My wife and I camped on site #6. We were met and led quickly to it and asked if we needed anything. John swing by and introduced himself...nice guy.

The spot was well mowed and right on the creek. Plenty of shade and area to setup multiple tents. Lots of wildlife...we saw lots of birds, an armadillo, frogs, a huge turtle, and one snake swim by.

The spot is secluded and you can’t see other spots or the lodge from it. We waded up and down the creek and even caught a few tiny bass. Good place to toss a lawn chair and a cooler for the afternoon. Note this is not a place with running water or electric.

Pros:
• Pretty 1.5 hour drive from Nashville on Natchez Trace Parkway
• Clean, private spot in nature
• Awesome views
• You can hear the creek... quite relaxing
Cons:
• Zero cell service if you have Verizon... when I mean zero, I mean you have to drive 20+ minutes to get a bar. If you are trying to coordinate with others or use gps to find spot, you need to make plans.
• A little on the pricey side at $40/night. Not too bad if you devide it out among the max 8 allowed, but for just 2 of us a little steep.
• As with most sites along creeks, it is in a flood-plain. You would just want to confirm the edge of field and spots are dry enough to camp on prior to booking. Also keep an eye on weather.

I recommend it and will be back with some friends.
