Tent Reviews

Sep 08, 2014
This is a great area for RV's and pull behind campers but not so great for tents. There were only a handful of tent sites and they were all muddy with little privacy and were all beside a pond next to a noisy highway. I do think it is great for the other sources of camping since there are two pools, hot tubs, a bouncy and playground for the kids & good food services. Thus 3 stars.

Men's bathroom was always dirty and flooded with water most of the time. People with tents didn't have anywhere to get water. Overall my grandkids enjoyed it.

I asked to have the men's side bath house sprayed for yellow jackets two separate time and this was never done. There was multiple lights that needed to be changed in the bath house area. The sinks were missing the screen that screws on where the water comes out. Half of the hot tub worked and the other half didn't work. Other than that, I enjoyed myself and the staff was very friendly.

Our stay was pleasant. The only issues we had with the camp is the rain doesn't run off in any direction and had all the site around bathhouse #1 terribly flooded and muddy. Otherwise the men side of bathhouse #1 was in bad shape most of the time...could probably stand to be cleaned in the evening as well as morning. All and all my family and I love KOA camps and will definitely continue to stay

We had a wonderful time. The campground was great and full of activities for the kids. Can't wait to return. One suggestion - clean bathrooms in mid-day, not in the morning when visitors need them.

even with all the rain and having to move to higher ground we enjoyed our stay the area is beautiful with lots to enjoy in the campground and in the local communities. great for all ages. lots of help from the office team and enjoyed working with them and they went out of their way to make our stay pleasurable. I have never stayed in a KOA before but it wont be my last

My kids loved all the activities and events that the campground had during the weekend. Overall we had a great experience and will be returning. My only complaints would be the dirt in the mens bathroom and the overall noise made by the two pit bulls that were located 2 campsites removed from ours. These dogs were large and aggressive, I'm glad they were chained at all times.

We liked the campground but there should be more spots for people with tents. We were first assigned a camping area next to the dog toilet which was rather smelly. When we complained, we were assigned a better tent site though. Otherwise good breakfast offers, nice pool, helpful and friendly employees.

It was ok but there were a few issues. Indoor pool was closed for decontamination. Outdoor pool was filthy. Staff inside was not very friendly.

We stayed in a tent and really appreciated the upgrade to cabin free of charge when a severe storm came. Thank you

I think this is one of the best KOA's I've been to on the East coast! I do however have a few suggestions...the pools needed cleaned for tubers were coming into them a muddy dirty mess and not hitting the showers before hand so the pools were murkey because of this. Showers should be enforced and maybe some clarifier in the water? The only thing missing was karaoke! Gotta have karaoke!...:)

Stay was great the only problem was some of the bathroom faucets were loose and water sprinkle you all over also.Showers could be better?

We had a very nice stay. It would be nice if we were allowed to check out of our tent site, but stay on site for a couple of extra hours. My kids wanted to do a couple of activities, but we were told we had to leave by 11:00

Had a great time here. Only wish they had tent pads on tent sites.

We loved the amenities - great pool, playgrounds, etc. but not the tent site or bathroom. Our tent side flooded easily with many puddle-holes. The guys side of the bathroom had a clogged drain and kept water/mud on the floor the entire week. This would be a great place to park a camper.

Some of customer service clerks were very rude. Nothing exciting to do during our stay. My family and I are not likely to stay again. Bathrooms were very nasty. We paid a lot of money to stay and thats what we got in return. Not happy at all.

We had an amazing trip to KOA Cherokee! Everyone was so kind, helpful, and accommodating! Will definitely come here many more times for years to come! :)

Overall pretty good experience but the parking space for t38 is nothing but railroad ballast and black slime mud, not fun. And why a tent space with no hookups is so expensive is beyond me.

The campground was very family friendly and kept the kids very entertained. Our tent site was primitive with no water and no place to wash our dishes, so that was difficult. In hindsight, we wouldn't use the shuttle again - one driver was very nice but one was exceptionally grumpy. It would have been better to just drive ourselves since parking wasn't an issue at the venues we attended.

Enjoyed the stay! Plan to visit again :)

We enjoyed our vacation at koa cherokee. Everyone was friendly. Our only 2 disappointments were the game room and that the ponds were not stocked in the 4.5 days we were there.

We had a great time, despite the rainy conditions. Kids enjoyed the bounce pad and the pools!

Ponds were not stocked as specified. Fishing rules were incomplete resulting in a $100.00 fine. We were not told only 1 line per person was allowed. Where we are from you can use as many lines as you want if you have a license. Your campground personnel should be trained to impart this information to all individuals purchasing a license or, at the least, provide a pamphlet of rules.

Even though it rained almost the entire time we still had a good time thanks to the activities available to us!
