How many fun activities can you pack into a KOA resort? Exploring our grounds is sure to surprise and delight kids ages 1-111! Discover how to play Pickle ball, roll a Bocce Ball, chill in our hammocks, warm up by the community fire pit, catch some rays poolside, bounce on the Jumping Pillow, toss a round of Corn Hole, play a little Ping Pong, or discover a sensory stream water feature; the list just keeps going! During our summer season we'll have additional recreational activities scheduled on a weekly Activity Guide, including Barrel Train rides, ice cream socials, outdoor movies, and more. When you roll into Nashville KOA, Music City's premiere camping resort, make it a goal to experience as many of these recreation stations as possible! You may come to experience Nashville, and decide you just don't want to leave!
Things to Do Outside of Nashville
While there are endless ways to relax or stay active at the Nashville KOA Resort, you also won't want to miss out on all of the other recreational opportunities in Nashville, Tennessee, and the surrounding areas.
Nashville isn't called “Music City” for nothing. While visiting, be sure to check out all of the musical attractions, starting with the Grand Ole Opry. There's also the Country Music Hall of Fame and Ryman Auditorium nearby too.
Love learning about the local history? Be sure to visit some of the Civil War sites, Fort Negley and the Tennessee State Museum. To get up close and personal with all of the natural beauty this state offers, schedule a visit to the Cheekwood Estates and Garden or get your adrenaline pumping at Adventureworks.
Live Music Perfomances
It wouldn't be camping in the Music City without live performers! We have a long list of bands that perform at the campground regularly. For 2023, we've planned to have the local band Emberland perform every Tuesday & Thursday nights. Every Wednesday evening, local musician Ethan Anderson plays for our campers. We kick off each weekend with the Nashville KOA Road to Fame on Friday nights, which includes performances by some up-and-coming local bands. This series is planned in conjunction with a great local band, Velvet Rodeo, who perform on the campground many nights! And new for 2023 - we have a new Summer Concert Series with performances by the pool each Saturday from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend. (Live Music schedule is always subject to change and cancelations).
Create a special souvenir during your visit to the Nashville KOA Campground. On Tuesdays through Saturdays, campers can join our recreation staff for craft time! The specific projects vary from week to week, but include crafts like ceramic painting, sand art, popsicle stick photo frames, canvas paintings,and shirt decorating!
There's always something fun happening at the Nashville KOA Resort! Each Friday & Saturday, our campground recreation staff will welcome campers with special activities like tie-dye, train rides and hay wagon rides. We also have plan s'more roasting nights and drive-in movies on select Fridays. Inquire at the front desk for the specific events planned during your visit!
