Campground Reviews

The cabin and grounds were clean and well kept. The bath house (bathroom and showers) was exceptionally clean throughout the day. The hiking trail through the woods was nice and well maintained.

The hosts were friendly and made me feel at home. The restrooms and showers were very clean. The whole campground was very clean. I stayed in a primitive cabin and I really appreciated the heater that was already turned on when we arrived because it was freezing outside. I have dogs, so I really appreciated the sink in the outside camping kitchen. I appreciated the hot water in the sink too.

Stayed only one night on our way to family. Staff very nice and helpful. You can tell they have been working on improvements. bathrooms were clean- grounds need a bit of work. Highway nearby so some noise-weather was cool so our windows were closed not an issue at this time of year.

They were draining pool along with plaster / paint they used to fix the pool right into the ditch to go right into the waterways of the smokies I have pictures of you like I may send to the North Carolina environment protection agency I am extremely upset with what I saw going on at this koa alsoit was no small amount it made the entire ditch white they have no regard for the environment ..shame

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We hired a licensed NC provider to do the work and verified NO chemicals were being dumped into the environment. It was all water clean up. We recovered almost all the plaster that was left after the process. We care deeply about the environment and wish this had been brought to our attention sooner so additional steps could have been taken at the beginning of the process.

This place was pretty great. The bathroom was outrageously nice and well kept. Folks up front were friendly. Decent location, could be closer to hikes, but you can’t do much about that at this point. Overall, it was great for the rate. The state parks have gotten too expensive for the most part, so glad this is here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We do our best to make pleasant memories for all of our guests. Please come back again.
Nov 14, 2017
Our stay was great and the staff was very helpful. The ONLY drawback to this park is the highway noise but I would still stay there again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate that you are aware that there are things we can control and things we can't. We do are best to make your stay a memory that you can share with everyone. Thank you for being a very valued camper.

We make our reservations according to the Pet Policy on your website. We were unable to use the $100 Biltmore Tickets due to the change in your Pet Policy when we checked in (No pet can be left unattended). Our dog is well behaved & sleeps when we are gone. If we had been aware of your policy we would made reservations else where. Boarding kennels and camping sites unavailable on short notice.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. Our staff works very hard to ensure that our guests have a good camping experience. To clarify, pets can be left unattended if they are inside your camper. In the future, we encourage you to talk to our staff if you have a special need - we are always willing to listen. Additionally, the Biltmore has kennels for guests that are travelling with pet. Come again.

Cleanest bath house ever!!!! Beautiful view during our early November stay! Friendly staff. An excellent experience. Hope to return someday and will definitely recommend for those traveling to the area. We went to Christmas shop and see the Biltmore and it was a short distance to both from here!! Can’t say enough good things:)

Very Nice Campground, Great people who run the place, the only draw back is the I-40 road noise. it just takes away from the peace full camping experience. Otherwise great place!

We stayed in this Campground in November so it was pretty empty. Yhe staff we're exceptional and very helpful. The park is beautiful and I especially liked the separate dog play area. It was raining so we did not take advantage of the trails but they looked nice. The laundry room was very very clean and efficient. This Camp is close to I-40 and noisy but the staff put us in the back and it was ok.

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
Nov 07, 2017
We loved it. Clean and tidy. Great staff. Close to alot of cute towns and Ashville.

Nov 06, 2017
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.

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!

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.
