Summer comes every year, and with it, the call of the wild! Longer days and warmer weather mean plenty of opportunities to spend time outside, surrounded by rugged natural beauty. Roughing it, though, just isn’t for everyone, especially families with children.
Thankfully, Great Smokies KOA has family camping in its DNA, and is ready to accommodate families of all ages, sizes, and preferences with its RV sites, tent camping sites, and even rental cabins. Read on to find out why they’re a family favorite in the Smokies region!
Bringing Your Vacation Home with You? KOA Has RV Sites and Tent Sites!
If you’re someone who puts the R in RV, Great Smokies KOA is ready for you. Back-in and pull-thru sites are available with 50/30 amps, and cable TV, fire pits, and patios are all available options. Going camping the old-fashioned way? No problem! Individual tent sites accommodate up to 6 people, include onsite parking, picnic tables, and fire rings, and fill up fast, especially those facing the Little River. Oh yeah, and pets are allowed at both RV and tent sites, so no need to leave Fido at home!
Is Your Family the Cabin Type? Great!
It might surprise some people, but besides tent and RV sites, this KOA campground includes both deluxe and camping cabins. Deluxe cabins sleep up to 4 or 6, and generally include a partial kitchen with a microwave, mini-fridge, and Keurig, as well as a private bathroom including a shower (and in some, even a bathtub!). Many also include outdoor living space, kid-friendly sleeping lofts, linens, fire pits, gas grills, patio furniture, and even air conditioning! Just check when you book to make sure it has the amenities you’re looking for.
Camping cabins are also available, for those who want that unvarnished back-to-nature experience without the hassle of setting up tents or worries about what to do when it rains. These basic units have all the charm of a classic log cabin, and amenities vary, from just an old-fashioned porch swing, to mini-fridges and air conditioning.
Amenities for Everyone
Regardless of whether you decide on a tent, RV site or cabin, Great Smokies KOA offers facilities and services the whole family can appreciate. These include easy access to an ice cream and fudge shop, a swimming pool, one-of-a-kind log-cabin-themed children’s playground, propane and firewood for purchase, as well as a large covered pavilion with a barbecue pit, horseshoe pits and a basketball court.
That’s not all – this KOA also has WiFi access, an outdoor movie area, tube rentals for tubing on the Little River, an enclosed dog park where your dog can run off-leash, bike rentals, and great fishing. Laundry and two very clean bathhouses are available when you need to take care of the details, and Great Smokies KOA also offers special discounts and deals throughout the season, so just give them a call or take a look online to see what is available when you’d like to book.
