About the Park
Located only 40 minutes from downtown Nashville, TN in Dickson, Montgomery Bell State Park serves as a natural oasis for local city dwellers and a peaceful vacation destination for travelers. Three lakes are nestled into the 3,850-acre park and provide visitors the opportunity to soak up the sun on their swim beach shores and paddle the calm waters.
The park was once the center of the iron industry in Middle Tennessee. The park's namesake, Montgomery Bell, formed one of the largest iron industries in Tennessee. Iron was once thought to be more valuable than gold and was a very lucrative industry at the time.
Visitors can experience a natural retreat at the newly renovated Lodge inside Montgomery Bell. The fully remodeled 117-room Lodge sits on the banks of Lake Acorn and provides guests with the opportunity to escape to peace and quiet while being just minutes away from the interstate. The renovated Lodge features modern rooms, a new full-service restaurant and bar open to park visitors daily, and 6,000 square feet of flexible event space. The Lodge is the perfect place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city—enjoy lounging by the outdoor pool or kick back with a craft beer in the lounge.
The park also has eight environmentally-friendly modern cabins available for rent near lake Acorn. The park’s campground can accommodate campers up to 60 feet on most electrical sites. The campground has on-site sewer at 40 sites and can accommodate small pop-up campers and large RVs. There are 94 campsites available at the park.
