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 .

The Halloween activities were really fun and the haunted island was surprisingly super scary and fun

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.

Responsive and Friendly Staff. Disappointed that the standard campsites near the ponds have not been converted to tent pads because of mud when it rains. The entire standard site(s) could be made into a pea gravel pad with surrounding timbers and not constitute a “deluxe” upgrade. Centrally located water access is needed for all standard sites.

Love this place

Loved our week there, staff was just stellar,other guests were friendly, couldn't ask for a better campground.

The only thing I wasn't happy with was our site location. We were way away from the other tents at site 361 by the pond gates and everyone kept parking their golf carts in our tent site. It wasn't that bad though. The rest was absolutely amazing. The kids had so much fun. The water slide was a big hit for them. Definitely my favorite place to stay in Cherokee

Our first visit to this KOA did not disappoint! Lots of activities for kids and families. Facilities could use some renovation, as some of the showers/lights were broken, but overall a great little getaway!
