their halloween weekend is a great time of fun for the kids!
the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the bath houses were clean. we visited during Independence day and the staff put on many activities such as decorated bike parade for kids, balloon toss,arts and crafts. also near Nashville with all it offers and lots of trails. will be back.
Camped here in the fall. The spots are decently spaced apart with many trees. Located near a Dollar General for basic needs. Will definately camp here again,
This is a great campground and has something for everyone to enjoy. Even if camping isn’t your thing, they have well appointed cabins. We went horseback riding and had a great experience celebrating a birthday weekend.
I made a tour of campgrounds and lake recreation spots near Nashville TN during an extended trip where I had to be there to keynote some conferences. This spot was my absolute favorite!
Camping- The camping is really nice. If you're traveling with a family and need lots of variety for them close to the campsite, this is the spot to pick.
Think how awesome it'd be to fish for supper right from the tent almost.
Grounds- The grounds here were very well kept.
When I camp, I want either water or trails. This one had magnificent trails. Not too long, so good for the family. If you want longer, you can just do loops. The best thing about these trails were the open depressions and crevices in the ground. It's like a natural playground for adults and kids alike. I loved it!
Check out the photo of the map for even more activities. This would actually make a nice spot for reunions.
As soon as we pulled into Cedars Of Lebanon State Park I got the old time vibe from the split tree fences and ancient farm equipment to the black and white photos in the visitors center, this park seems very in touch with its beginnings.
We hiked some of the 2 mile running trail and then veered off to explore the CCC original looking covered bench which overlooks a currently dry stream bed. There is a similar covered bench on the far-side of the dry creek with very cool stone “steps” leading from one to the other and a wood bridge further down the small valley to cross the stream bed when it has water in it. The stream runs into a cave that you can visit while at the park, guided tours are suggested but not required. Check in before exploring the cave and wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting muddy, low ceiling and headlamp/flashlight needed.
As you follow path up away from the creek bed you wander into a very unique garden area which is part of the Nature Center. I would love to have the creativity and skill to build some of the structures in my yard. Definitely worth a visit.
The picnic area which is adjacent the lodge has small and large pavilions for use and fire pits. The lodge looks like it’s the original that you can see in the black and white photos.
The campground had the smell of bacon cooking when we pulled in which just sets the atmosphere perfectly;) there are three loops. One has side by side sites, no privacy and not much space but easy in, easy out. The other two loops have more area between sites which are tucked back into the trees. Area 3 is for pop ups , tents and vans with 20 amp electric, Area 2 is for the larger campers, 30 amp and area 1, the side by side is 30 to 50 amp. Aside from the occasional overly excited children it is a very nice quiet campground. There is disc golf, a swimming pool and riding stables plus two playgrounds and a nice gazebo that you can rent for special events. Definitely a campground to spend a chill weekend and unwind.
All sites have electric and water. WiFi throughout. Swimming pool available at discounted rate for campers. Caves to explore, disc golf, trails, playgrounds.
A very nice park. A lot to see in the park with great restaurant! It also has a nice golf course.
Three sections. Sec 1 is primarily campers, little close to each other and always a bunch of dogs barking. Secs 2 &3 offer more trees and space-maybe hard for big rvs. They just came thru and updated the bath houses and added more hookups. Lots to do here.
Enjoyed Cedars of Lebanon State Park after completing my first triathalon sprint with some very great girlfriends! Almost all camping spaces were pull through, and they were close, providing for very little privacy. The shower house was the highlight of the campground, as it was very clean, well kept and had endless hot water (it was unusually cold during this stay). Campground has all amenities, and is close to many attractions being located between Nashville and Knoxville.
