Welcome to the Newport / Smoky Mountains KOA. We are located at the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and a short drive from Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge & Cherokee, N.C. We have a large variety of different site types.
Spend a day, a week, or even a month in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, home of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the crown jewel of the eastern U.S. park system. Swim in the sparkling pool or shoot some hoops. If you would rather, grab some friends and pitch horseshoes or play a few rounds of corn hole. Feel free to grab one of our activity calendars and join in some fun. There are many options to choose from. We also have several different items available in the office, so boredom won't be an option. Laze around in the heated and air-conditioned one or two-room Cabins, or park your RV on one of our large, shady sites. Tent Sites can be found sprinkled around our grounds to accommodate all visitors. Hang out in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Forbidden Caverns, and Dollywood Theme Park, or stop by dozens of the shops only minutes away. If you have the time, Tanger Outlet Mall is located in the heart of Pigeon Forge. Hike in the Cherokee National Forest, or go boating, fishing and rafting on the Tennessee Valley Authority lakes. Bring your boats and Jet Skis; we have a boat launch less than 10 minutes away and this family-friendly KOA has secure additional parking. The Pigeon, French Broad, and Nolichucky Rivers reflect the beautiful mountain scenery and offer optimal freshwater fishing. Pets are welcome too! Pool: May 20 - September 15. Max pull thru is 84 feet. We do offer off-season extended stays (90 days max). Feel free to give us a call for more details.
