Campground Reviews

Aug 19, 2017
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.

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.

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!

Thank you for choosing Asheville West for your recent stay. We are very proud of our staff and bath houses so we are glad that you had the same experience. We have many improvements planned for the near future which should address your comment regarding the parking pad. We hope that you will stay with us on your next visit to this area to see the changes.

First stay here but not the last,great campground with an excellent and friendly staff.Everyone mentions the I 40 noise and yes it's there,but not worthy of deducting a star.There making a lot of improvements on the grounds and I look forward to returning in the spring.

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 .

Friendly and helpful staff and beautiful and sizeable tent site. Great stay!

Very clean and well-attended campground. The staff was very nice and helpful. Plenty of people there to help with any need. The highway noise is the only thing that keeps it from being 5-star.
Aug 13, 2017
We had a pleasant stay at this site. Clean, friendly, conveniently located. The distant highway sound was not disturbing us one bit.
Aug 13, 2017
The kozy cabins are awesome. The community swings and kitchen are very unique and efficient. Bathhouses are superclean and very central to the cabin location. ALL of the staff were polite and professional. We obtained our tickets for the Biltmore at the campground... 2 days for the price of 1....can't beat that!. We loved our time there, best KOA stay ever!Thank you KOA!!!

Jammed in like sardines.

Our campsites are different lengths and some are better suited to fifth wheels than to motorcoaches. Unfortunately when a site is only needed for an overnight stay, we are sometimes forced to accomodate a larger rig in a less than ideal site. We have many improvements planned over the next couple of years that should help this concern. We hope that you will come back and enjoy the new sites.
Aug 13, 2017
The campsite we were given was complete mud puddles there was no part that wasn't a puddle so it was hard to camp we ended up having to put our tent where we should've parked because it was the only part that wasn't an actual puddle. Also the security woke us up a few times. But other than that the people are friendly the bath houses are amazing and the camp grounds aren't far from Asheville.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Delighted that you found our staff friendly and the bath houses to your satisfaction. Unfortunately, when it rains in the mountains puddles form everywhere. We have improvements planned in the near future that should help this concern. Thanks for choosing Asheville West for your recent stay.

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.
Aug 10, 2017
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!)
Aug 09, 2017
stay was fine. rained whole time so not much to comment on
Aug 09, 2017
Everything excel our expectations, we had a great time!
Aug 09, 2017
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!
Aug 09, 2017
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.

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.

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.

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.
