Every weekend, Nashville is bursting with activity. The streets are filled with ‘wooing’ revelers celebrating some event or simply living it up. This sounds like harmless fun but there are only so many ‘woos’ one can hear before they need a break. We can think of no better way to refresh your mind and escape the rush of the city than spending some time in the great outdoors.

Let’s explore some of the best camping site options we have around here.
Montgomery Bell State Park
Montgomery Park is located roughly 34 miles from the city and has a history of almost 100 years. Apart from sleeping in a tent, other activities you can partake in are biking, hiking, golfing, and fishing. Or if you’re more of a sit back and relax kind of person you can simply open up a folding chair, crack open a beer, and enjoy all the nature around you.
Long Hunter State Park
Long Hunter Park is located close to Mt. Juliet and is only 24 miles away from the city. Long Hunter has two camping sites with exceptional views right along Percy Priest Lake. Getting to the camping sites takes a 6-mile hike, and there is no running water or restrooms. So choose Long Hunter Park only if you’re willing to go the whole 9 yards with your camping experience.
Henry Horton State Park
Only 51 miles from the city, the 50-year-old park gets its name from a former governor of Tennessee on whose estate the park was established. Camping options in Henry Horton range from inns, cabins, to tents. The park also has access to the Duck River where you can go fishing and finally ‘eat what you hunt’ in the most literal sense. There is also an 18-hole golf course if you want to work on your swing and a shooting range where you can practice your aim by shooting at clay pigeons.
Rock Island State Park
Rock Island is the furthest from the city, being 85 miles away. But she’s worth it if you’re willing to take the trip. Rock Island Park is almost 900 acres; that is 900 acres of scenic views. There are waterfalls with swimming holes, hiking trails, fishing spots, and whitewater kayaking facilities for those feeling a little more adventurous. The park has more than 60 campsites, and there’s even free Wi-Fi if you need to escape nature for a while.
