We loved how the cottage was so clean and everyone there was so nice. Can't wait to plan our next trip to this KOA

The Halloween weekend is our favorite camping trip of the whole year, we have camped here for Halloween for the last 15 years and love it each time, they make Halloween great for us. The facilities are clean and well kept.

Had a great time. The staff provided deep fried turkeys and stuffing for a potluck dinner on Thanksgiving Day that was fabulous! We had a super time at the pool and hot tub while it was freezing outside.

I enjoyed my stay at KOA Cherokee. However, I wish someone would have put a sign on the bath house door stating the showers were not operational and there was no hot water. This was the bath house near the gate.

Everything was great except the indoor pool and hot tub were not clean. The hot tub needs to be hotter also.

Hot water heater in cabin didn't work for two days. Management without hesitation refunded me in full for two days w/o water. I was very happy.

Very friendly helpful people campground had a very nice location. the plumbing in the bathrooms needs work very hard to operate bath house need to be replaced, I have noticed this at all of the KOA I have stayed at. You can only put so much makeup on a pig these cheesey remodel jobs I see in more and more KOA's. Night lights on bathrooms were out for 2 nights.KOA'S from montana to Louisiana have.

Parts of this park are very nice - the scenery; the proximity to GSMNP; the hard-working staff; the large laundry facility in Bathhouse 4. Parts of this park need work - internet was spotty at best; on-demand hot water system in BH 4 (which nobody told us about until we complained 3 times) resulted in terrible shower experiences in November. We can tell this is work in progress, so thank you.

Love the KOA Campgrounds, but just way too expensive! I was a "member" but not re-newing and will consider many other reasonably price campgrounds in the future! Sorry!

The cabin was awesome. I was very impressed with the way the cabin looked and everything worked great. It was my wife's first time in a campground and I wanted her to enjoy it. It was perfect for her. She loved it and we will be back. Thanks!!

The staff is helpful but lukewarm. The bathrooms and cabins are very clean though.

Excellent

We stayed at this campground in early November in an RV. It was very clean. The staff in the office and grounds crew were courteous and made our stay very pleasant. One even helped us troubleshoot our rig's coax issue. If you don't want to be near the kiddie magnet jumping mat, make sure you specify that. It didn't bother us but the sound resembled thunder which frightened our dog. Overall great!

We have been staying at the Cherokee KOA for 15 years and it is always a great trip . We love the Cherokee KOA !!!

We had a great time but did experience an issue with the water in the shower. It was very cold. Stood in there for 10+ minutes waiting for it to warm up (last time we stayed this worked) and it stayed cold. It was miserable to come in from a long day of trout fishing in the cold waters to have to take a cold shower.

Bathroom seemed dirty. Light were on a sensor and will turn off while showering. Arcade was closed after 7:00pm my kid couldn't enjoy. Staff smoke cigarettes in bathrooms and they stink...

We can only get away from our business for a couple of days at a time. We really enjoyed just building a fire in the pit and watching the river go by. So relaxing. Staff was very helpful.

This was just what our family needed. A small break from the stress, to just be a family. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Don't advertise a deluxe cabin and then it a trailer with little room and appliances.

We stayed in a cabin near the river. It has 2 bedrooms, with bathroom and half kitchen. It's not big but very cozy. KOA site is not far from the trails.

The only negative about the campground location is that there is NO AT&T cell phone signal at this location. We were not able to make phone calls or text with our cell phones.

We arrived after hours and had to get our packet ( we rented a cabin) from the outside box. We waited for about 30 minutes before we found someone who worked there. He said he would be at our cabin with the key in a few minutes. We went to our cabin and went and unpacked everything to the front porch. The guy never came with the key. I had to leave and go find him.

Nice in November. Pool, hot tub, everything still open. Not sure how summer would be. Probably extremely crowded.
