This park is huge! 6000 acres of hilly, woody, beauty! There are hiking trails, plenty of picnic spots, boat access, a marina with restaurant, camping area, swimming, fishing, butterfly area, and planned attractions for the entire family. Cabins are available for rent. Cedar Hill Lake is the result of the Cedar Hill dam on the Caney Fork River. The Caney... More

I've stayed at E Evins SP several times in the past. It's a quiet little park in the late fall, with showy autumn foliage and views of Center Hill Lake. Very few people were there this late in November, making our visit very relaxing. Cookeville is 20 minutes away, with all the amenities of a small city/regional hub. The lodging... More

Last weekend, a group that I am involved in held a small meeting at Edgar Evins State Park. This was our first visit to the park, so we went in not knowing what to expect. We stayed in the park cabins. They are nice, and are well suited for families. All dishes, linens, etc are provided. The beds are comfortable,... More

Had lots of fun on this once a year history hayride. The characters we met along the way told us the story of the conflict felt in the area during the Civil War (known as War of Northern Aggression here), among the families supporting both sides, and life for the moon shiners. Fun and our 9 year old grandchildren loved... More

Our family just spent a wonderful 3-day weekend at Edgar Evins State Park. The cabins are clean, comfortable and well maintained. Think of a decent, B-grade condo. Just fine for a few days. Center Hill lake has some of the best boating in the Southeast. Amazing! However, BOATERS BEWARE!! Don't plan on using the purported "Courtesy Dock." We were advised... More

We stayed in one of the cabins with our 2 toddlers and puppy. We were pleasantly surprised by the 'modern' aspect of the cabin ~ it was like a townhouse set in the middle of the woods. Private balcony, clean, well stocked kitchen. Fairly well-stocked; the coffee maker lacked filters. I had to borrow some from friendly neighbors. We enjoyed... More
