Center Hill Lake

Welcome to Center Hill Lake

The Nashville District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers welcomes you to Center Hill Lake.  The lake provides varied outdoor recreation opportunities for millions of visitors each year.  Because of the temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, visitors have numerous activities to choose from including fishing, hunting, camping, picnicking, boating, canoeing, hiking, and many others.  Center Hill belongs to you.  Treat our lake and surrounding area with respect by keeping it clean and attractive.  Enjoy yourself, have a safe visit, and come again.  The Center Hill Lake Information Center located at the Resource Manager’s Office offers the visitor a pictorial history of the construction of the dam and a wildlife exhibit featuring many of the birds and animals which are found in the area.
