This might the best campground of its type in the country. Clean and well maintained, with a friendly and genuinely concerned staff (and plenty of staff). We've come back, and will return again.

We always have a great experience every time we go and always meet new people.

Love the campground and the staff. One major recommendation is to do away with one of the sites on the river. (13, 14, 15, 16) The sites are very crowded and it is difficult to park one vehicle. We had to wake up the person next to us so we could hook up our camper. Unfortunately, campers have gotten bigger and the sites have not changed in size.

A great location. Close to everything but far enough away to be relaxing. The staff was exceptional and so was the fudge.

Caretakers were helpful and friendly. Site and campground very clean. We will return. Although a hot tub would be nice.

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.

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!

Had a great time. Workers were helpful with our questions. Bath house is clean and that means a lot to me.
