The park is built along a river gorge. Gorgeous waterfalls and hiking. Supposedly, you can wade into the river and get closer to the falls during the summer, but during the winter the river was very high and limited accessibility to those features.

This is only 2 hours out of Nashville, but was a really nice surprise. I didn't know we had water falls like this in TN; absolutely beautiful. There were trails, as well as boats that you could rent while you were there. Loved it and recommend it for getting away; the country roads drive was a great part of the... More

We visitor Rock Island State Park as part of our family Christmas and stayed in one of the cabins. They were not bad at all and very reasonable. Three bedrooms, two baths, kitchen and sitting area were the cabin's floor plan. We went hiking on one of the many trails and saw multiple deer and wild turkey. The river was... More

Rock Island was the perfect quick trip for our family reunion. Our crew occupied three cabins which were conveniently located near everything we needed for the weekend (trails, waterfalls, antique shops, gas station, and more!). The cabins were not fancy but they served their purpose just fine. Would definitely recommend Rock Island to anyone interested.

I love the outdoors amd this is the perfect place to go. Good place for taking photos of nature and family, hiking, going on a Sunday stroll, ect. We bring our dogs and they enjoy it too. Just be sure to check for ticks when you get home they seem to be very bad down there for some reason.

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths. Clean. Not the newest facility, but not severely dated either. Living nearby, we rented this for an overnight school group team-building experience. With a total of 7 people staying there, it was more than big enough. There was plenty of kitchen and dining room area. Living room area was enhanced by the open-area connection with the... More
