I love it here.

There are free hot showers, laundry facilities in the summer, and it's clean and well kept. It's not too far from Nashville. White Bluff, the closest town, is only a few miles away and is a cute little town. Would highly recommend.

Very nice place

The site I had was a little awkward backing into and the water hookup was on the wrong side for my camper. Nice facilities.

GREAT FOR GROUPS/FAMILIES

We've stayed 6 times at MB, it's my partners fave place to go.

FAMILIES +++ With a great pavilion, Vb court, ball diamond, and playground, the far side of the camp is perfect for families, groups, and events. Our fave sites are 1-8, with #1+2 right next to the creek and the most updated bathrooms. If you don't want kiddos walking through your campsite to get to the playground, you may want to choose a higher number.

BATHROOMS there's three bathroom facilities; two newer ones and an older one. Ironically, the older one has a washer and dryer, bring quarters. Far side of the camp has tents and creekside spots, but a lot.of folks with big RVs tend to do the middle spots, they're more easily accessible.

ICE AND FIREWOOD Are for sale, $5 a bag/bundle. Super helpful staff. Unlike most camps that have gates, you can pull in, and simply stop with enough room for others to go around.

THINGS TO DO There's some historic hiking trail, historic old church/cabins, as well as the welcome center, the Inn, lake to swim, and a golf course nearby.

DRIVE AROUND With such an expansive park, aside from the camping area, you'll want to drive around to see everything, and bring your walking shoes if you prefer to hike.

Check out the creekside campsites and book early if you want to accommodate your group OR get a spot. Sites are able to booked 6 months ahead, so think ahead.

Nature

Very green and relaxing. Sites are a good size and the bathrooms are decent.

Hiking, biking, camping, kayaking, paddle boarding

Decent campground ⛺️ we were on site 67 which I would recommend. It’s on a hill with rocks, roots poison ivy as well as poison oak. So stay away from the side of site 67!

Other than that there is 3 lakes, and harpeth rive you can play in or fish.

Not very happy with this park

Not very happy with this campground the campsite was hard for us to place out tent on not much room and unlevel ground. the campsite was overcrowded too close together no privacy. WiFi was horrible. not very many activities to do for family or kids walking trails  not clear enough that we almost stepped on snakes the swimming Beach area was very small and only went to an adults waste the fishing spots were not the greatest really hard for kids to fish.

Great Campground

Everything you need, plus a creek runs through it. Trails go through campsite also. Highly recommended.

Just shy of awesome

The park was beautiful. We enjoyed all the little things - the lake beach, kayaking, the chapel, hiking, and beautiful scenery. Camping was really good…just wish we could have gotten a site with sewer. Our site #89 was near the back and was spacious and quiet, close to a wading creek and hiking trails. The sites nearest the front and the camp store were smaller and less shaded and had busy traffic. If staying near a holiday, plan on booking at least 2-3 months out.

Our biggest disappointment was the mountain biking. The hiking trails were in such good shape, we were disappointed to find the biking trails required a truck drive outside the actual park and were not as well maintained, especially with summer foliage. Trails were not enjoyable for our teenagers who race on school teams. Probably more advanced riders would enjoy the technical aspects - lots of uphill, roots, and rocks. No true family trail or flow anywhere on the trails, even those marked easy/beginner.

Super close and quiet

Great RV sites with full hookups. Creek behind most. Will be back for sure.

Great Spot on the Creek

We stayed at site 110. It was great! We have a large Toy Hauler and we had plenty of room. We will definitely be back
