This was a nice clean park. It was not very full, but I would expect that with this time of year. The bathrooms were very clean. They had a heated pool. The staff was very friendly with escorts to get you to your site. There was a creek that surrounds the park with 2 stocked fishing ponds. The lots in... More

We went for Christmas 2014 and spent a week there, it was awesome! The staff was great, we fished in the stocked pond and got 30 trout is 2 hours time. It's on the Indian Reservation. The place was very clean and well maintained!

I've never been fond of camping trips... all the setup work when you get there, and tear-down when your tired and ready to leave. Renting a tiny minimalist cabin on the river with no frills was the perfect setup... just arrive, quick check-in, you can pre-purchase wood and starter logs for your campfire here and it will be delivered to...

We had a wonderful trip! We had so much fun in fact, we planned our family Christmas to come back! The cabins were fantastic, the spot was great, the wifi wasn't fantastic (but you should be enjoying the scenery instead of glued to your devices!!). Needless to say, we loved it. We will definitely be coming back to the Halloween... More

The Cherokee KOA was a great place to stay. The only problem we had was no wifi or cell service. The staff was friendly. The bathrooms were kept in excellent condition. They were always clean. It was a very pleasant and relaxing trip. The stream and fishing pond were nice. The indoor pool was open and we saw people using... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our campground. Our heated pool is open year round so you can even swim in January. We were made aware of people being sent across the river instead of staying on Big Cove Road so we are in the process of getting a sign at the bridge for redirection.... More

The cherokee koa is one of the best we've camped at. Everything is absolutely beautiful and clean. The raven fork river will hypnotise you as you're relaxing on its banks. Outstanding! My wife was amazed as we walked around the campground. Thank you!

We try to go to this location at least 2 times a year. Once for summer and one for late fall. We always have a great time. Plenty of activities, extra clean restrooms and shower areas and friendly staff will keep us coming back!

First of all this was a weekend trip with my semi large family of 5. Our 3 children are preteen -teenagers. They were not bored one second of the day. The general store is more than average, and the pool, bikes jump pillow and river is beyond wonderful. We ended up purchasing the koa membership. I can't wait to go... More
