Nice clean, well kept park for overnight, pull through sites long enough for trailer and truck. Staff very friendly. - Thomas Dunn

This park is right off 1-65 and very convenient for a short stay. We were just here one night on our way up north but found it very nice. The sites are gravel and level with full hook-ups. Staff is very nice and helpful. One of the quietest parks we have been to for the sites being close together. Would love to have had a little more vegetation and shade but would stop again. Great water pressure! - Shopinful

Easy access from interstate, helpful and friendly staff. Poor cell, no WiFi. Found it difficult to level our coach. Didn't use pool or attend the free music while at campground. - Bill_Mar

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

The park is pretty with several trails, good OTA service, and good cell service. The online reservation website indicated the site we chose was level, but it wasn't. We also chose the site because it was close to the bathhouse, but when we arrived that bathhouse was closed due to renovations. The next nearest bathhouse was about a quarter mile away. - K20

We were walk-ins and while we didn't get a waterfront site, we still had a nice view of the water because our site was kind of elevated, plus the sites are staggered so no one was directly in front of us. On our curbside was a nice wooded area where we could walk our dogs. Overall a really nice campground. We would definitely stay here again. - janci

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 park, a little pricy. Their guest service guide listed live music & BBQ in the park on Thursdays but none was seen. - larryo

Stayed overbite at the Nashville North KOA, Very Friendly courteous staff both at check in and also when guided to our site. site was FHU but Very Close to neighbor. sites were Gravel/Grass. We stayed there in a Fifth Wheel. this is the Most Expensive park we have ever stayed in. - danny 285

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

Love staying here whenever we visit friends in the area. Wonderful cafe for evening daily special and daily breakfast. Unfortunately, whoever installed wifi repeaters placed them too low on poles....thus, no wifi. - lezm3

We enjoyed our stay here, but this could be a hit or miss park, depending on the spot you have. Many of the 30amp sites are wedged in very close together, and some of the 50amp sites are right next to an active train track, which I imagine would be very annoying. We had a very nice site and were very comfortable here. Just long enough for our 40ft Motorhome plus tow. Our only complaint was with the maintenance man who was trying to fix an electrical pedestal. Since he didn't know which breaker to turn off, he started flipping them all off/on. This worried us, as we had 2 A/C's running and the coach would flip between shore and battery power. After the second time, we went to talk to him, and he didn't seem to understand that this could cause real problems for people. - Moo1966

This is a nice, neat park. Easy to find and good interior gravel roads. The check in was quick and easy, and they escort you to your site. The sites look pretty haphazard, but not bad once you are parked. There was some sites that are closer and more crowded, but there was enough room on our site. Our site was a pull-in site, and site in front of us was a back-in. So it was close in between coaches. Not a lot of grassy areas for dogs. Didn't use the wifi. Good Verizon service in the area. Utilities worked well. There is a train that goes by frequently, no horn blowing though. They serve lunch and dinner nightly at a reasonable price. Live music also each evening. Prepare for costly parking in Nashville! We would stay here again. - Vicki K

The road coming into the park is a good two lane road. Easy to manage and not terribly narrow or curvy. Check-in was easy and staff were very pleasant and informative. All sites are back-in and flat. The circular design of site layout made for easy maneuvering for backing in. No side to side leveling was required. Water and electric hookup good. The waterfront sites are extremely nice. There is not a bad site at all in this campground. Each site has some openness but also has shade. Spacing between sites is good. Dump station is a little tricky to maneuver due to its location. The adjacent day area is very nice with beach, boat ramp, bath house and plenty of parking. All in all, this is a very nice campground. It falls right in line with the high standard of COE campgrounds. A couple of cons; the shower rooms needs some TLC with upgrades and the laundry machine (1 washer-1 dryer) are outside covered with bugs. - Land Wanderer

Overall clean campground with lots of trees and good views of the lake. The campsites on both sides of the perimeter road have good spacing. The campsites in the "circle" drive areas are closer to each other but are not too close and some even have hedges/bushes between them. Nearly every site has trees and shade and are very close to level. Sites 15, 16, 41, 41 and 43 don't drain well at the front, (near the drive), so if you have rain you will have wet area in front of your rig. No sewer service but the dump station is easy to pull in to even in a big rig and it has water for rinsing. We would use this campground again if in the area. Never saw or heard from anyone associated with the park. - CroweTravels

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

The grounds were very good. The spacing between sites was good. The grands were clean. They did not lead us to our site. Access into the area was good roads. Spots were rock The reason for the lower rating was the pool. The bottom was slippery. The edges around the top of the pool had bolts sticking up. They had painted sometime before my wife went in the pool area and paint was still wet. - ko4rpaul

camped 1 night over Memorial Day Weekend in a 22' Class C, no toad. We normally try to avoid KOA's but with all the State parks and most private campgrounds requiring a min 3-night stay over the holiday weekend, it was our only choice. and Thank Gog for KOA's policy there, or we'd have wound up in a WalMart parking lot or something. Campground is pretty much as described in the other reviews.. lots of trees, sites close together, and pretty basic as far as KOA's go. It was easy to navigate and set up, site was fairly level for us though if you're much longer you'll need jacks/blocks to level out. Office was close already at 6:45PM and we had to check-in the next morning, but all info was in the night checkin area. If you're at a site towards the back of the park, yeah, you'll hear some road noise outside, but if you're in a motorhome with the A/C running I can't imagine you'd actually still hear it inside. Dog Run was not on the site map and we didn't see it until the next day before we were leaving. Bummer for the pupper. It served our purpose but would probably not stay here again if there are other choices available. - VW_Vista

This was our first stay at the Bowling Green KOA. We booked the "buddy sites" with some friends which are large pull-thru sites facing each other on the far end of the park. We had a large concrete patio between the rigs that was really nice. Site was level and included two tables and a portable fire pit. Sewer site is far back from the water and electric hookups. I had to add an extension hose to reach the sewer connection. Road noise from the nearby I-65 was minimal. Other than the sewer connection (which was at the rear of my rig) utilities were situated conveniently (I had to buy a sewer extension hose). Cable worked well and provided many channels. We enjoyed our stay and will be back during Derby Week. There are many restaurants nearby and Camping World is about a mile away. The only downside is the road exiting the park. You'll need to make a right-hand turn to get out of the park and if you have a long rig you need to swing wide to clear a large ditch. It's a two lane road and heavily traveled, so it can take a while to get enough clearance to exit. Camping World is nearby and restaurants galore. The Corvette Museum is right down the road. - sixtires58
