out of their way to make sure our first outing in our new camper (1st time camper owners) went smoothly! We had a great weekend & are returning in 2 weeks!

This was my first stay and first impression of the KOA family. I am greatly impressed. Starting with the initial registration, to the personal assistance given me by staff, I could not have asked for anymore. After settling in one of the staff came by to see if we were settled in and needed anything. The facilities were clean, warm and the staff was first class. You have made a lasting impression.

Great facilities & staff. Price is reasonable. Campground entrance and interior roads are a little tight to maneuver a large RV.

The staff was exceptionally helpful, and very friendly! We usually stay in State Parks, but hope to visit this campground again. Very clean.

This was our first RV adventure and what a help Mickie was! We loved this campground - it was kept so immaculately clean, so beautiful. Plus we weren't pulling a car but we could walk to restaurants and attractions.

Very clean and friendly. Really enjoyed the creek view and the peace and quite of the surroundings. Far enough from the attractions of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg but close enough to enjoy it. Really enjoyed being minutes away from all the wonderful trails of the Smokies.

Our 1st winter RV camp! Other than the constant fog/mist/drizzle (not in your control!) we had a nice stay. Site was lovely.

Stayed in lot 82 for 6 nights. Great staff. Beautiful spot. We loved our stay

The campground is very nice, very neat. If I was going to camp somewhere and sight see all around the site, this would be the place to go. My only "dislike" was that you're neighbors are really close! Most of the State parks are a bit more spread out. But a very nice campground!

It was wonderful

I love this campground. You really feel like you are in the Smoky's. No hustle and bustle, just quite and peaceful camping.

Beautiful campground. The only thing I wish were different, is the early time that the game room closed. Should at least we 10 pm.
Dec 27, 2015
The help was great. Very nice area we had. Love the view of the river. Very clean park and friendly staff. We will be back to stay again.

Campground was clean, well kept, maintained and staff was very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect close to Cades cove, Gatinburg, & Pigeon Forge but with more of a quiet laid-back atmosphere!

Despite it being very cold during my stay the river was the best part!

Nice campground, great location and great playground.

Do not like the online registration because I could not select the site I wanted to be on. A site was assigned to me. If I had the opportunity to see what was available, I would have selected another site.

Great campground. Do not like the extra fee to guarantee a certain campsite. If someone books months in advance and asks for a site - they should not have to pay extra. We don't have to do that at other KOA's we frequent. We DO love the Townsend KOA!!!!

good people...great place

We love the KOA in Townsend. Lots to do, near a great bike path, staff friendly willing to help. We try and get there at least a couple of times a year. Already have a trip planned next summer!

We love this KOA. The playground is great for kids and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. The bathhouse was spotless and our site was perfect. Great time was had.
Dec 01, 2015
We had a wonderful time. The bathroom and shower facilities were immaculate. The grandsons had the best time on the playground. A terrific place to stay out of the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas but close enough for a short drive to those attractions. We will return in the future. Thanks Cathy Richard

We absolutely loved our stay & plan to return when we can. Perhaps the only suggestion I'd make is to have a policy on the size and positioning of campers' large screen outdoor TVs on their sites and the impact on sites close by. The folks next to us were very nice and we didn't want to fuss by asking them to move their TV so perhaps a policy? It was so bright we couldn't enjoy our campfire.

We stay here every year for our anniversary. The staff is very friendly, the grounds are well kept, and you can't beat the scenery. Great place to stay while visiting the Smokies.
