David Crockett birthplace
David Crockett is a small State Park, however there is a lot of attention to detail put into this historical area. The drive in follows the TN “Sunnyside Early Country Trail” through picturesque farmland with mountains in the near distance. Do your shopping before arrival, there’s nothing close to the park. Definitely a good park for young families, enough stuff to explore and things to do without a lot of traffic. You can easily hike all the trails in a day. The story book trail is short but fun. The area offers an amphitheater, swimming pool, playground, shelters, archery range, boat ramp and fishing right by the campground. Then there’s the Homestead to wander through and learn about. Mostly flat with a few easy climbs and rolling meadows.
The campground is surprisingly large, level sites, that are close together, not much room for toys. A small tent area that is adjacent to one of the shelters, which works well for meal prep if it’s not reserved. The showerhouse is at the front of the campground easy walking distance from the tent area and well maintained . There’s a store in the campground with attached pavilion.
Good for relaxed recreation time.
