Campground Reviews

First trip in our new travel trailer and we had an amazing time. Kids really enjoyed the amenities (pool, trampoline, etc.). The community of people staying there were very friendly as well. The amount of decorations for the trick or treating was over the top, we will definitely be coming back again. Thanks for a great weekend!

We moved from a tent site to a basic cabin due to expected rain. We were told it would be afternoon (3:00) before we could move in so the cabin could be cleaned for us. We stopped one of your employees to ask about parking. He was able to get us into the cabin in a very short time, as he was cleaning the cabins at that time. Great employee by the name of Mo Mo. Parking was an issue at #65.

The campground was great! The only issue we had was the haunted island. It was a 2 hour wait to get through it... it’s difficult to wait that long at night with littles; however, we had a great stay!

Love the stay there. Close to everything. The campground is clean and the people are very pleasant

It's always lovely. They've forgotten my reservation twice now when we arrived late, but it was rectified. Beautiful area with lots of activities.

We had a great weekend in the North Carolina mountains. The Cherokee KOA was very nice. We had a one bedroom Cabin right on the Stream. Our Cabin was very clean and had everything we needed to make our trip Great!!!

Great place for kids but rather expensive

Couldn't ask for a better more friendly staff, store and grounds were both good. We have a self contained so we didnt need the use of the restrooms nor the clothes washing area. Thank you for a great stay.

After checking in with a gentleman that must have been having a bad day we met Billy and Brandon two of the most kind considerate helpful KOA employees that we've ever met. Very nice neat and clean facility almost worth the price of admission.

Even though it rained we had a great time. Cabin was very clean!

Not my idea of camping. Crammed in shoulder to shoulder with other campers. 4 to 5 steps between cabins and campsites. Sitting in the front of a campfire on the very edge of the road with cars passing closely by, listening to 5 other campsite conversations around you. KOA packs them in for the money. I will think twice about reserving a KOA campsite next time.

Made reservation Arrived 25’ trailer would not fit on site Office said they were busy i would have to wait Offered alternate site without sewage for a 7 day Stay. I refused Offered a site that was terrible Had to park parallel to road with awning sticking iut over the edge if the road Moved to better site on sunday Office people have no idea of rv site sizes or issues Very disappointed

People beside us in 232 had a camper, 2 vehicles, golf cart, and 1 utility trailer on the lot. Made a lot of noise playing loud music and popping fireworks in fire pit. Stayed up past midnight and had 2 tents over picnic table with bright lights shining on our site.

Had a wonderful time. The cabin was outstanding. I enjoyed the trick treating but it was unfortunate we had all the rain to put a damper on it. I will be back next year.

We had a great stay until check out day.When we went to hitch up our fifth wheel we found one of the front jacks not working. The front desk was very helpful in referring two companies who might be able to help. We couldn't get anyone to help until the next morning. We had to stay. We were stranded and unable to move and we had to pay full price. Wish there could have been a discount or something.

I was a little disappointed in my stay this time. I know the weather you can't help but I wish they would have had the activities indoor if it was pouring rain. We got stuck in the cabin because of the weather. Lots of things were missing or broken in our cabin, the mattress on the pull out couch was nothing but coils. the light in our room above our bed, one was broken and one was completely miss

Over-all Great experience.... Loved the week-end planned activities, looking forward to your Thanksgiving activity weekend!!! Only issue I had during the stay had nothing to do with the campground itself; my site was against the trout pond and across from this was a resident, every time a car would pass their dog would go crazy with the barking... Nothing really that KOA can do about this...

Paid over $90 a night for a spot that was suppose to river front (was not) and right beside the bounce pad. The desk employees were rude when I went and asked about paying this much for a misrepresented site and offered no alternatives, will not be back.

Great fun as always.

Should come for the Halloween fun

We always have an enjoyable stay! The staff is kind and accommodating. The only thing that I would improve is the parking for the cabins on the point. The parking was a tight fit for most of our stay but the view of the river and the little creek made up for it. I could’ve sat around the campfire for a few more days and watched my family fish. I look forward to staying here every year!

The cable tv did not work. You checked it out and the person said something about a power boost. We have never had this problem at other campgrounds.

Great cabins on the river and many activities for the kids

Staying at the KOA Cherokee was a fantastic experience! It is surrounded on all sides with mountains and the tree foliage was beautiful!

We come 2 or 3 times a year. This Oct. Trip was the absolute best time we have ever had.

Everyone was very friendly. It was a great time for me and my grandson. They keep the place very clean. Great stay

The staff was friendly and accommodating. The cost, $300 for 2 nights was excessive. The cabin was small, the bedrooms were tiny and the living/kitchen area was tight for a family of 6. The location of the KOA was remote and the sign said "Holiday" instead of saying "Cherokee / Great Smokies KOA, which caused confusion upon arrival. We will stay on the other side of the Smokies in the future.

The campground was very nice and well maintained. There were lots of things for the kids to do. We made use of the shuttle to go into Cherokee since we didn't take a vehicle with us on this trip. We stayed 3 nights in a motorhome. This is a place I would visit again.

This was our 3rd year attending and we typically rent the same cabin, L241. This year, our cabin contained a mildew/mold smell. We immediately identified the smell and was told but our KOA check-in rep that this was normal since the cabin is so close to the water. We told him that there wasn't a smell last year when we stayed in the same cabin, but we were not offered to move to another cabin.

We went for a 4 day weekend the second week of October. It was great!! Many activities for the kids and a spooky walk that we all got scared on!! Everyone very nice and accommodating.

We came back after two years to Cherokee KOA. There have been great improvements made under new management! Really nice schedule of events for our kiddos on the Halloween weekend. The only suggestion I have would be that the restrooms need more attention. The smell of urine was really bad in the bathhouse closest to the office as well as in the ladies restroom by the grill.
Oct 21, 2019
One of our favorite campgrounds. We’ve stayed here many times and hope to again in the future. Love the stream and all the Halloween decorations. Would love if there was a shuttle to the casino. The bathrooms were so much cleaner this year.
