Very nice campground. However, the gps tells you the address is someplace other than where it is. The people at the front desk are aware of this, so it should be on the website. Also, there needs to be more lighting by the front koa sign. Very hard to tell where it is at night.

My husband and I love camping here, we have been there many times and will absolutely continue to do so

This is worst stay we have experienced at this KOA. We were unfortunate enough to have a loud group next to us in lot 13 that stayed out to the wee hours drinking and partying. Had no respect for those around them. I tried to find a number to contact a KOA associate in which there was none. Only a recording with no after hours contact number. Very disappointed.

We loved this campground and have made plans to return. The staff are great and the location of the campground is perfect!

Had a really great stay, with the campground being very quiet and peaceful for a late January trip. The only wish would be for the wifi to be a little stronger.

This is a beautiful campsite, well maintained and good facilities. The playground for the kids was fantastic. We stayed on the stream and the sites were beautiful. I rated this campground only 3 stars only because the sites are so close together. We prefer to camp on larger sites that allow us to spread out .

Stayed Christmas week was great but got a little sloppy Christmas Eve and day when restrooms were not cleaned due to no workers present.

Great place to stay on the "quiet" side of the Smokies!! Close to Cades Cove and many other attractions. Campground was very clean and staff was super friendly!! Can't wait to go back.

No WiFi, poor cell coverage. No events at Christmas holidays. Location great, entrance is very small, sites are average.

Bathroom keypads were not activated and passersby from the main road stopped to use the facilities frequently. The bathrooms were messy and not clean. Advertised Wi-Fi only available near main office. Sites were muddy and needed more gravel.

I would have given a 5 star rating except for the rest room facilities. While very clean, the showers had very little pressure and the shower heads were little more than 5 feet high. I am 6-4 and the water was hitting me in at arm height. Pricing for the camp site is pretty pricey as well. $50+ dollars a night is kinda steep. On the plus side the campground is beautiful, river is great, cle

Allowed me to reserve site pull in site near big bath house but did not say anything about bath house being closed and did not put us in the area we requested. Over priced for the area and amenities.

We had a creek side site with a deck. It was a little too cold when we were there to enjoy the deck but it really was beautiful. The grounds were well maintained and everyone we encountered was very helpful. It is so close to the National Park and that was also spectacular. I would definitely return to this KOA.

Everyone was very nice and helpful and very clean. But koa townsend is $25 higher then their next Door neighbor that is just as clean.

Very friendly helpers on the grounds. Within walking distance of good restaurants. The little park was a wonderful surprise.

Our favorite place to stay and the friendliest staff around! When we found out we had to pull out a day early, we were refunded the one night without any hesitation. As my husband said, that more than ensures our return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Townsend KOA. The scenery, sights , and staff were all great. Our only complaint was that the Wifi kept fading in and out. It was very frustrating to get online and then be kicked off.

The rates continue to rise, making it difficult for families to stay here. Please try to reduce the rates so that it may be more affordable.

Great place!
