Eh...

This campground is adequate for close proximity to Nashville while still in the wilderness. I highly suggest a campsite on the water side. The ones across the street are pretty wooded and not ideal for tent camping. The site I was given was awkwardly sloped and the small areas for tents were quite…

About This Campground

Anderson Road Campground is a lakeside oasis in the green hills of Tennessee, providing campers with countless recreational activities on the lake and in the surrounding woods and grasslands.

Recreation

The lake provides a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities for millions of visitors each year. Because of the temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, visitors have numerous activities to choose from, including fishing, hunting, picnicking, boating, canoeing, hiking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing.

Fishing opportunities abound at J. Percy Priest Lake, with a wide variety of species available, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappie and Cherokee bass. Other species such as catfish, bluegill, bream and trout provide excellent opportunities for younger anglers.

Anderson Road Fitness Trail is a paved trail winding a little over a mile through the cedar glade area beside the lake.

Facilities

Anderson Road Campground offers 37 shady and spacious campsites. The campground features drinking water, a dump station, shower house and a boat ramp. Near the campground is a Day Use area that campers can access with their hangtags, where a swimming beach is provided, allowing guests to take advantage of the vast, sparkling lake. The Day Use also provides picnic tables, grills, a shelter and playground. Please note this area may be closed on the weekends due to high volume of visitors in the area.

Natural Features

J. Percy Priest Dam and Lake was one of the first Corps of Engineers lakes to have recreation as part of its mission. The dam, completed in 1968, impounds 42 miles, with 14,200 surface acres of water.

In soothing contrast to the sparkling waters of the lake are the adjacent 19,087 acres of grasslands and woodlands.

A highlight of the region, the Cedar Glades Natural Area, is home to countless wildlife and plant species, including the Tennessee coneflower.

Nearby Attractions
