TN - Cedars of Lebanon SP east of Nashville

We went to Lebanon, TN last weekend for the Mid TN Airshow (which was very nice. Got to go inside a B - 17 just like the one my grandfather was in in WWII)

Lebanon is just east of Nashville. We stayed at Cedars of Lebanon SP and had a very nice stay. The cg is quite large, with a large pool, too! Treated to a free concert on Saturday night. The Friends of COL is a great group of people who really care about the campers who stay with them. Our bathroom was not as nice and new as some other cgs, but it might be the "norm" for all I know.

They do not take reservations, which was a first for us, but we got very lucky and were able to find a great spot after "hours." We didn't even have to see a cg host, but checked in the following morning.

The park is also close to a super Walmart and lots of other stores and restaurants. Nice to get sunburn stuff so close. [;)]

The park is hopefully next in line for some updates. Bath houses are very dated, but clean. Campsites in old loops need some electrical help, but are shady and not cramped. The hiking trails are great. Plenty of caves and sinkholes to explore.
Overall, my kinda place. We had a good time and its only an hour away. We will definitely return.

Since when don't they take reservations ?? we were there last august and had the reservations ...

Great park, Kids loved the swimming pool, even tried our hand at disc golf ... When we were there we went on the bat hoot or what ever they call it..

Only down sides we saw to the park was one, the campground doesn't sell firewood.. no biggy for locals but an issue for out of State and out of Country people. Two)- the bath houses were very poorly kept up..

This is a particularly great park for pop-ups as one of the three loops there is a dedicated pop-up/tent loop. That area has sites that are large, spaced out, and woodsy. The loop is large and very nice for biking. There are walking trails that cross cross here and there. Now, this loop only has 20 amp electrical (as of summer 2014) and the bathhouses are not the nicest I've seen in state parks but this place rocks for pop-ups. The other two loops are more standard rv fair, which is ok if you like being right next to big rigs, but this pop-up area really feels like camping in the woods.

We did my kid's birthday party there March of 2013, did July 4th last year, and will be heading there next week for a four night Memorial Day run. The site we like to get is huge, has space for multiple large tents in addition to a large spot for the camper and multiple vehicles, and there is a walking path right to the bath house which is next door. Can't wait. Oh, and if you need firewood, as you exit out of the park entrance turn right and literally just a few yards down the highway on the right is a man that sells firewood for cheap. He usually has cedar which is smells amazing.

We just booked two nights during our kids' spring break coming up at the end of the month. Based on the description from Stovepipe, we booked site 94 in campground No. 3- I hope that was the one he was referring to in the post.

Highly recommend this park! Very nice new bathrooms and facilities. Very private sites in loop 2 & 3.
