Stick with us! We are your 2 lane tour guide – or should we say waterway guide? We are here to put you on. You need to know about all of these local places!
If you are familiar with the lake or follow our pages, you know there are quite a few waterfalls around here. Three large waterfalls are accessible by water: Burgess Falls, Fancher Falls and Rock Island’s Twin Falls. There are also several smaller ones coming off the ridges around the lake – especially before you get to Fancher Falls.
AND there are also several other waterfalls in the area you need to see.
Of course access to each of these waterfall on the lake is determined by water level which fluctuates due to rainfall and Center Hill Dam.
If you are planning a trip to the lake and want to see the waterfalls, it’s best to come in the spring or summer. Be sure to check water level before.
So how do you get to Fancher Falls on the lake? The best place to launch from is Cookeville Boat Dock.
The directions are really easy:
From Cookeville Boat Dock, go left. The boat slips will be on your left. You will pass all of these. Turn into the first cove on the right – this will look like a really large fork. Keep paddling as you wind back into the cove, and eventually you will see Fancher Falls. (This is technically Taylor Creek)
