Stopped of here for the night on the way to NC. Chose this due to ability to make reservations. It turned out to be a great choice. Great site with unexpected water and electric. Some of the sites have the table down a few steps, and some sites will be an uphill back in, so do your homework when picking. Website had great pics and desc... more

Beautiful large level campsite with full hookups. Close to clean restrooms with washer and dryer. Nice hikes and waterfalls. Good for kayakers.

We did get the last site they had. So check ahead for availability if possible. We were on a spur of the moment kinda thing.

Did some hiking and took plenty of pictures of the nearby waterfalls. Was very peaceful place to stay.

“Peaceful Camping Experience”

Reviewed May 14, 2018

We chose this campground as our first destination during our road trip because it was close enough to Nashville and we also wanted to visit Cummins Falls State Park. Our arrival to the campground was easy and the staff was very welcoming. They have firewood available for purchase. Also during our walk around the campground we notice... more

This is one of the nicest parks I've stayed in. Sites were level, beautiful new picnic tables, fire rings, and charcoal grills. Area not paved were raked gravel. Clean baths including showers. Lots of great hiking, and beautiful water falls. Seniors (62 and older) 25% discount over normal rate; discount made it very easy to stay here. ... more

We love Rock Island State Park, which is located on the Cumberland Plateau in middle Tennessee.   The 883 acre park begins at the headwaters of Center Hill Lake at the confluence of the Caney Fork, Collins and Rocky Rivers.  The park’s whitewater sections attract freestyle kayakers from around the world.  There is also a sand beach and... more

“Beautiful state park with waterfalls and hiking trails!”

Reviewed Nov 14, 2016

Overall Rating

We stayed here to be close-ish to both Nashville and the Isha Center outside of McMinnville. While it ended up being a bit farther from Nashville than we would have preferred, it was a nice place to stay for a week. The park is along a river with numerous beaches, picnic areas, and hiking trails. This is a park worth visiting just to... more
