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!

Staff was friendly. We like the fact it has a dog park to allow pets to run w/o a lease. Rates higher than the next door, however we can reserve a site w/o a 7 day reservation. Disappointed in the Wi-Fi. It was very weak and came and went. I rely on it for business.

We LOVED this campground! The only constructive criticism would be to not bury the firepits. It is so hard to maintain a good cooking fire when you can't get airflow down in the firepit.

Very good management, helped us level our RV, and gave helpful information for the campsite. Will return often.

As always had a great time, wonderful staff friendly and helpful. But wish someone had told me I would be parked under a pine tree. Sap has ruined a brand new camper, they said it was the only one available for my days, hope they cut it down.

This was our 7th year and as always it was fantastic in everyway. We come for the children and there is so much for children to do. We always look so forward to our trip. Thanks

It was OK, not the best koa we have stayed in. Not very kid friendly. The location was great but the staff was not very knowledgeable about attractions or directions.

We love this KOA! Was our 4th stay, and the longest. We are not happy that the Internet WIFI was unreliable Sunday thru Friday, then broke altogether (until Monday!)by the Gen Mgr who was trying to fix it himself. We should have at the very least been offered some kind of compensation. We work while camping and the Internet is key to that. I am sorry for the Mgrs but they mishandled this badly!

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful!!!

We had a wonderful stay this past week. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to us. The first night we arrived, we came in late, and the staff stayed to help us get in to our site. They also allowed us to pull in the opposite way to allow us to face our neighbors, our friends. They were always willing to offer suggestions and help us in any way needed. The area was beautiful!

Great place to camp, exceptional service and hospitality from staff.

We loved our stay! The fact that you can just drop your tubes in the river and float down the rapids was awesome!!! We will come back to stay!
Aug 07, 2013
Sites are extremely close to each other. Price was higher than Ii have ever paid for a campsite. Due to price and size of sites I will not visit this campground very often. Wifi only works if you sit at the office or pool. Campground was clean and staff was friendly.

2nd visit there, and will come again. Disappointed in the beach upgrade, but overall a great experience.
Aug 05, 2013
Premium waterfront sites were soggy at best. There was no grass in between sites to wick away the mud. We requested straw which was delivered promptly. The shower rooms are in need of mold removal or tiling again. They were not as clean as previous years. We did not make yearly advance ressies as we have in the past.

everyone looks nice, and really helpful we enjoyed our stay, then coming there for the past 20 years, Mark and his family really take care the campground.
Aug 03, 2013
We so enjoyed camping by the relaxing sound of the river. Tubing then relaxing in the pool was perfect. The playground was first rate and the staff was very friendly.
Aug 03, 2013
The expense of the campground has gotten to the outragous point. Nightly camping should not be more than a hotel.
Aug 03, 2013
Internet wifi would not work at all on site 40. No excuse for this with the technology available now .
