My husband and I visited this state park for the first time this past weekend. Wow! We loved it! We are already planning another trip to the Nashville area to hike more of the trails at this park. We arrived early in the afternoon and hiked the Day Loop and part of the Volunteer Trail. It was a beautiful well marked scenic trail. The bluffs overlooking J Percy Priest Lake were a real treat. After our hike, we visited the park’s visitors center. The restrooms at the center were clean and the little gift shop was nice too. And the center was well stocked with trail maps and brochures.

Website claims dogs can go on the 4 mile trail. However, signs at the park say otherwise. So we did the shoreline trail where he was allowed. Very nice of the boy scouts to have cleared a nice path with tree markings for walkers.

I’ve been to Long Hunter lots of times and there is still more to discover. Whether you want a workout kind of hike or a stroll with kids in strollers, you will find it here. Also boats to rent and so much more! Clean bathrooms are a plus! ENJOY!

This is a nice park for getting out in nature. Usually we just go to the boat ramp to meet friends. It is easy in and out with plenty of parking and dock space from which to load your boat. This park has many walking trails and areas for swimming. The grounds are well kept although I think they could use a few more trash cans around. Special events include night hikes, nature walks and the annual Pow Wow.

We went here for a Pow Wow. The park is beautiful and there is a huge lake as well. Nice place to take a walk and go exploring down the trails.

I accidentally ended up here, but it was lovely. We walked around and found the beaches and the trails. It’s very nice, but it is a bit tedious to get to places in the park, since the only way to get some places (besides boat) is to do a circle around the park. Other than that, it was a joy!

We went here on a cold misty day in December. There was hardly anyone there. The lake seemed low and the trails were deserted. It's a good place to go to get away from it all. Seemed kind of dreary on the day we went. Skip it unless you have nothing else to do.

Thanks for visiting. It seems as though a busier time of your would better meet your expectations. We hope you'll visit us again in the spring or summer if you enjoy more activity at the park.
