Bring some earplugs - you'll need them. located next to train track that runs all hours of the night. Also had some extremely inconsiderate neighbors and when attempted to complain to owners they were nowhere to be found. Annoying ducks and geese - watch your step. Bathroom facilities nice the first night and then the weekend came and it's like... More

Haven't slept in 3 nights, between the road noise from I40, train whistles in the middle of the night, obnoxious birds (geese and ducks), and the kicker -- the campsite next to us with who knows how many people (only 6 were registered) arrived after midnight and held a profanity laced dance party until 1:45 am. Office staff doesn't answer... More

Stayed here for one night in a tent site. The staff was not very friendly when I checked in, and my tent site was tiny -- about the size of two or three parking spaces. If I had had campers on either side of me instead of just on one side, I would have felt pretty uncomfortable. When I was... More

We loved the two nights we spent at this campground. Yes there is train noise but t just adds to the experience....lonely freight trains in the night...etc. The river is a source of endless entertainment and we are so glad we secured a site on it. Ducks, kids tubing beautiful sounds...what a delight. The one negative was the way I... More

We came camping during the July 4th weekend and my daughter enjoyed it. A lot of activities and things to do. It was crowded but was expected due to the holiday. Wish there was more information regarding what you can do. We didn't know they allowed tubing on the river so we didn't bring ours but to buy one was... More

We had a chance for a quick get away so we went to our old standby for a quick campout. We've went here off and on for over 15 years. Made a reservation for a one night stay in a cabin. Reservationist stated that our room was paid for in full for $65 for two adults one teenager and two... More

We go to this KOA several times a year. Staff is great, especially Bev who always has a smile on her face. Yes there is a train that runs close to the campground but it really isn't a big deal. Nice and clean. Lots of activities. We absolutely love it. We will be staying twice in May :-)

I stayed here for about 3 weeks in Feb. and March 2014. I hadn't planned to stay that long, but the property was peaceful (mostly), and the local Asheville-area residents were lovely. While I was there, I was among only a handful of other guests, and we all were far outnumbered by the resident ducks and geese. A river runs... More

My family gets together every year here and we get 3 campsites. The staff is great!! We have had great experiences here, the ice cream sundae social, the pancake breakfast on Saturdays and the dancing for the kids at night. One year it rained so much that the river was high and they expected it to get worse, all of... More
