Welcome to Murphy, an atmosphere unlike anywhere else. Friendly people and relaxing vibe in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Camping the way it should be.
Located just 1 mile from Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino and the new UltraStar Entertainment Center, 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, rafting, riding, kayaking, and canoeing. Enjoy shaded RV 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, bass, brim, and catfish. Take a dip in the pool, join other campers in the game room lounge, pitch horseshoes, or play volleyball, basketball, and cornhole. Your pets have 2 fenced play areas, with one being over an acre and a small dog Kamp K9. We are 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, Tail of the Tragon, visit Fields of the Woods Bible Park or join in a class at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Pool: May 21 - September 20. Max pull thru: 70 feet.
