This is a great campground for families. There is a game room, a small fishing pond, Soco Creek and a nice pool and splash pad... the latter of which is perfect for little ones. The bath house we used smelled and looked clean. Try to get a spot with a concrete pad, just in case it rains. As someone who...

Booked again for next year! Enjoyed four days here, wished we would have stayed longer! Enjoyed floating and tubing in the creek each day. Kids enjoyed the pool, arcade, and riding bikes. Great entertainment activities, raffles, scavenger hunt, and games. Really enjoyed the time we spent as a family in the campground. Owner and staff were very friendly and helpful....

We camped for two nights in a travel trailer. We were right by the stream which sounded wonderful. There's also a lake on the property which was well maintained. Only negative WiFi was very weak, and our cell phones would not work. I know it's good to get away from all, but since I have elderly family members who are...

This a great campground. The grounds are kept up very nicely. There is plenty of room for the kids to play with a playground and swimming pool. There is a pond for the fisherman in addition to to two streams surrounding the campground. The both house are maintained and kept clean. There are events regularly during peak times with live...

We happened to score a campsite at Happy Holiday at the last minute after having to cancel our reservations at a different campground because the site was too small. We called Happy Holiday and they let us look at the site before hand and it was perfect! We were at site 34 which was on the creek on the backside...

I rented a cabin here with family. There was a total of 6 of us and we got the largest cabin, The Eagle. Although it was tight quarters, we managed to make it work. The cabin itself was very cute and rustic and right on the creek, storage space was tight, but we took advantage of every square foot of...

Every year we go to Gulf Shores, but this year we decided to go to the Smoky Mountains. We wanted to stay near the Smoky Mountains but not near the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, so we decided to stay in Cherokee North Carlonia just south of the Smokies. We LOVED the RV park and I am...

We stayed at the Happy Holiday Campground for 2 nights in our pop up camper. We had a creekside site, which was really nice...minus the highway traffic from the other side of the creek. Otherwise it was in a great location, staff was friendly and helpful, restrooms were very clean with hot showers and the pool liked nice, but we...

When we arrived it had been raining big puddles of water everywhere. All sites are on grass so there was also mud everywhere. Everything was sopping wet. Expensive for what we got. we asked for a 50 amp hookup. Kept blowing fuses and furnace wouldn't run due the the power. Asked camp rep about it and he said someone would...
