We had the pleasure of staying 6 days in Cherokee at the KOA. Loved the campgrounds and the surrounding area. The campground is currently under going some renovations and some updates. The only one that actually affected us was the water connections. The old ones leak but didn't cause any inconvenience to our water pressure or our campsite. We were told they update these but have to shut down the water to do so, therefore will be closer to winter (I suspect). The have cable tv, and full hookups. They also have cabin rentals. Some of these areas were a bit unkept, but again, didn't affect us. We traveled with another couple and both have 5th wheels. We had side-by-side sites. All sites are concrete pads and pull-thru. They also have concrete patios with picnic tables. For travelers with children, they have a variety of things to do... jumping pad, minature golf, indoor/outdoor pools, bike rentals, plus craft events daily. On Saturday evening they have entertainment near the main building. The staff and associates were very pleasant. They stopped occasionally at our site to visit and see if we needed anything. They also supply a shuttle to the casino, Cherokee "Unto These Hills" and shopping. We're going back in August. This is an active campground, if you like wilderness it may not be for you. We loved it.
