This place is OK when it's not a busy weekend. We stayed on Memorial Day Weekend and it's was completely full. When it's full, it's just TOO full. Too many people, dogs and kids that are too close together. It's a shame because it's in a beautiful park, they just need more room between the sites.
If it's not a long weekend and they're not full, I would highly recommend the location for the hiking and the remoteness. When it's full, it's just too crowded.
A fantastic family-friendly state campground. Mostly quiet after dark. Neighbors are friendly and welcoming (you’ll find that many visit in groups).
Amenities: Trails are pleasant. Playground is great. Bathrooms are clean but need an update. Not much in terms of wifi or tv if you are looking for that but att and verizon were usable.
Roads feel narrow but we had no problem maneuvering in our 36’ 5er. River sites look great but we booked last minute. Wound up with a corner interior spot (107) that backs to a tent camping area so was fantastic for views, too and this spot was quite spacious.
Location is lovely but is not that close to Nashville if that’s your goal.
The only thing outstanding about this campground was the wifi - it's the first state park c/g I've been to where the wifi was actually usable. I'm surprised to see others say that the sites were well spaced. The c/g was pretty much full this past weekend when we were there and it was mostly shoulder to shoulder except for the tent area. Like a WalMart parking lot with trees. We were lucky to have a site with some privacy (#62) but it was not level (about a foot off level for our 21' van). The paving for the sites is quite narrow and I don't see how you'd get a big rig on them. But the c/g was quiet considering the crowd and it is a pretty park.
Over all a nice place but could be better. Pads are not level. Saw a class A that had front wheels 10" off the ground and a TT with the hitch on the ground. Many sites had drop offs on the door side of the pad so you could not use all the awning space. We fell off the pad several times walking to the fire pit.
I live too close to this State Park to camp here but I do play the golf course. Very nice and expect to see deer and turkey.
In addition there are some good places in nearby Dickson to eat. Tony B’s for burgers, Back Alley for BBQ, Zander’s for Pizza and Katie’s for ice cream.
The bonus is that it is an easy drive to Nashville.
The campground is clean and well-maintained. The campsites are shaded with plenty of space in between sites. The hiking is phenomenal.. so much beauty in one location. This place has it all.. golf course, fishing, boating, hiking trails, lodging (hotel and villas), playgrounds, streams, waterfalls..
The park is well kept, clean and lots of trees for shade. Good bike riding and walking trails.
The sites are back in and range from full hook up to primitive. Most sites are level. The water, power and septic all worked w no issues and were in decent shape. The roads are asphalt but aging. Bathrooms and showers were aging but clean and well placed throughout the campground. Some sites backed up to a slow creek, I would recommend 80 & 81 they have fabulous creek access.
If you want a campground that has it all, Pennyrile State Park is where you want to be!
It has a GORGEOUS white sand beach with breathtaking blue water. Crazy to see that in KY!
Explore their caves, kayaking, canoeing, basketball and so much more! They even offer a wrangler campground if you want to bring the horses.
A little pricier than others, but worth it.
