I’ve been keeping a secret…
I’m selfish. I haven’t shared one of the best hidden gem outdoor getaways in Middle TN with y’all. It’s my escape place and it is fabulous –Rat’s Nest Campground http://ratsnestcampground.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ratsnestcampground/?fref=ts Instagram: RatsNestCampground
It’s close, just down the road in Chapel Hill. It’s quiet, on the week days. It’s fun, on the weekends. And you couldn’t find nicer people, too many to name!
Rat’s Nest has riverfront campsites as well as hike in more wooded sites.
It is a primitive camp. For those of you new to camping that means campsite and fire rings, no water, no electric. You can handle it for an overnight! They do have spring fed showers; they’ll wake you up for sure. The do have portalets too and they’re kept well :)
If you’re new to camping keep it simple. Tent sleeping, bags, flashlight, lighter (wood you can buy there), water and drinks, simple food like hotdogs you can cook over and open fire or that you don’t need to cook. Don’t forget your bathing suit because you can splash in the river or go for a river trip with Duck Canoes. Breeze In Deli just down the road has great pizza, BBQ, stuffed potatoes and breakfast sandwiches.
If you’ve been camping for a while it’s a great place to do your thing for a longer stay. Don’t forget your hammock there are many place to hang and rest from your daily routine. Also please share your favorite camping tip and camp food! It’s always great to have new ideas.
If you like live music they put on fantastic concerts on their stage on Howlin’ Hill. You can follow them for concert announcements at https://www.reverbnation.com/venue/howlinhill
