Rock Island State Park


Rock Island State Park cabins are located on the headwaters of Center Hill Lake at the confluence of the Caney Fork, Collins and Rocky Rivers. Cabin guests can visit the scenic Great Falls, a 30-foot cascading waterfall, and the Caney Fork Gorge that overlooks the Easter Highland Rim. Nearby cabin activities include boating, swimming, hiking, picnicking, fishing, and birding. In addition, during the summer, cabin visitors can participate in interpretive and recreational programs that consist of canoe floats, rock hops, wildflower hikes, history tours, live animal presentation, and more. Rock Island cabins are also in close proximity to other state parks including Burgess Falls and Fall Creek Falls State Parks. Whatever your adventure, Rock Island cabins are the perfect place to enjoy the beauty and history of Middle Tennessee.

If cabins are fully booked at Rock Island State Park, we encourage you to look for cabin reservations at nearby Edgar Evins State Park just 55 minutes from Rock Island. The park offers lakeside cabins on the shores of Center Hill Lake and nearby access to activities at Rock Island.
