Overview

Overview

Hurricane Bridge Recreation Area is located on the shores of the scenic Center Hill Lake on central Tennessee's Highland Rim.

The lake stretches 64 miles up the Caney Fork River, where visitors come to enjoy boating, fishing and water sports. The 415 miles of forested shoreline provide excellent hiking, hunting and camping opportunities.

Natural Features:

Center Hill Lake is surrounded by lush mixed hardwood forests in the hilly Highland Rim region. Whitetail deer, wild turkey, squirrels and rabbits roam the wooded hills around the lake.

Hurricane Bridge is located on a peninsula, providing sweeping lake views on three sides of the picnic area.

Recreation:

Boating, water skiing, canoeing and fishing are popular activities on the water.

Anglers will find bream, walleye, smallmouth bass, crappie, catfish and white bass. Below the dam, the Caney Fork River is one of the most productive trout fisheries in the state.

Nine miles of hiking trails meander around the lake. The Lost Springs Trail loops for two miles above Hurricane Marina and Floating Mill Campground.

Facilities:

This large day-use picnic shelter can accommodate up to 125 guests. Water and 15-amp electric hookups are provided, as are flush toilets and drinking water. Two boat ramps and a dock are located on-site.

Nearby Attractions:

Edgar Evins State Park, about 20 minutes from Hurricane Bridge, sits on the shores of the lake. An observation tower at the Visitor Center offers a spectacular view of Center Hill Lake and the surrounding hillsides.

Burgess Falls State Park is a 30 minute drive from the campground. Here, the Falling Water River drops approximately 250 feet, creating numerous breathtaking waterfalls. Hiking trails and overlooks help visitors enjoy the scenery. The large Native Butterfly Garden is a popular attraction within the park.
