A very clean & well maintained park with very friendly hosts. Did not have site escort but easy park to navigate in so not a problem. We would return here again.

Very nice, very quiet, quite a relaxing campground.

Pool was green and unhealthy to look at, also very narrow roads to come into the park, not kept up. sorry needs more work on to ever get us back.

Staff was very nice and helpful. Pool was green and looked very dirty. Fishing lake was over grown with weeds. Aside from that it was a nice place to stay for the night.

We stayed one night and it was nice.

We were given a site on which we couldn't even level the RV. It had rotting tree stumps which were full of ants. The restrooms were old and worn. This KOA really needs updating.

Perfect for what we needed. Close to where we spent most of our time. Short drive to Gatlinburg. Nice people and eager to help if needed.

We have stayed here multiple times when traveling through the area. It is always a great experience.

We have stayed at many KOA's over the year s. We have never had a problem with ants like we did here. The ants destroyed our evening meal the first night there. There were even ant traps inside our cabin!!!

Sites need to be cleaned up, and leveled a bit more. Good overnite stop.

Hosts were lovely, very helpful, baths clean but could use some updating, site was shady, nice,not cable or satellite friendly, cable only if you could use their converter box, which we could not in our motorhome tv wiring. Nice overnight stay, quiet

Parking was a little tight.. Fortunately just enough room.. We were able to have a fire.. This Kamp is clean .. Peaceful and secure... Country scenery Offers family fun... Could definitely stay more than 1 night....

Location is convenient to Gatlinburg for folks who want to see that. We reserved a pull through but received a back in near the back of the campground in an area that appeared to be used for homesteaders and long term residents judging by the junk, growth and condition of trailers.

Campground needs to be mowed and pavement would be nice. Staff were very nice.
Sep 06, 2016
Great service. Great people. The campground was really nice and everything was close.
Sep 06, 2016
Nice for a one night stay over, but wouldn't stay a week. Not much to do if you have kids. Nice people, just not enough for kids. All sites are gravel and tight. Had a hard time getting my 30 ft in the site.

Dated campground but clean and nice folks running the place.
Sep 06, 2016
An ok place. Staff was excellent. Site backed up to highway. Very noisy.

Kamp ground overall is very nice. We stayed for 3 nights in one of the Kabins that had a 1/2 bath which was much more convenient for us. The only real complaint would have been the mattress on the bed, which is very thin. Next time I will bring along an air mattress to set on top to make it a little more comfortable. It is convenient to Pigeon Forge and the smokey mountains. Will visit again.

Very noisy. Can hear traffic from the interstate all night. Other than that it was very nice. Spots were shady. Very neat and clean facility.

Nice small campground.

Great KOA

Was just a quick overnight stay but very welcoming.
Aug 17, 2016
This is a very nice campground for an overnight stay. This is the second time I've done that.The pull through, full hook up sites are nice. The restrooms are clean.

Great helpful staff, nice and shady.

The campsite was definitely one i would stay at again. The staff was friendly and helpful. Great location to any activities you may want to do. Clean quiet and spacious. Very family oriented.
Aug 15, 2016
Pull thru site was not level and it was too close to the highway, so it was very noisy! For the price, I expect a level site at least.
Aug 15, 2016
Easy onand off the highway. Provided what we needed. Downside was that someone was burning leaves and the smoke was throughout the whole campsite.
Aug 13, 2016
Not level enough , we had to add an additional step. We would stay again if we pass that area. We didn't want the Ashville one.
Aug 12, 2016
Staff very friendly. The campground was well kept.
Aug 11, 2016
Highway noise and headlights from vehicles driving by on the interstate was very noticeable all night.
Aug 11, 2016
Needs a lot of work! I I leveled site & trees need to be trimmed. A lot of permanent trailed with stuff all around! Was very disappointment! Will not be back. I will stay somewhere else!

My Son loved out stay at the Campground. Carlie went out our way to make it a very memorable experience. Thanks KOA

The cabin itself was nice. However, we did not stay once we saw the campground. It is ON the highway, not in the Smokey Mountains, the bathrooms were far from our site. It was not in the woods or off the beaten path at all. We did not feel safe staying with our three kids. VERY disappointing. It was our first KOA experience and likely our last.

Over night stop during travel. Arrived after office hours but found our reservation and site already prepared at the self check-in. Very convenient. Clean facilities.
Aug 07, 2016
I just recently started using koa and every campground I go to my opinion gets higher and higher. It's impossible to beat the quality of the cabins for the price
Aug 04, 2016
Great overnight stop. Reminds me of campgrounds in the past in the woods. Little pricy for a larger unit, but that's the only negative.
