  • East Asheville KOA ---- Swannanoa, NC

    we arrived at the East Asheville KOA 6-5-18 and left on 6-7-18 .... in many ways, typical KOA applies .... relatively large number of sites in a relatively small area .... lots of amenities .... family/kid friendly .... sites come at a premium price, ours shown below cost $50 a night after taking off the KOA member discount .... water pressure good ... electrical power strong .... sewer hookups work well .... easy to get to, a couple of miles off of I-40 .... other than price the biggest negative we experienced were they really need to prune limbs hanging over sites and roads

    lots of ducks .... considerable flood damage from heavy rains a couple of weeks ago .... the water level where Maureen is seen standing on the culvert would have been between her hips and knees

              Looks like a nice place. During our 3 month adventure this summer we stayed at three KOA's. Cartersville Ga, KOA Gettysburg and one in northern New York. All three were nice places. They tend to be a little more expensive, but these places had nice sites with FHU's. We did become KOA members last year.

                agree with them tending to be expensive .... most tend to be designed for families with kids .... consequently, many of the things they offer aren't of any use to us .... they tend to be very close to the highway we are using .... I can't drive our rig far in an attempt to find a CG that charges a few dollars less per night
