The road in was a mess. The park looked like it had not had maintenance in years. Would never stay here again.

We're in a big rig, was very tight getting onto site. The cablevision was terrible, could only recieve 1 channel, asked a neighbor, said a box was needed to get cablevision. Although we arived after offie closed, we were not told of this info. Due to conditions there, could not recieve reception with antennea or satellite. Thank goodness we were just passing thru and were only there for 1 night.

Tried to cancel this reservation for several weeks. Tried email, calling which went to a voice mail . I could never get in contact with anyone. I would advise to be careful on making a reservation at this KOA if you need to make any changes or cancel. I love KOA campgrounds, and was terribly disappointed in receiving a response from anyone for the help I needed.

I was a late arrival due to traffic and my packet was ready. The water lines were insulated well because they were expecting a freeze. My site number sign was buried under 3 inches of insulation but I figured it out. I was shocked awake by 4 falling branches during the night that sounded like bombs dropping from 40 feet. Burt was nice and papa John delivers so all is well in the world.

They need to add more gravel so campers are not walking around in mud!

I called prior to arriving and advised I would be late, was told to take a map from the late arrival box. The only map was for site 40 which was up quite a hill for a 40 Ft Motor home towing a car. I also was unable to use cable TV because a box was needed from the office which was closed.

Just a stopover, but easy on and off the interstate and a nicely secluded campground

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 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

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.

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.
Oct 22, 2017
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.
