Montgomery Bell State Park-Camp Tanase

See how a week-long adventure prepares kids for a lifelong appreciation of the wild.

Hi friends…

Welcome to the Wild Side… I’m Steve Hall…

It is described as a whirlwind of a week… a one of a kind experience… with nothing else like it in the country. Camp Tanase at Montgomery Bell State Park in Dickson County had kids from across Tennessee.. with others crossing several state lines for an opportunity to be a part of the adventure… and some of them had so much fun… they didn’t want to leave.

Every adventure happens on the grounds of Montgomery Bell State Park. If you are an adult who was captivated by the opportunities for adventure, the park offers a lodge, cabins and a campground.
