Overly expensive for what was offered. WiFi for us was fairly slow. For the price, when signing in they should offer suggestions as to what to see and do and what hiking trails are available, etc. The site we had was not a premium site. Those sites were at additional costs. In our experience KOA corporate sites are always more expensive. They had the opening when we needed it, however. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very happy with this park. Easy access to attractions, we stayed a week. The camp was well maintained and had plenty of amenities. Laundry was clean and spacious, several machines,so no waiting. The pool was nice and clean. We were told that it would be upgraded soon, but what they have now is nice and maintained well. There is a small dog park that was clean and big enough for our 30 pound puggle to play in. Camp store well stocked, although it closes early. (6-7 p.m.) Our site, I11, was nicely landscaped and spacious. Easy to get into with our 36'travel trailer. Electric, water, cable and WiFi all worked consistently well. Staff was courteous and accommodating. Bathhouse was clean and well maintained. Older part of campground also seemed to have spacious sites, although we were also told that most sites will be upgraded in the near future. Ours was part of the recent upgrade. We were very happy with the accommodations here and will definitely stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed three nights. This campground is what every KOA strives to be. Great sites, great utilities and friendly employees. My only problem was a large tree as you turn into the site. We came very close to creasing our Coach, but with a little maneuvering, we made it. WiFi is excellent, but will kick you off after a few minutes of inactivity. Park is very clean with curbside trash pickup. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Camping world is very close as well as some great restaurants. If you are going to Nashville , give this park some consideration. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We only stayed one night, but I would be happy to be here for a week or more. Paved roads and pads, long pull throughs, wifi worked great, nice landscaping. Lots of retail nearby to take care of whatever you need. We'll be back the next time we're in Nashville. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly service, paved level sites, big rig friendly, and close to all the Opryland attractions/ What is there not to like? Nothing! This is a definite stay-again place. I stayed in the Deluxe Patio Pull-through; great space for the length of the rig (35' + crew cab dually) and width with the quad slides. Plenty of room between neighbors! Yes, the deluxe is the most expensive and it was a holiday weekend, but it was well worth the price for the upgraded furniture that seated six, space around the RV, and location. I love the shuttle that ran between the camp and downtown between 11 AM and midnight. There is also a small cafe on site. Plenty of restaurants, shopping, RV repairs, and a Camping World within a mile of the camp. The bathrooms & showers were immaculate even with the campgrounds totally booked (Memorial Day weekend). Great dog playground and kids playground. The front of the campground does have mild noise from the interstate when I stepped outside, which is to be expected due the location; however, when I walked to the back of the campground, I hardly heard the interstate. Overall, one of the best stays I've ever had in 16 years of RVing! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you haven't been to this park since the remodel and new sites you won't believe how nice a KOA this is. New roads, new super sites, new patio furniture, fire pits, etc. Absolutely great for big rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Vastly improved with big new sites with patios. Very well maintained and great friendly staff. This was a KOA designed in the 1970s, and it has been upgraded to 2014 deluxe standards. Only negative was awful WiFi. If they can get this fixed, would be a solid 10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
On the plus side, our paved full-hookup site was level and adequate to accommodate our 40' coach with toad. On the other hand, we were somewhat disappointed to find that we did not have an outdoor wood stove, as we were given to believe when we booked our stay. Also, we found the exit signage at this park to be lacking, which caused a minor problem as we attempted to get out of the park. But the bottom line (for us) is that this park is way, way, way too expensive for what you get. We won't be returning to the Nashville KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and spacious park for an urban area. Construction is complete and park is in beautiful condition with showers, individual bath houses, and common areas all in great shape. Several play areas for kids and no problem parking or exiting. Shuttles to downtown are very convenient and tours are readily available each day. Office staff is only possible area of improvement as previous poster is accurate in description. Overall a good experience - we love Nashville and this is the best park to stay albeit the price is high. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sign above the office staff should say, "We care...but not that much." Confused reservations and construction in progress we should have known about. Good Verizon 4G signal, good water pressure, acceptable WiFi, got a good Dish signal, and convenient location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Busy place. Some new construction taking place. Easy in and easy out. Our paved pad was close to level. All hook-ups worked well. We stayed one night as we were headed home and didn't realize how close this park is to all of Nashville's music area. We plan to make sure to stop here again and investigate Nashville more then we had time for this time. I strongly suggest making a reservation as we did not see many empty RV sites even in a cold, rainy March. Lots to do in and around this KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are three campgrounds on Music Valley Dr. This one is the best of the three. They are still working on updating the sites. The section we stayed in had fresh new asphalt pads. It is close to the highway, so lots of truck noise, but we run a fan, so not an issue when sleeping. There is a shuttle service to the downtown area for $10. Might try that the next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent upgrades to this park. Replacing of sites and roads. Trees trimmed. New wireless towers provide excellent service. Cable a little weak. Some sites not level. Beautiful pool. Consolidated some sites to provide more space between units. This campground is to be commended for these excellent upgrades. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at the other Opry area campgrounds so decided to give this one a try. Very helpful staff; they were crowded due to construction taking out some sites and a large group. They drove me around to find a site I liked that could get satellite reception. 24 hour laundry was helpful when our dog got sick on a blanket. Roads were being repaved and were a bit rough due to the construction. Wi-Fi worked great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was cold when here, like upper 20s so were not outside much. All the hookups worked great. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable but, my questions were not hard. Some of the staff was "young" and they were still a pleasure to deal with. It's a significant drive to the nightclubs like Tootsie's or Ryman. I guess I should have researched that further but, it worked out because I had a car. It was a easy drive to see Jackson's estate (Hermitage), I recommend you go there if into history. Wife is picky on showers and she was happy with these. Apparently some sales lot uses this place to store RV's because there were many parked but not hooked up. Insignificant point really but, I laughed when I realized why it was so quiet with so many sites "occupied". All my RV experience is out west where there are no trees or "wetness" so it was a bit of a culture shock here but, would like to come again when its warmer. They have what looks like a well stocked store. This KOA was a pleasant stay for my 2 nights. It's close to freeway but, since it was winter, I didn't notice much noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although pricey this campsite has everything you want - great WiFi, pet park, propane sales, cabins, picnic areas, clubhouse and event area plus restaurant and small shop. All sites are solid surface and level mostly with full hook ups. They are in the process of upgrading a section of the park, and everyone was crammed into the remaining sites so it appeared congested. On our return leg, we camped in the north section (behind Camping World) and had a bit more space and green area to walk the dogs. It's located in a perfect location for Opryland etc. But as with most KOA's the sites are close together. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although this is the most expensive site we ever stayed in, it was worth it. The sites are the longest and widest we have ever stayed in. They have lots of cabins of all sizes and everyone had fire pits and BBQ's, even at the RV sites. There is a large pool and a couple of different playgrounds, ground chess and checker boards even grass bowling lanes. Very quiet with friendly staff and lots of squirrels. Shuttles go back and forth to downtown and tours are available. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed there October 2012 and 2013 and very good campground. Shuttle tours right at your door. Everything is cleaned, staff friendly. We are always using the P section which gives you long and wide sites. For motorhomes (A). Nice small dog park where they can be off-leash a little bit. Near all attractions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great RV park. The section we were in did not have cable television hookups. No one in my section could find out why. It seems to me that it should be in the whole park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites we were on (row K) were a little tight and in poor condition! However, one of the workers told us the section was due to renovation starting shortly. The park was clean, staff was friendly. KOA is not one of our regular parks, but we would stay in this one again, because it is convenient to Nashville attractions! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is in an excellent location. It provides a shuttle that takes you to downtown Nashville. Has a restaurant in walking distance, a dog park to let the pups stretch their legs, and plenty for the kids. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate includes the KOA discount. According to the KOA website we were expecting a free breakfast. The office denied the free breakfast because we didn't register for it when we booked our reservations over 3 months prior. Lots were tight. The grass was not maintained in occupied sites. Our grass was 6 inches tall in the general area and about 12 inches tall around hookups. There was a hole on our lot which we twisted our ankles on as it was covered by the tall grass. An employee did occasionally mow sections of the park, but never occupied sites. Sites are not cleaned between rentals. They have renovated some new sites with more space to them, but the hookups are out by the street. These are back in sites - meaning you would need over 40 ft of sewer, electric, water, and cable lines. We asked it they furnished the needed extensions, but were told you need to buy them. During the day, they run a road sweeper through throwing dust all over their guests. Location is great for Nashville activities. We would not stay here again, due to lack of maintenance. We would probably select an adjacent RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived at the campground on Wednesday June 5th at around 4pm for the CMA Music Festival weekend. I booked this site back in December and I knew the campground would probably be fully booked. I booked a back in site with full hook-ups including cable tv (30 amps). Upon arrival, I was greeted by a very friendly guest representative. Upon giving my name, I was told that my site would not be available due to construction in the campground. The clerk informed me she would try to find me another site. I was told all that was available was a site with no cable and that my tow vehicle may not fit due to it being a shorter site than I had reserved. I was also told, "There also was a water main break sir, so that water is not working and we dont know when it will come back on." I was then asked "would that be ok?" Knowing nothing else in the entire area would be available, I had no choice. I asked if I was going to receive anything for this inconvenience and I was told I would get a 25% discount. Upon arrival to the site, I was able to fit my 34 foot camper and extended cab truck on the site with approximately 1 foot of space to play with. The water came on approximately 1 hour after my arrival and worked fine the rest of the weekend. The power tripped on my pedestal 7 times during my 5 day stay. One time the whole section I was staying in was out of power. I called the office and they had the problem fixed in approximately 15 minutes. I would assume this was occurring due to the fact that many rvs including the rv that was hooked into the pedestal as mine, were 50 amp plugs using an adapter because they weren't placed on the sites that they had reserved either. They were having to use 30 amp plug ins. The area we were in wasn't made to be using that much power. This campground had a great location. It was easy to get on and off the highway. It has many great restaurants close by. There were two other campgrounds right next store they may have been better options. We were able to still have a very enjoyable vacation but for as much as these campsites cost, they should provide everything that is stated when reserving. I also felt if my site was under construction, I should have received a phone call to advise me of such so that I could have made other arrangements. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was the worst KOA I have stayed at. The majority of their pull throughs were very short for a 40 foot RV and not enough space to park a car behind it, so most people were squeezing their toads into the narrow roads. There was not much space in between RV's either. The employees at KOA's are usually very friendly and helpful, but not here. There is lots of deferred maintenance in this park. Their asphalt roads need work and a small amount of trash and cigarette butts cover the park. The dog park has agility obstacles, but they are falling apart and are dangerous for dogs. The worst part is the construction noise going on in a section of the park. They started way too early on a Saturday and Sunday. They park was overpriced for what you get. I would stay at either of the other two campgrounds close by. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our assigned site was really too small for a 38 ft MH. We were directly across from a new area under construction that would have been a real deal breaker if not for the fact that it rained most of our stay and it was too wet for the construction work to progress. Site drainage is poor as others have noted. Our slides encroached onto adjacent site - nothing we could do about it. Trees impacted where we could park on the site. If we ever go here again, it will have to be one of the larger "patio" sites or not at all. Price way too high for the quality of what we got. Yes the CG is very convenient to Grand Ole Opry, so that is a big plus We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large park right along Music Boulevard and immediately next door to Camping World. Very long pull through sites available, most are fairly level. Several were being repaved as they were too off level for auto leveling. We had to make several unsuccessful attempts and ended up moving to another site where we leveled on first try. MUCH to do in the area. Staff was a little slow to respond to one of our needs but eventually did. We would stay here again when in Nashville. The convention center is absolutely a must see offering great places to shop and dine. Great city. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Way too expensive. Rude staff. Massive construction going on to turn it into a trailer park. Horribly noisy all day and filthy dirty. Bathrooms are gross. Kiddy pool dirty. Covered area by pool had filthy tables. The grill by the pool was the dirtiest I think I have ever seen. Patio sites are overgrown weed patches. Wi-Fi is iffy. This is corporate owned. I tried to contact them. They referred me to local manager. He told me he has no authority to do anything. Complete waste of time. We will never be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This KOA is one of the worst we have stayed in, little wonder it was available when other RV parks in the same area were full. The price is too high for the condition of the park. Our coach site is paved but has mud puddles in and along it, raining or not. The site is level enough to easily level the coach. We were put in a site that barely fits our 36 ft coach and we have to park our car parallel to the road and partially on the grass and we still encroach in the travel path. The park appears to assign sites randomly without regard to what length rig is going in. The sites are extremely close and our neighbors slides are "on our side." The patio sites appear to be better but you have to negotiate the dense pack to get to the patio sites. People have trouble getting in and out of sites. This KOA does not escort rigs in to ensure parking is done properly. Trees located at the front of the site and rigs and cars parked in front of our street prevented us from exiting out as a "pull through." Luckily we were able to back out of our site. The picnic table is peeling. There is litter around the park in spite of workers driving around in a KOA truck. The sewer connection is not threaded, located in a low spot with a chain attached to find the plug and it all was covered by debris. The only reason we found the connection was because there was a broken masonry block covering it which was necessary to use to hold the sewer hose in the sewer connection. Cable is good. Water flow is low although the pressure is pretty good. It rained and you cannot go out without totally soaking your feet because the drainage is so poor. We will choose another park if we ever return to this area. Price reflects KOA discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed for 5 days. Had a patio site which was perfect for a large RV. Building and grounds were well taken care of. Excellent location for visiting the Nashville area and attractions. Some road noise (mostly cars) from highway 155. They are upgrading an older section that will have larger pull though sites. Expect to have done sometime this summer. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Older KOA, if you are in an upgrade patio site, it is nice. If not, you will be sandwiched in as tight as I've ever seen. Worst WiFi I've encountered in 4 years. Very helpful and professional staff. Good location nearby Grand Old Opry. Shuttle to downtown available for a fee. They are in the process of expanding, and perhaps this will improve the park. But, of the three campgrounds in the area I prefer it if you can get a patio site, or the larger sites in rows L, N, & P. Otherwise I'd pass if you have a big rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here in the Fall of 2012 and loved the park but something seems to have changed since our last visit. The park doesn't seem to be as well maintained as it was then. The Wifi was terrible.........the connection was hard to get and kept disconnecting. Our site was considered a luxury site but for $71.00 a night, it was very over priced for what we got. It was a narrow site with big rigs on both sides of us and the site itself was not in good condition. The offer garbage pick-up at the site every morning before 10am which was nice. The staff were friendly. We would probably stay here again but not for a long stay and we definitely wouldn't pay for a luxury site again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The Nashville KOA is still undergoing repairs so sites may be limited. The office staff is mostly younger but they are enthusiastic and helpful. Some of the turns may be tight for very big rigs. This is a typical KOA however with VERY TIGHT SITES. You really get to know your neighbor, what they eat and their tastes in entertainment. If going into Nashville, leave the car and take Jerry's shuttle. Inexpensive and reliable, call and they will pick you up and give you tips on entertainment, dining etc. In Nashville, consider DEMO's for dinner. One of the best values I have ever found. The Segway tour is also worth considering. Enjoy your stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park with all the right amenities and easy access. The bathhouses were fantastic, store was fully stocked, sites are level and have several different options for all kinds of RV travelers and campers. Park was not full, and campground staff provided us with a free upgraded site which was not necessary but well received. Roads on the exit can be a little tight for a big rig with overhanging trees but it was not a problem for us. Great access to downtown Nashville and the area sights. Definitely coming back. We stayed here for three nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here two years ago right after a major modernization of the park. In the two years since somethings have been neglected. The park is currently partly closed for new construction. In the showers, while still clean, it was obvious that the repairs made were not the best quality. The staff was mostly young, but friendly. Most of the open sites are paved and easy to park. The price at a KOA, and this one is no exception, is a little high in comparison other parks. With that said, we usually stay here because of location and because of a disastrous situation stay at another local park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Basic KOA. Older park with some very tight spaces. We stayed in a premium site that was a paved pull through. Interior roads are narrow but our 40' was OK. The park is apparently undergoing a major upgrade so hopefully it'll be better next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is by far, the nicest KOA we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in lots of them. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We stayed for 6 nights and were there for Thanksgiving and the park hosted a free, turkey supper for all the campers in the park. Nice touch! The park is clean and well maintained and the lots are quite large. There was daily garbage pick-up at each site and the Wi-Fi was good. The park is centrally located to all the attractions. You can take a GrayLine Tour from the park, downtown to see the Grand Ole Opry and the other attractions. We would definitely recommend this park and we will come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the most expensive campground we have stayed at. We had a long pull through site in an open area so it was satellite friendly. The campground roads are narrow and in pretty bad shape. Fire pits had trash in them. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our rate reflects the KOA discount and some points that were applied. Downtown shuttle is available from a private source to take campers into Nashville for $10 per person round trip. Wi-Fi was free and TengoNet but really only worked for one day. This is a 4G area. We will stay here in the future since we feel this is the best of the three available campgrounds in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here a week. Rate reflects weekly special rate. We LOVED this campground. So close to everything. Our site was under the trees and level. The nuts dropping on the top sorta drove our cats nuts but we didn't mind it. The dog loved watching the squirrels all day. We did a lot of sight seeing in Nashville and surrounding area. We also stayed at the campground for a day or so. Very relaxing. Would definitely stay again and again. Nice laundry and staff was very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here based on the reviews found here. The pull thoughs were long and provided plenty of space. You are really close to Grand Ole Oprey and the outlets. The staff was very friendly and provided information when we needed it. The dog run was great for our goldens. We camped here 2 nights and will definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this campground and always stay here. The staff is excellent. It is in the middle of all the Opry activities and minutes from downtown Nashville. Well maintained and kept up. Our relatives stayed in one of their lodges. Also excellent. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly staff. Site was level and in a nice, quiet side of the park. It was disturbing at first to have acorns dropping on the RV roof all night, but after five days we were used to it. Great cable TV selections and OK, sometimes spotty, internet. Taking into account that this place is located in a popular city, it is still a little spendy. It was nice they had propane on site as we drained our tank trying to stay warm. It takes driving a little farther down the road to get to this park beyond the other two choices - but it is worth the extra effort. You can also get to attractions such as the Opry Mills, Gaylord Hotel, and the Grand Ol' Opry faster by turning left out of the driveway and going the back way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Used and abused. For the price you would think they would update the park but it seems that they "take the money and run". Roads are narrow, very narrow and falling apart. Sites are on top of each other and a lot of trees. I guess when you have a captive audience you don't need to do anything to make the guest's want to come back. It could be a nice RV Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The site they placed us in was muddy. Some type of nuts kept falling from the tree onto our RV all night long. The price was way too high for the value. The sites are so close together that you are literally on top of each other. We were very dissatisfied and will not be staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place needs a face lift. The sites look old and run down. Restrooms in main facility were very nice but the ones out in the park are YUK! Old worn and not operational. I would definitely check out one of the other two camp grounds right next door. I won't be going back to this KOA. I asked to be put right next to the showers and each morning I had to walk about 20 spaces to the shower only to find all the sites around the shower building were empty. When I told the employee he apologized and said I could move it I wanted to. Laundry very good. They just need to clean up the camp sites and remodel the bath/showers and this place could be up to the expected KOA standard. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice park with a lot of amenities, including a dog park. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is quite a difference in the older sections in back and the newer 50 amp pull-throughs out front. The newer sites are large and modern. The downside is they are near the road which can be quite noisy. For location, it is worth the price and a little noise. Be aware though, it could get really busy for sporting events and other special events. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are almost speechless about this wonderful KOA. The staff was so friendly and helpful, the restrooms extremely clean and updated, pool and grounds immaculate! The inside rec room had a pool table, ping pong tables, juke box, Wii, TV and nice furniture for eating, playing games are lounging. Outside had tons of fun things to do like giant chess and checkers, horseshoes, ladder golf, tether ball, basketball, etc. We didn't bring our toad to save on gas, but a shuttle is available everyday (but Sunday) for $10 round trip to Music Row. You are next door to Camping World for any emergency items you may need or repairs, and just enough off the highway where it is peaceful. Our site was a little small, but they are due for 2 million in upgrades, including enlarging their RV sites and adding a hot tub in the pool area. We had an AWESOME time and will be back! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
As of last night, we have stayed in all three of the parks on Music Valley Rd. Of the three, we prefer the Nashville KOA. Although, we only spend one night, we found the park to be very clean, well maintained, with good signage and activities for grandchildren. However, when I made the reservation I requested site L-7, I confirmed this site yesterday on the way in. Unfortunately, we were redirected to site P-1. This site is on the end of the aisle and very hard to get into with the street pole and electric hook-up so close to the sharp turn. Perhaps, the office could put a note on the map to back in and not attempt to pull in. This is our campground of choice and look forward to returning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Despite the appearances when we first pulled in (pool, yard chess and checkers, etc) we became somewhat disillusioned after got settled in. For the rate we paid you would expect more and roads filled with pot holes. Entry roads that had the trees trimmed rather than scratching the side of your rig. Wi-fi and Verizon signal were strong and reliable. Staff was friendly and helpful including escort to site. Lower rating based upon cost benefit and bad roads. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, close to many area attractions. Spaces are a bit tight, but not too bad. Plenty of shade and the pool is nice. Utilities were good and Wi-Fi worked well. This campground does charge extra for children, which I think is a ridiculous practice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great RV park if you are looking for a place near Nashville. They have a Greyline bus service that will pick you up from the park and take you to downtown, although we did not use this service. The pool is large and there is nice new poolside chairs and umbrellas. The doggie play yard could use some updating and lighting at night, but otherwise was nice to let our dog run around in the fenced area. Upgraded sites are further apart, standard sites are close together, but we chose to upgrade to give us space. I would recommend this park and would stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful staff they go out of their way for you. Very clean campground w/beautiful pool. Shuttle into downtown Nashville comes right to campground. Wish I could've stayed longer! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There is a lot to like about this park: the rec center with 2 ping pong tables, a pool table, nice pool and kiddie shallow pool. Nice grounds with lots of nice grass for ball games, basketball hoops. Our site (we got to pick it ourselves) was almost level, shady and near the showers. We got the "Value site" rate of $35+tax which is very good for Nashville and this level of amenities. Bad stuff: gorgeous new showers that are stupidly designed with no dry place to get dressed and no seating except outside the shower and very public. When you turn on the shower the dressing area is flooded even with the shower curtain closed. It's sad to see good money spent on bad design. It takes a balancing act to get dressed after showering and older folks will just not be able to do it. Heck i couldn't do it and I'm 50-something. If the showers had been good (not stupid) I'd rate the park a 10 so if you don't plan on using the showers you'll like it here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are very close together with little room to sit outside and enjoy the weather. There are a lot of trees for shade for the hot summer days. The roads to the sites are small with vehicles parked sometime very close to the road. The staff very nice and quite helpful. The park was clean and organized. Wi-Fi available and worked on my site. Close to downtown and the Opry. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We came to Nashville to spend some time enjoying the sights and visiting with old friends. We found this park poor in many areas. First, we were placed on a site that we were told was for monthly stays. We found that those in this area were permanent residents and construction workers in the area. Also we were less than 100 yards from construction next to the campground. Every morning about 4:30 am several workers in the park started their loud trucks and motorcycles. About 6:00 am, the construction with heavy equipment starts directly behind us. Not bad if you are an early riser. The park had many empty sites in other areas that would have been much quieter. This could be that the staff is young and has not been train properly to deal with the public. Secondly, Wi-Fi was very poor. The signal strength showed only one bar most of the time. However the campground about a quarter mile away showed signal strength of five bars. Thirdly, water pressure in the showers was extremely poor, to non-existent. We would not recommend this park. There are other parks in the immediate area that could provide better service. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nothing special for the high price, but I do understand it's a major tourist area. I liked the cheap shuttle that went to the Oprey or downtown. Office staff very nice. Grounds kind of sloppy around the RV. Had a lot of rain at night which made a horrible muddy mess all around the RV. If I ever went back to Nashville, I would try a different campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pretty nice park, due to the close proximity to Nashville attractions. People were friendly, I was allowed to pick our site, we chose the last row back in sites because they were larger, but also cheaper. I saw the large patio sites, very pretty. You would have to book early because there are only 6 of those. Wifi was ok, cable good. The clubhouse was huge very nice. Landscaping in back of park was not as nice as front grass had not been cut. We stayed 3 nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Typical KOA - overpriced and close. We were there for the night life so basically just parked and slept. Close to town and attractions. Utilities good, tree covered, no satellite. Cable was good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a typical big fairly well maintained KOA. The KOA employees are very friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers were fine. I think they could have used a bit more gravel in places but they had a lot of rain to contend with. The sites were easy to get in and out of. They pick up your garbage each day. It was fine for dogs. I have only given it a 7 because the site itself just did not have a cozy and nice feel to it. It was a little narrow, a little old ( gravel and picnic table) and just did not feel so much like you were camping as you were parking. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is truly one of the nicest KOA parks we've stayed in. The premium patio sites are long enough for big rigs and tow vehicle. Internet worked well and they are still doing improvements from the flood. Interior roads are a bit bumpy but they ARE paved. Of the three parks on music valley drive we always choose the KOA because the others have a tendency to flood in the rain and do not have concrete pads. Good laundry facility, nicely stocked store and very friendly folks working there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 2 nights and found it convenient to touring around Nashville. Unlike others we found the staff helpful and friendly. Sites were close like most KOAs but was adequate for our needs. Wi-Fi and cable TV were both good. Also saw a lot of maintenance being done to grounds while we were here. Rate reflects KOA discount. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large park with some lingering interior road damage from 2010 flood in older sections. New patio sites are big rig friendly but pricey. Lots of room to walk your dog and a leash-free enclosed dog area is a nice touch. Close to Nashville and the Opry. Bus and van shuttles to downtown and various tours are available daily, so you can relax and leave the driving to someone else. We've stayed here twice in the last year in a 45' Quad-Slide coach while towing - 65' overall. Pull-throughs in new section were long enough and comfortable in & out. Showers and restrooms are new since flood and very clean. Will always stay here while in Nashville because of the location and amenities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with the previous comments this park looks good at the entrance, but terrible sites messy yards, the roads are patchy. The gentleman that brought us to our site just drove to the site and waved and left, no help getting straight on our site. We paid $60 which I thought is expensive for what you are getting. I did notice that the Kamping Lodges are really nicely done.The Wi-Fi was a nightmare to try to get on and it is only for 1 day, so I will probably have to go through that nightmare again. We usually stay at Two Rivers down the road, its cheaper and much nicer, but they did not answer the phone when we tried to call a number of times. I did notice a sign at JellyStone for $30 fall special. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well located park for Nashville attractions. Grand Old Opry is no more than 10 minutes away. Downtown is 15 minutes away. (Ask for best directions at the office.) That said, the park is just so-so. Paved sites are rough with many patches and mud on some sites. Grass between sites is scraggly with holes or depressions that can cause you to stumble. Park looks good as you drive in and around the pool and kiddie areas, but deteriorates in the camping area. Did not use bathrooms so can't comment on them. Voltage dropped to 108 in 98 degree weather with the park half full. Water pressure, sewer, and cable TV good. Staff in office helpful. If coming in hot weather request a shady site. We chose a site well away from the highway and had minimal noise. Note there are some 85' long pull thrus practically adjacent to the 6 lane highway and would be loud. Music hall ran 3 nights during our stay but we heard no noise. Verizon cell and air card worked well. Our $60 site was just long enough for our 40' rig and car at 65'. Price is high for what you get, but they get it because of closeness to attractions. Very few kids during our mid-week stay after school started. We would return to this park, but those with kids might also want to investigate the Yogi Bear nearby. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The previous reviews are correct in that the front entrance of the park looks like a true RV resort. The staff is friendly and the pool is lovely. However, unless you rent one of the "patio" sites at $69 a night or one of the extra long sites at $64 a night, the sites are terrible. The streets, although paved, have huge holes in them and many of the sites are not level. They also are crammed together. The location is fabulous. It's a shame, however, that a park wanting to maintain a KOA reputation for a resort park, does not upgrade its streets and sites. The only sites that have been upgraded are the extraordinarily expensive sites--and there only are about eight of those. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Had to get premium site because of low availability. Would have been happy with a regular site. But all in all, worth the money. Very nice staff, super nice office, store, game room and laundry. My husband and I hadn't played ping pong in years: we really enjoyed it and the free jukebox. Had pool tables, TV area, arcade, card tables plus lots of games for kids to do outside. We could really picture bringing our grandkids and never leaving the campground. Had a 50's/60's band that played on Wednesday nights that we really enjoyed. Close to a lot of attractions including the Opry. Would love to come again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yes, it's fairly over-rated and pricy, but in general, it's a nice park. The check in is great with a nice parking area. Some of the sites are VERY narrow and the sewer is waaaaaay at the rear of the sites which hampered our attempts to dump while our motorhome was towing our car. The pool area is nice with a small splash pool for the kiddos. We DO wish they would have a hot tub, at least for what they charge!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites were not very long but well maintained. This KOA has a Kamp K9 which was gated and well maintained. This was a big plus in our book. The staff was very friendly. The store was super clean and well stocked. There were tons of activities for everyone. There are tours that can be taken from the front office to see various parts of Nashville. The Santa Fe Cattle Company Steakhouse located up the road was recommended to us by the girl in the front office, and it was the best steak I have had in a long time. A must stop if you want great food. The bathroom & private showers were clean and well maintained. It was close from the highway and near lots of attractions. There is a large indoor Mall being built which will open in 2012 just minutes away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 3 nights. It was beautiful, clean and friendly staff. This campground is close to everything, and we would definitely camp here again. Definitely big rig friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As many people have noted in the past the pull through sites are narrow and short in length. Site we occupied was level side to side and front to back. Campground was clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would consider staying here is in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were at an American Coach Rally in Memphis Tennessee earlier in the week and we decided to leave there a day early to be able to spend some time in Nashville. This KOA is not too far off the highway and was very easy to get to. Check in was quite quick and we had a deluxe pull thru site which was very nice. They also had a patio set out on the concrete pad as well. Very roomy campground and the staff was very helpful. There were shuttles available to downtown as well as tours picked you up right at the front doors so it is very convenient. We would like to return to Nashville again soon and would definitely return to this KOA We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a lovely park but ridiculously expensive, especially when the pool wasn't open yet. We could not have stayed here without gift certificates. All the staff is very friendly and helpful. We were led to our site, and as others have said everything is new except for the interior roads. We appreciated the immaculate, cement block restrooms nearby with all the storms in the area. There is some road noise, but we were the third lot from Music Valley Drive and slept fine. Soft sides would want a back site. There is a lounge with pool and ping pong tables and printed information to show local groceries, etc. Verizon cell, cable TV, and WiFi worked fine. There is a nice playground, pet area, group fire pit, and the cabin section had grills and patio chairs. This is definitely the nicest park of the three in a row, and since we need full hook-ups for multiple day stays to see family, we will probably return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
$70 for the area, for us we would say it is an overnighter only. WiFi very good connection. Employees are very young and DO try to please. We used it for overnighting. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground had numerous items in it's favor such as location, friendly staff, and large pull-through sites for motorhomes. We were quoted higher rates for the weekend nights online, but we were later told by one of the staff that the rate should be the same every night. We were able to negotiate not being charged the $4 per night increase for the weekend nights. We found out upon our arrival that the additional fee was for the Easter weekend activities that included a breakfast. The staff was great, but the breakfast was awful. If they continue to charge an increased camping fee for such a perk, then they should really do better than a small household griddle and undercooked pancakes with cold syrup. Since we didn't pay the $8 weekend assessment, we didn't voice our dissatisfaction to the chef. The Wi-Fi was pathetically slow when it worked and we could only get access the first day. We could see the signal (weak) but couldn't connect the next two days. We were located very close to the office in the premium, pull through spaces. We were blasted on our last night here by the horrendous thunderstorms the damaged much of the southeast. The campground hosts came by in the evening and individually notified all campers of the risk and advice to take cover. We appreciated their concern and professionalism. We are frequent KOA campers and would definitely stay here again, but would again question any fee variation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, helpful escort service to site. Concrete pad but grass patio. You will hear some traffic on the expressway. Cable service excellent. Wi-fi free and worked pretty well most of the time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second stay at Nashville KOA in the last six months. As before, the restrooms, showers, and all other facilities were very clean. The staff was very friendly. If there is any reason for not giving the part a 10 it is because the roads are just a little tight. With many pull through sites, getting in was not a real problem. The greater concern is leaving as you pull out of the sites. Just take it slow and watch for the trees. We will use this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We're a new fulltiming family of 9, and this was our first stop. We arrived late, after the office was closed, but they left a CG map with our site marked and a path outlined. Staff is very friendly, and the site is in good condition as they continue to recover from the 2010 floods. Roads still need repair, but the CG is in pretty good shape. Good water pressure. WiFi steady through Tengo Internet. Very close to the freeway, but we didn't notice the noise. We had a tornado warning one night, and the staff made a point to check all the RVs, and opened up the main building as a shelter. Good stay, and we'll stay here again if we're in the area. Rate reflects a Stay 3-Get 4th Free with a one-night extension. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the better KOA campgrounds we have stayed at through the years. Of course all the facilities are brand new, since they were under 6' of water back in May 2010. The bathrooms were spotless and warm. The pool and hot tub LOOK nice, although since we had a white Christmas, obviously we didn't use them! The cable TV was good and the Tengo Internet was the best service from Tengo we have ever had. As another reviewer noted, our Verizon MiFi card was too slow to use, but the cell service was just fine. At any rate, we had no complaints about this KOA, except for the fact that the price was seemed quite expensive. Had this been during the summer when we could use all the facilities such as the pool, etc. perhaps this wouldn't have been an issue. But for the winter it was too much. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The Office was just recently re-done, due to last years flood, gorgeous area. Very nice staff, we decided to go to the Ryman, and the gentleman who helped us, worked really hard to get us the best seats in the house, he was very accommodating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy access from the interstates. Site was high in the front but level side-to-side. Campground roads are in need of repair since the flood. Verizon cell service was adequate but we could not use our Verizon air card without a amp and booster antenna. Staff was friendly and helpful. Laundry was great as all the equipment is new and plentiful, $1.50 per wash/$1.00 to dry. You can arrange for a shuttle ($10 per person round trip) to downtown Nashville to see the sites. We would return to this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Convenient to all Nashville attractions. Staff super-friendly and courteous. Angled, level-enough sites. Good cable TV. Bathrooms/showers spotless. Would stay again; however, would book online in advance for a better rate. Reflects nightly KOA member rate with full-hookups. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very friendly staff of this well run campground. A lot of new facilities since the flood. Quiet environment and campground is well located for easy access to area's attractions. Spacious, level sites and good services. Laundry room has all new equipment and economically priced. Some sections of the interior paved roadways could use some patching which is assumed as they recover from the flood. Will stay here again when back in area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great place to camp near Nashville. The park was very clean and there was a lot to see and do near the area. Wi-Fi and cable TV was great and due to the flooding in the area, many other places did not have cable yet. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Park was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Location very convenient to Nashville and the surrounding areas. The only two negatives were the road noise from Briley Parkway but that would be the same with any of the parks along Music Road and the band that played on Thursday night, the music was louder that the highway noise and we were located next to the highway! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were campers at the Nashville KOA in May during the weekend of the flood. The hosts were unbelievably professional during such a horrible event. We returned to the Nashville KOA in September, only 4 months after the flood. The transformation is astounding. Everything in the park is brand new. The washrooms are like walking into the Ritz Carlton! They have done an incredible job restoring the campground to its present condition. We are amazed that the park and facilities are not only open, but better than ever! Staff continue to present a positive, friendly and caring atmosphere, which is very important to us. They are the kind of people who keep us coming back again and again. Bravo for the huge effort and inspiring attitude! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very large park, good location for visiting Nashville. As others have stated, this park was underwater due to floods in May 2010, and now they're open and doing well. They are still under construction as far as repair goes and the bathrooms and showers in "P" area are closed. Unfortunately the KOA office didn't explain that when we checked in, but we made do with what they did have available. WiFi was off and on, and the cable TV had many channels. We would probably stay here again but there are several other RV camps along the same road so we may check them out. KOA's tend to be a bit too pricey for us but due to construction we did get a discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. It is very convenient. It was easy to get anywhere with in a matter of a few minutes. We were given a 50% off discount due to some construction from the flood still going on. The sites are asphalt most with shade. The campground is kept very clean. They pick up trash every morning at your site which is handy. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is still recovering from the Nashville flood that significantly impacted this camp. However, this campground has made huge strides to recover! Pool is up and running, several construction sites throughout the camp, but the nearly 50% discount on the nightly charges made the slight inconveniences of the construction almost unnoticeable! We stayed here for one night while traveling through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were at this park for a trailer group rally. There was some question about the rally continuing to be at this site as they were flooded out in April (ten feet of water in some parts of the park) but they did their utmost and we were pleased with their efforts. We were not happy that we had no cable TV and only 30 amp power though. 50 amp and cable TV is only available in some areas of the park. The park staff were attentive and made our group of 125 rigs feel most welcome. The park has lots of trees, lots of cicadas, lots of fireflies, and lots of paved roads to walk the dog on. The sites were level and not too close together. Our site was a back in and it was not too difficult to maneuver into. It was easy to access from the freeways. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were escorted to our pull-through, W/E 30/20 site. Cordial staff. The big office is closed and staff is operating out of a temporary trailer office, therefore no store. I was rather disappointed in our site assigned so far from lone bathhouse and near a big NOISY road when so many, many other more desirable and close sites were empty. Lots of road noise. WiFi Tengo wouldn't work for any of us (although I had specified the need for a good WiFi site in our reservation). The free cable TV worked. We really enjoyed the beautiful pool although the lights didn't work. The truly beautiful although faraway new bathhouse was unfortunately overrun in the morning by a multitude of dirty and careless teen, tent-campers tracking in mud, rinsing sandals in sink, etc. There were many peeping frogs and very few mosquitoes in this very pretty, heavily treed campground. It had a very convenient location to the Grand Ole Opry and it was practically next-door neighbor to Camping World. We would return if we could get a site farther from the noisy road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Anyone interested in a little elbow room from their site, ought to go somewhere else. We are part of a national rally with over 120 rigs. A large # of sites have only 30 amps, some have no sewer, and the length of the sites ranges from 38' - 55'. You can not park your tow vehicle on the same site unless you park parallel to the very narrow streets. They are far less ready for campers than advertised. I will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was completely destroyed by the flood but they are rebuilding as fast as they can. The restrooms just re-opened while we were there and my goodness are they ever nice. The people in the office are extremely nice and bent over backwards to be helpful. The sites that have been able to re-open are nice but lots of road noise where we stayed. The campsite is very pet friendly and the pool area is wonderful. We will definitely stay there again. The location is wonderful but let's keep that a secret. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Other then the park being a bit pricey we had a nice site. Not able to receive satellite even though I asked for a site to do so. As I drove through the park it appeared there weren't any sites that viewed the southern sky. OK for a couple of nights stay if visiting Nashville. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our section was a bit cramped with little room between trailers, but the trees and grounds were nice. The dump was uphill and hard to drain, but other sites were better. The people in the office were especially friendly and helpful. We stayed 10 days, and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great KOA next to Camping World and other RV Parks. Nice park like setting, with friendly staff and management. Has Grey Line tours on site for local tours, or shuttle to some attractions. It is close to the Opryland complex and mall, but not to walk: probably five minutes in a car. We arranged for some service work at Camping World before we arrived, and it worked out well for us. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a friendly park with helpful employees. We stayed in a great big pull-through site. Access is easy to the park from the interstate and there is plenty of dining in this tourist area. Like all the KOAs we have stayed in, this is very kid friendly. Downtown Nashville is about 20 minutes away and easy to get to. My only complaint is the high price we paid. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place to stay close to the sights in Nashville. Good cable TV selection, good power, good water pressure. There is quite a bit of road noise from nearby Briley Parkway, which is as busy as most freeways. This park is only about 5 minutes from the Grand Ole Opry and Opry Mills (which remains closed from the May 2010 floods). Opry Mills is slated to re-open next spring (2012). If you stay here, don't miss the opportunity to eat at the Cock of the Walk restaurant. The food and atmosphere are wonderful. It is a favorite haunt of many country music stars, sports stars, etc. and with good reason. It is literally right next door to the campground. Additionally, there is a Camping World two doors down. We like staying here on the weekends and shopping, dining out, etc. It's cheaper than a hotel. The campground has been rebuilt since the May floods. Prior to that, there were several ratty looking campers in the older part of the campground that looked like they might have been here for a long while. However, everyone was very friendly and we have enjoyed every stay we've had here. Unless you get lucky enough to get one of the 'big rig friendly' sites, some of the sites of short. We had a 31' TT and had to unhook and turn the truck sideways in front of the camper in order to fit. All sites are pull through. The bath houses are clean. Daily tours depart from the CG office. Overall, I'd recommend this CG to others. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at this KOA for two nights over Christmas (after trying to stay at Jelleystone RV and being charged $50 and dealing with nastiness). This is the second time we've stayed here and we really like the park. We had a huge site. It rained a lot and there was no mud! The dog park is great. The sites were well maintained. We had a great Christmas! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I read through many of the reviews before posting, and I agree with many of the positives and negatives of this park. The KOA in Nashville is truly pricey, but you are really without options because you are paying to be in Nashville and there are only three or four parks (all virtually on the same street) from which to pick. The proximity to Opryland can't be beat (down the street), but it's a good 40 minute drive into downtown in pretty serious traffic. The park has actually improved under current ownership. The newly added dog park area is really nice and I used it frequently to give my pooches an unleashed run-around time. Also, cable TV is now available, and believe me, staying here without it a few years ago was a real drag. There are plenty of TV stations. That being said, the sites are tight and a big rig (which I drive) only fits in a standard site if you park your tow vehicle diagonally across the site either in front or in the rear of your rig. A few deluxe pull-throughs have been created and they permit rig and vehicle to park straight on. Also, it is very true that the streets in the park only allow one vehicle on the road at a time. That can be tricky, and the park tries to allow for this by making the streets one way. Problem is that the streets aren't marked, so you don't know which way the street is supposed to go unless you keep your park map with you at all times. A big issue is the proximity of the park to a highway, which is really noisy. You don't want to be parked near it. Try to park in the new section that has been opened up across from the office, which is quieter. Finally, I note that I've stayed here several times and the staff has been either terrific (the more usual) or awful. In particular, try not to interact too much with a male staff member "M", with whom I had nothing but difficulties during my most recent stay in November, 2009. He is rude and protects the live-aboards when they are misbehaving to the detriment of the casual traveler. He will also retaliate against you for lodging any sort of complaint. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are a lot of other campgrounds next to this particular KOA. I would recommend checking each one as you make your way to the KOA to find the best deal. They all have the same amenities. Certain staff members were downright rude to us and others were cheery and helpful. The pool is closed in the off-season. The gardeners were constantly making noise vacuuming the leaves. The campground itself is clean and just OK. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good access. Helpful,pleasant staff. Our site had plenty of space for slides and tow vehicle . The park provides regular evening entertainment...a nice touch which added to our enjoyment of our week at Nashville. The park is very close to Opryland. We will definitely visit Nashville again and this park will be our first choice. Good value in comparison to other parks we've stayed at We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an old KOA that needs updating. You are paying for the closeness to the new Grand Old Opry and the music hall they have on-site. One night they had free entertainment (7 people showed up); the other nights you had to pay. The showers are small and old; the shower vent was clogged with dirt and crap. True they finally installed cable because there is no way that you can get satellite TV in most of the spaces. The pull-thoughs are not long enough, unless you have a 20 ft travel trailer. The roads throughout the campground are only wide enough for one vehicle; if you meet someone going the other way you will have pull over into the grass or mud. A 40 ft motor home will barely fit on one of the regular pull-throughs, and you will have to park your toad in the mud in front of your motor home. The sites are only 10 ft wide and they make or will give you pads for your jacks because the asphalt is already cracking. There are only 9 true pull-throughs, patio sites, costing over $70 dollars a night. When we pulled into our site we ran over the sewer connection which was buried in the ground. When I hooked up the water hose and let it run a minute, rust came out of the hose. When we registered, they said they were full for the time that we stayed there. I noticed 3 other better sites that were vacant the whole time we were there. They put us in a site adjacent to the work-kampers within 100 yards from Highway 155, really noisy. You are better off to stay at one of adjacent campgrounds that are cheaper and look wider. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park, convenient to Opryland and the "Nashville experience." The lanes and spaces are very tight for big rigs: characteristic of older park design. One half of the park has cable TV and the other does not. Be sure you ask if this is important to you. A very strong Nomad wireless Internet system (many parks have a much weaker system) is a big plus. We were assigned a spot in the section without cable TV and had "live aboards" in a trailer next door getting ready to party. We asked to be moved and they found us a spot without sewer but with electric and water: and it was a great spot with lots of trees and quiet. We would return here as it's very convenient with nice amenities: pool, miniature golf, grass. Staff was also nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This ia a large campground with a lot of trees and a mix of pull through and back-in sites. It is near the highway but we did not notice any highway noise. The park was very clean throughout during our stay. The pool was quite nice and there was a free concert at the pool area during one of the evenings. The restrooms by the office were clean but quite small, especially the showers. But the restrooms elsewhere in the park were considerably more spacious as well as clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful during our stay. The Opry area as well as the rest of Nashville are easily accessible from the campground. The only downside for us was the campsites are very close together. We stayed for two nights and would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is kept generally clean. Landscaping is adequate, but not exceptional. We had a really muddy 30/50 pull-through site, with a large pool of water standing on one end. Drainage is poor throughout the park. Roads and parking pads are old and rough. The site was small and poorly maintained compared to price equivalent KOA's. Sewer connection was at the far end of pull through. For the first time in 6 years, we had to get an extension. Lots of trailers had LONG sewer hoses. The park is paranoid about dogs. We walked our fully command trained dog in a completely empty section of the park, 100 feet or more away from anyone. We got yelled at by one employee and approached by the general manager. ABSOLUTELY all dogs must ALWAYS be on a leash except in a small dog walk. We do not recommend this KOA if you have pets. The camp store is terrible, with lots of trinkets and religious stuff and few camper supplies. For example, they had no ice cream. This facility spends to much time on its live music and tours and too little time on the quality for the camper. We never saw the park more than 30-40% full, even on the summer weekend. We will not be back, and there are nice adjoining alternative parks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Although this campground is pricey in comparison to the other campgrounds nearby, we enjoyed our stay. This campground is located near everything in Nashville. The campground had a lot to offer: paved roads, concrete sites, cable TV, pool, laundry open 24/7, etc... They even offered Gray Line Tours from the campground. We took the downtown Nashville tour; home of the stars; Jack Daniels Distillery tour; Elvis impersonator; and Grand Ole Opry tour via Gray Line Tours. They pick you up and drop you off at the campground. You can also take public transportation within 1/2 mile of the campground to downtown Nashville. You are also within walking distance to multiple restaurants and Camping World. The staff was very accommodating. On check-in, we asked them if we could change the site that we were assigned since it was too close to the highway. They provided us with a list of sites available for the length of our stay (8 days). They guided us to our site. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was packed for the CMA awards week so we could not get a cable site. Otherwise site was a nice back-in in a shady area that had more room than the main part of the campground with pull thru's that had cable. Nice office/store/registration/game room area. There were lots of tour buses and people coming and going. Everybody seemed to be having a good time. It was close to restaurants and Camping World. We will come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The nice mature trees gave good shade. Many of the sites are fairly narrow and our picnic table was uncomfortably close to our neighbor's sewer connection. There was also a large bump between sites that made it hard to use what little space we had. On the upside, the pool was very nice and very clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My wife and I made a reservation here while on the road. We almost immediately realized that we had miscalculated our mileage and that we would have to drive nearly thirteen hours to reach this campground. We called back literally 12 minutes later to cancel and they absolutely would not refund our money ($75 for a small cabin). This was not during any holiday season. Not wanting to lose $75 we drove the 13 hours. That was the worst customer service we've experienced at any campground! We will not stay here again and would advise anyone else to do the same. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
If you camp here during a rainshower every site has waterfront access. It does seem to drain quickly however. The cable is okay once you set up as is the WIFI. The staff when we checked in wasn't exactly knowledgeable. We had our reservation confirmation for a pull-through but the young lady argued that their wasn't one available since they had a Coachman Rally booked. It took the general manager (who was able to read the confirmation) to move us to a pull-through site. Sites are narrow and driving around the park requires your RV to bend and slide around other rigs. If you plan on just an overnight stay, plan on unhooking your vehicles. The sites aren't long enough. It is close to restaurants and country music venues if that's your thing. . We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a park that is well worth your money! If you couldn't fit a 40' into your site something is wrong. A 38' foot was right next to us and had a vehicle parked front and rear. We had room to spare, and friends parked behind our rig while we were parked in front. Cable reception and Wi-Fi was great and the $10.00 donation for the show was worth it. The store, pool, laundry, goofy golf, dog park were very well maintained. The maintenance folks were mowing every day and were by far the most friendly and helpful staff we have come across in a long time. Most sites had nice fire rings and either a picnic table or a nice patio table and chairs. We will stay here anytime we pass through Nashville. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Old, rundown, poorly maintained park. Sites are extremely tight. The day we arrived, it rained, and we had mud everywhere. The site we were given was BARELY long enough - I mean inches to spare - we told them how long we were beforehand. Our "escort" led us to the site, drove through it, and disappeared. Still had to get out and check and guide ourselves in. We were quoted one rate on the road, and when we arrived, it had gone up $6. When we questioned it, we were told that the person that we spoke with had made a mistake. Hookups are old and at the rear of the sites - had to run 30" of sewer and water hose to hookup. Patios are small and placed in spots that would have worked 30 years ago , but not today. Cable was poor quality - 60% of the channels were not clear, no HD at all. They require that you use jack pads, and will lend you some if you don't have any - the sites are in that bad of shape, and they don't want to spend any money to improve them. We traveled with another couple, and the staff was incompetent enough to charge us for both motorhomes, even though we told them that we were paying separately. When we checked in we were told that we couldn't miss the night's entertainment - we had to see it. What they didn't tell us that there was a substantial charge to see it, which we chose to decline, as we were paying a premium price for an inferior campground. It further substantiated what KOA stands for " Keep On Adding." The best part of our 7 day planned stay here was the fact that we only reserved 1 night, and went out and checked the 2 other parks that are next to this place. Two Rivers looked good - sites were a little close, but it was dry and grassy - and considerably cheaper. We opted for Yogi Bear, as the sites were bigger, and we are towing behind 40' rigs. I have no idea how this KOA stays in business with two better campgrounds right next to it. We would not stay again - the owners need to wake up and spend some money on this aging place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For $60+ a night, we expected a "deluxe" site - not the tiny pull-through we were assigned to. There was no way we'd have been able to fit our 38' trailer AND tow vehicle into the site. There was no way we could stay hooked up, because we'd have blocked the road in front of us. So, we had to drive to the front lot and park our truck - then walk back and forth. The only way we could have parked the truck, would have been to park on the "grass" (which we were warned not to do). The tree next to us was so overgrown, the roots were cracking what used to be a level cement pad - and made it difficult to walk around to the trailer door. This KOA has nicer buildings than most, but is otherwise typically-rundown and horrifically overpriced. I guess they're charging due to their location - but when they're only 1/3 full, WHY? We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park in the middle of a suburban area. Large tress and well maintained lots. We stopped here for one night on the way to Gatlinberg, TN and were pleasantly surprised at this campground. On the return trip we had already made reservations for Two Rivers Campground in Nashville and wished we had made them for KOA Nashville instead. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very good location in Nashville - everything is close by. That being said, we did not love this place. Typical KOA - older, very cramped sites, expensive for what you get. We had one of their few long pull-thrus to accommodate our bus and car trailer but to leave the spot we had to maneuver around toweds and trucks partially in the road because they were in spots too small for them. Wifi and cable were okay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This time of year the campground was very quiet. The entire row where I was parked had 20 slots and 5 units in the row. Area was clean and staff was very friendly. I'll stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent location for outlet shopping and access to downtown. Well managed and friendly. Pet friendly with excellent pet playground for large and small dogs. We will return and enjoy summer with larger pool and music barn on site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great location. It was close to Opry Mills and the Grand Ole Opry. The Wi-Fi works great. The only down side is road noise. It is very close to Briley Parkway which is a very busy highway. The bathrooms were clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Typical KOA, Sites are very close together, Road is paved, no overhanging trees, sites level. Park is clean and quite, staff friendly,a very busy park due to being so close to the sites of Nashville. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. As usual in a KOA staff was very friendly and helpful. They had rented out the music barn while we were there and apologized in advance for the probable noise. They informed us that they were increasing their security to prevent any trouble. There were no problems. Park is very close to Grand Ole Opry, shopping and lots of other things. They even have a concierge, who was helpful. Pull thru was level, with a decent separation from neighbors. We are a big rig and had no trouble. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here in 06, and the campground has gone downhill and we won't here again. Unkept sites with branches and unlevel-patched blacktop. Hubby had three Ticks drop out of the trees above our site in a matter of hours and bite him. We feared if a good storm came along the tree abouve our site might loose some huge limbs since they were dead. We left after one day (wanted to go first day). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our second time here. It is a great home base for exploring Nashville and the Opry. The facility was clean and quiet considering your proximity to the highway. You can never go wrong staying here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Location is great. BUT the price wasn't. There are a couple of other campgrounds right next door for less money. Other then that, the park was clean and easy to get around in. We stayed in the "deluxe" site which had a picnic table like all the other reg. sites, but we did get a fire thing which wasn't worth the money. Some of the sites had a table and chairs in the sites but not all. So either don't bother with the deluxe site, or make sure you get more then the other reg sites for your money. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at this campground many times but it keeps getting better. Just weeks ago they have added cable TV to the park. Only campground on Music Valley Drive to have cable. Many improvements are constantly being made. More big sites for rigs like ours (4 slides and 37' 5ver). Staff extremely friendly from General Manager to check in personnel. We stay at the paved sites with concrete patio and patio furniture. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stopped here for an overnight on our way home from FL. The campground was very muddy. Lots of trees made for little grass on the sites. The roads are narrow, and we barely fit in our pull through site. Many of the pull through sites would require disconnecting your towed vehicle. There was a nice pool and dog walk area. I think it would be a nice campground for people with pop ups or small campers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here because Two Rivers RV Park, where we usually stay, was full. These sites were extremely tight and close, there was mud everywhere, no cable TV available, and they were at least $20 more than any of the other nearby RV parks. I guess that explains why we were able to get a spot there when the others were filled. On the plus side, they have a very nice dog walk/dog play area, and a nice playground if you bring kids. We would not stay here again though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here only overnight but would love to return. Very friendly, escorted to our site. Sites are a good size, level concrete pad with room for our toad to park also. A very nice off leash area for our dog to stretch his legs. Close to restaurants and shopping and only down the road from the Opry. Highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to see Nashville. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice park. Navigation thru park was easy, sites were spacious and level. The big drawback was the price. Even for the close proximity to major attractions the price was a bit steep. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for one night on our way to Alabama. We loved having a large pull-thru site. The playground for the dogs was a great advantage. 'Cock of the Walk' restaurant next door was very good and Camping World is right next door to that. We would have rated it higher except we don't see why someone would pay $20 more a night for this campground compared to Two Rivers which is just a block or two down the road, unless perhaps pull-thru sites and a playground for the dogs is worth that much to someone. Even the coffee was expensive here since my husband at first thought it was free and then after pouring 2 cups for us found out he was paying $1.49 for a small cup. This time we had a coupon for a free night at KOA so it was definitely worth it, but if we didn't have that coupon we would have stayed elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is very convenient to the Opryland Complex and travel to downtown is easy. The sites are adequate and they have almost all pull-thru sites. Some sites come with outdoor fireplaces and patio furniture. They have two dog parks which are great to let your dogs run and play. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a huge park located very close to the Grand Ole Opry and convenient to the interstate. The sites are a little close together, but the park is easy to navigate. The people are very friendly and helpful. This is a very dog friendly park, with two fenced in dog pens complete with exercise equipment. There is free wi-fi that works OK. There is no cable TV, but the antenna reception is acceptable. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is typical of the KOA campgrounds. They are old, and not equipped to handle the modern RV's. The sites are very small, and narrow. We have a 38' motorhome, and couldn't open both slides due to the narrow site. You can tell that this park was build along time ago when no one had slides, and equipment was smaller. I thought that paying $53 a night was like highway robbery. Until they improve this park, they should be ashamed to charge that when compared to other parks who had more to offer, and level, good sized lots. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the nicest KOA's I have been in. It is pricey especially the premium patio sites which are the most expensive. The patio sites have a large pebbled cement patio with a patio table and four chairs. There is also a patio glider and free standing fireplace. The patio sites are large enough even for the big rigs with multiple slide outs. The pool was large with a pavillion next to it for shade. All of the staff was friendly and tried to make sure your stay was enjoyable. It would have been nice to have cable TV for the prices they are charging. Overall, the park is close to all the Nashville attractions and offers Grey Line Tour bookings to all of the local attactions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pricey but located within 5 minutes of the Grand Ole Opry, Opry Mills and General Jackson Showboat. The pool area is very nice and large with a covered pavilion so you do not have to sit in the sun while watching the kids. My only negative is that they do not have cable. A campground in a major city should have cable at these prices. It was clean, the staff friendly and attentive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Nashville, Tenn KOA is the first to realise the need for fun and ease for dogs. There are 2 separately fenced in areas with agility equipment. The equipment is not regulation size but its still fun. There are benches in each gated area to let the dogs run and romp while you relax a bit. I could only hope that the other KOAs take note and also have future plans for a similar area for dogs. Many people vacation with there pets and this one of the best there is. Sites are average size and the rest rooms are clean. I would recommend the Nashville, Tenn KOA to all. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We paid $47 for one night. We were given a back-in spot which was full of weeds and generally rundown. We were told they provided wifi but it never did work. No cable TV. This facility is overpriced. If you have to stay in Nashville this should be your last choice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Have stopped here overnight for several years enroute to and from Florida. Nice campground, next to Campers World and several nice restaurants. Did not have reservations, and came in after office was closed. The rate was much higher than in the past, and staff explained it was their "after hours rate." Seems awful high for mid winter when all amenities are unavailable. Will probably find less expensive accommodations for future overnight stays. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice but expensive, especially in the winter when none of the extras are available and everyone just stays in their RVs. Very pleasant staff; upon check in, they identified that their website had charged us for a 50 amp site that we did not need, and they promptly refunded the difference. Even the premium sites are very small. We would consider staying here again if we were spending a longer time in Nashville, but as we were only looking for a place to sleep on our drive to Florida, we will probably choose a less expensive park next year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Their premium site was so short, our 32' 5th wheel with truck (we didn't even drop trailer) stuck out into the road. Had to park extra vehicle in grass. This campground is way over-rated. The other campgrounds on this strip are the same but much cheaper. I don't mind paying for a premium site if I get a premium site. Needless to say, I won't come back to the KOA Nashville. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly and helpful staff seems to know the best restaurants to visit and sites to see on this, our first visit, not Nashville. The sites are "snug" for our large fifth wheel but roads are paved and adequate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great campground. The staff is all very friendly and helpful and the park is very clean and nice. We stayed here over Thanksgiving and they had a nice dinner that everyone in the campground was invited to attend. The only reason this park didn't get a 10 from me is that the sites are a bit close to each other. We were near the highway and the noise from it was not bad at all. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped at this campground a couple of year's ago and it was okay. Our return visit was a surprise at how much improvements had been made. We requested the large pull through deluxe site which had a pebbled concrete patio and a fire place. WIFI is free to use and everyone tries to make your stay a good one. There is a tour desk for scheduling tours of Nashville thorough Grey Line tours. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park with wonderful service. Had one of the new sites with furniture and fire pit. A little too much highway noise where we were, but we were at the extreme end of the park. Other sites won't be as loud. Has a spot to wash the RV which is great. First rate campground that I will visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are narrow, but typical for the area. Still no cable TV hookups. WIFI is available, but signal is very weak in a lot of the campground and their internet connection is intermittent. They were having sewer issues when we first arrived, but the staff worked hard to fix it. Plenty of shade and the staff is friendly, but the park is showing its age. Excellent location and quiet if you're not at the edge by the Parkway. On our next trip to Nashville, we will try one of the neighboring parks before staying at the KOA again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only negative was I reserved a 50 amp spot and did get one only the 50 amp connection was dead. I hooked up to the 30 amp connection and it worked. They didn't seem interested in fixing the problem and they already knew about it. It was a nice park though and we thoroughly enjoyed our two nights there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I am not sure how KOAs (or other campgrounds for that matter) manage their reservations, but this one seemed a little weird. When I made the reservation weeks in advance I asked for a 50 amp pull through. I was told they did not have a PT available but that they had a back in site. I wrongly assumed they meant it was 50 amp, so I took it. When we got there I again asked at the desk if they had a 50 amp PT. The person checking us in said she would see, but another desk person immediately said they didn't have any PT's available, only back ins. I said that was OK, and they showed us to our site. As with most KOAs the road was narrow, and we had trouble backing in. Fortunately there were no RVs in the sites on the opposite side of the street or I don't think we could have gotten in since we had to pull forward into those spots. An inconvenient tree and light pole didn't help, but we made it. We located the sewer on the correct side of the site, but then we discovered the water and electrical hook ups were on opposite side. We have long cords and hoses so this still would have worked until we found out the site was only 30 amp. So we went back up to the office to ask for a 50 amp site. I talked to a third lady (the first two weren't there then) and explained that we thought we had reserved a 50 amp site and asked if they had one available. I'm sure the look on my face was priceless when she said, "Would you mind being in a pull through?" I suppose they could have had a cancellation in that short period of time, but it seems a bit unlikely. I didn't even try to find out why we were refused a PT the first two times. This site was easier to get into but very close to the next space over on our utilities side. In fact our sewer opening was almost under their picnic table. I felt sorry about this, but it was really their problem, not ours. The rest of the stay was fine. The camp is shaded and the spaces are clean. They are making some super sites which contain patio furniture and landscaping, but I think they also had a super price. The pool looked very nice, and the bathrooms were clean. They do not have cable TV, and we never did get the WiFi to work although they said it should. We think they are overpriced, but we would probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second time here and spent only one night. The pool was for the season and I thought the price was a little high for what you get considering that there are several other campgrounds on the same street within a couple of blocks from each other. All the campgrounds are within a couple of miles of the Grand Ole Opry, but you will need transportation to get to downtown Nashville. The park was clean and the staff helpful. They especially advised that the restrooms and main building were reinforced as tornado shelters as we had several go through the area that night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you are looking to stay close to the tourist areas of Nashville, TN then relative to the other two campgrounds this is the best or atleast equal too. Everything was clean and seemed updated. Our site was a pull through with W/E and we had no problem getting around with our 30+ft TT. Things are a bit tight for my personal taste, but we knew that when we decided to stay in Nashville, rather than further out. Fortunately, it wasn't very crowded due to the time of year I suspect. There's lots for the kids to do...pretty much the same as Jellystone - two pools, playground, game room, Putt Putt Golf etc. Also, the WiFi was fast & easy to use. I wish that there was more space & the prices cheaper rates, but this is what you get in town. We would stay there again anytime. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Graet park. Ddelux sites have beautiful patios and furniture w/ woodburnig fireplace. Very friendly staff. We extended our stay 3 days because it was so nice. Head and shoulders above other parks we have stayed at in georgia and tennessee. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was very nice, escorts to site. A little tight getting to some sites with our 40' 5th Wheel. They offer some deluxe pull through sites on concrete which are better and longer, but they are at a preminum to get. We stayed there for almost a month. Their Wi-Fi worked fine most of the time. Would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park, friendly staff, close proximity to popular Nashville activities. Transportation available to many Nashville sites. Camping World within walking distance. Stayed 5 days and wasn't long enough. Plenty of tv stations available without cable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice koa. Newer bathhouse was clean. Close to the opryland hotel and they offer tours at the front desk. There is a large barn on site that offers musicians a chance to play for a crowd. Nashville is a fun city lots to do. Will come again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beware, the entire top part of the campground ( the NICEST) part has been leased to a motor home dealer and is no longer a part of the campground. Very overgrown trees prevented use of the awning, the entire area was a muddy mess and the 50 AMP sites were in the middle of a row in the center of the campground. NO CABLE even though it has been promised for 3 years! Not designed for slides. Our neighbors had a patio side slide and with their slide and ours out, they only had about 4 feet of patio space. It looks like all of the campgrounds on Music Valley drive have gone downhill badly and are shriveling up, slowly. I seriously doubt that we will go back to KOA again. We had a reservation for a prime spot and were only informed of the loss of those sites 2 weeks before our trip. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites were very small, if you have a slide out it almost extends into the next site. We had a pull thru and I had to park my truck sideways in the site which barely fit (Crew Cab Long Bed truck). Cable was not working at the time we stayed there. Walking distance to Camping World. I would recommend Cock Of The Walk next door, this restaurant has very good food at a reasonable rate. When they say the best catfish they are correct. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Had planned to visit there in July '03. Just confirmed that they, in fact, do NOT have cable-tv although they advertise that they do. The office staff said that they never got around to finishing the connections. I have stayed at this park at least 20 times since 1985. During the 80's it was the greatest park I have ever visited in the country. Now, the staff is rude and the quality is no better than any of the other low-end campgrounds. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is most definitely a big rig CG. We pulled our Airstream and the backin sites were pretty small. No fires allowed but there is plenty to do here. It is close to several major attractions. We spoke to a lady who sponsors a big rig rally here and was very complimentary of the accommodations of the staff. We are more into rustic campgrounds and this had more of a trailer park feel. But, it was clean. Cable TV wasn't available but I understand it now is. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is convenient to the Opryland area, easy to get to and within walking distance to Camping World. The pull thru sites were small and too close together. Sitting under our awning, my feet were close to the sewer connection for the site next to me. Could not fully extend awning because it would hit our neighbors
slide-out. Security lights were too bright. Staff was friendly. While we were there, there was a huge thunderstorm. The park drained 1.50+" of rain away very well. Restrooms & showers were very clean, as was the pool. Our site had 30 amp service. We camped here in a camper.
Of the 3 Nashville CGs on Music Valley Drive I think this is the best. The new side is better than the old. Nice people at checkin and the CG is quiet, yet close to everything. You can walk to Camping World and several different places to eat. We camped here in a camper.
