Center Hill Lake is a low key spot in middle Tennessee, located about an hour from Nashville. It’s much more than a lake though – it’s an experience!
There are three state parks bordering the lake and a few waterfalls you can get to by water. Burgess Falls, Fancher Falls and Rock Island Twin Falls are all located on the water. Access is determined by water level – with rainfall and the dam, it can fluctuate.
If you are looking for a place to go this summer, consider this one of them. Take a boat, jet ski, kayak, canoe or paddle board and spend the day at the falls!
The easiest place to launch from: Cookeville Boat Dock. They offer rentals so no worries if you don’t have your own kayak. You can also grab lunch or dinner at Lighthouse Restaurant before or after your trip.
From Cookeville Boat Dock:
Go left – the boat slips will be on your left. You will pass all of these. Turn right at the first cove. This will look more like a large fork. Wind through the cove and eventually, you will see it!
