18 Parks near La Vergne, Tennessee
Oct 2015 - $15.00
We stayed here from Sept 2015 - December 2015 as part of the Amazon Camperforce program; our campsite was paid for via Amazon. The campground is mostly old permanent campers and run down. We were staying in the back and had to be moved because the guy next to us was making all sorts of noise from midnight - 3am. They even told us they had other complaining about him and even one camper called the cops on him yet they did nothing about it but move us to another site.
The only amenities they had were showers and a bathhouse which were run down. The office allowed mail to be delivered for campers but always smelled of smoke and I couldn't even take my kids in due to that.
All in all this isn't a long term stay site. It would be fine for an overnight stop but we won't be back. - FrugalNavyWife

Campground was clean but had many old and rundown RVs that seems to be here for a while. Most are long term residence, most of them are in small travel trailers. No problems here but folks aren't very friendly. It is the only campground in the local area. We camped here to be close to family in the area. This is just a place to park your RV, no activities in the campground. - nascaron

Stayed in site 16. Great view of the lake. Clean facilities. Camper pad wasn't very level. Dumpster was overflowing at checkout on Monday (probably due to being July 4th weekend). Will definitely be back. - steen6302

Awesome park. Well maintained and extremely clean. Current hosts are friendly and helpful. They called to make sure we were OK when we didn't arrive on the first day of our reservation due to mechanical problems. The site we were in, 56, was just perfect. Little path down to the lake where we took our chairs and watched the lake go by. Even when full on the weekend it was very disciplined. Most of the noise stopped by 10 pm or so. Now, the helicopters, on the other hand, were annoying all day when they were landing/taking off in our direction. The scenery more than made up for it. Boat rental close if you don't have your own. Fish right from the shore by camp too. Some people had their boats pulled up right by their campsite. - Thorfinn

Our site was very easy to get into with our RV but there are definitely some sites that would be tough to get into with a large RV. Especially the sites on the inside of the loop as there are steep drives up to the flat pad. There are lots of trees so almost all of the sites are in heavy shade. Good voltage and water pressure. Verizon phone reception was very iffy. We were very lucky and had a hole just big enough to receive DirecTV service. - Ramblin On

Crowded park entirely gravel. Sites are not distinguishable and it is a good thing they provide an escort to you site. Folks in office are very nice. They have a nice pool and dog park. We stay here since it is close to where our daughter lives. We have stayed here before an would return because of its location. - User3770

We enjoyed our stay. Staff very nice. Park is very well maintained and picked up. Staff working all the time and easy to flag down if you have questions. All the hookups worked great. Some sites have satellite views.
Only negative is the usual: wifi never worked in 4 days. Strong signal but no internet access. - belgique

This campground did not live up to the expectations I've come to expect from a Corps of Engineers campground. It was somewhat overgrown and not very well kept. The website described our site as paved. In fact, it was gravel. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring.
Situated on the western shores of J. Percy Priest Lake, this campground is close to Nashville. This was a non-electric campground prior to 2012. A flood washed out several of the campsites and the Corps rebuilt 10 of sites with water and 50 amp electric service. Our site, #4, was spacious, but a bit of a challenge to back in to. It required backing off the main road, down and steep, off canter grade that really racked our motorhome's frame. I noticed several of the other sites appeared more difficult, if not impossible to access with a large motorhome. I don't think this access issue would affect those camping in travel trailers or 5th wheels. Once positioned on the site, everything was perfectly level. - moleary18

Beautiful setting. Peaceful, quiet, deer grazing. Our GPS sent us on a road that was very scary. Low hanging trees that scraped our coach up, low wires that made me cringe, and narrow, no shoulder road. One of the people in the office was rude and surly while the other person was nice and sold my husband a Senior Pass which we could use for one night. She was nicer the next day but sure started our visit on a sour note.
Our site was lovely but VERY tight. Now I know why some parks won't accept coaches over 40 feet. With four slides it was difficult to maneuver around the trees so they could be extended but we made it work. It was a pull through but a back in would have been easier on some of the sites we saw.
There is a dump conveniently located as you exit but as someone else mentioned it is a bit difficult to get in. They needed to make the turn wider for ease of entry.
The lake is beautiful but I wish they could do something about the geese and their poop which was EVERYWHERE. Pets aren't allowed on the beach but these birds walk all around leaving poop bigger than my dog's. I love nature and don't know what could be done but it really made for a nasty visit to the lake.
Again, it is a beautiful place but for us there were just one too many frustrations so I'm not sure we would go back. - tb919

This is a treasure of a Corp park. Located in Hemitage Tn 20 min from downtown Nashville. Located off a massive lake. I would say reserve months before you go in summer months. I did in winter to get premium site on the lake. Though other sites are available during the week but reserve on line. Its out of the way from residential and you have to weave some roads to get to it but roads are in great condition. - Ed D

This is a beautiful park located close to Nashville; a great place to stay while visiting the area. The $11 price reflects the COE 'Senior' discount.
We have a 38' 5th wheel and were able to back in to our site with some maneuvering. There are some sites that this might be difficult due to a somewhat narrow road, shoulders that dip and trees. I am not complaining, just giving you a heads up to be careful. The dump station was not that easy to use - you need to swing wide to avoid a 'raised' curb around one side of the dump station. - campersfromiowa

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. - Stedy

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. - WhiskeyMan

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. - DBLR

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

I arrived on the Saturday of CMA Country Fest and was happy to find a space as it is first come first served. There are about 20 sites with full hookups. On Monday everyone left except for 1 travel trailer. On Tuesday the police arrived with what amounted to a mobile jail. About 5 PM police cars started arriving with "suspects" in the back seats who were processed and placed in the back of the mobile jail. Sometime after 11 the police left.
The trash was never picked up after the crowd left.
On a positive note the "campground" is close to downtown. - mrracechaser

We chose this "park" for its proximity to Camp Bow Wow Nashville. It's not really a park. It's more like a parking lot. No reservations, just show up and pick a spot. First come, first served. It's cheap and close to downtown Nashville. We called a mobile RV repair in Nashville and they had never heard of it. There was just enough room to put our slides out. - juustright

As others wrote, not really a "campground/park" but available except when there is the monthly flea market (4th weekend of month usually) or fair time. It is really the only RV place in Nashville for a reasonable price for full hookup (no public restrooms). Sites are very tight, about 15' wide. 40' motor homes fit, but large 5ths/trailers will have problems because very little maneuver room unless you can get at the front of the parking. Also, even on 4" of blocks we were not quite level. However, only a couple miles to downtown makes up for some inconvenience. Normally (they say) not many RVs here, but at least 75% full when we were here. - BandD

The RV campground is but a small portion of the camping in this state park. We had water and 50 amp electric, but no sewer; however, there is a dump in the park. Bath house was very old and not too clean - be sure to take shower shoes. A mixture of pull thru and back in sites. Plenty of shade, but still got fairly good TV reception with antennae. Laundry room on site - 4 washers and dryers each. We paid $20 per night. No wifi and very weak Verizon coverage. - clongest
May 2015 - $25.00
I selected "$25.00" because I can't remember the exact nightly rate. It was somewhere in the $20's range.
Rustic-type State Park. There is a loop with pull-through large sites for motorhomes, but we chose the more rustic loop with smaller sites. Most of them are somewhat unlevel, the paved camp roads are rough, and you need to be a skilled driver/backer to manipulate some of the roads and sites. Fortunately, its just the type of place I prefer. Spacious campsites, though unlevel. Very rustic setting, requires skill (which I have) to back-in the tight areas, but once your are setup its great. Good power, nice fire pits and picnic tables. Will definitely return here again, but we plan to visit many more of the State Parks in Tennessee. - JaredWPhillips

This state park has "cattle car" camping more often found in commercial parks with RVs jammed together, at least in Camping Area 1. Sites were heavily sloped. Other facilities were nice: well marked trails, horseback riding and an olympic-size swimming pool(closed for the season). - Mtmoi

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
