The free way is in the backyard of this KOA. it is very loud all night. Also, I was pretty bummed I was not allowed to stay for the cheaper "tent, no hook-ups" price considering I was planning to sleep in my car and not use any kind of hook-ups. I only needed to use the shower facility. Since all the "tent, no hook-up" sites were taken, I had to pay $10 extra for no gained benefit.

We thank you for staying with us on your overnight stay in the area! We are sorry that the highway bothered you... As far as the site rate, if the type site was all that was available that night and you occupied the site (so no one else could rent it) that is the rate of that site per night.

Helpful staff, nice sites tho a little close. Very well cared for park, loved the walking trails. Convenient to many attractions.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you got to visit with us and we hope to see you again in the future! :) We are also glad that you got to take advantage of our newly renovated trails. We have been enjoying them as well. Here's to a fantastic camping season for you. Enjoy!

Nice campground but too much noise from interstate. Also turn leaving for interstate is almost blind to the left in a coach.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for your stay with us and enjoyed having you with us. We are sorry that you were bothered by the highway. That, unfortunately is something that goes along with the convenience of easy on and off access. We will see if there are some trees to trim to help with the leaving. Thank you!

Great and close to the interstate. Super friendly staff. BUT it's got a horrible entrance to negotiate and short sites that were hard to get into. Full hookups fine, good for overnight. Not a destination for this family.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us this past visit to the area! We enjoyed chatting with you! We wanted to let you all know that we had plans to make some super sites in that area this year, they have been postponed, but hope to have them in before next season. So stay tuned we are always working!

Good place to stay while around Ashville. Could use a little updating, but otherwise OK.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us while here in the Asheville area! We hope you enjoyed your visit. As with everything, we have a "to do" list that we are constantly working on. We have already updated both bath houses, some cabins, game room, laundry and some sites. More to come! Stay tuned! :)
May 16, 2017
We could not have asked for the owners to be more friendly and helpful!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We loved having you with us and look forward to hopefully getting to visit with you all again in the future! It was a pleasure to get the chance to chat with you all and share the beauty of western North Carolina! Happy kamping! :)

As always, we enjoying staying at your campground. We picked KOA West as our mountain camping home. The management and staff are so kind and helpful. My son enjoyed the resident cats visit. We'll b back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Welcome home! :) We thoroughly enjoy your visits and always look forward to see you all again. Thank you for coming back again and again! I'm sure Jackie (the resident cat) enjoys visiting with you too! She likes to keep an eye on things, so she will check in on you again. :) Until next time!

May 15, 2017
Staff is great. Not much in the way of amenities. Facilities and grounds clean and well kept. I would recommend for a quick overnight stay or if you are seeing the local sights and not spending time on the grounds. We live local and may not be back for a quick weekend like we usually camp. Would definitely use if passing through and need a quick overnight stop.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for coming and staying with us for the "Come Camp and Care With Us" weekend. The Care Camps that benefit from that weekend will be very grateful! We enjoyed having you stay with us and hope to see you again even though we are not far from home. Happy Kamping!
May 15, 2017

Office closed when we pulled in. Saw no staff til next am. Our site extremely loud traffic noise. Sites not very neat and clean. Ok for quick overnight. Would not go back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for your visit with us and we are sorry that we missed you since you arrived after hours. We always let our guests know that we can be reached if needed. We are so sorry you were not satisfied. We wish that you had contacted us and let us fix your problems while you were here...

Best layout. Peaceful and beautiful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so very much for the thumbs up and for choosing to stay with us! We enjoyed getting to visit with you and hope to see you again soon! safe and happy journey!
May 10, 2017
The kampground was nicely wooded and the staff very friendly. The sites were very nice. The only problem was the close proximity to the interstate, especially loud from the mountain background and trucks using engine brakes. We stayed a week, and will come back when we need a quick stop through. Long term I'd rather get a bit further from the loud traffic.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We enjoyed having you stay with us! Glad you got to do and see what you wanted to while here. We are very sorry that the highway bothered you though, the one problem we can't do anything about. We are located here for the convenience of our guests. We do hope to see you again!
May 10, 2017
Great stop for an overnight; handy to the interstate. Very friendly and helpful staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us! We enjoyed your visit, even though it was a short one. Hope to see you all again in the future! Safe journey and happy kamping! :)

The staff was very pleasant and inviting. The shower house and bathrooms were great and clean. Being able to wash dishes outside the bathhouse was awesome. However, this KOA was more geared to campers and RVS, not tents. Both our family and the family next to us had problems with the tent site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so very glad you chose us to stay with us for your visit to the area! We are sorry you had issues with your site. Please, keep in mind that we are have upgrades coming in the future, so stay tuned! I hope that you will give us another try. We would love to see your smiling faces again. :)
May 09, 2017
Very friendly staff. The site was in excellent condition (patio site) and very level. Campground was very quiet (I-40 noise, but that was expected and not bad inside the camper).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the thumbs up and for choosing to stay with us! We truly enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again in the future! It is always nice to visit with our gusts and see their smiling faces! :)

Campsite B14 is horrible to tent camp in when it is raining, and it was raining the whole time we were there. The place to put up the tent is lower than the rest of the sirt

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for choosing us to stay with on your weekend here in the area. We are so sorry it rained. we know that kinda stinks when you are camping. Please, stay tuned, because we do have some upgrades planned for the future for these sites. We are sorry you had an issue with yours...
May 08, 2017
The owners of this KOA care about their customers. Very helpful with local questions, printed tickets for us, helped us find RV parts. Bathrooms were spotless.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We truly enjoyed visiting with you and hope that we get to see you all again in the future! We just love to meet new people and hear what they are up to and all about their travels! Best wishes and safe travels! :)

This would be more of a stop over koa the best that we could tell. It would be nice for late arrival to have escort by golf cart to camp site's .this is always helpful to us. We weren't the only ones to drive around several times not very many lights. But we love KOA camping

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for visiting with us! We are very sorry that you didn't have an escort after hours. During our main season, we do have extra help to do that for our guests, right now we are working with a smaller staff. Hopefully we will get to help you out in the future! Happy Kamping! :)
May 08, 2017
Ran out of hot water. Nice to have all the needed info in an envelope...we arrived after closing. Nice to have heaters in the shower area

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us this last visit! You happened to get a very cold and wet weekend that was for sure. I'm sorry that you ran out of hot water, that is very unusual, but not surprising since it was so cold and we were a very full park. We will have to look into another water tank. :)
May 07, 2017
Nice people and campground. Our site was near the office area and it was quite. Would not like being on the back row as 1-40 noise would be bad. Would recommend they put up noise barriers for interstate noise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for coming to stay with us! We did enjoy visiting with you. We are sorry that you were bothered by the highway noise. Unfortunately, we have looked into barriers and were told by engineers that it would not fix the problem due to our mountain terrain. We did try and will continue!
May 06, 2017
Loud road noise

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We would like to thank you for staying with us! And as always, welcome you back. We are sorry you were bothered by the highway noise. We are located where we are for the convenience of guests for easy on and off access and close to area attractions. This is a feature that many KOAs are known for.
May 04, 2017
We stopped here for an overnight stay on the way to our final destination. The campground was adequate and the hosts very friendly. The interstate noise was very loud, but it was very convenient to the highway.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As always, we thank you for your over night stay with us! :) Wish we could have had more time to visit, but hope that we will get to see you again in the future! We are very sorry, however, you were bothered by the highway noise...that is part of the convenience of being close to everything.

Friendly staff; close, extra nice rest rooms. The store had ice cream. Very close to Ashville and Blue Ridge Parkway.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so very happy that you got to visit with us! We are happy that you were able to see the sites and experience the area while you were here! AND...thank you, very much, for the thumbs up on our newly renovated bathrooms! :) Hope to see you all the next time you pass through! Safe journey!

A decent overnight stop. Looks like they were working to improve the overall campground. Just didn't care for the layout.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for choosing us as your overnight stay! We really do care about our guests and the campground. We do our very best to constantly work on improvements as you witnessed. We are sorry you didn't like the lay out of the campground. Unfortunately, there is a limit to exactly all we can fix.
Apr 26, 2017
The campground needs a little tlc. We stayed for 3 night. It rained all three nights causing the site to be very muddy and the roads developed ruts. The owners did grade them but they need gravel. Not much going on this early in the season so we found it a little dull. The highway noise was not pleasant. Unfortunately that is out of the owners control.i have stayed at a lot better koa.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are happy you chose to stay with us! So sorry that it rained though, not much we can do about that. If you remember at check in, we did tell you we put down over 800 tons of road bond on our road this past year. We do care about our campground and our guests. It is a constant work in progress.
Apr 25, 2017
Everything went ok. Walking trail is very nice, kids enjoyed the playground. Place was decently clean, staff was nice and helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We enjoyed your stay with us too! We are glad you got to take advantage of our hiking trails. We love to walk them too! Looking forward to visiting with you again real soon! :)

Apr 21, 2017
This was possibly worst Campground we have stayed in,bags of trash laying on sure when we arrived still there when we left the next day at 11:00,picnic table was unusable due to the fact the only room to set it was on a hill,road was washed out campsite was very muddy and almost couldn't unhook our 5th wheel because of angle from site to road was a drop-off,site too small for rig
Apr 20, 2017
The site wasn't very level and they stated on their blurb that they had wifi on the site we booked when we got there they said that you had to go to the office for wifi. Poor as we chose this campground because of the wifi

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very sorry that you had trouble with our Wi-Fi. We did also let you know when registering, that we are working on repairs to our wi-fi due to a direct lightning hit. We are doing our best to upgrade as well as repair our wi-fi to make it available to all our guests. It is an ongoing process.
Apr 19, 2017
The staff is very friendly. The back in sites are level but narrow, could be an ankle bender when you step out your door. Having cable was great, WiFi never connected. Toilet and showers were well kept. Branches need to be trimmed along roadways and in sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We thank you for staying with us! We would like to let you know that we do have plans to renovate and enlarge the sites you were in. Hopefully in the future, they will be done for another visit. We are always trying to improve on the park and it,like most things, is an ongoing process.
Apr 18, 2017
The staff at KOA were very friendly and accommodating to us. I thought I had booked a stay with sewer, but It was my mistake & they still offered a site with sewer hook ups. Very friendly & helpful.

We loved having you stay with us and can't wait to spend more time with you in the future! As always, we wish you Happy Kamping!

Great Campsite and Fantastic Staff! Incredibly accommodating. Only flaw is the truck stop below the property and occasional road noise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and enjoy all the surrounding area has to offer! We would love to have you back! So sorry for the truck stop. Unfortunately, they, just like us are located off the highway for easy access. Sure do wish we could move the campground further away from it all.
