Old Hickory Lake


Lone Branch offers all the amenities visitors need for a peaceful Tennessee getaway. Plenty of trees to provide shade, grassy open areas to run around, grills for barbequing and a boat ramp.


Boating and fishing are generally the main attractions for lake-goers, with anglers often catching black bass, crappie and catfish.


Both group picnic shelters have electric hookups and grills, and each holds up to 50 guests; however, parking may be limited. A boat ramp is also available for use.

Great wildlife

One great thing about this campground is that there is wildlife everywhere. We saw so many Whitetail Deer, it was amazing. They would just come into the campground, feed and walk around. They didn't see too worried or scared of us or others around. We also saw some wild turkey on our way in to the campground, which was pretty cool too. There were TONS of squirrels, which seemed pretty okay with humans as well. When we were eating, they were right there with us. It was a little annoying after awhile because I felt like we had to watch them so they wouldn't get into our food. There is a lake nearby that tons of people went to fish. My dad caught some trout which was really cool. We cooked that for dinner one night and it was amazing! We also enjoyed hiking- we went on the Buffalo Nature Trail that was across from the river and campground. This trail was great, with beautiful views. The campground was good as well. The sites felt large enough, and there was a fire ring within the site. There was also a huge picnic area that was covered that anyone could use. There was also restrooms w/ a flushing toilet as well as showers that guest could use. Overall, we enjoyed our time here but I do wish there were  more hiking trails.
