Townsend did not get hit by the wild fires so it should be in good shape.

I don't have a camper but I am hoping to get one by spring of 2018.
Do you know if there would be any opportunity to "peek" in a few campers to get an idea of what we might like?
I will be in Townsend for a natural fibers show at the visitors center with my wife so it would be nice to come by and check things out.


Larry we will be there in our 19, I think in site 6. We arrive Wednesday the 19th and leave out on Sunday, you are more than welcome to take a tour

Thanks Greg!
Hope to come by and check it out!

Just finished a month at the KOA. Some burn on the hills before the pass going into Townsend from Knoxville. Nothing in Townsend and I didn't see much on the way to Pigeon Forge.

For anyone interested, I've posted a page of photographs from the 10th Annual Southeastern Spring Eggscursion at Townsend, TN.

Hello All
Hello All,
Sorry I didn't get to meet anybody this weekend at the rally. I came by on Saturday around four and drove around and looked at all the different eggs. Pretty cool stuff. I wasn't brave enough to stop and talk to anybody. It look like several people were packing up and heading home before the weather got any worse. Probably wise, it rained all day today here in the Smokey's.
There were lots of Casita's! And escapes. Not as many scamps. I am hoping for a Scamp 16' someday.
Hope everybody enjoyed their time in Townsend!

Glad you got to see some eggs. Sorry, we missed you. Laura loves to show off our Casita. Wishing you the best in finding your Scamp 16'.

Take care,

Wish you would've stopped. We all love to show off our little homes on wheels. In this group, you will never meet a stranger. I was down by the creek in the 13' Burro painted to look like an Airstream and am always willing to show anyone the inside because the insides are bigger than they appear from the outside.
Hope to see you at another rally, Troy

Oh yes!! We used to live in New Mexico and took that old narrow gauge a couple of times! And we are headed over Red Mountain Pass to scare our kids, this summer! There are so many beautiful places to visit in this country! We are planning an extended trip out to the the SE coast summer 2018, and will be driving through Arkansas, Georgia, Florida,Tennessee and making some stops there. Just haven't finalized our routes yet, but always keeping my eyes open for incredible spots others post about!

We arrived post rally on Monday to pick up our Escape, and stayed the night to test it out (actually stopped in very briefly to pick up some paperwork, but had to make a hasty trip home to the DMV office before they closed).

Already made a reservation for next year. Definitely the nicest KOA I have ever stayed at. Quiet, clean, on the river, away from the Pigeon Forge craziness. Lots of sites already taken. Very attractive rate for the rally too! About a mile from the entrance to Smoky Mountains National Park.

My wife gave the Escape an "A".

What are the dates for next year?


thrifty bill 04-26-2017 09:29 AM

April 18-21st I think. Campground has a sheet on it already.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 07:16 AM.
