With more caves, waterfalls, and scenic overlooks per square mile than anywhere else in the United States, Sparta TN is a great Adventure Tourism destination. We have over 100 miles of paddleable water including world-class whitewater and serene flat water. We are minutes to multiple hiking trails which range from easy to strenuous.
We are bordered to the north by the Falling Water River, to the South lies the Caney Fork River. To the west we have over 40 miles of shoreline on Center Hill Lake which offers great boating, fishing and skiing. And to the east we are bordered by the Cumberland Plateau and Bridgestone Centennial Wilderness Area which offers excellent hunting and hiking opportunities. Sparta and White County are bisected by the Calfkiller River which runs through the center of town and offers yet another place to paddle and fish.
Sparta is a GIG-certified community that has attracted hundreds of remote workers to relocate from across the US. Sparta is less than 90 minutes from Nashville, Knoxville, or Chattanooga and is known as both “The Land of Falling Water” and “Bluegrass USA”. In addition to our outdoors, you will appreciate our arts, agritourism, restaurants, festivals and more.
