“good place to camp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We were at this campground over the Labor Day weekend. It was a bit crowded as was every other good CG in the area. Nice sites. We could not get river front but had a great time. Place was clean and people friendly. Only down side is we lost money at the casino but I guess that was not their fault :) Would try and get a river front site if you can.

Room Tip: riverside if possible

W/ national park campgrounds closed, we tried River Valley. Our site was right by the river, so we definitely enjoyed the roar of the river rushing by. There was very little grass, so our site seemed dirty/muddy, & there certainly wasn't the privacy that we have experienced at Deep Creek & Smokemont in the past. Bath house was adequate.

Room Tip: If you are in a pop up camper or tent, opt for a site by the river.

I went camping her with my family and we had a great time! We stayed on the riverfront site with picnic table, fire-pit, water,and electricity. Everyone that works there is very friendly and always willing to lend a hand. The bathrooms would get a bit dirty at times but they would clean it everyday so it happens. Its very relaxing and you can leave your stuff and not worry about anything getting stolen.

We camped here during the Cherokee Trout Derby. The area was clean and quiet. It was great spending time with our family and relaxing. It was completely amazing to me that you leave you things the open and not worry about them being stolen. We could leave for hours and everything would be as we left it once we returned. I would recommend this campground.

We had a great riverfront site with table, fire pit, electric and water ($37 per night). The river blocked the noise around us. The bathroom is centrally located, but like most campground bathrooms was a little dirty. Mold all over the shower curtain and the tile grout. This could easily be fixed with a little effort. The laundry is expensive $2 to wash and $1 to dry (dryers don't work so plan to put clothes through three cycles). Staff were friendly. Close to town. You can do a short tube float from your site. I'd stay here again. The nearby Yogi Bear KOA is jam packed with campers and I would avoid it.

Room Tip: Stay on the river if you are camping or have a pop up.

We reserved our spot on the river a month ahead just because we knew how busy they are this time of year. I had never stayed at this particular campground and, I admit, I was skeptical it would be much pumnkin because it was so cheap. I was WRONG WRONG WRONG!! The employees were fantastic and very helpful. Our spot on the river was as big as promised. The park was quiet and the childeren well behaved. Bathrooms were great, clean, and well stocked. We are already planning another trip there soon!
