My family decided to meet for my birthday at the Cherokee KOA for a relaxing camping trip. Relaxing was not in the cards however. The front desk staff was extremely rude and was more interested in enforcement of policies than helping its guests enjoy themselves. The cabin we rented was crammed in between two others not leaving our family enough... More

The only thing good about this place is the pool. From rude employees to nasty bathrooms this place was a total let down. The pictures online of their tent sites was nothing like they was and the mini golf was a joke! I was so excited to to bring my family up, after two weeks of searching for a good... More

As we often do when traveling with the camper we go from one destination to another sometimes staying somewhere for only the night to get back on our way the next morning. Sadly this was the case here. I thought we would never get there, it is way down in a mountain valley. But Oh My Goodness we were so... More

Had a great time the kids loved it. There are so many activities going on throughout the day. The indoor and outdoor pools were nice. The restaurant had good food at a reasonable price. There was a good selection of items at the store. Free shuttle service to downtown Cherokee and other locations. I don't recommend taking young kids tubing... More

We had a 2 bedroom cabin with a great view of the river. The two comfy queen beds would be perfect for couples or families with older kids. Had a full size fridge, gas grill, glass top stove (with pots), flat screen tv, air conditioning, a lot of plug outlets, and a dining table inside and outside. The staff was... More

Great kid friendly campground. If you don't like a lot of kids around you may not want camp here. Nice level and clean campground. Pools, bath houses, cable,fishing, river, activities, staff all were great. My Verizon phone did not work and their internet is really, really bad. We took grand kids and they had a blast!

My whole family loves this place. We will be back at least once a year, maybe twice. This is by far one of the best KOA's that we have stayed at to date and we travel a lot. Definitely recommend the Cherokee / Great Smokies KOA to everyone.

This Campground should rate in top 10 in America. This fact because if of their non-stop work friendly staff and an extensive program for children in the summer months. Fall in totally peaceful as well. After staying in approx 200 parks in 10 years, I know. Thanks and Wow!
