Very nice park close (about 30 miles) to Nashville. One of the few low cost options when visiting Nashville. There are three bath houses. One was somewhat small (and I think older) but all three were very clean. Water flow was low but acceptable. Park rangers came by often and were very friendly. This keeps the "un-desirables" out of the park. I think local home school children used the play ground in the afternoon. The cross country running team was running when we were there. They were VERY well behaved and created no problem. The site #17 was long enough for us to back in, but a number of the sites could be somewhat difficult to get into with the trees and we would have had a problem if the site across the road from us was in use. There were a large number of big rigs at the sites with sewer connections. Sewer at some sites for extra $. Dump station, but no fresh water at dump station to fill up. Only "dirty" water to wash down spills. As with all TN state parks, only approved (fire dried) fire wood is allowed. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were really impressed by the beauty of the park - just awesome. The sites were nice, although the picnic tables could use a little TLC. The restroom/shower facilities do not have AC, so there was evidence of mold/mildew and both the shower and toilet facilities were not up to current standards. We were only able to stay one night. We would like to return and be able to really explore the park. Good spot to come in the spring or fall. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a creekfront site. We knew ahead of time the sites would be close together, so it wasn't a surprise. Level lot. Poorly position campfire ring. We didn't use the bathrooms but they were buggy and needing updating. Playground equipment out of date and all aluminum which isn't ideal in Summer. It's a good place to go that is an hour from Nashville, so we'll be back in the fall for a short trip. Strangely, there were a large number of flies. We've been camping throughout middle Tennessee and haven't encountered as many as we did here. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We loved this park! We went to the website ahead of time and chose our spot based on the map, site dimensions/description and photos. Loved that they had photos...really helped us select the perfect site. We reserved ahead an paid just under $41 total, including day use fees. There campground has lots of trees/shade (not satellite friendly), a river, is easy to navigate, beautiful scenery, clean restrooms, and the campsites were incredibly wide/large with plenty of space cushion around so we weren't on top of our neighbors. Our site had hookups and was hard packed gravel/dirt. The park was fairly crowded on June 1, and the ranger came along that morning around checkout time to make sure we were vacating our space so they could ensure the next person wouldn't find us still there. Fair enough. We had a premium spot on the river, but it was more for ambiance as the flow was practically nill, so the river was a bit sketchy looking. We had our dogs on 15 - 20 foot leads and they enjoyed plenty of room on our site without encroaching on neighbors sites. The other campers we met were friendly. Lots of kiddos riding bikes and having fun, and we didn't encounter loud, obnoxious campers at night. I would definitely recommend this beautiful park and would not hesitate to stay here again...only wish we'd had more time here to chill and enjoy the nice weather (June 1). We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 3 nights at the park. It was clean and everybody was very nice, although there was no attendant so there was nowhere to buy firewood. It was less than an hour to Nashville and also less than an hour to Franklin, which is a cute little town!

There was a large field for our dogs to run in, we were able to let them do so because there were few people there at the end of December. My folks came in a big rig, and they were unable to access the back spots, but a friendly Ranger came by and let us all upgrade to a full hook-up spot and waived the $5 upgrade fee. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very helpful staff, great park, beautifully maintained. Saw deer, wild turkey and other critters driving though the park. Was a little hard to find the actual campground. The Inn at the park serves good food, buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner for a reasonable price. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The space they assigned us was horrible to back in. The park was nice and the grounds were beautiful. The staff really needs to evaluate the spaces they assign. I had to jump my front tires over 6 X 6s in order to back in the space. Lots of people at the park during our stay. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Just an overnight stay, second time in the last year. The campground is clean and seems well maintained. The one bathroom I checked out was clean and orderly. The roads in the campground are quite narrow and twisty. The sites ate quite close together and the trees don't appear to have been trimmed. We woke to something falling on the roof and found, next morning, two large limbs had hit us.

My one negative is the price: $20 for electric and $30 for full service in a state park with no amenities is darned pricey. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.

Very crowded with very little room to back in or pull out. Cars parked everywhere. Was a foot off level from front to back. I saw pets but have no idea on their policy. I noticed trash around the park. It was a holiday weekend but I expected better.

I would stay in a parking lot with no water and electricity to keep away from this place. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, very friendly staff. Not big rig friendly. VERY narrow roads, tight turns, trees close to road and most sites. We got lucky to find an end site with a lot of room to pull up. Still dragged on tree limbs on the side/roof. Would stay again because it's too tight for our 38' 5th wheel. To bad, it's a pretty park with a nice creek running behind.

Asphalt roads inside the RV park, which are very tight and tree lined. Good amount of shade. No check in was required with a call ahead reservations. No guns or alcohol allowed in the park. Restrooms are aged, but were clean. Trash cans located on most sites with pick up daily. Ice, fire wood and etc. at the store. Most sites have elec., but few sites have sewer. Our site #32 (back-in, asphalt parking, no sewer) was just barely long enough for our 37' 5er to fit, was sloped required leveling blocks, but most sites appeared to be reasonably level. Great fall colors and it was fun to experience the falling leaves through the day. Great hikes for the grandkids. Don't miss visiting this state park. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

First off, this is a very pretty State Park. But the campground is too cramped, crowded and smashed together. Maybe if you came here mid week you'd love it. But on a weekend? You and your neighbors will get to know each other far too well. The weekend we were there it was packed and unpleasant. This also made the bathrooms crowded and dirty.

We may be pickier than others that love this place - but it just a 6 on our scale of CG acceptability. We camped at Montgomery Bell State Park in a Motorhome.
