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.

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.

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.

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.

We stayed on Sunday through Wednesday with friends and lucked out with perfect weather. We had site #35, lakefront with a nice shade tree for our two dogs. Lake front sites have a steep slope at the rear of the site rendering some of the "yard" area useless, but was not an issue for us. The view made it well worth it. Pet friendly park with a large off leash dog area. Sites were smallish, but staggered and the lakefront sites offer a spectacular view. The water park was only open on Sunday during our stay so the park was very quiet and peaceful. Restrooms were extremely clean, staff was very nice and helpful and the grounds were clean. Jet ski rentals on the lake were open even when the water park was not. As mentioned in a previous review, main downfall is the weather was hot and since the waterpark was not open there was no beach access from the park to get to the water to swim. Wi-Fi was available with many hotspots, but connections were still slow and spotty. Overall, one of the best campground we've been to. Not sure how much we would like it during peak waterpark season, but I would love to come back again during the off season. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Travel Trailer.

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.

This is a nice RV park in a water park on a large lake. It was nearly empty while we were there and was quiet except for some moderate noise from the near-by airport (I worry that it would be noisier during the summer, since the longer RV sites are right next to a huge water slide). They have some of the best-designed, cleanest baths I've seen at any park. The park store doesn't stock much, but shops and restaurants are an easy 5-minute drive away. We'll definitely plan to stay here again, at least during the off-season. Note that their longest sites are 62'. We stayed 3 nights in site 66. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Travel Trailer.

This campground shares it's entrance and interior roads with a water park. Campground rules are influenced by this also. Like no bike riding. We stayed here in October when the water park was closed. The campground was quiet, relaxing and has a great view of the lake. The sites are a comfortable size with standard hook ups. Firerings and tables are also provided. Site 11 had a rusty water problem and many trees needing dead limbs removed. Interior roads are rough and need repair. The "speed bumps" (I assume required for the waterpark customers) are annoying, to say the least. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Tent Trailer.

We made a trip to Nashville area for a wedding and picked this site because it was close to Interstate 40. Office personnel were extremely helpful and polite. We had a excellent lake-front site that provided plenty of space for our 40 foot RV and car. No pool but excellent dog park and close proximity to the water park. Some roads are a little tight and the turn around on the lake road might cause some problems. Many large RV were there and we will return on future trips. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Motorhome.

We camped here for 5 days at the end of July 2012 and were very disappointed in the campground. We paid a premium for "lake front" spot and there is a chain fence keeping us from the lake? The spots are pretty quite tight, grass/weeds were not cut, water was brown if we hadn't used it for a little bit. This park is definitely in need of TLC and just not worth anywhere near what they are charging. The speed bumps in this park are hell. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Travel Trailer.

This by far is the lousiest RV park we've stayed in. The help don't know a thing about the parking, tried to park us with hookups on wrong side. I have a 37' long rig with a 26' car hauler trailer that's 63' over all. You will not fit if this long. We reiterated our size when we booked in February. After changing sites where I picked and chose the site, it still took 40' of sewer hose to hookup. The help didn't really seem to care. Also patrons of the water park get in your way when you try to park either by walking or driving through, they also walk through your space. At $50 a night AVOID by all means. You don't even get entry to the water park. (Not that I care). I could write more but not enough space. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this campground for 7 days over the July 4th holiday. The campground is overpriced for what is available. There are no planned activities at the campground for kids, and there is NO POOL. They do have a playground, but for most of the sites, they are a far walk. They have lake access, but require everyone to wear life jackets, even though the swim area they have cordoned off, is 30ft by 40ft and is 3ft deep. They also only have about 6 life jackets at the beach access, so if another family is there already, you have to wait until they are finished swimming before you can get in the water. The view from the campground to the lake is wonderful, however you cannot even get close to the lake since they have placed a chain-link fence around it. Frustrating! I have heard wonderful things about the Nashville Yogi Bear, so stay there if you are visiting Nashville. Ended up paying $60 a night for a partially shaded spot. This campground should be priced at $30 a night since they don’t have a pool or activities for kids. Regarding the water park: it isn’t horribly bad. They could do a better job cleaning the trash up during the day, and pressure washing the sidewalks every day. The most frustrating part of visiting the park was the tube rental. I have yet to see a water park charge for tube rentals. We visited the park 5 times over the week and all five times there were no tubes to get on the rides unless you want to pay $7 each and carry them around with you all day. Nobody puts the free tubes back, so there is no way to go down the two slides the park has. The wave pool is incredibly over crowded. People are on tubes with no regard for the safety of others. The lazy river has no tubes, so people just float/walk down. All in all its a so so place to visit. We will not be visiting again. We camped at Nashville Shores in a Travel Trailer.
