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.

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!

Not very happy with this KOA. It seems old, dated and not very clean. Also, rained the weekend we were there and there was a lot of standing water- no where to drain. Many of the sites were also overgrown with tree roots and either unusable, or dangerous to the users.

This campground needs to really work on caring about their campers when rain causes flooding, no one bothered to come and help or offer to put down anything to help with the mud holes. My husband said the mens room was never clean always flooded. If I come back I will be sure to stay away from the front part of the park DON'T TAKE SITE #29 that is where all the water flows to.

Love staying here as always. Always something to do yet peaceful.

We have stayed at several different KOA's through-out the south and this one is our favorite. Our children did not want to leave. The staff was extremely nice. I saw a staff member helping a kid fix it's bike. The restaurant on site was nice and clean the staff there were great and the food was wonderful. We are looking forward to our next trip to this KOA.

Our site 15 was completely flooded Fri due to a clogged drain plug, was told it was an act of nature! No KOA people offered any help except to unclog the drain plug. Why was I assigned site 15 if it floods during hard rains? Am sending pictures to KOA.

it was nice. kinda packed but to be expected. area clean and facilities nice. Staff was excellent. the BBQ we purchased was great. too bad some campers have to puke in the tree not 30 ft from your site for about 10 mins. Kinda made my stay a bit icky in a way :)

We always enjoy staying at the Cherokee KOA. This stay was just as enjoyable. I would like to suggest more enforcement of the speed limit. And, on Saturday, while putting my child down for a nap, a motorcycle with loud exhaust came through reving his engine. Instituting an "idle only" policy for motorcycles is another suggestion.

arrived in heavy rain storm. directed to our site, next to the dumpster and under water. came back to office soaking wet, given another site. went there getting soaked partially flooded site and water hook up not working and handle broken,again in heavy rain back to office and given another site which worked out well. staff needs to be aware of product it is selling and know which areas are probs

Need WiFi networks.

This was our best stay yet. We have been visiting with KOA Cherokee for the past four years. We had stayed previous to this at another cheaper campground and wasn't satisfied. We plan to possibly buy a camper and rent a site year round.

This was our 2nd stay at KOA Cherokee. The staff is very helpful and professional. We are in the process of thinking when we may return.

The campground is great! Though you must realize with todays demands your customers work while they play. You very badly need to distribute wireless internet throughout the campground, with todays technology the cost is minimum. Unfortunately we will have to stay at another campground on the weekends when work and play coexist. Thank you

Certainly has improved a lot over the last year. I understand that there is new management and it shows. Still more to do but on the right track

Have you thought about getting a bid from a paving company, to redo the drives to build a crown in them? So rains will drain off the roads?

Out of all the campground. This was best campground we went to. Everything was close. We really didn't need to leave the campground. My family had fun and we will return if we ever decide to come to the mountain.

Rented the same type cabin, that I had previously rented, 2 years ago, this time had no linen. Rude staff argued about this, and no notification of this change when registering was given. Also, had workers patrolling grounds constantly and approach our visitors and confronted them very nasty about paying for visiting us. Very RUDE staff! Will not return.

Employees enjoying the excitement of driving electric golf carts at 25 mph rather than responding to customers' requests.

We had a blast here!!! The indoor and outdoor pools w/ accompanying hot tubs were a lot of fun and so relaxing! Having the option to eat on site was great (and the food delicious and reasonably priced). Renting tubes for the creek and the shuttle made for another super fun time as well. We stayed in a cabin that was clean and nice as were the bathrooms. We can't wait to return!!!!

It is one of the best( maybe the best)campgrounds that we have ever stayed especially with our 4 yr old grandson along. soo very much to keep him entertained.

The bathhouse number 1 had a lot of problems. No hot water, back up of drains. Garbage piled up outside of restroom.

Second year we have stayed here and are already planning our trip for next year. Love the activities for kids and the clean amenities.
Sep 13, 2014

We had a very good time. The staff was friendly, the store was well stocked, the bath house was clean and the cabin we stayed in was clean.

Too many cabins. It didn't seem as much like a campground. Everything else was fine except the sewer was in the back of the trailer. Had to go buy more sewer hose. Many trailers have the sewer in the middle.

Stayed at this campground many times. This time I was very disappointed. Was told there was Wi-Fi and after the first day there, I went to the office and was told the Wi-Fi was just taken down and a new service was being put in and it should be done in a week. I said good because I was going to be at the campground for 26 days. Then they changed their tune. Phone service was non existing.

It is our 2nd stay at the Cherokee KOA. It is still a pretty location with clean restrooms and better than average maintenance. But, it the 7 years since our last visit we've come to depend on reliable Broadband Internet and you don't provide it. To make matters worse the cellular signal in your KOA is too weak to provide an alternative Internet access path.
Sep 11, 2014
great

We have spent 35 nights over the last 2 months in KOA's in the Midwest. This was by far the best campground. If I was to say anything negative it would be on the strength of the WiFi. It was especially hard since we had very little cell phone use in the park.

Sites are to close together, too many golf carts on road. For the price you pay I expected larger sites. I will research a different campground for future visits to Cherokee.l
