Toured area this time and viewed other campgrounds. This KOA is a great location and very lovingly taken care of by the staff. Easy access to Cade's Cove. Take Wears road and end up at light 3 in Pigeon Forge in 25 minutes. Beth made sure we had a great spot with river view and Mike helpful in getting us parked. Our site was a backin #10. 9 10 and 11 are pie shaped with short end the truck space. Plan a return next year. Play area for kids and dogs great. Bathhouse excellent.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in what's known as "the peaceful side of the Smokies," the Townsend/Great Smokies KOA neighbors Cades Cove and the countless black bears, deer, plants and flowers that make their homes there. With the tranquil Little River hugging the property line, endless hiking trails weaving through the wooded tapestry surrounding the kampground and swinging bridges suspended nearby, each day at this KOA promises a new adventure. Nearby attractions like Dollywood, Tuckaleechee Caverns (a 25-million-year old cavern system) and miles of tubing and biking guarantee great fun for your vacation. On-site, visit the Little River Village restaurant for a batch of fudge, grab your tackle and cast your line and enjoy free wireless Internet during your stay. ... more less
