Rockland Recreation Center is by far my favorite place to go anytime the weather is nice! I have probably been to Rockland at least 100 times in the past 2 years. There are plenty of trees to hammie hang (my favorite)—even some right by the water.
The concrete tables and scattered pavilions make it possible to enjoy the park along with many others at the same time. The fishing pier is an added bonus. I have never been to the park and not seen geese or ducks!
Rockland Recreation Area is about 6 miles from I65 on the outskirts of Nashville, in Hendersonville, Tn.
Army Corp of Engineers are "stewards" of the area so it is very well kept. I stopped at the office first thing and got a map and information.
- No camping here
- If you were born after 1989 you have to have a license for any watercraft usage ( including kayak I was told)
- Definitely a water sport area, no trails here, but there is an archery area.
- Lotsa picnic tables, couple of shelters (reserve) and restrooms
- Boatramp and docks to tie on to.
Nice place to spend a lazy afternoon fishing.
