We absolutely enjoyed our weekend at the KOA! So peaceful and amazing! We will definitely be back!

We stayed at one of the tent sites. We had an enjoyable stay. I would stay again.

Our site smelled like someone dumped their waste line. Other than that, it was okay. The bathroom had a code, I took a hot shower the night I arrived, but in the morning someone kept the doors unlocked overnight. So I was a little worried about safety. I had my husband wait outside.

We stayed for a week to visit family and to sightsee. The site was situated in a central location to places we were going, such as Corryton, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge. We were given a site with a riser deck to prevent water flooding in case of the expected rain that week. While it definitely rained, our site kept us dry and comfortable!

Endroit propre, mais contrairement à la plupart des KOA, il y a des résidents à l’année qui travaillent souvent de nuit donc il y a des mouvements de voitures bruyants. La proximité de l’autoroute 40 rend le terrain TRES bruyant. Je déconseille à quiconque de venir en tente. L’avantage est que le prix est peu élevé.

Very quiet. Staff nice. Tent sites are packed dirt. Nice tree covering. Food and shopping will require pre-planning or a separate trip, but they're not too far away. I would definitely like to stay longer here in the future. Leaving on my motorcycle, I had a bear cross my path on the road out, but this was just cool, not concerning.

This is not the usual KOA site, infact it spoils the image of KOA. 1. Camp sites are near a highway with vehicle noise at night 2. Sites lacked a fireplace, it was shared with another site 3. Restrooms were maintained poorly, some showers were broken and some shower rooms don't have locks. 4. Toilets were not cleaned regularly and mostly out of supplies 5. Wifi was not working 6. Staff was

Was not to bad, the office hours should be longer During peaks season, current hour 9AM to 6PM I think the pool should be open longer in the PM Closed at 8 pm. Shower house has 3 showers only 2 operational

The staff were very friendly and helpful. My family and I look forward to staying another time in the future.

The staff was very attentive. The WIfi did not work. The showers need safety bars and something better on the floor than a small wooden platform to stand on when the water rises because it has a hard time draining. The community meeting area needs cleaning.

Awesome campground location, and lots of fun for the kids. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the way the tent spots are set up - they're very nicely done, but the bordered pads to put your tent on hold water and flood when it rains. I was grateful I'd already planned on sleeping in the car. The guy in the tent next to us wasn't so lucky. Need to have some way for water to drain.

I have stayed at koa campgrounds many many times over the last 40 years and have never seen/had one as poorly run as this one, koa should be ashamed to represent this one. From the dirty filthy bathrooms to the poor showers,and the dirty pavilion with garbage and ants everywhere! The water by our tent sight was brownish and never did clear up after letting it run. Very rude none caring staff.

Quaint little campground. Would have enjoyed a later pool close time, given our late arrival...but our site was clean and the camground quiet.

Poor management! Disgusting bathrooms! We should have stayed in a parking lot and sponge bathed at a McDonalds. Complete waste of our $40! Really terrible because it was our first time staying at a KOA and our first time visiting Tennessee. I have ran my own hotel and fishing lodge and I will say again, poor management and disgusting bathrooms! I sure hope you get it together and FAST!

Arrived after hours and got to our tent site and we had no picnic table so that was a bummer. Bathrooms are older but clean and the site was clean.

The tent site had a lot of trash lying around when we showed up.

We reserved a tent site. Every one we were assigned was terrible, very un level. We reserved electricity but the sites had only 30 Amp connections. The woman at the desk was way beyond helpful She worked very hard to put us into a great site. We had very enjoyable evening thanks to her hard work. We can't thank her enough. STACY

We asked for tent with electric and water. Got primitive and not told in advance. Did get reimbursed then got 3 more emails saying we paid cashed got cash back. We didn't do that. There was trash in fire pit that smelled. We got there late and left early to it worked but wouldn't stay more than a day. Looked like rented to lots of workers and bathroom had combo lock event though way off road.

This was our first attempt at tent camping as a family. The spot well set up, clean, and peaceful. There was event a concert! It was a great experience for our first try and we will continue to explore other areas with everything we learned during this experience!

Super hot water shower, great campsite, very quiet people. I used the website and booked ahead and they left all our info in the late registration box when we arrived after dark. The highway noise is a bit loud, but it’s really fine considering how wonderful the whole place was. Thanks again for a great stay!

Office manager and staff make your stay seamless! Ver helpful, and when buying wood they even brought to our site. Our stay was over Labor Day and they had so many activities! Very clean site! Couldn’t thank them more for all their HARD work!

Constant cars running through the campground, locked out of bathhouse one night and could hear someone having sex in there, had a woman try to make us move at 2 am

Someone outside the campground was using our electrical outlet via a long power cable. It is quite obvious that this person is stealing electricity from the campground. I have a video to prove it. We told the owner of the campground and didn't investigate on that mater. We were disappointed by his reaction since we paid to have electricity at our campsite.

We had a great time. The grounds were nice and Carla who runs the place took very good care of us. They also are building this nice children's area. Nice laundry area, clean pool. We will definitely return.

The tent site we reserved did not have water or electric but it was suppose to. The rv site is partially sloped so it was hard to level. We could not see the bottom of the pool because the water was cloudy. Most of the washers and dryers were out of service.However, the host was amazing and the sites were clean.

Front Desk lady was so sick. No one told us about the events for 4th of July weekend. Bathroom were never clean. Asked for hand soap for 2 days never got any. The bathroom by the tent was not working. I paid to pick my tent site closer to a bathroom for no reason. My tent site grass was not cut.took me calling and about 3 hours before I got a grill brought to me.Under age kids working and smoking

Very nice

The staff was very wonderful! The only issue we had was campers next to us arguing throughout the night disrupting sleep but other than that it was clean and the staff was down to earth very friendly.

Carla is an excellent hostess/concierge and made sure I was aware of all the amenities and locations of various facilities. She looked up my KOA membership and gave me the best rate. I would definitely return.

Our first time staying here. We were greeted with a smile. Very clean site for our tent. Nighttime was very quiet and relaxing. We will be back.

Memorial Day at KOA, Newport was so much fun! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The campsites were new and very nice. The bathrooms were clean and well kept every time we entered! The showers had great temperatures and pressures! The store had everything you could need! The Memorial Day activities were so much fun and the band added to the fun and laid back atmosphere! Will come again!

Our family stayed for two nights. We had such a great time! The staff was so friendly and helpful. There was a playground for the kids and a dog area. There was even a pool for everyone to enjoy.

The people working there were extremely nice, but it's an old campground in the middle of a major renovation. Our tent site was so slanted that my daughter completely slid off her sleeping pad. Need much better sound barriers on the spots next to the highway. Store has basic KOA fare, but not much else. Good - only a few miles from a Cracker Barrel & bathrooms were OK, Showers were great.

We liked individual restroom/shower!

I had a very peaceful stay and rest for the one night.

Not great for tent camping as the noise from I-40 is really loud.

I was deeply disappointed and frustrated that there were no restrooms available for women. None. There was no shower. There was no toilet. I had to pee outside my car in the middle of the night because you provided no accommodations other than a place to park my vehicle. I could have stayed in a rest area and had better accommodations. Never had this experience in 20 years as members.

All in all a very nice park. I enjoyed my time here. The staff was always helpful and pleasant. Secure Amazon drop location and wifi on site. Cable tv was wifi and it's ok but you don't come to a campground to watch tv.
