Nashville East / Lebanon KOA Journey Review

Our time at the Nashville East / Lebanon KOA Journey was short. This was a quick one-night stopover for us. We camped here on our way to the Grand Canyon National Park. Allthough we only stayed for one night we had a pleasant time and would recommend this park to others.

Campground Review

The park is a short drive from downtown Nashville. The hilltop views and shaded canopy of trees create a beautiful atmosphere. This location is excellent for those who want to be close to the city but still able to enjoy the peacefulness of the country.

Our site was clean and level. In addition, we had a small picnic table, and a fire ring as well. The staff on-site was extremely helpful and kind. Of course, the pool was a big hit after a long day of driving. 

There was no cable T.V. available. However, we were able to pick up a number of local channels over the air. 

The store was small. However, it offered everything we needed for our stay. In addition to camping supplies, you can grab some Tennessee or Nashville souvenirs inside.

We arrived in the early afternoon after driving from Fort Chiswell, Virginia. The check-in was simple, and the staff was more than helpful. Our site was easily accessible. In addition, it was a pull-through site. It’s always a little easier when you don’t have to back in! 

There was one unique thing that happened to us. As we were sitting down for dinner we were visited by a number of free-range chickens. Fortunately, they didn’t bother us. However, we were having chicken for dinner ourselves that night. So of course the kids got a kick out of this!

In conclusion, we would recommend the Nashville East Lebanon KOA if traveling along I-40 and looking for a place to set up for the night.
