  • Our 5 year old had a blast here! We were in town in August, and spent the morning here. Definitely glad we were there in the morning and not the afternoon - the sun would have been too hot. We stayed ...  more »

  • August 2008- my family went to Santa's Land. I & mom was first time there. That's amazing place park, animals, eat, games and gift store. Enjoy all day spend time pf ride train, roller coaster, ferries wheel, games, eat lunch, see animals, magic show and gift shop. Wow great time. 👍💜
  • Went on Saturday didn't know it was supposed to be opening day...$24 each to get in not a Problem...Problem #1 you can pay with a credit card to get in but they do not except credit card at the concession stand come on its 2017... Problem #2 my son and I rode the carousel as soon as we got off the rode I noticed we both had oil all over our pants told the old man and younger man there all they said was I'm sorry no one cleaned the oil off the horses... Problem #3 half the helicopter rides didn't go up do I little maintenance on all of the rides... Problem #4 The Rudicoaster was down for repairs again it's opening day this was the reason we came...Problem #5 many of the farm animals cages were empty...the only fun thing was the paddle board and letting my daughter drive them...very disappointed and doubt we will ever go back
  • It is fun for the younger crowd not very crowded which is good, but that means that not all the rides are in use. The animals are fun, but they are in crampt cages.
  • We were there this past Friday You couldn't use credit cards Get old but dirty and refurb is greatly needed Way too much $$$$ for what you don't get Save your money drive a little further and go to pigeon forge
  • My wife loved the animals, the kids enjoyed the rides. Everyone wins at Santa Land!

Where to stay in Cherokee

Cherokee has no shortage of hotels, motels, and inns. Accommodations range from basic and affordable to lavish and extremely expensive. A towering casino downtown offers many rooms, but rustic cabins and cottages are more characteristic of the area. These places offer mountain views as well as fully equipped kitchens and in-room fireplaces and hot tubs. If you wish to explore the Great Smoky Mountains on your own terms, consider one of the area's campgrounds. Most are full-service, featuring both trailer and tent sites as well as hot showers, electric hookups, and on-site grocery stores.
