The Bristol / Kingsport KOA at 425 Rocky Branch Road in Blountville, TN is an award winning campground. As soon as The RV Gypsies stopped at the KOA office to register and Karen stepped out of her RV, the first thing she noticed was a nice play area for children: a sandbox full of toys, swings and a slide, a swinging bench for the parents, horseshoes and a bean bag setup, plus a jumping pillow and more.
As Karen approached the office, she bypassed the ladies and mens restrooms and each of them had a delightful cowgirl / cowboy painting on the outside. Going up the stairs to the office, Karen saw the large swimming pool with a small slide, a soda machine, and of course, some tables and chairs. (see photos below)
The pool closed at 8 p.m., which is Karen's only complaint, even though it is a common time for pools in campgrounds to close. There was a Rocky Branch Cafe at this KOA, with free delivery. The Two RV Gypsies did order some food from there and it arrived quickly, and was pretty good.
RV and car washing tickets were on sale at the office. There is a lot more that could be said about this particular KOA because it was nicer than most of the other KOA's the Two RV Gypsies have visited.
