Campground was ok, bathrooms were clean but pool and waterpark not included in price. No discounts for campers. And don't expect internet access. What good is Wifi without it??

Great RV park!! Get away for the weekend or longer, enjoy water slides and/or tree-top zip-lining by day, then venture into Nashville in the evening for some fun and dining. Perfect for those SEC weekends that take you to Vanderbilt.

During a three night stay in a lakeside cabin, we inadvertently locked ourselves out (management only provides one key- go figure) and the emergency number to call was inside without other papers.

We stayed at Nashville shores in a 40 foot motorhome Navigating the roads inside the campground proved to be a chore as they are narrow and have large boulders at the intersections making turns difficult. They also have many speed bumps which are unnecessary. Our site was extremely muddy and our tires sunk down about six inches when backing in... More

I have purchased seasons passes for my daughter and I for the past 6 years. We always have a blast at the park, it is always very clean and safe.

The park itself was ok, but the food was very overpriced. I did not like the fact that you were not allowed to bring in any beverage unless it was water. Another way for them to make more money I assume.
