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

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

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 here for two nights while visiting Nashville. Had a pool with live country music each night, which was nice. Other than that, it is a very basic park. The playground was less than satisfactory. If you are in the area just touring Nashville, this campground could meet your needs. - Blang38

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

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

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

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

The Web page shows this lovely office with a front porch. This was about the only thing pretty about it. The people running it were nice and wish I could have said that much about the park itself. Uneven site, never weeded the little bit of gravel there was. NO cable, which would have been fine, except no antenna TV either. No wifi and I think we were next to all the full timers who didn't take care of their spaces.
Other people mentioned the train that ran all time next to most of the sites. We were next to the road and the train nearby but weren't bothered by the noise. Sites very disorganized and WAY too close together. Our slide out was literally 6 inches from the trailer next to us. Very narrow roads and sites. - TLS21

Their web site only shows the office. Now I know why. Campground is unkept, terrible odor in the office, staff not friendly and very loud. They call it a resort, but there is no fire pit, cable tv or picnic table at our site. No swimming pool. No dog run. Train is right next to park and runs all night. They handle the food with no gloves, even wonder if they are required to have a food handlers permit. Will never stay again. - chubber

Streets are narrow and gravel, so maneuvering can be a bit challenging for larger RVs. The RR tracks are about 50' behind the outside row of RV sites and traffic on the track is heavy. Some food service and there is music 3 evenings a week, such as it is. The staff were efficient and helpful and are probably the strongest point of this park. Many workers of various types in long term sites with accompanying collections of "stuff" and vehicles.
We might stop for one night in the future, but not for any longer stay. - RV Camper1

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

First we were happy we had a place to stay after a long drive. These sites are very close, I bumped my head on the rv next to us slide out while hooking up the utilities. All grass sites and not well marked. Our slide was close to our other neighbours grill. If that person hadn't moved their truck we would still be there as there would be no way to swing the back out without hitting it. Park was easy to get in and out of though. - cbrew

Before I forget to mention it, there is EXCELLENT WiFi here, which doesn't happen in most RV parks. We stayed here 5 nights while visiting Nashville. The park is spacious, lots of sites, lots of trees and paved interior roads. Sites are gravel/grass and level. Sites have ground level wooden patio decks that we covered with our outside rug (worked great.) Hookups worked well, though sites are somewhat narrow, so hookups are close to neighbors, but on the other hand they are long enough to fit your RV and tow vehicle. Then again, depending on how people park those tow vehicles depended on whether your neighbors were asking (understandably) to move your tow vehicle so they could swing out upon checkout. The way out (around a couple of cabins) is tight, depending if the cabin renter decides to park their vehicle close to the cabin which then makes it tight for big rigs to get around. Yes, it's tight, but workable. The freeway noise is close and if that bugs you, reconsider. On the other hand, it's a comfy KOA close (but far enough away) from the Nashville hubbub. Staff here at the KOA is friendly and always willing to help. We'll stay here again. - ErinandCorbin

Stayed 1 night in pull thru section. narrow paved roads, gravel site level with a wooden patio deck and picnic table. Cable and WiFi were good. Lots of road noise. I-65 runs along back of park. Did not use any of the amenities. Pricey for 1 night and would not stay here again. - DBSnowbirds
