Located just 1 mile from the new Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino & Hotel, the beauty and solitude of the Great Smoky Mountains make this KOA an ideal spot to settle in and relax for a while. Outdoor enthusiasts appreciate the campground's location for easy access to hiking, biking, kayaking and canoeing. Enjoy shaded RV Sites and Tent Sites along the Valley River, as well as four fully furnished Deluxe Cabins. Guests can wade into the water to cast their lines for trout in the stocked river. Take a dip in the pool, join other campers in the game room lounge, pitch horseshoes or play volleyball. Your pets will love the 1-acre fenced play area. The pavilion is great for groups and family reunions. You're a short drive from exciting whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River (Class III and IV rapids) or the mild, family-friendly Nantahala River. Take a scenic ride on the Cherohala Skyway, visit Fields of the Wood Bible Park or join in a class at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Pool: May 15 - September 15. Max pull thru: 65 feet.
