Rate is based on weekly rate. Beautiful RV park. Off the main roads, but close to I-95. You can hear the traffic noise, but it didn't bother us at all. Paved roads and concrete sites. Beautifully manicured and well taken care of park. We will definitely stay here again.

Except for the closeness to I95, this is an excellent RV park. We were here for a month and a half getting repairs done on our RV by the big RV dealer across the highway. Super friendly managers, great staff, very good amenities and facilities. Very good, well equipped exercise room, lots of "free" breakfasts and other meals/specials. We were on a pull thru concrete site in the new section of the park. Wi-Fi signal was very good most of the time, but slowed down occasionally (think someone was trying to stream movies). Close to a large RV dealer for parts and service, lots of nearby restaurants and shopping. We will definitely be staying here again.

We stayed here for 4 days with grandchildren. The park is clean, with easy access off I-81. Utilities were centrally located and everything functioned well. While there was no pool, there was a splash pad that the grandkids loved and a nice playground (right across the street from us). The attendant escorting me to my site took me down the wrong road and then brought me back around on a road with a turn I could not make. I had to do some creative backing (with no assistance) to get out to a parking lot I could turn around in. Otherwise everything was OK - typical KOA.

Great park close to lots of Pigeon Forge attractions. As others have mentioned, the entrance is easy to miss if not watching carefully. GPS can mislead you. Interior roads are a mix of paved and gravel. There are some premium concrete sites, but most sites are gravel. Wifi was spotty. We used our cellular Mifi for an internet connection. Cell phone service on Verizon was good. We were here for a rally and the venues for that purpose are very good. We would definitely come back here again.

I would have rated the park a little higher, but there are a few issues. 1. Overpriced for what you get. 2. No separation from costly "Premium Full Hook Up" sites and overcrowded, overwhelmed tent sites. I'm not anti-tent, but allowing numerous cars to be parked almost halfway on the roadways (it was difficult to back out of my site with my truck), more than two tents per site, and 4 to 5 people per tent, spread across 3 tent sites meant there were more than 20 people on 3 sites and they had no idea of campground etiquette and were crossing through our site to get to the restrooms (and yes, I did ask them not to do that). To the campground's credit, they did eventually have this group move two of their bigger tents to another tent area. That size group was just way too much for the area they were in. 3. The roadways are very tight (even without cars parked halfway in them). 4. Nowhere near the beach to park a vehicle (needed if you have a handicap). On a positive note, the campground is clean, nicely landscaped, the site we were on was nice with a picnic table, concrete patio, and fire ring, and the staff was very friendly. They have a well stocked camp store and a nice small restaurant on site. We probably would not stay here again.

Stayed here while visiting relatives in the OKC area. Easy to get to, very close to two interstates. That's a blessing and a negative, however. Easy getting in and out to hiways, but a bit noisy. Our site was a nice long pull-thru. Interestingly, had to enter from the main road going by the park. No way into our site once in the park unless you came in backwards. Excellent amenities in the park except for the advertised, but useless Wi-Fi. Although we could connect to any of three repeaters, we couldn't even do simple email; just way too slow. They definitely need to work on that service. Also, strangely we had no picnic table (most others did). Not a big deal this trip because the weather wasn't real cooperative for outdoor dining. I would have rated the park a little higher, but I was trying to do some work while travelling, so really needed the Wi-Fi. Ended up having to use my Verizon Mi-Fi and the associated data usage. We probably will try another park on our next trip to OKC.

This is a small, no frills (no pool, gym, bath house, playground) park designed for overnight travel stays. Sites are level, gravel, with terrific water pressure and excellent Wi-Fi. The owner is very nice, friendly, and helpful. Close to Sawmill Café (nice southern comfort food buffet), fuel, Walmart, fast food, and other businesses. We would definitely stay here again.

Lot of repair work on the entrance road. The entrance was on a detour onto one of the inner roadways. This caused a four vehicle backup on the narrow roadway. Took several minutes for someone to come up and say it was OK to stay where we were and make the trek to the office. The girl that helped me was not exactly a ray of sunshine. I would give her a 5 on a 1 to 10 scale for cheerfulness. No escort to our site like I'm accustomed to here. Site was level, long, and easy to get in and out of. It was a little tight getting out of the CG thru the temporary exit due to the road alignment.

The previous posts all have valid points. However, there are a lot of good things about this campground also. I did some investigating and talked to a lot of the seasonal campers. The park is gradually making a lot of improvements. Electrical service was upgraded throughout the campground over the past couple of years. The wifi is being upgraded (I got really fast service). Sites are being upgraded with fresh gravel. Sites are big for the most part. The lake is nice and the mini- golf is scheduled for rebuild next spring. They serve dinner and breakfast on the weekends. Food is very good and plentiful. Definitely a transitional state right now. Yes, very predominately seasonal campers, but they are very friendly. The entry road is rough, but the campground tries to maintain it at their expense although it is a county road. It was just graded when we arrived, but a big thunderstorm washed a lot of gravel out the next day. Not a "high class" resort, but we would stay here again. Would rate it higher as more improvements are made.

We love staying here. Close to so many historical areas, shopping, and good restaurants. I would rate it higher, but they need to raise the canopies on several of the pine trees so they aren't hitting the top of the RVs and the bushes in the middle of the sites makes tow vehicle parking tight. We will definitely stay here again (and again).

This is a mostly terrific park away from the hustle bustle of I-95. The staff are excellent, the grounds are nice, and most sites are fairly level and good size. Their activities for the kids on Easter weekend were terrific. Unfortunately, the price to stay here is just getting too expensive. We used to come here 3 or 4 times a year, but now only come for our Spring shakedown trip because it's convenient.

This could be a very nice park. It is close to Fayetteville and for us, was very convenient for visiting our son. It needs three things to get a higher rating. One, the entry road is dirt and is rough. If it had rained while we were there it would have been a mess. Two, they need a concrete pad at each site. The ground is a combination dirt/sand that sticks to everything. It's nearly impossible to keep it out of the RV. Three, they need more grass. The area we were in, near the front was almost completely dirt sites with dirt in between the sites. On a positive note, the staff was very friendly, the grounds were very clean, and the recently renovated restrooms were nice. Our site was large, with plenty of room. We would stay here again, but it would be our second choice in the area.

We love this park. Recent interior roadway paving has made it even better. It's close to Colonial Williamsburg and lots of shops and places to eat. If they would cut a few more trees that are too close to tight turns and have some limbs too low, I would rate it a 10.

Although a lot of improvements have been made to this park, for the price, I expect more. I can stay at a Good Sam 10/10/10 rated RV park in Williamsburg for less cost and get a concrete pad and patio with brand new asphalt roadways. At this KOA, most of the sites are gravel and the asphalt roadways need repair. Also, I reported a problem with a loose sewer connection the first day we were here and it was never taken care of. They need a better system for tracking maintenance requirements. Overall the park is still good and we would stay here again, but it's not our first choice anymore.

This is a very nice park! I would have rated it a 10, except the roads are a little narrow and it is tight getting a 40ft 5th wheel and long-bed tow vehicle straight onto the site without pulling through and backing up. Otherwise everything here is exceptional! Highly recommended.
