Discover Cumberland Mountain State Park


Getting Outdoors

Cumberland Mountain State Park offers plenty of opportunities to get outdoors. Down by the lake, you can rent canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, and pedal boats from Memorial Day through the end of October. If you have a permit, you're also welcome to bring your own watercraft. In the summer, cool off in the Olympic-sized swimming pool and test your nerve on the three-meter-high diving board. The family-friendly shallow end is perfect for little ones.

There's excellent fishing in the 35-acre lake, so why not cast a line for trout, bass, bluegill, and catfish? Try your luck from the shoreline or rent a fishing boat and unlock access to deeper water. Stretch your legs on 14 miles of well-marked hiking trails, including a scenic loop around the lake. Pick up a map from the park office and watch for local birdlife like herons and belted kingfishers. Craving an adventure? Throw some camping gear into your rental RV and spend the night sleeping under the stars on the Overnight Trail. Thrillseekers can take on a one-and-a-half-mile dedicated mountain bike trail, the first of its kind in Cumberland County.

Golfers will jump at the chance to tee off at the iconic Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain Golf Course. One of the most popular golfing experiences in Tennessee, the par 72 course designed by Jack Nicklaus is set among mature pines and is regularly voted one of the top ten in North America. For a glimpse of the park's fascinating past, visit the Homestead House Museum, an original 1930s building filled with local artifacts and memorabilia from the Great Depression and New Deal era.
