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.
Sep 20, 2014
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.

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!

Great stay. Clean campground, friendly helpful staff. Lots of things to do for the whole family without leaving the park.

Our first kabin smelled like cat pee, so we switched to another 1, which had hillbilly neighbors who stayed up till 4am and were very loud. Since KOA added Kottages, the public bathrooms & showers are an afterthought and run down. Used to be a really nice place.

Best KOA I have stayed at. I have stayed in KOAs from NY to Fl. All of the staff were absolutely wonderful.They were very friendly, made you feel at home. This is the first KOA I have stayed at that has an indoor pool and a food court. They have good food, at affordable prices. I went for a sister's weekend.I will be back with the family!

This KOA is just fine. There are lots of things to do. The staff was friendly and helpful. I like the grill and the indoor/outdoor pool options. The only thing I would change - which is not feasible in your situation - is to have more space between kabins/RVs. More privacy. Given that you are a BIG KOA you are doing well.

The bath houses were not maintained. They completely ran out of paper in two stalls and one of the showers was broken. The campground did not drain well after the rain.
Sep 16, 2014
Employee who lived there had his truck parked in our site. Bathroom not handicapped friendly. Toilets would not flush. Showers would not drain. Three out of four washing machines not working. Tree roots coming up through the paved sites and all around them. Water standing in some sites and never seemed to leave the low places in the roads making walking in them a wading experience. WiFi poor.

Surprised with no a/c or heater in camping cabins. Other koas we have stayed at had both. No swing on front porch either.
Sep 16, 2014
overall good stay ,got there real late on first night and left early next morning to go ride the train in Bryson city ,when i got back went to drop off the others who came with me at the cabin ,and the guy who was working at the koa came up and ask for car pass and i told him i needed to go back to office to get it but i was going to dropped off the other people first ,he got a little smart mouth

If it rains, look out! There are serious drainage problems with the campsites, driveways, and streets. And some of the picnic shelters and bath houses are in need some extra maintenance. But, we did enjoy our stay and will likely camp here again.
Sep 16, 2014
Bathrooms very poor neads much attention. A lot of wet ground rain rain go away the Aliens are here to stay !!!!!!
Sep 16, 2014
The bathrooms are too few, old, dirty, the showers are dingy, and floors dangerous -- one of the bathrooms has wooden boards supporting the roof in a walkway
Sep 16, 2014
our stay was wonderful we will for sure be back.thank you
Sep 15, 2014
It was a wonderful stay. Staff very helpful and friendly
Sep 15, 2014
Looking forward to coming back!
Sep 15, 2014
The sites were muddy and ants were a problem. Bathrooms were just OK. Toilets didn't flush well. Pool was nice and staff were very pleasant. Motorcycle noise was a problem, as was a dog in a nearby cabin that yipped and whined continuously.
Sep 15, 2014
A muddy mess in rainy conditions. Water collects everywhere. So much noise and smoke I had to close up my camper and use earplugs. Bathrooms need upgrading; little to no cell/internet service. Staff friendly & helpful.
Sep 15, 2014
Stay was ok, but your bath houses need a lot of upgrading, they are in need of replacement.You have a lot of standing water problem.
Sep 15, 2014
LOVE this campground. My family has been coming here for 8 years and it gets better and better. My kids are all teenagers now but the still love the place and we end up bringing friends. Staff is top notch!

I was annoyed when my husband had to until 2pm we have never had to wait before.We are both disabled.when we went to look what kottage we had there was a other couple at there site unloading.I thought this was very unfair.
