Campground Reviews

Not worthy of the KOA prices. Old, run-down park in a run-down area. Only two bath houses for the entire park. Do yourself a favor and book closer to Pigeon Forge. We passed several parks that at least would justify the higher prices.

We stayed at one of the tent sites. We had an enjoyable stay. I would stay again.

Pretty shabby. This was the most expensive KOA I stayed in, but mostly it was an ugly field with some old gravel spots. NOT a family destination. Some reinvestment is desperately needed...

We stay because there is nowhere else. It really not up to KOA standards. 1. The sites are not well prepared. A not level, B black-water connection broken C restrooms cramped (ratty) D dumpsters far away In the end, too much price for the offering.

Bathrooms had no working showers and the remote building had no markings men/women, one shower set up’s plumbing knobs were on the floor. Showers are a basic function of standard service to rate even 3.

Needs updated, very very old.

The park needs some major cleanup and fixing

Very nice park, well maintained. I came after hours and the staff had my paperwork all together with a map showing exactly where my site was. It's the little things that make the park. The bathroom needs a little work but it has hot water!

This campground is NOT big rig friendly. We called and explained our rig and size before we booked. We could not get into our assigned site, had to pull in to a different one. Water pressure went from good to NO pressure multiple times during our two night stay. No grassy sites, it's mostly gravel. Will not return.

Pretty run down and most of the showers weren’t working. Many of the roads had washed out spots or deep holes. It was the worst KOA of our spring trip to Florida & back to Michigan.

Camp sites are extremely close to each other. The overall place is a bit run down and needs basic maintenance. No grass, just gravel with weeds growing in it. Water pressure was less than 20psi, had to run off my pump after filling my tank to take a shower.

Great location near the Smokey Mountain National Park. We stayed here overnight while traveling home. There was poison ivy at the campsite. There are two bath houses. One had no working showers, and the other did not meet the standards we had come to expect in a KOA campground. There were also big ruts in the gravel road to the campsites.

Enjoyed. Thanks for booking an end slot for us

Easy in & out. Level site. Facilities not used. Staff was great.

Friendly staff, while big rigs can get in, it is tight. Very low water pressure, and both bathrooms near us were closed.

Beautiful, clean, wonderful hosts.

Needs lots of TLC . Looks rundown and even though we don’t use them, the bathrooms had caution tape on them, so I guess they were closed. No cable and lots of highway truck noise. Probably going to by-pass this place in the future.

Friendly staff and that's the end of the good. This park is not very big rig friendly. It's difficult to navigate. The first site assigned was too short. The second site assigned was too uneven to level without putting out leveling blocks. The third one worked. As with all KOAs it is very overpriced. This is a $40/night park, not $80/night. These reasons are why KOA is always my last choice.

Way overpriced for the facility. Not easy access off the interstate. Had to go down a windy narrow road, weaving thru trees. Sites were unlevel side to side. Tons of signs for propane, but when we checked in the propane was out of order (would have been nice to mention that on website or email). Cable was non functional. Old rickety picnic tables. Fishing pond was a mud pit. Lots of highway noise.

Camp needs many updates and basic maintenance. The area is beautiful that contains the camp. Workers were friendly and efficient.
Apr 15, 2024
Assigned an unlevel gravel site, with ample level sites empty. Wi-Fi inadequate to hold a signal. No cable TV service. For the premium nightly charge--this KOA needs a lot of upgrades .

Staff was very nice, but the campground needs a lot of TLC.

Location was convenient, but the overall status of this Campground wasn't in line with the typical standards of KOA. Bathhouses were in poor condition, moreover in the women's bath all 3 of the 3 showers were out of order. This isn't acceptable for this price.
Apr 12, 2024
Very loud highway noise close by making it difficult to sleep even with windows all closed, bathrooms were dirty, women's bathroom had all 3 showers out of order, gravel pull in site worn down & septic hook up positioned low in ground making it difficult to hook up and located in back section of pull in site behind water & electric hook up.

Friendly staff. accommodations adequate for one night stay

Campground is abit worn and rundown. Newport is 45-60 minutes from most Smoky Mountains nice activities. Probably wouldn't stay there again.
Apr 11, 2024
Site was narrow and steep. Roads in and to the campground were narrow. The steep gravel hill to the office needs work. The pond was just junk and scum. All 3 showers in ladies room out of order. I would never stay there again.

Facilities and general site were not worth the rates you charge. Your competitors cost less and appear to have invested more in their parks than KOA.

Too close to Highway Noise. Had to sleep. Left to find something 150 mi later.

Nice, level rv sites but the water pipe/connection at our site was too short and we were unable to connect our filtered water hose. Other sites had taller connections�����‍��� Older restroom/ shower building but clean. Excellent dog park area���

Beautiful area and a nice campground. Unfortunately, not enough attention was paid to providing a level site and that is more problematic for a big rig like ours than it might be for a trailer. For that reason, we would probably not stay here again unless we were in a pinch. It's a shame because we loved all the trees and green space...

This location is in a convenient spot but needs a lot more work. From staying here before I know it has recently changed hands so we gave it another try. Although I see improvements, things like bathrooms and hot water should be a priority. We will wait a year or 2 before coming back hoping the improvements will be leaps and bounds from what it is now.

We just stayed one night , traveling through. But this was not a Koa I would recommend. It was more than dated, it had a look of neglect to it. From three showers in the women’s bathroom, none was working . They all had a sign saying “Out of order” . This should have been mentioned when making the reservation. For a 75$ per night price tag a working shower is expected. Will not stay here ag

It is the worst camping experience I had. Electric didn’t work right couldn’t cook. Didn’t open sides we couldn’t get it to level. Didn’t fit into the site. My husband had to walk around to find a site. Couldn’t get anyone to help. The office was to busy about the sheriff out front. When we did find a site it had dog poop all over site. I have been camping 25 yrs. This my first time to

The noise from the interstate was distracting. We know they changed ownership and working on fixing the place up. Hope all goes well.

I suggest ignoring the terrible reviews. We found this campground to be clean and friendly. Decent-sized gravel sites are not perfectly level, but you're in the mountains. We did not need blocks under tires to be comfortable. When outdoors, it's true you can hear highway traffic... but the bonus is the location with easy access off and onto I-40. Enjoyed seeing the cows on neighboring property and had a morning visit from one!
