  1. Site Quality = 4/5
    Very decent site quality here. The sites are paved, long and decent size with a very nice sitting area on the side with picnic table and fire-pit/grill. The water-front sites are definitely prime with a gorgeous view of the lake right from your RV. Back sites are nicely private, shaded and separated, but no water views. The only ding is that a few of the sites are not quite flat. Sites have electric (selection of 30 & 50 AMP) and water.
  2. Facilities = 3.5/5
    The facilities are decent, but with a few dings. There’s flush toilets and hot showers, but the shower-room becomes a ice-skating rink when it’s wet and there’s quite a few bugs in the facilities. On the bonus side, the campground has on-site dump station, swimming beach and boat launch, plus there’s nice access to the lake all along the water-front. There’s one laundry machine on-site.
  3. Location = 4/5
    The location is very good. It’s a lake campground and nicely quiet, yet you’re only 7 miles from Nashville. So, you have the bonus of relaxing surroundings with the city right at your fingertips. The only reason it doesn’t get a 5 is because there’s no real hiking directly from the campground, plus (unfortunately) the lake-front has a bit of trash & glass on it. But, there are nice areas and hiking within short driving distance.
  4. Pet Friendliness = 5/5
    Great doggie campground. Lots of space to hang out in the sites, plus water access around the lake.

Overall Rating = 4.1
BONUS ALERT = Secluded lake-side campground within 7 miles of Nashville 

Summary: This is a great campground to visit Nashville and the surrounding area. It’s beautifully located right next to J. Percy Priest Lake in a very quiet wooded area, yet it’s only 7 miles from the city. The water-front sites are lovely with long, paved sites, electricity & water and a “manicured” sitting area with views of the lake. The back sites are also nice and private although without the views. The campground itself has a nice selection of amenities with a swimming beach, boat launch and direct access to the lake. It gets a few dings in the facilities, a bit of trash the lakefront and the fact there’s no hiking trails, but overall this was a lovely stay for exploring the area. 

 Extra Info:  Both AT&T phones and Verizon wireless worked. Reservable electric/water sites with selection of either 30AMP or 50AMP. Sites are $24/night for 50AMP electric/water. Central dump and potable water. Laundry.
