10 Reviews of Asheville West KOA
Smaller large KOA

Considering the actual square footage of this KOA, there was a lot of unused space. Which for a KOA was strange. There were two open fields so maybe they plan to expand. There was a trail that meandered through the park which was nice, though steep and slippery in a few places, be careful.

This is a very “strategically” located KOA. SO much to do in this area. Bring your mountain bike, hiking boots and drinking cup. Bakeries, Orchards, breweries, mountains, waterfalls and bike trails just to name a few things ;)

The campground is near I-40 but I didn’t even notice it when I was in my van, sorta white noise. I was in the back loop so maybe the front area gets more noise from the interstate.

There is a dog park and maybe I’m dog fickle but it’s a smaller park in a huge grass field….why not make the dog park bigger??

The sites in a straight line are close, the ones in the curve have more room. There’s a shower house in the back loop which is new and well maintained. Strange too was the dump site in the back loop, I didn’t see one in the front area.

Fantastic campground with a bit of highway noise

The only reason for the four star rating is due to the highway noise from I-40, which is located adjacent to the campground. Otherwise, the campground is very well-kept with friendly staff and our site (deluxe pull-through with patio) was large and mostly level. Very convenient to Asheville, Waynesville and Brevard. Go see the waterfalls near Brevard, you will not be disappointed!

At first I was worried, but it turned out great

This is the smallest KOA we’ve been to by far, in our travels. When we got there the site was crazy unleveled, but after using all my leveling blocks, we made it work. The o let other 2 negative things was it’s the road noice and the smell of the paper mill in the morning. Other than that, is place was really pretty cool. We camped down on the lower level and had water and power, no sewer, which isn’t a huge deal, but still. Our site backed up to a little wooded area and we get like we were actually in a state park, not an rv park. The playground was a little too small for my kids, but they’ve got a bunch of little trails throughout the site with fairy doors at the base of some trees and a Groot!!! David, the grounds guy there, was great and had a ton of suggestions for where we could go to explore. You’re about 15 minutes from Asheville at this place, and there’s tons of things to do in town….breweries, nature centers, and the biltmore to name a few!

Far enough away to feel like camping and still close to the city

The Asheville KOA is very pet and RV friendly. There are a number of walking trails of easy to moderate difficulty that run throughout the property. The dog park is a great place to let the pups off of the leashes for a bit. Staff pickup trash daily between 10-11AM at your site, but dumpsters are easily accessible.

We camped here in our 22' travel trailer. The back in sites are mostly level with a mix of dirt and gravel. If you're looking for a sunny spot, request one of the even-numbered back-ins. If you would prefer to be mostly in the shade, go for an odd-numbered spot. 20/30/50 amp electric, cable, water and sewer were easily accessible at each site. Camp sites are not very large, so be mindful of volume and lights with respect to your neighbors.

Great overnight.. headed to the beach.

We enjoyed this ½ way to the beach stop for the night. Had pull through site. Only drawback was the smell in the morning from the paper mill..

Beautil location

Close. To. Everything. You. Need

Just ok

Out camp site was rather rocky and water pump did not work. They apologize in advance for the highway but besides road traffic it sounded like tractor trailers were powering up and down below the hill from our site. Bathrooms were very clean and staff was nice. However very little in terms of activities for teens and older kids and the camp store doesn't open till 9 which was a long coffee wait for my husband.

Nice stay.

Other than rain almost every day, we enjoyed this spot while checking out Asheville and Biltmore Estate. The campground is very wooded, allowing for shady space. The showers were decently clean. Garbage is picked up at your site, or you can recycle next to the shower house which is not located far for the back section, which we were in, with full hookups. We enjoyed the trail through the woods that circles the whole campground. Our dog enjoyed the dog park. There is a pool and camp store.

Great refuge

Came here to escape the pending doom of a hurricane last year. Really nice! We stayed right off a tiny lake in the campground, up in the mountains with a beautiful view. My husband got to fly fish so it was an unexpected surprise. Seem to have a lot of kids activities. All the staff was great and friendly.

First to Review
Good location with some nice features.

We spent three nights here while in town for GeoWoodstock. It was an ideal location since it was between downtown Asheville and Waynesville which is where we split our time. The staff was friendly. The drinks for sale at the office were super cold and the prices reasonable. They had the basics like drinks, stuff for s'mores, ice, firewood, etc. The pool seemes nice, but we didn't use it. There is a game room that houses some board games and puzzles, but no arcade games. It is open 24/7 so you can stay until you finish a puzzle. There is an outdoor room with a ladders game and a big Connect Four game. They also have a small playground kind of away from the campsites. There are hiking trails which we did not step foot on due to lack of time/laziness/other activities. The free wi-fi was spotty, but correcting that is on their list of upcoming projects. The bathrooms were clean and pretty decent. There are bathroom doors marked for men and for women, but they are in the same building with no other separation. This did not seem to be an issue. The shower doors had good locks on them. There is a "security guard" that rides around with his dog keeping an eye on things, and selling firewood, which was actually quite convenient. There is an outdoor sink on a cement platform with a roof that is convenient for rinsing dishes and such. It is a double sink with hot and cold water on the outside of the bathhouse. A feature I was pleased with was the recycling bins. They would also pick up your trash if you left it out in a tied up garbage bag which I thought was nice. Our site was near a trash bin so we did not partake of that service. Overall it is a decent place and should be even nicer as they work on marking things off their project list.
