Newport / I-40 / Smoky Mountains KOA Reviews

Campground Reviews

Oct 21, 2020
A nice and quiet campground with sites that aren't on top of each other. The campground isn't "near the Great Smoky Mountains NP but the travel time is easy. It also is centrally located to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville and plenty of things to do.

Our site had a steep incline, it made it difficult to unhook and hook up to our trailer. Sites were very close together, no grass area

As soon as we pulled in, we were treated like family. Safe, clean environment. Masks and social distancing. Complimentary firewood bundle. Great place to stay!!���

The park was easy to find and get too with a big rig towing a car. Staff was very helpful in getting to space. The facility was in fantastic shape, clean pool, clean restrooms and clean campgrounds. The water slide was closed due to time of year but looked like it would be fun. Definitely a nice camp to stay awhile!!!!!

We had a late check in so it was after dark when we arrived. The directions to our campsite was confusing. I would recommend better detailed instructions for late check ins. However, the staff was VERY friendly and accommodating and the grounds were clean.

Just did an over night while traveling. The site was large enough to for my 35 ft class A towing a jeep. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The store was clean and carried the usual needed camper and food items. The KOA is near most attractions but far enough to get out of the traffic. I have stayed here before and will again.

Friendly supportive staff. Every thing we needed was available.

Due to the lack of Covid-19 safety measures i would not recommend this KOA, as the other locations we stayed at had plexiglass and the staff wore masks, which showed much more respect for me as a customer. For this reason i would not want to recommend this particular KOA to families during the pandemic.

Convenient location from I-40... friendly staff... overall, a poorly maintained older KOA...

Unfortunately due to circumstances we couldn't avoid, we were unable to stay there but, when I called to let them know they were very kind trying to accommodate us. We DO PLAN on going back there.

A most enjoyable stay. Nice clean restrooms and laundry facility, well lit at night and we even had delicious BBQ delivered right to our site. Yummm

It was good no problems.

Small but nice. Staff friendly.

The staff was very nice and accommodating. It was difficult getting to the park because of the narrowness of the road. When we got to the park, the trees were not trimmed to allow us to proceed to any site unscathed and our site had trees that rested on top of the Motorhome. Our RV is 13 feet high. We could not deploy our satellite without risking damage to it.

We were only there 2 nights, a stay over on our way home. My disappointment was that the trailers next to us were so close. The fire ring was so close, we would never have considered using it. When we went out our door, we were looking into the window of the camper next door. We were also expecting a lake that was now a dry hole. The people were nice. My grandson said the bathrooms were clean.

It was wonderful. The campground was clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly. All hookups worked as they should. The bath house was always clean. Thank you all for a nice camping experience.

Second time staying here as an overnight stop. Fairly level pull through sites. Pretty close together but ok for a night. Friendly staff. Clean park. Did not use shower house. Wifi was good. Good cable Tv

Helpful, friendly and courteous. Convenient place to stay.

Very friendly lady at check in but it smelled of cigarette smoke, also wearing a Trump hat would probably turn some customers off... just as a side note, that is not a good business practice. Nobody wearing masks. Bathrooms were clean enough, there was a roach walking on the floor in the men's room though. The cabin leaked rain through the side wall, ran over the heater in the wall.

Pulled in after dark and it was almost impossible to see anything Spots were so tight we worried about getting in and out.

These folks were so kind as to upgrade our cabin! It was raining quite heavily when we arrived so we really appreciated having a bathroom inside. Thank you!!

Staff was very helpful and grounds are nice

Great staff , friendly. Campground site we had was shady. Thank you to Carla and John. John checked on us every day and brought our firewood to our site. Grandsons had a blast. Making memories

Sites are VERY close together, so for larger families it's hard to eat outside, play next to your RV or not bother the neighbor. That said, the staff are SUPER friendly, very helpful, and it's a great stop for the night.

Wonderful stay. nice campground. just needs a wifi upgrade. other then that great place.

Eventually had to cancel but staff was helpful and responsive through the entire process

I new they would be busy so I made the reservation well in advance for a specific site where our roof top satellite dish worked as our son works for a NASCAR team and we wanted to be able to watch the race. They confirmed the reservation for the site bujt when we arrived they had given away that site and moved us to the only site available under trees where we could not get satellite reception.

Great staff. Pet friendly. Beautiful site.

The maintenance man had a great personality.

The only thing we can say about this KOA ON THE Negative side is the limbs were low enough to scrap the RV roof. On the positive side the guy parking us moved us to the space next door where it was clear. So they did a great job!

We stayed in a 2 room cabin with a half bath for 5 nights. It was clean and in a great location. The bathrooms are dated but were very clean, shower pressure was good and water was plenty hot. Owners and staff were all friendly and helpful. We looked forward to our morning coffee with them. We never carried a bag of ice or bundle of wood unless we chose too. We will definitely be back.

Crowded, narrow roads and sites. Was definitely not a $50 a night place.
Sep 14, 2020
Sites are not level and not big rig friendly. Too many permanent residents. We could not reach our sewer as it was at very back of site. One lane narrow bridge leading into campground. Rude unhelpful staff. Stayed one night. Never again.
Sep 14, 2020
Quiet camping with level site. After filling my propane bottles, the owner delivered them to our site. Only compliant was cable not working. Camper next to us said you needed a converter box which was not told to us by the staff on check in.

We have stayed twice for one night only. Spaces are typical for a KOA (tight) The pull through site has done the job. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful Have not used any facilities so I can not comment.

I was traveling by motorcycle with my dog and had planned to use a trent site; but heavy rain had me looking for a cabin...score. Great cabin. Very dog friendly place. Good wifi connections. My dog loved it. The bath house had recently been upgraded and was spotless. It looks like plenty of folks decided to stay permanently with their trailers. Quiet and close to everything.

Tennessee needs to put in a truck lane in a few spots to alleviate congestion.

An older KOA with large shaded sites, most are pull thru with full hook ups. The noise from I80 serves as your background.
