Campground was fine and location was good but noise was intolerable. I would choose Maggy Valley was peace and quiet.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate you choosing Asheville West for your recent visit to the Asheville area. Many of our campers like that our campground is very centrally located to all of the surrounding mountains, waterfalls, breweries, the Biltmore and downtown Asheville. In addition, our KOA has easy on and off access to the highway. We enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again.

Friendly staff and very clean bathrooms, but why in the world you would build a campground directly on a interstate!? You cannot escape from traffic noise and rumbling eighteen-wheelers all day and all night. I really wasn't expecting this and I it surely didn't give us that KOA-feeling as promised.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing the Asheville West for your recent stay. We pride ourselves on having a very friendly staff and very clean bathrooms so we really appreciate your comments. Many KOA's are located close to the highway for easy on and off access. We are centrally located to Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway, The Biltmore and many other sights. This allows easy access for our campers.

Our hosts were wonderful. My Grandson loved the pool. My only criticism is that the deluxe cabin was not as deluxe as we thought it would be. We stayed in one in Crossville TN that had a fully stocked kitchen and bed linens. This one had a microwave, fridge and coffee maker; however, we had to use paper as a coffee filter. But that's what roughing it is all about! And I should have asked about it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for all of your kind comments. We really enjoyed meeting you. Thanks for pointing out that even though most KOA's have cabins, the floor plans and furnishing can vary. We hope to see you again and recommend the other deluxe cabin for your next stay.

7 Nights in Tent site, Very loud I-40 noise... but the campground was fabulous otherwise. Clean, fresh and friendly staff. The nit picking of not parking on the grass was a bit much considering the ruts were there already and really 4 inches of my tire vs 10X16 tent directly on the grass....?? Otherwise was a grand stay. Other half of party stayed in a Cabin! That was beautiful (not as noisy!)

Everything excel our expectations, we had a great time!

We love this campground! We have stayed at this particular campground for the last 10 years and it has always been well maintained, friendly staff, close to restaurants, easy to locate and just an awesome place to hang your hat for a night or a week or longer! I recommend this campground all the time to people traveling that way!

Other than I40, can't help that, it was the quietest KOA we've stayed in! It also had the cleanest shower facilities that we've seen in a while. The host were very friendly and helpful too! I liked that they would pick up your trash in the morning.

This is one of the better campgrounds we've been to. Very clean, well maintained, staff is SUPER friendly and accommodating. Cable was ok, Wi-Fi was the best of any campground (not great for firestick continuous use, but pretty good most of the time). Some road noise from I-40 but A/C fan drowned that out completely. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

We truly enjoyed having you with us for the ten nights you spent with us. It is great to get to know our campers and are always delighted when we have you for an extended stay. Hope your sightseeing and activities were equally as good.

Nice camp ground, friendly and helpful staff,camp ground was clean, site spacing was ok. The store could carry a few more items. WiFi leaves a lot to be desired. I have read a lot of comments about the traffic noise from I40, our campsite was right next to it and my wife and I hardly noticed it. Easy access to Asheville.
Aug 07, 2017
Friendly staff, helpful. Clean restrooms and pool area. Grounds and trails kept up well. A few of the campsites (B3-6) are high just under the RV, creating a deep step-off to the campsite when using RV stairs. But all in all, one of our favorite campgrounds (3rd visit in 13 months).
Aug 07, 2017
Great campground. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. They are in the process of completing a lot of upgrades.
Aug 07, 2017
We stayed in the tent site, and it was very shaded and cozy. The people there were outgoing and generous.
Aug 07, 2017
Nice park with easy access to I40 and nearby attractions. Spotless bathrooms. CONS - Needs more gravel everywhere and the entry road from Route 19 is a terrible hazard. Still would recommend to others.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for choosing Asheville West for your recent stay. We are in the process of making many improvements to our campground which will address your comments. We hope to see you next time through Asheville to show off all our hard work.

The workers are very friendly. Very clean but still has that rustic feel.
Aug 05, 2017
My husband and I go to this koa every year always love the stay. Heather is absolutely wonderful. Thank you for another great visit
Aug 05, 2017
Site was uneven and while we could level the trailer, the area we wanted to sit under our awning dropped off a foot or more. Not good! The guy next door was a long stay and had a large dog that did it's business right along side our site and wasn't picked up.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing Asheville West for your recent visit to the area. We are in the process of making many improvements to our campground which should correct your issue. We have a policy for campers asking that all pets be cleaned up after and we are sorry that your stay was impacted by another camper not following the rules. Thanks for completing the survey.

Friendly staff.
Aug 02, 2017
Campground is clean and the staff is very nice and friendly. They have a staff member passing by the site on a regular basis to pick up your garbage and attend to any needs that you might have. The sites are shaded, but very tight, making it not quite as private. It is however close to Asheville and attractions.

Thanks for choosing our campground for your 5 night stay. We really enjoyed meeting you and hope you enjoyed all the sites.
Aug 02, 2017

The camping spaces were tight, the facilities were somewhat dated and the wi-fi non-existent except around the office. I have stayed at worse campgrounds but never one that said KOA.
Aug 01, 2017
I only give it four stars because the noisy highway was very distracting, and the lady at checkout was snobby and not at all pleasant. Otherwise it was clean, accessible, pretty to look at kind of landscaping and nice bathrooms/showers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for choosing Asheville West for your recent stay. We are pleased that you enjoyed our campground and the forest setting. We pride ourselves on having a very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff and are sorry to hear that wasn't your experience. Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey and we look forward to seeing you again.

Very nice campground. We really enjoyed the ice cream social, and will be interested in utilizing the new dog park when it is finished. Everyone there was great! Thanks.
Jul 31, 2017
Fantastic facility! The staff was super friendly, check in was a breeze, and my campsite was just perfect. Thank you!

The bathhouse facilities and main office/bath/pool/laundry facilities were excellent. There were no paved roads for the kids to ride scooters or skateboards. The "game room" is literally a game room - board games. And people were so close their cigarette and pot smoke seeped into our camper. Yappy dogs at my ear.

It was close to all the places we wanted to see, once you get use to being close to the interstate it wasn't so bad. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Jul 29, 2017
Very nice clean campground, very friendly check in. I would definetly stay again if in the area

it was a nice campground the updates they are making will really help everyone
Jul 27, 2017
Place is clean and staff is very friendly. The only thing I would say negative is the noise from the freeway. But it's not their fault 😎

Accessible to Asheville is a plus, road noise is horrible, site parking is level but picnic table areas are not. When our site was mowed the grass and rocks were toward our motorhome.
Jul 25, 2017
Convenient to I-40; site could have used some gravel and leveling. Overall ok.
Jul 24, 2017
Our children enjoyed the playground, the game area, and all the hiking trails.The staff is helpful and friendly.

When we made our reservation we were not informed that our site was way down a steep hill from the showers and the pool, a hill which due to our age and health we could not have climbed except in an emergency. We had no vehicle except our camper which is a mini motor home so in order for us to swim or use the shower we had to pull our camper out of its site and hope there was room to park it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you we were not able to place you near the pool for your stay, however, you did have a bath house three sites up from you, so there was no need to have to unhook and move your van to go to the bath house. We are sorry that was not pointed out to you better when you arrived. We hope that you got to see the things you wanted to while in the area and enjoyed the rest of your stay.
Jul 24, 2017
Crowded , noisy , lots not level, no wifi( I felt segeragated , when I looked at the RV village up on the hill. They had wifi, level concrete pads, near the pool & store.) actual fire pits, not a pile of rocks like my side of the park! This is not KOA standards. I love KOA parks, but not this one!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us.We pride ourselves on making a great stay for all of our guests. Would like to point out we do not have concrete pads on any of our sites yet, we are planning upgrades to all fire pits (they are all the same in the park) and our wi-fi is out due to a lightning strike (waiting on parts). We are constantly working on improvements on our park.

NOISY!!!! I40 Bridge Makes some trucks sound Like a Bomb went off

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing Asheville West for your recent stay. Our campground, like many other KOA's, is located close to the highway for easy on and off access. Unfortunately that means we are unable to control the road noise. We appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey.
