And I would suggest that you leave the back country camping to the experts and plan your camping trip for one of the long established camp grounds with all the luxuries of home like the KOA Camp Ground in Cherokee North Carolina on Big Cove Road. There you will find a movie theater , swimming pools , cook outs and trout fishing ponds that your whole entire family can enjoy.

And while your in Cherokee North Carolina be sure that you visit the Cherokee Indian Museum and try your best to attend the outdoor drama , Unto These Hills. And if you drive and look around the little city of Cherokee you will find live Indian Dances and all kinds of other attractions that could keep you entertained for days. And don't miss all the little shops and the great shopping you will discover there.And what ever you do don't miss Santa's Land Amusement Park right in Cherokee N.C.
