Edgar Evins State Park celebrated a grand re-opening of its 60-site campground on Wednesday, May 21 with state and local representatives. Most of the 60 sites received upgrades from 30 amp to 50 amp electrical service. In addition, the platform-type sites of steel and concrete were inspected and any potential structural degradation issues were repaired.
The renovation project also included the extension of the length of several sites to accommodate larger RVs. Situated around the slopes of Center Hill Lake, many of the sites have lake views.
Edgar Evins State Park is located on the shores of Center Hill Lake in the steep, hilly Eastern Highland Rim. The 6,000-acre park provides many recreational opportunities and accommodations on one of the most beautiful reservoirs in Tennessee. In addition to campsites, Edgar Evins State Park has 34 split level cabin suites, including ADA accessible and pet friendly units.
Reservations can be made by contacting the park at 931-858-2114 or online at https://tnstateparks.itinio.com/edgar-evins.
