Two Rivers Campground is located on Music Valley Drive in Nashville, short distance from I-24. Opryland Hotel and the Grand Ole Opry are less than three miles away.
1. Facility: 3.5/5
This is an older campground with 104 sites. There are only two pull-thru sites in the entire park, and not all sites offer 50-amp service. The roads are paved, but worn in places. All of the sites are gravel. However, as far as we could tell, they all appeared to be level. As is the case with many older campgrounds, they are not equipped to handle big rigs, so we had to park our toad perpendicular to our motorhome. Each site has a concrete pad and a picnic table. The sites are fairly close together, but the roads are nice and wide. There is no designated area for unhooking a toad, but we had no trouble unhooking on the road in front of our site.
2. Restrooms: 3/5
Even though this is an older campground, the restrooms were very clean, but nothing fancy. There is one large bathhouse in the campground, as well as a smaller way attached to the store. In the large bathhouse, there is only one large shower; the others were all very small, with a bench/dressing area outside each shower.
3. Amenities: 3.5/5
A pool and a laundry room were the only amenities in the campground. The pool was still closed for the season. The laundry room was your typical campground laundry room, clean but nothing special. Two independent shuttle services pick up campers and shuttle them to downtown Nashville.
4. Location: 5/5
Two Rivers was conveniently located close to Opryland Hotel, numerous restaurants, and several bars that feature live music by local artists. There is a Camping World located nearby. Music Valley Drive is an access road that parallels TN-155. Despite being so close to the highway, the campground was surprisingly quiet.
5. Pet Friendly: 5/5
The park offered a nice fenced in area called Nappy Hour.
Overall Rating: 4
Summary: Overall, Two Rivers is far from being the nicest campground we’ve ever stayed in. It was sandwiched between two other campgrounds, a Jellystone Park and a KOA. There were ruts in some places in the roads. Nashville had heavy rain all day Sunday and into Monday morning, resulting in poor drainage in some areas of the campground. On the plus side, this is not one of those campgrounds that has full-time residents living there, so there was none of the unsightliness associated with those type parks. For you urbanites, the campground is located near downtown Nashville. Because of its location, there is no greenspace in this campground, so exercise is limited to walking/biking on the roads within the park. There are numerous eateries and several bars located on Music Valley Road, but there are no sidewalks. Music Valley Road is quite busy at times, so I would not recommend walking on the roadway. The summer rates (April 1st – Oct. 31st, 2018) for Two Rivers are: $53.53 per night for 30 Amp service without sewer; $59.00 per night for 30 Amp service with full hook-ups; $64.46 per night for 50 Amp service with full-hooks. Personally, I thought they were overpriced, but as they say, it’s all about location, location, location. Two Rivers offers a 10% Good Sam discount. The park has free cable and WIFI, but the WIFI was slow at times. They also offer seasonal entertainment, but we arrived too early in the month to enjoy the added bonus.
Cell Phone Signal: We were only able to get two bars with Verizon, but four bars with AT&T.
Conclusion: Would we stay at Two Rivers again? Yes, because of the location. In fact, we plan to stay there a few days on our way home from Montana, so we can do a little sightseeing and hook up with our nephew again. Hopefully it won’t rain next time.
Note: Because of the rain, we were unable to take pictures of the campground. We will add pictures to this post on our return visit.
Update: We did not return to Two Rivers as planned, as they had no sites available on our return trip through Nashville.
