Aug 2013 - $30.00
Somewhat remote with very wide clean, level sites. Trout stream runs immediately behind campsite and two fishing/swimming lakes on property. Charged $3 extra for AC usage but we only needed it one night in August. Very nice golf course is 1 mile away but good restaurants are close by in Bryson City. Baths and showers are a little old but very clean. Large open grassy field is across road from campsites. No antenna TV or radio and Verizon was marginal. I was able to get my dish tailgater to work. - Crottys

We loved this campground tremendously. The sites are large, the stream looks and sounds great. They have a small pond to swim and another to fish. There are plenty of trees but not too many you have trouble getting around. Hostess and her grandson were great. The campground had the feel of a state or national park. Make sure to follow the signs or advice if you call. We have a 30 ft fifth wheel and did not have trouble getting to them or into the site. We will come back here when we're in the area again. - kangmoe

What a great little campground. No real amenities (a sewer hookup would have been nice), but the camp sites were very large and private. The campground was very quite. We could hear the little stream we backed up to gurgling in the night. Plenty of places to walk our dogs. Convenient to Cherokee and surrounding attractions. We had so much fun we extended our stay an extra night. - rascalydog

This is a small campground, which only caters to "nice" campers, which are less than 10 years old. The grounds are very nice, well-kept and neat. There is a shelter where small groups can gather or use for cookouts. We were there at the end of the season, so the store was not well stocked. One employee (manager?) was somewhat moody, being friendly and chatty one moment and cool and businesslike the next. All staff were pleasant and not difficult to deal with. Dogs MUST be kept on a leash. Management WILL let you know about it, if they aren't. - eternalskeptic

All sites are backin, one side to a river the other to the Great Smoke Mountain RR used by a tourist train. A steam engine occasionally goes by, neat! The road and sites are gravel with a cement patio on the site. There in one straight road through the CG no turnaround at the end for RVs. The road is wide enough for backing in, the river side is blind. There are bushes and trees in all the sites so be careful backing in. The cable TV, 50a, water & sewer all worked fine. Our rooftop dish worked through the trees. Our Verizon hotspot didn't work well, the phone did. The CG WiFi worked most of the time. The staff is VERY friendly and had a free BBQ meal and music Saturday night. There are many seasonal or long term RVs there and are very well kept. - big greg

We have stayed at this park 3 times We really enjoyed it very much. big wide sites, some shade, restrooms and showers are the best I have been to.The owners are very nice and friendly willing to help any way possible. Will be going back. It is mostly for middle age people and retired folks. Great place. - linda camp

Great park. Clean as can be. Front office is knowledgeable on the local area. She guided me to my camp site. She was polite and professional. Probably the best check-in I've ever done. The sites are not crowded together like most campgrounds near Cherokee. Wifi and cable TV were good. 50 amp. The drive in is not an issue. Shade trees everywhere. Paved roads. Most sites are level gravel. Highly recommended. - All American 6

Park itself is quiet, convenient to Cherokee, clean & reasonably priced (reflects passport America discount). Park advertises that it is big rig friendly, which is true but should be received cautiously- narrow roads, tight turns etc. We had no problem in our 40 foot class A. Utilities reliable but water pressure low, pump required if showering. We would probably not return to this park due to the resident Manager. She insisted on directing us into our back in site regardless of it being easily handled ourselves. She set us up so our slides would have come out into a tree. My husband easily readjusted our bus so as to be better placed in the site, all the while the manager stood outside berating him. She then proceeded to sternly and in a very unwelcoming fashion dictate to us the park rules. Her overall manner is unwelcoming and unfriendly. She told us since we were getting such a good rate on the site we should take it easy on the use of electricity and sewer. She also told us on numerous occasions that her park was not built for vehicles our size, which given they specifically advertise them selves big rig friendly we found curious. - leemhicks

As said before, narrow road in, but it worked for us with 40' Motorhome, towing. We had a back in site that worked good. Some of the other back in sites are steep to get in to but appear fairly level when you are in them.
Very informative woman at check in.
Some permanent and seasonal sites but all were very well kept up.
Quite, clean park and good access to Smokey Mountain NP.
We would stay here again if in the area. - 210george

Stayed at Fort Wilderness several days over Labor Day holiday mostly due to most other campgrounds had no sites available and poor planning on my part. We used to camp with our grandson there 14 or 15 years ago and it was a great place to camp. It is sad to see how this campground has fallen into disrepair over the years and we will not camp here again. We paid $20 + $5 a night for cable with the PPA discount. If you must stay there, do not expect the wifi to work or the cable to be adequate. Also, do not leave your sewer hose out after dumping as ours -(a $20 HD hose) was cut with a grass whipper in several places. We received no resolution from the mgr; Gorilla Tape to the rescue. I really don't like to give a campground a bad rating, as it can affect thier business adversely. But in fairness to future campers, a warning to beware before you go is in order. As with any business, it is important to give the customer value for their money and this campground is way overpriced for the inconvenience and grief. Camping at Fort Wilderness was not a pleasant experience. We camped there in a motorhome. - mcr101010

Surly manager who wanted to make it my fault that the electricity didn't work. The pool was disgusting and closed. Two days later it was cleaned up and open. But, not clean enough that you would want to get into it. It is convenient to the Casino - which makes it all the more expensive. But, whose fault is that?
Most of the residents are there for good, the units ill maintained, and the sites congested with stuff.
I would not stay there again. - The Penguin

-Check in- Ok, manager smokes inside of the office, if you have issues with smoke, be aware of this.
-After hours- Available.
-RV spots- Close together and the roads are tight. Spots are not very level and can be really muddy after a rain. There are a few good spots, but you have to hunt them down.
-Hookups- Full hookups, including basic cable.
-Wi-Fi- Wi-Fi is supposed to be available, but is completely unreliable. Don't count on it working.
-Bathhouse/Laundry-Disgusting and absolutely nasty bathrooms with built up hair and dirt everywhere, crawling with insects and spider webs in every nook and corner. The men's shower set up is weird with the shower head dangling from above. We didn't see it cleaned during our entire stay.
-Amenities- A pool, but its $4 a person, a day to use. There is a game room with a broken pool table and an old air hockey table that hasn't been used, or even turned on, in ages. Finally, a "civil war" cemetery which is actually just an old family plot with dates back to the years of the war.
-Kids- Kids are welcome, but we didn't see any other families during our stay. The playground isn't bad, but it is not what is featured on the website.
-Pets- Pets are welcome, but no dog park.
-Local area- A bright spot are places to see and things to do relatively close by the grounds. A 15 minute drive to Cherokee, Great Smoky Mountains, and Blue Ridge Parkway. There are also white water rafting businesses 10 minutes from the park as well as a few fast food restaurants.
-Staff- Owner is nice and helpful, but comes off a little creepy.
-Overall- Park is definitely not as advertised. I feel like we were bamboozled by the web site. The good mountain views along the edge of the park almost make it bearable. The park backed up to private property which includes a farm with long horned cows and horses but I would not recommend this park. We will not be coming back again. - D20Nomads

We stayed here for the month of May and had a great time. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The RV park is very well kept up and there is a lot of activities during the month. The owners are always doing improvements to the park, this year they put in solor heating for the pool. This is the best RV park in the area, and we hope to return some day to stay for the season. We would recommend Holly Cove RV park to everyone. - joanne hitch

We have friends that seasonal camp at this park, so we stayed here while visiting with them. The park is heavily treed and very hilly. The sites, however, are well maintained (gravel) and fairly level. The park has many long-term/seasonal units, as well as several park models. That said, it has a very pleasant and has a quality feel to it. There is a nice pool and a rec hall, where residents/guests meet for various activities. Water, electric and Wi-Fi seemed to be good quality and reliable. Not sure if we'd stay here if not for our friends, as it may not be ideally located and is a bit more hilly than we'd prefer. That said, however, it is a lovely setting and worth a visit. - P&R Miami

We pulled in about 5:00 to see if they had a site for us to stay in for the night. The owner said he only has long termers at his campground now. - kangmoe

A very nice shady spot along a creek/river. Lots of cabins onsite also. Roads were difficult to navigate for a big motorhome with a tow vehicle. We ended up having to unhook our tow when leaving as we could not navigate the steep, narrow, tight turn. We would not stay here again due to the tight roads. - happy wanderer

I traveled to several sites around Cherokee region (Yogi, KOA, etc...) and everything was extremely crowded due to trout fishing tourney. After traveling approximately 25 miles attempting to locate a campground, I figure I would take a stab at Craig's Campground. The manager was sitting on the front porch of the office and was extremely nice. He suggested a spot next to the creek with full hook-up and we set up camp. Before we left for Cherokee, asked him what time check-out was and he asked us what time we wanted to leave the next day and said not to worry nor hurry. Extremely nice people, facilities were not fancy, but they were very clean. - garyclarke324

An okay commercial park. Sites are close and interior roads are very narrow. Site was long and level and utilities satisfactory although sewer connection was at the very back of the site so needed extra long hose. Also, the sewer outlet was only covered by a rock, no proper covering. We chose here to go into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the location is very for that. We would stay again. - starwind

It was a nice clean park. Only complaint would be the permanent rv areas looked rough. - Wbd

We stayed for 5 nights as part of Memorial Day weekend. Great campground for families with kids. Good campground for anyone really. Lots to do at the campground with live music on weekends. Tons to do in the surrounding area. We will stay here again, we really like the Cherokee NC area. The only con I have about the campground is the internet ( or lack of ) , there is none. T they should really stop saying they have it. There are places around that do have it, if you need it bad enough. I found my Myfi wifi Verizon did not do well at all either. The Verizon phone service does work though. All in all a really good place to stay. - jturner9

Must call to make reservations. The website isn't really very good and doesn't have a map which makes it hard to select a site. The river sites are excellent and some of them could handle ~30' rigs. Cell reception was very poor. Bathrooms were mostly clean but very old. The staff was friendly during check in. Sites were mostly dirt, and the campground had lots of shade trees. They were not especially spacious but not too tight either. There are several other campgrounds in the Cherokee area and most of them are outdated and frankly didn't look safe. I would recommend this campground to someone staying in the area and highly recommend a river site. - zDale

The Raven Fork river is right at the edge of the park, with some camping from tents to motor homes available on the bank. The river and nearby waters are stocked with trout, and most places are "catch and keep". A Cherokee Indian fishing license ($10 for one day; $17 for two) is required. Most non-tent sites are on concrete. The park was comfortable when about 30% full. The spots, however, are very close together and a full park may feel crowded. The campground was well kept up with the exception of decrepit fire rings. WiFi is almost non-existent with slightly better reception near the office; even there, speed was in the 1-4 kps range (that's kilobytes per second, not megabytes) and useful only for collecting email. The campground is surrounded by hills; satellite TV is available only at a few sites. Camping is cash only. - Mtmoi
