We love to find water front campsites, especially In the summer time! We love to swim, as does our dog! A lot of people brought their boats, there was a lot of parkIng & easy access for it. There Is a nearby marina, restaurant & shop (make a reservation If you plan to eat there). The views were incredible. The only downside was the driveways were a little tight, we especially had trouble on the way out.
Beautiful view from our camp site. It was one of the cleanest campsites I have been to. The park guy was very nice.
Floating Mill Park is a little oasis in a big old recreation area.
Located next to Floating Mill Campground it is also convenient to several other recreation options in the area.
First, on site you have a boatramp, parking, rentable pavilion, playground and swimming area. This is 5$ a day and an annual pass can be purchased for 40$ which is for all the Army Corps of Engineer facilitates in the area. ( doesn’t include renting the pavilion for large groups)
Next, while your in the area if your not just there for water activities there are several State Parks not to far down the road. Burgess Falls State Park with Window Cliffs Natural Area, and Cummins Falls Stare Park which are crowded but nice go see areas. Window Cliffs is a nice 5+mile out and back hike, technical but some very cool things to see. Take water, snacks but leave your dog at the campsite, their not allowed in the Natural area. Then there are Rock Island And Edgar Evins State Parks down the road a piece.
You can easily plan and execute a float trip with several campsite options to make it a multiple day on the lake. You can stay in the area for several days and do something different every day.
We went over Labor Day weekend in 2016 for my 40th birthday. It was a blast! We hiked Cummins Falls which was too crowded due to the holiday but it was beautiful. The second day we canoed the Caney. That was also really fun but next time we’ll choose the six mile instead of the nine mile. Grocery stores were about 20-30 minutes out.
Camp sites weren’t too close to each other. There were lots of trees for enoing and our view of Center Hill Lake was great.
We had a great time and will definitely go back.
