Fishing Guide

This beautiful site covers nearly 11,000 acres on the Cumberland Plateau of  north-central Tennessee. This quaint and rustic park is noted for its outstanding scenery, spring wildflowers, fossils and other natural  diversity. The park takes its name from the "Standing Stone," an eight-foot tall rock standing upright on a  sandstone ledge, which was supposedly used as a boundary line between two separate Indian nations. When the rock fell, the Indians placed a portion of it upon an improvised monument to preserve it. The stone is still preserved in Monterey,  Tennessee.

Standing Stone State Park is located on State Hwy. 52 between Livingston and Celina.




The park has (15) rustic cabins, (3) three-bedroom timber lodges, and (4) AAA cabins. Each is fully equipped for housekeeping, including linens, appliances, and cooking  and serving utensils.  Reservations should be made through the park office.


Standing Stone has 35 tent and trailer sites, each equipped with a table, grill, and water  and electrical hookups. Two bathhouses provide hot showers, commodes,  and lavatories. There is a dump station for self-contained trailer rigs. Sites are available only on a first-come, first-served basis, and the maximum stay limit is two weeks.  

Group Lodges

The park has four group lodges, all completely equipped for housekeeping and food preparation. Two lodges will accommodate 16, one accommodates 12, and Overton Lodge will accommodate 50. Reservations are necessary.  




Seven picnic shelters, as well as numerous individual tables and grills, are available to picnickers. Water fountains and restrooms  are located nearby.



Year-round fishing on the lovely 69-acre Standing Stone Lake is a popular activity, with nice strings of Bass and blue gill not uncommon. A valid Tennessee fishing license is  required for persons over 16. Rowboats are available for rent. No privately owned boats or motors are permitted on the lake. In addition, Dale Hollow Lake is only five  miles from the park, and offers some of the finest fishing and water recreation in the state.

The Standing Stone swimming pool is open during the summer, and lifeguards are on duty during swimming hours. The pool includes a bathhouse and concession stand.

Ten miles of hiking trails wind through the wilds of Standing Stone. Hikers will observe much diversity in plant and animal life from the trails.

The park also offers recreational activities such as badminton, tennis, horseshoes, croquet, ball fields, volleyball, basketball and more. A recreation building, open  during the summer months, provides recreation equipment at no charge to park visitors.
