David Crockett State Park

Open all year so call 931-903-2323 to ask your questions about the park from 8am to 4pm.

You can be king of the wild frontier when you come to this 1,319 acre park in Lawrenceburg Tennessee! This state park is named after the legend David Crockett! We know the myths of David Crockett from the cartoons and films about him but he was a real person who moved to Lawrence county during the year of its creation in 1817 and was very popular. Crockett started his political career in Lawrenceburg and this is why his statue is on the town square. He was instrumental as a commissioner and other positions until he would make the move to run for office. He had several mills up and down shoal creek until a flood came and wiped them all out so he moved to west Tennessee. He won several of his elections until his dispute with another Tennessean president Andrew Jackson cost him his election in 1835 and he went off to fight in the Alamo. The rest is history so come make David Crockett Park part of your history on your visit to Lawrence county!

Crockett Mills Restaurant inside Crockett Park

There are not very many state parks with a restaurant in them and the Crockett Mills restaurant is one of the best! Since Lawrenceburg has a lot of retirees that love southern cooking, you will find an active kitchen during week and a busy kitchen on Saturdays and Sundays. They used to have a buffet where you fix your own plate but since covid-19, the buffet is gone and you must order off the menu. This did make the team have to reevaluate their menu but today their menu is a great with the best variety than ever before. 

Crockett's Mill Restaurant is open Wednesday-Thursday-Friday from 11am-3pm for menu ordering and Saturday from 8am-3pm for *family style all you care to eat breakfast all day (no menu ordering) and Sunday from  8am-10am for a *family style all you care to eat breakfast and 11am-3pm *family style all you care to eat lunch! (no menu ordering) NO TO GO BOXES FOR ALL YOU CARE TO EAT!!!

*Family Style seating is when you get a plate of the same foods brought to your table to be passed around to who ever wants a serving. Like a plate of all chicken or a bowl of green beans members of the table divide. We suggest going as a family or group when going to Crockett's Mill Restaurant on all you care to eat weekends. 

Call 931-903-2323 or email Brittany.Purser@TN.Gov for more information. See the button links above for the official website and downloadable menu of Crockett's Mill!

Campground #1 - is open for rent from March 15th to November 31st along the shoal creek. They have 45 places available with 30 amp breakers and water hookups. Campground one also has public restrooms just for the campers on site and no parking for general park attendees.

Plus you also get public restrooms and showers inside this campground with its own playground that is not accessible to the general park attendees. 

Campers must keep to a 3pm check in and a 12 noon check out so that as many campers can comfortably reside in the park with the same level of experience as other campers. Stay limit is two weeks during peak season from March - November 31st and 28 days during the off season December to February 28th. There is also a firewood policy at this webpage here you need to see along with more information.

The David Crockett Park Museum, Bird Aviary and trails 

Education is important to those managing the park today. Having a museum dedicated to David Crockett and the longhunter lifestyle is a great addition to understanding the type of person David Crockett was. They made a movie and cartoon series about him being the king of the wild frontier! His museum has representations about the kind of life he lived inside. The y have a short video and self guided tour you can take. Outside of the museum is the bird aviary with owls and hawks inside the cages. These birds are injured and taken to these cages until they can be released into the wild.  There is a walking trail that starts at the museum. This trail goes to the amphitheatre and pine forest. See the photos below so you can learn more about these sections of the park!

Amenities and other events inside the park

There is a lot of things to do inside the park. Unfortunately they are taking out the swimming pool and putting in a splash pad. There are plenty of hiking trails and walking paths along the woods that weave around mature hardwoods and evergreen pines that make for a dark forest. The kids love the multiple playground areas, basketball courts, and tennis area. Disc golf is free at scout park that hold an 18 hole disc golf course that borders the park. There are two waterfalls in the park within walking distance of the road. We locals just call them the big and little waterfalls because one is clearly bigger and father than the other. The smaller falls are what the Tennessee state uses as the photo that shows David Crockett Park. Below are video showing the water sports section of Lindsey Lake!

There are many things to do at the David Crockett Park Events! The glow in the dark 5k and other running related events and kids entertainment. There are many groups that meet to walk the trails or workout on the equipment at the parking area of the walking trail entrance. The David Crockett Park Facebook page is where you will see these events and special days for the park!

Historical Events happening at David Crockett Park

David Crockett State Park holds a treasure that few have ever seen. There is a certified section of the Bell route Trail of Tears that is still dirt. During the 1838 removal of the Native Peoples, the roads were dirt and became the paved roads later when the car was invented since many of these roads were major routes of travel. Today you can take off your shoes and walk where the natives walked on the very road! Beneath the layers of forest settlement is the footprints of sadness where the 5 tribes were marched to Oklahoma reservations. Read all about the history along the way on the trail! Mr. Ardeen Walters found the trail while researching a related topic. There are many historical things inside the park you will want to see!

Mike has loved this park since 1986 when park ranger Mr. Henry Phillips let visitors in at night to see Halley's Comet at Lindsey Lake. Today the park has been modernized but still has its charm. There has been a land donation recently that would make the boundaries larger so we believe the park will be even better as time goes on.
