Stopped here for an overnight travel stop. Used only electricity and WiFi. Our site was in the middle of a wide gravel area, pretty much undefined except for the hookups pedestal. There is no picnic table or any grass in sight. The whole park is pretty much a small gravel surface. People were very nice and helpful. Dog walk areas are VERY restricted. Overall it met our needs for an overnight stop but would not plan on it for more. - Grumpier99

I called about 4:45PM and explained my needs, and that I wouldn't arrive until 7:45PM. She told me my rate, said she would leave a map to my site and welcome to Nashville--a very pleasant person. When I arrived and picked up my map, a golf cart came out of the dark and ask me what site I was in, and led me right to it --GREAT service. I set up, then hit the clean showers and enjoyed a quiet night. - Cdr Bob

Although our reservation was lost, very friendly staff was able to accommodate with a suitable site. (We stayed on the) end of row lot, hence no neighbor on the "eating" side, quiet, some shade, not level. Quality of sites seems mixed: some with adequate space between sites, others with nearly none. Mostly gravel and not very level. Be sure you call before arrival to confirm your reservation. - Uwe

87 campsites, many are pull-thru and about 20 are waterfront. Only two shower houses each with two showers for men and same for women. The shower houses and an additional rest room are all uphill from the lake area and the dirt paths to them are muddy slip-n-slides when it rains. Our hitch dragged getting up the steep gravel drive to our spacious level site. Many waterfront sites appear to be very challenging to get a level setup as they slope in all directions. Paved interior one-way road was easy to navigate. Quiet shaded campground on a COE lake. - Appleknocker

We stayed in site 13-15 during a heat wave. Every day storms came thru, so humidity and heat made it nearly unbearable. Thank goodness for ac. Husband thought it was great place and would stay again, but he'd have to do it without me. I prefer more sunshine than was able to get thru the thick tree cover. Staff very nice! Site was up an incline, but very level. We had a slight view of the lake from our site. The birds were hidden from sight, but they sang constantly, very pretty sounds. - max7_3

Excellent campground right on a Corps of Engineers lake. Site was remarkably level for this type of facility. I did not have to block up a 32 ft rig at all. Many of the sites are lakeside. Excellent staff. A great place to stay if you're in the Nashville TN area. - OhioBill

We stayed here from Sept 2015 - December 2015 as part of the Amazon Camperforce program; our campsite was paid for via Amazon. The campground is mostly old permanent campers and run down. We were staying in the back and had to be moved because the guy next to us was making all sorts of noise from midnight - 3am. They even told us they had other complaining about him and even one camper called the cops on him yet they did nothing about it but move us to another site.
The only amenities they had were showers and a bathhouse which were run down. The office allowed mail to be delivered for campers but always smelled of smoke and I couldn't even take my kids in due to that.
All in all this isn't a long term stay site. It would be fine for an overnight stop but we won't be back. - FrugalNavyWife

Campground was clean but had many old and rundown RVs that seems to be here for a while. Most are long term residence, most of them are in small travel trailers. No problems here but folks aren't very friendly. It is the only campground in the local area. We camped here to be close to family in the area. This is just a place to park your RV, no activities in the campground. - nascaron

This might be an OK park for tents or little trailers. We did not like it. The pull through was narrow and curved and the tree branches made it more narrow. It was dark and there was nowhere one would enjoy sitting outside to enjoy nature. It just was not pretty. Bathroom clean and nice. Dump station difficult to get to so we skipped it. There was water and electric that worked well. We could see a filtered view of the lake through the forest. Some small back-in sites were on the lake which might have been nice. We had reservations to return in a few days but we cancelled. We did not want to return. - ClayLady

Wow, so many positives and a few negatives. We stayed here for a week in one of the non hookup areas. We have been on the road all summer and have seen a ton of campgrounds and I have to say that the sites themselves are the best we have seen in the country all summer. So many have awesome proximity and access to the lake and all of the sites are dug into a forested area so that you don't see the neighbors almost at all. Reserve early and get one of the spots by the lake, with or without power. One bathroom has a shower AND one free washer/dryer which were handy. On the negative side is the availability of the bathrooms, of which there are 2. Both were EXTREMELY far away from our site (25). I'd estimate that walks to both were easily 1/4 and 1/2 miles respectively. Also, if you don't have hookups, access to potable water is terrible. For such a large campround, they absolutely need more faucets. Faucets were at the bathrooms but they could only spray water rather than a normal stream, which was tough to put in a cooler or bucket. Also, there is no propane nearby and when I asked the camp host about the whereabouts of propane he had no idea and had the audacity to tell me to google it. Great customer service. Also, there is only one driveway in and you have to pass the kiosk every time. If someone or a line of people are waiting to check in, you have to wait for each and every one before being able to enter, even if you just went down the road for ice or something. They need a fast lane. Anyway, after all is said and done, if you are prepared with some of the info I have given, this could really be a wonderful experience in an awesome camping area. - CaliDiscGolf

This campground is a bit of a hidden gem. It is an Army Corp of Engineers Campground on J Percy Priest Lake. There are only 10 sites with electric and water and 20+ primitive (dry camping) sites. You make reservations on recreation.gov and if you want W/E, you obviously need to reserve well in advance...which I did. Then I decided to extend the reservation by one day and the "helpful" gov't agent moved us to a dry camping spot. I didn't thoroughly check the reservation details so part of the blame is with me BUT then there is the agent...my new best friend. When we arrived he worked his magic. We had to move 3 times over 5 days but we had W/E for 4 of the 5 days. Instead of that last day dry camping we headed in for a staycation in Nashville...which is a 30 min drive. The W/E sites are level (dry camping..not so much) with plenty of space between sites. Relatively new circuitry. Elevated hose bib allowed for ease of attaching the filter and regulator. Clean, off the road, dump station. The views of the lake are beautiful. It would be great if they increased the number of sites to W/E and had more showers but they honor the America the Beautiful pass so we stayed 5 nights for 50% off. Not bad! So the agent is my hero and exploring Nashville was a blast from our haven at the lake. - Boerne6

One of the most beautiful campgrounds we've stayed at. And so convenient to Nashville. - ianschneiderman

We stayed for one night while passing through the area. The park is a little off the beaten path but not too difficult to find and only a few minutes from the interstate. The park is very pretty and peaceful. We were greeted by the friendly host at the gatehouse and given directions to our site, #58. There is nice privacy and separation between the sites. Our site had a pretty strong grade up which made backing in a little difficult. Not sure it would be suitable for a motor home. Also, we noticed our site and a few others had crumbling asphalt along the edge of the pad with a 6" drop off so we had to make sure our tires didn't go off the edge. The restrooms were OK; I didn't care for the showers because although the showers themselves were private, there was no room for dressing so you're forced to do so out in the open right next to the sinks. This should be improved. There is no campstore but the park is a short drive to numerous stores and restaurants. The beach area is pretty and has a nice playground. Over the air TV netted over a dozen stations and the At&t cell signal was strong. - Fdwt994

This was our second Corps of Engineers campground and it was an absolutely spectacular one on the shores of J. Percy Priest Lake. We were in site #13 which the ranger told us at check-in was "one of the sites that people try for years to get". We soon saw why. It was like our own private park...huge grassy lawn, sandy beach, long, straight driveway, large picnic and camping area. All sites on the lake are just as beautiful, and the ones not on the lake also spacious and private. We were there mid-week and the 60-site campground was almost full, a testimony to its popularity. There was a swimming beach, playground and boat ramp on site. We took a walk down to the day-use boat ramp and public park which were equally as beautiful as the campground. The one shower house was a bit of a hike but we didn't mind since they were quite clean and the walk did us good. There was also a separate bath house a little down the road. I can't say enough about this place and hope to return some day. - Debbie Collison

Excellent park, gated, on the lake, courteous staff, and easy access to Nashville!! So happy we didn’t stay in one of the parks by Grand Ole Opry. We couldn’t say enough about the staff. Office was even open Sunday morning at 8:00 am for me to get more quarters for my laundry. Hours are 8 am - 6pm everyday - Cynlruss

Not much to do at the state park, but the campground was very nice. Sites were spacious and had gravel patios. Area was clean and well maintained. Picnic table on our site was out of level. We would return for the camping. - Russell Moon

Love this park! Sites are a little close together. Wish they had full hook ups. We stayed in site 37 in a 37 ft. travel trailer and plenty of room both ways. - JLHickerson

The sites are too close to each other. Our fire ring was right beside and almost under our neighbor's slide out,we could not have a fire. The newer part has better spacing but only have 30 amp. When it's 90+ I need both AC's going. Staff great and it is a nice state park. I would stay here again. - Daniel123

The roads are all paved but narrow for big rigs. Pads are all concrete, very narrow and in need of repair. Utilities were all good, water pressure good and Wi-Fi strong but a bit slow. Lots of big trees which blocked satellite TV reception. Price is rediculous given the water park was closed. Lake shore is fenced off so there is not lake access from the RV park. Staff was friendly and allowed us to leave a day early for medical issues. Half the cost was required up front as a deposit with no refund when within 10 days of arrival. We choose this park for easy access to the airport. Sites were only 20 minutes away. - BBGuy

Might be a good setting for the next Friday the 13th movie.... The park facilities are sad. You might want to take a shower in your RV if you have to use the park restrooms (yuck). Most of the lights in the campground are out and what are lit are far an few between. (Take a flashlight wherever you go - snakes, spiders, etc.). The dog park is a mud pit and the laundry facilities are out of the dark ages. I realize it's the end of the season for them, but there is no excuse for the conditions based on the nightly rate. I had to actually thread my RV through 2 concrete pilings. - Opie14120

I would not recommend staying here during the water park season unless that is why you came. The water park is literally next to the campground, nothing to block the noise. The traffic must be tremendous. You enter & exit the campground with the water park traffic. It is like entering Disney World's parking lot. Also beware of the speed bumps. They are killers. We stayed here during the week in August when the water park was only open on weekends. It was relatively quiet. The park looks old. Some of the spots are difficult to get into because of curbing. Some spots have to turn around in a tight circle to exit. We also had difficulty getting someone to answer when we made reservations in February. The water pressure was fine for us. We had no problem getting satellite signal. There is a large dog park that our dogs enjoyed. Kind of sparse with the grass because it is heavily wooded. We didn't use the cable. We will probably be back but will be careful with the site they assign us & will schedule our visit for after the water park closes. - Connie's Co-Owner

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 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
