Nashville KOA Resort Review| Enjoy RVing in Downtown Nashville

If you are looking to explore Nashville this campground is in the perfect location. The Nashville KOA Resort is a great place to setup up camp while you explore all the live music, great dining, and attractions the city has to offer. Its convenient location is just a couple miles from one of Nashville’s top attractions, the Grand Ole Opry, and just 20 minutes from the many sights downtown.

We first stopped here for a one-night stopover on the way to Big Bend National Park. However, we enjoyed it so much we knew we wanted to return and explore Nashville. Here we review the Nashville KOA resort and share our experience there.

Campground Amenities 

This KOA is one of the top-tier Resort Parks. To learn more about KOA campgrounds, and how they rate their parks be sure to read our KOA Campgrounds post. 

The most important amenity, in our opinion, is the tour shuttle to downtown Nashville. This shuttle costs $20 per person during our stay. It picks up right in front of the KOA store and drops off right in front of the Country Music Hall of Fame. It is a quick 20-minute ride to downtown Nashville. The drop-off location is a quick walk to Broadway where you can enjoy Nashville’s famed bars and live music. 

On-site is a large swimming pool and hot tub. In addition, you will find a fitness room and many outdoor activities. These activities include outdoor bowling, a large pickleball court, and of course the KOAs famed jumping pillow. 

The store is small but offers all that you will need during your stay. Inside the store, you will find a recreation room and the Notes Cafe where you will find breakfast every morning. 

In addition to the above amenities the park offers:

  • Live Poolside Music
  • Outdoor Movies Under The Stars
  • Full RV Hookups with 50 Max Amp
  • Sites with 102′ Max LengthLaundry Facility 
  • Clean Public Bathrooms with Shower Facilities

This KOA resort is unique in that it offers the normal KOA camping experience, yet it is set in the middle of a major U.S. city. If you are looking for relaxing views of nature, hiking, and seeing wildlife this is not the campground for that. However, if you are traveling in your RV, and looking to experience all that makes Nashville famous this is the perfect location. 

We have stayed here a number of times, and have never been disappointed. The staff is kind, and more than helpful. In addition to the shuttle to downtown, they offer guidance, and tickets, for guided tours of Nashville. 

One small thing that the kids really enjoyed was the fact that the pool is open late into the evening, and well lit. Our boys thought there was something special about swimming in the pool under the stars. 

The bathhouses were very clean and well maintained. Although we have a small shower in the RV we always appreciate being able to shower in a clean, full-size shower. This KOA resort did not disappoint. 

If you are looking to spend time in the campground relaxing they many activities to keep people of all ages entertained during the day. 

Our Experience

Our cross-country travels have brought us to the Nashville KOA Resort a number of times. We have had great experiences staying here. 

The first trip was a quick one-night stopover on the way south Texas. After the short time there we knew we needed to spend more than one day to enjoy all that the park had to offer. Therefore, we planned a trip to Nashville. This time we stayed a few days at the KOA and experienced what Nashville had to offer. 

We highly recommended setting up camp here and spending a few days enjoying the Music City. 

We love to hear from our followers. Be sure to leave a comment below.
