Nice park--great upgrades since three years ago. All sites are nicely kept and level. Bit tight with all the trees but a little bit of time and no problems. Have to ask at the office for the code for the Wi-Fi code as it is not readily offered but works great. All utilities are in great locations. Permanent residents were well maintained and pleasant. Weekenders are a bit loud but that is to be expected--lots of kids. Would stay again when in the area. Great staff, we arrived after they closed and they still opened the office and were very polite.

There are a lot of full timers in this KOA which was very unusual for us to see at any KOA. For the most part they were pleasant. Site we were in was very nice and plenty of room for everything. Connections easy to get to and we really didn't have any problems. The temp sites are very well maintained and look to be fairly new? If we were in the area again we would likely stay here. The 7 rate was mainly because of the full timers which we were not prepared for at all in a KOA. That and the road construction which they have nothing to do with but it did make it a bit of a pain to maneuver.

Stayed for a week on a business trip. Though it was still below freezing in the night the water worked after about 8 or 9am. Not much goes on this time of year, partially staffed but what interactions I had with the staff was very nice. Grounds keep getting better and this KOA is in much better shape than a few years ago. Owners and workers are working hard to get this one in great condition. Wi-Fi was great. All utilities in good shape. Large cement pads on the new section of the park. Easy in and out, just watch to turn near the office and as it says, go wide.

This place was more like Woodstock than a KOA. There were parties going on everywhere. Not sure I would really call this pet friendly as the "dog park" was messy and small and no place to really walk your dogs without being in someones campsite. Staff is friendly. The park sits right on top of an amusement park so if you have kids this is the place for you as the KOA park and the amusement park gives them plenty to do. If your looking for a quiet restful place this is not the place for you. Hookups for E/W/C were good, sewer connection didn't have threads so be aware when dumping to place something heavy over your connection. Sites were very cramped though we did not have a problem getting our rig with a tow in. Site was level. As far as visiting the Falls this is a great location as the Falls are only a short drive away which is why we chose this location. Proximity to the falls is why they get a 6, otherwise I would really not want to stay here again unless the price was cut in half. Getting in and out of the park was no issue at all except for the rotary off the freeway which was odd to follow with the signs as I am not used to that type of rotary.

Tough park to get to as the mountain hills are steep for a bigger gas rig, diesel shouldn't have a problem. Grass sites. Hookups were a bit odd as the sewer location was on the opposite side as the W/E. We had to remove our tow before we could enter the campsite. Staff was very friendly. Nice scenery in the park. Tight spaces which is why they get a 7.

Very nice environment in the middle of the woods. Lots of room in the camp sites though with the size of our rig and towing you have to understand we take up two spots in the C section. It is a bit tight on the roads in the campground trying to maneuver a bigger rig, just plan on going very slow. We have a 34 foot motorhome and tow a Vibe with a dolly. Plenty of walking areas. No issues with hookups and they now have cable hookups. Gray water is dumped in a gravel hole on your site but you need to either get a honey wagon or go to the dump station for black water which is no issue for shorter stays. Great location to tour the Cape. No lights so at night you are really in the dark, bring a good flash light. If you are out after 10pm you need a key to open the gate at the entrance. We would stay here again when in the area.

Great park if you have kids. Incredible amount of things for them to do. Bit of a problem leveling our rig, once again, front tires almost off the ground and still not level. Extremely friendly staff. No problems with utilities except for the cable receptacle didn't fit properly. This is a very busy campground, many activities going on. Sites were large enough not to be right on top of the next camper. Easy to get in and out of. If in the area again we would stay here.

This is a tough park to find and maneuver a larger rig in. We could not level our rig without the front tires off the ground. Office staff was friendly. Sites were a bit cramped. We had no problem with hookups. If we were to go here again we would request W/E only as the full hookup sites are not very good for larger rigs towing a vehicle. We arived sometime around midnight and one of the workers was there to help us get into our site, very dark so it was nice to be assisted in getting into the site as it was extreemly tight. Same person helped get us out of the park as the site we were in was too cramped to make the right hand turn out as a hedge was in the way.

Much improvement has been made to this KOA. We chose the larger side of the park accross the river from the main entance. Large patio and space. The grounds have been improved with nicer flowers and such. Still great location for pets. No problems with hookups or getting in and out of the sites. Helpfull staff. Would be 10 if they had cable and WIFI, our site had no WIFI access.

The pull through sites are ridiculously close especially if the RV pulling next to you doesn't pull in correctly. Our neighbor, when they let out their slider, was literally two feet away and we could hear everything including their walking around. That is way the 5. Otherwise it was an ok park. The owners aren't overly friendly but they were good enough. Water pressure, cable, electric and sewer were all in good shape. Our site was easy to level; however, we did see some sites that were terrible. Had the park been full we would have had problems maneuvering our RV with our dolly tow. Close to town. Not sure on the WI-FI as it was secured and we didn't have the password to get in. Plenty of places to walk our dogs and in a nice wooded area. All in all it wasn't that bad, just very cramped pull through sites. We will come back but will ask for a back in site which all seem to have a lot more space to them. Cable TV was excellent.

Date of Stay:

Staff OK. A little difficult to back into the site if another RV with a car is in adjacent space. A little maneuvering and it can be done. A little problem with leveling the RV without having the tires off the ground. Nice spots to walk your dogs. Quick ride to the horse park which is the reason we came here. By staying in the campground you get free parking in the horse park as well as a small discount on the tickets. Good enough store. We will stay here again when visiting the park.

A storm rolled through while we were here dropping 2 inches of hail on the ground and causing much damage as well as a tree falling on our site; no damage to the motorhome thankfully. The river is amazing after a storm. Site was odd to level the 34ft motorhome; had to unhook the car to bring down the ramp to the spot and still scraped the dolly. Couldn't tell you about the staff as they were never really there. The restrooms were not kept up very well nor were the showers, though I do believe we campers need to leave them clean after using them. A lot more truck traffic throughout the day and night than there was before. I was told that is because they are logging dead and old trees from Daniel Boone NF. Other than that the park is a real nice place to be and to go for walks and visit the state and national forest. We will stay here again.

We loved this park. The river was great to sit by and just watch. The location to Cades Cove and the Smokies was the best. Great water pressure, electric steady and cable TV worked OK, but not great (note..that may be my equipment not theirs). Easy in and out with our 34 foot with dolly tow, help if you want it but we had no problems. Quiet at night as most traffic doesn't go through the national park at night. The only issue which is common with KOAs is the fairly cramped sites and when another camper pulled in our view to the river from the main body of the RV was blocked, but it didn't bother us much as the sitting area was nice enough. We will be staying here again.

As with my last comments on this park, it is a nice park. The employees were much nicer this time. You will still need a good filter and a water softener will work wonders on the rust stains you will get if there for a little while. Sites are very long; we have a 34 foot with a dolly towing a Pontiac Vibe. A little difficult on the turn at the office but we were able to complete it without hitting anything.

We stayed at the campground for a full year that is why the price was set at about 13.00 per night. The owner show a lot of pride in the campground and have been constantly making improvements. They are also very nice people. There is a nice swimming pond and a few fishing lakes. Other campers and seasonals are usually very nice. Lot of areas to walk your dogs. The camp store is fairly small. When it rains, it does get fairly muddy but the owner are addressing it. The only reason I did not give a 10 is the water connectors are underground even in the summer months, makes it somewhat difficult to connect your water hoses. If we move away from the area and come back up I would definitely come back to this place.
