Water and restrooms are at the nearby outdoor center. Camping is open to groups and individuals. Bells Bend Park is a great location to experience nights of camping without the hassle of driving out of Nashville. For individuals or families wanting to camp, we offer most months of the year free, supervised camping nights and night hikes, fishing, and more with the park's outdoor specialist.
