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.

This was of the best KOA's ever. Staff was amazing and very friendly. Loved the mountain views clean restrooms and showers. Very clean pool. Kids had a blast (so did we adults). I felt very safe here. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Outlet mall 5 miles away. Lots of trails

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Good location for seeing Asheville. Site not central but we found it not that bad for the stuff we wanted to see. Staff was very helpful in giving directions and getting tickets to Biltmore house. They worked with us to get us 2 additional nites as we did not have to move to another location. Only drawback to the pull thru area is the Hwy 40 noise is a lot! If you hate freeway noise ask for the back in area. Site was level and Verizon and MiFi work great. Did not use their WiFi. Cable was very good. We would stay here again. Price reflects KOA discount.

This is an older KOA, but in pristine neat and clean condition. The spaces are large enough for some shade, a strip of grass, and picnic table in the pull-through section and very woodsy and lovely in the lower section. I-40 is very close and you can hear the traffic, but it didn't bother us on the upper section. Staff is very nice and accommodating. The showers have been recently renovated and the laundry is priced low and in working order. The cable only has a few Fox channels, but Wi-Fi (Tengo) is free and works very well. I would give it a 10 if the cable had some other news stations besides FOX. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here before. Entry road is fairly steep but doable. Sites are level gravel. Utilities work fine. Although I think the rate is a little high for what you get, it is close to I-40. There is a little road noise. The exit out can be a little tricky as you might have someone coming in the other direction. Their CATV has changed. They are now a satellite serviced park. That is were the pricing is iffy. There is a limited selection. I think they need a different package, one that might include CNN. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good clean park. Water and elect was good. Everyone friendly. The roads are tight but ok. Trees could be trimmed so they do not hit the rv. Roads are gravel and with all the rain needs some repair. Road noise is pretty bad. Price is a little high for me with what you get. Will not stay again. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.
