Tennessee campgrounds affected by floods
Camping at several parks and campgrounds in Tennessee has been affected by the devastating floods that have hit the region.
The Nashville Camping Examiner reports that the Nashville KOA is temporarily closed due to the flooding. Campers are urged to check back at their website for information about when they will reopen.
About 30 campsites at Nashville's Jellystone Park are flooded although the majority of sites there remain undamaged and open for visitors.
Writer Kevin Holder reports that Bledsoe Creek state park and Mousetail Landing state park are both closed because of flooding.
Montgomery Bell state park did sustain some damage but is open and has campsites that are open as well.
No flood damage at all was reported at the following middle-Tennessee state parks: Cedars of Lebanon, Henry Horton, and Old Stone Fort. Camping facilities at these three state parks are open and ready for campers.
Individuals planning on travelling to the Nashville and middle-Tennessee areas are encouraged to call to confirm their reservations and ensure their campground is opened and unaffected by the water damage prior to their trip.
