This was our second visit to the Cherokee KOA and it was another great experience. Staff was friendly and helpful. After arriving we discovered the site we booked was not the site we wanted. We were able to quickly change sites without question or hassle. Main bath and laundry facility were clean and in working order. Plenty of onsite things... More

We have stayed at the Cherokee KOA every summer for the past 12 years and this one was the last! No outdoor pool, bathrooms and showers dirty, prices were very high, bedbugs in one of the cabins, customer service was poor, and they need to call Gail back in to run the place!

This was a nice KOA campground. We did decide to upgrade to a cabin from a tent site since it had just rained. The staff was very helpful with telling us about local attractions. If you stay here make sure to drive into town and try the river tubing. The river can be swift so children should be at least... More

Spent a week here in October this year. Went fishing in the ponds and in the beautiful natural river. Had campfires, enjoyed scenery, walked all over the area and cooked out. Place was clean, well maintained, very friendly staff and prices not too bad. Booked a reservation for next year. Same time, same place.

Our family of 6 spent several nights in October 2013 in a 2-bedroom deluxe (lodge) cabin. The kids had fun using the amenities like the big bouncer and the outdoor chess game. The river access was easy and there was plenty to keep them satisfied stepping among the pools and stones. The housekeeping staff were particularly helpful and accomodating (the... More

Rented a cabin for 5 days and I don't think it had been cleaned out for several, several months. It was nice to be along the river, but although they advertise Wi-Fi, don't expect it in the cabins. The showerhouse was filthy. It didn't seem to get cleaned like the posted sign suggested. I went to use a different showerhouse,... More

We tent camped. The bathrooms and all other facilities were very clean and well maintained. The nightly charge was more than we normally pay to tent camp, but they had so many amenities it was well worth the price. The other campers were friendly - most respectful of others in close proximity. We especially loved the big screen movie at... More

Rented a deluxe studio cabin! Loved it!!!! It was clean, and very convenient way to "rough" it!! I brought extra sheets and blankets but didn't need to, very clean. Wi-Fi signals are weak, but who cares!

LOVE the KOA in Cherokee and return as many times as possible each year. The renovaion on the outdoor pool was great and glad they still had it open for the season. Always rent the two room rustic cabins and the kids have a great time every visit. This place is perfect for the weekend getaway with the family, hope... More
