RV Parks 100 mile Radius of Nashville

The DW and I will take our daughter to Nashville the first week in June where she will connect with friends to attend the CMA Music Fest.
While she is there we want to stay in a nice park that could be local but we also don't mind traveling to a nice park say no more than 100 miles away. As you might expect this is a big event for Nashville and many of the local RV parks are already sold out for the week. Would prefer a location on a lake or by a stream yet where we can take toad and see the sites.
Recommendations would be appreciated.

I highly recommend Montgomery Bell State Park in Dickson. It's about 20 - 30 minutes outside of Nashville to the West.

Cedars of Lebanon may be closer to downtown Nashville and it is a nice state park, too.

The Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) has many campgrounds and one that I stayed at close to Nashville was ACOE Percy Lake.Corps Lakes Gateway: Tennessee - J Percy Priest Lake My National Parks Pass gave me discount. The camp sights are big and beautiful. Reservations are strongly recommended. I have stayed in spaces 40 and 29 which have a view of the lake, close to the swimming area and boat launch.

Have stayed at Nashville KOA several times and have booked for Jimmy Buffett concert in April. The KOA, Jellystone, and another park are all side by side with a Campers World in the middle. It is located near the Gaylord opryland hotel and the Opry Mills mall. It's just a short cab ride downtown. We have been during bowl games and the SEC basketball tournament and they have had a pay shuttle going downtown, not sure if they do that regularly, probably just special events. We always try and plan to be near Leipers Fork just south of Nashville along the Natchez Trace about lunch time one day for lunch at Pucketts Grocery. Nice little town to visit. There is also a new brewery in Franklin that we have been wanting to check out.

Thanks Everyone for the comments and suggestions. They were all very helpful.

I made reservations at the ACOE park at J Percy Priest Lake. Looks like a great place and it was very full for the week we will be in Nashville. Will spend 3 nites in one space then move to another for the remaining two. Don't mind doing so and at $20/nite who can complain.

Pucketts Grocery and the Franklin Brewery are on our list of places to visit.

Thanks Again
