“One of our favorite places”

Reviewed May 21, 2017

Overall Rating

It's hard to beat America's Corp Of Engineer parks. So far Defeated Creek is one of our top five. Over half of the sites are water front with a shore line that is very welcoming. Many come with their boats and tie up right in front of their site. This park is very popular so if you want to get one of the water front spots with full hook up, you'll need to do a little planning and reserve early.

We also enjoy the mountain bike trails and the Bear Waller Gap hiking trail that connect to the park. There is a marina next door where you can rent boats and the parks day use area has a great tennis court. You'll love the deer at night too!

The sites are all well laid out and even the sites without a lake view are tucked away and offer something special.

“Picturesque river + hiking, although pretty far from downtown Nashville”

Reviewed Apr 21, 2016

Overall Rating

Defeated Creek Campground is our favorite place to stay in Nashville, although it's a bit of a drive to get downtown (1 hour+). You're set on a lake (technically a river), have water and electricity and sometimes full hookups. The price is right. We ended up spending about $25 per night here, some inland sites and some lakefront sites.

This was our second time here and we loved it even more than the first. My advice would be to try to get sites 71, 73, 74, 75, or 77. These are the most private and have the largest "yards" for the dogs to run.

This place books quickly, especially for the weekends. If you're thinking about staying here for a longer amount of time like we did (two weeks), book it in advance.

Honestly, the only thing that's lacking at this campsite is the cellular signal. We get two bars of Verizon 3G on a good day, and the internet is unusable on the weekends when the campground is full, and everyone is watching Netflix :-)

If you're interested in a day hike, check out the Bearwaller Gap Hiking Trail. The trailhead is walkable from your campsite and the trail is 12 miles out-and-back (6 miles out, 6 miles back). There's even a nice picnic/backcountry camp area for a break.

All of the sites have water hookups and electricity, at least 30 amps. Some sites have 50 amp. A dump station is inside the campground and some sites have full hookups.
