“Most Parking spaces not suited for big rigs”
Reviewed 19 July 2009

Park has many trees with low hanging limbs, short pull thrus, roads that are rough, uneven and on steep grades. The park appears old and in need of improvements. It may be fine for tents, kabin campers, & smaller RVs but it is not suited for big rigs. We checked in and were given the number of our parking space. Nobody showed us to the space and helped us park our 35ft fifth wheel. Consequently, as we were trying to avoid hitting anything on either side of the RV, we ended up backing into a low hanging limb, causing damage to our roof. After talking with several of our fellow campers who had had similar problems getting parked, we all agreed that this would be our last trip to Boone KOA.

This is a great campground for families. We took our 3 small grandchildren. There is a playground and pool. We went Memorial day weekend and the campground was full. Everything was kept very clean. I never went in the bathhouse and found it dirty. I would recommend this campground.

Spent a few days in a kamiping kabin and as usual we had a great time. The staff is awesome there. It is safe and clean. Enjoyed it very much. We stay every year when we go to tweetsie. Will continue to do so.

This campground is definitely one of the cleanest my wife and I have stayed in. We occupied one of the cabins. Our smoke detector had a weak battery when we arrived. I reported it and the battery was replaced almost before I got back to the cabin. The management/employees were friendly and never lost their smiles. The entertainment was a blue grass band that had a wonderful show with loads of laughs. The location is in the country but only 10 minutes from downtown Boone. I plan on going back next year during the PAY FOR ONE/GET ONE NIGHT FREE to benefit CANCER RESEARCH.

We loved our stay at this KOA! We are generally tent campers and avoid KOAs like the plague because they are so organized and filled to the brim with RVs. Had a conference in Boone for a week though, and needed some of the necessities like showers for this stay! This is so convenient to Boone - just a 5 minute drive up the mountain, and you're away from the hustle and bustle but near enough if you need to make a grocery run.

We booked the basic Kabin for 5 days - 1 room cute cabin with electricity, double bed and a set of bunkbeds. Not much tabletop space, and the mattress isn't a pillowtop, but overall very comfy cabin and incredibly clean. A set of bathrooms was very nearby, although the door kept accidently locking, and locked everyone out at least one nite - but the main bathrooms are just a 2 minute walk up the hill! The showers were clean and adequate. 3 cabins have front porch swings, so request one of those! Out of the 7 cabins on that row, we were the only ones there that week, so that made it much quieter than it would've been.

Putt putt course was $1 and fun! Pool was refreshing on our last day. Tent campsites were nice - especially the ones that come with a sheltered picnic table! There are the standard rows and rows of RVs, but very quiet for a KOA. Big game room. Goats on site were fun to interact with and feed. They sell goat food in the office. Playground equipment good for the kids. Staff incredbly helpful. We forgot our fishing rods at the cabin, and they tracked us down to make sure we got them before we left town. I would stay here again, even if tent camping, and even though we generally are not KOA campers!

AUG-5-7 We visited Boone KOA Campground For First Time.The Property Was downhill and we were at the bottom.So at night there were no lights of any kind to see how to get to bathrooms or showerhouse,So if you were elderly,or didn't have a flashlight you were in trouble.They need lights in the worst kind of way.People around us were also complaining.Some were paid up but left early,and we all said we would not be back.

This is a really nice campground. The staff are very accommodating, the facilities (bathroom/showers) are clean, well-furnished, and have plenty of hot water, and the "kabins" are nice. My only gripe might be that some of the tent sites aren't completely level, but that's about it, and nothing too terrible. I'm in a group that meets here every year, and we will continue to do so, in part, due to the KOA staff and their facility.
