Public Notice as of March 14, 2017: Dunbar Cave State Park is currently in the process of restoring the lake to a more pristine and functional body of water that will better serve visitors. In order for this to be accomplished, Tennessee State Park staff are lowering the lake to conduct soil testing. Once tested, staff will be better able to assess the situation and devise a cost-effective repair that will enhance the lake for the local community.
PUBLIC NOTICE: Due to being in the path of the Solar Eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21, Dunbar Cave State Park is expecting larger than usual visitation. If you plan to visit the park, we urge you to arrive early as roads may be congested. Please be aware that areas of the park may be closed at the discretion of park management and if the park reaches capacity, gates will be closed.
