This KOA is smacked right up against I-40. It's pretty loud from the trucks all night, especially in the full hookups area. Overall, the campground seems old and a bit tired. The pool and office/store are clean and well kept up, but the roads and sites are somewhat rutted. Site was unlevel side to side and a couple branches on the tree next to the site were touching the slide when extended. Roads were not one-way but only wide enough for 1 coach. There is trash pickup at the site between 8 and noon. Area where picnic table was located was quite unlevel. It rained while we were here and we had a small river running through our site, but it went away soon after the rain stopped. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

Pad site was unlevel, had to do a major adjust side to side. Dump station is located and installed backwards going the wrong way on road. No gravel but mud beside the station and the water connection to backwash the black tank had a nozzle that matched or hooked up to nothing. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The office staff was so friendly and helpful that I hate to give a bad review but this was possibly the worst campground we have ever been in. It is right next to the interstate and is, by far, the noisiest we have ever stayed in and we've stayed at many campgrounds near busy interstates. The interior roads are not really big rig friendly but they are doable. However, when exiting, RVs have to go both ways and there isn't room to pass so you have to hope you're the only exiting at that time. Sites are gravel and dirt, a bit messy when it rains. One tree at our site needed trimming. We would have had to back out of the site so we wouldn't scratch the side and top of the rig. Fortunately, The rig across from us pulled out and we were able to pull through that site, then make the tight exit turn. We will not return. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA was a little on the expensive side for what was offered. Our assigned site was not long enough and we had to be moved to an alternate site where we just barely fit. When our slides were extended we had tree branches brushing up against our camper. The site was also not level. The bathrooms were very clean and there was an attendant there when we went to take showers. The road we had to take out was narrow and cluttered with vehicles parked on both sides, and it was hard to maneuver around them. We camped here in a 42 foot fifth wheel.

This came up as a Good Sam recommendation - three 9's.

I have read the reviews and do not understand...

The site is on top of I-40 highway, very noisy.

The sites are very small, on top of your neighbors and a heavy slant.

Compared to many of the KOAs that we have stayed at - roughly all around, less facilities for the kids. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stopped for one night. Very friendly and helpful staff. Decent access from I-40. Full hookup pullthrough site clean and level with fire pit and picnic table. Fuel at exit. Wi-Fi was excellent. Price was similar or lower than surrounding RV parks. Pet friendly, but dog walk areas are just so-so. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the full hook up part of the park which are all pull-throughs. Our site's electric box was a little low to the ground. Water pressure was good. The CATV box is located low on a post with the hook-up on the bottom which is a little hard to get to. The staff and check in were excellent. The exit is a little tricky if someone else is coming the other way. The CATV is a little limited for the price. When busy parking can be a problem. Still probably the best in the area. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is to close to the hwy. Bad road noise and the guy behind the desk is rude. If you can put up with that everything else is ok. Shaded sites, fairly level, and 12 miles to town. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

This was our first time at this KOA. Our spot was a pull-through with good 50 amp electric/sewer/water. The trees are a little low at some places but we are tall at 13.4. The driveway is steep, paved and the office staff were very nice. The park and sites are gravel. There is some traffic noise from I-40 but the location is convenient to Asheville (Biltmore Estate, Downtown) which is about 14 miles away. You must be careful exiting the park as it's on a blind curve. I had my co-pilot go out and check for cars and warn them that were pulling out if needed (no cars came by). We would certainly stay at this park again. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

Easy access and easy to find off of the freeway. Staff was very friendly. Easy access to pull thru site. Very Noisy due to being directly next to the freeway (I40). Campsite was not cleaned of garbage from previous camper. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

There is a lot of traffic noise from the interstate, but at night, with A/C running you couldn't hear it. Campground is very compact, but easy to navigate with our rig, even towing a car. Sites are fairly close together. Laundry room is clean. $2.oo for washer. Some sites have fire rings. There are a lot of trees and some sites it may be difficult to put out your awning. We could barely put ours out on this site. We would stay here again. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

Biltmore Estate is amazing, but expensive. $60 per person adult admission. If you purchase at the campstore you get admission for 2 days for the same price.

Road in is steep but doable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Utilities worked good except for the Catv hookup. It is mounted low on a board. The connection is on the bottom which makes it even lower. Interior roads are a mix of dirt and gravel and when it rains, which it did, become a little muddy. The exit is a little tricky if someone is exiting from the lowest numbered sites. As most KOA's this is a little overpriced especially as regards to the channel selection on the TV. It is limited and could use more than Fox for news. There is road noise but maybe when the trees fill in it could be reduced but it is still there. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
