RV Park Recommendations for Nashville & Chattanooga and in-between

Heading south last week of March. Will be doing an overnight heading down around either Nashville, Chattanooga, or somewhere in-between depending on how we are doing. On the return, plan to stay for a couple of days in Nashville and see some things there. Any suggested RV parks for those areas? Have a 31 foot TT.

Nashville KOA. close to grand ole opry. get tickets early if you want to see a show.
good food at the "cock of the walk" restaurant, just up the road from the KOA.
check the office for where to get tour bus. the Reiman auditorium, [original opry land] is a must see.

Thanks guys, I'll check out those campgrounds. But am I wrong..the pricing at the KOA's always looks to me to be a bit higher than other campgrounds.

a few years back we stayed at 2 rivers campground and it was very nice. Look into a shuttle van that will pick you up at the campground take you to Downtown and back to your trailer. Great deal and no worry about driving or parking in the city. You also might like a few adult drinks.

This KOA has a hot tub in addition to the pool, shows movies, has coffee/donuts in the morning, etc. A nice place, and pretty spread out. A KOA membership ($24/yr) saves you 10% They always have a nice store, don't get worked up about beer/wine, in fact sell it in their stores. To us, KOA means camping, not just parking and hook ups. To each their own!

We have stayed at the Nashville KOA and the Jellystone Park in Nashville. There are three campgrounds located on Music Valley Drive very near the Opryland Hotel, the Grand Ole Opry, and Opry Mills Mall. Two Rivers is the third, but we have not stayed there. The KOA and Jellystone have both been remodeled since being damaged in the 2010 flood. Both are nice, but the KOA sites are very tight unless you luck into one of the big rig friendly sites, which are limited in number. I liked Jellystone better personally.

If you stay at one of these three, Camping World is in walking distance of any of them. Take time to eat dinner at the Cock of the Walk, located next door to the KOA.

If you don't mind being a few miles out of Nashville, check out Seven Points and Cedar Creek Campgrounds. Both are Corps of Engineers campgrounds and are very nice. They stay booked up, so you might want to check into reservations now if you are interested. They aren't far from Nashville and offer a little bit more of a camping feel than the ones in the Opry area. Fall Creek Falls State Park is also very nice, but is a bit further out than the COE campgrounds. Cedars of Lebanon State Park is near Nashville, but isn't as nice as Fall Creek Falls.

I am following this thread with interest as we are planning a visit to Nashville early next month on our way home from Florida. Other stops will include the Florida panhandle, Memphis and Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. We had originally planned a visit to DC this year on our way home, but since we missed Nashville on the way home from our trip out west last fall due to weather, we are doing that instead.

We stayed a at a lot of KOAs on our trip last fall and tend to gravitate towards them. The post about the sites at the Nashville KOA being tight is a concern. We encountered that at several KOAs last fall. I guess the campgrounds are not keeping up with the increase in size of RVs over the years.
