Ela campground is the best in the Cherokee/Bryson area. Paula and the gang have recently made many new great improvements making it even better. Prices have always been reasonable. Very large bathhouses that have always been clean. There's a store on site that has most anything you need from groceries, camping supplies to ice. My brother and I have been going there twice a year for several years and staying a couple weeks each time. They always make us feel welcome and even gave us tips on nice motorcycle rides in the area. Would definitely recommend Ela Campground to anyone heading to the Cherokee/Bryson area. L. Shiver

I Just wanted to share my experience with anyone looking for a wonderful camping experience to please visit ELA Campground. We rented the most beautiful camping trailer A29 it was a very clean and beautiful trailer. The view from the back deck was amazing I so enjoyed drinking my coffee and watching the beautiful river ... My kids enjoyed tubing the river and the really cool thing was that I could watch them while we cooked out on our back deck... They also enjoyed the pool and the playground. The owners and staff were so very helpful and friendly to me and my family.. I would recommend this campground to anyone looking to camp in this area.. You can also take the scenic railroad that is located in Bryson City about 5 min away so that is also fun.

Room Tip: All of the rental units a very nice but my personal favorite is A29

My husband and I needed a great get away. We picked Ela Campground because of the peaceful environment. The staff is excellent and everyone is so nice. It was a home away from home. The river is beautiful and such a site to see in the mornings.
