Second time for us in this campground. Although we still like it fine and recommend it, we did have a little trouble. We reserved and paid for a full hook-up site. When we got to our site, we found it did not have a sewer connection. It was after dark when we got there, so I agreed to go ahead and set up camp in the site. They mentioned changing sites the next day, but I decided to stay put once we were set up since we were only there two nights. I was able to get my money back for the difference between a full hook-up site and a electric/water only site. Turns out their computer showed the site (#290) as being a full hook-up while in reality it isn't. Otherwise we had a great time and will return here again in the future. We camped at Cherokee / Great Smokies KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park. We got there late, after dark, but was able to get checked in and then into my spot without much trouble at all. I had read negative comments about the staff not speaking English, but we had no trouble at all. A nice young lady from Bali helped me several times in the campground store. The whole entire staff that we came in contact with was super-nice. We had a full-hook-up back-in site. A nice family was camped next door and, since it was dark, they helped me get backed in and situated where I needed to be on my site. The pools and hot-tubs are very nice. The other park amenities are all very nice. The only thing that aggrevated me a little is that the map on the campground website is somewhat misleading. It portrays a straight shot through the town of Cherokee to get to the turn-off for the campground, but there are a couple turns that must be made. I wasn't expecting to have to turn and I missed one of them and wound up going several miles the wrong way before I found a place to turn my 53-foot rig around. This was a minor setback, however. My overall opinion of this campground is very good and I will be staying there again on my next trip to the area with no second thoughts.

The campground was awesome! We had originally intended to stay at Lakewood, but at the advice of my sister-in law, we chose to stay at the Travel Park instead and are glad we did. All the amenities were great. Staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. Both pools were great. Nice game room for the kids. Park has a store and a laundry which we used. Location of park was great as the entrance was only a mile or so from the off-ramp of highway 22, which we came in on. Also, shopping, Wal-Mart and grocery stores were very close by and easy to get to. We will most definitely stay here again! We camped at Myrtle Beach Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.
