Scenic Boating Trips: Center Hill Lake


Center Hill Lake, near Smithville, is a reservoir created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers when they created the 260-foot high Center Hill Dam in 1948.

The dam created a 64-mile long lake that covers more than 28 square miles- and all of it is fun boating, surrounded by scenic views of the steep hills that surround it, not to mention the Center Hill Lake waterfalls and of course the views of the dam itself.

Created by the damming of the Caney Fork (its main tributary) and Falling Water River, the 415 miles of shoreline cover portions of three Tennessee state parks: the Edgar Evins, Burgess Falls and Rock Island.

At its maximum depth, the lake is 190 feet deep, and it offers everything from fishing and hiking and boating to camping and even, recently, lake houses have been built for sale as vacation homes.
