Camping in Nashville

We have a dealer music show to go to in Nashville next June so I guess we will make a week out of it for vacation we will be traveling with our 9 year old son so looking on the web I came across Jellystone park Kinda pricey is it worth it? Any other ideas? Just don't want to make the same mistake that I made this year on vacation campgrounds.

Nashville camping is kinda pricy on Music Valley Drive but convienient, Some of them have pools, a game room and activities. There are go carts near by. I think it will be OK for your son. There are quite a few ACE sites close by near Percy Priest Lake that are reasonable and there is good fishing there too.

Hey there Becky,

How those Runnin' Rebs gonna look this year? How does everyone like the new coach? It's about time for him to prove that recruiting reputation he came in with. We'll be looking at them with great anticipation this season.

We've stayed next door to Jellystone on numerous occasions (KOA) and found the location very convenient. Jellystone looks VERY suited to kids.

Camping World right next door and Opryland just down the street. A bit of a drive to Music Row though.

Have a great trip!

Pop, Rebs look kinda slim can't seem to find a quarter back to re-place that Manning boy, Coach O will have to pull something out of the hat this year or like some others he may have to go on down the road.

Thanks for the info folks, I also had noticed the KOA. And they both seem to have shade and a pool that's tops on the list.

Try looking for county campgrounds. They are often cheaper, better run and not so crowed. I think that might be Davidson CO.

Cages Bend on Old Hickory Lake, northeast of Nashville and about 8 miles Southwest of Gallatin, TN. It is run by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, is a nice campground with only 43 sites. Check out About Us - Recreation.gov which is now Federal recreation, camping and tour reservation information - Recreation.gov for more info. There is fishing, boating and water skiing there. It is open through November if memory serves me right. The campground is located on a grassy knoll overlooking the lake.

Cedar Creek is just south of that with 60 sites. It is also run by the Corp of Engineers and is a nice park with plenty of space between sites. This campground closes sometime in October.

There may also be some private campgrounds near Percy Priest Lake but I can't say. Hope this helps you some.

Becky,
You'll most likely find that the KOA has a bit more shade than the Jellystone.

I used to live in the Nash about 7 years ago.Two campgrounds that you should NOT go to:Music city c/g in Lavernge (s.e. on I-24),and the one on Dickerson rd (off I-65 can't remember the name).Drug dealers/use'ers,hookers,you name it,their there.Music city was taken over/ran by the police because it got so bad.I read about 'em in the newspaper quite often.The best/safest would be the Briley parkway/opry land area.

Becky,
Let me know how your stay is. I go to the Ashland City Dam Lock A west of Nashville in Cheap Hill, TN. twice a year which is run by the Corp of Engineers. I have always had fun (except for the one time I had an electrical problem with my power cord plug).

Becky…My wife and I tent camp often at Poole Konobs campground just a few miles south of Nashville in LaVergne. It’s a COE site, theirs tons of shade, great lake views, and is very well patrolled by the locale sheriff. Take a look at this site Tennessee Vacation - Poole Knobs Campground
