1 Park near Hermitage, Tennessee

We stayed at Nashville Shores for 5 nights over Memorial Day weekend and overall had a very good experience. We stayed in one of the lakefront locations. All of their sites have concrete pads and the roads are paved. There are some speed bumps, but we didn't find them to be horrible. The water supply was good and pressure fantastic. We use a regulator, but friends of ours who don't said it was some of the best pressure they've had at a park. Our water filter broke on the second night so we had to go about 12 hours without a filter and the water was clear - not brown as some others have mentioned. The sites were close together, but very well staggered so when you looked out your windows, you would see nothing but beautiful Lake Percy Priest. The worst part was the high quantity of goose droppings in the grass on the service side of our RV. It was a mine field. I realize there's not much you can do there, but we had to really clean our shoes or risk tracking it into our camper. The cable was terrible so we went with over the air. Plenty of strong stations from Nashville...much more than what we could get on Cable. The people checking us in and working at the store were fantastic. Very helpful with tips and ideas of places to go and see. We went to the beach one day and they had lifeguards on duty to watch the 40 square feet of swimming area. Yes, it's crazy that you're required to wear a life vest, but they had about 30 of them and there was only about 5 of us on the beach. They had two lifeguards there - so they could take turns working...definitely overkill for the situation, but they were both really sweet kids and we were able to keep each other company for the couple of hours we were out there. We had virtually front row seats for the fireworks show on Saturday night. Overall, we really enjoyed the park and the trip and would definitely go back. - Samron68

Not Big Rig Friendly and a bit pricey. We have a 39 foot fifth wheel trailer with an F350 dually truck. We had asked for an easy access back-in site on the lake. There was no escort to our camp site and were given directions that could not be followed due to some construction trucks blocking the road. The roads at this campground have 6 inch curbs that prevent you from driving on the grass. Unfortunately the concrete pads for their sites are only 10 feet wide and the roads are not wide enough to make a decent backup turn into the camp site without going over the curbs. It only took us 30 minutes to back into our camp site with the help of several other campers. If we stay here again we will insist upon a pull through site, those still have the same 10 foot wide concrete pad, but they have no curbs to jump over.
The WIFI at this park had 4 different transmitters but only one would let us log in successfully and then it was slow and we had intermittent internet access. We had to resort to using our ATT hotspot which had good reception.
You don't have to worry about speeding traffic at this campground there are plenty of robust speed bumps to challenge both speeders and trailers.
This campground during mid-April was fairly quiet. It is located at a water park so the noise level during the summer would not be the same.
The scenery was very nice and the grounds are well maintained. There are fire rings at the camp sites but the campground rules require you to purchase your fire wood at the campground and not bring it in. - Castle on Wheels

NOT big rig friendly. Pull through sites are short. Turns in park are difficult to impossible to navigate. Concrete curbs and columns make corners for anyone over 35' difficult. Speed bumps are hazardous. Bathrooms had wet, slippery floors but were not clean. Setting was pretty but odd that the lake was fenced off. They started working on the water park immediately next to the campground with big machinery and power tools at 6am. No bike riding allowed in park. Overall while it was a very pretty setting it was not worth trying to get in and out. - Terri R
