Cove Lake Campground is a perfect place for kids: there's a pool and an excellent playground. That being said, we were a bit disappointed. The sites were a bit too close for our taste, and it had more of a "field" feel to it, especially in C Loop. The sites are gravel, and some appeared to be rather short. Our... More

It turned out to be a great place to stop for the night on our way to Asheville, NC . My husband and I strolled through the park and I took a few pictures as the sun was setting. People were picnicking, some were fishing, and some walking their dogs. A very beautiful spot.

This was our second RV trip to Cove Lake State Park. It is a popular, moderately managed campground that both local campers and travelers use. Sites are graveled, of average size and mostly level to slight incline. Sections A and B are older sections, but have more shade from large Cedar trees and other deciduous trees. Handicapped sites located near... More

Cove Lake State Park is a good spot to spend a summer's afternoon... Rode our bikes to it. There are all the amenities of a nice park with barbequing, playing sports or just relaxing. There is a nice restaurant on site. I highly recommend this park.

We stopped by here for lunch on our way to Dandbridge and were going to walk one of the trails behind the restaurant and were a little disappointed it was so close to the highway and decided not to go. The restaurant food was only fair and the whole place needed up dating. The whole experience was like going to... More

Living in Knoxville, this is a great campground for a close weekend getaway. Spacious campsites, with many different options for everything from tent campers to Class A - just check out the website for site descriptions. Some are even right on the water. We stayed with friends on the loop that circled a large grassy area. Even though the entire... More

Whenever we stay in Caryville, we make a point to drive through the State Park and end our tour with dinner at the restaurant located near the entrance. The food is great and the people very friendly. On one trip, we even met the restaurant owner in the parking lot. He was loading his vehicle for a carry out order,... More

Cove Lake State Park campground has gorgeous views of the lake and the mountains. Reservations can be made online. The sites are adequately maintained and have picnic tables and fire rings. The bath houses are sufficient (1 is pretty old but is kept clean). There is a swimming pool (currently closed due to lack of lifeguards), picnic pavilions, walking/biking trails,... More

I stopped here on my way back from camping in Kentucky. I had my bike and had heard that it was fun to ride around the lake. It wasn't a very long ride, but I made a couple of full loops while my dog napped in the camper in a shady parking spot. There were lots of families picnicing, playing... More
