87 campsites, many are pull-thru and about 20 are waterfront. Only two shower houses each with two showers for men and same for women. The shower houses and an additional rest room are all uphill from the lake area and the dirt paths to them are muddy slip-n-slides when it rains. Our hitch dragged getting up the steep gravel drive to our spacious level site. Many waterfront sites appear to be very challenging to get a level setup as they slope in all directions. Paved interior one-way road was easy to navigate. Quiet shaded campground on a COE lake. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Motorhome.

We stayed in site 13-15 during a heat wave. Every day storms came thru, so humidity and heat made it nearly unbearable. Thank goodness for ac. Husband thought it was great place and would stay again, but he'd have to do it without me. I prefer more sunshine than was able to get thru the thick tree cover. Staff very nice! Site was up an incline, but very level. We had a slight view of the lake from our site. The birds were hidden from sight, but they sang constantly, very pretty sounds. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent campground right on a Corps of Engineers lake. Site was remarkably level for this type of facility. I did not have to block up a 32 ft rig at all. Many of the sites are lakeside. Excellent staff. A great place to stay if you're in the Nashville TN area. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Motorhome.

A real bargain for great campground run by Army Corps Engineers We camp in a "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. Was impressed with our site #48 right on the lakes edge; large flat graveled site with good picnic table and firepit + 30 amp elec and water hookup with a dump station when you exit the park. Lots of green space between sites, no crowding and quite private. The park map gives impression the restroom/shower building is nearby; however it was quite a hike up a hill on a trail behind site 53. We used the car the next time and the 2nd restroom across from site 72 - also up the hill. Restroom/shower was typical government style tiled floors and cement block painted walls; very clean with a bench and ample hooks in changing area adjacent to the shower stall + a soap dish in the shower stall. It would have been nice to have rubber floor mats as you exit shower to keep feet out of standing water when drying off and paper towels to clean up sink area which was messy after usage. Hot air dryers worked ok for your hands but that was about it. The restrooms are not well placed/located within the park, but overall the park was a good experience. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park on a great lake. Sites are spacious with a nice sense of privacy. Even numbered sites are on the water with a nice view and access. W&E with a dump station. Quiet, wildlife area. Boat ramp. In the forest, nice shade. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Motorhome.

Stayed for 6 nights while visiting Nashville. Nice sites along the lake. Well shaded, quiet. Some pull through, some doubles for camping with friends in another rv. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Travel Trailer.

The sites are very shaded. Many sites had very uneven entrances and pads. The overall impression was that it needed a bit of upkeep. Some sites looked good. The views of the lake are nice. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Tent Trailer.

Make sure you bring a leveler for your camper. I had to use a BAL leveler fully extended to level trailer.

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. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Motorhome.

The campground was off the interstate a ways and is a COE campground with a senior discount. The sites were a little unlevel. Ours had a view of the lake. The bathrooms were up on a steep hill so we didn't use them. Most of them were shaded, a lot of pull-throughs, a couple of levels and many on the lake. It was a nice relaxing campground, except we were there in August in 90 degree temps! We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Motorhome.

This park is not well suited for larger RV's. Most of the sites are gravel and are not level. Some are very steep to get in and out of. There are about 90 sites, so it is also quite congested. It is much more appropriate for families tent camping or with small towables or pop-ups. If driving an RV, call ahead and ask the hosts if the site you are considering is suitable for your rig. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Motorhome.

Roads into this campground are paved. Not all sites are level. I would advise folks to be careful in their site selection. We were in Site 7, which is a single site. If you are planning to camp with another family, a double site would probably work for you. The problem with those sites is that either the folks camping have to work together for arrival and departure times, or someone is forced to back out. In addition, some of the sites do not have water nor electric hookup. All that said, this is a beautiful campground. I would recommend Site 7, if you don't require a site on the lake. Site 7 is up on a slight hill, but is level and somewhat hidden from the road. The boat ramp is really nice. Given our experience here has been on a holiday weekend, there was a lot of activity throughout the park. We liked the privacy of our site and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Motorhome.

We camped here while attending a wedding in Nashville, TN. The campground is located a short distance from Nashville. They must have taken care of the hanging tree limbs because we did not notice them. But the campground is heavily wooded. My wife said that it reminded her of a typical camping experience. The trees line the lake shores and majority of the lake front sites are a little bit away from the lakes. Don't stress to be on the lake front sites because the view is covered by trees and the tree limbs in most of them. The shade will provide lots of shades in the hot summer months. It has two bath houses, but you have to hunt for the short pathways to them to avoid driving round to get at them. The other important thing to note is the fact that some sites share same pull through route. We stayed on site #51 and had the option of backing in since the entrance on site #49 was already occupied. The family on site #49 couldn't leave unless we pulled out our camper. We like the park and COE's effort to leave nature undisturbed. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Travel Trailer.

This COE park is about 13 miles off the interstate, so it is not convenient for a night stop over. The RV sites are on a separate route from tent camping and the showers and toilet is a long walk from the RV sites. They were placed to be available for tenters. The facilities are dated and need updated. While clean, they are old and well used. The trees on the 11 mile road into the park need trimming, so care should be taken on the way in and out. I would not stay here again as it is too far off the main road. We camped at Poole Knobs COE in a Fifth Wheel.
