Cove Lake is an extension of the much larger Norris Reservoir, which extends across the lower 15 miles (24 km) of Cove Creek downstream from Caryville Dam. Cove Lake State Park was one of several state and local parks developed in the 1930s as part of the Norris Dam Project. The park includes a large campground, several small walking trails, and a wildlife observation area. A leg of the Cumberland Trail passes near the park's northern boundary, connecting the park to nearby mountaintops.

This park is so beautiful! We camped and enjoyed the atmosphere. Only 4 stars because I feel like some of the spots are WAY too close together for camping so choose wisely! However, the restaurant is yummy, easy out in for kayaking, and the trails are nice!
Great State Park. Lots of camp sites with water and electric. RV size didn't seem to be a problem. Quiet. We camped on the lake during the middle August. Easy access to I-75. We were pulling a 28ft trailer.
