Grand Ole RV Resort and Market

Grand Ole RV Resort and Market is an RV park located in Goodlettsville, Tennessee, a town found about 12 miles north of Nashville, Tennessee. The business has 130 RV spaces that are available throughout the year, all of which are equipped with full hookups. Visitors can choose to stay on a daily basis or weekly basis if they would like. The property also provides breakfast and dinner, served for an additional charge. "Come as guests, leave as family" is the RV park's motto and goal for their patrons. Grand Ole RV Resort and Market has live music playing every night of the year. The establishment is also pet-friendly, allowing guests to bring their animals along for the stay. According to the owner, the business has been around for many years, and there are pictures that date as far back as the 1960s.


Grand Ole RV Resort and Market has a total of 130 RV spaces. Each one comes equipped with full hookups, including water, sewage, and electricity of either 30 AMPs or 50 AMPs, depending on the site. Many have picnic tables provided on-site. The main office is where guests normally check in or out and also has a general store that sells souvenirs, camping supplies, snacks, soft drinks, and more. The establishment also fills guests' propane tanks if they need it, and visitors can find restrooms as well as laundry facilities. The business also offers an optional breakfast or dinner that patrons can purchase separately. The meal for dinner changes on a daily basis, but in the past, they have served dishes such as tacos, beef tips, spaghetti, barbecue sandwiches, country fried steak, and more.

Outside of the main office, several plots of flowers have been landscaped near the front, and several grassy areas and fields are found around the property. Live music is typically performed on a plot of grass with a few picnic tables and chairs near the office building. Trees are scattered throughout the land that can provide various shaded places for guests to avoid the sunlight during the day.

Beyond the borders of Grand Ole RV Resort and Market, one can find many different stores and restaurants. Sue, Tammy, and Tom, the owners of the RV park, enjoy recommending eateries to people who are looking for somewhere to get food. One restaurant Sue likes to tell people about resides in Nashville and is called Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint, which specializes in meats and other dishes grilled over a barbeque. Sue also mentions Long Hollow Pizza & Pub, which is closer to the property and has a bar, and right next to it is Chef's Market, which is a family-friendly restaurant that offers a more casual atmosphere. Located near the outskirts of Nashville, there is a venue called Grand Ole Opry. The Grand Ole Opry is known for being a long-running radio show company that provides tours on a daily basis and plays live radio shows, both old and new. Patrons can also visit several antique shops throughout a few of the cities, including Goodlettsville.

The cities near Nashville also have many parks, recreational locations, and outdoor areas that allow guests to spend time doing other activities like hiking and boating. The Cumberland River flows through Nashville and can provide visitors with entertainment like fishing, swimming, and kayaking. There are also several dog parks where guests can take their pets to give them a place to run without being leashed.


The Cunningham Family, the current owners of Grand Ole RV Resort and Market, would like their guests to "feel like they are family." To help them feel this way, they try to be accommodating to those who come to the RV park and are willing to answer questions that they may have. This goal is also in relation to the property's motto: "Come as guests, leave as family."
Grand Ole RV Resort and Market has several policies that they would like their guests to be aware of when they come to fulfill their reservations. The establishment is pet-friendly and takes no issue with people bringing their pets along, as long as the pet's owner cleans up after them and they keep their animals on a leash. Pets are also not allowed to be tied up and left alone outside without supervision. Quiet time starts at 10:00 PM and continues until 7:00 AM the following day. The store hours and laundry hours are from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM in the summer and 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM during the winter.

The business is open year-round, with the busiest season typically being the months of March through October, which the owner mentions is likely due to the warmer temperatures that occur during this time frame. She explains that there is not really a typical demographic of guests that come to the RV resort because they see a variety of occupants throughout the year that stay for different reasons.

Some things that guests tend to mention in reviews and notes include the live music, food provided for breakfast and dinner, and the cleanliness of the restrooms. One person left a review that reads, "Tommy, Sue, and Tammy took great care of us during our ten-week stay. They assisted us with our initial hookups when we arrived and continued to check on us throughout our stay. Breakfast and dinner are available daily, and live music every night of the week." One unique aspect of the property is that the establishment organizes live music to be played every night of the year.


Tommy Sr., the father of the Cunningham family, purchased Grand Ole RV Resort and Market in 2012. However, Sue, one of the current owners, explains that they have pictures of the building and grounds that date as far back as the 1960s. It has been a place for people to set up their RVs and trailers for many years, but there was a period of time right before the family acquired the land where it had been abandoned.

Tommy Sr. purchased the RV park in 2012 at an auction and eventually let it pass to his children. His reason for buying the property was "if the economy is bad, then people will need a place to live, and if it's good, then they are going to be traveling more."

Since the Grand Ole RV Resort and Market have been in the family, many changes have taken place to pull it out of its state of disrepair. The owners explain that they rewired many electrical interfaces before opening the RV park to the public. They also added a number of new sites, renovated the main office building, and had more work done on the grounds.
