Henry Horton State Park was constructed in the 1960s on the estate of the former governor of Tennessee, Henry Horton. The park is located on the shores of the historic Duck River, one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Remnants of a mill and bridge operated and used by the family of Horton’s spouse for over a century may be seen today on the Wilhoite Mill Trail.
The park offers several lodging options, including an inn, eight cabins, 56 RV campsites, 10 tent campsites, nine primitive campsites and three backcountry campsites. There are also three group campsites available. The inn features The Governor's Table Restaurant, open seven days a week.
The Buford Ellington championship golf course at Henry Horton State Park is a challenging course, heavily treed with hardwoods and contains 37 bunkers.
Duck River anglers can catch largemouth and smallmouth and red-eye bass and catfish, among many other species.
The Henry Horton Trap and Skeet Range includes five skeet fields, two trap fields and a lodge building with concessions. Gun rental and ammo are available. A picnic shelter is available for large shoots or related gatherings. No pullers provided. Must be 18 years of age or youth sportsman.

These maps use your GPS, not your cell signal, so they work even when you do not have service. Here is what you need to access our maps:
