Harpeth River Bridge Campground is strategically located at the mouth of the Harpeth River where it flows into the now-dammed Cumberland River, known as Cheatham Lake at this juncture. This makes for watery recreation opportunities in both the flowing Harpeth, a state scenic river, and the narrow Cheatham Lake. A small johnboat is good for exploring these often-shallow waters where anglers fish for largemouth bass. Anglers on the shore or the campground’s bank can catch bream and crappie with worms and other bait. Other people use bait to catch catfish. You can make a trip of 12 miles by starting at the TN 250 bridge and floating down to the campground.
