Based on your suggestions, we camped at Happy Holiday and enjoyed our stay.
We backed right up to a stream and the sound was wonderful. We didn't use the bath house or pool, but all the property seemed well maintained. WiFi was slow or almost nonexistent, and we didn't have service on our phones (TMobile). I'm glad you suggested Happy Holiday. Although we didn't really tour other campgrounds, I think Happy Holiday is one of the best. The location is convenient. Thank you for helping us find a good campground!
We really enjoyed Rafter J although did get a surprise one night when the water was turned off while I was in the shower in our camper. It was end of Sept and they were afraid temp would drop and pipes freeze, We later learned a notification had been posted in the office or store. We just had not been in there, so got a quick surprise. Beautiful campground and convenient.
We've decided to take a quick trip to Cherokee. Called River Valley and since last minute couldn't get reservations but was assured they would have availability for full hook up when we get there. Have any of you stayed there or suggestions for other campgrounds? Really wanting to see "Unto these Hills". Thank you for your help.
