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

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

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

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

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

We stayed here because nearby parks had no space. We paid the extra amount for an extended site so that we could park our truck with the trailer since the site originally assigned would not accommodate both. The interior roads had huge holes in them. The speed bumps are extreme. Our site had a large hole in the grass which was an obvious hazard. This is a park with lots of activities for children. However, for empty nesters this was a very poor value. The wifi was practically nonexistent. - SomedayCame

Nothing special here, but a place to park with hookups close to the sights in Nashville. One of those parks where your neighbor's sewer hookup is right next to your picnic table! - dmkimm

We came to this park when the campground next door lost our confirmed reservations. We are not disappointed with this park. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. There are a few sites that seem to have permanent residents and it shows. If you are in a larger MH pay the extra money and get a site in the extended length area. It's quiet,nice and open. - Cinbob

We had a very satisfactory stay. Site was level, location is very good, staff was friendly, store is large and there is free entertainment on the back porch. I'm not sure why some people have had such negative experiences as described in other reviews.
The drawbacks are that there are very few FHs (50amp) sites and the pedestals don't have breakers on them. Some of the sites don't have a lot of grass. - McGarrert50

This was a nice clean park. Spaces are a little close together and can be a little short but OK for us. Staff was friendly and the store well stocked. There is road noise if you are up front like we were but it did quiet down into the evening. They have a nice pool and as others have mentioned, they have live entertainment several nights a week. Easy access from major interstates off the loop around Nashville. Nice for a one night stay or several while visiting Nashville. They did have a dog walk area and small playground for kids. Definitely less expensive than several parks in the area. - 1texan

Showers are small but clean. WiFi was acceptable but not very usable at peak times. Low water pressure. Gravel site was level. Laundry was clean and maintained. Ok park for a short stay. - PLitzel

Wow! After coming back from the west coast heading home this Is a great example to me what a KOA should be. Upgrade to the nicer sites. Level and asphalt site with nice table and glider. Also a Nice fire pit. Cable worked great and WiFi as well. The sites are plenty long for our coach with tow dolly and car. They have one of the nicest pool I've seen. Great outdoors play area with the chess and bowling for everyone. Great inside media room with puzzles and games for everyone to play.
Stay here if you can! We will be back when going to Nashville. - virginiagirl2015

The restroom in S section was new and nice, but not cleaned on a regular basis. Our site became very muddy when it rained. The facilities are not what I would expect for the cost. - george64

Park and restrooms are very clean and well maintained. There is an obvious difference between the "premium sites" and "regular sites". Premium are well landscaped, close to amenities and more spacious. We stayed in a "regular" site and still had to pay $63 per night. When we called in advance to inquire about a dog walker, the phone answerer was rude - "we don't do that". I reiterated if they have someone they recommend. "No." I can't imagine why they have "resort" in their name and are close to such a tourist city that they can't recommend a person or 2 for this service. - Ms Winnie
