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

We stayed here 2 nights in a tent on a river site. The site was fairly tight to get out truck into but there was room for our 10X10 tent. The view and the sound of the river were very nice. There are two portapots near the tent camping area. The actual bathrooms and showers are a bit of a... More

We just completed a 4 night stay at this campground. It was our 3rd year in a row for staying here. We have always been very pleased with every aspect of this campground. The bath house that we used was always clean and the private showers are very convenient. The management at this campground appears to be genuinely concerned about... More

The staff at this KOA are SO friendly it's really nice. (Especially Daisy) was so nice to our trek america group! The camp site is beautiful and you can go river tubing down the river for 10$ for a whole day! The facilities are great and it has a wonderful Tennessee Mountain vibe. LOVE!
