Welcome to Clarksville, TN

This is normally the first question that a newcomer to the       Clarksville  /Ft. Campbell area asks me.

My response is it all depends on what is important to you.

Let me first start with where in the world is

Fort Campbell is located part in Kentucky and Tennessee.

Oak Grove/Hopkinsville is on the Kentucky side and Clarksville in on the Tennessee side.
