Overview

Overview

Defeated Creek Park Campground sits along the banks of Cordell Hull Lake on the Cumberland River System, just seven miles from Carthage, Tennessee.

The lake was named after Cordell Hull, a politician that was born in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains. Hull is best known for being the longest running secretary of state in American history, serving for 11 years.Click here for a virtual tour of the Cordell Hull Lake facilities.

Natural Features:

Cordell Hull Lake is situated among rolling hills covered in a mix of shady maple, hickory, oak, beech and chestnut trees. Summer temperatures range from the 60s to the 90s.

Wildlife is abundant around the lake. Whitetail deer, wild turkeys, quail, squirrels, rabbits and a wide variety of waterfowl are commonly seen throughout the area.

Recreation:

The 12,000-acre lake stretches 72 miles upstream and boasts 381 miles of shoreline, offering countless recreational activities for visitors.

Anglers enjoy fishing for white bass, rockfish, largemouth bass, catfish, shad and crappie.

Boating, sailing, water skiing and jet skiing are popular activities on the water, and boat ramps and a marina provide easy lake access.

Miles of hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking trails surround the lake. The 6-mile Bearwaller Gap Trail has a trailhead within the campground. Other trails in the area include the Turkey Creek Nature Trail and Bear Wheels Trail.

Facilities:

The campground offers 155 sites for tents and RVs, all with electric hookups. Two large group day-use shelters are also available, both with water and electric hookups.

A boat ramp, playground, beach, and tennis and volleyball courts are all provided, making the area perfect for families or larger parties. A marina is located adjacent to the campground.
