Cherokee,NC KOA thoughts??

Hey everyone. I've got a trip planned for this summer to Cherokee, NC and was going to stay at the KOA there. We stayed at the KOA in Townsend, TN last summer and had a blast, it was really a great campground. Want to try somewhere different and was wondering if anyone had any input on the Cherokee KOA. Thanks!

Hi MPrimeaux,
It is a nice CG. Lots of activities for the kids. It is clean and well maintained.

2X we loved the place. BUT finding it and the road to it were difficult. I'm convinced that KOA lives to site campgrounds at the end of cow paths. LOL!

Spent 6 days there in Sept 2014 for the early leave color, the NP and the lower Blue Ridge.


We chose a pull thru site in the interior of the park, paid extra for the upgrade but was well worth the price. Our site had a large pad and drive and open. Had great cable but the Wi-Fi wasn't usable 99% of the time, maybe they have improved it since? Cell service on our phones and internet device didn't work either. Would guess because of the valley we were in.


Seems to be a nice park, people friendly and had a variety of activities to do. Would guess it could be busy during the summer because of the cabins, number of sites and activates for kids. Sept was a prefect time for us.


It was located off the beaten path but findable. As mentioned the road in is a little narrow at times but we saw units bigger than ours there. Enjoyed the stay...but might stay someplace more central the next visit.

Our stay was okay. If you plan on doing any fishing tho, be prepared to pay the tribal permit fee, which adds up to a nice sum after a few days. They stock the ponds and river often, so at least you can catch some fish.

Just a word of caution when driving there, don't trust the GPS! We stayed at the Jellystone just past the KOA there last summer and our Garmin tried to take us off of the road the campgrounds are on, to follow a road on the other side of the stream. Meanwhile this "other" road is half washed out in one area and then it becomes a single lane jeep trail around a small waterfall only to bring you back out on the original road. we ended up having to disconnect the toad from the dolly to "explore", only to realize that the Garmin was taking us on an off road excursion no big diesel rig had any right to make. Granted rolling in late at night wasn't helping matters.

We stayed there a few times when we first got into RVing. Very crowded and when it rains, certain sites get really wet and soggy. There is little to no drainage. Sewer drain cover was under a piece of roofing shingle (no joke)
The straw that broke it for us was when we reserved a site just in front of the office -paved surface, tv cable and defined as premium. On arrival the kid that checked us in could hardly speak English. At that time they employed a lot of foreign exchange students. I told him we had reserved that empty site in from (I forget the number) and he said 'no, that site is reserved'. I tried to tell him it was reserved for us and he could not understand. We took another site and that is when we found the sewer drain under the piece of shingle and water in the tracks where we pulled in. The site we had reserved stayed empty the entire week end.
I sent a letter of complaint to KOA and got a letter from the owner who suggested we come back and he would buy us a pancake breakfast at their kitchen.
We will not go back.
