We like the location as we are visiting family. The internet is not great and the sites are too close together. No cable tv !! The people here are great but it does look like a refugee camp with a lot of live ins and looking unkempt in places....I would come back again. - juanroberto

This was self-described as an "urban campground" and that is very accurate. Most of the residents are longterm folks and their RV's have not been moved in moths or years. The park offered hookups in almost every nook and cranny of the property at odd angles with very circuitous routes in the campground. We truly needed a guide to find our spot. The helpers were courteous and helpful but the park is really only for spending the night sleeping while enjoying all that Nashville offers. - Birdieman

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

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

This is a US Army Corps of Engineers camp found on J.Priest Lake ,15 miles outside of Nashville. Wonderful,spacious,level sites with both direct waterfront and wooded areas. Sites 1 through 6 offer outstanding views of lake and access. This location is tucked back far enough from the noise and distractions yet within a few miles of any services or shopping you may need. Great place. Will be back. Truly a gem. - mrbgull

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

This was such a nice Campground! It was close to Nashville and so much cheaper. The only thing it doesn't have is sewer but it does have a single dump area. The sites are all concrete and paved, they look newly reworked too. The sites by the water have stairs down and almost all sites have super long driveways. It's private and spacious but you can still see other campers. Plus the sunrise and sunset from the lake were beautiful! - LaurenP

The park facilities were clean, the camping area well laid out, and quiet. Plenty of room to maneuver our 34' fifth wheel. The park is pretty with many trees and a beautiful lake. Access to Nashville activities was easy and only 15-30 minute drive to most attractions. We really enjoyed our five night stay at this campground. - Jayhawkfan

We have camped at many COE parks in the past including Seven Points. It seems that maintenance and upkeep have gone to the wayside here at Seven Points. The grass was extremely high in places, almost to your knees in some. The bath house (1) is in need of some serious upgrades, clean but well worn. The one bath house and one restroom ran out of toilet paper over the week end and the host stated it wasn't his job to furnish extra rolls, the cleaning crews took care of that.
The one dump station is installed backward, with the rinse hose connection on the wrong side of the RV. Also, the dump station is really tight, curved and narrow, making it hard to get your big rig in without running over the curb and possibly damaging your tire sidewall, be careful.
Another problem with Seven Points, with today's large RV's, the roads in the campground are fairly narrow which makes it very hard to back your rig into some sites, without getting front tires into the side ditch.
But, overall, if you look over the minuses and look only at the positives, Seven Points is still a great place to camp. Wonderful views and normally very quiet and peaceful and very convenient to the Nashville sights and sounds. I just hope that maintenance is not falling to the wayside. Normally COE parks are a great place to camp and very well kept. - Jimmymike

This is a beautiful RV park located right on Percy Priest Lake. Most sites are back-ins with full hook-ups and either a full or partial view of the lake or marina. All utilities worked well and the bathrooms and laundry room were beautiful. Apparently no wifi at this time. The park is gated and very quiet. More sites and a swimming pool are being added. - JoyceM

This is a brand new RV resort East of Nashville on Percy Priest Lake and it is absolutely beautiful! I think they're still working on a website. You can find them on Facebook (including additional reviews). We stayed for one week in October of 2016. There was ongoing construction as more sites are being added and pool area is being finished but it is away from the completed sites and not an interference. Everything should be completed by Spring of 2017. The entire resort will be closed Dec/Jan/Feb. About 75% of the sites (the completed section) are on a narrow finger of land jutting into the lake. Sites are either on the lake or one row back. The view is spectacular. The reservation and check-in process were easy. The staff was super friendly (even printed our concert tix on their printer when we were in a pinch). Neighbors were wonderful. Hook-ups worked perfectly. Verizon cell and Sprint Mifi worked well. We were able to obtain DirecTV signal. It's a lovely place to be. We didn't want to leave and are already discussing when we can return! - GottaGoNow

42' 5er. Very tight turns and roads. If you are not comfortable driving a larger unit, stay out. Cedar trees and more cedar trees. Large area behind the campground to run dogs. Bathrooms old and need updating, just clean enough. No sewer, most sights are not level. Good park for kiddos. Safe. - On the way

Park is about 7 miles off I-40 and not easy to find. Address on website will not take you there. We called and got a good address. Sites are small and close. Several tight turns getting in and out. Trees show damage from RV scrapes. No sewer, wifi. Over air tv is adequate. Very quiet and dark at nite. Good little campground for a few days. Will stop here again. - Bojangles

Cute little state park with lots of hiking available. We stayed in Campground 1. Sites were VERY close together, and given that, we would probably try Campground 2 the next time we visit. Lots of trees made the sites nice and shady. Dump station serving Campground 1 and 2. The bathhouse is old and needs upgrading and maintenance, but the site was $20 and there is no park entry fee, so you get what you pay for. Our site claimed to be level, but in fact was slightly angled; nothing some leveling blocks couldn't fix, just don't trust the descriptions on the website entirely. We'll be back to explore more trails! - CBird

Received 10% Good Sam discount. With tax ended at $46/night. We stayed one week during "Halloscream". The water park was closed. Halloscream only runs weekends and Halloween night and ends about 10pm. Although we could somewhat hear it, it didn't bother us. In sites 20-25 (for example), I'll bet it could be quite annoying. If the water park was open, I'm sure sites 44-74 would be VERY noisy. However, if you or your family is into water parks, you'd love this CG. I thought I'd give my observation on some site-specific issues realizing others may see things differently. If you are 36' plus, it's going to be particularly tight getting into sites 20-25. It's do-able but you need to be confident in your backing ability. If you're 40' plus, I recommend sites 1-9 or 61-74 so you have breathing room to maneuver. If you want a simple overnight without disconnecting, take sites 51-61 for easier in/out. Sites 62-74 would be second choice. As for satellite signal assuming your dish is on the front of your coach, sites 51-61 don't really have trees. Back-in sites 1-9 have trees in back but, generally speaking, your dish in front should be clear. Sites 62-74 have trees on the front-end which might block a signal. There are a few other site issues to be aware of (sites to avoid if possible). Sites 55 and 56 have a sizable utility panel and power pole between the sites. Sites 51, 72 and 73 have big, weird concrete pillars which could really impact your turning. sites). Even though we had a pull-thru, we hooked/unhooked at the office just to have more breathing room. Be careful and don't be afraid to ask for help (guys I'm talking to you!). In conclusion, we enjoyed our stay. Staff was professional and friendly. Hook-ups worked well. The lake is pretty. The location to various Nashville attractions is great. We'd stay here again but not if the water park was open. - GottaGoNow

This is the noisiest park we've stayed at, with neighbors playing their outdoor speakers all evening; no one seems to be running the place. Cable TV was out; WiFi at office only. - JBL

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

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

This is a smaller, pleasant campground that the new owners have made a lot of improvements to. Check in was friendly and efficient and they have a nice camp store. The short term stay sites are pull-through of various lengths and levelness and with full hookups. Some are very shady and some are open. The bathrooms/showers and laundry room have been updated and are clean and modern. There are very large areas for exercising a large dog. The sites are gravel/dirt and fairly close together but also have a fire ring and picnic table. The interior roads are also gravel. It is close to I-40 but was quiet at night. They also have a small and reasonably priced storage lot. We will continue to stay here when visiting relatives in the area. - JoyceM

This was an overnight stop for us on our way west. This is an old and not updated CG. The roads are tight and narrow as are the sites. The class A next to us had to wait for us to leave in the morning in order for him to get out. It was very close to the highway, but not all that easy to get to. Yes, plenty of road noise. I will try to chose another campground if I come this way again. - SchnoodleCamp

The trip off the highway to the campground caused damage to the paint of our RV and also whacked our antenna by low hanging branches. The road is extremely narrow and an oncoming truck made it more difficult to avoid the bushes with no shoulder.
Separated from I 40 by a thin strip of trees, the noise at the campground wasn't as bad as it could have been. The pool is right in front along with a few cabins and the main office and store and lovely landscaping. The sign for Parking for the Boss took us by surprise. The boss should be content to park on the back sixty if it means there's more room for customers.
The road to the sites is narrow. The sites couldn't be more socked in. We were worried about getting out in the morning but a kind neighbor pulled her truck out of the way for us. Many sites have more than one vehicle which added to the chaos.
Lovely outbuildings and pool. Extremely family-friendly. Lots of very happy appearing kids and their parents. Surrounded by rolling hills.
Surprisingly, we had a quiet night, but once morning came, it was time to get out of there. - nickypoo
