The thing about living in the city is you can’t really enjoy all that Tennessee has to offer. Nashville and other large cities may have country music stars, but you can’t see all the beautiful stars above in the nighttime sky!

Looking to take a break? Get away from the traffic, noise and really see the best of Tennessee? We have just the spot. Come to Center Hill Lake! With all of the natural beauty, it’s the ideal spot to kick back and take a much needed breather.

Check out these local spots. Just a short drive from Nashville and just in time forwarmer temps!

Rent a Boat or Book a Cruise

Center Hill Lake Marinas

Alright, so Nashville has Old Hickory Lake and Percy Priest, but Center Hill Lake is where it’s at. Known for our clean water and laid back vibe, this is the place to be this fall. Stop in at one of the marinas for a boat rental. 

Be sure to book ahead! Boat rentals are limited.

Tour coves, waterfalls, + the lake

Want to explore? Consider renting a jet ski, boat, kayak or canoe! This is a great way to discover the lake. 

See Giant Waterfalls

by boat on Center Hill Lake

So there’s like…a ton of waterfalls around the lake. You can access two by boat, jet ski or kayak (depending on water level of course). Definitely add this to the itinerary! You can also visit a few state parks and see the waterfalls.

Roam a State Park

Edgar Evins, Burgess Falls and Rock Island State Park contain portions of the lake’s shoreline making it a great place to go if you don’t have a boat. Window Cliffs State Park is also nearby and features trails, waterfalls and 200′ cliff top views. Pack a picnic, hang out at the dock, kayak, swim – the possibilities are endless! 

Take a Hike

No really, take a hike! There are so many beautiful places around Center Hill Lake and in this region. Your bucket list will seem endless. Grab a good pair of waterproof hiking boots, your sense of adventure and hit the road.

It’s been a long day. Maybe you have been wakeboarding, surfing or flying around on a jet ski. It’s time to chow down! Pull up to one of the marinas for a lakeside dining experience.
