“the peaceful side of the Smokies”

Located on "the peaceful side of the Smokies," the Townsend/Great Smokies KOA is a tranquil place to visit. Surrounded by beautiful forests of the Smoky Mountains and nestled up against the Little River, this KOA provides a great setting for relaxing and enjoying nature. Cades Cove is just around the corner with plenty of biking and hiking opportunities, and the Little River is excellent for swimming, tubing and trout fishing. Visit the on-site restaurant for tasty southern fried chicken or homemade fudge. Full hookups are available on level, grassy sites with paved patios. Tent sites range from semi-sunny to heavily wooded and secluded. Don't want to rough it? Reserve a Camping Cabin or furnished Deluxe Cabin. Enjoy the on-site laundry, swimming pool, modern playground, covered pavilion with large barbecue pit, horseshoe pits, basketball court, Wi-Fi, bicycle rentals and an arcade. Pool: Memorial Weekend - Labor Day Weekend. Max pull thru: 60 feet.
