There is an 18 hole disc golf course inside the park that is free to the public. With level terrain and well defined fairways, this is one of the best disc golf courses in Tennessee.

Swimming

The pool at Henry Horton State Park will remain closed for the 2021 summer season, in the interest of public health and staff safety. Our park remains open and is still a great place for you to enjoy water-based recreation this summer. Find other activities at the park here.

Trap and Skeet

The Henry Horton Trap and Skeet Range is one of the finest in the state and offers Skeet, Trap, Wobble Trap, and Five Stand Shooting.

Golfing

The Buford Ellington championship golf course at Henry Horton State Park measures 5,625 yards from the Forward tees and 7,020 yards from the Championship tees. This challenging course is heavily treed with hardwoods and contains 37 bunkers. Although the length may scare some golfers away, the fairways are generous in width and the greens larger than average.

Hiking

With over 10 miles of hiking, Henry Horton State Park is a wonderful place to get outside and into nature. From deep and cool sinkholes to dry and hot cedar glades, from riverbank ecology to areas with deep cultural history, the trials here are unique, diverse and rewarding around every bend.

Fishing

The Duck River provides catches of Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Redeye, and catfish. Fishing can be very good from the banks as well as by small boats. Some areas provide excellent opportunities for flyfishing.

Birding

Birding is exceptional for residents such as Carolina chickadee and tufted titmouse, pileated and red-bellied woodpeckers and migrating warblers. Over 70 species of birds have been observed throughout the year. For more park and nearby birding locations, view flyer.
