Nice Campground

We visited here during the summer. I really enjoyed our stay. A couple of things caught a us by surprise.. 1) The steps down to our campsite. Some of the campsites towards the back of the campground have a good amount of stairs. It was okay, but not good for anyone who cannot handle a lot of stairs. 2) There was a lot of boat traffic on the lake, even late into the night. I’m not sure if it is always like this or because there is a marina near by the campground. We could reach the edge of the lake from our campsite and launched out kayaks from there. The boats made it a little difficult to kayak the lake, but some kayakers towards the front of the campground at the day beach seemed to do okay. There’s a small hiking trail in the park also called the “lost spring trail” not much of a spring to see, but a couple of lookout points. Must not be much traffic through the trail anymore, the lookouts were a little overgrown. Overall the campground was nice, lots of access to the water if you like to fish and some very beautiful views. Pet friendly! Clean!

Great State Park close to our house

There are several nice playgrounds, ranger led activities, a nature center that my kids loved, a butterfly garden, several short hikes that are good for kids. There are several sinkholes and cedar glades. There are also some caves you can explore if you want to get muddy. We often go here for day visits, but the overnight amenities are also nice. They no longer have horse stables.

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.

Great place for Labor Day weekend

Spent two nights here for Labor Day 2020. We stayed on the center strip in the primitive area. The facilities were well maintained and clean. Each site has a concrete picnic table, fire ring, and a moveable lantern hook. The primitive area has several water spigots to use (near each restroom and a few in between).

The outer loop sites all have electric and water hookups, but the restrooms are all on the upper level where the primitive sites are. If you don’t have your own bathroom, it’s a bit of a hill to climb and there’s only a couple spots to do it.

Overall, we loved it and we’ll be back for sure.

Nashville hidden gem

Perfect for people who like to be surrounded with nature. Very clean and well maintained spots. Great price. Water and electric but no sewer. There is a dump station in the campground.

Wanted something close to Nashville

It was very quiet because nothing was open during the week. We stayed sun to Thurs water park is only open on the weekend. The lake is very pretty but it's just to look at unless you want to drop a fortune to rent a jet ski or boat there is no beach access unless you pay to enter the water park which isn't open right now. Nashville is a really cool town, most everything is open now with a few exceptions.oh yea no one mentioned that this place is on the flight path of the international airport.

Different way to camp

The state park is quite large. The campground is in the back near the marina but it is still nice and quiet. There is a small camp store that has ice and very few other things. The campground is clean and well maintained. The sites are what is completely different than any campground I have ever been too. They are wooden platforms that you drive on. They are pretty large and some larger than others depending on the site. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN PICKING YOUR SITE!!!! I didn’t pay much attention to the incline that it said my site had. When we gat there it was a very steep incline. I was only pulling a pop up but by looking at the platform I wasn’t the only one that had trouble getting into this site. After trying several different directions and bottoming out every time I just decided to unhook and push the camper into place. That was fun too. Once everything was in place it was a nice site. Our second afternoon there we had a pretty big thunderstorm that lasted into the night. Normally everything would be muddy and dirty from the storm but the wood platform was nice. Didn’t even mind letting the dogs out. There are sites along the water that I would recommend for the view. We got one on the inside loop as it was a last minute trip. All in all not a bad campground and a new camping experience.

Great views of the lake on the platforms

Secluded and beautiful park with excellent restroom facilities. We stayed in a lot right on the lake and hiked down a few rocks to go swimming in the lake before dinner. Cooked on the grill next to our platform. Saw max 3 or 4 people the entire time. Would definitely return. Lots of elevation in the site—be prepared to walk uphill to the toilets!
