About the Park: Less than an hour from Nashville, Henry Horton State Park sits next to the Duck River, which doubles as one of the world's most diverse ecosystems. You can sign-up for a guided kayak float on the park's event calendar. You can also set out in your own paddle craft or cast a line off the banks. With forests, sinkholes, cedar glades, and even wetlands to explore, there's always something new to be seen along the hiking trails. Adults and kids alike will find something to love at the park. The park has several playgrounds where kids can play on natural surfaces or in splash fountains. The park’s newest playground was designed with ADA access in mind; ensuring a play experience for kids of all abilities. The park also offers disc golf, skeet shooting, and an 18-hole golf course.

Camping: No matter your preferred style of camping, you'll find it at Henry Horton State Park. The park offers RV, tent, hammock, backcountry sites. A large group tent campsite is also available. The RV campsites can also be booked by tent campers and are equipped with water and electric hookups, while the tent-only sites do not offer hookups. The hammock campground offers a unique experience with the ideal trees to set up your home for the night. If you're looking for something a little more adventurous, the backcountry sites are only a 1.5-mile hike in, perfect for beginners. All campsites except for backcountry sites come with a grill, picnic table, and fire ring. Two bathhouses are available seasonally and one remains open during the winter to accommodate tents and small campers without self-contained facilities. 

Campsites are limited to six people and two vehicles maximum. Only two tents or an RV and one tent allowed on campsites.

The newly renovated camp store sells basic camping supplies, snack and drinks as well as gift items such as t-shirts, hats and toys. We recently added a new coffee and seating area as well as expanding our inventory. Come out and see us!
