Meet Your Hosts
"Looking forward to seeing you in the western North Carolina Mountains!! AND we have GOLD in our River!"After a career in the hospitality industry, Matt Walters is the excited owner of Murphy/Peace Valley KOA. Originally from Pennsylvania, Matt lived and worked in Southwest Florida for 11 years prior to arriving at Murphy/Peace Valley KOA. Matt sees the true beauty of the Park and looks forward to spending time getting to know each and every guest. "The Campground provides a great atmosphere for everyone to relax and enjoy the pristine surroundings". Murphy/Peace Valley KOA operated for 6 years as Peace Valley Campground and Cabins. Peace Valley was only one of 13 campgrounds to receive "A" ratings for 3 years through Guest Reviews, sponsored by the National Association of Campgrounds and RV Parks. You will see Matt both in the office and around the Campground working to assure a GREAT guest experience. In his off time Matt enjoys playing golf and fishing for trout in the Valley River.
As a KOA campground, Matt is very excited to be part of the KOA family. "I constantly think about what I can do to make accommodations and services better, so my returning Campers will find something new to enjoy every time they return. My staff and I want to treat every guest the way we want to be treated", said Matt. We are also looking forward to the completion of the Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino and Resort.
