Spacious level lots by stocked trout stream. Ned to label all showers in ladies comfort station at back of park as plumbing is backwards from standard plumbing. Also need to fix locks on toilets and shower doors back comfort station. Finally, need to provide updated TV stations as that printed in brochure is totally wrong. Thank you.

Great Service Great Rates Great Staff This is a true KOA Campground
Oct 20, 2014
Staff was courteous and check in was easy. Campground was full. Grounds clean, seemed well kept. Showers need work. Need a bench or something to put things on in shower. Water pressure/shower head wasn't good in shower.

Beautiful facility with lots to do. Some of the office staff was belittling, negative, short and unwelcoming to the guest. Us included.

We had an awesome stay! Meet a lot of wonderful familys! Staff was extremely nice and always helpful! We loved all the kid activities they had for Halloween! We wil definitely be back!

Campground is breathtaking, amenities are plentiful, staff was hit or miss. Some quite wonderful, some rude. Regardless, would definitely go back.

We had a great time-our stay was just too short. There were many Halloween events for the children-so much to offer. We didn't leave the campground.

We had a wonderul time and must say how clean the campground was and how it was maintained. Your staff was very friendly and nice. It was great to be able to get into our campsite after hours along with the help of your guard. Will be back for sure and stay longer !

It has gotten very expensice to stay in the kamping kottages and it appears that everytime we stay there tey have issues with the wi-fi. I have been coming there for years but I don't think I will return again.

The new campground WIFI hotspot is a great new addition. However, there's some deferred maintenance. The roads are in much need of repair, three of four clothes washer were inoperative, and the hot tub jets in the indoor hot tub were inoperative.

The staff was friendly, the campground was clean, the river was nice to see. The cabin was clean but had a bad smell, many of the facility bathrooms either didn't lock or the lights didn't work, and the shower did not drain so I had to get dressed in a flooded room. The wood we bought for our fire was wet, so we could not start a fire the first night.

It was wonderful. Very thankful for the indoor pool because it rained for days. It was a very fun weekend despite the rain.

I enjoyed staying at this KOA, but it needs to do some upkeep work to the deluxe cabin we stayed it. The floors need a really good cleaning. There is dirt and gum in the corners, and the flooring has really discolored badly. The curtain at the door fell down and needs to be remounted correctly. Also, It is time for a new couch. The one in the cabin is worn, old and ripped in places.

We had a lovely site (pull through). The people running this KOA are helpful and very friendly. My only disappointment is the lack of Wifi availability most days that we were there. I drove to the clubhouse/office several times to manage some business but it was not ideal. I sure wish the the Cherokee Nation would put up another cell tower for AT&T subscribers...no cell service at all!

Wonderful campground - just a bit pricey for off-season! Especially liked your Doggie Island!

Our cabin was perfect of a little getaway for newlyweds, but by the second night we had loud drunk adults next to us. Our last night there they were so drunk and loud we heard them talking about hitting each other and it not going to hurt. Our sweet little getaway was kinda ruined.

Just one problem! A storm came the day we were suppose to leave. A tree fell on our camper at site 130 so why did we have to pay $70.00 for one night because of the weather? I would think there should be a discount when we couldn't leave after staying a whole month!

We had a wonderful stay. Wish all KOA's were as nice as Cherokee KOA.

Lots for children to do. They expanded tremendously since last stay years ago. They are overcrowded now with so many cabins. Camping cabin we stayed in was VERY musty/mildewy. Half of cabins were vacant but not clean. Could not give us another. Did have cleaning come and mop with febreeze. Attempt at shower one time-no hot water. No help from staff when asked. Pool/hot tub perfect temp.

We usually take our camper, but this time we decided to stay in their cabins - they were very nice and clean. As always the entire campground was well kept and the staff friendly.

This KOA has so many things for everyone to do! You don't even have to leave to eat - they have their own little eatery and store :-)

We had a wonderful time! The fishing tournament was fun and so glad you contained it to just the ponds. A women's category should be added and the raffle tickets and drawing for items from your store and donations from the community were missed! Jill, her husband, and Carolyn were very nice and helpful! We were told the entire campground was booked-not true. We'll be back soon & have a great day!

Nice KOA. Despite the rain it was still fun and we will return when in that area again. Only drawback was no cell service [AT&T] and their WIFI was terrible. Forgot my coax for the TV too. But it was kinda nice detoxing from the electronics for 4 days.

This was mine and my husband's second visit to Cherokee KOA. This time we brought some family and friends with us. We camped on one of the super sites. We all had a great time! Already planning another visit.
Oct 14, 2014
The only reason I booked with the Kampground is that my husband wanted to stay in a cabin. It was clean, but the frig leaked and there were some ants. I thought the price was too high, but I knew this coming in.

My husband JW and myself really enjoyed very much and that cabin where we stayed were so cozy and neat and comfortable and that site of KOA is so perfectly place to go and stay beside good for the kids and I personally will want to bring our grandchildren with us one day soon...Thank you so much for allowing us stayed there and enjoyed our time during the fall and colorful season:)!

Beautiful place. Want to go back. However, showers could be rechecked and fixed. Cabin had an odor. But overall great stay.
