We rented a place coming from North Dakota to work at Cherokee Hospital for 13 weeks I am a registered nurse. We when to move in. The place was a health hazard, it smelled of cat urine. Very dirty, falling a part. We lost our monthly rent and deposit. Would NEVER recommend the place. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was probably a nice camp ground once upon a time. It is run down. Stayed here back in the Fall. Only had 1 bath house open and it was always nasty and very out dated. I had to call to complain on day 2 before the bathhouse was cleaned by one of the full time residents. She spent hours cleaning a small bathhouse, that tells you how nasty it was. It has 90% full time run down trailers (especially up on the hill). Also it was common to see a 'lot lizard' walking around late evening and early next AM. No one was ever in the office. They call you before you arrive and instruct you to call a lady who drives over to meet you, check you in and then is gone. Would never stay there.

Stay away from this park. Rude and obnoxious manager. Electric is totally danger to your rv. (95v)Lots are dirty and hard to get in.

Campground Response

Stay away from this horrible camper. He was the worst complainer we ever had. He complained and complained and complained I told him to leave and everyone on the campground was so happy he left especially me

If I could give a 0 I would. This is our 1st family RV road trip and we rented a spot for the 4th of July. When we arrived my husband went to check in and they gave him a different site # then what I reserved on Reserve America. I walked in to speak with Manager and the lady at the desk said she was the Owner. I informed her that this was not the site we selected. Her response was, you just reserved today and the person on the site you selected has been there for a week. Do you think I would move them for your 1 night stay. I was shocked that the owner would speak to a customer like this especially since this is a valid question. I told her that I reserved a few days ago and she said her system and Reserve America system do not always communicate well. I informed her we had small children and the reason I selected that specific site was it was near bathroom and pool. She said if I didn't like it she would refund me and I could go elsewhere. I said I couldn't risk it since it was the 4th of July. The site was not clean, has tree debris all over the place. After staying at several KOA locations I would never suggest a place like this.

Campground Response

I apologize for the inconvience of having to move to another site. We try to accommodate our guests but sometimes we are unable to and always try to find a solution and we did for this very nasty aggressive guest. We put her next to the site she wanted and her kids had a fun and happy day. I was ready to call the police because of her behavior. July 4th weekend is always crazy as campers know. We do invite you back again on a less than busy day such as July 4th.
