Campground Reviews

I have stayed at Cherokee KOA on multiple occasions but this was the first visit in quite some time. I rented a deluxe cabin this time and it was very nice! The unit contained all bedding and towels and we had our own private bathroom. Pets are allowed as well. We were located right on the river yet conveniently located close to the store. We're already planning our next stay!

What a great place to stay. Facilities are without equal and the employees do their best (and it is wonderful) to make our stay perfect.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Me and my husband had a wonderful weekend! The last time we had came in we had a horrible stay, so we were a bit skeptical this time. However, the new management are really doing a great job fixing up the campground!! Also, the staff is fantastic this year! I'm so glad because this has been one of my favorite places to stay for years and it was sad to see it g

I was amazed at the clean cabin and facilities

This KOA is surrounded by mountains...it is beautiful. We have stayed at over 25 KOA's in the U.S. and by far this is our favorite.

cabin was nice and very clean. kitchen sink faucet would not move from left to right and back without both hands and almost breaking it off.i thought that should have been easily noticed by cleaning staff.stove in cabin cooked extremely slow and had no oven, which was not the end of the world but we rented a cabin to have the ability to cook. overall good experience.

We had a great time on our first getaway weekend of the season. Kids loved the jumping pillow, indoor pool, playground and of course riding their bikes. Staff was incredibly helpful. The only negative was the condition of the grounds. I hope that when camping is more in-season that the appearance of the putt putt course, chess set and inner campsites will be well maintained.

This was our first time using one of the Deluxe cabins and we extremely happy. Our son likes this KOA very much. The cabin suits our family well. We were surprised at how well the cabin was outfitted with all you need. We are staying here again in a couple of weeks for spring break. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Thanks again.

Reservation was bad; did not want or need electric or water, but was given a full RV site. Arrived after 5:30 PM (office closed at 5) and left before 11:00 AM (when office opens) so no contact with the staff to fix problem with reservation. Office staff called to sort it out later and fix MOST of the issues.

The Studio Cabin was nice and cozy even with all the rain we had during our stay.

Tried calling to make a one day stay and couldn't get through. Line asked us to leave a message and they would call back. Called back and got the same recording. We were close, so we headed there. We got there and the store was closed. Outside the store a gentleman was on his golf cart and he helped. Site was fIne. Water in shower were lukewarm. Some of the shower heads and handles were b

Sewer conncetion on the site was clogged. The water connection leaked. It appeared that it had frozen and cracked. Several pot holes inside the camping area.

This was our first time staying at a KOA and we totally loved it. We will certainly stay again in the future!

had to turn on shower hot water to get hot water in kitchen other than that great place to stay i really liked the deluxe cabins

The only reason I didn't give a Ten is because your Wi-Fi connection was very unreliable. And since I went with a group of people who stayed in different cabins, it would have been helpful for quick communication (since there was no phone signal; which I don't think is your fault). Other than that, it was a beautiful experience & excellent facilities. I couldn't have been more pleased.

Nice staff great facilities!
Mar 16, 2015
I thought it was great. All of the facilities worked well, and the spot along the river was beautiful. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.
Mar 15, 2015
Cabin was very clean, and new. The staff was super friendly, and they helped us find a cabin that much better suited our needs for the same price without us even asking for it! They were very accommodating, and the river is absolutely gorgeous.

Warm welcome and accommodating.
Mar 13, 2015
Very friendly staff.

Had a great two night stay in one of the studio cabins on the river. Will be back again soon for some great fishing. Cabin was clean and people were friendly and helpful.

Drove 3 hours to Cherokee and when I arrived found the indoor pool was closed, the main reason I was taking my kids to camp. I was offered 50% off since they forgot to call me and tell me the pool was closed. It has been 7 days and still no refund on my credit card. Looks think I got scammed and very disappointed camping trip with my kids. Been staying there for years but this will be the last.
Mar 05, 2015
Beautiful campground would have been nice to know year round pool area was closed for redo when we called for reservation.

no running water at site no hot water in shower no indoor pool no hot tub/sauna reservation screwed up
Feb 23, 2015
The stay was very good this year. I appreciate the heater being left in the cabin. That was a nice touch and the staff was very accommodating. I would say things have improved at this KOA.
Feb 23, 2015
nice friendly people. very helpful.

Weather was very cold, but the cabin was nice and warm.

Great place to spend a night, a weekend or a month! Friendly staff, access to Cherokee area attractions.

We are usually campers, but for the Valentin's weekend we wanted to do something different. We stayed on one of the deluxe cabins. They were wonderful. The beds wee comfy and the setting was perfect. We had a great time. It was cold and a threat of snow almost kept us away but we had a great time. We're disappointed that were not able to use the indoor pool and hot tub.
Feb 17, 2015
If the pool and hottub had not been closed we wouldve been happy but it was an inconvenience because our kids had little to do with the weather being so cold. We were counting on the indoor entertainment.
Feb 17, 2015
This is a great KOA. Have stayed here both in our motor home and in the cabins and never had a bad experience. Highly recommend it.
Feb 17, 2015
Our stay was great . Only downfall was the pool and hit tub was closed for maintenance all weekend and the game room was closed.
Feb 17, 2015
Wish the heated pool and hot tub were up & running but understand, it was being rennovated. Showers & bathrooms very clean, inflated trampoline, chess game & putt putt great ideas. Friendly staff.
Feb 16, 2015
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Clean kabin.

Rates were great for valentine's weekend. Had issues with leaking sink in cabin and door know coming off immediately upon check in. Repaired sink fast but door know came off all stay. Woke up on Sunday with no hot water, it was subzero Temps an windchill, left water running all night as directed, no shower for ride home 21/2 hours.
Feb 16, 2015
There was no hot water in bath house nearest cabin 60. Other than that it was a fantastic stay!
Feb 16, 2015
Great place for a family with kids... Awesome friendly staff
Feb 16, 2015
Simply wonderful...in every aspect! :)
Feb 16, 2015
It sucked we stayed in a rustic cabin they said they had a space heater in the cabin it was small and didn't heat the cabin. Me and my husband stayed there and froze to death. It definitely gave a reason for us to cudfle. If we could have found a cheap hotel then we would have stayed in the hotel.
Feb 14, 2015
I was disappointed. got a 50% discount only cause the indoor pool was closed which i was not told about. Had to move cabins cause the thermostat wasn't working and the toilet was broke. Arcade didn't work, thought i got a 50% discount but it was only cause the pool was closed.
Feb 11, 2015
Good price. Clean kabin, bathrooms and campgrounds. Everyone I met was friendly and helpful. I will return for another stay.
Feb 09, 2015
