About Center Hill Lake
A Treasure of Tennessee

Center Hill Lake is a recreational splendor in the heart of Tennessee. Featuring waterfalls, rocky bluffs, and hardwood forests, the lake isn’t just your average escape.

The forested hills of the Tennessee Eastern Highlands are its pristine encasing. The lake sees over one million visitors a year but still manages a natural environment.

Under 100 Miles from Nashville

Nashville is approximately an hour’s drive away. The city is full of music venues, restaurants, bars, hotels, and attractions. It includes the Nashville International Airport and several large hospitals.

Cookeville is northeast of the lake if you are looking for a closer source of restaurants and shops. Families will appreciate having schools in Cookeville, Smithville, and Gordonsville.

Sparkling Waters

Center Hill Lake spans 18,220 acres and reaches depths of 195 feet. Its 415-mile shoreline includes inlets and coves where anglers and swimmers can escape the open waters.

Watercraft of all kinds travel the waters: pontoons, powerboats, jet skis, kayaks, canoes, fishing boats, and more. Waterskiing, wakeboarding, and tubing are popular activities.

Center Hill Marina & Yacht Club, Edgar Evins Marina, Hurricane Marina, and Hidden Harbor Marina are convenient for boat slips, rentals, and other services.

There is an impressive number of amenities around the lakeshore! There are 31 boat ramps, 25 recreation areas, seven swimming areas, 10 playgrounds, 388 campsites, and 20 trails.

Edgar Evins State Park is the largest park on the lake, covering 6,000 acres. It features 12 miles of hiking trails. They host a variety of events including wildflower walks, fishing lessons, and kayak tours.

Burgess Falls, Cul-Car-Mac Falls, and Great Falls are located off the waters of Center Hill Lake. Each is a beautiful sight and also serves as a swimming hole.

Falcon Rest, a Victorian mansion in McMinnville, delivers an exciting history lesson about the home during a guided tour with its owner, followed by a sit-down dinner.
