Tennessee State Parks

Henry Horton State Park

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, the longest stretch of free flowing river in Tennessee. Remnants of a mill and bridge operated and used by Horton’s spouse’s family for over a century may be seen today on the Wilhoite Mill Trail.

The park offers several lodging options, including an inn, eight cabins, 72 campsites and primitive campsites. There is also a group campsite available. The inn features a restaurant that is open seven days a week. 

The Buford Ellington championship golf course at Henry Horton State Park is one of the finest courses in the state of Tennessee. This challenging course is 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. A valid hunter education card required for shooters under the age of 18.
