The scenic beauty of this wooded park is dominated by the Great Falls of the Caney Fork River – an imposing limestone gorge (called a gulf in southern culture). It provides scenic overlooks, waterfalls and deep pools for fishing, rock-hopping and exploring. Located at the confluence of the Collins and Caney Fork Rivers, this 883-acre park has a natural sand beach on Center Hill Resevoir. Tours of nearby Big Bone Cave are available by advance appointment. Historic features of the park include a 19th century textile mill and one of Tennessee’s early hydroelectric plants
