We just got back from a week-long trip to Tims Ford State Park in Middle Tennessee. We picked what must have been the hottest week of the year to go, but we had a great time in spite of the sweltering heat. They call it a "rustic" park, but I'm not sure what that means unless it means they don't have a lodge and restaurant on site. The cabin was quite comfortable:
It was the noisiest state park we've ever stayed in, with boaters settling in off the bank behind our cabin with loud music playing on three different days and the sounds along the trails of mowing and traffic. That said, it was a lovely park with nicely sited lake-side cabins and woodland trails.
Here's the view from the cabin:

There's a bird rehab facility next to it:
I won't put all my trail photos in this post, but there's a sweet lake-front trail between the cabins and the marina:
