We just returned home from staying for a week at Grand Ole RV Resort and I feel that it is necessary to write a review on this park everywhere possible on the internet. I as well as most people, read many reviews online prior to choosing the call and make a reservation at this park. I believe many people that write these reviews expect too much out of public places. If you expect to be treated with excellent customer service you should highly consider choosing this park. We arrived late evening on Saturday and the campground facility was fairly full. I went to check in at the office and was warmly welcomed while walking up from my vehicle to the office porch. The lady working behind the counter was extremely pleasant and invited us to come back up the office and purchase our dinner for the evening as well as participate in the activity taking place that evening. After we finished paying and was ready to proceed to our site, I realized that the man and lady that welcomed us into the office area was also going to help me find my assigned site. I shared with him the map that the lady at the counter had given me and he looked at it and said, he didnt think that I would be happy with the assigned site due to the way the electrical and sewer/water connections were positioned on the site. He quickly without hesitation invited me to hop onto his golf cart and rode me to the assigned site for review. While in process of going to the originally assigned site he suggested that he take me by a pull thru site that would accommodate my travel trailer and he thought I would be happier with. I made the decision to take the pull thru site that he suggested. He then had me follow him on a golf cart with my truck and trailer and he helped me to get positioned into the site. After I got the trailer parked into the site, he then offered to help me to hook up my power, water and sewer connections. I was shocked...I have stayed in many campgrounds and I have never had a campground employee offer to help me to hook up my connections and get settled in. I quickly thanked the man, and talked with him a few minutes more, to realize he wasnt just an employee, he was part of the family that owns the campground. In talking with him, I found out he was Tommy Jr. and that his dad was Tommy Cunningham the owner. As I settled in and Tommy Jr. was beginning to leave, he realized that I needed a picnic table brought to the site. He promptly drove his golf cart and came back to deliver a really nice well made plastic picnic table to my site. The next day, I realized we did not have a fire pit and had planned that we would have a campfire at some point throughout the week. We purchased one out in town, and brought it back to the campground. Before I put it together I ask if it would be okay to have a fire because I didnt notice many fire pits on many sites..to be informed that there wasnt a need for me to have bought my own fire pit, that they have them available to use if I wished to have one. Within minutes, the staff delivered a fire pit to my site. Throughout the week, the campground staff, Tommy Cunningham and his son Tommy Jr. were very visible and available should we have needed them. We were always spoken to daily and ask if we needed anything during our stay. As I said before, many people are very critical of campground facilities in these posts, sure this campground is not the $100 per night resort campground with water parks, dog runs and concrete parking slabs, but if you want a nice place to stay that your business is appreciated and you feel welcomed then please do not hesitate to consider staying at this campground resort.
We chose this camp ground based on the website and the high level of reviews. Upon arriving, the first thing we noticed is how the campground is laid out. We are placed awning to awning with our neighbor and share picnic table spaces. It is always nice to have a level of socializing while camping but we didnt choose to camp with our neighbors, very strange layout and is scattered throughout. While I was outside this morning multiple people just walked right though my site. As I walked around, it became clear to me that this is about 80% full time seasonal renters that work in the Nashville area. It felt more like a trailer park than a campground. If a trailer park is your cup of tea, than this will work well for you. This is NOT A FAMILY CAMPGROUND. The neighbors that smoked the whole time from 7am to 10pm didnt make matters any better. The owners seem nice enough, but business is business, and this one needs to be fine tuned. The loose gravel makes it hard to level, the underground placement of the water post/outlet is strange and had garbage in it. Out of all the sites, we found 3 that had ample space and was a but more private. Areas of improvement needed: 1.) Kids "Park" is a small backyard wooden swing set, with overgrown lawn. 2.) Lawn / Mud / Gravel for sites is not tended to. 3.) Awning to Awning Lay Out, with an unconventional camper placement, almost seems scattered like a tornado whipped through the campground 4.) Train passing by every 15-30 minutes which take some getting used too. 5.) Smoking in public places, around the bathrooms shouldnt be allowed 6.) Price is affordable, but I would truly pay more money to ensure a better experience. I never post reviews, but this one I felt I needed to communicate.
My husband Woody and I visited this campground last of July and OH MY it was AWESOME, talk about southern hospitality. My husband has health issues and they chose this time to flare up, we were setting our camper up and Woody became very short of breath, as the owner and maintenance guy were riding their golf cart around the grounds, they notice he was in distress, came right over to check on him and then finish setting up the camper for us---there are still good people in this world! We also told them we were having a small family gathering on Sat. they made sure we had plenty of tables to accommodate everyone...little did they know they would be getting some good ole catfish later for their act of kindness. This was the first time to have our new camper on a trip, if we needed anything, which we did, they were right there helping us. We enjoyed walking up to the office and spending time with the staff, who were very kind, friendly and helpful also. My granddaughter loved the playground area and walking to the market for a snack, especially the pickles. When we arrived on that first day this was just a campground BUT by the time we left we felt like family.. they will definitely see us again. This is a family owned campground and they make you feel like family.
We stayed for a year. This is a family owned business that treats everyone like family. They go out of their way to make everyone feel at home. Even the visitors who arent campers feel at home. Its close to Nashville and the facility is well kept. Paw Paw will even check on you to see if there is anything you need during his security checks. Sue always has a smile and makes everyone who enters the store feel welcome. Tammy is always happy to help anyone when its needed and is a great cook too! Tommy Jr. was our best music supporter he made us feel special and always brought family and friends out to enjoy our music and all of special guests. We are headed to Florida and wish we could stay and play some music there longer but we are headed for the Sunshine State for the winter then off to California. We would definitely recommend this campground and hope to swing by on our next tour through Tennessee. It was a pleasure to sing our music here and we made a lot of great friends!!! Thanks everyone we Love ya!! Sunshine and Moon (Brenda and Cliff Garrow)
