Superb staff and a pleasant CG. Not too full during week, but told it was packed on weekends. We stayed here in our class B MH with no slides or toad. This place is a bit off the beaten path and a real KOA CG with emphasis on CG - a great getaway for families. Near Boone "attractions". No cable or antenna reception. wifi good. We changed site easily because our first sit E-1 was a bit lopsided and we have on jacks - site D-1 was more level - to where we moved. We would stay here again. We camped at Boone KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a family getaway campground with lots of CG things for kids to do - but ours are grown. Nearby, but a winding road away from Boone which is full of restaurants and all things related to a college (Appalachian State) city/town. We were pooped after a busy day and just sacked out and watched a dvd movie - no cable or tv.

The campground was quite packed the weekend we stayed, but our 36 foot rv with toad did fine. It's an older campground with many sites and some permanent units, but it is kept clean and tidy. It did have a pool and some play equipment for the kids (again, old). We spent most of our weekend sightseeing which gave us little time at our site. It was a good base camp for seeing the sites of Boone, Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. We camped at Boone KOA in a Motorhome.

As expected, the road was tight getting here. I have a 23' trailer so it was no problem though. The staff was extremely friendly. The site was very level with a gravel patio area. It is shaded, which is very nice. The WiFi is the only issue here, it is very weak...if connected at all. But overall we will return. We camped at Boone KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Hob Knob Farm Cafe in downtown Boone was excellent and reasonably priced for a farm to table restaurant. Just be aware their a little slow once you order, but it's well worth the wait. The outdoor drama Horn in the West is a fun family evening as well

Several miles from town in a beautiful, quiet setting. Road to the park is narrow and winding but doable. Sites shaded, thickly treed, but very difficult to level. Our pull through site had big trees so close at the front that we chose to back out and had to ask a camper if he would move his truck so that we had room to do that. We camped at Boone KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at the Boone KOA several times and always enjoy it. We are the campers that just us our RV to sleep in and are out enjoying the sights the rest of the time, so the fact that a park doesn't have an Olympic size pool doesn't concern us. The staff is always super friendly. You can request a particular site ahead of time if you call ahead and they will do their best to accommodate you. The grounds are well maintained and kept up. The sites are fairly level considering you are in the mountains, usually one or two 2x8's under one side will do the trick. The public road going up to the campground is tight and twisty as all mountain roads tend to be, but they are passable. There is a very large, well stocked grocery store at the base of the mountain when you turn to go to the campground. You can be in downtown Boone in about 10 minutes which is great. The views from the campground are scenic. Fully intend to spend several weekends this summer back there. We camped at Boone KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Boone is a great little town to walk around and enjoy. We enjoy visiting the local breweries. There are two in Boone, one nearby in Banner Elk and our favorite is Blowing Rock Brewery a short drive away. Blowing Rock is great for a full day of walking, shopping and just relaxing.

This park is rather deceiving because it sounds great when you read the description; however, upon arrival you see things differently. Firstly, the staff is very friendly---the lady at the check in desk took care of me and she was very friendly and courteous. Unfortunately, the sites are extremely small---your hook-ups are physically and literally within 6 feet of your neighbors doorstep. I actually had to step on the ledge of my neighbor to turn my utilities on. The sites are very unlevel and every camper I saw, including myself, had to use between two and three boards to level their camper side to side. The access to the park is an extremely narrow, steep road that hugs the side of the mountain with jutting rocks on the side--while not difficult to find, it is difficult to get there. Also, the price for a nightly site is ridiculously high. We received the weekly special of pay for 6 nights and get the 7th night free. Unfortunately, at $43 per night--plus tax the rate is far too high for what you receive. Finally, there is no wi-fi or cable available at this park and because you are on a mountainside the only "over the air" channels you can get are 3-4 local PBS stations. If you use your own laptop connect card to access the internet, good luck. Some days it is OK others it is non existent or so slow you can not even check e-mail. I would not recommend this park or stay here again. We camped at Boone KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

You can visit Boone, NC and its local attractions if you like. But be prepared for traffic gridlock because Appalachian State University is here and the traffic and crowding is terrible everywhere. My tip is to find another place to stay and avoid the Boone town area all together if you enjoy peace and quiet without traffic jams.

The good is that the park was clean and owners very friendly. Pool was small but clean and heated. Views were nice. Mostly Pull through. The bad, Road to campground was narrow, curvy with low limbs. Sites were small, not big rig friendly. We have a 35ft RV, we were in a spot tongue to tail and had almost no room for our truck. We had to pull through to the site across in order to exit. Called ahead and asked about site size when booking, was told they could accommodate us. If you have kiddo's the playground from the 80's. We won't go back. We camped at Boone KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Look for things to do in Boone or Blowing Rock. Mystery Hill and Tweetsie Railrood are fun to do and only mins from the campground. Shopping is close by 5mins to fast food and Walmart. Grandfather Mtn is about 45mins drive but a nice trip if you have the time.

I will use this campground the next time I'm in Boone! The service was OUTSTANDING - I would give it 10 stars! We came to Boone booked at another campground but we could not fit in the spot reserved and they did not have any open spots. We called Boone KOA. The had space and waited past closing for us to arrive. The next morning the owner stopped by to check on us and to make sure everything was going ok. They also helped us map our route to Pigeon Forge TN to avoid the "bad-roads-for-RVs". Outstanding service! We camped at Boone KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We reserved a back in site with full hookups. The KOA website description indicated 50 amp close to building. Our site backed up to the campground playground which could be bothersome for some. There were obviously a lot of full time residents, but also many campers like us, just passing through. The office staff were friendly and helpful. The road to the campground was hilly and curvy as you would expect in the mountainous region, but not particularly challenging in our 37 ft RV. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. We didn't use any of the facilities. We camped at Boone KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed the weekend for a soccer tournament. The campground and bathrooms were very clean and well kept. There were activities for the kids as always at a KOA (pool, park area, animals, big area for bike riding). We always go the KOA when we can't find a new place to try out. The only improvement we would ask is more space in campsites. They are always so close to one another. We camped at Boone KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The good: nice, friendly, helpful staff; adjacent farm animals - nice touch. The bad: wifi is terrible - gave up trying to use our tablets and switched to phones with data feed; site was barely long enough for our coach (40') and no room for the car at all; very tight exiting. We've stayed here twice but I'm pretty sure if we return to the area we'll seek out another campground. We camped at Boone KOA in a Motorhome.

This was our second stay at this park (the first in Oct 2011), the only one thus far we've visited more than once. Being a long holiday weekend, the place stayed packed, but it never seemed overwhelming. While other reviews are correct on various points -- some sites do appear a bit tight, and some units had levelers out, and there aren't grand views per se -- I found the roads from town rather nondescript, and camp amenities are more than adequate. Our 5-year-old grandson had a grand time with the pool, the playground and the farm animals, and made new friends at every turn. My spouse again found plenty to do in the area (a requirement), and we even enjoyed the Independence Day parade in town. This is a nice, family-friendly park, with gracious staff. I suspect we'll make it back here again. We camped at Boone KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first time camping at the Boone KOA for Memorial Day weekend stay. We got there at 7 PM and was able to check in at the office. I asked if they could put us into a pull-through site that I could use my satellite dish. They put us in site # 6 at the far left-hand side of the campground with a clear view of the southern sky. I have a 30 ft travel trailer and it was was a tight squeeze down the crowed streets. My travel trailer just about bottomed out at the hitch trying to pull into the site. The spot was terraced with a grassy spot in front. This gave up a bit more room but most sites are tight with little room to park your tow vehicle. The sites are bit un-level so you’ll need some leveling blocks to make rig level. The small pool at the campground was a nice treat along with the mini golf. The Wi-Fi is strong near the office but gets very weak on the back-side of the park. The campground used to be a working farm back in the 70s so it’s not in town but back in the country. The campground does lack good signs pointing the way to the campground. It’s not hard to find but does take a trained eye to spot the road signs. We enjoyed the campground and we would come back but I think the site prices are bit high given the amenities. We camped at Boone KOA in a Travel Trailer.

For the good: staff was friendly and very helpful. Water pressure and power were great. The rest: older facility and looks like it. The main office and bathhouse need renovation IMO, not terrible, just not up to other KOA cg standards I've been to. The WiFi didn't work. My site wasn't even close to big enough for a 28ft TT. Couldn't park my truck on it, sites are very close where you pull in and pull out and next to one another. Couldn't level my trailer with all the blocks I could safely fit under the right side and deflating my left side tires to 10psi! Appeared to have great tent sites. It poured rain the entire weekend, so it was a muddy mess. Fire ring was some rocks in about a 12-14" circle, so bring your own pit. Lots of permanent sites. We camped at Boone KOA in a Truck Camper.

We enjoyed staying here. Site plenty large and used only one block to level the trailer. The staff were friendly and helpful, laundry room clean, and camp store very adequate. But no alcohol for sale. It is a 10 minute drive to town. We would stay here again. We camped at Boone KOA in a Travel Trailer.
