According to a recent reviewer,

“Brand new, and super nice! In the country, but the Antioch area of Nashville. The campground is secure, so if you hear crime reports for the area, we had no concerns. We’re local to Middle TN. We have stayed at other RV resorts on Percy Priest Lake, and all have been beautiful, but we think Four Corners is our new favorite. Such lovely views, so clean, and very well thought out. Each site is level and concrete, and the driveways are concrete. Nice picnic table and fire ring, and everyone we met was so friendly.

It was the beginning of fall and the park was full, but lots of fellow campers were out and about like us enjoying the new fall weather. Our space was Lakeside East, which is more expensive than the West sites, but the views are totally worth it. When we camp, it’s all about the view you’ll have at sunset with a cocktail and breakfast with coffee. Both were stellar. During our visit the restaurant at the marina was closed for the winter already. We have friends who live on a house boat there and love it. We camped at Four Corners RV Resort in a Motorhome.” – Sarah and Gary via RV LIFE Campgrounds
