We stayed here for the long Presidents Day weekend in a wooded drive through spot with few neighbors. We saw 10 deer one morning and hiked a trail with our 3 boys and 2 dogs. Electric and water hook-ups. Firewood available for cash only. Fire ring with grill and picnic table at our spot.
There is easy access and and plenty of space. Very close to where I live so it a great weekender.
Cedars Of Lebanon State Park ,split tree fences and ancient farm equipment, black and white photos in the visitors center, old style cabins and rock boundary fences. History is very present in Cedars.
A 2 mile running trail that meanders through old farm land and indigenous trees. CCC original looking covered benches which overlook a dry stream bed that ends in an exploitable old cave. A wood bridge further down the small valley crosses the stream bed and can be followed to the nature centers very cool garden.Check in before exploring the cave and wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting muddy, low ceiling and headlamp/flashlight needed.
The picnic area which is adjacent the lodge has small and large pavilions for use and fire pits. The lodge looks like it’s the original that you can see in the black and white photos.
The campground has three areas. One has side by side sites, no privacy and not much space but easy in, easy out. The other two loops have more area between sites which are tucked back into the trees. Area 3 is for pop ups , tents and vans with 20 amp electric, Area 2 is for the larger campers, 30 amp and area 1, the side by side is 30 to 50 amp. There is disc golf, a swimming pool and riding stables plus two playgrounds and a nice gazebo that you can rent for special events. Definitely a campground to spend a chill weekend and unwind.
their halloween weekend is a great time of fun for the kids!
A very nice park. A lot to see in the park with great restaurant! It also has a nice golf course.
Three sections. Sec 1 is primarily campers, little close to each other and always a bunch of dogs barking. Secs 2 &3 offer more trees and space-maybe hard for big rvs. They just came thru and updated the bath houses and added more hookups. Lots to do here.
Enjoyed Cedars of Lebanon State Park after completing my first triathalon sprint with some very great girlfriends! Almost all camping spaces were pull through, and they were close, providing for very little privacy. The shower house was the highlight of the campground, as it was very clean, well kept and had endless hot water (it was unusually cold during this stay). Campground has all amenities, and is close to many attractions being located between Nashville and Knoxville.
While on a family road trip to North Carolina for a college graduation we stayed here. We had spent the day in Nashville site seeing and decided to stay here for 1 night (RV) before traveling on. I am glad that we chose this location over the other options. The wooded area and cedar pines reminded me of camping back in Minnesota. The grey brickwork picnic shelters and campground atmosphere gave it a rustic feel however did not spare any amenities to make camping comfortable including water and electrical hookups. I would definitely stay here again if in the area again.
We went to a wedding here in the lodge, it was the most beautiful wedding we’ve ever been to, the historic stonework is amazing. The park has a pool and some cabins, it’s a lovely park and perfect for families. The cabins were much cleaner than we expected and easy to get to with our older relatives. Loved it!!
Lovely park with somewhat unique cedar glades and tons of rare plant life. If you can snag a serious gardener or botanist to visit with you you’re in for a treat. Trails are easy, lots of wildlife, lots of cedars. Lots of horses on site too. And weddings in the lodge all summer. Modern state park setup, clean and well cared for with some extra activities. Tent sites were more private and woody. Cabins seemed popular given what neighbors said. Very nice state park, would return.
