Seven Points Campground is a lakeside oasis in the green hills of Tennessee, providing visitors with countless recreational activities on the lake and the surrounding miles of woods and grasslands.
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, striped bass, Cherokee bass, and white bass. Other species such as catfish, bluegill, bream and trout provide excellent opportunities for younger anglers.
The Three Hickories Nature Trail is located in nearby Cook Recreation Area and features a 1.6 miles of nature trail through the wooded area.
Seven Points Campground offers 59 shady and spacious campsites, along with two large group picnic shelters. The campground features drinking water, a dump station, flush toilets and hot showers, creating a comfortable camping experience. A boat ramp and swimming beach are provided, allowing guests to take advantage of the vast, sparkling lake. The group picnic shelters are located in the Day Use Area and can accommodate more than 100 guests each, making Seven Points an ideal spot for large parties and family functions.
J. Percy Priest Dam and Lake was one of the first Corps of Engineers lakes to have recreation as part of its justification. 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, Couchville Cedar Glade Natural Area, is home to wildlife and rare plant species, including the Tennessee coneflower.
J. Percy Priest Lake is conveniently located about 10 miles east of downtown Nashville, offering visitors countless cultural activities in addition to the conveniences of a metro area.

By far the nicest campground we have ever stayed at. Water and electric sites and very spacious. Lakeside sites. Blacktop pad sites and level where your rig sits. Tables, fire rings, cooking grills, and limestone site. Well maintained. Very clean. Nice beach. Hosts all very pleasant and attentive. Doesn't get much better than this. 3rd year here and will be back.
We have stayed at Seven Points around Memorial Day for 3 years now. This year was fabulous! Love the improvements they have made and the clear out they did on some of the spots. We had great neighbors and enjoyed the beach! We love how it is secluded and clearly camping but minutes from shopping!
There are sites on the water, but you have to reserve them early. You can see the lake on most of the sites. It is well kept and very safe. This campground fills up fast so you need to reserve your site fast. It has a boat ramp if you bring your boat, jet ski,etc. It also has a beach where you can swim. We have camped in this campground many times and never had any trouble.
I’ve camped here several times and always try to get a spot on or across from the lake. The bathrooms are nice and camp sites are set up to be quite spacious/private with good tree coverage for even summer camping. Love that it’s so close to Nashville and even close enough to make a morning coffee run if you forget to pack yours.
I rated this one five stars based on kid activities. However, if you don't have kids, it might not be the one for you.
I made a tour of campgrounds and lake recreation spots near Nashville TN during an extended trip where I had to be there to keynote some conferences. This spot was among my favorites.
Camping- The camping is normal. Nothing special, but perfectly adequate. All you need and nothing more. The spots are beautiful though. Right on the water.
Grounds- The grounds here were very well kept. This campground has a nice playground and an official roped off swimming area, despite the really ominous 'people have died here' sign.
A great campground for families near Nashville and on the lake.
- Relaxing quite atmosphere

VERY nice campground! Everything is very well kept and neat. We were located close to all of the sights we were going to and had the bonus of a very scenic campground to explore! I highly recommend you check this place out!
These campsites are great - nice and spread out and tucked in the woods. Plus, the campsites closest to the lakes are right on the water or across the road from the water, so great for fishing and gorgeous sunsets too! The only issue was that they have a skunk problem - two skunks at various times wandered into our campsite. Luckily we did not get sprayed as they were obviously used to people, but it did put a damper on the campfire and Smores time as we high-tailed it into the camper for the night.
