“Great Discovery”

Reviewed Aug 25, 2018

Overall Rating

I had no idea there were so many Army Corps of Engineers (COE) campgrounds available to old geezers like me who get a half-price discount. Plus they are well laid out, clean, and working properly. The shower room was a bit outdated but clean and provided plenty of hot water. We had a lakeside view, level concrete pad, and complete pr... more

“Beautiful and peaceful”

Reviewed May 18, 2018

Overall Rating

Another great COE campground. Water & Electric hookups, level sites with picnic tables, fire rings and lantern poles. Our site was the only pull thru, the rest are back ins but easy access to all. Bathrooms/showers are older but clean. Only 1 washer and dryer outside the bathroom/shower building but both are clean, work well (did 4... more

“Terrific park in beautiful Nashville suburb”

Reviewed Apr 20, 2018

Overall Rating

All of the Army Corp of Engineers parks we've stayed at have been terrific and this one had the bonus of being close to Nashville (about 30 minute drive after rush hour) and being set in a beautiful suburban neighborhood. We highly recommend Cages Bend! Value: At just $25/night, the park is a tremendous value! All the sites are big... more

“Great last minute snag”

Reviewed Nov 17, 2017

Overall Rating

We camped here Labor Day weekend and booked while we were driving north on I-75. We snagged a last minute cancellation and got an awesome spot! Waterfront on the Cumberland River. Electric and water at the site and a dump station in the park. Host was friendly and helpful, easy angled back in site, and good proximity to grocery shoppin... more

“Absolutely beautiful! ”

Reviewed Jul 15, 2017

Overall Rating

This was our first Army Corps of Engineers park. And now I'm spoiled. Cages Bend is set in a spectacular area. The trees are beautiful and the lake is so peaceful. Our spot was very spacious. Plenty of room for the Airstream and the truck! I love how all the spots are staggered so you're not right on top of your neighbor. The waterfr... more

“Fantastic Waterfront Campsites”

Reviewed May 11, 2016

Overall Rating

We picked Cages Bend so we could camp close to family in Hendersonville. Our site was amazing. It had 180 degree views of the water and a very private picnic area. It's absolutely worth the $4 extra for a waterfront site. Be cautious if you're using the showers. One of the women's showers didn't have any heat regulation during our s... more
