Close to Asheville. Clean campground. Pool not open, cannot comment. Lots of highway noise. Would stay again if in Candler area. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.

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 a nice KOA. The sites are fairly level and the staff friendly. The grounds are clean. The interior roads are a little tight for a big rig but the pull-through sites are large enough. Water and electric are good and stable. The area is easily accessible to Asheville. We would stay here again. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

Park is about 14 miles from main area of Asheville. Previous reviewers mention the noise from Interstate 40 and I would have to say it is pretty loud and constant. The park is nicely maintained and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Entrance road is paved and interior roads are dirt/gravel. Many trees and they do need some trimming but not any significant issue for big rigs to move around. The pull-through section sites are just long enough to handle a big rig and vehicle. Back-in section sites are a little smaller and do not have sewer hook-ups. Sites are gravel and did take some leveling (side to side). Good spacing between sites. Park has a nice pool, nice laundry room, great free Wi-Fi as well as cable. Typical pricing for a KOA, slightly overpriced. I would give the park a higher rating if the road noise was not so much an issue. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites need gravel. Fairly clean bath house, but low-water pressure in showers. There is no place for your soap or shampoo in the showers. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

Right off highway, so some noise at night. Just stayed overnight. Typical KOA: pull thrus and back ins, wooded sites. This would be a good spot for a nature lover, trails etc. facilities were clean. Pull thru we had was long and we didn't need to unhook . Would recommend as overnight or for weekend. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good KOA. The main issue is the interstate noise. The noise takes a little to get use to but not near as bad a being near a train track. The campground is clean, good shade, and grass to walk the dog. The showers are clean and each shower has its own individual shower area. The showers are a little small but hot water and good pressure. Cable TV has the mail channels and local channels, about 25 stations. Owners were very nice. Again, good campground if you can stand the I-40 traffic noise. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very friendly and helpful owners and staff. Easy access from I-40. Convenient for all area attractions. Nice trails through woods between the two sections. Main section has all pull-throughs. Excellent FREE Wi-Fi and satellite TV. We will always stay at this KOA when in the area. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was convenient as I approached Asheville from this side of I-40 and is easy to get to, like most KOAs, right off the highway. I got a chance to check out the sites before going to the office, the nicer sites with cable were full and had been for months (fall color season) so I chose site #20 on the water/electric side, wanting to be a bit away from most of the other campers. Sites in this section are not level even with 2 leveling blocks up in front, Wi-Fi works well. Bathroom is clean, but has a bit of an odor. It's a wooded area and pleasant enough. It'll be okay for tonight, but will try the another KOA for the next several nights as I explore Asheville. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.

The road to the campground is steep, but doable. Staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed in the full hook up section. Sites and roads are gravel and level. Some turns are a little tight. Utilities work fine. The cat hookup is on the bottom of the box which could make it difficult to connect. With the new TV connection came a new channel set up. They went from 75 channels to 24 with no guide. If in the area would stay again. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here as a late stop-over enroute to Myrtle Beach. The campground is easy to get to from the I-40. It's definitely a stopover but appears adequate for a couple of nights or to stay if visiting attractions on the west side of Asheville. The sites are fairly close together and, we found some difficultly getting a site that we fit (front to back) so we didn't have to unhitch. The night security man assisted us to locate a more suitable site. The roads are gravel and, due to the sandy soil, I can see where rain would turn it into a soggy site. We were in a full pull through,and the back in sites appeared fine. There was only one site that appeared to be a worker camper with excessive clutter. They have a camp breakfast for $3 on Saturday which was nice. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Visiting Biltmore, this was convenient and easy - we were about eight miles west. Site was level and spacious. Cable was very good. Wifi wasn't working, but we had a good Verizon signal of our own. Office help was very friendly and informative. We did not use amenities, but the pool looked inviting. There was some minor interstate noise. We would stay here again.
