Great views with good food too!

Splendid scenery abounds! Quiet and beautiful. Great walking paths and the BBQ place on-site offers great food at a great price in an upscale casual setting.

This park is like 30 miles from Knoxville and its ideal for having picnic and fun. You can bring your food or purcharse in the restaurants all along the road. You can sit, relax and have a great lunch with family. There are a few trails, so you can go for a walk

Well manicured lawns, paved paths for walking or biking. The restaurant onsite is a BBQ joint where the food has never let me down! Monday and Thursday nights around 6:30pm you also get to enjoy bluegrass music. Great family entertainment.

Park has a very nice trail to walk around the lake. It was very clean and the lawn was cut and well kept.

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
