Cedar Ridge Hammock Campground
The Cedar Ridge Hammock Campground is a unique camping area for primitive and group-style camping.
The details: The Wild Cherry, Sweet Gum, Locust, and the Pine Wheel sites accommodate six hammocks and the Pine Wheel Site can hold up to 24 hammocks. Amenities for each site include access to water, a stone picnic table, fire ring, lantern hook, and grill. A bathhouse is located a short distance away via a gravel path along with proximity to a dumpster. Finally, the hammock campground has close and convenient parking at the pool parking area for vehicles, small buses, and enclosed trailers common with groups.
Groups may also reserve this area, but you must reserve all four sites at the same time. All group reservations must be made in advance and by calling the park office directly.
What makes this camping area so cool? This is the first campground in the Tennessee State Park system that was designed and built with all recycled or reutilized materials as well as lumber from felled trees inside the park. The campground was designed to be waste-free and self-sustaining with amenities such as composting areas for campfire and grill waste. The four sites are built from cedar posts salvaged from a winter storm. The sites are named for the trees located inside. A solar charging station (suitable for charging handheld devices) is in the works in the immediate future.
Policies & Disclaimers
To help protect our trees from invasive pests, ALL campfires must be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase locally in the communities around the park.
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 DontMoveFirewood.org now!
