RV Reviews

What a great place to stay. Facilities are without equal and the employees do their best (and it is wonderful) to make our stay perfect.

We had a great time on our first getaway weekend of the season. Kids loved the jumping pillow, indoor pool, playground and of course riding their bikes. Staff was incredibly helpful. The only negative was the condition of the grounds. I hope that when camping is more in-season that the appearance of the putt putt course, chess set and inner campsites will be well maintained.

Reservation was bad; did not want or need electric or water, but was given a full RV site. Arrived after 5:30 PM (office closed at 5) and left before 11:00 AM (when office opens) so no contact with the staff to fix problem with reservation. Office staff called to sort it out later and fix MOST of the issues.

Tried calling to make a one day stay and couldn't get through. Line asked us to leave a message and they would call back. Called back and got the same recording. We were close, so we headed there. We got there and the store was closed. Outside the store a gentleman was on his golf cart and he helped. Site was fIne. Water in shower were lukewarm. Some of the shower heads and handles were b

Sewer conncetion on the site was clogged. The water connection leaked. It appeared that it had frozen and cracked. Several pot holes inside the camping area.

Wish the heated pool and hot tub were up & running but understand, it was being rennovated. Showers & bathrooms very clean, inflated trampoline, chess game & putt putt great ideas. Friendly staff.

Very clean & great service. We were able to use a winter rate special & get a great site beside the creek. Will definitely be returning.

Very cold visit but enjoyed the peaceful quiet around a campfire.

Campground was very well maintained and clean. Even though we were there in an off season, the staff was very accommodating. One item that needs some attention is the consistency of the Wi-Fi. Not bad, just slow at times

Beautiful campground,good fishing,lots to do close by cheap propane! Now that's what I'm talking about!
Jan 06, 2015
Loved it! People were friendly, grounds were clean, hot tub was HOT!!! We stayed 6 nights and one man even opened up the game room for our girls to play games because we didn't notice it until our last night! Love our winter mountain vacations! Thank you!

Employee's where pleasant and helpful. River side sites were nice and comfortable. campground looked clean. Did notice alot of out of service postings on equipment,dryers, washers, bathhouses. Hot water in bath house took forever to heat-up, but i understand new plumbing is in the works. Overall we enjoyed it, the place just needs some upgrades.
Jan 05, 2015
Everyone was nice and I would stay again for sure

My only suggestion would be that you increase signage on the road before and after the school, especially at the bridge that takes you along the river on the other side of the campground. Our GPS directed us to take that bridge which ended up a dead end on a dirt road and we had to drop our tow and back up and turn around our 45' motorhome.

staff and facilities were great, but we prefer campgrounds with more trees, privacy.

We really enjoyed spending our "Campsgiving" at the Cherokee KOA. We met family and friends from LA, FL, WA, DC, KY, and AL. Some stayed in your fabulous deluxe cabins, while others traveled and camped in their RV's. We enjoyed the beautiful river flowing past the cabins and were impressed with the clean bathrooms. The Thanksgiving communal dinner was very much appreciated!

We love going to Cherokee each year for Thanksgiving. Our only issue is with Wi_Fi, it definitely needs to improve with all the usage going on.
Dec 01, 2014
Internet service was poor. Bathhouses were not clean.
Dec 01, 2014
Overall good experience. The pillow bounce and bikes were awesome. Pool needed cleaning but was nice. Jacuzzi jets did not work. Bathrooms and showers need modernizing. Staff was very friendly and helpful!!

The Halloween weekend is our favorite camping trip of the whole year, we have camped here for Halloween for the last 15 years and love it each time, they make Halloween great for us. The facilities are clean and well kept.

Had a great time. The staff provided deep fried turkeys and stuffing for a potluck dinner on Thanksgiving Day that was fabulous! We had a super time at the pool and hot tub while it was freezing outside.

Everything was great except the indoor pool and hot tub were not clean. The hot tub needs to be hotter also.

Very friendly helpful people campground had a very nice location. the plumbing in the bathrooms needs work very hard to operate bath house need to be replaced, I have noticed this at all of the KOA I have stayed at. You can only put so much makeup on a pig these cheesey remodel jobs I see in more and more KOA's. Night lights on bathrooms were out for 2 nights.KOA'S from montana to Louisiana have.

Parts of this park are very nice - the scenery; the proximity to GSMNP; the hard-working staff; the large laundry facility in Bathhouse 4. Parts of this park need work - internet was spotty at best; on-demand hot water system in BH 4 (which nobody told us about until we complained 3 times) resulted in terrible shower experiences in November. We can tell this is work in progress, so thank you.

Loved the Halloween festivities!

Best KOA we've ever been to! Will return again! !
