This recreation area is part of Old Hickory Lake
We have camped at Bledsoe creek state park 3 times and will go back. One of the best small campgrounds ever. They are clean, spacious and the bath houses are clean and well stocked. The campsites are paved, level and most of them are partially shaded to shaded. The attendants are all friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this state park to anyone and everyone.
This park was my home for a week or so and it was so amazing to enjoy. Deer would just walk up near you and just say hello. It's so peaceful and it allows me to think that there's not all bad here on Earth
Bledsoe Creek is a small state park, but still very pretty and a nice area to camp. We first camped here after watching the Great American Eclipse from the park, and although the park was packed that day (because it was in the path of totality), in the evening the campground was still clean and well run. One of the toilet buildings had closed down, but only because of the hundreds of eclipse watchers in only a morning- otherwise should have no problems. Most of the campsites are not super far apart from each other, but there are trees and lots of shade so it still feels fairly private. Bathrooms were close enough and clean, and the staff at the visitor center was very friendly and helpful.
Lots of people took kayaks and boats out on the water, and there are a few dock spots where people were fishing. The trails are well marked and in great shape, and were almost all flat so nice for going on an easy run! There are only a few trails and areas in the park to explore, so it might not be the best place to camp for multiple nights or focus a trip on, but is great if you are traveling through that area and want a nice place to take a walk and camp for a night.
Bbeautiful hiking on calm trails and lots of wildlife! And fishing!
We stayed right on the water & one of the trails, it was so beautiful. Unfortunately, it was our first time taking our puppy & she got loose, so we left early In the mornIng, BUT we are definitely planning on going back with our camper! Spots are very spacious & cell service was good. The bathrooms were clean & maintained. There were awesome trees around, I did set up my hammock here & read a good book for a bit! Sorry, I’m lacking photos, taking our puppy for the first time (In a tent) was a handful!
We stayed at site 5. Lots of pull through sites. Nice walking trails, with lots of wildlife very close. Close to the water for fishing or Kayaking.
Really had a great big site with tons of room for camper and tent to spread out. Lots of grassy areas and lake fishing.
Bledsoe Creek has a great hiking trail and clean picnic areas. The park is very well maintained.
The park was wet and infested with BOY SCOUTS!!! :) Looked like they were having rainy fun. Facilities were clean, trails and signage well maintained. Camping sites spaced well with room for more then one tent. Historical stuff too.
This is not one of the larger state parks in TN - but I have to say it is one of the friendliest we have visited. You do not always need a reservation as the park holds out a couple spaces for drive ups. Firewood available (please do not bring your own). 2 other state parks are less than 30 miles away Cedars of Lebanon and Long Hunter (no camping available there). Bring your boat! Great fishing! The lakeside trail is nice and easy. Bring oil and cornmeal for a great fish dinner!
