I got a Groupon special for the waterpark and visited on a Friday morning in early August. At first, the lines were not too long for rides but they got progressively much longer as it got later. The park was clean and well-maintained. We were disappointed that several rides were closed, including the lazy river, Music City Racer, and Kayak... More

We went on a Friday when kids were back in school so it was a lot more relaxing. I had won free tickets so we thought we would check it out. First the parking was $9, which I thought was a little high. Also, three of the attractions were closed. I do not know why, but if I had paid... More

The day that we went, lucky it was cloudy or there would have been even more people there. Half of the adult rides were shut down, so there was extra long lines at every thing that was open. The worst part was the lazy river. The lazy river should be something that you can always do, but it's not. They... More

Had a great day with kids. Food and drink are a bit expensive and not a lot of healthy choices. Beautiful area and camp ground

Great RV park. Waterpark on site, zip line on site, Lake on site with water sports rentals. If you have kids this is a really, really awesome place. Bathrooms were okay, showers are small. Pet friendly, nice office and gift shop. Good concrete pads and firepits but sites are small to medium in size. They have a shuttle several times... More

This Waterpark is on the shores of a lake. There is a wave pool, lazy river, water playground, as well as multiple slides. The park was relatively clean and there were plenty of chairs near the wave pool. There were plenty of options to cool off and attractions for younger kids as well as my teenage boys. It is difficult... More

Nashville shores is like the terd in the toilet that sinks slowly. The management has given to many people an opportunity to purchase season passes at a cheap price causing complete over packing of a Waterpark that has very few floats for its attractions and very expensive concessions and food prices. It's clear that management is just trying to get... More

Thank you for visiting Nashville Shores and for your comments. We are sorry that you believe the park is sinking. We have invested millions of dollars in the facility in the past 5 years including a new wave pool, lazy river, water treehouse, a 4 story family water slide, new restrooms, new concessions and many other improvements. If you want... More

Treetop adventures was amazing. The waterpark was nice. The accommodations were not. Our cabin on arrival had water standing in the floor, spider webs hanging from ceiling and corners and cable did not work. WiFi only works if you sit at the office. We complained. Air and cable fixed immediately. A housekeeper came down and knocked spiders down with broom,... More

This was a decent place to visit. The bathrooms were clean and I liked the fact that they take the time to search all bags upon entering the water park. I would recommend going early ( around 10am) to get a good seat with shade. I took three children there today ( ages 15, 10 & 8 years old), they... More

Kids don't mind crowds as much as I do, but when we go with friends, my friend and I avoid the waterslides and find places to stay cool and chill together while the kids play. The lines are long for waterslides, which the kids don't seem to mind, but the pools and lazy river are always available. They could improve... More
