Great park for overnight. Office open 24hrs a day. Asked for and got free cable box and remote needed for cable. However, I couldn't find outside connection. Called Office and person came right out on golf cart and located it. Small gray box on electric post with door. Cable Box needs 120V power and connect between inside end of syour cable and TV. Looks like 100 channels. Has small dog park.

Date of Stay:

We stayed five nights and found the park and service to be excellent. We were in our 25' motor home and do not tow. The park clearly states that pull thru sites in the lower cost section may require leveling. I did not notice that (my fault) and found the first night I needed 2" blocks front and back to get level.I didn't want to do this task each time we left and returned. The next morning I asked the office to upgrade us to th newer section with concrete pads for the tires. They had the last last one available at a nominal increase in cost.

Excellent park. We just stayed overnight but will stop again on way home.

Date of Stay:

All good except: 1. Made phone res. night before - 2 nights. Gave PA and Good Sam numbers, credit card, etc. Got email confirm. At Check in- told they had res for only one night. Asked for PA and Goo Sam numbers although given at phone reservation. Did not give site map. 2. Had to ask for cable channel listing which they had to print off a computer file. Only 10 channels. 3. At site - no cable connection. Back to office. Said no cable at section assigned so I had to move. Even though they had to print and gave me cable channel listing, never said no cable at site assigned. 4. Moved to new site. Cable reception so bad (snow) only 2-3 were workable - no networks.

Date of Stay:

All good except for cable TV. Poor picture on all lower numbered channels, including CBS and Fox News. Cable hookup not near pedestal - separate post near road but office didn't tell us that. Had to call office. Channel lineup in brochure doesn't match actual on most channels.

If you are RVing with your own ATV off road vehicle, this is the place for you. Otherwise, "nothing to see here." Overpriced, all trash cans overflowing, no service other than security guard upon entry. He didn't want to take credit cards "too much effort". Tried to rent an ATV for about $150 1/2 day. Went to club house as directed and found ATV with keys in ignition. Turned over but wouldn't start. Called and got voice mail. Called back after we left. Site was level.

Date of Stay:

Fine park for overnight. Good 75 channel free cable. Friendly staff. Good laundry. Small (30X30) fenced dog park. Didn't use it but there is a free shuttle to Island View Casino with 8 restaurants. Would return.

One of the nicest parks we have visited in 100,000+ miles of travel to 49 states.It was sumptuous. Big park but everyone friendly and welcoming. Danial escorted us to our back-in site and very professionally guided us in. Later, he noted we did not have a picnic table on our site and, without being asked, delivered one with a back hoe. With surely return.

Date of Stay:

Fine park except for unreasonable delay in checking in. Had reservation. Arrived about 4PM on Tuesday before Thanksgiving and pulled up to Office. At this point, road is one vehicle wide and two other RVs parked ahead of us. As a result, guests in passenger car behind us also stuck waiting as well as RVer trying to get to front section of park. After about 10 minutes of all vehicles just standing still, I went into office. Owner of a 40' Class A with tow was trying to find a site in which he could fit and the one desk person apparently did not know the length of the various sites. After another several minutes, the Class A owner left to find a site himself. We were next. Staff person could find reservation at first although made by my daughter for two sites side by side and she had checked in day before. Same last name. Then she found reservation but couldn't find site number. I see my daughters configuration form on desk and it clearly noted both site numbers. Not to pick on staff, but I felt sorry for the other vehicles caught in the bottleneck. Layout of road at office could be easily improved. Otherwise would have rated a 10 for the park.

Date of Stay:

Unique park. Much open area. Didn't do it but horseback riding on site. Appears to be working ranch. Initially all full hooks were full but offered dry camping and wait list. Got last full hookup sit. No cable but 10 on air channels. All good except couldn't get CBS. Tour trolley picks up at campground at 9am but returns a little late (4:30PM). We took a cab back - fare $16.00. Would return.

Date of Stay:

Fine park. Close to Asheville town and Blue Ridge Parkway.- about 10 miles. Friendly staff. Visit to Biltmore Estate a must - tickets at park office good for two days. Site (F-2) within 1 degree off of level. Would definitely return.

Date of Stay:

Site too narrow even for resort park. Our motor home 25', one slide. RV placed in opposing positions but not told this at office. Neighbor had plugged into our outlet box. Went to back to office. Asked for escort. Was first told Not Available. Then, after 15 minutes escorted. Staff very unfriendly. Cable TV channel line up in guide given totally wrong. On complaint, got a different one. Would not return. Never comfortable due to closeness of neighbors.

Date of Stay:

About the nicest KOA we have seen. Staff friendly. Site immaculate. Great view of city. As others noted, site newly leveled.

Date of Stay:

Fine park. Site was level. Office staffer was very friendly, accommodating and allowed us to get receipt and complete forms next morning so we could get to site and hook up. Cable very good but also good digital broadcast TV. Near stores. Many full-timers but very quite and all with well maintained rigs and sites. Only complaint was that Wi-Fi reception fairly weak. But we were in furthest site from off (No.101). T Mobile worked well. Rate Passport America - 2 nights.

Date of Stay:

On of the best parks we have seen in over 100k miles of RV travel. Rate reflects average 4 nights at premium site with one free night (as first time in park) and KOA value discount.
