Center Hill Lake


Center Hill Lake is located in middle Tennessee, just east of Nashville.

Originally created in 1948 by a dam constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Center Hill Lake is 64 miles long covering an area of 18,220 acres. With roughly 415 miles of shoreline and rolling ridge tops, Center Hill Lake and the surrounding small towns are the state’s absolute best of the best.

Major tributaries of the lake include the Caney Fork and the Falling Water River. Edgar Evins, Burgess Falls and Rock Island State Park contain portions of the lake’s shoreline. Peaceful coves lead to large waterfalls and other falls can be found near the lake.
