Convenient and clean

This campground was nice and quiet and convenient to the cute town of Mount Juliet. Sites a little closer then I like or expect from COE/state parks. Bathrooms near to the entrance were a little dated, but the ones near the dump station were nicer. The playground/beach area was nice. The laundry was literally 1 washer and 1 dryer behind the bathrooms near the entrance (outside under an overhang). We will pass through again.

Beautiful but not with kids

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids age 11 and 12) stayed on the East Loop for a few fall nights. We opted for the deluxe sites inside the loop rather than on the lake after reading reviews about the mosquitos.

The Good:

  • The resort grounds are new with level concrete pads.
  • Excellent WIFI connectivity pretty much everywhere.
  • The staff are seen all day caring for the grounds. Hardly anything out of place.
  • Stunning lakeside views.

The Annoying:

  • It’s still under active construction. Impacted us mainly because it was happening right behind our site with concrete trucks were operating all day.
  • Poorly secured electrical boxes with dangerous construction of stairs and decks (no railing in places, etc). This place is asking for a lawsuit.
  • Drainage holes on the side of the road with no covers.
  • No easy access to get a kayak/canoe in near our camp site on the east loop.
  • The mosquitos. It’s camping on a lake in the south but our neighbors staying in the lakeside lots could hardly even be outside. They would swarm you on the docks, too.

The reason we won’t be back: Bill, the manager.

It’s really unfortunate but Bill doesn’t like kids. He would prefer the camp to be 55+. Bill didn’t like kids playing on the “adult lounge swings”.

One afternoon I’m happily enjoying a game of cornhole with my mosquito escaping neighbors. Up walks Bill to inform me that my child and some other camp kids were abusing the playground equipment. What could have been a very civil conversation spiraled into Bill calling several adults names and threatening to kick us out of the camp. All because one of the kids was swinging too high for Bill’s liking.

It’s too bad Bill ruins the place. Heard it from multiple other families staying at the same time. Really nice spot and pleasant staff otherwise.

Clean and quiet

We camped here in January. It was very quiet because the other campers were all RVers who spent most of their time inside. The bathrooms were very clean and we basically had them to ourselves, since the RVers used their RVs. This park was really nice and we got some great sunrises over the water. Loved having a water spigot onsite. Only an hour away from Nashville if you want to visit!

River glamping

 Whooping Crane Farm is a private glamping site that you can find on Tentrr. The property is 12 minutes from downtown Nashville, making it a perfect Glamping location. Being close to great restaurants is definitely a plus. The site is gated and right on the river, so the only traffic you have to worry about are the barges that are passing by on the river, or any boaters that are out. There’s a pond on the property, and they advertise kayak rentals. You could ride a bike around the property also, if you bring your own bike. The canvas tent was decorated nicely, with some cool lanterns and a wood burning stove. There was a battery powered fan, that lasted most of the night. The bed was comfortable for glamping. There’s a picnic table with a cooking station, and a charcoal grill. Plenty of cut firewood for the fire pit. There is a restroom, but it’s not a flush toilet, just a bucket toilet, but was nice to have while camping. This is a great spot, convenient to town, perfect for a relaxing weekend.

Beautiful and new, be prepared for mosquitos

Pros -

  1. The site itself looks brand new. Everything is up to date, and there were no issues at all.

  2. Pictures don’t do it justice, there plenty of nature here to enjoy the outdoors!

  3. The site we stayed at was very level.

Cons -

  1. Staff policies are strictly enforced. Make sure you don’t forget to turn on your key cards at the end of your stay or you will be charged $25 per card.

  2. MOSQUITOS! The first and last night we stayed the mosquitos were so bad we couldn’t be outside. There were two nights in between that it was tolerable. I went out on the dock one night to fish and they were so thick it was impossible to not get bit by them.

Overall this was a very nice stay, and we would stay here again!

Clean and beautiful views of the lake

Nice clean paved spots facing the lake. Full hookup with playgrounds and a general store. The water park is amazing.

Nashville’s best-kept secret

I’m hesitant to write this review because this is our new close-to-home GO-TO camping spot and we don’t want it to get booked up. 😆 It is new, quiet, and extremely well-priced. Our lakeside spot was $60 per night. Our other lake resort stays in this area have been at least double that! There is a gated entrance, which I like. The staff here is unbelievably welcoming and friendly. The crew is constantly working on cleaning, landscaping and maintenance. This morning they were raking the beach sand because it rained yesterday. There are plenty of pet waste stations and attractive (seriously)trash bins spaced throughout the park. The sites are concrete, level and roomy with full hookups (great water pressure!), new picnic tables and fire rings. There is not one bad location on the lakeside sites. Our personal faves are 69 thru 81…odds/lakefront. There is a swimming beach (see pic) as well as several relaxing spots, a playground, a bark park and a dog washing station (see pic!). There is a bath house, laundry (with 4 brand-new LG front loading washers), a gym (with a universal, an elliptical and a treadmill) and a small store. See pics! Bathhouse is spotless. It is attached to the marina (but the marina is situated on the far end)and they rent kayaks, paddle boards, and golf carts. There are three docks with kayak and jet ski slips. The view of Percy Priest is incredible and serene. I seriously can not recommend this place highly enough. ***They are going to be adding tiny houses, cabins and aqua houses (think Bali, but closer😉).

Quiet and peaceful

Nice quiet campground where I highly recommend getting a spot by the water. A bit un-level in most spots for tent camping. Bathroom and showers are a bit old, but it’s cleaned often and the shower water is hot. Not wowed by this place but it’s close and affordable.

Pools Knob Camp Ground

Another beautiful campground on the edge of a lake. Most campsites were pull through. Management was very friendly and helpful. Campsites for far enough apart so you weren't stacked on top of each other. It was nice to have a site right next to the lake to make it easy for fishing.

Seven Points Camp Ground

Beautiful camping area set right along the shores of an awesome lake. Other campers set far enough away where they weren't on top of each other. Camp managers very friendly and helpful.
