At first I was a little panicked that it was going to be a campground that jammed in too many people and we’d have no privacy. It was surprisingly quiet and we had plenty of space. We stayed in the tent spots along the river. It was quiet, we didn’t feel like anyone was on top of us, and the restrooms and general areas felt available.
The water levels are perfect for floating around and playing in the river. There’s even a little path you can take a tube up and float back down. They had a lily pad for general use and a little pond if you wanted something contained.
It’s a great little spot with good people running it. We’ll definitely be back!
Kingdom Come State Park is a little jewel in southeastern Kentucky! There are 6 tent sites (7 if they allow you to reserve the one next to the duck pond), each with a gravel drive, mulch tent pad big enough for two smallish tents, fire ring, and picnic table. The nearby shelter house provides restrooms and trash cans. The local ranger was most helpful in providing firewood (free!) and offering to bring us water to wash up with or for drinking (there is a water fountain across from the CG, but it wasn't turned on and there is running water in the restrooms). The area is known for bear activity, but we saw none. The surrounding mountains provide many short hikes that can be easily strung together to make for a longer trek if desired. We look forward to camping there again!
Mostly level gravel spots. Sites are close together. Block bathhouse that the spiders enjoy. Beautiful river. Lots of open space pets. This is very country setting. Friendly host.
Newport KOA is conveniently located near I-40 North East of Knoxville, TN.
This campground hosts standard RV Sites and Cabin Sites. They have bathrooms, a pool, WiFi, a dog park, firewood for sale, propane, and more. They have lots of travelers coming through from races and for motorcycle clubs, and RV rallies.
We found this location because we had difficulty finding camping locations in the area and we were pleasantly surprised to see this pretty park!
We had decent AT&T cellular service but TMobile was not as good. We were able to stream and work efficiently.
There are caverns nearby to go explore and of course it’s in the Smokies!
Great sites in loop 5. Up the hill. we had 3 tents and a camper. Shaded, good fire pits, picnic table. Fire pits you had to walk up to but were away from tents, which I liked. Bathhouse was clean, well lit, pretty warm showers. Campground was very clean and has a lot of amenities. We were there for base camp hiking the Appalachian Trail. Sites 56,57,58 were large flat sites with lots of room if you have a large camper. Was very full the week we were there. Recommend!
Kingsport/Bristol has easy access from Interstate 81 and the campground is easily navigated with a large 5th wheel.
They have cabins, a nice pool, a blob, lots of outdoor activities, playground area, horse shoes, even with it being a smaller KOA Campground there is a lot to do. The park is also near Warriors Path State Park, which is fun to go hike and see.
They have several large pull through sites, as well as back in smaller sites. They have 50amp service and full hookup sites.
Cellular reception is decent for TMobile and AT&T.
This park is frequented by travelers and NASCAR fans.
We stayed here in mid-September of 2020. This was our first stay with our new pop-up camper, and the place was such a pleasant surprise. The campground is surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountains and Watauga River. The site was level and water and electric hookup were seamless. I would highly recommend this place, but do not spread the word.
