Cookeville is located approximately 80 miles east of Nashville and 100 miles west of Knoxville on Interstate 40. Chattanooga is approximately 90 miles to the south on Appalachian Corridor J, or Tennessee Highway 111.
Located on the first tier of the Cumberland Plateau, Cookeville's elevation is a few hundred feet higher than either Nashville or Knoxville. As a result, temperatures and humidity levels are generally slightly lower in Cookeville than in either the Nashville Basin or in the Tennessee Valley.
Three man-made lakes maintained by the Corps of Engineers are located near Cookeville, created to help flood control in the narrow valleys of the Cumberland Plateau: Center Hill Lake, Cordell Hull Lake, and Dale Hollow Lake.
