Park is in great shape. Roads and sites are newly asphalted, bathhouse and pavilions are beautiful and clean and this list of ranger programs are impressive. That said park has no access to Cherokee Lake but do have a small creek that runs thru the west end of campground and a community witj playground and pool less than half a mile from camp, but pool closes at 6 And not open on Monday or Tuesday. Sights on the north west side outer edge of the loop would be my pick if we come back. Tall trees and slope of the mountain give these sites shade late afternoon and evening. But even with temp almost 90 yesterday by 9 it was 76 with a cool wind blowning. Sights from the over look are great and the trails we have been down so far have been well maintained.
