Very pretty but not level

This park is very pretty. The people camping here were very nice. Bathrooms are clean. The sites are notoriously NOT level. We had to move because we could not get level. Ended up in a site that faced the street (which was vey busy). A lot of the sites are very private and some have water views. …

Great stay

Stayed here during off season so was very quiet, but can only imagine how great it would be in the peak season. The lake is absolutely beautiful and they have some lovely tent sites right on the water. We went kayaking and would definitely have swam if it was warmer! so many nice hiking trails and…

Great and free

We got a spot right on the lake. It was nice and quiet. The view was great for watching the sunset. I think there was a pit toilet but we didn’t check it out. We only spent one night here but it was great. I totally recommend this and I’d definitely go back, hopefully for longer next time.

Great Camping!

Very wooded camping & windy at times but we love it. The road is winding & navigating through the campground with a large rv (ours is a 38 ft 5th wheel) could be challenging to some but is doable. Super clean & very friendly staff. BYOI, bring your own internet if you want good wifi.…

Peaceful campground

We stayed here for Fall Leaves in the Smoky Mountains in our van. It’s a basic campground. It has bathrooms with running water. No showers. No cell signal whatsoever. The sites aren’t private, which didn’t bother us. There’s a dump and fill station for RVs. Like I said, basic. But well situated. It…

Campground on the road

Campsites are very close to the road but the river is across the road. People do fly down the road. Make sure your kids and dogs are safe. Great fishing. Bathrooms available. 1 or 2 bars Verizon.

Great Family Campground

Campground right on the Hiawassee River. Fish, swim, float or sit by the campfire. Great place.

This was a neat campground right on a stream. We stayed a little cabin just big enough for 2. There was mostly no traffic but the sites are right on the street and school buses and work trucks would ride by.

Quiet and Convenient

Nice campground convenient to the casino in Cherokee. Sites are fairly level and well-spaced. We had a site right on the fishing pond which was nice. Staff were not over friendly but not rude.

Our Favorite!

This is in our top 5 campgrounds to visit! We have stayed here multiple times both in RV sites and in the cabins. The staff is super friendly and helpful. River sites stay booked so plan ahead if you want one of those. We enjoy the swimming hole but beware, the water stays COLD even in the…

My site was the closest to the entrance so there was a lot of traffic throughout the night. However, on the other side there was a beautiful creek which was wonderful to hear in the morning as I drove out. I have the annual parks pass & unfortunately didn’t get the discount when I checked in…
