I got there after hours & took a listed open site, but when I went to it, a car was parked in it. So I selected another site -- eventhough it said "no water". I spoke with the manager and said that was OK if I could use the laundry for water. He said it was closed this time of year. I said OK, but could I get a discount on the site. He said OK. But had to make several calls to get bill corrected.

I was in one of the 2 room cabins with the half bath. It was extremely disappointing to discover when I first saw the inside of the cabin that it did NOT come with hot water. It didn't say anything on the website about these cabins not having hot water. When you see it comes with a half bath, you automatically assume it will have HOT water. This was not the case. It should be noted online.

I won't be staying here again. Pretty rough for a KOA. We stay at KOA's all over the east coast and this one was definitely below par. Rude office lady, she insisted we owed tax on the bill even though we paid with c card on KOA's reservation site (the bill included $4.12 tax) but she charged us $4.07 more. I finally proved we had a receipt and she refunded the tax. Guy there was very helpful

The staff was very friendly and helpful when needed. The restrooms were always immaculate. We like the fact that it is a smaller KOA not a huge one like some of the ones we have stayed at. The cabin we stayed in worked perfect for us. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed in the off season but found that they were so helpful and kind as we are new to camping. We enjoyed our stay there.

The folks there seemed nice but we reserved a 50amp site but were put on 30amp site. We arrived late and there was no one around to discuss this with so I had to talk it. The staff said I was only charged for a 30amp site and it had to be some issue with the online reservation system. Regardless, I didn’t get the 50amp site I had reserved I confined my reservation said 50amp site as well.


Am so sorry for your inconvenience. The next time you pass thru please let us know so that we can accommodate you. Staff Smokey Mountain KOA

1st time to the area, staff was very friendly and courteous. Bathrooms were very clean. Campground very close to highway, this was off season so the pool was closed and no activity on the grounds. A lot of permanent residents living there. Not much at all for entertainment in the city of Newport. Pigeon Forge about 45 minutes away along with Gatlinburg.

Only problem the waterline should be raised off the ground a little or turned to an angle to make hookup easier.

We stayed there for 3 nights. Last time I was in Townsend KOA. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. It was close to most places including Blue Ridge parkway within 30-40 miles radius.

The employees were very nice. Bath house was clean. A little noisy from nearby hwy but in summer with a/c on Iâm sure you wouldnât notice.

bathroom very clean 5 star but sites very small and close together. also garbage dump right in front of the site and smelled. sewer did not drain properly. most of sites occupied by long term people. looked like a trailer park and not a nice one.

Clean and friendly. Showers need to be updated and made a bit larger, need a disabled shower stall. Sites were nice some could use some leveling work, took some doing and shims to get level. But it was in a beautiful area and the staff was so nice that we overlooked the problems.
Oct 22, 2017
Very friendly and helpful staff. Sites okay but not very level. Nice and clean facilities. Would stay there again.

Crowded spaces & narrow roads. Not impressed. Somewhat difficult to get to. Lotâs of highway noise.

Just OK for an overnight stay. We were disappointed in the crappy cable TV setup requiring an adapter to be plugged into our TV ...which we could not do since our TV was flat mounted to our RV wall. Also, this KOA was completely out of bagged ice which is not acceptable. Staff was as helpful as they could be.
