Pitch your tent, or camp in your vehicle and listen to the the year round spring fed stream. Feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but know that you are an Uber/Lyft ($25) ride away from downtown Nashville. You are also close to everything in Hendersonville and Old Hickory Lake.

1.5 miles from one of my favorite coffee shops, Authentic Coffee Co. and a handful of local restaurants. This campsite is on a 37 acre tract in the Timber Forestry program so it is all mature trees, hills and creeks. 

More info on property:

There are nice year round creeks so you'll always have water. Plenty of firewood laying around from fallen branches and limbs. Please don't cut into any live trees though. I've had campers kill nice trees before because they wanted to axe throw.  The campsites are in the thick woods in the country. Don't be surprised to see bugs, snakes, critters, animals, beautiful birds and all kinds of wildlife. You'll also hear the woods come alive at night, especially the frogs during the spring and summer. 

Details on the sites:

There are 2 campsites close enough should you want to book multiple sites with a group, but far enough away where you will not be disturbed. Campsite #1 is the first campsite which is tucked in between 2 large hills right alongside a creek. Campsite #2 is a little further back in the property alongside the creek. This is slightly more open and right on the creek as well. Both sites have plenty of good spots for a tent or hammock. You can drive and park at both sites as long as you have decent ground clearance (Example of vehicles that have stayed: Toyota Highlander, Honda CRV, Subaru Outback, Jeeps). If you are in car I would recommend parking towards the entrance of the property or pulling off in a dedicated flat sport before you go down towards the creek (see the picture with the white Volvo sedan). I am constantly improving these camp sites so expect tables, shovels and all kinds of things to make your camping more enjoyable. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Thanks,

Matthew

We many have gotten rained out beyond our own comfort but we LOVED this location. The location is so peaceful. We had no trouble getting down into the spot with our Tundra and no trouble getting out even with the rain. We can’t wait to come back.

We had an awesome experience camping out for 3 days at Fern Brook! Our kids and our dog loved getting to explore the creek and the woods with lots of space to venture out. We felt like we were out in the wilderness, yet only a short drive from Nashville. Matthew was a fantastic host, and the campsite was a much needed escape to unplug. We will definitely be going back in the future!

We loved sleeping next to the creek! We have a Honda CRV which made the drive down the hill, and through the creek, very easy. The toilet wasn’t working at the time of our stay, host said they were working to fix the toilet soon.

Matt and his properry once again outdid themselves. This is my favorite place to camp outside of Nashville. Its the perfect get away for any Nashville residents just looking for a close escape, and ideal for anyone traveling through. Matt has kept the property well suited, even during the wild summer months of growth. Easy entry and exit. 100% reccomend.

We took our boys camping for the first time. This was the perfect location. They had a blast exploring the stream, collecting wood for the fire, getting dirty and relaxing. We were the only ones there and it was so quiet and felt like we were in the middle of nowhere! We would love to come back!!

Matthew is an amazing host. I'm sure he isn't available to do this for every visitor, but he met us out on the property, showed us around, and even had a fire going for us at our site. It was the perfect getaway, with just a short drive from Nashville proper. The site was furnished with benches, a massive fire-pit, and solid flat areas for pitching tents. The site was very private, however we heard an array of wildlife like owls and turkeys. I would recommend this site to anyone! Thanks Matthew!

Loved this place super tucked away but still close to Nashville.

I just wanted to get out of town with my dog for the weekend and it was a great spot. He even had some dry firewood under a tarp there.

Thanks again. Will defiantly be back.
