Looks a bit "rustic" from the road, but it is a great value. Depending on your site, you may get some road noise. Didn't bother me but the wife is a light sleeper. Lots of fulltimers and some folks who get up early for work. Only a few kids, which I liked. Some FHU pullthrus but mostly backins. Friendly staff and friendly neighbors in the park. Spotty OTA tv reception. Wifi worked well and it was free. Laundry facility was clean, $2 to wash a load and $2 to dry a load. The store isn't much of a store, but the place isn't very far from civilization. Should have done some fishing or at least walked around the lake. Looks like a nice walk. If you come here via I-459 and your GPS tells you to get off at Exit 10, DON'T DO IT!!!! Yes, you can still get here from Exit 10, but it involves many more twists, turns, and narrow roads. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The couple at the office were the very nicest and our reception was excellent. We had a military veteran rate that was better than any we have every received. Very lovely setting, very quiet and peaceful, no frills, but we didn't need or expect them. We absolutely loved this place! easy in and easy out in our large RV, We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Motorhome.

All we wanted was a spot to park overnight while on our journey. This was way off the highway and appeared a bit on the dumpy side, but since it was for one night we took it. We were led up and around a narrow, twisty road in poor condition, squeezing between vehicles parked on the road. Our site was narrow, gravel and not level. There was no handle for the water faucet and since it was one night we didn't question or complain about it. We paid $15 for the Passport America rate. I would not stop here again. I wished we had pulled into a rest area or Camping World which was down the road instead. The campground was very full and was quiet. We had a wooded lot next to us that was very pretty. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Motorhome.

The campsites are ok, but the park is a bit on the tight side getting in and out. In addition, it's a trip through the country to get there for an over night. If you are staying only for the night, go somewhere else. There is only a very marginal Verizon signal (no internet) and we were unable to get any TV over the air. The $15 is the PA rate. I would have paid $30 for something closer to the highway with phone and TV. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Needed a place to overnight and this was the perfect place. Pulled in just before dark and the owner lead us to our site. Pulled right in and left the truck hooked to the trailer because we were leaving early the next morning. Just needed one board to level up and pulled the bedroom slide out but had plenty of room for all of the slides if I needed to. The owner recommended a good place to eat where we had plenty of parking. Yes, the park had many permanents as other reviews have stated, but for $15 a night (Passport America rate), and a secure place to spend the night, it can't be beat! We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Owner was accommodating and waited for us because we had a flat tire. Site good, bathroom OK, but only had 1 roll of toilet paper between men's and ladies. Shower in men's was good, ladies shower could have used new shower head and an update. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America rate. Pros: WiFi is pay-as-you-go. Good, fairly quiet park except in am some traffic noise. No cable but get several stations on antenna (didn't bother with sat dish, so many trees),. Pretty scenery under the big pines. Cons: Bathhouse, laundry & clubroom is filthy & rundown. Shower drains backup when washers empty. Site not level for 40 ft RV (and few can accommodate a big rig at all). Interior roads poor shape for big rigs and roads to the campground narrow & bumpy. Will find a more convenient location for Birmingham sightseeing next time. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate was Passport America. Very laid back staff. Our pull through site's (11) size was large & easy to enter, but we had to carefully zig zag through trees to exit; others were OK. Hilly campground; workers staying there returned at 4:15 am in large dump trucks with air brakes. Due to trees our roof top dish was blocked. Verizon hot spot was very poor if it did work. Power was good. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Where do we start. Roads need work; buildings need updated, cleaned, maintained. And the “shadow” cut-outs that are every where are a bit corny. Layout is very confusing. Sites vary in size from spacious to way too tight if you have slides; site level varies just as much from level to WOW ok then. Our site had us pitched 5 to 6 inches to the front. Due to drainage and outdated (grandfathered) sewer problems, the washers back up into the ladies shower stalls. Laundry and shower facilities are located in a 1930's converted house. Washer and dryers cost $2.00 each. Cell phone service is glitchy. Internet service is through a pay site (not Tengonet). Prices weren't bad, $15.99 per week for 2 devices, $21.99 for a month; with awesome connection and data usage. Television is either antennae or satellite. We would suggest IF you are over 35 ft you call in advance for Big Rig availability. Lots of “perms” and they vary in attitude, the ones in our area were very friendly and welcoming. Management will work with you so your stay is pleasant and enjoyable. Rate shown is with Military Discount. Even with all of this parks quirks, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is Passport America. We arrived late (after dark) and left early. Our impression is of a completely adequate campground, although it was a stopover not a destination. The owner met us and took us to our site, helped us park and made sure we were satisfied. Very nice guy, enjoyable and made effort to be helpful. Many campground occupants appear to be semi-permanent. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites extremely small. Could not extend awning or slide. Owner and his daughter were both very rude nasty people pretending to be good Christians. Horrible experience. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The rate is based on the Passport America. Great place for the price. Management was great. They showed us several sights to choose from, lead us to our sight, and even helped us back into the sight. I am not sure what previous camper meant when they said "pretending to be good Christians". To the contrary, these folks were great! They are doing a good job and saw them working on sights while we were here. The lake was very nice. The rest rooms were OK and could use some updating. They are currently working on making sights better all the time. They could use a little leveling but were OK. I was able to park my coach and my van easily on the sight. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Motorhome.

This RV park caters mostly to long term usage. Nothing wrong with that. Just lots of really old RV's in need of repair. The road to the campground was a little sketchy, not the RV parks fault, just be careful. The road is very narrow, twisty, no shoulder with a steep drop off and lots of traffic. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Motorhome.

Park was full with a permanent party with the exception of 2 sites. I was parked in a driveway uphill with no shade. By driveway I mean in the middle of the road. This was once a good park but has seen better days. I would never stop again. The rate posted is Passport America rate. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
