We spent five nights at this KOA. A very nice location along a beautiful creek. It is within a nice, scenic drive to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. A very nice drive to the entrance of the Smoky Mt. National Park. It has a very convenient nearby store and if you want ice and fire wood delivered to you campsite, it... More

We make an annual trip to this campground right before school starts. We are always impressed at how clean everything is kept here -- our number-one concern. We also love that it's wooded throughout, and we make a point of getting a site near the river because it's very scenic. It's just outside the National Park entrance, and a close... More

It's really a family oriented place, with lots of recreational opportunity for kids (and there were a lot). The sites are a bit cramped, but everything works well. KOAs are, as you know, a bit pricey (about $70 a night), but you get attendants who deliver wood/ice to your site and remove your trash. You can get propane at the... More

We stayed in a Deluxe Cabin for 4 nights in late June. We had never stayed in a KOA Campground so were not familiar with their routine as far as towels go. I knew that you had to provide your own linens for the Camping Cabins so that's why I booked a Deluxe Cabin with linens included. No one explained... More

We go to this KOA two to three times per year. It has great amenities especially for families with children there is lots to do. The campground is on the river which is so peaceful and pretty. I recommend a riverfront site if you can get one. The sites are not huge but they are workable. The staff are helpful... More

I always thought KOA was family fun. I experienced anything but that. My tent site was wedged in between rvs and cabins and extremely close to my neighbors..the Rv parties went on until 1am when I had to go over and ask them to shut it down. No one from KOA had a thought to go ask them to respect... More

We like this campground, and have been staying there for many years. It was preciously privately owned. In past years, it was taken over by KOA and has slowly declined in cleanliness as the rates have increased. The bathhouse is getting older and it, as well as the showers, are not as clean as they have been when we visited... More

We camped at this campground for 7 nights. We specifically choose this campground for the fun activities they listed and the fact that they allowed for our son to pitch his tent on the same site as our camper. The area was well kept, although the site spaces are pretty close together. Bathrooms were fairly clean, however there was a... More
