Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park is 1,121 acres of rustic Americana. The birthplace of one of our nation's most treasured national figures, this furbulous park offers many recreational opportunities year round. Best of all, the park welcomes your pup to join you!
Camping is surely pupular here, and with almost 90 campsites, there's something for every taste. Here you'll find RV sites, sites with electricity and water, and primitive sites to satisfy those who truly want to get away from it all. Located right next to the Nolichucky River, the campground also houses a pool, playground and picnic area just for campers. Bathrooms and free showers are located centrally, so every site is within walking distance of these amenities. While entrance to the park is free, fees do apply for campsites.
If you are thinking more of a day adventure, you can do some fishing in the river with your pup by your side. State fishing licenses are required before you try your luck, so make sure yours is up to date before you come. If you've come to Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park with a kayak or canoe, you'll be able to get it out onto the Nolichuckey River from a few different areas. For larger watercraft, there's a concrete boat launch located at the southern end of the park right next to Big Limestone Creek. Swimming is not permitted at any of these bodies of water, at any time. Hikers will love the three short trails that range from easy to moderate that get them right in the middle of it all.
Whatever you decide to do at this pawrific outdoor woofderland, be sure to keep your dog leashed at all times. Bring all the essentials, such as drinking water to share with your pup, and clean-up bags. Always stoop and scoop whatever your dog leaves behind.
For a furrific time in Tennessee's great outdoors, bring your pup on an adventure in the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park!
