This is a beautiful and multi-faceted park on the outskirts of town. It was the site of a mill operation owned by Crockett, although the only history of the site is in a good museum near the falls and a reconstructed water wheel. There are trails and opportunities for water recreation in a lake and on Shoal Creek. The restaurant was a particularly pleasant surprise with a great family-style menu at an affordable price. The swimming pool is closed.

We came upon David Crockett State Park while traveling through TN with a short stay at Natchez Trace RV Campground. It is a beautiful state park with a very pretty campground. We learned a whole lot about "Davey" Crockett that we never knew and thoroughly enjoyed the park's museum. It's a very lush and pretty state park. We liked also that the park had a nature center with some rescued and rehabilitated birds there that were sadly unable to be released again, but the state park is housing and taking care of them. If you're in the area, it's worth stopping by. P.S. We learned he was a Congressman at one time and that "Davey" Crockett never went by Davey; thus the name David Crockett State Park.

We enjoyed all parts of this state park. Its well kept and there's lots to do. Crockett Falls is beautiful even though it's not very high. It's a great place to get your feet wet and probably do a little swimming in summer. We were there in the fall and it was really pretty. There are plenty of places to hike. The swimming pool is huge. We also enjoyed reading about the life of David Crockett at the museum. The lake is pretty, but not very big. I wish we could've tried the restaurant. Looks pretty from the outside and I've heard it's quite good. We'll try to go back in the summer to take advantage of more activities.

Treat guests with respect and courtesy.
Check in is 3 PM and checkout is 12 PM
Park grounds are beautiful and clean. Bath facilities were well kept. Everyone that I spoke with agreed it is a nice park to visit or camp but had the same experience with management and park host.
Management had a very unique and unforgiving approach for check in as they would not allow new arriving campers near the campsites until ten minutes before check in time of three pm. I witnessed the camp hostess chasing and yelling at one camper, who was already a guest from the night before extending his stay, and made him go to the restaurant instead of letting him move down 2 spots to an open spot that he paid for. There was no excuse for the behavior, there was no maintenance going on and no hustle and bustle going on to get sites ready for the next wave of happy campers. Some of us are on the road for hours getting to the camp ground looking to get settled in and relax. Our group stays at many of the Tennessee state parks as often as possible never ever have we received such treatment. Most parks are inviting and welcoming not this one.
Sorry for the rant but needed to be told.

Safe travels all.

I have only made day trips to this park, but really enjoy the walking/hiking trails. There's a nice museum with lots of memorabilia and information about David Crockett, and they have a bird sanctuary on the premises. I enjoyed eating in the restaurant, as well.

We visited via an RV trip in mid winter. When we arrived the park was literally empty, with the exception of one Tent camper. This was to be expected due to the weather and season. We were there for my daughters local competition at a local high school.
The staff was very pleasant, and traveled the grounds a lot for safety. While we were away they found an overflow issue on our water tank and politely found the valves and shut them off and closed everything back up when they were done. (This was greatly appreciated)
During our stay our 2 large dogs also were with us and both explored the area with us. We seen a lot of deer and smaller animals when at the campground. While there it snowed about an inch and the area due to its gorgeous unique terrain had a fog fill the valleys late at night and in the mornings. This coupled with snow and the very quite area made this one of my favorite overnight stays.
We plan on returning in the near future with our RV and Motorcycles to tour and ride the area around this park.
The year date of my visit posted is not the same as the dates we where there. But was so impressed by the serenity and peaceful nature of this park, that I had to write this review.

Supercute park. The owl exhibit and museum was a great unexpected surprise. Plenty of picnic tables, pretty area, and family friendly. There was a deer lying next to the pool entrance so peacefully. ( the pool appeared to be closed). Very glad we stopped in to check it out.

I have not gotten to see all of the park but plan to keep returning till I do. The kids loved it here, we loved the little exercise stops on the trail, but some need repair. Hopefully the state will fix them.

We did a 2 night camping trip with the extended family. We used campground number 1. It is on a rock creek which was great for the kids but I think #2 is more modern and accessible for bigger RVs. Nice state park. The kids had a good time. Watch out for the red light cameras if you go into town for supplies. Lawrenceburg isn't a big town but it took me over an hour to get to Walmart and back when I forgot my extension cord for my camper. This reminds me of a gripe. When camping at campground #1, the connections are OBSCENELY far from the parking for your RV. Bring a long hose and an extension cord.
