There’s a reason Townsend is called the peaceful side of the Smokies. Life is just a little slower here. When you check into your accommodations at the Townsend/Great Smokies KOA, you’ll feel it in the air. Your only responsibility is to decide on how you’re going to relax first.
You could grab an ice cream cone or some seasonally flavored fudge from the Sweet Shoppe and relax with a book on your cabin’s deck. Make sure to try the pumpkin flavored fudge if you’re visiting in the fall. You could rent a bike from the general store and take a ride down the historic bike trail located just across the street, or on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the stunning Cades Cove Scenic Drive. This road is closed to motorized traffic on these morning May through September to allow bikers and joggers some peace and quiet. Or, you could venture into the Little River and get wet. If you’re anxious to see what’s biting, you can pick up a fishing license at the general store and cast a line, or go for a dip in the pool during the summer months.
This KOA has accommodations for every type of traveler. If you’re a camper, bring your own tent or RV and call Townsend home for a few days. If you’re interested in a roof over your head, rent one of their rustic camping cabins. You’ll have beds and a beautiful patio and will have access to the campground’s bath house. If you’re looking for a glamping experience, rent a brand new Double-Decker Cabin. You’ll have a kitchen, a bathroom and all the comforts of home during your vacation in addition to two beautiful decks.
