Seven Points Campground – Hermitage, TN

by | Oct 24, 2015

Over the last year, Joan and I have heard many campers talk about Corps of Engineer campgrounds. The constant theme was well maintained, attractive locations around waterways and a great value. We recently planned a trip to the Nashville, TN area for a little R&R and a dose of country music, considering a number of the RV parks in the area. On a whim, we decided to try Seven Points Campground located on the shoreline of J. Percy Priest Lake in Hermitage, TN. What we discovered held true to all we’ve heard from fellow RV’ers about COE campgrounds.

Seven Points is located less the 15 minutes from downtown Nashville. I expect that when the lake was developed and this campground was established, this was a rural part of the growing metro area. Well that has changed. Turning off I-40 at exit 221B onto Old Hickory Blvd, we were puzzled to see a very upscale area. Continuing toward the lake we passed expensive neighborhoods and signs pointing to Nashville Shores, a family waterpark, marina and RV destination unto itself. A few more miles from the interstate, the area becomes more rural as we approached the gate. Note to self: Watch for deer. They are everywhere!

Joan and I maybe are on streak of landing in nice campgrounds and this is another one we can add to our “we’ll return too” list. Paved roads, level spots and mostly back-ins, this campground located on the edge of this beautiful lake was very nice. Sites are electric and water with ours containing both 30 and 50 amp connections. All sites are wooded and an abundance of space between you and your neighbor. Where wooded sites may be good for aesthetics, they are lousy for satellite reception. My guess is less than 30% of 58 sites have a western view without trees in the way. We managed with great TV reception with off-airs out of Nashville.

There are a number of other COE campgrounds around the lake, but discovered Seven Points was considered the jewel of the area. We saw tents to the largest of rigs. We had a great spot with a side view of the lake, but those who were able to camp in spaces 16 through 36 had a great view of the lake with half of these located on the shore line. If you can get a shoreline space, you have won the lottery. These spots are amazing. All face the west and the sunsets were breath taking. Envy, envy! But I’ll admit; there really wasn’t a bad space in the campground.

We didn’t use the bathhouse, but did use the coin laundry machines located in back. We found the bathhouse to be spotless and up-to-date with ample stalls and showers.

Seven Points Campground has much to offer – space, beauty, close access to all the fun in Nashville along with shopping at all the major chains. Oh, and most important, the price. Rates range from $21 to $24 depending on the site location. America the Beautiful Interagency Senior and Access Passes are accepted for 1/2 price discounts. What a value for this crown jewel of a COE campground.
