We happened to score a campsite at Happy Holiday at the last minute after having to cancel our reservations at a different campground because the site was too small. We called Happy Holiday and they let us look at the site before hand and it was perfect! We were at site 34 which was on the creek on the backside... More

I rented a cabin here with family. There was a total of 6 of us and we got the largest cabin, The Eagle. Although it was tight quarters, we managed to make it work. The cabin itself was very cute and rustic and right on the creek, storage space was tight, but we took advantage of every square foot of... More

Every year we go to Gulf Shores, but this year we decided to go to the Smoky Mountains. We wanted to stay near the Smoky Mountains but not near the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, so we decided to stay in Cherokee North Carlonia just south of the Smokies. We LOVED the RV park and I am... More

Otherwise it was in a great location, staff was friendly and helpful, restrooms were very clean with hot showers and the pool liked nice, but we... More

Expensive for what we got. we asked for a 50 amp hookup. Kept blowing fuses and furnace wouldn't run due the the power. Asked camp rep about it and he said someone would... More

Nobody running the campground. Loud music, dogs barking , no gravel on sites. Just purely. Bad condition for a $50.00 night campground. Service was very slow, restrooms clean but outdated. Lots of Full time campers really making the park look really bad

Love, love, love this campground. Beautiful scenic mountain creeks on the property to fish and play in, as well as a small lake on site. Flat campground roads to bike on. There is also a store on the campgrounds which offers breakfast and pizza. This campground is convenient to many activities in the Smokey Mountains and the staff are friendly... More
