It's just an average water park.

Not much to do there really. After you go year after year, it gets pretty dull. If you aren't under 8, there's not that much excitement anymore. Food is way over priced. For the... read more

If your going more than one time, it's cheaper to buy a season pass! I have a 3 year old and he loved the kid sections, I wish they were together, so we wouldn't have to move, but their not far away from each other. The food is pricey, but just bring a cooler and leave it in the car,... More

My family and I camped at Nashville shores recently and we had a great time! We were very happy with the campground itself. It was very clean and probably one of the most quiet campgrounds we have ever been too. We had a lake spot, which was amazing, as we backed our fifth wheel right up to the lake. The... More

My husband and I had a fantastic time at Nashville Shores this Memorial Day weekend! We visited the Treetop ropes courses last year and loved it, so we had to try out the water park. The grounds and unique lake setting were BEAUTIFUL, and the staff was super friendly and helpful. My favorites were The Big Scream, the Big Kahuna... More

Actually enjoyed the cabins but don't rent a pontoon boat there. 350 dollars for the day 10 am until 5 pm.....but the aluminum railing around the front of the boat broke and you could tell it had been re-welded multiple times and there were screw holes where the screws had been stripped out and new holes were made. We told... More

Unless your taking the kids and spending the day at the water park and zip lines, the RV park must be incredibly noisy as it is literally feet away from the water slides. We visited before the Water Park was open and it was very peaceful, despite the construction of a ne slide that was going on. Very easy park... More

I've been visiting Nashville Shores, for many years and I always have a wonderful time. They have awesome pools, lots of water slides and water attractions. My favorite is the water bucket drop. The park isn't too large which is a good thing. Nashville Shores, is a wonderful place for families! They have a swimming beach, too and it is... More

A little pricey, but very fun ropes course. Did all 4...the last one is pretty challenging, but worth it. The rest of my group quit after 3, which still makes for a full afternoon. Guides are a bit underwhelming, but looks like it's a fun summer job for them. You can make it as easy or as hard as you... More

Thank you for visiting Nashville Shores and for your review. We are always looking to add more excitement to the waterpark and in 2015 we are adding a massive, new attraction called the Big Kahuna. This 6-story family raft slide is an exciting, mega-tube serpentine attraction that will blast visitors into a dark, enclosed tunnel with a series of unpredictable... More
