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

We had a tiny cabin with a full size bed and bunk beds. We just stayed one night so it served it's purpose but next time I'll upgrade to a larger cabin, perhaps riverfront. There seems to be lots to do (pools, large trampoline contraption, fishing, etc). Close access to Harrah's, dining and shopping.

Our tent camping experience here was a little like being in steerage on the Titantic. While the pools and play areas were very nice and the RV and pull behind lots were nice the hand full of tent lots were mud holes next to a noisey highway. The showers didnt work and the men's toilets were stopped up for a... More

A friend and I flew out to the area from Salt Lake City wanting to experience the Great Smoky Mountains. We were camping so we stayed in a basic tent site. The check-in process was painless and the office staff was very friendly -- they answered all our questions and got us checked in very quickly. The tent site was... More
