Loud for tent campers

We are new-ish to camping and were directed here by the nice lady at Lock A once we were told the first come first serve sights were taken and this place had one sight available. The grounds are well kept and the showers are very nice. We pitched our tent on comfortable ground and were serenaded by the sounds of trucks coming down the bridge overhead with their jakes on at night. Bring earplugs if you are in a tent. Nice staff at checkin and cleaning crew very thorough.

RV sites on river

Hard to get reservations because they allow people to book out every weekend for the entire season and not even show up all of thier booked with down. Reservations need changes. noon should be able to treat a site as if they own it and keep it booked every weekend all season. Beautiful spot if you can get in.

Only minus is.....

Harpeth River Bridge Campground is newer, small and very nice. Only 15 sites including the campground hosts.

Water and electric on sites, my favorite was 8, very usable with Tentsile Tent and right on the water.

Watersports are the only flavor on the menu. But!!! There are several recreation areas nearby to enjoy in addition to Harpeth.
