This was our first stay at this campgrounds. Adjacent to the campgrounds there is a water park that I believe is owned by Northville Shores. I also believe that the water park came before the campground. The sites are well maintained on concrete slabs. Some sites are within arms reach of each other. If you are planning to have a relaxing and quite stay you should know that the music from the water park starts at 10am and continues until closing at 8 or 9pm. There is no WiFi in the campground, you have to go to the office to use it and I have been told by another camper that they charge $5.00 for its use. The pool is in the water park so you will have to pay to enter the park They do give campers a discount. They have priced it so you have to buy a season pass if you plan to use it more than one day. The water front sites are not accessible due to a fence. No access to the lake except near the boat launch site. I for one do not recommend this camp ground. Our neighbor started to remove the axle on there travel trailer at 7:00am. It seems they don't inspect for these things. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Travel Trailer.

This is primarily a waterpark/marina and I would imagine during the summer months is extremely crowded and loud. We stayed here in their off season so the park was pretty empty and the waterpark was not yet open. The staff here is very friendly and very helpful. The park is located close to town, with shopping and attractions close by. The sites are concrete and some are level, but there are large concrete columns placed randomly throughout the area that, combined with the tight turns and narrow roads, make for some interesting navigation in a 45 foot rig. While here, we saw a couple rigs get caught up on the concrete curb while negotiating the tight turns. As long as you're careful driving around the interior of the park, this is a nice place to stay. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Motorhome.

The park sits on the shores of J. Percy Priest Lake and offers fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. The Andrew Jackson Hermitage homesite is a few miles down the road, as is shopping and restaurants. Nashville attractions are a short drive away as well.

We chose to stay here for the lake view while traveling in the Nashville area. Nice lake view but our back in site was difficult to get into. Water pressure was low and cable was awful. The bath house was clean. Would not return unless we came for the water park. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice place but no pool which was bad on a hot stay, only way to cool off was to pay to get in the water park, did have cable tv but was not clear. They did have a shuttle ($) to get into Nashville which was very good. If in the area again would look for a different campground. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

We have 43 ft. Fifth wheel and this park is not big rig friendly. We had no water pressure at all and when we complained we were told that we were on the same water line as the water park and that when it closed it would get better! Really????? We had little or no internet service. Their Nashville Shoreliner boat was not operating nor was the Banana boat rides. Very disappointed! We camped at Nashville Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an expensive place to stay. We specifically camped here to use the water park. Entry to the water park is an additional cost above the camping fee. Outside of the water park there a few amenities and there is not a campground pool. There is a small playground, laundry, dog park, but not much else. While Nashville Shores is roughly a 13 mile drive to downtown Nashville, if you aren't coming here for the water park but as a home base to explore Nashville you may prefer to stay elsewhere for a cheaper cost. Out site (#13) was across the street from the lake providing us fairly nice views when lakeside RVs weren't blocking our view. You cannot access the lake from the campground due to a fence. Behind our site were nice mature trees that provided wonderful afternoon shade. The pad was level concrete. Bathhouse was mostly clean. In the bathhouse there were three bathrooms in the men's and three in the women's each with its own toilet, sink, shower, and lockable door providing privacy. Due to the cost, I would only stay here again if our main purpose was to use the water park. Water park is medium size, but our three kids, all under 11, had a fantastic time. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you will be visiting the water park for more than two days, the best deal is to purchase a season pass at the discounted camper rate. Visit Andrew Jackson's Home in Hermitage. The Tennessee State museum is a short drive in downtown Nashville and is free. The Blackstone Brew Pub has good food and beer and is also in downtown Nashville.

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. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to head down to Broadway to see all the live music and action. If you're looking for a neat little downtown to visit, check out Franklin, TN. The water park looks awesome and well worth the $24.99 discounted price.

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. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park - everything was clean and worked well. Maybe a bit pricey (our rate reflects Good Sam discount). Unlike the previous reviewer, I think it's perfectly reasonable to pay extra for the waterpark, zip lines, jet skis, kayaks, etc. (it's not like they charge for wifi, sewer or 50A service like some campgrounds). We camped at Nashville Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

The water at this park was brown, not drinkable. We showed the office a cup of the water and were told that their pipes are old galvanized pipes that caused the water to be brown. We never heard from a manager in response to our inquiry. We bought bottled water to use. We stayed 2 nights. Would not return to this park due to the cost and undrinkable water. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Motorhome.

Nice, older park with tighter and shorter concrete spaces than desired. We had initially booked a back-in on the lake however switched to a pull-through when we saw the traffic flow pattern would not allow us an easy exit. Very nice folks at the park. This is a great park for ease of access to Nashville events and attractions. Wi-Fi and cable TV selection could be improved. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Fifth Wheel.

I must say, I was very disappointed in this campground. It seemed that everything in this campground cost extra. The water park on site was discounted to $25 per person, per day. The Zip Line offered cost money too. Though you are on a 30 mile reservoir lake, there is no lake access. You get to look at the lake through a chain link fence, but you can't swim in it. They do give you access to the lake in the water park, though it is only a 20' x 10' roped off section. Their camp store is basically empty. The campground was clean and well kept... but that was it. They have signs everywhere telling you No Swimming and No Bike Riding. Upon arrival they made us sign a waiver stating that if we get hurt on their property, it was our doing and not their fault. No pool, and charging you a small fortune for their water park--shame, shame, shame! My site (#42) had studs coming out of the cement pad which I had to cover with wood (to keep toes from getting injured). All my grass area was covered with straw to hide the mud. I could not use my site at all. I would never visit this campground again. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Motorhome.

Loved, Loved this campground. We stayed on site 34 which is a waterfront view of the lake. Awesome is all can say about the view. The site was level, paved, and picnic tables in good shape. The waterfront sites the land does slope down to a fence which wasn't a big deal for us. We stayed Sun-Wed but the water park was only open on weekends which made for a quiet stay which was nice. Bath houses were some of the cleanest I've experienced. The only down side is with the water park not being open during the week when we stayed and there wasn't a swimming beach we could use that wasn't far away. But other than that it is one of the best parks I've had the pleasure staying at. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Travel Trailer.
