We stayed a week from Dec. 30, 2014 - Jan. 5, 2015. We had a great time. It was close to Maggie Valley for the tubing, and close to Gatlinburg for the shops and not too far from Ashville for their AWESOME nature center. The people were friendly and nice. I just wish the indoor pool was as warm as... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin (one with bunk beds) on the river at Halloween 2014 for 2 nights. It was clean and warm. The kitchen is compact but adequate for a short stay. Great sized decking and a separate fire pit area. The gas BBQ wasn't working very well. Glad we brought our own. Indoor pool and jacuzzi... More

We visited in February of 2013 inside one of the cabins. It was wonderful! We were right on the river and could literally fall asleep listening to the running water which made for very well rested nights. The cabin was clean and just what we needed. Remember you aren't staying in a 5 star hotel so don't expect large bathrooms... More

My better half selected this campground because she had camped there with her family years ago and because of its cabins - and because I wanted to go to the mountains. Or maybe because SHE wanted to go to the mountains, I forget how that part went. It may have had nothing to do with me. The campground is nestled... More

We stayed at this Koa over Halloween. It was a good place if you have kids. Most of the campers decorated for Halloween and there are a lot of activities. We used it for a home base to visit smokey mountain national park. Great hiking in the national park. A few roads near by are hard to navigate in large... More

Spent over $600 to park the RV for an 11-night stay (and that's AFTER the KOA discount!) . Questioned the additional $3.50 nightly "resort fee", which is never mentioned on any document or website, and the manager could only answer that it was "for the pool and other things"! I asked to see the charge in writing - he said... More

Been going for years. This year was the biggest disappointment. New manager new rules. Ended up being the most stressful camping trip ever. Some of the employees were rude and hateful. Will NEVER return. Im sure any other campground will gladly take my $150 and treat me and my family with respect.

Stayed in the cabins at this campground! First and foremost, watch your head. Walked into the corner of the cabin when we first got there. Almost knocked me out! The corners are way too low on outside! Be very careful. Cabins were very small and beds and bunks were very uncomfortable! We expected to use the nice outside pool but... More

My fiance and I went on vacation for 4 days back in March, it was just starting to warm up. Cherokee is my favorite place! It was his first time there at KOA and he loved it too. We stayed in the smaller cabins and ours was very clean. Staff is nice, showers were great. Didn't take long to warm... More

I wanted to take a relaxing vacation for a few days, and get away from it all. Ive stayed in KOA cabins all my life, and I knew KOA would be a place to go. I researched about 8 of them, but the one in Cherokee was the best. A day before arriving, I emailed them asking what time are... More
