Cabin Reviews

Sep 28, 2014
Arrived to find I had a beautiful cabin with everything furnished. The deck overlooked a mountain creek and was complete with a gas grill for outside cooking. Had a great stay.

I wanted to take a relaxing vacation for a few days, and get away from it all. Ive stayed in KOA cabins all my life, and I knew KOA would be a place to go. I researched about 8 of them, but the one in Cherokee was the best. A day before arriving, I emailed them asking what time are they open to, as I planned a "late arrival". Well, they said they closed at 6pm. I found this odd. Ive NEVER had a KO

Bathrooms was not cleaned for a whole day and a half even after we told a gentleman that the two that came to clean would just set in front of the bathrooms taking pictures of each other then would drive around to the other side and do the same. VERY disappointed in the cleanest of the camp ground.

We really enjoyed our stay at KOA Cherokee. The Deluxe Cabin was more than we expected. It was very clean and comfortable. We will definitely return!

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

Enjoyed our stay.This was our third time staying and can't wait to camp there again!!
Sep 22, 2014
Enjoyed my stay here. No problems whatsoever. Very clean park and restrooms. Very courteous staff. Will be back.
Sep 22, 2014
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 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.

I enjoyed my weekend at KOA...so relaxing!
Sep 21, 2014
We totally enjoyed our week staying here. So relaxing....We didn't want to leave! See you next year!

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 18, 2014
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!

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!
Sep 17, 2014
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.

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
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
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!
Sep 15, 2014
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.
Sep 15, 2014
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.
Sep 15, 2014
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.
Sep 15, 2014
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.
Sep 14, 2014
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!!!!
Sep 13, 2014
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
