Turkey Creek Campground
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We stayed two nights here in our 18ft camper. Next trip to the Smokies, we'll just come straight here and stay a week. This is NOT a KOA. If you're looking for that, or if you have a big rig, you will not be happy. This is one step up from primitive. To me that's a good thing. It's very "woodsie" and the sites are haphazard enough that you don't feel like you're in a parking lot. The baths are gorgeous and very clean. If you are here in the fall, be very careful with your site selection and where you park your car. There are tall, beautiful walnut trees and they will bomb you. Our site was perfect, but some of the other site's water spigots were not threaded and some electric plug-ins seemed weirdly located, so you have to pick your site with your hookup requirements in mind. Mike has a tremendous knowledge of the surrounding area's recreational opportunities. Take advantage! This place has the feel of a US Forest Service CG, but with hookups. We'll be back.

This was our second time at TC and we stayed six nights. The Smiths are genuine hosts. They give the campers privacy unlock a lot of privately owned campgrounds. TC is is very well maintained and quiet hours are strictly enforced which this late sleeper enjoys. There is a fast glowing creek that runs through the campground, if you can snag a site on the creek you've struck gold. I love TC and planning a trip in a few weeks!

Great out of the way campground for tent campers and smaller pop up type campers. Sites have electric but the plug in can be 100 ft from the camp site or tent as in our case. Michael and Pam are great owners. We were about an hour late arriving and Michael called me by name when I walked into the office. Was very homey and Pam had fresh baked goods in the office for sale Sat and Sun morning. They treat all their customers like family. We will be back. Camp sites nice and clean the shower hous and bathrooms cleaned regularly and updated. Could use another washer and dryer in the laundry room

The Smith's are truly some very sweet genuine folks -- Turkey Creek Campground is a must for Family & Friends to gather together for some great
Times together. Everything is laid out very nicely. Our fellow camper neighbors were very nice too. Love that they recycle & believe in the PAWS program too. Thank You Both For a Nice Time!! :) best wishes & see u soon

Turkey Creek Campground is great for tents and small campers. It is quiet, wooded, and nicely landscaped . Some sites are close together but there are a variety of sites.The owners are friendly without being imposing. We enjoyed the rule that "all the time is quiet time". Ice and firewood are available for reasonable prices.The bath house, laundry and area for cleaning dishes are all exceptionally clean and neat! We truly enjoyed our 4 night stay here!

We just got back from camping at Turkey Creek Campground. Quiet, clean, well-maintained campground and very close to Nantahala River, Fontana Lake, and not too far from Cherokee. The bathhouse was incredible! My boys and I enjoyed Huey, the camp dog, who was a gracious host, and escorted us down the short trail, from the campground, to the lake for a swim. We made great memories and will return again.

Great family camp near Nantahala a rafting. CLEANEST bath facilities we have ever seen at a campground. Sites were a bit too close together but very pleasant and quiet, Beautiful little creek runs through the grounds and it was great falling asleep with the sound of it in the background. Well managed and friendly.
