A nice small state park, well maintained and cleaned. We generally use our own bathrooms but our toilet broke so we used the restrooms here and found them to be clean. They were convenient to this site. Deer roam throughout the park and campground. Our back in site #3 (handicap accessible) was fairly level and sufficient for our 40' mh and car. We were far enough away from the next site that their campfire did not bother us. We stayed here because we could not reach COE parks by phone and we could this park. It was also relatively close to Lebanon where we wanted to meet friends. It was easily accessible from US 231 that we were traveling on. We used the dump station and dumpsters near the entrance as we left. We liked the fact that the Tn, state parks don't charge entry fees like many other states do and they had a senior discount for camping. This site could use limbs trimmed. - JAWS

Nice & fairly level campsite with quiet and spacious layouts. Our site had fire pit & grill with large picnic table and electric & water. We stayed in a site just 30 feet from lake shore. Easy access for putting in a kayak or fishing from the bank. Plenty of wildlife; ducks ran through camp often and deer could be seen on trails. Nice playground area for the kids.
Only 1 concern: There were No trash cans around except at bathroom or dumpster on way out of campground. Would have been nice to have one in the loop we were on.
Bathroom facilities are clean, flushable toilets, and showers are plenty big. The showers even have a removable shower head (BONUS), although the showers are separated by a small curtain so privacy is somewhat lacking.
Hiking trails are well maintained and variety of difficulty. Camp hosts were friendly and did drive through on a regular basis. We would definitely stay here again. - DeanaN3Dogs

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

Wish we could have stayed more than one night here. Even though we weren't lakeside, we still had a nice view of the very pretty lake. Our site used wood to create a 2nd level, and some of this wood needs replacing. The host at the gate was not that welcoming, but a ranger who came by our site was very friendly. - Lane Wise

Stayed in site 20 over Memorial Day weekend. Our site was level but lacking privacy. Restrooms and showers were clean overall. The restroom doors were always open so there were bugs in the shower stalls. - cdb14

Tough to find in a large MH but worth the trip. Sites a little close but all scenic. Biggest problem is finding the signage to enter the road to park. You must watch closely for sign on Cages Bend Road. - Supdog11

Mostly agree with previous post. We were in a back-in by the water. It was spacious, packed crushed gravel, and level. Some shade. Beautiful view of the water, which was only 30' away. - mroswell

Depending on your direction of approach, plan on traveling several miles on curvy, hilly, narrow roads to reach this campground. Your view of this campground is going to depend heavily on what site you have. The sites along the water are well-separated with nice views. Most other sites, not so much. Other than the water sites, the campsites are arranged in circles. We had two different sites since we were unable to secure one site for our entire week stay. Both sites were very crowded with views of many, many other RVs. It was not a good feeling with our table close to the table in the loop behind us. The sites have a thin gravel coating that, when it rains, become a real slimy mess. Our grill had the bottom burned out and our old wooden picnic table was falling apart. We were able to get satellite for DirecTV and Verizon signal for voice and data was strong. It was very quiet there at night as the recreation area is on a dead-end road. They shut the gate at 10, but it is not locked so you can get in and out. This was an acceptable place to stay to visit Nashville and the price is certainly right considering the cost of commercial RV parks in the area. - TheJim

Stayed 5 nights with a 43' motorhome to visit Nashville and Opry. Our rate reflects America the Beautiful pass. Easy to get to CG, approx. 10mi from I-40. Easy check-in. Interior roads paved and easy to navigate. Our site #3, partly shade in the front loop and level with small gravel sitting on a sandy base. When it rained the site drained but was muddy. Good spacing between sites. Sites along river have a lot more space between them. Utilities E/W worked well - no sewer. Dump station at rear of park. Need to make a U-turn and go up slight incline to position to dump but manageable. Trash needs to be taken to the dumpster at the front by the bathhouse. Each site has a fire ring and table. Bathhouse (did not use) were clean but showers needs some attention to moldy curtains. Beautiful park with lots of shade and open fields bordering the Cumberland River. Grassy fields were in good shape with lots of room to walk your dog. Very peaceful, tranquil setting. You can watch the ships moving barges in the river and enjoy the view. Outside the park down the road is the Cedar Creek Marina where you can have lunch or rent a boat to cruise on the river. Nashville is about 15mi away. - RTM

Great overnight stop for us, wish we could have stayed longer. Seamless checkin with escort to our nice shaded long wide level pull through gravel site. Full hookups all worked well. Cable tv ok. Decent WiFi for light use. Ok Verizon. Paved interior roads a little tight. Nice dog areas with bags and waste cans. Would stay here again if in the area. - Janau NC

This is the cleanest KOA I have seen! Showers and bathrooms were very clean, with good water pressure and nice hot showers. The laundry facilities were very clean as well. Laundry room has five or six washers and six dryer’s. Hosts are very friendly and helpful with tourist and sightseeing information. Site #8 was level with good water and electricity. Most sites looked fairly level. The only reason this did not get five stars is because the toilets and showers are not wheelchair accessible. - Robin Florida

Stayed one night, could not open awning due to close proximity of side by side campers. Quiet time not enforced, was roused from bed at 12am by noisy campers next door. Less than 3 feet between campers. Will NOT stay at this KOA again. - Don45

This campground is good when your passing through when the area. It’s right off the highway and you know it is there with constant drone of freeway traffic. The traffic noise is not distracting, just expect it because of your location.
The campground’s staff were friendly and helpful.
In general, the campground’s facilities are nice. It seems that they place the short term campers in the front section. The back section of the campground is for their long term campers.
The back section is still nice but their long term residents don’t try to keep their “stuff” placed either out of sight or stored in an orderly fashion.
The bathroom facilities were nice in the front. I’m sure the back section was also nice but we didn’t not use them. - Pigcrib

One of the Nicest, Friendliest KOA Campgrounds we have ever visited... The hosts were extremely nice, polite and helpful... We only stayed one night on our way to a family reunion in Raleigh, but I would certainly stay there again. We pull a 40' 5th wheel. Sites are gravel and not perfectly level, but shady and cool. The host guided us to our site and made sure we were satisfied. - Miaoreo

This is a difficult review to write because one bad experience colors my recommendation for this park. This park is one of the best options to park an RV around Nashville because it is away from the busy Opry area (a plus for us, but maybe not for others), a 20-minute drive from downtown and reasonably-priced. The sites are decent sized and the office staff is helpful. There is some road and train noise but we didn't find it to be very noticeable. The reason I can't recommend this park is due to the danger of flooding. A violent rainstorm came up around ten PM last week. We were riding it out when we started seeing water sheeting across the ground. The water rose fairly quickly and we started seeing RVs pulling out of their spaces and leaving. No one had informed us that the park is in a dangerous flash flood zone and no one from park management came around to warn us the creek behind the park was overflowing its banks. We weren't sure what to do, but eventually realized that the water was going to keep rising. Luckily we were able to get out before the water caused any damage to our trailer, but our truck sustained water damage that will be a major insurance claim. We have since learned that several vehicles and RVs were destroyed by a major flood here in 2017. Unless the flood risk is addressed, I can't recommend this park. - MrSunshine

Stayed here while attending a wedding in Nashville. This is an older somewhat refurbished campground. Owners extremely helpful is setting up and answering any questions you may have. Probably the best thing about the campground is the nightly entertainment, music, which is presented free of charge. The main downside is the crowded sites and water connection being underground. - ztlrgf

A nice RV park about 15-20 minutes north of the City. About a $20 Uber/Lyft ride which we used as our main method of accessing the city, especially Broadway. Very friendly staff. Good breakfasts and dinners. Music every night. Sites were a little close but no too bad. Originally had #79 and could not get DirecTV because of the tree beside the site. They moved us to 27. Internet at both was poor. "Cannot Connect to this network", "incorrect password" when reconnecting, No internet most of the times. Maybe for a half hour or so very early, but would then get kicked off. Talked to the staff about it. Normal responses that it was being worked on or someone was coming to check it or "when everyone gets on it is difficult to connect to". They need to fire their wifi company! We had no problems for 3 weeks before this and 2 weeks after. Oh, and a tree limb fell out of a tree beside us in #27. Luckily it hit our roof mount bike rack and fell right beside the care. Pieces of old dead tree limb all over, but no damage we could see so far. Had hoped they would be more sympathetic about this. - BoatEscape

If you want a particular site make sure you get it in writing. The office staff is new to accommodating RV'ers and it appears that a good "working" plan is still being developed (how to keep up with who is coming/going-where/when and what site numbers). This is a nice, established, mobile home park close to I-40 and conveniently located. There are plenty of spaces, and large sites. Maybe more suitable for the longer stays. - road-rambler

This park has uneven sites. So much so that, even with the use of the on-board RV leveling Jacks, we couldn't extend our bump outs.
This park is very unclean. The bathrooms (showers/commodes) are filthy and in need of maintenance, cleaning and updating.
The laundry facilities are the same. The machines are rusty (inside and out). I was afraid to use them over concern that the rust would bleed onto my clothes during the wash cycle. I had to take our camping laundry to an off-site laundromat.
Beyond the uncleanliness of the amenities, the grounds too are unkempt. The front sites (visible front he road) are mowed and weedeated. The back sites are not.
The camp directs you to walk your pets in a "designated area," that is all well and good if they would actually direct you to where that "designated area" is, which they did not. Everyone here seems to have a different opinion about where that is. The most common place seems to be by a large trash heap in the middle of the park. I walked my dog near that spot in the day, but was hesitant to at night. The pile of wood debris in the middle of your campground is dangerous. There are used boards with very large nails sticking up...just waiting for a child to fall or step on them and need an ER visit for tetanus shot and stitches. ed boards with very large nails sticking up...just waiting for a child/pet/anyone to fall or step on them and need an ER visit for tetanus shot and stitches.
We had an overnight stay on Saturday night. This was BYOB and Karaoke night on the office porch (not far from our camper). The more the crowd drank, the louder and more off pitch the Karaoke singers became. They started at 5 PM and continued until 10:00 PM. We had planned phone calls to family back home and a movie in our camper. The karaoke began and remained so loud, even inside our own RV, we were unable to keep our plans. - George Hall III

I stayed there in 2006 for at least a year and loved it. Met some great friends. I would go back. Dirt sites are very close and open to sun. Picnic table. - s12552001

I stopped here looking for one nights rest. The staff was very polite and helpful. The campground is catering to mostly permanent setups and the newest RV in was at least 20 years old. I did not see any open sites except for the small one they put me on. It would be too small for anything over my 21 footer. I did my laundry here and while the machines have been well used. Some had rust and some were out of order. My clothes came out clean and dry. Everything remotely movable was chained and padlocked. If you want cheap camping and not a large rig it would be OK, but if rough looks aren't your style I would keep looking elsewhere. - Goinmobile

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

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

Stayed on site 313 which was a level gravel back in site with a concrete pad. The sites give you ample room to open slides on both sides and the roads are wide enough to navigate and make it easy to back into your site. The wifi and TV were very good here and the park has a good size dog park. The plus to this park is that for $10. a shuttle arrives at the park each hour to transport you to the downtown area which well worth it as parking is an issue. The staff were extremely friendly and and will assist in selecting and obtaining tickets for events. The park is next door to a Camping World and just off the freeway but is quite. - Irish2

Two Rivers RV Park is just off the freeway, in between an RV dealership and a Camping World, in a row of other RV parks, about 1 1/2 miles from the Grand Ole Opry ($7 by Lyft), and ten miles from downtown. The park is clean and the people friendly. Sites are level gravel, and have a concrete pad for the picnic table. As private parks go, site spacing wasn’t terrible. The hookups were all very close together. Sewer hookup was within six inches of the fresh water. The water was heavily chlorinated, and I think this is the park that destroyed our water filters. Cell service was fine. I didn’t try the WiFi. - AnnP

There were no 50-amp or pull-through sites available, only 30-amp back-in's. It worked OK for us. They caution you to not overload the 30-amp service, even giving out a sheet with estimated current draw for all your appliances. The power boxes do not have their own circuit breakers, so if you overload it you'll have to call the office to have it reset. This park is very conveniently located for visiting the Grand Ole Opry, only 2 miles away. And they have a shuttle that runs into Nashville on the hour and half-hour. $10 per person round trip. This park was the best value that we could find in the area. We'd probably stay here again. - wntrtxn
