Experience the best of Music City from one of Nashville KOA RV sites or Deluxe Cabins. Enjoy amenities such as private dog pens and concierge services while staying at these campgrounds near the Grand Ole Opry.
Campground Review: Nashville KOA, Nashville, TN
We chose Nashville KOA campground because it's just a stone's throw away from famous Music City attractions and bustling downtown, you'll find yourself soaking in the best of Nashville culture.
But the main reason is because some of the sites have it's own private dog pen.
We stayed at several KOA's that had sites with a dog pen, but they were always booked.
So when I checked our dates, and saw they had one available, I snagged it.
Let's find out more!
Why Stay at Nashville KOA
Like many of the KOA's we have stayed at, Nashville KOA has many of the same amenities as the rest.
- Spacious RV sites with patios, tables, chairs and a glider.
- Book a site with a private dog pen.
- Heated pool, giant chess and checkers, and jumping pad on the grounds.
- Friendly staff offering music, hot tub and shuttle service to downtown.
- Shuttle available for $10 per person round trip to downtown until 12:30 PM.
- KOA's neighboring campgrounds less impressive than this one.
- Close to the Grand Ole Opry, Gaylord Opryland, General Jackson, and Opry Mills.
Nashville KOA, where every site has a comfortable area to relax, featuring a table, chairs, and a fire pit for those cozy evenings under the stars.
At this park, you'll find premium paved sites that not only boast level, gravel-free grounds but also offer exclusive pet areas for your furry friends to enjoy.
We were in a pull through site I6 and had plenty of room for our motorhome and vehicle.
While you can't go off and leave your
husband pet in the dog pen, your pet will enjoy being off leash and close by.
The pen comes complete with dog poop bags and garbage can. (dog not included!)
There is also a dog park available for those that do not have their own fenced in dog pen. Harley is crazy and doesn't play well with others.
Whether you're driving a luxurious RV or prefer a more rustic camping experience, Nashville KOA campground accommodates all preferences, including deluxe and rustic cabins as well as spacious tent sites.
Catch a Ride
Heading to downtown Nashville? Leave your car parked at your RV site and jump on the shuttle for only $10 per person round trip.
It picks you up and drops you off right in front of the main building.
The shuttle runs hourly up until 12:30 am Monday - Thursday, till 1:30 am Friday and Saturday and 9:30 pm on Sunday.
YOU MUST CALL FOR A PICKUP!
It conveniently drops you off downtown right near all the famous bars.
Whether you are heading downtown for dinner, drinks, music, or all three, save yourself the aggravation (and money) of trying to find a parking spot.
It will drive through the other local Nashville RV Parks to pick up others and you can compare them to Nashville KOA.
There are countless activities to partake in both within the park and in the vibrant city of Nashville.
Inside the park at the main building, you will find countless games, pool tables, a juke box and more.
Outside, you will find the chess game, pickle ball, giant checkers and even outdoor bowling.
You can even rent bikes for a small fee, or lounge in a hammock under the trees near the pool.
Showers, Pools, and More
Start the day off at the gym where you will find many different machines to choose from.
I'm all about the swimming pools. Even if we are just stopping for one night, I will go in the pool even if just for a half hour.
We visited in October for my birthday (of course) so we weren't sure if the pool was open, as many of our other stops, the swimming pools were closed on Labor Day.
I was happy to learn that the pool was heated and was in fact open. UPDATE: Upon checking the website, it states that the pool is unheated. I'm not sure if it was heated for a little while or what the situation is.
However, the hot tub is definitely heated (or else it wouldn't be called a hot tub!)
There is also live music right by the pool. Pull up a chair and relax under the stars. (there are lights too, lol)
Watch a movie in the pool. We missed this as it only runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
After a day of excitement, rejuvenate yourself in the park's well-maintained showers and restrooms, where plenty of hot water and cleanliness await.
Check the Nashville KOA website for all the activities available.
Campground Store and Laundry
The laundry room is located off the general store. Washer and dryers are both $2.00 which I think is not a bad price.
Forget something from home? Need some firewood for the evening?
The general store has common items that people forget.
Plus, snacks and ice are available too.
They will even deliver wood right to your campsite! How's that for service?
The park staff's warm and friendly nature will ensure your stay at Nashville KOA is nothing short of exceptional, going above-and-beyond to cater to your every need.
Enhance your getaway with the help of a friendly concierge, who'll guide you to the best site-seeing tours and secure tickets to the hottest local events.
Internet and Cell Service
I have an AT&T jetpack, and a Verizon Jetpack, in addition to the internet on my phone. I also have a T-Mobile home internet now that I did not have back then.
In case I need to write something at the spur of the moment, I have to be prepared.
There has only been occasion where I did not have any internet. Rare but happens!
Below you can see my internet speeds.
The first one is the park wifi, then AT&T wifi, and finally Verizon jetpack.
Here you can see my Verizon phone internet and I have two bars for cell service.
Where to Eat
There are many places to eat in addition to downtown Nashville.
Grab a bite at the clubhouse. There you will find breakfast and more that you can grab n' go.
A short walk out the gate is Cock of The Walk. I've heard many good things about this restaurant.
Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to eat there in our short 3 day Nashville trip.
We did eat at Sante Fe Steakhouse for my birthday. We used to have one in Florida and I just love that place.
The food is always delicious.
So Happy Birthday to me!
Saunter on down to Hattie B's for some Nashville hot chicken if you'd like.
You can find it at many different places.
Or enjoy a delicious meal on the General Jackson dinner showboat or at one of the many restaurants located inside Gaylord Opryland.
Beware of Falling Acorns
The only bad part about the whole Nashville experience was being under an acorn tree and having them fall on the roof of the camper while we were sleeping.
I know nothing about acorn trees, but we were in Nashville the second week of October so not sure if that is the only time they fall.
So, just be aware of that. And if you do have the same experience, be sure to check the top of your awning before putting it in.
It wasn't until we arrived at Margaritaville, that we realized we had a few stuck up there and that was the reason the awning would not close all the way.
Who Stays at Nashville KOA
I'm not sure exactly who stays at Nashville KOA, but I would bet that a few country singers do.
I have never seen so many Prevost's in one place at the same time. Just sayin'!
The Perfect Way to End The Day for My Birthday
After dinner, we headed back to the campsite and finished off with a fire and a few drinks.
The site has a nice built in stone fire pit and we had our wood delivered earlier in the day.
With a variety of accommodations to suit your needs, it's your ideal base to explore the lively city of Nashville and experience the rich culture that has made it famous worldwide.
Discover the iconic Grand Ole Opry less than 3 miles away or delve into the diverse culinary scene that the city has to offer.
