Well kept grounds, helpful hosts and clean facilities make this mostly shady campground a winner. Book early and score a waterfront site if your fortunate.


We were in primitive site I and it was a perfect spot to camp on a hot day. The sun never touched our tent. They offer kayak rentals and they are good sturdy ones at a reasonable rate. There is no swimming but we enjoyed fishing. They have A honey locus tree on one of the trails which was cool. I had never seen one. They are pet friendly and pets are allowed leashes on all the hiking trails. The animals are not scared of humans or dogs. We had squirrels, birds, deer and turkey join us at our camp site.

Easy primitive campingexperience with kids

Bledsoe is great for little kids (which is now my primary criteria when judging a park). There is a flat trail next to the lake that my two year old loves to run up and down, playgrounds, and a story trail. There are also some nice hiking trails with beautiful views of the lake (for me) and lots of bugs and turtles (for the toddler).

While most of the campsites have RV hookups, there are several primitive sites next to the lake that are away from all the generator noise. These sites have ample room and a nice view of the lake.

Great camping for families that is a short drive from Nashville.

Beautiful and welcoming rangers

Easy hiking trails with little to moderate inclines and terrain. Around 5-7 miles of trails, plenty of camping sites. I always see wildlife when i visit this park. It is lakeside with docks available and kayak rentals

Small but suitable

This is a small area but has some nice trails. Camping is quiet most nights and the water is calm for those who like to fish.

Loved our stay

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Bledsoe Creek State Park! Campground was very clean. Plenty of spaces between sites. State park officers were very friendly. We will definitely return again!

beautiful spot!

quiet, relaxing & comfortable spots. lots of deer and wildlife. the campground hosts were accommodating and friendly!

Awesome campground

Quiet spot. Lots of wildlife. Great trails. Will definitely go back!

Beautiful park.

Close drive to town, but far enough out not to have the noise. Really clean campground and nice bathhouses. Several areas for activities. And some really nice spots with several being right on the water. The only drawback is there is no swimming. Its a really great place for when it's too cold to swim anyway. Lots of hiking areas to.

Great campground

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.
