Campground Activities

Here at the Cherokee KOA, our recreation team has discovered the cure for spring fever: planning summer camping getaways! It's actually part of our job to create a fun experience for our campers-a task we don't take lightly. Whether you're peeling out on banana bikes, reclaiming your inner acrobat on the jumping pillow or unwinding in our pool, boredom is not an option.

Join us in season for campground activities including tie-dye t-shirts, scavenger hunts, campfire time, face painting, crafts, and many more! See below for details.


Two pools!

Two family sized swimming pools and a kiddie pool - 2 hot tubs. Indoor pool and indoor hot tub open all year. Outdoor pool, hot tub and kiddies pool close Labor Day.

KOA Campfire Time

When the sun goes down, campfire time begins. Gather around the fire pit and get acquainted with fellow campers. Campfire time promises all the classics: toasting marshmallows, eating s'mores, belting out camp tunes during sing-a-longs. We've even been known to swap a scary story or two! (please note that this is in season only).
