#2 of 21 Specialty lodging in Townsend
Set in what's known as "the peaceful side of the Smokies," the Townsend/Great Smokies KOA neighbors Cades Cove and the countless black bears, deer, plants and flowers that make their homes there. With the tranquil Little River hugging the property line, endless hiking trails weaving through the wooded tapestry surrounding the kampground and swinging bridges suspended nearby, each day at this KOA promises a new adventure. Nearby attractions like Dollywood, Tuckaleechee Caverns (a 25-million-year old cavern system) and miles of tubing and biking guarantee great fun for your vacation. On-site, visit the Little River Village restaurant for a batch of fudge, grab your tackle and cast your line and enjoy free wireless Internet during your stay.

We stayed here last summer when we visited the grand kids.The grand kids loved it and it was a big hit. They live in Knoxville and it's not far. We rented a cabin for a week with all the comfort of home.

We always stay at the KOA Townsend in a deluxe cabin when we are in town. This campground is one the cleanest and friendliest. The cabins are great, even with 4 adults. The deck, fire pit and immaculate barbq grill are great pluses.
