The Broken Banjo Campground is located at 586 Campground Road Manchester, TN 37355, just north of the intersection of Hwy 41 and Interstate 24.

What is the sound of a Broken Banjo playing? That’s what you call one of those Zen riddles. And the answer is found in the happy voices of Banjo Campers, laughing it up at the pool, hitting a strike at outdoor bowling, landing a catfish at the pond and setting out on an excursion in Tennessee’s finest vacation country. It sounds like – fun!  

This will be one of the easiest camps you ever camped. All RV sites are pull-throughs, with options from full concrete patio sites to safari tents and cabins, an awesome swimming pool with slide, covered wagon and teepees to quiet tent camping sites, a stocked fishing pond, outdoor movie theater, sand mountain, outdoor bowling, putter’s pool table, mini golf! If you can do everything in one trip, we’ll induct you into The Broken Banjo Family Hall of Fame, once we get one.

Seeing as how the action is mostly outdoors, nature trails are a big item around here, for you to make the most of every nook and dale in the beautiful Tennessee countryside. Some of the sweetest little Tennessee villages surround us, and you can’t swing a banjo without hitting an antiques store.

The biggest single attraction during the summer is the internationally famous Bonnaroo Music Festival, held at the Great Stage Park on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, practically in our backyard. Look up Bonnaroo or visit to see what that’s all about.

Oh, yeah, conveniences. Of course, fast Wi-Fi and cable TV are a must – or not if you’re one of those loveable primitives who love peace, quiet and nature. All kinds of extras, like a big, breezy gazebo, Hunt Brothers Pizza, a Camping Kitchen, large, modern laundry and a fully stocked convenience store.

So, how do you applaud a Broken Banjo player? With one hand, of course.

Family Fun at Broken Banjo

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Pool

Swimming Pool

Here’s the wonderful pool that the two wonderful slides slide into. It’s nice and big, with a beautiful water fountain. You know what to do. Play nice! And check out the Mini-Spray Park in the pool area.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Water Slides

Two Awesome Water Slides

For the big kids (including adults!) we have a twisty flume slide. And for the little ones, their own special super slide.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Splash Park

Mini Spray Park

Running through the sprinkler was never this fun. An entire mini spray park cools off the kids (grown kids welcome) to squeals of joy. Run through the sprays and fountains to your heart’s content.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Gagaball

Gaga Ball

Jump in the ring for a fast-paced punchy sport that only the kids understand (or have the joints for…). Our Gaga Ball pit is open!

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Hiking

Fishing Pond and Nature Trail

Fish the beautiful Banjo pond in the company of our friendly ducks. Enjoy a stroll on our nature trail – great for dog walks. Watch for bunnies and you might catch a deer coming to the edge for a drink. It’s like being in an animated movie! (It’s even G-Rated.)

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Fishing

Catch & Release Fishing

Get fishing gear at the Camp Store and give the fish a run for their money. They’re challenging to catch cuz they do this all the time and know when something’s fishy. (Catchy, huh?)

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Jump Pad

Jump Pad

Kids can kick off their shoes and jump off the energy. Nothing better to launch them into a nap. Available during daylight hours. No night jumpers or line jumpers!

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Baskeball


Get in there, Champ. Show ’em your moves. You could be a legend. Check out a ball at the front desk or it’s going to be a slow game!

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Volleyball


Many happy hours pounding the competition. Stop by the front office to check-out a ball – and play hard, but play nice.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Cornhole


Requires a steady nerve, a supple wrist and absolutely no understanding of the rules of the game, which are basically hit a hole with a bean bag. You win!

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Minigolf

Mini Golf and Practice Green

Tennessee is home to many fine golf courses. Here at the Banjo, we have a mini-golf green and a practice green for “real” golf. Why, we hosted the Harrison Family Reunion Open just last year, the scene of several holes in one and hardly any cheating. Your family could start your own regular tournament!

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Putter Pool

Putters Pool Table

It’s pool! No, it’s golf! No, it’s pool! It’s like billiards and golf had a baby – the Putters Pool Table!

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Bowling

Outdoor Bowling Lane

You think you’re a bowler, huh? You may have to adjust your average after your kids wipe you out at outdoor bowling. You don’t have to rent shoes and it’s a lot better exercise than the alley, too!

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Movies

Outdoor Movies

Movies are SO much better outdoors. You didn’t know that? Have you never been to a drive-in? On selected nights, the barn – uh – we mean the big 8 by 16 movie screen features family-friendly fare. Don’t forget to bring your own popcorn and drinks! Hit the camp store for snacks.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Gazebo

20’ Gazebo

It’s plenty of pavilion for populous parties! Reserve for large get-togethers, shindigs and lollapaloozas.

Modern Camping at Broken Banjo

Rv Park Free Wifi

Free Wi-Fi

Would we let you go all vacation without Wi-Fi? Here’s fast, reliable Wi-Fi, necessary for really roughing it. Did we mention it’s free?

Clean up in our modern bath house.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Laundry


OK, not one of your favorite vacation activities – so let’s get it over with! Easy, clean, modern laundry room with ample washers and dryers.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Pizza1

Hunt Brothers Pizza

Leave the cooking to the Hunt Brothers, located in the Camp Store. Delicious pizza of all imaginable toppings. How can you beat camping and pizza? The best a-round (Get it? It’s a pizza joke.)

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Camp Store

Camp Store

What did you forget? We’ve probably got it if it’s legal. Fishing gear, ice and all the convenience store fare.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Dog Park

Dog Park

Is this where we park the dog! (If we hear that joke one more time …) No! The dog wants to play! And at Hound Dog Park he or she gets their own playground. Lots of space to run off those biscuits and maybe make a friend. Ah, look at that face …

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Dog Washing

Pet Washing Station

This superb pet washing station (we assume dog, but iguana? Who are we to say?) makes it so easy to wash Bandit that he might be cleaner here than he is at home!

Rv Parkt Camp Kitchen

Camping Kitchen

Just when you thought you got away from the kitchen! Seriously, sometimes it’s just easier to have a fully equipped kitchen when the fun of rubbing two sticks together is not getting the job done.

Rv Park Propane

Propane Refills

You’ll never run out at that critical moment. We’ve got plenty. Just say fill ’er-up!

Rv Park Fire Rings

Fire Rings

Every pad and cabin gets its own fire ring with a nice bench for fire-watching. You’ll find wood at the Camp Store.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Pizza

Picnic Tables

Grab a lakeside table and have a picnic for every meal. Our tables are kept spotless and located all around the park in handy locations.

Broken Banjo Manchester Tn Rv Site3
