There are very few campgrounds for 'Nashville', and while this is north of Nashville, it is very convenient being right off the interstate. One exit up there are large grocery stores and many restaurants. Sites were a little tight, but level and some were shaded. Every site had a patio with picnic table. Staff is VERY friendly here. The store is well equipped. We will camp here again.

This isn't a campground, but a vendor RV parking for the fairgrounds. If there isn't an event, the lot is fairly empty. It's first come first serve and good for just staying over night, which was all we needed for our visit. Even though in the city, we felt safe and it was quiet except for racing at the track on the grounds on Sunday afternoon. We would stay here again.
Date of Stay: November, 2011
Agree with prior reviews about not much more than a parking lot, but after looking at other local campgrounds, this would still be our choice because of location and the concrete sites. Wi-Fi was great until our last day. We came here with intent on sight seeing and some gambling and it served our purpose well. It is not a 'sit out and enjoy' campground, but we were not here that much. Area has much history and good restaurants to enjoy. Even Ameristar casino was fun, except for the smoke. Staff was friendly, but park is definitely a pass through one night place for many. It fills up at night and emptys out next day.

Quite out of the way, perfect for a weekend to spend or go rafting in the area. The owner, will work with you on late checkouts, etc so you can get back from rafting before going home. Our site was level, shaded. There isn't much room between sites, but room behind to sit on the banks overlooking the river. There is even a boat doc and extra parking for boats. We had decent Verizon service.

We were pleased with the ease of accessibility to this camp and the level sites. It is an older park, and many of the sites do not have sewer, but they have two flush-out spots. The hiking was great and the area in general was beautiful. It's very family friendly with lots of young families riding bikes throughout the campground. We had good cell service and local TV reception.

Older park, but well kept and the view of lake was good. Not all of the sites allowed for bigger rigs (ours is 35 foot), but we found many that we could get into. Some sites have utilities on the wrong side. They don't reserve by site and not all have sewer. Didn't get to try any of the trails (it was raining), but the walk on the drive through the campground was nice. Cell phone service was practically non-existent.
Date of Stay: February, 2010
There are some permanent campers here but they keep the area presentable. The sites are just grass, but some are quite roomy. In February, when we went, we felt like we had the whole campground to ourselves. Has areas to walk and explore and a nice playground for kids. Fishing is available in lake with a license. Cell service was good.

The newly upgraded section of the park is wonderful. The sites are level (gravel) and have patios. There are some concrete sites for physically challenged. Can drive (or bike) to beach where there is bathhouse available. Cell service was good.

This upgraded state park is absolutely beautiful. Backin sites are level (gravel), pull throughs are asphalt. Hiking is great. Cell service is good.

We didn't use the pool, but saw that it was very clean and heated. The bathhouse by the tent camping was nice, new and clean. There are a lot of permanent campers, but their sites are neat and manicured with gardens. The 'saloon' is family friendly with meals available. The owner and staff were very nice and accommodating. The grounds/sites were grassy and kept well and fairly level. They were separate from the horse camping, although it was nice to see the horse campers and their animals. We enjoyed our stay.
