Middle Tennessee brings about a change in terrain with the Highland Rim. Campers will find wooded campgrounds sheltered by a thick tree canopy with plenty of access to lakes and streams. West Tennessee is defined by the shores of the Mississippi River--camp in the lowlands near the shoreline and enjoy the scenic view of the famous river.
