Welcome to Bells Bend, Nashville’s green lung. Your campsite is situated on the Cumberland river on 115 acres of river bottomland that has been in my family for nearly a century. There are three ponds on the property as a result of clay mining in the 1970’s. The ponds are home to many species of herons, ducks, owls, hawks, songbirds and the brilliant belted kingfisher. Direct your gaze upward and you might see the American Bald eagle soaring overhead in search of prey. Migrating Whooping cranes have been spotted on the ponds during several winters. The ponds are within walking distance from the campsite. Kayaks and a dock are available to you for $10 each per day. There is a grass fed cattle operation on the land. The cattle are fenced in and have watering troughs dotted along the fence rows. We ask that all gates remain closed and their water source undisturbed. You may reach the ponds without going through the cattle pastures. River traffic usually consists of pleasure boats on the weekends and the occasional barge with its search lights bathing the river and its banks. There are a few homes across the river at varying elevations. Aside from these homes, you will have a nice dark sky to enjoy.
