Very beautiful park. Lots of walking paths. Kids loved the playground. Great for fishing. The deer would walk within 15ft of the kids. They do have a tiny gift shop in the building when you first pull in. Only things we found bad was very tall grass that needed mowed and then no swimming areas for the kids. - Campingfamily4life

Very clean. Some lakeside sites. Excellent selection of sites for various types and sizes of campers and tents. This park has quite a few pull-through sites of various lengths. - ktbear

Absolutely beautiful park. Most sites have at least partial shade. Easy to navigate. Highly recommend. On Old Hickory Lake with boat ramp. Great and short hiking trails along lake and ridge. - rosie and ruby

The public roads in are small but the roads in the CG are fine. The trees are old and large, very shady. The lake/river is large at the point, just OK for wading and swimming but looked very good for boating.
The site was very nice, a patio that overlooked the lake (through the trees). - Jlcamper

This is a small campground: less than 30 sites. The sites are gravel, large, level and clean. Nice picnic tables and fire pits. Sites 10-15 on the waterfront are very nice. No hiking but beautiful sites. - RosalitaAS

This park was beautiful. We had to set up in the rain and loved that it was on a slab. It was very peaceful and quiet. There was a playground for the little ones. Lots of squirrels everywhere. - Campingfamily4life

Nice open campsites with loops of approximately 6 or 7 campsites within a tight circle so can be a little tricky getting in and out. The sites were level and mostly treed but not all sites. Many had boards around the patio without any drainage so it was a small pool area when it rained, try to pick the site visually rather than online like we did. The restrooms are an all in one with no ventilation, therefore very humid and hot in July. The campground is on a nice lake with a boat ramp and swimming area. About 30 minutes from Nashville. - SGF

Very nice campground. The interior loop spots are well spaced and angled so that you're not looking at your neighbor's camper side when sitting out. The waterfront spaces are stunning, with large separation between sites and angled for nice privacy from the road and views of the lake. Only a few spots in the park appeared to require some blocking to achieve a level rig. The majority of the sites were very level.
The newer bath house near the dump location has individual unisex rooms instead of separate male/female sides. Each is very roomy with the sink, toilet and shower. The older shower house on the other side of the park on the way out of the park is not so nice.....avoid it unless you can't make it to the other side of the park.
There is a very nice beach that is part of the park, but not much else at the park. We stayed here 3 nights while visiting Nashville. It is very close to The Hermitage, and not very far from Opryland. It's about 30 minutes from downtown Nashville. We would stay again. - GA Bob

This park is 10 miles or so of windy, narrow roads off the highway, but if you can hack that, its a nice enough park. The sites are close together, but cleverly arranged around circles, which creates more privacy than you typically have being that close, and parking is a breeze. The sites are long and very level. There's lots of park area with grass and trees. The only thing not well designed about the park is the dump station, which is very inconveniently placed. The place was mostly quiet, but on Saturday and Sunday morning, starting at 6 am and going on for some time, there was a loud noise like someone setting off charges or an engine backfiring. It probably was coming from the nearby marina. ATT and verizon signals were decent. There is no wifi, but at the marina (5 minutes walk), there is open wifi of good quality. There is also a little cafe there which (don't go by the looks) has very good food. I had a nice visit, but probably would not return due to the drive in and out. - KAP99

First we were happy we had a place to stay after a long drive. These sites are very close, I bumped my head on the rv next to us slide out while hooking up the utilities. All grass sites and not well marked. Our slide was close to our other neighbours grill. If that person hadn't moved their truck we would still be there as there would be no way to swing the back out without hitting it. Park was easy to get in and out of though. - cbrew

Before I forget to mention it, there is EXCELLENT WiFi here, which doesn't happen in most RV parks. We stayed here 5 nights while visiting Nashville. The park is spacious, lots of sites, lots of trees and paved interior roads. Sites are gravel/grass and level. Sites have ground level wooden patio decks that we covered with our outside rug (worked great.) Hookups worked well, though sites are somewhat narrow, so hookups are close to neighbors, but on the other hand they are long enough to fit your RV and tow vehicle. Then again, depending on how people park those tow vehicles depended on whether your neighbors were asking (understandably) to move your tow vehicle so they could swing out upon checkout. The way out (around a couple of cabins) is tight, depending if the cabin renter decides to park their vehicle close to the cabin which then makes it tight for big rigs to get around. Yes, it's tight, but workable. The freeway noise is close and if that bugs you, reconsider. On the other hand, it's a comfy KOA close (but far enough away) from the Nashville hubbub. Staff here at the KOA is friendly and always willing to help. We'll stay here again. - ErinandCorbin

Stayed 1 night in pull thru section. narrow paved roads, gravel site level with a wooden patio deck and picnic table. Cable and WiFi were good. Lots of road noise. I-65 runs along back of park. Did not use any of the amenities. Pricey for 1 night and would not stay here again. - DBSnowbirds

Stayed for 5 nights as we visited relatives in the area and Nashville. Very impressed with the overall facilities and staff were friendly and very helpful. Did not give a 10 in overall rating due to closeness of the spaces however somewhat typical of many KOAs. WiFi was good. While no cable TV, able to pickup over the air many local channels. Pad was gravel and very adequate. Restrooms were clean and well stocked. Will stay here again. We camped in a class C motorhome. - Tiger6

The grounds are beautiful as is the landscaping. The sites however are not level. The interior roads are sand and gravel and we had torrential rains that ran rivers through them. The campground maintenance tried to level out the ruts however it just made things worse. The gravel that is on portions of the interior roads are in huge chunks which makes for a hazardous walk through the campground. As we left the campground the ruts and uneven roads caused the motorhome to tilt so badly that water from the toilet spilled onto the floor! - Tony Connie and Rusty

For the price we expected much more. This is NOT a big rig friendly campground. The roads are tight and rutted, the pull-through sites aren't long enough, and low tree branches hit our rig in the park and on the 2 mile road leading to it. The sites are terraced on a hill. Our site wasn't level (requiring three leveling blocks under the tires), and there wasn't a place off the pad to even sit level in a chair or use the BBQ (everything was on a slope). The water pressure, electrical (reading 117 volts), and sewer were satisfactory. The WiFi never worked while we were here, despite daily assurances that someone was working on it. Also be aware that their stated rates do not include a hefty 14.25% sales tax that will be added. All-in-all, this was not a good experience, and we won't be back. - Paff

The Web page shows this lovely office with a front porch. This was about the only thing pretty about it. The people running it were nice and wish I could have said that much about the park itself. Uneven site, never weeded the little bit of gravel there was. NO cable, which would have been fine, except no antenna TV either. No wifi and I think we were next to all the full timers who didn't take care of their spaces.
Other people mentioned the train that ran all time next to most of the sites. We were next to the road and the train nearby but weren't bothered by the noise. Sites very disorganized and WAY too close together. Our slide out was literally 6 inches from the trailer next to us. Very narrow roads and sites. - TLS21

Their web site only shows the office. Now I know why. Campground is unkept, terrible odor in the office, staff not friendly and very loud. They call it a resort, but there is no fire pit, cable tv or picnic table at our site. No swimming pool. No dog run. Train is right next to park and runs all night. They handle the food with no gloves, even wonder if they are required to have a food handlers permit. Will never stay again. - chubber

Streets are narrow and gravel, so maneuvering can be a bit challenging for larger RVs. The RR tracks are about 50' behind the outside row of RV sites and traffic on the track is heavy. Some food service and there is music 3 evenings a week, such as it is. The staff were efficient and helpful and are probably the strongest point of this park. Many workers of various types in long term sites with accompanying collections of "stuff" and vehicles.
We might stop for one night in the future, but not for any longer stay. - RV Camper1

If you want a particular site make sure you get it in writing. The office staff is new to accommodating RV'ers and it appears that a good "working" plan is still being developed (how to keep up with who is coming/going-where/when and what site numbers). This is a nice, established, mobile home park close to I-40 and conveniently located. There are plenty of spaces, and large sites. Maybe more suitable for the longer stays. - road-rambler

This park has uneven sites. So much so that, even with the use of the on-board RV leveling Jacks, we couldn't extend our bump outs.
This park is very unclean. The bathrooms (showers/commodes) are filthy and in need of maintenance, cleaning and updating.
The laundry facilities are the same. The machines are rusty (inside and out). I was afraid to use them over concern that the rust would bleed onto my clothes during the wash cycle. I had to take our camping laundry to an off-site laundromat.
Beyond the uncleanliness of the amenities, the grounds too are unkempt. The front sites (visible front he road) are mowed and weedeated. The back sites are not.
The camp directs you to walk your pets in a "designated area," that is all well and good if they would actually direct you to where that "designated area" is, which they did not. Everyone here seems to have a different opinion about where that is. The most common place seems to be by a large trash heap in the middle of the park. I walked my dog near that spot in the day, but was hesitant to at night. The pile of wood debris in the middle of your campground is dangerous. There are used boards with very large nails sticking up...just waiting for a child to fall or step on them and need an ER visit for tetanus shot and stitches. ed boards with very large nails sticking up...just waiting for a child/pet/anyone to fall or step on them and need an ER visit for tetanus shot and stitches.
We had an overnight stay on Saturday night. This was BYOB and Karaoke night on the office porch (not far from our camper). The more the crowd drank, the louder and more off pitch the Karaoke singers became. They started at 5 PM and continued until 10:00 PM. We had planned phone calls to family back home and a movie in our camper. The karaoke began and remained so loud, even inside our own RV, we were unable to keep our plans. - George Hall III

I stopped here looking for one nights rest. The staff was very polite and helpful. The campground is catering to mostly permanent setups and the newest RV in was at least 20 years old. I did not see any open sites except for the small one they put me on. It would be too small for anything over my 21 footer. I did my laundry here and while the machines have been well used. Some had rust and some were out of order. My clothes came out clean and dry. Everything remotely movable was chained and padlocked. If you want cheap camping and not a large rig it would be OK, but if rough looks aren't your style I would keep looking elsewhere. - Goinmobile

It reminds one of the poor section in Bombay, India. I would drive further, and I did, to find something else. They should name it "Rats nest". - dumpo

Poor quality, trashed, run down, and avoid at all cost. I am not joking, restrooms have no doors, dirty, and run down. Would not recommend to stay here. Go somewhere else. - JayC90

This park is haphazardly laid out, crowded, and dirty. Most of the guests are obviously long-term. Some of the rigs are in poor condition and surrounded by junk in the site. We had to put up with loud, cursing, and arguing neighbors. Several dogs would bark at every loud noise, in other words, often. The roadways are narrow and often used for parking by guests. The trash dumpster was overflowing with several bags of trash on the ground outside the dumpster. We did not use the restrooms, showers or laundry facilities...afraid to. We thought the rate was outrageous for this place. Obviously, the owners don't put anything back into the park. The way only redeeming factor was the lady in the office. She was very friendly and helpful. We had an emergency and could not find and anywhere else to stay, but we would stay in the Walmart parking lot before coming back here again. - normav

Stayed here for two nights while visiting Nashville. Had a pool with live country music each night, which was nice. Other than that, it is a very basic park. The playground was less than satisfactory. If you are in the area just touring Nashville, this campground could meet your needs. - Blang38

We had a very satisfactory stay. Site was level, location is very good, staff was friendly, store is large and there is free entertainment on the back porch. I'm not sure why some people have had such negative experiences as described in other reviews.
The drawbacks are that there are very few FHs (50amp) sites and the pedestals don't have breakers on them. Some of the sites don't have a lot of grass. - McGarrert50

This was a nice clean park. Spaces are a little close together and can be a little short but OK for us. Staff was friendly and the store well stocked. There is road noise if you are up front like we were but it did quiet down into the evening. They have a nice pool and as others have mentioned, they have live entertainment several nights a week. Easy access from major interstates off the loop around Nashville. Nice for a one night stay or several while visiting Nashville. They did have a dog walk area and small playground for kids. Definitely less expensive than several parks in the area. - 1texan
