First time at this campground and it was very enjoyable. The only problems we encountered were the water pressure in the showers and the time it took to figure out how to get hot water. However, I was told that the shower/bathhouse #1 is to be rebuilt. The staff were very friendly and courteous, and the camp store one of the very best I have ever been in. All in all I will most likely return.

This was our first stay at a KOA and we loved it. Beautiful site for our motorhome next to the river with rapids, people fishing and the majestic mountains all around us. Breathtaking.

Friendly family campground. Fun for all ages.

Everything was great except for one thing. The sewer connection at our back-in site was uphill from our camper connection,so it did't drain as well as it should. Other than that we enjoyed the stay.

Roads seem to be in disrepair. Not many people abided by the rules and regulations as far as clothes lines, and walking through your site with you sitting right outside your camper. Most of the standard sites need resurfaced and repaired. Office personnel were pleasant but not knowledgeable of events in the area. Prices were a little high for this time of the year.

Hi, I want to start by saying that the staff was top notch. only found one toilet room that locked on the mens side. I even opened the door on some poor woman sitting on the can. I realize that being in a mountainous region you can't do much about the wifi signal but it wasn't available. Don't advertise free wifi that doesn't work! Overall my stay was nice. Just a few glitches.

Great trip, Will bring the grand kids next time to enjoy the play grounds and pools.

We have been coming to this KOA for 25 years. It will probably be our last. The woman that checked us in did nothing but argue with us and tell us we didn't know what we were talking about.The $3.50 charge per day for a RESORT is bull crap.Nothing has changed for the better at this KOA in 25 years and it's no resort.We were furious the gate to the pond was boarded up.Get the code box fixed!!!!

Site exceptionnel, piscine extérieure plutôt froide, personnel très courtois.

Restrooms should have been cleaned daily

Granddaughter loves your campground. Only wish the price wasn't so high, we could come more often.

Beautiful site (#378)backed up to a creek, perfect weather, friendly & helpful staff.

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.

Best camping experincs ever. sites were large and spaceous. staff really nice. lots to do.great stay. plenty to do for the whole family. thank you

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.

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

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.
Sep 16, 2014
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 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.

awesome KOA great for kids. Loved the outside hot tub.
Sep 15, 2014
We had a great Aliner Rally. A lot to do for families! Not handicapped friendly. The catered Buffet was EXCELLENT!!
Sep 15, 2014
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.

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.
Sep 15, 2014
Great campground except for internet access.
Sep 15, 2014
Really nice campground & well taken care of, we will stay here again
Sep 15, 2014
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.
Sep 15, 2014
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
Sep 15, 2014
Need WiFi networks.
Sep 15, 2014
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
