Nice little campground

Clean campground with plenty of recreation for the kids. Everything is spread out so be prepared to walk or take a short drive.

Beautiful, Private, Primative

Belle and Beau Acres is the perfect spot for a private getaway. The camp host, Christine, is super friendly and gracious! The property is just a couple miles from I-75, so is very convenient to get to, but not so close that you hear any road noise.

You have your choice of sites, either in the heavily wooded timber, in the field, or by the creek. We stayed in the timber and it was glorious! Lots of downed wood to burn, several level sites, lighting bugs for entertainment at night, waking to the sound of birds chirping and even some wild turkeys passing through.

There was another group camping by the creek, so we didn’t go down there and disturb them, but I’m told there are some waterfalls, and pools in the creek to cool off in. You can’t drive directly to the creek, it is a short hike.

They have a nice little comfort station located by the trailhead to the creek. You will need to bring your own waste bags and shower bag to use it.

If you like seclusion and privacy, you’ll love this place!

Private camping at it’s finest

Absolutely loved this campground! It has open acreage as well as timber and water front options. It has a comfort station for an outdoor shower and an emergency #2. Hosts were incredibly nice and the property is gorgeous. Woke up to 2 jakes walking through our campsite below our rooftop tent. Property is back away from any houses and extremely peaceful. Would be an awesome place for a group to camp and still have their own privacy as well. There is a waterfall on the property and a small stream you can wade up through. It was easy to find and just a couple hours from Knoxville and 1 hour from Nashville!

Your Average Suburban Campground

Nice campground, if a bit suburban. Pool, parking lots, nice bathrooms. Tons of spots available even on a weekend in June. Short (5-10 min) drive to the river. If I did it again I'd find a backcountry spot - there are several on the Angel Falls trail that are just a short walk in.

Good camp area

Good and clean campground with boat ramp, bath house, playground, picnic areas. Nice shady campsites, great views of beautiful Lake Cumberland. Good family place.

Good camp ground

My family and I have camped here most of my life. There has been lots of improvements to the camp ground. There is also several shelters you can rent for different events. There are hiking trails near the entrance of the camp. There is several different types of camp areas ranging from primitive to cabins. There are several play ground areas close by for the kids to play. You can bring your boats along and put them in right there they have 2 different ramps on either side of the camp ground. The only thing I would add is another bath house at the lower end of the camp areas. Something for everyone.

Beautiful

Nice area. No sewer or cable but everything else is good. Government run facility.

Amazing!!

We have made this our yearly campground we go already once. This place is great they have everything campsite are big, bathroom and showers are together located in the middle of the grounds. The staff is amazing! It is family owned and they are probably the nicest people you will meet. The general store is key great sandwiches, wonderful ice cream, it also has all of the basics. They have plenty of souvenirs. It is a great place to go and relax. It is located right across from Cummins falls which is perfect for the hike. If you want to do the hike which I highly encourage it. We hike down everytime so far and love it. Pro tip if you want to go on the hike go early almost right when the park opens. There are les people which makes the hike more enjoyable. We can’t wait to go back and I hope to see you down there!

Home away from home

This place speaks to your soul. River side tent sites on a shaded, sandy river bank. Reserve online, go straight to camping!! Self serve, no fuss. Fire rings provided. Local guy delivers firewood to your site with one call!! Trails, canoe, kayak, swim, fish, relax. Great time to be had here. Affordable!!!

Waters edge camping!!

The best campground on GRL!!! Only flaw…. no showers!

Relaxing place to stay

Very friendly owners of this campground. Well stocked fishing lake. Reasonably priced. Well taken care of. Level camp sites with plenty of room for larger campers. Will definitely return.

Very compact

Great campground when not busy. Sites right next to each other. We were the only ones there the night we were there and it was really lovely. Lots of trash along the shore, very sad to see. Wonderful campground hosts!

Wonderful Eclipse Weekend

Some friends and I camped at Standing Stone during the 2017 Solar Eclipse. The state parks in Tennessee all hosted special programs for the event, and Standing Stone park rangers invited everyone to row out on the lake to watch this magnificent phenomenon. They provided boats and life jackets for everyone who registered and made sure everyone made it out on the water in time. The park also provided everyone with takeaway bags that included eclipse glasses and commemorative swag.

The campground and facilities included water and electric hookups as well as bathrooms with showers. Dogs are allowed as are camp vehicles.

The park has lots of great hiking trails, a playground, and a pool with concessions.

At the end of our trip, my car battery died and we called the park office. Within minutes, a park ranger arrived to jump me off. I can't say enough good things about this park.

Lots of history

This this campsite offers everything you need for a great camping experience. Out tent camping was complete with electricity and a short walk to the bathhouse. It also offered a fire pit and picnic table and lots of shade. You can rent a small Jon Boat for $50 a day and they also offer small bundles of firewood for $5. We fished on Kelly Lake and caught about six fish that were keepers.

Great camping experience

Standing Stone is a great place to camp. The park has spacious campsites, a beautiful lake, and lots of great hiking trails. I would definitely go back.

Great time!

Family oriented, pet friendly, peaceful with playground for the kids and lots of nature to explore.

Great for boating!

Great beach access. Quite and very clean.

Beautiful Landscapr

Campground is surrounded by lake. Has a beach for swimming and playgrounds for the kids.

Great Campground

Nice COE campground. Plenty of trees . Clean and quiet

Great Campground

Fishing Creek Campground is an very nice campground. Located on the Fishing Creek portion of Lake Cumberland. This is a Corp of Engineers facility. Well maintained and shady. Lots of trees. Both RV and primitive camping. Playground, bath house and boat ramp are available. Some sites have a lake view. This is a nice quiet place to stay.

Great Place

I have camped at this campground for over 58 years. It has been improved over the years and still needs work. More RV sites have been added. More are needed. Great place to go camping and priced well.

Super friendly very close to lake

sites r spacious

beautiful views

I have been going to this campground my entire life. It has 10 sites that are spread out on kind of a peninsula sticking out in the lake. It is up on a hill,so the walk to lake is a hefty one from some of the sites. The sites are level and spacious, also they feel secluded. The ramp is a steep grade as are most of the ramps at this lake. The showers and bathrooms are clean and updated. There is a dump station on site. There is a playground and plenty of walking to do. The sites have electric and I think water on each site. The hosts were wonderful. It is out in the middle of nowhere, but worth it. We drove out and bought ice and vegetables on the honor system at a little stand. There are stores to restock supplies not too far away and it is about 20 minutes to Conley Bottom Marina which has a restaurant and general store. We love this place and will definitely go back.

Awesome people!

Great location (close to the obed). Friendly, happy group. They have a brewery in place with great beer options. Bathrooms are two portapottys but well cleaned.

ATV Riders Paradise

This place is surrounded by thousands of miles of riding trails, so bring your Side-by-side! New River runs through it also, so it’s perfect to fish, float or kayak. We were in a tent, but the have cabins also, not sure about rv sites. We stayed in August and they had a concert event going on and it was a blast!

Upper Cumberland Visit

Just getting in from a fun weekend at Old Mill Camp in Cookeville, TN. Old Mill is a private campground directly across the street from the entrance to Cummins Falls State Park (the park is a day Park only and has no camping on site). Wide open sites with plenty of well established trees to provide shade. New, modern bathhouse. Hiking to the falls is adventurous requiring two creek crossings (that can be up to knee deep or more depending on where you cross) and some bouldering, but once you get to the falls it’s amazing. The area is right on the Upper Cumberland Wine Trail so lots of impressive wineries nearby. There is also 4 breweries (a fifth opens the end of Oct 2018) in the area. Oh, and you have to visit Ralph’s Donut Shop in downtown Cookeville! We’d really like to go back in warmer weather to take advantage of the many swimming holes on the hike to the falls and be able to play in the falls.

Hiking and Scenery

Not a large campground. Some of the best hiking and scenery around. Excellent location.

The marina us very welcoming. The staff are very helpful.

This campground is very clean and the rangers are very effective at keeping the noise down.

So well kept and amazing scenery

The facilities are amazing and well maintained. There is a large loop for primitive camping and additional loops for electric/ RV sites. If you are a mountain biker, you can ride directly from the campground.

Proximity Is Key!!

When coming to Cummins Falls you want to be able to enjoy the day fully, especially when traveling from far away. If you arrive early and are wanting to fully hike down to the waters it is a must to arrive early and by the time you finish enjoying activities driving is not something that sounds appealing. This camp is perfect for allowing you to do just that. Just off property from the falls this is the closest place you can stay and it pays off big dividends!!

Where there is no sign of wifi, this place has your back. Where there is no store in site, again this place is reasonable and well equipped. But this isn't just a place to stay it is a place where you can also have additional activities including Kayaking and horseback riding.

But perhaps my favorite thing about this site is they ALWAYS allow walk-up camping for primitive tent camping and can accommodate a lot of campers. For me as a tent camper with no hook ups it was $20, had I have wanted electrical those sites are $35. Both sites come pretty standard and similar in way of picnic tables, fire rings and parking which is really nice.

I was there midweek and there were a lot of other campers but it didn't seem loud and I really liked that there was an area which said campers only so people just coming out to the falls weren't roaming around camp.

  • Check out other things to do in the area, it is a really neat area with tons of things to do within driving distance. This is a great place to hub.

  • Enjoy the Falls but be mindful of the hours, it is not a 24/7 site and does close if you arrive late in the day you will not be able to go all the way down the trail to the water itself.

  • Check their website because they are in the process of upgrading their facility even further and will soon be offering cabins as well :)
