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

The owners are the biggest detriment to this park. I overheard the old man owner referring to one of his monthly renters and said if they don't like it they have wheels and can leave. Not my idea of customer service. Also restrooms covered in mold and bugs. The shower water was scorching. The office didn't even write it down. I would Never give that place another cent. - darlene eley

Park is OK for an overnight stay, but no longer. Appears to have at one time to have been a KOA, but has become very trashy with permanent residents. Long grass, expired plates (one 2004?) on several worn out vehicles, with old RVs and rutted roads the norm. The showers were in bad need of "de-mildewing" and updating. The pool looked great, but very small. Our pull through site worked for us and the power was good, so that's all that really mattered. - Teacher's Pet

We made a reservation but upon checking in was told they don't take reservations as they are strictly first come first serve. Luckily there was one space available. This campground has mostly long term campers but it's well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Laundry room is spacious with TV and rocking chair provided while waiting for the laundry. Washing machine takes $1.50 per load while the dryer is 50 cents for 10 minute drying time. We won't stay here again due to not taking reservations. - gartail

The lady in the office was very helpful. Otherwise it was average. They did have a nice pool but it didnt seem clean. The bathrooms and showers were unkempt. - darlene eley

Poor quality, trashed, run down, and avoid at all cost. I am not joking, restrooms have no doors, dirty, and run down. Would not recommend to stay here. Go somewhere else. - JayC90

This park is haphazardly laid out, crowded, and dirty. Most of the guests are obviously long-term. Some of the rigs are in poor condition and surrounded by junk in the site. We had to put up with loud, cursing, and arguing neighbors. Several dogs would bark at every loud noise, in other words, often. The roadways are narrow and often used for parking by guests. The trash dumpster was overflowing with several bags of trash on the ground outside the dumpster. We did not use the restrooms, showers or laundry facilities...afraid to. We thought the rate was outrageous for this place. Obviously, the owners don't put anything back into the park. The way only redeeming factor was the lady in the office. She was very friendly and helpful. We had an emergency and could not find and anywhere else to stay, but we would stay in the Walmart parking lot before coming back here again. - normav

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

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

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

Very beautiful park. Lots of walking paths. Kids loved the playground. Great for fishing. The deer would walk within 15ft of the kids. They do have a tiny gift shop in the building when you first pull in. Only things we found bad was very tall grass that needed mowed and then no swimming areas for the kids. - Campingfamily4life

Very clean. Some lakeside sites. Excellent selection of sites for various types and sizes of campers and tents. This park has quite a few pull-through sites of various lengths. - ktbear

Absolutely beautiful park. Most sites have at least partial shade. Easy to navigate. Highly recommend. On Old Hickory Lake with boat ramp. Great and short hiking trails along lake and ridge. - rosie and ruby

Nice open campsites with loops of approximately 6 or 7 campsites within a tight circle so can be a little tricky getting in and out. The sites were level and mostly treed but not all sites. Many had boards around the patio without any drainage so it was a small pool area when it rained, try to pick the site visually rather than online like we did. The restrooms are an all in one with no ventilation, therefore very humid and hot in July. The campground is on a nice lake with a boat ramp and swimming area. About 30 minutes from Nashville. - SGF

Very nice campground. The interior loop spots are well spaced and angled so that you're not looking at your neighbor's camper side when sitting out. The waterfront spaces are stunning, with large separation between sites and angled for nice privacy from the road and views of the lake. Only a few spots in the park appeared to require some blocking to achieve a level rig. The majority of the sites were very level.
The newer bath house near the dump location has individual unisex rooms instead of separate male/female sides. Each is very roomy with the sink, toilet and shower. The older shower house on the other side of the park on the way out of the park is not so nice.....avoid it unless you can't make it to the other side of the park.
There is a very nice beach that is part of the park, but not much else at the park. We stayed here 3 nights while visiting Nashville. It is very close to The Hermitage, and not very far from Opryland. It's about 30 minutes from downtown Nashville. We would stay again. - GA Bob

This park is 10 miles or so of windy, narrow roads off the highway, but if you can hack that, its a nice enough park. The sites are close together, but cleverly arranged around circles, which creates more privacy than you typically have being that close, and parking is a breeze. The sites are long and very level. There's lots of park area with grass and trees. The only thing not well designed about the park is the dump station, which is very inconveniently placed. The place was mostly quiet, but on Saturday and Sunday morning, starting at 6 am and going on for some time, there was a loud noise like someone setting off charges or an engine backfiring. It probably was coming from the nearby marina. ATT and verizon signals were decent. There is no wifi, but at the marina (5 minutes walk), there is open wifi of good quality. There is also a little cafe there which (don't go by the looks) has very good food. I had a nice visit, but probably would not return due to the drive in and out. - KAP99

The public roads in are small but the roads in the CG are fine. The trees are old and large, very shady. The lake/river is large at the point, just OK for wading and swimming but looked very good for boating.
The site was very nice, a patio that overlooked the lake (through the trees). - Jlcamper

This is a small campground: less than 30 sites. The sites are gravel, large, level and clean. Nice picnic tables and fire pits. Sites 10-15 on the waterfront are very nice. No hiking but beautiful sites. - RosalitaAS

This park was beautiful. We had to set up in the rain and loved that it was on a slab. It was very peaceful and quiet. There was a playground for the little ones. Lots of squirrels everywhere. - Campingfamily4life

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

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
