Rock Island State Park

Being a Crossville native, I pride myself on knowing the area. I'm ashamed to say that I was probably 30 years old before I visited Rock Island State Park. This amazing area is about an hour southwest of Crossville.

Rock Island State Park was established in 1969 around the Great Falls Gorge. The park extends from the confluence of the Caney Fork and Collins Rivers to the headwaters of Center Hill Lake. 

At the top of the gorge is Great Falls Dam. This is the only TVA-owned dam that is outside of the Tennessee River watershed.

Just below the dam, you can see the Great Falls Cotton Mill. It is a three-story brick building that was built in 1892 and operated until 1902.

Below the cotton mill is Great Falls. Great Falls is a series of waterfalls that flow year around due to water being released from the dam. When the water is high, the falls are almost submerged.

Twin FallsBelow the gorge is Twin Falls. Great Falls Dam caused the Collins River to rise. Water from the river began to flow through caverns, exiting into the Caney Fork as Twin Falls. 

The park is popular with hikers, fishermen, and paddlers. There are cabins and a campground that stay booked up most of the year. Whitewater kayakers enjoy the class III-V rapids in the gorge, but paddlers of any ability can paddle from the beach to the headwaters of Center Hill Lake.

Burgess Falls State Park Guided Hike

Wear warm clothing and your hiking boots and join Ranger Dan for a guided hike of Burgess Falls! The entire loop is about 1-1/2 miles round trip and you will see rolling cascades and three large waterfalls along the Falling Water River. This trail is moderately strenuous with a few sections that have stairs, so be prepared for a little bit of a workout. Along the way, Ranger Dan will introduce you to a little bit of the park's history. We will meet at 10:00 AM in the lower (main) parking lot next to the playground and the kiosk. We hope to see you there!

Meet by the kiosk in the lower parking lot at Burgess Falls State Natural Area
