this KOA is a clean beautiful campground. Everyone was so nice.
Jul 22, 2013
It was great had a great site and we will be back.

We liked the facility. Great location. The bouncer was a favorite for the kids. The staff very nice. The tent sites were noisy with traffic and very muddy.
Jul 22, 2013
Had a great time. Best KOA we've been to. Lots of fun.

Our family loves staying at the KAO in Cherokee, NC. We love their great customer service and their friendly staff. The KOA is very family oriented, with lots of options for kids and teens. We refuse to camp anywhere else.

Stayed July 19th weekend. Pro's - Great location, lots of trees/shade, next to creek which you can tube on, fun activities Con's - Site flooded so much during one storm, some of our stuff floated away. Outdoor pool was dirty and couldn't see the bottom. Outdoors slide non-existent (they said maybe next year). No Wi-Fi.

The front desk seemed disorganized. There was confusion upon checking in whether or not my site was given to another camper. This delayed the check in process by 15-20 minutes. When checking out, it appeared that someone was being trained by another associate while 2 others were on the phone. I would have expected the training to be interrupted to expedite my check out rather than having to wait.

We had an electrical problem with our site. Mark was very willing to help us. We had an electrical problem with our site. Because of Mark, (who was very helpful)our stay was very enjoyable. We stayed an extra night.

Our Cabin was not clean and the overall Campground was not clean.Way to many Dogs not sure if it was a Campground or Dog Kennel!! I would recommend checking other Campgrounds in the area.

I have stayed here before and liked it. This time unfortunately, security kept coming by shining their light in our campsite waking us up after midnight. The camp site next to ours had smells coming from the holding tank drain. It was overflowing onto the street.

always professional and helpful to make camping fun and easy.

kids where looking forward to the big slide removed for repairs could of said something when making reservations. went to a block party there was not pleased when is was all about religion.
Jul 21, 2013
Great for family. Brought our two grandkids and they loved it.
Jul 21, 2013
Toilets in bathhouse wouldn't flush and mold in men's showers and roof. Wi fi was in and out all week. Wish we new about the pool slide before we got there, my kids really love the slide, very disappointed:(

This is an excellent facility with great amenities and activities. The pool was great. It was nice to be able to fish and tube from the campground. My only concern is the WiFi. It was often out of service, cut out many times, and was weak when working. I chose this place knowing that it offered WiFi and counted on being able to complete some necessary work online. Otherwise a great trip!

Everything is wonderful except Wifi.... If your needing to work not so great.
Jul 20, 2013
Was very upset that outside pool was closed during our stay. Also campsite was Littered with cigarete butts upon our arrival. Otherwise it was a great visit

Our stay was outstanding. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous, they went out of their way to accommodate any concerns/ques we had. The best part was the interaction of the sonshine group. They were all caring to us and more importantly our kids! Especially the activities director, will. He made our vacation extra special. The only disappointment was that the outside hottub was down. Thxs

We paid for 4 days, but left after the first night because we could not communicate with our family back home either by phone or Internet. We use AT&T cellular and wi-fi hot spot. Park is beautiful, but we cannot return until AT&T has coverage for your area.

Very friendly staff and very clean cabin. We enjoyed everything about the place. Excellent experience! Thank you!

Campsite was partially underwater - could not walk from paved area to picnic table platform. Had to buy plastic drop cloths so that would could step out of our camper on to the ground. Requested hay from maintenance at the office on the first morning but it was never delivered during our stay. Very disappointed.

It's a beautiful setting, but with rates twice the norm I expected much better. The wifi was pathetic; it took 10 minutes to load a webpage which made it unusable even for simple email, forget watching a netflix movie. Bathrooms and showers were below average. The $80+/night should have been $25. On the upside, store prices were surprisingly reasonable and employees were very pleasant.

I really liked it because there was great fishing and little tadpoles for my children to play with. The out door pool was open and the inside pool has an very nice hot tub also it was really fun by my new good camper neighbors. That was from one of my little girls. We had a good time and would stay here again. The indoor pool could use a good cleaning.

Great Resort.
Jul 17, 2013
Our visit was fantastic! The campsite was spacious, very friendly and helpful staff. When we visit the Smokies again, we'll definitely stay at the Cherokee KOA. Only suggestion I have is to have brochures on the area.

There are so many things to do that the kids don't get bored. We enjoy the activities that they have for all ages.

Disappointed that we were not told the outdoor pool and slide were closed. The kids were very upset that they could not use these amenities. The bathhouse and campground were very clean.
Jul 17, 2013
bedroom could have used a fan or its own a/c. store prices were ridiculous high.
Jul 17, 2013
My family and myself enjoyed our stay in the cabins. I was not aware that the cabins had no ac unit or outside running water, so this was a disappointment. The bathrooms and laundry room very clean. The staff overall extremely nice, but appear disorganized with assigned job duties.
Jul 17, 2013
We recently visited KOA and it was an overall great experience! We stayed on Site # 177 with our camper and it was such a good site with shade trees! The outdoor pool was nice as to the indoor pool was as well. The first day we arrived we didnt allow our kids in the kiddie pool bc it looked really dirty! However, the next day they had it very clean so we enjoyed it! :) We will defiently be back!!
Jul 17, 2013
Have recommend this p[lace to many people. You have great programs for the kids and the weekend we were up there the skits the kids put on was out standing. Loved the stay and well come back
Jul 16, 2013
This was the WORST KOA we ever stayed...cost when we arrived was much more than when I reserved...filthy bathroom...staff were not knowledgeable...most staff very rude and acted like they did not want to be bothered...would never stay there again...not under this poor management and conditions.
Jul 16, 2013
My family and I have stayed at this KOA several times in the past years, and I can honestly say that I have watched it decline in the maintenance aspect. The staff were friendly, but did not seem too knowledgeable. The first cabin we were given at check in was in bad shape. The back window was boarded up, and the screens on the front windows were torn from the window. The pool was just opened.
Jul 16, 2013
Awesome. Friendly staff and wonderful amenities.
Jul 16, 2013
everyone was very polite and helpful.
Jul 16, 2013
only bad was front bath/laundry house, in womens the showers cnt reg and had to take a cold shower. the one up by rd, tent area. need to befixed redone
Jul 15, 2013
Computers were down at check-in. Wi-Fi was almost non existent unless you were at the office.We talked to another camper who got 20% off their rate because the outside pool was closed, however we were not offered anything. To much wrong for the $75 +tax cost a day.
Jul 15, 2013
stay was great,staff was extremely helpful,lots of activities for the kids to do.Didn't get to do the rafting due to high waters but overall great place,great times.Only suggestion is that the mini golf should be free to campers,they should have to check out the equipment but the game itself should be free,our kids wanted to play but I didn't feel it was worth the cost.We stayed in a truck camper
