Our campground consists of 60 tent and trailer campsites with electrical and water hookups. These wooden platform-type sites, which are reinforced with concrete and steel, are built around the slopes of Center Hill Lake and are equipped with a picnic table, grill and fire ring. They are designed for trailers or motor homes up to 33 feet in length, with a few select sites up to 40 feet in length. These sites can also accommodate small and large tents. Camper tents requiring tent pegs or stakes are asked to use large nails to secure the tents and to remove the nails when breaking camp.  Also, trash cans are not provided at the individual camp sites, so campers should take trash to the dumpster provided near the camper check-in station.

There are three bathhouses with hot showers located throughout the campground. A sewage dump station is centrally located in the campground. Approximately 20 sites and one bathhouse are open year-round. Pets are allowed in the campground but must be kept on a leash and not left unattended on the campsites. Nine primitive walk-in sites are also available with parking at the camp building. Volunteer campground host site is number 31. 

A small fire circle is located adjacent to the campground, which may be used by the public, provided no park programs are scheduled there. It seats approximately 15 people.  For additional information, contact the park office.

Policies & Disclaimers

Firewood Policy

In order to protect our forests and trees from invasive insects and diseases, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Please refrain from bringing untreated wood into the park.

Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase from concessioners in many of the campgrounds as well as from vendors in the communities around the park. Certified heat-treated wood is clearly marked with a state/federal seal.

The Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive pests are a growing threat to the forests of Tennessee and the surrounding region. To learn more about the pests that threaten Tennessee and what you can do to help prevent the introduction and spread of invasive pests, visit www.protecttnforests.org.
