Stayed 1 night driving West on I-40 with a 40ft RV with jeep tow. 50 amp was availiable per the attendee if he ran a power cord to our site. Unsure of amperage of other sites. We just bared down and used 30 amp. Was only for overnight stay.
The navigation of the very tight rv park roads leaving, was our only reason why we would not use again. Friendly people and nice shady, quiet park. - CJ Jay

First and foremost, this is a work camp. Mostly long term residents. The owner does keep a few spots for overnighters. Best to call and check. Don't assume. Owner lives on site. He was very conscientious opening the office for us when we came in a little late. He made sure we were situated and comfortable.
There are two virtually new washers and dryers. Clean, quick and effective for a good price. - CharlieB

This was our 2nd stay at Tanbark. We like it because it's convenient, clean, and comfortable. We arrived late and left early. We needed a place to rest and this filled the bill. It did exactly want we needed it to do. Very good service. The park has expanded. The dog walk area which used to be an open field is well mowed. - db1112

We stayed on a monthly rate for 2 months. Pool was clean, staff friendly, park was quiet. Close to shopping, restaurants and gas. Sites are a bit narrow for units with slide outs but was workable. Would stay here again and probably will next year. - lnpdavis

Un-level sites and dirty bathrooms, no toilet paper. The park is really for permanent residents. If we had not been tired we would have moved on. - PWer

This was a terrible park and I would not stay there if it was free. There were numerous abandoned trailers. Sites were terrible. - johnmack

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. - PeteandDeb

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. - BaldGuy

The park was great for family with children. Parks large baseball, and field for all types of games. A stream that kids could play in. No WiFi nor cable. - Chicabunny

It's the most quite and peaceful place we've ever been to. We have enjoyed the river water greatly! It's hard to explain but once you get there you simply relax. The owner is a really great guy. He usually has only one spot that he can give you if you're staying for only few days. You'll need to book many months in advance if you want to stay for few months.
Its one of these places that you can overlook or miss, it's not a usual campground, there are only few spots for RVs but it is magical.
Laundry was free. We didn't use the bathrooms or shower so we can't say much about it. The Piney river runs through the campground and is great to swim in. The kids that were around loved it.
It had a Wi-Fi connection but very slow. - MikeMayNaama

This is a wonderful small family oriented campground located on the bank of the Piney River on a family farm. There are a couple of pavilions adjacent to RV sites that generally are rented full time. There is one rest room and one shower available, the laundry facilities are located across the road. It is a Good Sam park, so discounts apply. Occasionally, the owner hosts blue grass/country music "jams" at the park, usually with some local up and coming talent. Our stay was during one of these and we had a great time. Swimming, floating, and canoeing the Piney River is great fun for the young, so everyone will have a good time. COME! - GoinPlaces

Loretta Lynn's Ranch would be a great destination if all the advertised activities were actually offered. The campground is lovely, hilly and deeply shaded. It's about 2 miles down a steep hill from the campground to Western Town where the attractions are, not a comfortable walking distance in the summer heat. We didn't bring a tow vehicle and were counting on the advertised golf cart rentals to get around, but there are no carts. So we had to unplug our RV and drive down each day. A large camp store is on site, but it was not open Monday-Wednesday. The store hours are not posted so I don't know if that was normal or if the clerk just didn't show up for work. Campsites are open reservations, drive in and pick your spot. That's usually not an issue, except that when we vacated each morning to drive to Western Town we had to leave behind a pile of chairs to save our campsite. Hurricane Creek winds through the property and we were looking forward to a tube or canoe float, as advertised. But like the golf cart rental, none of these things were available. Making matters worse, the large inviting pool was padlocked shut during the week, although we saw swimmers when we pulled in Sunday night. While the campground was neat and tidy, the bath house was not so nice. Graffiti-filled walls, shabby showers, and broken air conditioning. The game room was a collection of out-of-order arcade machines. Even the two soda machines outside weren't working. We did enjoy the live music every night at the campground, and that gave us something to do in the evening as there are no over-the-air TV channels here. The Ranch's big signature event, amateur motor cross racing, is scheduled for early August. Maybe all the staff were busy prepping for that instead of taking care of the campground. Despite the disappointments, we had a good time at Loretta Lynn's Ranch and I'd consider returning when all the amenities are up and running. - Flying Mantis

Really nice park, but might not be for all rigs depending on occupancy rate. Sites are full hookup and reasonably spaced and paved (one section gravel) but some of the sites are less than level for some rigs. Really enjoyed the tours of Loretta Lynn's facilities and listening to her music. Park is woodsy but we got satellite OK. Phone service is really minimal, and no camp wi-fi. Our Verizon wi-fi was really weak, but that is not the campground's fault. They do not reserve by specific site so you can choose from the available ones that would fit your rig. - Grumpier99

Nice park for a destination, but an excellent value for early in the week overnight stop.
Clean, good facilities. Don't know what it would be like during a crowded season. Facilities might be stressed.
Will always stop here when traveling on I-40.
Very easy drive a few miles from I-40 to the park. - PawPaw

I have stayed at about 200 CGs in the last 4 years, and I think this is the best CG ever. COE CGs are usually great, and this one was the best so far. Along the Cumberland River Cheatham Lake, Lock A, there is a 2 mile paved road with spaced trees, many with labels of kind, many concrete picnic tables, at least 3 boat ramps, the dam, locks, and power house, 3 playgrounds, well mowed grass verges. The sites are widely separated mostly and paved for RVs, with some large well graveled tent sites along the river bank. A second RV row is back from the river side sites but some are not real level. Bath houses very clean. Cost was $11.50/nite with America the Beautiful Senior card. The road in is narrow, windy, and some steep hills. Saw only one big A RV there. About 20 miles NW of Nashville off of state highway 12.33. - 210jem

We paid $9.50 19, but full price is at a corp of engineers park that is rather small, but very well laid out. The pads were concrete and very level. It had a large playground. There was a lot of fishing and good fish-cleaning places. It will close the 31st of October for the winter. We were in a 31 foot class C. - winnie1

Rate was senior based. Site was huge, level, paved, grass between sites, shaded, river view across the lane. Very quiet and dark. Laundry was clean with one washer and dryer. Bath house is clean. Nice walking trails & river access for boaters. Staff is friendly. Tight turn in our 35 foot trailer from the site lane loop in order to exit; I was able to use fisherman boat parking lot to turn. Other sites in campground may have easier exit. Very steep hill into campground. About 12 miles to town for groceries and Wi-Fi at McDonald's. Great spot. - Scottsdale RVers

Park was clean and had lots of trees. It was also quiet and mostly used as an overnight stop, which is why we stayed here (we did not have a reservation). The park was a little tight navigating our 43.5' 5th wheel, however, it was able to be done without a lot of work since the park was mostly empty; if it had been dark or more busy, it would have been difficult to navigate. Site was not very level and was just long enough for the RV. But for an overnight stop, it was OK. - Rv warrior

I have a 30' Bumper Pull travel trailer. Most sites are short. We parked in a pull thru site that that was barely long enough for truck & trailer. Sewer dump was at the front of the site close to 20' from my dump outlet. Had to pull half way out the next morning in-order to dump my tanks. They do have a dump station but it was pretty busy with everyone leaving 1st thing that morning.
The pull thru sites are kind of close together and for that reason we were not allowed to have a campfire which we were really looking forward to after a long day on the road.
Very clean KOA. Would probably stay here again as an over-nighter, if we could get a site with more room and allowed us to have a fire. - arkansasmel

Didn't like this place at all but had to stay somewhere. Sites are very close, the road noise was the worst I have ever experienced. This is a old KOA and it shows it. The dog run is a joke. I guess if you have to get off the road for the night its OK but I wouldn't want to stay here longer then that. Verizon worked OK. - NPmoto
