 What is it about Center Hill Lake that makes each visitor fall in love with the area?

Maybe it’s the low key, slow pace of the lake lifestyle or maybe it’s the countless scenic spots. Maybe it’s that rural wilderness that feels more like backwoods magic.

Center Hill Lake is much more than a lake. It’s a lifestyle and way of life. With multiple waterfalls accessible by water and sprawling state parks and natural areas in the region, it feels and sounds much more like folklore passed down from generation to generation.

Located centrally to Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville, the lake is known as one of the cleanest and most well preserved lakes in the state.

With Tennessee’s four distinct seasons, this area offers an ever changing scene and mild climate. It’s said if you don’t like the weather, give it a couple days and it will change.

With countless waterfalls, three bordering state parks and several surrounding attractions, your bucket list may seem endless.
