Cedars of Lebanon State Park

328 Cedar Forest Rd

Cedars of Lebanon State Park is located in Wilson County and is part of the Cedars of Lebanon State Forest. The park is named for Eastern Red Cedar trees found throughout the area. The trees reminded early American settlers of the famed Biblical cedar forests that thrived across Mount Lebanon in what is now the Mediterranean area.  Cedars of Lebanon became a state park in 1955.

Cedars of Lebanon State Park is known for its equestrian access. The Stables at Cedars of Lebanon is a leased operation that provides guided trail rides, overnight boarding and barn birthday parties. The 2.5 mile guided trail ride through the park takes approx. 40-50 minutes to complete. Rental horses are available or you may bring your own horse.

The 900 acre park has 117 campsites equipped with picnic tables and grills, electric and water hookups. There are an additional 30 tent and pop-up campsites available. A modern group lodge, open year-round for organized groups, has a total sleeping capacity of 80 people.

I recently spent a weekday at the park, not as a camper but just for the trails. The park is dog friendly as long as the animal is well behaved and kept on a leash. I frequently take my dog on hikes, so I appreciate this. The park on the surface is lovely; and if you're staying there as a camper, it appears there is plenty to do. My main experience, however, was with the trails, and I give them a thumbs up. I took the Cedar Forest Trail which is just under 2 miles long and a relatively easy hike. The landscape is beautiful --thick forest, cedar glades and limestone. I didn't see any wildlife, but that may have been due to the time of day. We also took the Limestone Sink trail which is short, just under a half mile, but interesting. Lots of limestone features and the oak tree gall. Skip the self-guided tour though--very few markers still exist that I could see. The one negative about the park is there seemed to be a lot of traffic not complying with the 15 mile per hour speed limit. All in all a good experience and I recommend a visit.

This is a very nice park to stay and camp at. We've camped here a few times. Each time it has been a pleasurable experience. We have a 32 ft. RV and pull a Jeep. We've had no problems with the pull through sites. They are nice and level. Nice picnic table and fire pit/grill. We had electricity and water hookups. The dump station is easy to get in and out of. We walked Campgrounds 2 and 3. A lot of new timbers, blacktop and fire rings/grills in. These are more back in sites but we would not have problems with accommodating our rig and jeep. Nice check in process. Can purchase firewood but unsure of the price. LOTS of cedar trees. Very nicely decorated with cedar rails. This park could possibly be used for other venues. I thought I saw a hall there. There was a nice playground for kids and several picnic areas. Saw a school bus there, not sure if they give educational presentations or not. Also saw a nice cabin to rent on the way out? We plan on stopping here every time we are this way.

The park is okay but not great, at least to me. I went on 3 hikes on three different trails which included the cedar glades trail, limestones sink trail, and part of the hidden spring trail. I was not overly impressed by what i saw on these trails. The park has at least two nice small gift shops and a visitor center. The park is free to enter which i appreciated. Visit this park if you want to enjoy a nice time in nature but don't expect too much.

Love this park. It's huge and about half an hour outside of Nashville. We go for the disc golf course, but they have cabins, campsites, trails, grilling areas, and horse stables. The course could use some better signs as far as pin/baskets go, but it's still worth the visit. Lots of cover for hot summer days and also, a pool.
