We are looking forward to another great year here at Cotten’s Marina!



Cotten’s Marina is a family owned business open for over 20 years, and located on the Great Falls Lake. The Caney Fork, Rocky and Collins Rivers offer 35-40 miles of navigable waterway for cruising, fishing, relaxing, and swimming. Cotten’s Marina is within a stone’s throw of “Rock Island” which is the nearest center landmark in Tennessee, hence the name of Rock Island State Park just down the road.

Fishermen love to fish the waterways for species such as Kentucky Largemouth Bass, Black and White Crappie, Walleye, Muskellunge, Bluegills, and Catfish. This is true outdoor river living, where residents love to enjoy the beauty and nature all around. Cotten’s Marina is the only full-service marina and boat storage on the Great Falls Lake. We also offer pontoon and fishing boat rentals.

We serve delicious cheeseburgers, sandwiches, and many people’s favorite-chicken quesadillas. We are open for lunch Saturday and Sunday 11am-5pm. We have amazing patio river dining with beautiful flowers and plants adorning the deck, and some of the tables shaded by big sun umbrellas. So come on by, enjoy a burger, fries, and a cold drink and view the historic railroad bridge that is still in operation today.

Rock Island is one of Tennessee’s best kept secrets with camping, hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, picnicking, kayaking, rock climbing and so much more.
