  • Camping at Defenders' Retreat

Campers are within minutes of amazing hiking at Cummins Falls State Park and Burgess Falls State Park and Natural Area. We are also ideally located close to wineries, distilleries and an abundance of wildlife. An outdoor concert stage is coming soon for weekend concerts on the property.


Our campground is just 15 miles from Cookeville, TN and a 5-minute drive to Center Hill Lake and Hurricane Marina where you can rent pontoon boats. We're also just a 12-minute drive from Edgar Evins State Park where you'll find 3 boat launches on Center Hill Lake and 11 miles of hiking trails. Nearby outfitter Canoe the Caney offers kayak and canoe rentals and is a Trip Advisor Travelers Choice Award Winner. The combined offerings on our property and within a very short drive make this the perfect campsite for those who like to canoe, kayak, hike, fish, boat, and water ski.


A family restaurant, The Rose Garden Restaurant, and a gas station are conveniently located within a mile of our farm.


Our luxury campsites sleep up to 6 campers - two on the Queen bed in the 10 x 12 platform safari tent and up to 4 additional campers in a pop-up tent that can be provided free upon request.  Each luxury campsite comes with a picnic table, fire pit, and Adirondack chairs where you can kick back and take in the stars at night. Our campsite is also pet-friendly with a small pet fee.


If you need basic provisions during your stay, there is a Dollar General store 1 mile from the property.


We are a veteran-owned and operated business and we hope you find this property as special as we do.
