The campground is pleasant. Lots of amenities. However, the staff messed up several of our registrations. We had to register as a group under one name to get a group discount. My daughter lost her registration when one of the other reservations was cancelled. The stay was for a family reunion and she had to stay in town at a... More

We are so glad you enjoyed the campground and amenities. In response to the reservation mix-up, as I explained to you and showed you in all of the paperwork, the reservations were cancelled per the original person who made the reservations from your party. I had personally been working with the person who organized the reunion here at Yogi in... More

If you need a place to stay while in cherokee, this is it. Either cabins, tent or rv. this is the place to stay. Great fishing, plenty of things to do for the small kids, hiking trails . Country store, hay rides. Overall just a great place to stay.

Just spent ten days in one of the bigger cabins at Jellystone Park in Cherokee NC. We also had family members occupy two other cabins adjacent to ours. We had booked these cabins over six months in advance which enabled us to get our cabins together. The only problem we encountered during this period was the inability of the staff... More

Four adults and two kids along with two kayaks, three inner tubes, and two bikes, stayed in a Cherokee Cabin off the river. We actually did not miss the cell phones for a change! There is so much to do: swimming and tubing the creek, taking a dip in the heated pool, walking to Mingo falls, and driving just a... More

We had a blast! The Yogi theme was perfect for the kids and brought back my own childhood memories. There were plenty of activities, both scheduled and free-play, for our 2 daughters (4.5 and almost 2). My husband enjoyed the stocked trout stream, and I loved the peace, waterfalls, and nearby shopping. And the proximity to the Cherokee historical and... More

In my opinion this is the best campground in Cherokee, NC for families and especially for young cildren. There are activities all day for kids, there is a great pool for everyone and beautiful cabin and tent sites. My family and I had cabins 101, 102 and 103 on the river, for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. My... More
