We understood that this KOA was located in the mountains but to not have a decent WiFi connection was more than prehistoric. Their staff was NOT FRIENDLY. DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE 8 HOUR DRIVE TO GET THERE. Pick another place to go!!!

We came to KOA to celebrate our daughters 7 birthday. Great time to be had for all. Lots to do and see, very relaxing the children loved it as well as the adults. We will return this summer. Surprised to find a full canteen/grill on premises with dinner specials on weekends! They have a full breakfast, lunch & dinner menu.... More

Great Smokies KOA is our favorite campground. It is located in an isolated, beautiful spot in the Cherokee Reservation. We see elk crossing the road or grazing near the road every time we come and go from the campground. There are many things for the grandkids and it's a peaceful relaxing place for us. We camp here every year. We... More

My girls loved every second of our Memorial Day weekend trip! They loved the bouncing pillow, the pools, the banana bikes, and the new friends they made!!! We want to move there! We will definitely be back soon!

We had a great time at KOA! There is something for the entire family. Stayed many times before. Gets better every time. They do have a problem with carpenter bees though. I have an 18 yr old and a 5 yr old they both had a blast! .

the location was a little out of the way and not the easiest to find addtional signage would be helpful. Love the activities for the kids. Bathrooms, pools and common areas where very well kept and clean. I would highly recomment this location to friends.

Love camping at KOA.. Kids always have fun. Would rate a 5 star but I didn't get the cabin I requested and when I checked in, they had moved me all the way to the end of the campground and the employee that helped me didn't apologize and just said someone was suppose to call me. Of course no one... More

For the past few years my wife and I have enjoyed RVing. We have traveled cross country and are members of private campground network, and as a result we've had the opportunity to stay in and evaluate many camping facilities. Our favorite is, without question, the Cherokee /Great Smokies KOA. The amenities are extraordinary including paved, pull through sites, and... More

Had a great time at the Cherokee KOA. Friendly folks, beautiful location! No complaints from my family. We really enjoyed the indoor pool since it was a little cool during our mid-May stay. Spacious camp sites and convenient locations to attractions!
