About the Park

Big Hill Pond State Park is located in the southwestern part of McNairy County and encompasses 4,138 acres of timberland and hard wood bottomland. Cypress Creek and Tuscumbia River border the property. The flood plain, adjacent to the river and creek contains small oxbows and swampy areas which are desirable habitat for waterfowl, wildlife and fish. 

Park highlights include the 70 foot observation tower that offers panoramic views of Travis McNatt Lake, and the boardwalk that wends through Dismal Swamp. Guests visiting Big Hill Pond State Park enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and paddling in the summer. The park is home to thirty miles of overnight and day use trails with four backpack trail shelters.
