Campground Reviews

My son and I enjoyed our stay, especially going tubing. The campgound was fun and 'resort'like camping.I had told my son I would rent him a bike and ride with him for the 30minute rental after we packed up our tent site. I did not like that we could not use the bikes or pool after we had checked out of our tent site.

First time at this campground and it was very enjoyable. The only problems we encountered were the water pressure in the showers and the time it took to figure out how to get hot water. However, I was told that the shower/bathhouse #1 is to be rebuilt. The staff were very friendly and courteous, and the camp store one of the very best I have ever been in. All in all I will most likely return.

This was our first stay at a KOA and we loved it. Beautiful site for our motorhome next to the river with rapids, people fishing and the majestic mountains all around us. Breathtaking.

I wanted to take a relaxing vacation for a few days, and get away from it all. Ive stayed in KOA cabins all my life, and I knew KOA would be a place to go. I researched about 8 of them, but the one in Cherokee was the best. A day before arriving, I emailed them asking what time are they open to, as I planned a "late arrival". Well, they said they closed at 6pm. I found this odd. Ive NEVER had a KO

Friendly family campground. Fun for all ages.

Everything was great except for one thing. The sewer connection at our back-in site was uphill from our camper connection,so it did't drain as well as it should. Other than that we enjoyed the stay.

Roads seem to be in disrepair. Not many people abided by the rules and regulations as far as clothes lines, and walking through your site with you sitting right outside your camper. Most of the standard sites need resurfaced and repaired. Office personnel were pleasant but not knowledgeable of events in the area. Prices were a little high for this time of the year.

Hi, I want to start by saying that the staff was top notch. only found one toilet room that locked on the mens side. I even opened the door on some poor woman sitting on the can. I realize that being in a mountainous region you can't do much about the wifi signal but it wasn't available. Don't advertise free wifi that doesn't work! Overall my stay was nice. Just a few glitches.

Bathrooms was not cleaned for a whole day and a half even after we told a gentleman that the two that came to clean would just set in front of the bathrooms taking pictures of each other then would drive around to the other side and do the same. VERY disappointed in the cleanest of the camp ground.

Great facility with wonderful personnel. Only drawback was a stopped up drain in the men's shower building. Thanks Colby for opening the rec room for us.

We have been coming to this KOA for 25 years. It will probably be our last. The woman that checked us in did nothing but argue with us and tell us we didn't know what we were talking about.The $3.50 charge per day for a RESORT is bull crap.Nothing has changed for the better at this KOA in 25 years and it's no resort.We were furious the gate to the pond was boarded up.Get the code box fixed!!!!

We really enjoyed our stay at KOA Cherokee. The Deluxe Cabin was more than we expected. It was very clean and comfortable. We will definitely return!

while returning to find the camp all we remembered,l would like to say that it was a bit dissapointing to find our cabin was not as accomadating as previous rentals. also you should update online because style names of cabins do not match up to your camp overview phamplet. Seems a bit deceiving. you advertise two playgrounds and only have one.No sink in bathrooms? and stovetops do not heat up well

Granddaughter loves your campground. Only wish the price wasn't so high, we could come more often.

Check in was excellent and the staff was very friendly. However not clean. The pool was dirty but I could over look that because yes we are kamping but the Bathrooms are NASTY. Several times through out our stay they would pull up to clean but never get out of the golf cart, then they just drive off. When we left on Monday the bathroom had not been clean since Saturday Night.

We have always loved this KOA. However, management has changed which has caused many staffing and property changes. As a result, many people have not returned. The focus needs to be put back on customer service and not on the bottom line. Secondly, it has been a year full of empty promises regarding the wifi. It is time to get the wifi completed or stop lying about deadlines.

We stayed in one of the single cabins for two nights. Very peaceful place. Staff was very friendly, and the place well kept. Already told 3 people they must go. Definately returning next year after winter goes away.

We were told we couldn't rent tubes for the river. By luck, one of our party asked a different employee and was told that we could. We lost valuable tubing time before we finally were able to tube. Also, I was told I could switch to a different cabin closer to my friends if I came back after 3pm. I came back and they wanted to charge me $50. The earlier employee wasn't going to charge extra.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Facility has improved greatly over the years... we are frequent visitors.

Though the facilities at the campground were nice and the staff was very helpful, we didn't spend a lot of time in the campground itself. The only really detrimental feature is the 5 mile drive from town to the campground on a very winding, hilly road with a 35 mph speed limit.

We have been going to the Cherokee KOA for many years. For the past few years the campground was highly disappointing lack of hot water, several things out of order. This trip was a pleasant surprise. The campground was the way it was when we first started coming, it was great.
Sep 18, 2014
We always enjoy our stay at Cherokee KOA. All of the staff is always friendly an don't helpful. We will continue to add to our son's childhood memories that we can make at your location!

This is my favorite campground. I have been going there for 20 plus years. The bathrooms are clean, showers hot, my cabin is peaceful and the fishing is good. If I didn't love this place my kids would have send most summer holidays here. And they learnt more about their culture here than any white school could have taught them. Thanks!
