Stayed for a week on a business trip. Though it was still below freezing in the night the water worked after about 8 or 9am. Not much goes on this time of year, partially staffed but what interactions I had with the staff was very nice. Grounds keep getting better and this KOA is in much better shape than a few years ago. Owners and workers are working hard to get this one in great condition. Wi-Fi was great. All utilities in good shape. Large cement pads on the new section of the park. Easy in and out, just watch to turn near the office and as it says, go wide.
This place was more like Woodstock than a KOA. There were parties going on everywhere. Not sure I would really call this pet friendly as the "dog park" was messy and small and no place to really walk your dogs without being in someones campsite. Staff is friendly. The park sits right on top of an amusement park so if you have kids this is the place for you as the KOA park and the amusement park gives them plenty to do. If your looking for a quiet restful place this is not the place for you. Hookups for E/W/C were good, sewer connection didn't have threads so be aware when dumping to place something heavy over your connection. Sites were very cramped though we did not have a problem getting our rig with a tow in. Site was level. As far as visiting the Falls this is a great location as the Falls are only a short drive away which is why we chose this location. Proximity to the falls is why they get a 6, otherwise I would really not want to stay here again unless the price was cut in half. Getting in and out of the park was no issue at all except for the rotary off the freeway which was odd to follow with the signs as I am not used to that type of rotary.
Tough park to get to as the mountain hills are steep for a bigger gas rig, diesel shouldn't have a problem. Grass sites. Hookups were a bit odd as the sewer location was on the opposite side as the W/E. We had to remove our tow before we could enter the campsite. Staff was very friendly. Nice scenery in the park. Tight spaces which is why they get a 7.
Very nice environment in the middle of the woods. Lots of room in the camp sites though with the size of our rig and towing you have to understand we take up two spots in the C section. It is a bit tight on the roads in the campground trying to maneuver a bigger rig, just plan on going very slow. We have a 34 foot motorhome and tow a Vibe with a dolly. Plenty of walking areas. No issues with hookups and they now have cable hookups. Gray water is dumped in a gravel hole on your site but you need to either get a honey wagon or go to the dump station for black water which is no issue for shorter stays. Great location to tour the Cape. No lights so at night you are really in the dark, bring a good flash light. If you are out after 10pm you need a key to open the gate at the entrance. We would stay here again when in the area.
Great park if you have kids. Incredible amount of things for them to do. Bit of a problem leveling our rig, once again, front tires almost off the ground and still not level. Extremely friendly staff. No problems with utilities except for the cable receptacle didn't fit properly. This is a very busy campground, many activities going on. Sites were large enough not to be right on top of the next camper. Easy to get in and out of. If in the area again we would stay here.
This is a tough park to find and maneuver a larger rig in. We could not level our rig without the front tires off the ground. Office staff was friendly. Sites were a bit cramped. We had no problem with hookups. If we were to go here again we would request W/E only as the full hookup sites are not very good for larger rigs towing a vehicle. We arived sometime around midnight and one of the workers was there to help us get into our site, very dark so it was nice to be assisted in getting into the site as it was extreemly tight. Same person helped get us out of the park as the site we were in was too cramped to make the right hand turn out as a hedge was in the way.
Much improvement has been made to this KOA. We chose the larger side of the park accross the river from the main entance. Large patio and space. The grounds have been improved with nicer flowers and such. Still great location for pets. No problems with hookups or getting in and out of the sites. Helpfull staff. Would be 10 if they had cable and WIFI, our site had no WIFI access.
The pull through sites are ridiculously close especially if the RV pulling next to you doesn't pull in correctly. Our neighbor, when they let out their slider, was literally two feet away and we could hear everything including their walking around. That is way the 5. Otherwise it was an ok park. The owners aren't overly friendly but they were good enough. Water pressure, cable, electric and sewer were all in good shape. Our site was easy to level; however, we did see some sites that were terrible. Had the park been full we would have had problems maneuvering our RV with our dolly tow. Close to town. Not sure on the WI-FI as it was secured and we didn't have the password to get in. Plenty of places to walk our dogs and in a nice wooded area. All in all it wasn't that bad, just very cramped pull through sites. We will come back but will ask for a back in site which all seem to have a lot more space to them. Cable TV was excellent.
A storm rolled through while we were here dropping 2 inches of hail on the ground and causing much damage as well as a tree falling on our site; no damage to the motorhome thankfully. The river is amazing after a storm. Site was odd to level the 34ft motorhome; had to unhook the car to bring down the ramp to the spot and still scraped the dolly. Couldn't tell you about the staff as they were never really there. The restrooms were not kept up very well nor were the showers, though I do believe we campers need to leave them clean after using them. A lot more truck traffic throughout the day and night than there was before. I was told that is because they are logging dead and old trees from Daniel Boone NF. Other than that the park is a real nice place to be and to go for walks and visit the state and national forest. We will stay here again.
Staff OK. A little difficult to back into the site if another RV with a car is in adjacent space. A little maneuvering and it can be done. A little problem with leveling the RV without having the tires off the ground. Nice spots to walk your dogs. Quick ride to the horse park which is the reason we came here. By staying in the campground you get free parking in the horse park as well as a small discount on the tickets. Good enough store. We will stay here again when visiting the park.
We loved this park. The river was great to sit by and just watch. The location to Cades Cove and the Smokies was the best. Great water pressure, electric steady and cable TV worked OK, but not great (note..that may be my equipment not theirs). Easy in and out with our 34 foot with dolly tow, help if you want it but we had no problems. Quiet at night as most traffic doesn't go through the national park at night. The only issue which is common with KOAs is the fairly cramped sites and when another camper pulled in our view to the river from the main body of the RV was blocked, but it didn't bother us much as the sitting area was nice enough. We will be staying here again.
As with my last comments on this park, it is a nice park. The employees were much nicer this time. You will still need a good filter and a water softener will work wonders on the rust stains you will get if there for a little while. Sites are very long; we have a 34 foot with a dolly towing a Pontiac Vibe. A little difficult on the turn at the office but we were able to complete it without hitting anything.
We stayed at the campground for a full year that is why the price was set at about 13.00 per night. The owner show a lot of pride in the campground and have been constantly making improvements. They are also very nice people. There is a nice swimming pond and a few fishing lakes. Other campers and seasonals are usually very nice. Lot of areas to walk your dogs. The camp store is fairly small. When it rains, it does get fairly muddy but the owner are addressing it. The only reason I did not give a 10 is the water connectors are underground even in the summer months, makes it somewhat difficult to connect your water hoses. If we move away from the area and come back up I would definitely come back to this place.
Not a bad little KOA. Sites are a little cramped for the most part but I was able to get our 33 foot with tow dolly in with room to park the car. Water pressure was very good. Campground workers were friendly, electricity was a little shaky with minor brown outs that lasted about 1 sec. Great room to walk the dogs. Only drawback is the placement of the fire pits but they did the best they could with the conditions. Great location for the city, about a 10 minute drive. We will stay here again
We went to S&H because the KOA down the road was closing for the winter, we lucked out, this is a much better campground in our opinion. I do agree that the office is closed more times than open but we didn't mind that so much. We were placed up the hill and found the park to be clean and the sites fairly level, we did have to drop jacks. Plenty of room for the dogs to roam. Hookups were in a nice spot. Getting in and out was no problem for our 33 foot with tow dolly. Campground owner and workers were top notch, very friendly. Looks like spring to fall there would be plenty of shade as there are trees everywhere. We will always stay here when in Indy, we do plan on staying long term. Only wish there was cable TV hookups. Very quiet at night.
We have to admit that when we pulled into this KOA we were unsure if we were going to stay. I am glad we did. Very nice park with plenty of walking space for dogs. They have some long paths in the woods to take them for walks. It was very quite at night and the staff were very friendly. Campsites were easy to get in and out of. All sites looked level to us and we had no problems. Hookups were in good locations. Had plenty of space between campers. We will stay here next time we visit Chattanooga. 34 foot camper with tow dolly and vibe. We were able to keep the dolly attached.
The good: Grounds are in good condition and clean. Water pressure was the best we have had at any park. All hookups in good locations. Nice benches. Great location near downtown Gatlinburg. The workcamper from SC is very nice informative and friendly, as well as the grounds keeper. The not so good: Way too close to the main road, very noisy truck noise and emergency vehicles all times of the day and night. Lights on the buildings and campground sign are VERY bright (white light) and not pleasant to look at at night. Not many places to walk your dogs. The dog area is very small, maybe the size of a large bedroom. Found the (who I suspect) owners not to be all that friendly. They don't know how to use tact yet at their ages. They are selective over who they enforce rules on, and ignore others who break the same rules (pet policy). They seem to care mainly about the large expensive rigs over the rest of us. If you are older in age and have no kids or animals and don't mind bright lights at your campsite, then this isn't that bad of a place. If your into having little light, pet friendly and off the road try to avoid this place.
Great campground. yes it is very difficult to get a larger motor home in. I had to unhook the car and tow dolly in order to get around the turn and down the hill without scraping but that was the only bad thing about the park. Most sites are not very level. Good water pressure. A lot to do in the location if you’re into nature. Very quite at night. Friendly workers and campers. We would move here if we could!!
Not a great place but not that bad either. Had a little trouble with 33 footer and tow dolley getting into the site. If there were a lot more campers we would have had some big issues. Most of the staff were nice enough but some just seemed to be unhappy. Unless you are Canadian, the other campers have little to do with you. Great place to view the falls and other activities. The grounds were clean and if you have kids they seem to have lots to do. Site were level enough not to be an issue.
This is our third stay here. They have put in more gravel and seems to have taken care of the potholes on the entrance. The dog park is still great but the pools was a little dirty while we were here. Staff isn't as friendly as they used to be, but I also only recognized one employee. Maybe the last owners sold (?), I don't know. WiFi in our space was good and fast. Still wish they would hurry up with cable TV, only get 3 true stations now in the area. We will again come back as this really is the only decent park in the area.
Great campground. Staff very friendly and informative. Hookups easy to access. Nice fire pits and picnic tables. Plenty of room between campers. View of the valley and mountains couldn't be better. Plenty of room to walk the dogs. The ride up is a little steep but we had no problems at all. They could have better signs getting to the campground from the highway but we did find it with our GPS. We will be staying again when in the area.
Pool was fairly dirty. Not a real good spot to walk the dogs. Site we were in was cramped with the other camper to our left. When the living room slider was out it was on top of the other camper. To be fair we only stayed one night on our way to the Blue Ridge. Other sites seemed to have a little more room. Access to and from the camp was easy as are most KOAs. The staff were friendly. If there was more room for our motorhome and a cleaner pool and a better spot to walk the dogs they would have rated in the 8s instead of 6.
Wish I could give better than 7 as we really did like this place but the road are terrible for anything larger than a 25 footer. They had put us in a double site as our 34 footer wouldn't fit in any of the left over single sites they had (yes, we did have reservations). We were unable to connect to the hookups until they told us to go the wrong way on the roads so we could get the motorhome in with the hookups on the correct side. They had only a few Full hookup sites but the dump station was decent enough to make it OK just to have Grey water dump on site. Hookups were OK. Was raining when we got there so it was nothing but mud (nothing they can do about the weather). The fire wood for sale was terribly wet. You may think we didn't like this place by what I write but it is a very decent place if you want to be deep in the woods with peace and quite. We would stay here again, we just might need to be in a part of the park that is meant for a 34 footer or larger. Oh and no lights, best part of it, so bring a good flash light.
We stayed here a year ago and since then it has improved. Last year I didn't know a Tornado had ripped through two week before we arrived. Staff was friendly, sites were clean enough and dog area was in good shape. I gave them an 8 for lack of cabe hookups. We used a water filter at the tap as last year the water was dirty. We would stay again if up in the area. Also, was very easy getting in and out of the park.
Very nice park if you want to relax. The park has gone through some major renovations so if you were there prior to last year and didn't like it you may want to take a look and try again. The staff in the park is very friendly and accommodating. Sites are good size and the hookups are in ok condition. Maintenance is quick to respond to issues. Dog walk area not very good so that is why they didn't get a 10 otherwise they would. We needed a rental car and the staff was more than willing to drive us to the airport to pick it up, unusual in most parks. The park is very clean and the pool can't be beat with the salt water system instead of using chemicals. Access in and out of the park was good; the staff will direct you into and out of the site and make sure everything is ok with you. There are docks on-site so if you have a boat this is a great place. There are issues with the free Wi-Fi as you can’t keep the connection going from most of the park. If you need to get on-line your best to go to the club house where the signal is a little better and it is free. There is gravel throughout the park with new plants between sites that in time should give some privacy.
Park was OK, more of a parking lot than an RV park. Main feature is being right on the Atlantic. Very outdated but there is a lot of sea salt in the air so that explains the disrepair of some of the electrical holding boxes. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Sites didn't seem to close to me but there were not very many RVs at this time. If you have pets, be very careful walking them if you go behind the fence. My little dog cut is paw on some broken bottles and it is a little difficult to walk them on the slope. Outside walking area for the dogs is very messy and no real place to walk the dogs. We didn't have any issues with the electric, sewer or the cable. Might come back but will look for a place that offers something.
All sites we saw were not level. Front tires would have to be off the ground to level the motorhome properly. Staff when we arrived were less than friendly and didn't have answers to our questions. We asked how to get to the park and were told it is a 3/4 mile walk. Next morning's staff were friendly and did inform us that they have a shuttle (golf cart) to and from the park, which was very nice. Laundry rooms had broken washers and dryers so you had to get there quick. The grounds were nice and the spots had a lot of room between them and gave some privacy. Store was OK. Nice place to stay if you want to visit the park but other than that we wouldn't stay there again.
Entry to the park and getting to the site was easy. Most of the staff are friendly, desk personal are a little less than friendly. Entire park is gravel, no trees to speak of and no grass to speak of. Dog walk area is very dirty and others do not clean up after their pets. Back of the park looks like a scrap yard, there is a broken down RV rusting away. Swim area is small and you will need foot protection. Make sure you have a surge suppressor, 50amper hooked up on our shared pole and blew our breakers. Bus stop a short walk to the road and will bring you to Key West, better off bringing your transportation or get a rental up the chain, not Key West. If it rains there will be large puddles so be pre-paired. The cost is high but it is the Keys. WI-FI is not free. We will not be coming here again.
Staff was not very polite and at times were sarcastic, good thing we didn't have to deal with them all that much. Sites are level and hookups in good locations. Not a good place to bring your pets as there is really no good place to walk them, bring your own bags. The drag strip close by is very loud and runs until sometime around 1am. Location is great to see battlegrounds and Chattanooga as well as Ruby falls and other attractions. Do agree the roads are narrow and there are issues with a rental or car if you have one on most sites. Doubt we would stay there again.
Old part of the park needs major updating. The sites are now mainly grass and mud. A little gravel and they would be greatly improved. Sites were level. Didn't care for the layout of the sites, your door is on the same side as the others next to you, claim your fire pit and table when you arrive. Staff was very friendly the whole time. Great location for us as we were visiting family and toured Indianapolis. There is a large and clean pen to let your dogs run and play. Wouldn't object to staying here again if we couldn't find another place, just would ask to be place in the new section of the park.
Park condition was great and extremely clean. Staff very friendly. Getting situated in the office and to the site for our motorhome was quick. Large walking site for dogs, nicely stocked store. A little road noise but we only stayed for one night along the road. All hookups were clean and had easy access. We would stay here again, only issue is the grounds aren't close enough to either Nashville or Chattanooga.
