5 Reviews of Cove Lake State Park
Nice quiet camping

this campground is nice and wooded which I love. Our site did not have shade trees but most did. Sites are gravel and ours was pretty level. There were trees behind site that we were able to put our hammocks in that wasn’t nice. The sites were pretty big too which a fantastic amount of room to throw ball and play! Bath houses were clean but typical state park bath houses. We were right across from one that the playground was near which wasn’t nice. We were told there were some great trails to hike but we didn’t venture towards them because hiking with a 6 month old is not our idea of fun! Lol there’s is a massive pool but we had to pay to get into it and had to drive to it. That was a bummer. The campground was beautiful and nice to simply walk around. We would go back.

Great Campground

We absolutely love this place! It is our children’s favorite campground!

Bee Rock in Daniel Boone Park

The history of the name of this rock is really strange…who knew bee keepers could be so violent?? The hike up the Bee is worth it and good for the little ones, lots of little rock formations to explore and only about a mile or two long. There were a few other trails too. The campsites are all along or close to the water among the trees, so very lovely and rather private. Toilets are only pit style but there’s water spigots. Overall it’s a simple site that feels quaint, natural, and part of Appalachia history that makes a good overnight as you explore the area.

Cove Lake State Park

This is right of freeway 75 north of Knoxville and beats staying in a motel on a road trip. This is a nice green campground but only a very few sites are close to the water. The campsites are a little small, close, and open with a playground within earshot of many of the sites. People were boating and swimming, but we just took a walk along the lovely (easy) trail along the lake. Lovely rolling hills.

Ok campground

The campground hosts are good. The campground is in a good location. Would have veen better if bathrooms were cleaned and stocked better.
