Well once again we are tapping the group for information. We are planning a trip to Tennessee and need to know of your favorite state park, rv park or national park. Also is the best time to go in October, November or wait until the spring? Nashville area will be the general area. Thanks in advance. Good Luck & Be Safe ! ! !

Montgomery Bell State Park is the only place near Nashville we've been. It's a real nice park and has some sites with sewer. October is leaf season and sites are likely already booked up. Early November isn't bad camping weather, but you may see lows near freezing.

Peak leaf color is the 3rd-4th week in October. Even if you can't get a site at Montgomery Bell State Park, spend some time there. There are lots of trails for hiking, historical interest, and beautiful scenery. (I live close by.) Cedars of Lebanon State Park is east of Nashville, and very nice.

Also go on ReserveAmerica or RVparkReviews and look for the COE campgrounds in the area. They are very nice.

You will NOT go wrong spending time in Tennessee's great state parks.

Take a day and head west up I-24 to Land Between the Lakes. It's a Forest Service facility (formerly TVA) and has a ton of cool stuff, including the elk and bison prairie, a restoration of a 1850's farm, and much beautiful scenery.

If you like history, the area around Nashville and Franklin is rich. President Andrew Jackson's home, The Hermitage, is in Nashville. There are several well-preserved ante-bellum homes in Franklin, TN and an entire battlefields (Stones River) in Murfreesboro.

The Natchez Trace Parkway begins just west of Nashville. Take it down through Tennessee for beautiful drive with waterfalls.

Check out Fall Creek State Park about 100 east of Nashville Also the COE parks east of Nashville.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

We always stay at the Holiday Travel Park in Chattanooga on our way to Florida from the Midwest. We like our full hookups, cable TV, etc. being city-folk.

Cedars of Lebanon is a nice state park, they just got through renovating Camp Ground 3, they also have #2 and #1. I don't know their schedule on redoing #1. Henry Horton to the south of Nashville is a nice one. Most of the Army Corps Campgrounds open late and close early. One that many forget about is Poole Knobs near Lavergne, TN.

Check out Seven Points Core Of Engineer Campground. Beautiful sites on a lake about 20 minutes east of downtown. Reservations are usually necessary.
