About The Park: David Crockett was a pioneer, soldier, politician and industrialist. He was born near the little town of Limestone in northeast Tennessee in 1786. In 1817, he moved to Lawrence County and served as a justice of the peace, a colonel of the militia and as a state representative. Along the banks of Shoal Creek, in what is now his namesake park, he established a diversified industry consisting of a powdermill, a gristmill and a distillery. All three operations were washed away in a flood in September 1821. Financial difficulties from this loss caused Crockett to move to West Tennessee where he was elected to Congress. While in Washington, he fought for his people’s right to keep land they had settled on in the new frontier of West Tennessee. Crockett died at the Alamo Mission in March of 1836 while aiding the Texans in their fight for independence from Mexico. The 1,319-acre park has a museum, staffed during the summer months, with exhibits depicting Crockett’s life here and a water-powered grist mill.

This is a really cool, educational, fun state park. Most items, activities, exhibits are within walking distance ... the campground is to the right of the log cabin there in the 1st picture. The stone circle and republica (his original home is sadly gone, apparently the world is full of people who don't get why historical items, homes, lighthouses, covered bridges, buildings, are important to this country and our background of historical events and time and deserve to keep in their best condition and not to be touched by any one under any circumstance.) of the cabin are a bit farther back ... but you still could take a nice leisurely walk to there. We had some rain and sunshine during our stay. I think we were there 5 or was it 4 days? It was fun being there with all of our trailer buddies and learning about some David Cockett history. One evening they had a singing of historical or that era of Davey Cockett songs .. I have tried to get more info on it ...apparently men (and these days ladies) what the path to

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece.
