Three couples used this campground for our visit to Nashville. It is quiet, secluded and beautiful. We were all in RV sites overlooking the lake.

I stumbled on the visitor center and J. Percy Priest Dam on the greenway walk path. You'll see sightseeing onlookers, workers stopping off for a car lunch spot, some fisherman, joggers and of course a nice big dam. If it's daylight it will be open.

We stayed near the lake during our visit to Nashville. At this time of year it is not necessarily a tourist location but it does have nice parks and scenery.

There is really nothing to rent on the lake other than a house and I have never seen a house to rent on the lake you might try a marina that might have boats to rent
