I went to college in Chattanooga back in the '80s and used to come here often just to relax and get away. It's so beautiful right on Chickamauga Lake. The facilities are weathered but the park itself is pretty much the same. There's a nice pier, picnic pavilions, and bathroom facilities. Quiet and serene. Great place for skipping rocks. I'm...

I love how this park is off on it's own. I came by it on accident and so glad I did. Not many people there which is perfect! Very pretty environment and scenery. I enjoyed my time there very much and plan to return soon.

Just a quick stay. Only a few miles from Harrison Bay State Park. Right on the lake with beautiful views of the lake. Covers docks to walk on or fish from. No camping at this park. Just a nice little park to spend a few hours.

My kids love going to the park to swim, fish, and canoe. Our family visits the park at least twice a month. Nice trails too!

Perhaps because it does not have camping or RV facilities, this park seems both more laid-back friendly and contemplative than most rural public parks I've visited. There are always welcoming folks fishing off the "purpose-built" pier, but this large park offers a lot of solitude and calming water views. Despite their age, the bathroom facilities have always been immaculate on... More

I walk my dog in this park . It is large and offers several venues. There is a boat dock which we use and marina and a very good restaurant. There is a first class golf course close, fishing and campsites are available.

Nice clean state park. Always see lots of people fishing and picnicking. Nice playground areas for the kids to play on and adequate bathroom facilities. Also has camping areas and cabins up the hill and around the corner from the fishing/picnicking area. The area appears to have been a reef millions of years ago and the rock and geological features... More

BT Washington SP is located in Chattanooga TN on Chickamauga Lake. This park has day-use facilities (picnics/recreation fields/docks) and group camp facilities. Attention depression era history buffs, if you are interested in the African American involvement in the CCC, you might find some pretty interesting tidbits in the office/visitors center. The park is in close proximity to all the Chattanooga... More
