The campground was well maintained. Workers were friendly and helpful. We loved the pool, bounce pad, and everything the campground offers for kids. Thanks for a great stay!

I only had two short days to spend at the KOA in Cherokee,NC with my son before he left to enter the Army. So it was a very special trip for us. Not only was the camp beautiful and well kept with many fun activities to enjoy but the staff there absolutely went out of their way to make our stay fantastic! These folks went outta their way to make our stay very special. U cant put a price on that!

We were amazed at all the amenities offered and how comfortable the "fit" was for every age group. Tubing is not to be missed! We think you should have a policy of leaving a note on the door letting guests know that maintenance service requested has been provided while guests are out. Our faulty smoke detector was not fixed and we were told it was because we were not at home! Dangerous policy.

We came for a last hurrah for the kids before school started and chose KOA @ Cherokee based on a friend's suggestion. The amenities were just what we were looking for to keep our two boys busy and happy while allowing my wife and I a chance to slow down and relax. We would definitely consider returning.

We were having a great time until one night Mike Stevens arrived (9:45)at our campsite with a rude attitude. Rather than kindly remind us that the campground curfew was 10pm, he said:"Radio Off!" We said that it wasn't 10 & his response was "If the radio's not off, you can pack up & leave." I'll mention we had 5 families/sites. Is that the way you want your employees to handle your guests?

We had a wonderful stay, weather was great, and we got to enjoy the pool this time. We usually only stay in the fall months so we never get to try out the outdoor pool.

My grandkids & I had a wonderful time, had not been to this KOA in 20+ years, loved the improvements, everyone friendly and polite.

We had a very pleasant stay. The children enjoyed the river, the giant pillow, and the swimming pool. A very friendly atmosphere.

My family and I always enjoy our time at Cherokee KOA this trip was no different. The staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful people. We enjoyed the activities especially the tie die shirts and the young man who helped us with them.

We enjoyed our stay at KOA in Cherokee. This was recommended by a co-worker and friend. The cabin by the river are the way to go. There were no problems with the bath houses. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend to a friend.

We took the kids for the water wars week end... Had a great time. Perfect weather, The bounce pillow was great and the staff was awesome. The only negative was the BBQ Saturday. Would NOT recommend.

Bob, your Maintenance Supervisor was great! He came over to our campsite to show us where we could park, due to the limited space of how our cabin was situated in proximity to the road...Then, at the end of our stay, he happened by when we were leaving out and said he'd take our trash bag to the dumpster for us, made our stay that more enjoyable...Just wished my fishing would have been as good!

14 years coming here sometimes three times a year and this was the worst ever. There is a cancer growing there and it starts with the management and goes directly down to Lynn, head of housekeeping, to Don, maintenance and office, and his wife Jill. There are great people there and I will come back. Erin, Mike, the other Mike(Crash), Sandy, Bo, and most of all Billy. Great people! Changes needed!!

This has been a yearly trip for us for many many years.It has changed owners since we were there last year and I must tell you that some of the people working there are very very nasty and have no business doing what they do! I will just give you one name of an employee that really needs spoken to. Mike Stevens.RUDE and thinks he runs the place! I will be writing corporate about our visit.

We had a great time everyone was very helpful and the camp ground was very very neat and clean. The tables in the pool area were not very clean but everything else was . The snack bar had great food at a reasonable price. I would definitely go back.

Always nice to stay @ this KAO, however this trip there was no one @ the guard shack. There was no security of any kind my entire stay. This should be corrected immediately.

Not impressed with housekeeping in cabins or bathrooms but the staff (Addie, Billy, Woodrow and Freemon?) were great! Always checking on us and our dog. Wanted to pack up those 4 and bring them back to our KOA!

Outstanding visit! Extremely friendly staff.
Aug 12, 2014
Nice area, along the River, Deluxe Cabin was clean and efficient. Would be nice to have a small bar soap in bathroom at sink and small detergent in kitchen to get started. Small things but nice. Overall great stay!

I really enjoyed my stay at your campground. The staff ws very nice. The bathhouse and restrooms were always clean. The cabin that we stayed in was clean and provided enough room for my family. I would recommend this campground to other familiy members.

Only issue our family had was a leaking cabin

enjoyed this campground, lots of fun things to do with the children. Price is a little expensive.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin. It was very clean. Bed on pullout sofa is an air mattress which was very comfortable. Bounce pillow was a big hit with the kids.
Aug 11, 2014
We had reservations to have been put beside my friends that were going too but they did not, but the cabin that was beside them was empty the entire time. Also the employees treated us as if we were a inconvenience to them. Closing the snack shop even when customers we in line to buy food. Poor customer service.
Aug 11, 2014
The campground workers were very nice. The only problem was the showers. No where to put your stuff while showering. Other than that the campground was good. The kennel was not good. Will not leave my dog in a cage, he has never been caged and never will. Having only one fenced area where all the dogs of all sizes were was not good either.
Aug 11, 2014
Needs some work in places but overall more than satisfied and would stay again
Aug 11, 2014
Everything was fine. You need to have maintenance check the lamp assembly on the ceiling fan. It appears to be missing some screws.Cabin 60.

I've stayed here many times and am always sad to leave. The location is so beautiful and there are so many fun things to do. I'll be back!

Perfect! The cabin had everything we needed in a beautiful setting. Planning on coming back soon!
Aug 05, 2014
This KOA is a great place to stay!! We loved the pool and all the fun things they offer for the kids. The shuttle was great also! We will be back soon!!
Aug 05, 2014
cabins broken down, showers are broke no hot water,dog crap everywhere,food was terrible and expensive,activity people knew nothing, they were very unprofessional, and rude! how about refunding some of my money!
Aug 05, 2014
Of all the KOAs I have stayed at this was my worst experience--bathrooms were not clean, no picnic table at my cabin and sites way too close together--I will find other accommodations when I am in area again

Too many dogs, showers need reworking, to many thieves , left cell phone in shower house 4 & someone got & keep it,

The location of the campground, the cabin, and the children's program are all great! The cleanliness of the bath houses and bathrooms were not at all up to standards. I did report this to the desk staff at check out and asked that she report to management. I witnessed a housekeeper come in to clean but only took a glance- did not clean. A tampon was left on the floor in a toilet stall all day.
