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.

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!

The campground was very clean. The staff was very helpful. The wood we purchased was wet and very difficult to get it burning. We wished the campground was more in the woods, but we still had a great time!

Great location! Check in was quick and easy.The staff was very friendly.We were given a choice of tent sites and when we decided to switch it was no problem. Nice bathhouses. My 10 yr. old son LOVED the bike rental, mini golf and bouncing pad. We LOVED swimming in the warm indoor pool and hot tub while my husband enjoyed a football game on TV. Outdoor movie by a firepit! Fantastic family weekend!

The staff at check in were incredibly helpful and made it easy for us to change tent sites. Our initial site was too small and we were able to move. There was a large group staying across from us in cabins. They were very loud until after midnight each night. It would be helpful to have someone patrol the park occasionally during quiet hours to enforce this rule.

Had a wonderful weekend to camp. But. We reserved our spot on Friday. Checked in and went to set up tent. Someone had our spot so we took the one next to it. Wish we had went somewhere else. They kept us up all night drinking and being loud. Security had to come 3 times. They should have been made to leave. Got to stay free. The staff was great. But won't be back no time soon. Beautiful campgrou

This Koa is situated deep in the mountains with streams on both sides. It is a step back in time while having all the modern conveniences campers demand. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

We are tent campers. This location is definitely not catered to those who tent camp. There were only about 10 of the 300 spots that are dedicated to tents only. They all had big mud pits in the front of them, and they're located right next to the main road (so lots of traffic noise). Other than that, we had a great time and there are so many things to do for kids.
