We stayed at this campground recently and because the wifi coverage and speed was so good was actually able to "work from home" here. We were on site 18 and it was very level, paved and double wide. Parking was easy and it accommodated the 38' RV and a SUV. The sites all seem to be well shaded and spaced sufficiently apart. Travel to and from the park is on good roads. Chapel Hill, just to the north, offers all you might need with a hardware store, Dollar General, walk in clinic and restaurants. The park also offers a golf course which I didn't play due to the heat, but is on my list now that I've seen it.
The trails we hiked were well maintained and there is a quiet paved road suitable for bicycling.
Because of the close proximity to home, this will become on of our go-to spots for a weekend camp
The backcountry campsites are just a short trek from the camp store, the hike itself follows the river. We only saw one other couple and no one else was staying at the second site so it was such a secluded weekend! Definitely recommend for quick overnight trips!
For several months while living in TN, we spent almost every weekend at Henry Horton State Park. It’s not quite an hour from Nashville. We always got a primitive site, shady site. I was never disappointed by any of our sites and never felt cramped or too close to other campers.
HH has RV sites, cabins, “hammock sites,” and a large group site. They also have a camp store, firewood, and restrooms. Rates are pretty standard. Backcountry primitive hike-in sites are $8.
Interactive heritage festivals and other activities frequently came to the center across the street. I don’t really recall if this is part of the park or not.
Most campgrounds in Tennessee are buried in the woods, but not this yurt campsite at Ray of Hope. The yurt sets on the side of a beautiful Tennessee Hill offering almost a complete view of the nighttime sky. We watched the moon rise over a hill directly in front of the campsite, and we even saw a brilliant shooting star blaze across the sky for what seems like an eternity. The Ray of Hope campground is a private campground that went above and beyond our expectations. The yurt was clean, included battery powered lights and a LED lantern, and a full sized bed that made the night pass with ease. The campsite also offers free firewood and a large fire ring. There are two deck chairs at the campsite which are perfect for stargazing. The entrance of the yurt faces sunrise and the farm animals serenade you in the morning when the mist begins to burn off the valley. There is a well stocked outside shower surrounded by sweet smelling herbs. Water and a toilet are near the shower stall. The campsite is near the small town of Petersburg, TN where you can find two gas stations and a Dollar Store. If it's hot outside, you might want to bring a battery operated fan. This place is a perfect glamping experience for an extended date or weekend in beautiful Tennessee.
Stayed one night at Backcountry Site 1, and had the whole place to myself. Really manageable (and pretty) hike for an amateur camper like me with a bad back. Once I set up, I explored the river which was very nearby, and then did a little hiking. Lots of shade and from what I could tell, the facilities were really nice. Best part was definitely all the greenery on the river trail.
