Relocating to Crossville TN...Visit The Cumberland Mountain State Park...

 The Cumberland Mountain State park is a 1720 acre State Park situated on the sandstone tableland of the Cumberland Plateau.The park contains every type of tree, shrub and flower found upon our great mountain. The park is also home to typical Tennessee mammals such as deer, gray and red fox, rabbit, squirrel, raccoon, skunk and a variety of songbirds and waterfowl.

 The History of the Cumberland County State Park shows the spirit of humanity and the importance of family that Crossville, TN maintains today.The land for the Cumberland County State Park was acquired south of Crossville in 1934. It began as a project from the Farm Security Administration to provide a recreation area for some 250 families selected to homestead in the general area of Cumberland County. The Homestead Act was established by the Roosevelt Administration to aid in building a self-sustaining community and further colonize in this then sparsely populated part of Tennessee. The Civilian Conservation Corps, the Works Projects Administration and the American Friends Service Committee constructed the park, which opened in 1940. The parks architecture is unique in the fact that the buildings were/are constructed out of Crab Orchard sandstone. The Parks greatest and biggest feature and well known landmark is the dam/bridge that was constructed of this natural sandstone. It is the largest masonry structure ever built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

Today, sources indicate that the Cumberland Mountain State Park is rated number 1 in this Nation for State Parks. Cumberland Mountain State Park offers 2000 feet of elevation with panoramic breathtaking mountain views. Complete with Camping, Cabins, Picnic Pavilions, A Gift Shop and A Restaurant you are sure to find everything you need.

 The Cumberland Mountain State Park offers a wide variety of Planned Programs for all ages year round. With an Olympic size swimming pool all guest's can give way to a wonderful time in the water. The park's Amphitheatre is located behind the Restaurant along the bank of Byrd Lake and special activities and weekly programs is fun for all ages. Each Sunday morning a non-denominational worship service is offered for all park guest's.

For the avid Golfer there is a beautifully designed Jack Nicklaus 18-hole course that takes advantage of the elevation changes as well as natural flowing streams and clustered pines. The signature 7th hole incorporates another natural resource of the State and is layered in flagstone.

 Don't forget to bring your Hiking shoes. The park offers fourteen miles of hiking trails for those wishing to capture the beauty of the outdoors along our Cumberland Plateau.. Trail maps are available.

Enjoy a day on the 50-acre lake that offers some of the finest water recreation. From fishing boats to rowboats it's fun for all ages.

Crossville Tennessee, Where all good things come together !
