The campground is pretty nice but there just isn't much to see or do there. The "fort" isn't a fort at all but an old Indian mound, or ceremonial ground, or something else unknown. What it really is is a low wall of dirt, so low that you would not normally notice it. We didn't see any other hiking trails and no bike trails at all. This place is good for an overnight stay but nothing more.
Great for people who just want to get out in the woods and camp. There's only one way in and out of the campground and you have to cross a short bridge. They have 2 walking trails that begin at the check in station and also some longer walking trails starting at the museum. Its not unusual to see deer walking through the campground early morning and early evening. You get to see the squirrels play almost all day.
This is a small State park campground. The park is a historical archeological park so there are some historic sites. There is not a lot of entertainment amenities that some other TN State parks have. The camping spaces are paved and mostly level. There is a lot of area between the spaces and it is heavily wooded. If you like satellite TV your choices may be limited due to the trees. One way in and one way out. It’s quiet. Every close to I-24 exit 110. The bath house is clean. This is a not-well-known gem in the TN State park system if you want to get away.
Beautiful waterfalls all through this park but you have to be willing to hike a little. There are several trails from the camp ground or from the museum, and they are all beautiful to see the falls. The nature trail from the camp ground check in station is about a mile loop and about half way you hit the river and can hike down to Get a better glimpse and different perspective of the Blue Hole falls. Camp site are large and I could have backed my 40 ft RV into the majority of them. Lots of space between sites. Each had a fire pit, picnic table and a BBQ grill. Really quiet on a weeknight. Flowers were just starting to bud and the trees were near ready to burst into bloom. A hidden gem if you like to hike like we do. Loved the sound of the waterfalls. We hiked the red, yellow, white and green trails and found them all to have nice views of varying falls on the Big Duck and Little Duck rivers.
Pulled in and oarked in a spot by other people. It was quick and we had dinner and watching a movie when a park Ranger knocked on the door. Freaked at first but then felt safe knowing he was around. Great sleep but it is $27. For a night not $20. But it was fine. Nice park
Just off of the highway, it was an easy in and out quick night. I wish we had a little time to explore. It was quiet and the park ranger was friendly.
