“Good place for a break from boondocking.”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2018

Overall Rating

Stopped in for a night to use the laundry, and was surprised by the very decent wi-fi signal. Friendly staff, and full hookups make for a pleasant evening of chores.

Listen to their instructions if you are coming from the east, the GPS will take you on a back route that is fun if you don't have a larger rig.

Only major negative is the noise from I-40 is pretty loud at night. Use the good wifi to stream some YouTube and just drown it out.

“Fairly quiet and basic - 20 minutes outside of Asheville”

Reviewed Apr 08, 2016

Overall Rating

This KOA has two separate camping areas: one for full hook-ups (and close to the campground amenities) and the other down the road a bit for water and electric. We were in the B section that included tent camping and those camping rigs that required only water and electric. The small bath house was clean, with three lockable shower units and a separate male and female toilet facility. The showers had good water pressure and enough room to change and dress without getting wet. There is also an outside sink with hot and cold water for washing of dishes.

The surface of the camping area in this section is gravel, dirt and sand and while fairly level, becomes muddy when it rains (which it did several times when we were here). There were several RVs that looked like they had been there for quite a long time; some had people and dogs and others looked as if they were being stored there. When we were here, there were only a few other campers and plenty of room. You can hear/see the cars on Highway 40, but with the doors/windows closed, the sound becomes more muffled.

This isn't a very picturesque place, but is about 20 minutes from Asheville. Highway 40 is easily accessed and is a quick drive into town. We were here to see/explore Asheville and were out fairly early and back fairly late, so this place worked for us.

The big negative for us? The advertised free wifi. It was set up through a Facebook hot spot and if we used it would have to agree to have FB track us. We used our own data plan instead.

NOTE: The $30.88 was for water/electric and included our KOA discount.
