This is the finest family RV resort we have visited. While I could quibble with the sites being gravel rather than concrete, the gravel is thick and drains well and the sites are level and very wide. We could park our car next to our motorhome and we still had room. There is also ample space between your site and your neighbors. As for activities there are four pools including one indoor pool. There is a complete BMX biking site with many hills to climb and jump over. The dog park is enormous with a separate area for small dogs. Two very well groomed softball diamonds, an eighteen hole disc golf course and a small lake/pond are also provided. The park is huge and is busy on weekends all summer and through the New England Patriots football season as the park is only a few miles from Gillette Stadium. Laundry facilities are modern and available in three different building throughout the park. The large building that contains the indoor pool also has a separate large adults-only area on the second floor. A lunch stand, pizza stand, and ice cream stand is open Friday night and on weekends. Checkin on a Friday afternoon and evening is very busy, but the staff is very efficient and friendly. The Wi-Fi connectivity is sensational, but the volume of data you are downloading is monitored and managed. The security is the best I've seen with individual six digit passcodes for both your motorhome and towed vehicle. The office supplies some good information on driving to a "T" station to catch a train into downtown Boston which is difficult to drive in and parking is limited and very expensive. We will come here again when we return to the Boston area. We stayed here for 14 days and paid $65 per night with the weekly stay discount.

This was our second visit to this park. We stayed for one week back in 2009. Very nice park with trees and many on site activities as well as shuttle service directly to and from your rig and the Turning Stone Resort and Casino. This was just a one night stay and as before the sites, utilities, and Wi-Fi are very good. One thing I find odd is that many sites while nice and level are not straight. It is as if someone drawing the site plan with a birds-eye view thought it would look nice for the sites to be curved for architectural effect. Unfortunately this means if you lineup your rig and tow vehicle in a nice straight line, some part of one or the other will be on the grass. In some sites this creates access/egress issues. Again, overall the park is very good, but I know an RVer was not consulted in the design of the actual sites. We spent one night and paid $45 with no discount.

Nice little campground on the former site of a ski resort. Sites are tiered on hills to provide nice views, but require some up and down hill driving to reach some sites. Staff was very friendly and helped us choose the best site for our needs by driving us to a couple of sites and letting us decide. Some sites are reserved by seasonals, but can be rented when the owners aren't using them. Positioning of utilities varied, so some are best left to towed vehicles rather than motorhomes. We stayed one night and paid $44 for a premium 50-amp full hookup site with the Good Sam discount.

Nice new park still under construction away from noise and traffic of Sevierville-Pigeon Forge-Gatlinburg strip. Roads and sites wide, long and paved. Utilities good. Wi-Fi signal very strong. Pool, showers, rest rooms very clean. Two washers and dryers, but not busy. Good location for entry into NE section of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Don't miss thrill ride of the Tail of the Dragon along Route 129. There are 318 turns over 11 miles. Particularly great for motorcycles and small sporty cars. Park has no shade trees yet, but good view of mountains and countryside. We would return.

Nice medium sized KOA with friendly staff. Few long sites for big rigs with toad. Utilities good. Wi-Fi weak, but we were at site furthest from office. Nice overnight stop on way to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We paid $36 for one night with Good Sam discount.

Date of Stay:

Spacious park with spotless bathrooms, showers, pools and laundry room. Roomy level sites with excellent utilities and good Wi-Fi. Many seasonal campers, but all units and sites well maintained. We stayed in rear of the park on top of the hill and near pool, showers and bathrooms. Huge and beautiful log home on premises is used as the community center containing library, kitchen, TV room, and video and game room. Small lake/large pond and paddle boats available, but very weedy. Pool was great but crowded. Nice quiet place with space to spread out.

Date of Stay:

Nice park with wide gravel streets and long and wide grass sites. Not a lot of trees. Power and water were good and Wi-Fi was strong. No cable TV was available. Some work going on at the park to add/revamp some sites. Has friendly staff. We paid $36 for one night with Good Sam discount.

Nice convenient park located along I-80. Has large level gravel sites and easy to get in and out of. Nice staff. Facilities were good, Wi-Fi and cable TV were included. Has a lot of shade trees. There are good restaurants nearby: the 50's style diner next door had great steak sandwiches. We paid $34 for one night with Good Sam discount.

Nice KOA. Has friendly staff. Better than most KOAs with noticeably wider and longer sites. Has gravel roads and sites, but very level. has good facilities. Wi-fi was OK, but the strength varied. No Cable TV available. Has nice grass around the sites. A very well maintained park. Quiet and has nice surrounding farmland. We paid $37 for a large pull-through motorhome site with KOA discount.

When we made our reservation only back-in sites were available due to the Memorial Day weekend. Not our first choice, but since we were staying for 14 days, not a big deal. On this site, the park is listed as having cable, but that is only for a small number of Premium sites. Our "Deluxe Back-In Site" didn't qualify. The location of trees to the rear of our site prevented us from using our dome-mounted satellite TV dish. Park was busy over holiday weekend, but settled down after that. They have a separate 21 and over pool--great idea! Facilities were excellent. Good power, water, and Wi-Fi signal. Clean restrooms and showers. Excellent food options brought in by outside vendors during the week. Very good BBQ and breakfasts at reasonable price. Location is excellent to most of area attractions and I-25 gets you North or South quickly. We paid $42 per night (weekly rate).

Gravel sites which are typically KOA narrow, but are very level. Especially long sites are those noted with a "P" designation. Good cable and wi-fi is OK. Utilities very good. Friendly, helpful staff. Free pancakes in on site cafe. Other food offerings very good and reasonably priced. Road leading to park looks pretty downscale, but not really a problem, just not attractive. Located right off I-25 providing good access to Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Very close to Railrunner station for train that operates between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. We are staying 14 nights.

Interesting park located in the surrounding parking lots of a long closed 50's style Route 66 motel. Owner is very friendly and helpful in getting settled on your site. All sites are gravel, with a few having trees for shade. Very long and level pull through sites. Utilities were good. A nice place for an overnight stay. We stayed one night.

Date of Stay:

Nice small park for a short stay. Grass surrounds gravel roads and sites. Trees on property, but not near sites. Solid Wi-Fi signal, but no cable TV offered. Long level sites with good placement of utilities. Has a nice staff. Convenient right off of Route 40. Stayed here one night. Paid $27 with Good Sam discount. Nice views of cows grazing and some nice bird sightings.

Date of Stay:

Nice campground for a short stay. Nice long, level pull-through sites, solid Wi-Fi signal, and nice selection of cable TV channels with good reception. Utilities placement was odd on some sites: on our site sewer receptacle was 30 feet beyond those for electrical and water. We stayed one night and would stay again. Used 15% Escapees discount.

Fairly typical KOA, but office was friendly and we were escorted and helped to maneuver into our site. Would have liked to have had a stronger Wi-Fi signal and the availability of cable TV. Utilities were well placed and site was long and level. Would stay here again. Stayed one night in a water and electric pull-through site.
