Great convenient location relatively close to Mammoth Caves with outstanding and very friendly and service oriented owners. Would strongly recommend this RV park that offers a family like atmosphere. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff meet me outside with an umbrella to registrar. Escorted us to level site with full hookups. Wish we stayed on Friday to enjoy the bluegrass. After thunderstorm and lots of rain, walked dogs and was pleased with water drainage to pond. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This place is near the Mammoth Caves and courthouse were Johnny Cash and June Carter were married. Not to far from Nashville.

Wal-Mart 2 1/2 miles if you need to stockup

Planned on staying 4 nights...Stayed for 14! New owners are working hard to upgrade this park to a first-class RV campground. Needed work on our truck and owners offered assistance in getting groceries and mail if needed! Pool, individual bathrooms and pavilion were sparkling clean. Laundry equipment is on order for fall as it in need of updating. Full hookup sites are more than ample in length, level and excellent water and electric. Owners have minor issues to update but are aware and whittling down the list. Easy on/off and very quiet in spite of being close to two truck stops (no trains!) We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Truck stops both had food, Walmart is 2 1/2 miles away, Franklin and Bowling Green easy to reach via I-65 and 31W. Bluegrass and Honky-tonk music were most enjoyable!

We stayed there 1 night. The lot was easy to get to they escorted us to the site. They were playing blue grass music that night. It didn't bother us. We would stay there again. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed one night at Dad's. The spots are gravel and mostly level. The pull through spot we had was long enough that we didn't disconnect our tow vehicle. We met several people and will stay here again when we're in the Franklin area. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good Sam discount for one night. It was a gravel, pull-thru site with FHU and 50 amp. There was no park WiFI. There was good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. The owner is quite friendly and helpful. He recently purchased the park after it sat vacant for three years. It remains a work in progress. They had live bluegrass music on the night of our stay. The park was okay for a one night stay.

My wife and I stopped here on our way to, and from Mobile, AL and Pensacola, FL. I can't say enough about the friendliness and welcoming spirit that this campground's showed. This facility used to be called Bluegass RV Park...these are the new owners, and the Park is a work in progress. It is situated right off of I-65. When travelling south, I will use this RV Park as a rest way station again. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Motorhome.

The RV Park is adjacent to two truck stops, which is really convenient for re-fueling, and grabbing a bite to eat.

This is the same park listed as Franklin KOA. Sites are gravel and not very level. since we were there overnight I didn't want to unhitch. I couldn't get the rig level while hitched up. The site width is OK, but the gravel portion is narrow. Wi-Fi is poor. Could barely connect and performance was erratic; mostly poor. Manager knew this and said I could come to the office if necessary. Couldn't find the dumpster. It wasn't where the map showed it. Park could use some signs indicating path to exit, site numbers, etc. A little pricey for the quality of the park. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Quaint RV Park not far off of the Highway. We stopped here on the way to Memphis. We only stayed one night. Park could have used a little more attention to detail, T.L.C. Not bad for an overnight stay. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is PPA; otherwise the park is too expensive. Narrow grass/gravel/mud not level sites. We were lucky it was dry; wet weather would make setting up miserable. Park was clean and utilities worked. Lots of areas for dog walking. Internet was sketchy and slow. Would stay again (if weather dry) as long as PPA discount available. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were very glad it was dry, else it would have been a muddy mess. Many sites are big rig friendly, but few are level, and none have sufficient gravel. Same for the roads. They really aren't great for PA as you must see the staff during check in for discount and they state they are open only from 2PM to 6PM. After that it looks to be first come first come on the honor system. WiFi was poor - they say they will get a new repeater soon. No cable, as advertised, but few trees to interfere with a satellite dish. The park is for sale, so there may be big changes in the future. All restaurants, save Wendy's and Subway, are at a different exit. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Motorhome.

Did not read the review for this site before we stopped but definitely should have. We were extremely tired and simply wanted a place to pull in, eat, and sleep which is all I will recommend it for. The price is far too high at $37 and the sites are grass and mud and very close together. For an emergency stop or just can't go any further, this is your place. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Motorhome.

This CG is vastly overpriced. We checked in after hours and were greeted with a $37 rate. The sites were narrow, deeply rutted (makes it difficult to use levelers) and dirt when dry and mud when it rains. After looking around I now understand why they don't publish their rates. This should be your CG of last resort. Look elsewhere, for the money you deserve better. No way would we stay here again. We camped at Dad's Bluegrass Music RV Park in a Motorhome.
