Montgomery Bell State Park is a Tennessee state park in Burns, Tennessee, United States. The park covers 3,782 acres (1,531 ha) and its official elevation is 758 feet (231 m).

The park is open for year-round recreation including boating, hiking, camping, fishing and golf. Montgomery Bell State Park was built during the Great Depression by members of the Works Progress Administration and Civilian Conservation Corps as Montgomery Bell Recreational Demonstration Area.

Beautifully maintained park. Visited late August 2019. Lots of wildlife to see. We enjoyed pedal boating on the lake so much we made the drive from Nashville twice in one week! A separate company maintains the pedal and paddle boats. I appreciated the very quick text reply to my issue with unlocking the boat. It was a beautiful experience.
This park is absolutely stunning. Signs and maps were easy to follow. I recommend grabbing one and keeping it in your arsenal for every visit so you do not get lost or turned around. Trails were clean and well maintained. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience.
