Overview

Overview

Anderson Road Campground is a lakeside oasis in the green hills of Tennessee, providing campers with countless recreational activities on the lake and in the surrounding woods and grasslands.

Natural Features:

J. Percy Priest Dam and Lake was one of the first Corps of Engineers lakes to have recreation as part of its mission. The dam, completed in 1968, impounds 42 miles, with 14,200 surface acres of water.

In soothing contrast to the sparkling waters of the lake are the adjacent 19,087 acres of grasslands and woodlands.

A highlight of the region, the Cedar Glades Natural Area, is home to countless wildlife and plant species, including the Tennessee coneflower.

Recreation:

The lake provides a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities for millions of visitors each year. Because of the temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, visitors have numerous activities to choose from, including fishing, hunting, picnicking, boating, canoeing, hiking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing.

Fishing opportunities abound at J. Percy Priest Lake, with a wide variety of species available, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappie and Cherokee bass. Other species such as catfish, bluegill, bream and trout provide excellent opportunities for younger anglers.

Anderson Road Fitness Trail is a paved trail winding a little over a mile through the cedar glade area beside the lake.

Facilities:

Anderson Road Campground offers 37 shady and spacious campsites, along with one large day-use picnic shelter. The campground features drinking water, a dump station and flush toilets. A boat ramp and swimming beach are provided, allowing guests to take advantage of the vast, sparkling lake.

Nearby Attractions:

J. Percy Priest Lake is conveniently located about ten miles east of downtown Nashville, offering visitors plenty of cultural activities in addition to the conveniences of a metro area.
