Loved the old still and the "star" lights at the entrance 👍 Friendly staff; would stay again (Class A with toad)

We arrived after the office was closed, but filling out the paperwork was little trouble, and we liked the quiet and charm of the place that we stayed a second night.

I was disappointed with this particular KOA, the office closed at six...who does that on a weekend? We arrived just as they were closing. We were able to but one stack of wood but probably would have bought more had they been open to do so.i understand that it is getting close to being off season, but this is a campground and the office should have been open longer.

Found campground to be trailer park instead. Lots to small to set chairs up outside camper. Too close to interstate heard car noise all night. It was a total disappointment!!!!! ☹️☹️☹️☹️

This is where to stay if you want to be near Smoky Mountains Park without the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowd in Gatlinburg or other campgrounds right near the park entrances. It is only about 25 minutes from the main entrance, and the prices are great & it is quiet and clean. The staff is very nice, and the campground is set up well. The KOA isn't the draw as much as the surrounding area..

Fantastic staff. When we couldn't get our cable reception, a staff member came to the motor coach and changed out the cable box, hooked us up for the final World Series game. Extremely clean rest rooms/showers. Good, level pull-through site with easy access to all services. Thanks.

There was absolutely no indication on web site/calling office prior to arrival that the tent electrical hook up was 30 amp-no adapter left for late arrivals-have CPAP that had no way to connect-gravel everywhere-posted-no tents on "grass" what grass? "roads" covered with weeks of leaves-couldn't tell where "road" was-interstate 40 right bedside camp, ONLY positive very clean hot showers

Friendly staff, clean restrooms and showers. We'd stay again when we're in the area. A little hard to get to along a narrow road but worth it.

Sherrie, at the desk, was so helpful, welcoming and fun!! We have been on the road for 18 years and we can tell you for sure, that first greeting upon arrival at a park, can make or break the way we feel about our entire stay!!! Also, we loved our site !

Very nice stay😄

Shari was very personable, professional. Was working with another customer when I arrived, but when I came in the door she took time to speak. We had to change our plans at the last minute due to "Matthew", and she did an outstanding job for those that were already there and those on the way. Thank you.

I stayed in one of the deluxe cabins at this campground. The cabin itself was very clean and comfortable, with a private restroom, heat and A/C, and comfortable beds--definitely worth the price of the cabin! Check-in was extremely easy, even though I arrived at the cabin around 11pm. The owners were very pleasant and accomodating. Would definitely return!

We were in a 25ft A/S and enjoyed our one night stay with you! The staff was friendly and helpful, and all the guests that were parked around us were fun and enjoyable and having a good time! We enjoyed your chickens and turkeys immensely! Thanks you!

The owners were very accommodating for all of us relocating from Matthew. However, they both smoked right outside the office front door and it carried through the building. Husband is severely allergic to smoke smell/fumes to the point of asthma. Laundry and bathrooms very clean. Roads narrow for bigger rigs.Cable set up outdated for newer rigs and Internet did not work after first day.

It was an average campsite. A little bit too tight for big rigs. The cable TV box required for reception should have been handed out when we checked in!! Staff was very nice.
Oct 10, 2016
Our first stay in a commercial campground, so we can't compare to others. Convenient for an overnight stay while traveling. Restrooms were immaculate!
Oct 09, 2016
Enjoyed the stay, most of the sites are wooded. Forget using your satellite or TV antenna, park provides cable box and control
Oct 05, 2016
Enjoyed our 2nd stay

Koa was very clean and extremely quiet. We loved the campsite we were in amongst all the trees. Staff friendly and courteous. A great stay!!
