Campground website: Seven Points Campground
Our Site #: 1
Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):
5/5: Our site (#1) was incredibly private. In fact, it was the best we've ever had. Other sites vary, but because you can look at the available sites on Reserve America, you can get a pretty good idea of how much space you will have in any given site. There are tons of trees so there are no open sites. Really, there are no bad sites. It is a gorgeous campground where you can really relax.
Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):
5/5: Located just 12 miles from Nashville, it's a snap to get into the city, but at the same time, if you want to just relax, you can enjoy the quiet surroundings. We did take an Uber one day to get in and out of the city and that cost us about $25 each way. We thought it was a pretty reasonable price to not have to worry about driving.
Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):
4/5: Site quality was awesome. Our space was extremely long, level, and the electric and water hook-ups were easily accessible. I have to knock a point off because they only have water and electric, but the dump was accessible at the entrance to the campground. We actually bought a portable tank for carrying gray water and wheeled it up to the dump station a couple times so we wouldn't have to worry about gray water. A lot of our fellow campers did the same, and we highly recommend it for places like this. As for big rig accessibility, we had no issues. The roads are reasonably wide and the trees are trimmed back, so we had no difficulties.
Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, and staff):
5/5: The campground uses Reserve America which always makes us very happy since we can see all of the available sites and then book our own. The customer service was perfect, from a quick and friendly check-in to staff who always smiled and waved when they saw us in the campground.
Internet Availability Rating (Verizon coverage or campground wifi):
4/5: We used our AT&T hotspot here and had no problems. We have heard that Verizon coverage is spotty, so beware of that. There was no wifi, but that is to be expected at a government park.
We absolutely loved our stay at this campground. Our particular campsite (#1) was enormous, heavily treed, and entirely private, but all of them are spacious with dense foliage giving guests a sense of privacy. There are also a number of campsites that back up right to the water, though there was wide variation between these sites - some offering more space than others. It is worth it to study the available sites on the Reserve America map and choose one that truly suits your needs. The campground is ideally located just outside Nashville and offers a perfect place to relax after a day of exploring that wonderful city. All in all, we adored this campground and will absolutely stay there again.
