Tennessee Campgrounds

My wife and I are traveling to Tennessee with our kids, both 8, in April 2019 Looking for nice campgrounds that are family friendly, and of course nice. Near water would be great as I would love to rent a boat as well and cruise some of the fantastic rivers. Any recommendations?

Hi,

Tennessee is big man not sure where you're heading.

We stayed here a few https://www.bluewaterdayton.com
They have a marina and rent boats.
Very nice campground.

Give us some more information as to where in Tennessee you will be heading for and I think you'll get more answers as to campgrounds in the area or areas you are headed for. Have fun on that trip, by the way. Great State to explore!

I dont actually have a plan on where, I have never been there before so I am open to whatever people have to offer. I am hoping this week i might narrow it down to a more specific location. Nashville or memphis? Obviously not in the city's but maybe around those areas I just dont know.,

Check out Lock A Campground ( COE park), it is a updated park with many roomy sites that back right up to the banks of the Columbia River just NE of Nashville. Also when near Memphis we stay just across the river at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Campground south of West Memphis. Remember that both of these parks are right on rivers and are usually very hot and humid in the middle of the summer. Both campgrounds have sites that are right on the river and we enjoy watching the barge traffic.

Tennessee may not be the biggest state but it is WIDE (west to east.)

Nashville/Memphis is the western half of the state. Based on that:

In Memphis I would stay in Arkansas at Tom Sawyer RV Park directly on the Mississippi. Nice views of the river boat traffic from your site.

Many more possibilities in Nashville. Montgomery Bell out a bit at Dickson. Seven Point COE on Lake J. Percy Priest Lake. There are also several more park around that same lake.

Between Memphis and Nashville there is the Natchez Trace State Park which is on a lake but not near any urban attractions.

These are just campgrounds I have stayed in and am familiar with. There are lots of other possibilities--especially if you include the eastern part of the state bordering on the Great Smoky Mountains, Knoxville and Chattanooga.

After reading my above post, l noticed a directional mistake. COE Lock A Campground is NW, not NE of Nashville. Is there a way to edit a post?

Stay away from the Rv Park at Graceland. It is a filthy dump, IMO.

If you get up Gatlinburg way, we like campground just east of Gatlinburg on 321. Itís very near the City but is very quiet and has a great pool and hot tub.

Lots of nice hiking in the mountains, and I donít think you are far from a Lake for renting a boat.

Lots of fun in Tennessee.

Stay away from the KOA on the far Eastern End of Tenn right off of 40. This is a dump. Went there and stayed about 30 minutes before hooking up and leaving.

I second Blue Water Resort in Dayton, Cove Creek is nice up in Wears Valley, Raccoon Mountain in Chattanooga is cool. Got a nice cave complex to visit. Honeysuckle Meadows is also nice in Wears Valley. If going to Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge Area better off staying in Wears Valley. The rest of the resorts close to the parkway have sites that you almost cant open your awning without hitting another RV. Nice Area , Lots to do and See.

Little River Campground in Townsend, Tn
Davey Crockett campground at the 311 mile marker on I-40
Both are great.

There is a nice campground east of Nashville called Bean Pot. Nice friendly people and relatively private. In Nashville, there are three camp grounds that are a little pricy but clean and convenient. A Yogi Bear, KOA and Two Rivers.. They are situated on near the Grand Ole Opry. Outside of Nashville (about 20 minutes) in Goodletsville, named Grand Ole RV Resort and Market. If you go to Nashville, check out The Fox Cocktail Club. My son is 1/2 owner. Memphis really doesn't have good RV Parks. The only one in Memphis is across the street to Graceland called Heartbreak Hotel & Campground. OK but neighborhood is iffy. Only three things in Memphis worth visiting in my opinion is Graceland (only to say you did it), Beale Street (kinda wild and only about 2 blocks long) and the Bass Shop Pyramid (very cool).

As an East Tennessee native, there are a several excellent campgrounds in the area. Some that I recommend:
-Anchor Down RV Resort, Dandridge. Gorgeous campground not far from Sevierville/Gatlinburg. Tends to book early.
-Riveredge, Pigeon Forge. Outskirts of Pigeon Forge closest to Gatlinburg. Convenient to both PF and G'burg.
-Big Meadow Campground, Townsend. Campground sits next to a creek. Tubing very close by. Campground not far from Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

When we visit our daughter in Nashville:
-Nashville KOA, 2626 Music Valley Drive. Convenient to Opryland Hotel and Opry Mills. Shuttle service downtown. Plenty of activities for the kids.

Hope this helps.

There is a really nice state park called Fall Creek Falls, Fall Creek, TN. They have a really nice lake, good restaurant with breakfast buffets every day, the falls are the highest falls east of the Mississippi. Call for directions because the GPS will send you to the top of the smokey's and then back down, not a great ride with camper. The directions they will give you is way better. Great family spot, zip lines, golf coarse, deer everywhere, fishing, etc. They have full hookups but you may want to make reservations early.

I second Fall Creek Falls. I thought it was actually in Pikeville. Great park, Great trails Beautiful Fall's just all around a nice park. If you will be there in early April you will really enjoy the dogwoods in bloom. Love that place. You don't even have to leave the park for anything as mentioned before park store larger than most, Restaurant.

Natchez Trace state park. It has everything! Your campground receipt allows you and your guests to fish in any of the park lakes, rivers, or streams.

https://tnstateparks.com/lodging/campgrounds


Huge RV sites with full-hook-ups including 50 amps.


Here is a picture of our site when last visiting.
