Very nice level lots with concrete pads and very up to date utilities. This was a very child friendly campground that is clean and very well maintained. - Mountaineer fan

Came here on a recommendation for fishing with my adult son. It's a nice campground and the staff was very nice, polite, and helpful. Our site was a "back-in"near one of the fishing ponds and we had ample room for our 25 ft. Sprinter rig but my son had to park across our pad in order to stay off the road. Wi-Fi was non-existent at our site and Verizon cell phone reception was minimal at best. I only used electric, which served us well, so I can't comment on the other utilities.
The nearby bath house (we were at Site 47) appeared clean but needed a staffer to keep soap dispensers refilled and to unstoppable a sink.
There appeared to be construction/maintenance work going on so the owner's do want to keep the place in good order. It was really cold and windy during our stay but we will be back.
Also, the rate includes a $3.50/ night resort fee. - KC8RXQ

This KOA is located on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the North Carolina side. The park is surrounded by a stream and campsites have great shade with wonderful trees. Our site was a pull-through concrete pad. It was very long and easily accommodated our 38 ft. 5th wheel plus our truck. The pad was very level and the utilities were very accessible. The sites that are along the stream are back in but appear to be level and have good distance from other campers. The staff was very accommodating and worked with us to adjust our reservation without additional charges. The only negative relates to cell phone service. There is no ATT signal available, but that's not the campground's fault. We relied on WiFi, which was strong while we were there. - The Regans

Stayed three nights and rested well each night as everyone seemed to adhere to the quiet time guidelines. Restrooms were a little dated but clean and orderly. Originally, reservations were screwed up at least three times by office personnel who either lacked sufficient training or just were careless. The office managers finally straightened everything up and check in went smooth, just be sure to request a confirmation email and a follow up verbal confirmation several days prior to arrival. Cell service is very weak here, best of luck with calls. Wi Fi was a joke, never connected in the three days here. Excuse was it was just overloaded. Newsflash...maybe its time to upgrade the service, if you advertise WiFi it should be expected to work. We, never the less, had fun in the Cherokee area and met many "interesting" fellow campers. We will return again in the future. - Dickmann05

We were there through Memorial Day weekend and on through the bluegrass festival, the following weekend. We have been there for many years and it's one of our favourite places to go. Even though the wifi is non existent on busy weeks and the cable is just fair on the best days. The management and 'some' of the workers need some hospitality training, some not friendly at all. One worker who was living near some friends who were playing music on Saturday night of the festival, angrily approached them and cursed them for playing music. The event escalated and he threatened to pull the power plug to their camper. Very unprofessional! My friends will not be back. Most irritating is their reservation policy, they do not allow you a grace period to reserve your same site from year to year. In other words your site can be taken from you. - 5thwheel1949

The "manager" lied to me and others, stating that a festival promoter was responsible for disallowing year-over-year customers from camping near friends. He cursed at me when his lie was exposed. This arbitrary and unreasonable policy (not practiced by any other festival camp ground we attend) ruins the event, so we will not be returning. We will not be returning while this "management" is in place.
The sites were somewhat cramped. Full hookups are not available in all sites. Navigation roads are narrow but passable. Bath house facilities are some of the cleanest we have found. The convenience store has basic camping supplies and snack food. However, all of these positives are negated by the disrespectful attitude of the "managers". - User1917

We love this place!! As we were traveling around visiting several locations in NC and TN we didn't bring our RV this time. We rented a cabin, #49 which is a pet friendly cabin that sleeps 4. We did not have a pet but it was so clean, we could not tell there had been any pets staying prior to our visit. Cool, shaded, great little campground. Staff very friendly. - Jerrilyn

Indian Creek was a bit of a drive but well worth it. Bath house appeared to be cleaned multiple times each day. Sites were gravel and level and all utilities worked as expected with the exception of a very weak WiFi signal. Compared with other private campgrounds sites were nicely spaced. - Dave F

Pretty little campground. Nicest site are on the creek. FHU sites aren't on the creek. Owners very nice and very helpful. If you need internet or cell phone reception look elsewhere. There is absolutely no cell phone reception. The internet service provided by the campground was spotty at best. Often it was completely unavailable. sometimes you could get your email very slow but forget about going to any other internet sites. - Mushmouth

Beautiful setting, adequate space for our 36ft 5th. Long winding paved road to campsite. Friendly staff. No Cell service. Not the fault of the campsite. Good cable. Satellite not an option because of trees.
My main problem was lack of WiFi. Being full timers we depend on internet. When the park was empty, WiFi was horrible. When the park was full it was non existent. - roybrody

The staff here were very very friendly although check in was slow. We had read internet was slow so asked for a site closest to the internet hot spot and we had very good WiFi where we were placed. Restrooms were generally very clean. Stayed here for 2 nights and there was enough to keep the three kids happy. Color a t-shirt for $8.50, movies each night, candy bingo, pedal karts to hire. Right near very pretty river. Just don't bother walking the Mango Falls track. Bugs, bad trail so could twist ankle, unsafe area to walk through in one patch, nothing to see when you get there. I'd stay again especially with a Passport America discount. - kiwitravelers

Getting to, and into this park is a challenge. Big Cove rd is narrow & in bad shape in places with the road bank falling into the river in several locations. The road into the park has those suspension shattering high plastic speed bumps. I wouldn't take my camper in there again even if the camping was free. - Thorfinn

Reservations are required. The road to the campground includes a narrow, steep, winding and exposed section of a couple of miles of gravel road over a mountain. Large RVs and large trailers might find it difficult. There is no electricity, water, or sewer hookups at the sites. There are flush toilets and cold water sinks but no showers. The sites in the center of the loop have little privacy. The sites on the outside of the loop have somewhat more privacy. The campground is along side Cattaloochee Creek. - Teardrop11

This campground has become very popular in recent years due to the elk herd in the nearby fields. This campground does not have a dump station or shower house. It does have a small bathroom facility with flush toilets and a small sink to dump gray water. There are a few potable water spigots located throughout the campground. - Lance-a-Lot

The price noted is the monthly rate. This is not an overnight-stay campground: only 6-month seasonal or year round. It is an adult only campground, although children are allowed for short visits. We first found this park in 2008; advertised as seasonal only, which greatly appealed to us. We started staying here part time from May-October 2009 and would rate the park a 9 for that year. The following year (2010) gets a rating of 8. Our final year here (2011) was not as enjoyable as there was a lot of tension in the air and new unwritten rules. This year’s rating is 2. As soon as we showed up in May, we could see the signs that the park was moving away from being an RV park and moving towards full-time trailer park living. Needless to say, we were not happy about that, and as it turns out, other campers are quite concerned as well. Several decisions made by management this summer reinforce the direction of the “RV Park” moving to a “trailer park” environment. For example, campers are now allowed to have permanent building sheds, remove portions of the fencing along the street, and erect canopies to extend their living space. Some of the sites resembled a tent city with all the add-ons going on in their site. The sites are VERY close to each other; one open awning almost extends to the next unit. Generally, this is not an issue, but there are some owners who insist on leaving their dogs alone in the unit to bark and yap the entire time they are away. As others have said, the noise from the street is very heavy during the day; however, traffic noise really calms down around sunset. The town of Maggie Valley is no longer attractive to families as most venues geared toward them have closed (many before the economy went south). With people living so close together comes a lot of DRAMA. From almost every site you can see and sometimes hear what is going on in the rest of the campground. The park manager adds to a lot of the drama. Enough said. The bathrooms are very clean as are the common areas in the clubhouse. My low rating of 2 for 2011 in no way reflects uncleanliness. This year, the park owner seemed detached from his investment even though he lives on the premises. A couple times this summer, we practically had to beg to have the grass mowed. Outside maintenance around the park has dramatically changed from our first year here. The park is in the heart of the town and within walking distance to several restaurants and shops; this is a big plus. Concrete patios are available at some sites because current or previous owners purchased them. We bought ours the first year here and it was well worth it. The park puts on a July 4 cookout; it is not only a good way to get to know your neighbors, but the food is fantastic. Another feast not to be missed is the annual fish fry. The park buys the fish and one of the campers spends all day cooking the fish and hushpuppies. Everyone else brings a dish. If you're looking for a seasonal spot with lots of activities, this is not the place, as it is a small park. We didn't need scheduled activities but some people may want that. In good conscience, I could not recommend this campground to a friend, but you make up your own mind. - CraftCrazy

Very nice campground. Like the others that have posted have said, the road noise is annoying during the day if you hang around the campground. Bathrooms and clothes washing facilities are very clean and rated a 10. Sites are a little close but is an excellent location for your base of operations while touring the area. The camp host is very friendly and helpful. - yelir49

I completely agree with the post from May 2006. I would give this campground a 10 but there is some road noise. It is very quiet at night, though. The wireless internet was strong and fast. The owners and camp host were very friendly and eager to answer questions about the area. They handed out a welcome package with brochures on the area when we checked in. Our site was roomy but next to the street with the picnic table next to the sidewalk. Some of the other spaces looked close together with slides out but it looked this way in all of the other campgrounds in the area too. The laundry was very clean and moderately priced. We would definitely stay here again. - tms7677

Large campground, paved roads, high speed bumps. Sites are close to each other. Level sites, full hook-ups. Minimal wi-fi available. Bath houses are quite dated. Showers and toilets stalls are on the small side. Looked like quite a few long term campers, with decks and gardens. - Wayne67vert

We have stayed there a number of times. The is park is beautiful but it was designed prior to the time when the RVs had slide outs and many of the sites are very narrow with little shade. The owners are very understanding and helpful. One of the very few parks I have ever stayed in that provides a handicapped stalls in the restroom. - Jim 2

Campground is located next to the main highway in Maggie Valley, yet not a lot of noise especially at night. The park is mostly clean and workers were always busy taking care of the grounds during our stay. The sites are very tight, as in awning extending to to next site. Most of the sites are pull thru except those along the creek. However, the odd/even site arrangement has your door opening into your neighbors door. With the sites being so tight, If you don't know your neighbor before arriving, you will before you leave. Sites are gravel/grass and are mostly flat. They offer 50 amp service along with basic cable receiving about 50 channels. Water pressure is good. The laundry was clean and machines all appear in operating condition. The pool is small but clean. The campground does offer wifi for a fee. The bath houses were old and dated but clean. AT&T/4G/LTE service was good. The park is very pet friendly and everyone kept them in line. The campground is about 50% seasonal sites. The seasonal sites are not kept in one section but located throughout the park. Some were "junky" looking which gives the overall appearance of the same to the park. What did not help was the overflowing trash dumpsters which smelled. It wasn't one dumpster, it was all of them. It appears the owners are too cheap to have the trash collected more than once per week. - dtaylor

My wife and I stayed at Creekwood Farm for 5 days over the July 4 weekend.
This is not a bad campground. My wife and I much prefer national parks and state run campgrounds because they typically have more room. But we don't mind staying occasionally at private campgrounds. Creekwood is a very prime example of why we have problems with private campgrounds. If we had been given the option to not be in the middle of the party all day on Saturday and also have to not have traffic through our campsite the entire weekend it might have been more pleasant.
When I called and made the appointment I asked for a creek side site. The lady said they had one creek side site left and I reserved it. Nothing but a blatant lie. The site they gave us was site number 75. It IS NOT on the creek even though their VERY misleading site map shows it on the creek. Not only that, #75 is not a premium site. It is smaller and the utilities are misplaced toward the front so I couldn't back the motor home into the site so I had room for the toad.
So this "premium" side it nestled in between the last REAL premium site and one of their permanent cabins. Right behind side 75 and the cabin is their recreation area. They had a big cookout on Saturday. That was cool, but when I arrived I found a hose hooked up to our water spigot. It ran out the end of the site. I figured they were using it to water the grass so I unhooked it and did my hookups. The next morning someone had installed a "Y" and hooked that hose back up. We had to compete with their party for water pressure. And guess where everyone in the campground walked, or drove their golf carts, through to get to the picnic? Yes, site #75. And not a word about any of this when I made reservations. We were totally misled. And they didn't mention that you had to rent a fire pit if you wanted a campfire. How ridiculous!!!

Wonderful, quiet. Great staff. Loved site. Baths are wonderful, private.
Was good for overnight. If we had known how wonderful this campground was, would have planned to stay longer. It is wonderful, quiet, lovely.
Will be back. - ToniB

Overall a nice campground about a mile off Interstate 40. Easy entrance and exit. The place had a friendly vibe - mostly adults and pretty social. They advertise pull-through sites - which are actually two sites back to back. They are only pull through if no one is in the other site otherwise you have to back in. What is really strange is the placement utilities. In almost every situation - if all spaces are full - your door will be about 5 feet from your neighbor's sewer connection. Not an issue when we were there but the spaces by our door was vacant the whole time. I am generally a "rules" person but there seemed to be an overwhelming number of rules and posted signs with rules. Not a problem but just different. Nice stream runs through the back of the property. There is a wood/tree processing facility across the street - in the early hours you can definitely hear the plant. Not a big deal but not exactly peaceful either. I would stay here again - it is about 5-7 miles to any number of restaurants or stores. Office people were helpful. After we were there for 3 days they decided we were not far enough forward in our pull-through space - so we had to disconnect, take in slides etc and move 10 feet forward. We were apparently using the wrong sewer connection. Kind of a pain as we ere leaving first thing the next morning. All in all - we would sty here again. - Zoey and Reba

I've been coming here every October since 1998 when it was under the old name Fox Den - this place is & has always been GREAT! Nothing fancy - no arcade for the kiddies or fancy amenities, but the owner & his son couldn't be nicer or more fun to be around. There's usually a couple people who come & go and they're always nice, too. It's close to everything! Yet far enough away from it all to truly relax and enjoy. You can choose between 4 hiking trails (1 to a waterfall & 2 to the A.T.) without even having to drive! The sites are level, the bathrooms are clean, the firewood is dry, plus they sell ice and just about everything else you may need and then some. If you're more interested in your TV reception than being at one with nature, you may want the KOA closer to Gatlinburg, but if you want to sit by the stream, enjoy the forest, stargaze, hear your campfire crackle, or go "jaw with the fellers" in the general store, this is the place to be! - SilverJ

Previous posts giving this place a 9 must have been made by the owner’s mother and grandmother. It’s nowhere close to being a 9. Gravel interior roads and grassy sites. Hookups are adequate. I checked them out and would not use the laundry or bath/shower. I don’t have kids and I am in the area to explore, thus I’m gone early and return in time to cook dinner. Posh parks with lots of amenities are wasted on me. This place with its lower cost serves my purpose. Staff is very helpful and Wi-Fi is good. Convenient to I-40 and Gatlinburg without being in the midst of the chaos. I would stay here again under the same circumstances. - plove

This is a delightful small park - very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed nearby places and ate at the Apple House. YUM! YUM! We will certainly stop by Cosby Ranch if in the area. It is easy to find on State Route 32. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth the effort. - john rv
