Unplug. Escape. Make Memories.
Piney River Resort is located on the banks of the beautiful Piney River and surrounded by the lush rolling hills of Tennessee, just 50 miles from Downtown Nashville. Come enjoy remarkable experiences on our Riverfront, Premium,& Standard RV Sites while connecting with your family and friends. We changed our name but the beauty, hospitality, and strong family values remain.
The resort is pretty remote and the last mile of the road in is a little sporty. Definitely follow the campground’s directions, don’t rely on GPS or other services, as the campground directions are the only viable way in, particularly for Class As. The main campground is typical for RV resorts, sites pretty close together and in the open, but the sites along the river, where we were(site 1), all have concrete pads, are reasonably spaced and right on the river. Some have shelters over their picnic tables. The staff is very friendly, attentive and helpful. AT&T had 1 bar and 0.04 MB/s w/o a booster, 2 bars and 0.2 MB/s with it. Overall WiFi was“ok” with data rates from 0.2 MB/s up to 1.1 MB/s. Satellite coverage should be good at any of the sites. We had visibility to all 3 DISH west satellites, so we didn’t try OTA channels.
Staff we talked to was very kind but the drive in from the highway was very scary on narrow, windy roads with dropoffs on the side. We took the staff recommended route in and Co-Pilot's route out and both were scary in our Class A towing a car hauler. We had a site up on hill farther from the river (which was lovely) but we couldn't get level and couldn't put our slides out. All around rough stay. I'd say this is a much better stay for smaller RVs.
Our second time visiting PRRR. We stayed up the hill on a corner lot during the 4th of July. It was our first time and it was a wonderful experience. We ventured down the hill and spent time on the water. We had plenty of space to roam around in the river even while visiting during a peak time. So naturally we booked again and ended up snagging a beautiful riverside location at pad #9 The park owner Casey and Grounds manager Mike are the best and so gracious! We had a wonderful time exploring the property. Full hooks ups and a level pad made setup a breeze. Allen the park host even guided us in our spot and gave assistance getting back in. They do a great job keeping the grounds clean and well manicured. We love this spot and it will be a regular stop for us here in Tennessee. Some of the best access to the Piney right here. Highly recommend!
Very friendly, family-owned rv resort. Camp hosts were delightful and Michael came to greet us personally. He took us through the precious tiny houses that they rent. We swam and waded in the (very clean) river and watched kids jumping off of the rock ledge. No frills, but very clean. Downside is there are not many sites near the water. They do have big plans for expansion!
Tip💡: follow the directions on their website!
Can’t say enough great things! This is a true hidden gem. The river is not a tourist Trap and we floated with locals. Super low key. Amazing camp hosts. We will be back!
And we’ve been back, twice. 🤘
This place is amazing! Clean, quiet and waterfront. We stayed in a river front pavilion. That side of the campground is not crowded. The water is crystal clear and cold. We sat in beach chairs and let the current wash over us. The swimming hole was great! We loved watching the younger crowd jump off the cliff into the water. Fishing and kayaking too! The roads to get here are not the norm but we had no issues. Just be sure to follow the directions the hosts send you. Speaking of the staff..the nicest people you will ever meet!
Very peaceful campground right on the river! Staff was very helpful. We stayed at a site with a pavilion right on the river and it was great! Our girls enjoyed swimming, fishing, and kayaking. Paved sites, fire ring, fire wood for sale, very clean campground, and only 45 mins to Nashville. Easy drive to Loveless Cafe for lunch.
We had no idea what a gem this park would be when we booked it. The staff is amazing! And the location right on the river can’t be beat! We’ve enjoyed daily time sitting by the river while our kids play and swim. The cell signal is not great but they have a tower being installed close by within the next few months. AT&T has about 1 bar up on the hill sites. We have an antenna that boosts our signal and has given us 2-3 bars which is totally usable. We just can’t recommend this place enough!
Very personable owners and staff, they greet you when you arrive and check with you and say goodbye when you leave. Like friends you never knew you had. The campsites are nice and level, very clean. The quietest campground we've ever stayed at. Only recreational things to do is swim in the river, catch crawfish, and fish. Kayaking the piney river is a must. They are working on adding amenities, playground, etc. We will definitely be back.
We arrived at the Piney River RV campground and we were expertly directed into our site. We chose a site along the beautiful Piney River with full hook-ups, level cement pad, pavilion with lights and ceiling fan, kind neighbors and the wonderful sounds of silence.
