The camp ground smelled bad because a paper mill close by. they didn't bother telling us up front about it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for choosing Asheville West for your recent stay. Historic Canton is located six miles from us and occasionally, early morning winds will direct the odors from the paper mill in our direction. Evenings are filled with the aroma of campfires and dinners being cooked on the grill. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us.

We extended our stay two weeks. Love the area, our campsite, and the great customer service.

The fire pits. Some are too close to the neighbors rig.
Aug 27, 2017
We stayed here only as an overnight, not looking for fun and games. We found it to be very satisfactory.

We had a very nice stay. This campground is kept very clean and quiet. Can't wait to visit again

Very nice staff, the ice cream bar on Saturday night was fun. Our site was nice but it was so built up in order to make it level you end up stepping out of the camper into a slope. If the camper beside us had used their fire pit it would have been less than 3 feet from our side out! They are installing new fire rings and doing upgrades. The sloped sites need to be widened or flattened out.

Very nice

Nice park. They doing a lot of upgrades, this should make "nice" into great. We found traffic noise somewhat bothersome, just left the AC or the ac fan on at night. They will give you ear plugs if the traffic noise bothers. FOLLOW their directions getting off interstate 40 to get the the camp!!!!! Turning towards the truckstop will be a big mistake.

Loved the camp site, staff was great. Didn't like the dust from the traffic driving to fast on the road at the showers. Didn't like that some dogs were running loose and dog poop had been tracked into the bath house. Over all it was a very nice four days we will return.
Aug 25, 2017
Due to the close proximity to I-40 (extremely close), the noise level made the stay impossible to totally relax which is the very reason for our camping trip.
Aug 25, 2017
Extremely nice people and very accommodating.

Had a great time. Friendly staff. Nice camp site.

Great stay. Staff is friendly. Great grounds. It's smaller and quaint. Freeway close by but not bad. Recommend a long full mirror for the ladies room.

I used to love staying at KOA's when I was a kid and those fond childhood memories came right back after staying here for a few nights. This camp ground is very clean and the people running it are super friendly! If we're in the area again we will be sure to stay here!

Arrived Saturday 8/18 For 3 night stay,friendly,helpful checkin, site was clean,everything was clean. The highway noise was tolerable, never noticed paper mill. My wife really raved about bathrooms and showers.
Aug 23, 2017
Very nice and helpful. Thanks very much!

We came down for 2 nights for the eclipse and rented a deluxe cabin. Very nice and comfortable. We didn't spend much time in the campground though due to our schedule but it looked very nice and clean.

Friendly, courteous, knowlegeable staff...great facilities, amazingly clean, ask for earplugs at check-in...very useful for traveling light sleepers...we loved the scavenger hunt for kids and ample shade for the sites, was very convenient for all our activities
Aug 22, 2017
Our overall experience was 'meh'. The grounds were fine & everything was functional, but the front desk employee (blonde female) was condescending & negative from the moment we checked in. When I asked for quarters for the laundry room, she proceeded to talk to us like kids (We're in our late 30s). The tone was not precautionary or educational, it was as if I'd already broken the machines.

We came in after dark on Eclipse eve and the person on duty asked if we wanted to stay ...and surprise ! ...you had a vacancy ! - we never dreamed you would. We had friendly service and helpful neighbors. A wonderful stay, thank you. Mindy

Campground is in a beautiful setting. Only problem was the smell of sewerage.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for appreciating the beauty of our forest setting. Historic Canton, located six miles from us has a paper mill that produces that odor. Early morning winds will sometimes bring it our way. Most days are filled with delightful sunshine, fresh air and the smell of campfire and dinners being cooked on the grill. We hope you enjoyed your stay with us.
Aug 21, 2017
Very pleasant stay. Nice, pretty location. Awesome and helpful staff and employees. A bit near I-40 but not terribly noisy. Would definitely stay here again!
Aug 21, 2017
Lots of traffic noise from route 40. Other then that the campground was very nice and my dog liked all the trails
Aug 21, 2017
Staff was extremely helpful and kind. Nice pool and nice area to play games. Only draw back was the road traffic... unfortunately I was unable to sleep well.
Aug 21, 2017
Highway noise interrupted our sleep. Needed more gravel around the sites. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The laundry facilities were nice. Appreciated the trash pickup. Overall a nice campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We enjoyed meeting you and thank you for your nice comments. We have many improvements planned over the next couple of years and think that you will be very pleased when you come our way again. Being close to the highway makes for easy on and off access to all of the wonderful Blue Ridge, Smoky Mountains and Asheville sites. Hope to see you soon.

Very clean facilities. Deluxe cabin was great and well maintained. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Pool is super clean. We really loved our stay of 11 days to the fullest.
Aug 20, 2017
Enjoyed the wooded site we were assigned. Campground was immaculate. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. We had FUN!! Thanks!
Aug 20, 2017
We had stayed at KOA when we were younger. There was a long lapse in between. Now that we are back, Ashville KOA was terrific. The staff was the best. Hookups were well placed and the restroom facilities were always clean. We will come back again for sure!!!!!
Aug 20, 2017
great pull through camp site. helpful and kind staff. lovely views around the campground. refreshing pool. clean bathrooms, laundry. have made improvements since our last stay here and we will be back again. have to see the newly remodeled front check in desk. enjoyed a lovely campfire at the end of our day.

Friendly staff. Campground undergoing noticeable upgrades.

staff was very friendly and helpful

For a weeks stay we felt we were given one of the worst full hook up sites. The fence 10 feet from our door facing a full time old motor home with unsightly piping was not pleasant. The huge rock gravel was not easy to walk on even in tennis shoes. Bathrooms were clean but the motion light went out twice, not fun.

We stayed for 5 nights. The campground is friendly, clean, and quiet. The best part was the camp host delivering wood in a mini cooper, with his mastif in the passangers seat. Highly recommended

The Asheville West KOA served well as oyr base for visiting multiple sites in and around Asheville. The staff was very welcoming and friendly.
Aug 17, 2017
Clean site. Friendly staff. Clean restrooms and showers. Would definitely recommend to others. Gave 4 stars because it is not the best KOA but still very nice.
Aug 17, 2017
Every thing extremely clean. We're given the best site in the park. Drove over & damaged 2 landscape ties at site, & was forgiven! Offered to pay for 1/12 hrs extra needed to check out, & was told it was Ok. No pay needed. Thank you from my wife & myself for a wonderful stay, & for your help, assistance, & patience. Hope to see you next year. Bill Hauswirth

Parking pads were a bit short and not very level. Bathroom & shower facility very clean. Office personnel friendly & helpful!

Thanks for choosing one of our Deluxe Cabins for your week's visit to the Asheville area. We look forward to seeing you next time through our area.

This was our third stay at Asheville west. This time it seemed noisy. Maybe it was due to construction or just because it's summer but it wasn't as good as usual
Aug 14, 2017
I had a problem moving my legs . I didn't know if I would have to go home . We paid a day at a time . That was so nice to save our place . We did end up staying the whole time . Thank you for understanding .
