This review is primarily for camping in the park the campground. My family stayed here in late fall in an attempt to catch the last of the leaves before they were all gone. We camped in our 22 foot Class B van camper. I had read up on the park and was prepared for the elevated campsites. In fact, I... More

I love this park. Very nice location just south of I-40. Edgar Evins Marina is located in the park and they are making many improvements at this marina.

We needed a place to stay in the Cookeville area for the better part of a week and didn't want to stay in town or at a motel. The cabins here were just right for us. Plenty of room, kitchen facilities, very nice setting - and only about a half hour from Cookeville. No too far from Nashville either. The... More

This park is remote and well-maintained, but with a nice marina and a restaurant there. There seem to be a lot of walking trails, and the tower in the visitor center gives a great view of the Center Hill dam in the distance. We stayed in one of the "cabins", which is really more of a rustic hotel. It smelled... More

Well..the office has a lookout tower that's open until 4pm central time. .it's a beautiful view. The trails are pretty rugged, so make sure you are dressed for it. The kayak rental area is across the street from the park. They also have a convenient store across the street with the kayak rental area. The park is very shaded...mosquito repellent... More

We love camping at Edgar Evins. The sites are all located on wood decks overlooking the hillside and lake. During summer the trees block the view of the lake for most of the sites but in early spring and fall can see it from most of them. I like to get the spots on the lower level because they have...

Great park for a picnic, or we took our kayak. Lots of scenery, water was clean. Park was well maintained. Be sure to take a picnic, however there is a restaurant at the marina.

We stayed at the Edgar Evins State Park Cabins. They are a little out dated and don't smell the best, but for the price it's not to bad. I would stay there again. The lake it great and water is clear and feels conditioned. Will be going back to this place again next year.

Came across this park quite by accident, just looking for an overnight stop, once we saw it we decided to build in an extra day just to stay. The campsites are wooden piers and are quite scary at first glance, but, once you get your RV in there it's all worth, so quiet, so beautiful, so affordable. The sites with... More

We came in a little late, and last minute; however, the camp host was quick to get us settled. He gave us the full run down of the area with suggestions on how to enjoy the park more. These deck sites were great. Level, no ants or bugs, great Wifi from our site, clean bath house, and perfect water/electric hook-ups.... More
