We camped here in the winter and were among the few non-permanent campers here. The pool, pony rides, restaurant, and other summer features weren't available as well (naturally), so I can't speak to those. Everything in that part of Tennessee is hilly, so you can't fault the campground for being on a hillside as well. We arrived late and left early so we didn't meet the staff in person. That all said, there was something droopy about the place. The roads and sites weren't well maintained. We were on route to visiting someone further south in Tennessee and this was a perfectly adequate stopping spot. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This is very near the ETSU Museum of Natural History and Fossil Site in Grey TN, a very well done museum about an unexpected find of fossils exposed when they were building a road. The fossil dig is on the grounds of the museum so you can see them working during warm weather. You can look through windows and view the indoor work areas where cleaning and classifying takes place.

I would have to agree with most that is not the best KOA but certainly not the worst. Friendliness of the staff boosts its rating significantly. I've been here before and finding a way to level my rig is always an issue. Seems to me they could get a tractor with a blade on it and level these sites a little better. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Motorhome.

You may need fifty feet of water hose and the same for television cable depending on the site you are assigned.

The site we were assigned was level which has been a rarity on our trip.

The staff are the most pleasant and accommodating that we have come along in a long time. They make you feel at home and do their best to run a top notch camper friendly campground. It is not about them, it is about you.

They ride around the campground quite a bit and are always picking up trash which is very nice. We camped here Labor Day weekend and they had different activities throughout the weekend, including free dogs and burgers on Sunday.

My wife attempted to feed the nanny goat but she wasn't having any of that business. I guess she isn't partial to carrots and cauliflower.

They have a nice pool and there is a bouncing pillow. Lots of things to do for the kiddies as well as the adults.

We definitely would return here. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Motorhome.

Our Jonesborough visit was a treat. We also visited Bristol Motor Speedway which was most enjoyable for a NASCAR fan such as myself. Although a little drive we went to to Carter Family Fold on A. P. Carter Hwy. in Hiltons VA. It is only open on Saturday for music and is closed other days but nice to see it anyway. Best to check their website before making any decision about visiting.

Not the best KOA, but not the worst. The campground is carved into a hillside, and our site was not very wide and not level. My front wheels were off the ground. Access is reasonable, if you don't mind hills. WiFi however was good. Owners and staff bring up the rating; very nice and friendly folks. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Motorhome.

This was just an overnight stop. To get to it requires navigating a winding , hilly road. The driveway down into the campground is quite steep. We had a pull-through that was actually two sites back to back. The Wi-Fi was good,and the cable was OK. They have a café with lots to choose from and they will deliver to your site. There seemed to be many seasonal people. It was OK for an overnight but if your rig is over 40 feet and you are towing you might want to think twice.

I stayed here as a stopover on the way home. The entrance is pretty steep, but if you take it slow and pay attention, it's not a problem. I had a nice long pull-through site. Didn't even have to unhook the trailer from the truck. Staff was extremely friendly. I arrived just minutes before the on-site cafe was scheduled to close. They kept it open long enough for me to get registered, and parked in the site. The BBQ was really good. They even delivered my order to my campsite. Since this was just a stopover, I did not use the shower or restroom facilities. They have a playground for the kids, but didn't use them. However, the rest of the campground was really nice and I would think the other facilities would be in good working order. My campsite had 2 fire rings. One on each end of the site, along with a built in charcoal grill. The sewer connection was on a steep grade, but going down hill. May be a problem for some people, but I liked how it hooked up. My tanks drained really fast. I would stay in this campground again if in the area. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We were just passing through the area so only stayed 1 night out of the Memorial Day weekend. The rate reflects that it was on a holiday weekend. Everyone was friendly and they provide an escort to your site. We were on a pull-thru site without a patio which was fine for us. The campground was filling up fast with trailers backed up against each other, but we luckily had a site to ourselves and didn't even have to unhook our towed vehicle. This place has lots of activities for everyone (pony rides, pool, playground,and movies). I could see coming here for a week to decompress and not leaving the campground. They will even deliver your food order from their cafe to your site for free. Lovely area and I highly recommend it especially for families. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Motorhome.

The rate is after the military discount. This KOA is not directly off I-81 and you have to travel on some narrow country roads. Going into the property is off a curve in the road and down a short steep entrance. In the campground itself there are two roads to exit the sites with one being very short and steep so you need to decide which exit your rig can handle. The people at this KOA are very helpful and the grounds are kept clean. The Wi-Fi worked great and we would stay here again. We have a 36' RV with a small tow car.

Rate reflects VK discount for a deluxe pull-through with deck and patio furniture. Check in is up a substantial flight of stairs for seniors and those with disabilities. Route into park is curvy with lots of hills. Interior roads and sites are gravel and fairly narrow. Dog off-leash park is long, but not very wide since there is a divider down the middle. Appeared to be lots of activities for the kids. We stayed two nights and would stay again. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here based on the reviews we had seen. Which were correct about the friendly staff and clean, quiet campground. Wife loved the showers. Each bathroom is private with sink, toilet and shower. .Staff knew my sons name and called him by it all weekend. Lots of activities for the kids and not all modern. It felt more like a field day at elementary school, which we really liked. Pony rides which cost 7.00, are well worth it. There is also a Pygmy goat you can take for a walk anytime for free. It's a small campground, maybe 50 sites, so it was pretty relaxing. Some of the sites are also two sites that can used backed up to each other. It wasn't crowded, so we had both to ourselves as did the others on similar sites. The campground is in-between hills so it's very steep in some places. Very little if any level ground. Our site required 4-5" of leveling on one side. Some of the back in sites would require jacking up the back to get the front down to get level. The site map is not close to scale on the distance between sites, I've seen closer, but it's still a little close for my taste. The only reason I gave it a 9 instead of a 10 is some of the hook ups are on the wrong side. They have water and cable between every other site, so if you get the odd site you need 40' of hose/cord to reach and it is just something for the kids to trip over. I recommend the Hands on Museum in Jonesboro for kids and the Bristol Speedway tour is a bargain at $5. We would stay again. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground. We only stayed here overnight on our way to New Orleans. The staff was great and they made the best BBQ ribs. We would stay here again if we have the opportunity...and would also have more of those ribs. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has great sites if you are staying a few days or a few weeks,but if you are in the "long term" area, pick a good one from the few available. The one we had that we THOUGHT would be great turned into a mudslide when it rained. There was barely any gravel so it was a mud hole even longer. There is an excellent playground for kids and the pool is really nice, though a little small. They decorate really well for holidays and happenings like races at Bristol. The staff is really awesome and friendly. The camp store is well stocked and the cabins are really nice too. We were there for more than a year and enjoyed it for the most part, but I really don't know what the nightly rate is. The parties and special events could be a bit loud and late if you are a nurse or someone else who also has to get up at the crack of dawn! They have many activities for children and my grandson had a blast. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Travel Trailer.

What a lovely campground. We stopped on our way south and were pleasantly surprised, as not many parks are open in the winter. The bathrooms and showers were private and immaculate. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept and we consider this a gem. We will definitely return. We camped at Bristol / Kingsport KOA in a Motorhome.
