We stayed during the Thanksgiving holiday and had a nice time. The cabins were equipped with everything I needed and were very clean. These are tri-level cabins so there are stairs inside. One set going up to the kitchen and living area, and then a larger set going down to the bedroom. The beds were fairly comfortable. The main problem... More

We stayed here for a week at the end of June 2014,it's quite unique as all the 60 sites are on timber platforms with some overlooking center hill lake. The Rangers are very helpful and friendly, and the host couple too. They have three bath houses so where ever you camp you will be close by. Center hill lake is... 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
