We spent the weekend camping at Cove Lake State Park and had a lovely time. The main highlight is the beauty of Cove Lake. The campsite itself has many spots, but only a few are waterside. It is very popular with RVers and many sites had hook-ups. The absence of tent pads make the grounds more geared to RVers in... More

The hiking trail we went on, was too close to the Interstate and we had a lot of noise. Inside the park there are great paved walkways and I would recommend taking all of them. Great way to take your dog on a long walk. Campground was above average because of the big grassy area in the middle of our... More

The trails are well kept and go on for quite a long ways. You can walk to your hearts content along the river. There is also a playground for kids, basket ball courts and a baseball field.

The views are great. Very accessible trails. Few people may realize that they can drive 30 minutes north of Knoxville and reach the Cumberland Trail at this state park... and can conceivably backpack for days. The devil's racetrack trail starts from here and is beautiful but I don't recommend hiking the Cumberland Trail in that direction because the trail so... More

Really enjoy it. We always stop at the BBQ joint at Cove lake when traveling down south and walk around the park when the weather is nice.

The scenery is okay. If you want to go tent camping, go somewhere else. We wanted to go to Fall Creek Falls but it was booked.

It's actually been about 2009 when I last camped here, very nice place,well maintained. The staff and park officials were so nice and helpful. I will be going back in the summer of 2015. I would recommend this park to anyone!!

Cove Lake State Park Campground has 4 nice rv site rights right on the water with a pretty view. The trouble is there are a lot of Geese honking at each other for water rights which is annoying plus the ## they leave on the ground. The showers had no benches or shelves to put your stuff on. We found... More
