One of the many appeals of RVing is that you can hit the open road on your own schedule and kick back in your own self-contained camper while visiting some of the most beautiful places on earth. And in the age of COVID-19, that socially-distant approach is more important than ever. In honor of National RV Day (June 7) we've rounded up our favorite RV parks in and around Nashville.
Clarksville RV Park
Located outside the quaint Clarksville, Tennesee, and 45 minutes from Nashville, Clarksville RV Park is a boon for those who want to pull up, pull through and be on their way. But for those who wish to explore nature, the Cumberland River, Dunbar Cave and Clarksville Greenway are all nearby. It can easily accomodate large RVs, has 50- and 30-amp hookups, free WiFi and much more. Check in is available remotely.
Fall Hollow RV Park
Just 70 miles south of Nashville, Fall Hollow RV Park affords opportunites to explore the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway, a 444-mile recreational road that winds through Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. There are RV hookups for electrical, sewage and water; in all, there are 19 full hookup sites.
Grand Ole RV Resort
Approximately 12 miles from Opry Mills, Goodlettsville's Grand Ole RV Resort is an 8.65-acre, family-owned-and-operated campground. It has dozens of 50- and 30-amp RV sites and is close to many hiking trails, the Cumberland River and Old Hickory Lake, a popular fishing spot.
Nashville KOA Resort
Pull-through and back-in campgrounds at 50 and 30 amps are available at the Nashville KOA Resort. Among its many amenities are a natural playground for kids, a dog park, bicycle rentals and movies beneath the stars. The resort's pool is currently open.
Nashville Shores Lakeside Resort
One of the most lauded campgrounds in the Nashville area thanks to its scenic views of J. Percy Priest Lake, Nashville Shores Lakeside Resort is indeed top notch. There are 85 full hookup sites available with pull-through and back-in options; those who opt for back-in will directly front the water.
Natchez Trace RV Campground
Also supremely picturesque is the nature-focused Natchez Trace RV Campground, set within an 830-acre forested preserve. It's right off the Natchez Parkway and situated on a three-acre lake. Be advised that there is no entry after 8 pm (CST). Online check-in is available.
Safe Harbor RV Resort
The idyllic Safe Harbor RV Resort sits on a peninsula with sweeping views of J. Percy Priest Lake and offers private swimming access, boat rentals and propane refilling. You'll never experience another view like this! Short- and long-term pricing is available based on site location and duration of stay. Online booking is now available.
Two Rivers Campground
A peaceful resort just two miles north of Opryland, Two Rivers Campground offers all the amenities you'd expect (free WiFi, full hookups), but ups its service with on-site concierge and a shuttle to downtown Nashville. If you have any doubts, just read the many glowing reviews on its website.
