LONG BRANCH, TN
Status: Open through Sun Oct 20 2013 Season Dates
OverviewLong Branch Campground is located below Center Hill Dam on the scenic Caney Fork River in central Tennessee's Highland Rim.
Above the dam, the lake stretches 64 miles up the river, where visitors come to enjoy boating, fishing and water sports. The 415 miles of forested shoreline provide excellent hiking, hunting and camping opportunities.
Long Branch is surrounded by the lush mixed hardwood forests of the hilly Highland Rim region. Whitetail deer, wild turkey, squirrels and rabbits roam the wooded hills in the area.
Fishermen come to Long Branch to experience trophy trout fishing on the river, which is stocked with rainbow and brown trout. Fly fishers and spin fishers alike enjoy this beautiful river and its abundant fish.
The campground offers 60 campsites with electric hookups. A large, day-use group picnic shelter is also available, with water and 100-amp electric hookups.
Edgar Evins State Park sits on the lake shore about 10 minutes from Floating Mill. An observation tower at the Visitor Center offers a spectacular view of Center Hill Lake and the surrounding hillsides.
