Very nice park just off the interstate. Has camping, fishing, walking trails and good food. You have to rent their boats to get on lake. Also has a seasonal pool. I don't camp but my friends have told me it's a great place to park your trailer unit. You can also bike on the paved paths. Has picnic areas with... More

Is a great place to bike around the paved paths, I had my young daughter and teenage son, it's a safe plAce so I felt comfortable letting him do a couple extra laps around the trails when my little one was tired out. Then we went for a swim in their very nice pool, clean and attentive life guards.

We rented a Jon boat and fished for a half day for $15.00. Cove Lake is all electric so bring your trolling motor!

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
