Full of amenities and activities for the kids and close to the quieter side of the Smokies. And not to mention clean bathrooms and several trout ponds.

Looked forward to pools, playground, and bounce areas. Looked very inviting. But, rain, rain, go away. Looking forward to staying in sunny weather.

Perfect location.So much to do here but the bathrooms were nasty and some of the older staff was rude. I have stayed at many KOA and was very disappointed.I said something to the front desk about the bathrooms but ladies at the desk acted if they didn’t care and change the subject of my conversation.Also speed limit wasn’t followed.I would return.I’m not going believe this is really how a

Other campers were very loud both before and after the quiet hour. Our tent site was close to the trout ponds and we were woken up around 5:30am by loud fish men and the smell of cigarette smoke coming from them.

Overall great experience at the Cherokee KOA. The water placement was inconvenient at site T43. Right in the middle of the campsite and creates a muddy mess in your spot. Moving the spigot should be considered.

The indoor pool and jump bag were awesome. However, the playground needs to be replaced as it has broken slides and no longer seems safe. Also, be prepared for a noisy road right by the tent sites.

The camp site was awesome. We were next to the bathrooms and laundry. The pool was just across the playground and they even have a general store and grill. I have already recommended the site to my friends

The site for the tent was expensive but I decided to go ahead and get it based on other things offered at campground. Disappointed hot tub was cool , awful smell in the shower room at indoor pool, bathhouse was not clean and water wasn't hot. Wood sold to us was so soft we went through 3 bundles in one evening. On the upside staff at the store we're very helpful.

The tent site was alright, but the placement of them really sucked. All the sites are against the fence facing the ponds and road so we had to constantly listen to people shouting and cars pass. I thought it was a little off putting that RVs or Cabins weren’t put there instead since with those you could actually get away from the loud noises.

We loved the place. Only draw back were the bathroom shower wasn’t very clean and the hot water cane and went making you shower in cold water. On the plus side the location was nice and the staff was friendly. I liked this KOA better than the Gatlinburg one. The sites were nice and the view was awesome.

First of all we wanted to cancel the weekend of Florence Hurricane and Joanne told me they would charge $ 10.00 cancellation fee. I said even if we are under a State of emergency? She said the campground was not! tent sites say the sand pads size not as advertised, no hot water for showers and pool ice cold and hot tub cold and had a slimey film on the top! Was not given a schedule of events.

Awful . I reserved a deluxe site and they put me into a regular site with power and said my resevation said it was deluxe . And said we couldn’t move because they over booked the site .

Terrible customer service. Nasty bathrooms. Never again.

We enjoyed the pool and the inflatable bounce thing. Also, the staff was very friendly. However, tent camping with the main road on just the other side of the pond was way too loud. Also, there were very noisy neighbors two sites down. Wished quiet hours started earlier. We’d rent a cabin here again, but we won’t be tent camping here anymore in the future.

We have been coming to the Cherokee koa for 11 years! This will be our 12th! We've stayed in tents, primitive cabins, upgraded cabins and the really nice cabins with full amenities! We have always had an amazing time and look forward to our trip coming up this year! See you soon!
