Tims Ford State Park offers a 52-site campground, with water, 30 amp electric service, picnic table, and fire ring with grill at each site, and a dumping station available at the entrance to the campground.
The campground can accommodate RVs up to 40 feet in length on several sites and are able to accommodate both RVs and tents. The campsites are limited to 6 people per site, and one RV and one tent, or two tents per site. Two of the campsites are ADA compliant and are set aside for that reason. Two centrally located bathhouses provide hot showers and bathrooms.
A playground is located within the campground, and several other playgrounds are located throughout the park.
Campsites are available year-round and the maximum stay is two weeks.
New Firewood Policy – Effective June 1, 2016 - DON’T MOVE FIREWOOD
In order to protect our forests and trees from invasive insects and diseases, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Please refrain from bringing untreated wood into the park.
Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase from concessioners in many of the campgrounds as well as from vendors in the communities around the park. Certified heat-treated firewood is clearly marked with a state or federal seal.
The Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive pests are a growing threat to the forests of Tennessee and the surrounding region.
