The Cedars of Lebanon State Park is located 36 miles east of downtown Nashville, in the small town of Lebanon, Tennessee. The 900 acres became a state park in 1955, a national natural landmark in 1973 and in 1995 several building in the state park were placed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
The State Park features eight miles of hiking trails, two of which are half mile toddler friendly hikes that cross through multiple cedar glades that give the park its name. Cedars of Lebanon is also home to 18 caves, Jackson Cave is the most well-known with a 30 feet wide entrance that is located near several picnic shelters.
If you are wanting to camp in the park during the spring and summer it is recommended that you book a camp site a few months in advance to be guaranteed a spot. With only 117 camping sites and 9 cabins the park stays filled up during camping season.
