Very warm welcome. Good amenities in good condition. Continuing upgrades to the infrastructure should improve things even further.

Campground is ok if you just need to stop for a night. Highway noise is horrible & yes they mention that at check in if you need earplugs. It was clean and relatively easy to get in-out of. Would not be my choice for an extended stay. We were in site 9 for 2 nights. A negative was when you logged into the WiFi it sent a post to Facebook that you were there. What an invasion of privacy, not happy

Campground was clean and well maintained. The only reason I didn't favor it more was proximity to the highway. It's right off the highway and the road noise was considerable. At night you could watch the cars/trucks going down the highway. The actual facility was wonderful and very well taken care of. They are in the middle of renovations so not everything was complete.

The location is good and the faculties ae good but the road noise kept us from sitting outside. We were able to sleep we despite the road noise. As I said previous we could not sit outside because of the noise

Stunning environment with gorgeous fall foliage all around. But not a good camping experience due to the traffic noise all night and a street lamp shining into our tent at B-12. Site was very small, wedged in between two RV’s, not the best aesthetics for tent camping, But convenient to Asheville. We’d still recommend KOA to friends but not this site at this location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad that you enjoyed the local color and the convenience to local site that our campground allowed. We would encourage you to talk to the staff at any campground if your site does not meet your expectations. Many times the staff can make changes to make your experience great. Most KOA campgrounds are near a freeway for easy on and off. Please join us the next time you are in the area.

we ended up leaving early due to an illness but I was a little disappointed the site we had was all rocks. I have Chihuahua's and the rocks hurt their feet. If we return, which I plan on doing in 2018, I would request a more grassy site. The staff was excellent and very friendly and accommodating

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your input. We always make great guest services a high priority. During the off season we work on improving our sites, so will be addressing your concerns at that time.

Heather was great. Facilities were top-notch. The trail was a nice touch, as we have 2 dogs. Bathrooms were stellar. The only down-side was the highway noise. Great place!

Enjoyed everything about the campground itself including staff. The highway noise would keep us from returning.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for including our park in your travels. We work very hard to ensure our guest have a positive camping experience. Many KOAs are located near highways for easy on and off access. This creates some highway noise, which unfortunately we cannot change.

Awesome campground. Very friendly staff. Nice dog park. Garbage pick up daily from your site. Level spot for camper. Truck stop down hill is noisy all night and wifi was out due to -neither of which is campgrounds fault. Will definitely recommend.

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Bathrooms were very clean. Lots of nice places to walk your dog or stroll yourself. Just be aware that this particular KOA is even closer than most KOAs to the highway. If traffic noise bothers you, it’s pretty loud.

It was by far the noisiest camp ground we have ever stayed in . The highway was very close to camp site and 18 wheelers we're going all day and night. Office staff was very nice during check in .

Thank you for staying with us. We are pleased that you had a positive experience with our staff. We work very hard to ensure that our campers have a good time camping.

Very nice campground. Very nice staff. We stayed in the area near the woods in the back which we liked very much as it was very private and quiet. However, the owners are going to change that area ..new design, etc. so no longer will have that area as private as it is now. Campground is in a great location to see the Biltmore and explore the surrounding area.

Sites ok but not great and traffic noise was horrible. Feel it was over priced for what we got.

Great staff.Prompt to respond to any issue. We had a swarm of yellow jackets near our outside fire ring . When notified, the staff came in 30 minutes or less and sprayed. Returned the next day for a follow treatment. Camping spots were relatively easy to get in and out with a big rig. Downside was road noise from I-40 which had truck traffic all day and night. Staff provided earplugs to help.

Friendly staff, clean sites and clean restrooms. Only problem we had was that there was no wifi in the back campground. Not a deal breaker, just a nice to have.

Positives: Just off I-40 with easy access. 10-15 min drive to get to Asheville so a good choice to use as a base of operations to explore the area. The country store has a limited selection but the adjoining bathroom/bathhouse is very clean. Neg: We were in site F10 and found the road noise from I-40 to be bothersome. Even inside our tow-behind camper the road noise was very loud.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your comments. We work very hard to help our guest have a great camping experience. The easy access from I-40 is a positive, but it also does allow for some highway noise. Unfortunately, we can't do anything about the noise. Please stay with us if you are in the area again.

After we checked in and paid for a week I was informed the WiFi was down in our part of the park and they were waiting for a part! The site we had did not have cable, my experience has been if some have it they all have it! I was told I could come to rec room a mile down a large hill! Beware the paper mill, smell is bad and they work all night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank your staying with us. In the future, we encourage you to speak with staff if your site does not meet your expectations. Most often, for a small additional cost, we can find a site that is more to your liking. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about the smell from the paper mill if the wind is blowing from the west.

Parking a vehicle was a real challenge. The sites were small, no space for the car I was towing. The Gestapo Security Guard came and knocked on our RV door telling us to remove off the grass. The second evening, he knocked on our door again demanding we remove a vehicle. Only one vehicle per site. Our daughter was visiting us from another camp site from the far end of the campground.

Friendly professional staff and access to local tourist sites. A little difficult moving in and out of sites as towing vehicles partially block road. Difficult to access upper dump station for 31 ft 5th wheel. All in all will visit again and recommend.

Very nice place to stay. If I had a complaint it would be that the camp sites be deeper for parking and the dump station is facing the wrong way. Still had a great experience and would recommend this KOA

Great time for a camping trip, trees were changing and mountains were beautiful. Asheville West KOA is a great place to stay, clean sites and facilities, very nice and helpful staff. Really enjoyed our stay and looking forward to returning soon. Campers be prepared to hear noise from the highway traffic, recommend ear plugs for a sound nights sleep.

What a wonderful place to stay for a week. The dogs love the new dog park. It is large enough for our lab to run and play ball and have a great time. She would get excited every day to go over and play. The trails through the woods were a favorite for all of us. They are well kept up and easy to follow. The staff and owners are all very friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work.

Great people. Sandy and Heather helped us get some UPS packages shipped after UPS failed to pick-up at the Asheville KOA. They even held them in the locked office overnight because they were so large. Dump station allowed rigs to enter from either direction which is usually a problem for us as all our hook-ups are on the passenger side of our horse trailer.

Campground staff was friendly and helpful and the bathrooms are some of the cleanest camp bathrooms I have ever seen. We had no problems during our stay. The only thing we didn't like was the amount of road noise from I-40. It may not be a problem if you have a camper/RV, but we were in a tent, so nothing to keep the noise out. Ear plugs did help somewhat on the second night.

Convenient location to visiting Asheville & Biltmore Estate. Really nice shower & laundry facilities. Very nice staff. A lot of work is obviously in progress. We had issues with power flicking off, when it rained campsite was very muddy (we were on a steep hill), no WiFi. Back in spaces were really tight. I-40 noise was loud & papermill smell was strong - glad we knew about this in advance.
