We have been visiting Gatlinburg East KOA for over 4 years. This is where we enjoy our down time. The little cabin is always clean and comfortable. The staff are as super nice they even brought a balloon to our cabin on my birthday and sang happy birthday. They made me feel special. The staff has all changed but still super nice folks. We did miss seeing Jeremy this year.

Very clean and well stocked cabin. Customer service is top notch with text availability and delivery to your site if you need anything. Only problem is I wish this KOA was closer to Colorado so we could return sooner.

This was one of the best, if not the best, KOA we have stayed at. It was very clean, the grounds were beautiful, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The cabin we stayed in was a spacious cabin. We would definitely come back again. AND, they gave us fresh cookies when we arrived! It has a nice pool and play area for kids too. Loved it.

We were only stopping through for a 1 night stay on a road trip, but cannot wait to come back and spend some time! The cabin was comfortable, the staff were friendly and accommodating, the grounds were clean and the EV charger on site was a huge bonus! Overall, 10/10 recommend for families looking for a comfortable place to stay near the Great Smokey Mountains.

I dropped in w/o reservations-Jenni and her staff greeted me like I was an old friend. They took the time to get me set up in cabin #24-I was meeting some cuz's to hike up Porter's Creek to the Messer Homestead-turns out I needed to add a 2nd night-Jenni & crew got that for me as well. Cabin was super clean with all I needed for this visit, by the way Pizza is very good. I'll be back-would rate 10

The cabin was clean. The staff is friendly. The RV park is beautiful. It’s a wonderful place to camp. Everything you need. You’re only 30 minutes from Gatlinburg 35 minutes from Pigeon Forge. You’re a little over an hour from Cherokee North Carolina. It’s wonderful you’re out of the hustle and bustle. It’s just beautifulwas there during the northern lights had great pictures of that pe

Stayed in a cabin. Beautiful setting and well equipt. Staff was amazing. This park did an amazing job doubling its size without ruining the landscape. Large mature trees everywhere. Nice level RV pads with full hookups. A great location for 1 night or 7.

This place is absolutely perfect! The new playground is the biggest we've ever seen. The cabin was immaculate. The staff treated us like family. They deliver firewood, ice and pizza right to your site with a simple text message! The assistant manager Rob escorted us to our cabin and even helped us carry in our bags. We will definitely be back!

The staff was the best of all koas that I have stayed at. Troy and his wife helped me with making my wife’s birthday great. Thanks for making our stay great

Our cabin was better appointed than IHG hotels we frequent. Having the cabin deck to bbq and sit by the firepit at night was like home for us. The location is tranquil with easy access to Smoky Mountains National Park. Staff service was excellent. Daily texts about available campground activities was a plus. We'll be back and recommend this KOA to family and friends. Thanks for a relaxing stay.

We stayed in cabin 06. This was one of many new cabins at the KOA Gatlinburg East. The cabin was nice. Perfect for what we needed. For future guests we recommend that there should be some low voltage lights along the sidewalks for those late night returns from site seeing. Please notify those that stay in the cabins of the instructions for the cook top. We will definitely be returning to this KOA.

Great stay, very helpful staff!

Let me start by saying I’m afraid for others to find out about this hidden gem. We stayed in the deluxe cabins for one night just passing thru. They were amazing. We will definitely bring the camper for a longer stay. The spots looked very spacious and paced. Not over crowded as some places we have stayed. Employees were nice, helpful, and eager to please. best KOA we have ever stayed at

The campground is very pretty and we loved having a walking trail right at the campground. My kids loved the game room and the playground will be awesome once it is completed. We stayed in a cabin which was just perfect. I loved that they offer breakfast in the morning and pizza. The staff were always helpful and friendly. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are an easy drive from the campground.

We stayed in the new cabins and they were so clean and had everything we needed for our overnight stay. Sleeps 8, which is awesome, and had plenty of linens for all of us. We loved the private deck with propane fire pit. So nice, that I’m tempted to buy land and haul in a cabin just like it �. We arrived late, but the cabin was all ready so we just checked in the next morning. Friendly staff

The coziest cabin ever! We had the absolute best time at Gatlinburg East / Smoky Mountain KOA. The staff went above and beyond our expectations. The cabin was everything we could’ve dreamed of for our weekend in the Smokies!

My family and I are from Ohio and we planned a stay here at Gatlinburg east so we had easy access to both pigeon forge and downtown Gatlinburg. This KOA has by far been our best! The employees all friendly and it was in the perfect location. If you have kids, the game room is a plus! Showers and bathrooms were clean and so was the pool. We can not wait to plan our next trip.
