Overview

Cages Bend Campground is located on the shores of Old Hickory Lake, offering campers and day-use picnickers the opportunity to enjoy activities with a beautiful scenic backdrop.

Water recreation is the major attraction for lake-goers, but with white-tailed deer, migratory song birds and waterfowl abundant in the area, Birding and wildlife photography is popular as well.

Natural Features:

Old Hickory Lake is a 22,500 acre reservoir just northeast of the Nashville metropolitan area.

Fed by the Cumberland River, it stretches for 97 miles, offering an ideal home for several birds and animals in its woodland habitat.

Recreation:

Swimming and sailing are popular ways to enjoy the lake, and anglers can find exceptional bank and boat fishing for catfish, crappie and bass.

Facilities:

The campground offers a playground for families, a boat ramp for easy lake access, showers for comfort and a group picnic shelter for convenient entertaining.

All sites have electric and water hookups and four sites meet accessibility standards. Laundry facilities are also onsite.

Nearby Attractions:

Downtown Nashville, known as "the music city," is just over a thirty minute drive from the campground.

Visitors looking for more pier fishing opportunities can explore nearby piers at Rockland, Sanders Ferry, Shutes Branch and Bledsoe Creek State Park.

History buffs will appreciate a day trip to the Hermitage, an impressive National Historic Landmark where the seventh U.S. President, Andrew Jackson lived.
