This 37-acre timber farm was once part of a huge plantation owned by one of the first settlers in Tennessee. It is now registered and part of a Timber Forestry program with many old-growth trees (Tulip Poplars are Tennessee's state tree and there are some big ones here). There are steep hills and creeks weaving throughout this property. I love coming out here and escaping the city as you feel like you are deep in the woods yet still close to Nashville, Hendersonville, Old Hickory Lake and I-65. This property is surrounded by hundreds of acres of timberland which accounts for all the wildlife in the area. Learn more about this land: Pitch your tent, hang your hammock, or camp in your vehicle and listen to the year-round spring-fed streams. Feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but know that you are still an Uber/Lyft ride away from downtown Nashville. You are also close to everything in Hendersonville, White House, Goodlettsville, and Old Hickory Lake. 1.5 miles from one of my favorite coffee shops, Authentic Coffee Co., and a handful of local restaurants (White House Pizza is a great one too and not far away). 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 the 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. Each site is clearly marked and has a designated area. Please try to stay around your campsite out of respect for other campers. Each site has plenty of space. Don't be surprised to see 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. The Owls are my favorite though. 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 two 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 (Examples of vehicles that have stayed: Toyota Highlander, Honda CRV, Subaru Outback, Jeeps). Many cars including a Toyota Prius have also made it back though. I am constantly improving these campsites so expect tables, shovels, and all kinds of things to make your camping more enjoyable. There will also be new campsites coming soon, including an off-grid tiny cabin, and primitive sites that would require a hike to access. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions. Thanks, Matthew

Site 3
My family really enjoyed Matthew’s land. There was plenty of room to spread out and explore. I really like that once you’re off the road, it feels very remote. Will return.

Clean, peaceful, off grid
Great spot that feels off the grid even though it’s only 30 minutes from the city. The spot I stayed at (site 2) was well maintained and clean. It had a nice little babbling brook. Unfortunately, I had to leave early unexpectedly due to a family issue. But, I’ll definitely be returning when the trees fill out this spring. I will mention that cell service isn’t great. Not a big deal if you’re trying to disconnect.

Beautiful and Peaceful Location
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!
