The nicest group of people we have found. The manager and his staff do a wonderful job. Great place to camp right next to a beautiful river. Shown is the monthly rate We will be back. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Probably the nicest KOA we have ever stayed at. This is our second time here but definitely not our last. From the moment you pull in you can tell that the owner takes great pride in this property as the entire park is immaculate. Throughout the day you see the owner working to keep this place beautiful. Yesterday he was up on the roof of the office painting. Today he was cutting grass. It is not very often you see an owner doing that kind of work. The staff is very friendly and professional. I can keep going on and on but you get the point. If you are ever in this area I highly recommend staying here. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

We spent a week there in our 36 ft. motor-home backed up against a nice stream. We would clearly go back there should we want to stay overnight when traveling through that area or if we were we to again spend time in that general location. No complaints.

Nice little campground outside of Murphy. Our pull through site was rather small, close to next site. Bathrooms were dated but clean. Pool was nice. Not much of a camp store but walmart is about a mile away. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

THE GOOD: level sites, shady, quiet, close to town, pool, pet park, fishing and other activies nearby.

THE BAD: overflowing dumpster, flies, low power output when park is full, sewer problems, skid row, and the worst fresh water I have ever seen...it will discolor clothing and color treated hair, so beware!

THE UGLY:Caution, the park owner is like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He might greet, ignore or evict you depending on his mood.

Due to more bad and ugly than good we relocated a few miles away and are happy to have done so! We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Murphy is a nice town, nice people. Lots to see and do in area.

Found the 2 top notch restaurants to be overpriced, poor service and poor quality food. Local owned places provided better fare!

Be alert, since the casino opened the crime rate has increased in the area.

We have stayed here before while visiting friends in the area. The staff has always been courteous and friendly.

On this trip our rear A/C unit went out so the staff moved us to a shady site to help keep us cool.

That was our third stay with them and we highly recommend their RV Park. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent the night here on our way back home form our 2015 Fall Colors trip. We had a creek side site but you could not get to the creek because of the steep bank. That was disappointing. The staff was friendly and helpful but being late October, the park amenities weren't open. There appeared to be a good number of long term campers as well as a fair amount of overnighters. This was our first ever stay at a KOA and to be honest, we don't see what warrants the higher price. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Outstanding campground. Friendly staff, clean and well maintained grounds and bath house. 1st visit and already made 2 more reservations.

Spacious sites. Could not have had a better experience. This will be our 'go to' campground and our friends as well. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Murphy is nice small NC town. And a new casino is being built 1 mile from the campground. This may draw us back a few extra times to try and hit the jackpot!!

This is a poor excuse for a KOA. The park itself is clean, but the sites are small and the sewer connection is way back off the site. It would have taken about a 25' hose, so we dumped at their dump site as we came in and as we left. The bathroom & shower house is clean, but freezing! There are screened openings at the top, so no way to close up and heat the bathroom. In the mountains, where it gets very cold, it's ridiculous to not have a heated shower house. They have a pet area, but it is too big (the dogs would be too far away to see where they do their business or stop them from escaping or fighting with other dogs) and the hog wire fencing has holes so big, a small dog could fit through it. We would not come back. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

We would probably not use this campground again; grounds were not well kept and of the three front desk staff only one was helpful. The rest rooms were dated, however they still need to be cleaned. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

This was a nice campground. Shaded sites, large pet area, clean bathrooms, pool, and river access. Easy to get to because it is right off of the highway. It is set back far enough though that you don't hear any traffic noise. Walmart is right down the street. My only complaint is that our sight was very tight. Our awning almost hit our neighbor and our slide was right next to our neighbors picnic table. I would not recommend site 18 for large trailers or RVs. That being said, there are some really nice spacious sites at this campground. W just didn't happen to get on of them. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Campground was OK, not great. It is on a stream but, as with most commercial campgrounds, the sites are too close together. It has a pool, albeit small. And, the people were very nice. However, it seems like more of a place to park and stay than to vacation. We used it as base to go rafting at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City. That was awesome. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The name says it all. Peace Valley was a wonderful campground. We were creekside and enjoyed the beautiful scenery daily. The bathrooms and pool were spotless, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The sites were spacious and level. Overall a wonderful experience! We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is our favorite campground! The owner and staff are fabulous. They go out of their way to make your stay a wonderful experience. The grounds are immaculate with mature trees shading the sites and a huge fenced dog area. Location is perfect for easy access to kayaking, white-water rafting, hiking, tubing, etc. We love to see a campground with all types of campers: tents to million dollar motorhomes. Truly a family campground. We camped at Murphy / Peace Valley KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The best part about this KOA is the owner, and staff. Excellent is too low a rating. Just the best. Beautiful little river flows through property, and you can take a short tube ride if you want. Beautiful grounds, lots of stuff for my grandkids to do. Very clean pool.I usually only give Disney a 10, this place was great. If they were to put a hot tub in, the 10's would fall from that beautiful North Carolina sky. We stayed for 6 nights. Don't miss this place.
