Cumberland Mountains State Park Crossville, TN

Here we are in one of our favorite sites at Cumberland Mountain State Park near Crossville, TN. We stayed here four nights before heading farther east to the Smokies. There are alot of things to see and do in the park and surrounding area. This park is a great place to bring kids in the summer as there is a swimming pool, tennis courts, ball field, pond with canoe and paddle boat rentals and several playgrounds. We enjoyed just kicking back and watching all the different birds at our feeders.

Construction on this bridge and dam in the park began in 1935 and was completed in 1938.

A view of the park restaurant which overlooks the pond and bridge. They serve lunch and dinner buffets seven days a week. We ate there several times and the food was always really good, especially the ribs and BBQ pulled pork.

The pond which is home to several dozen Canadian Geese.
