The cabins are the best in the Tn park system....and the people are wonderful. They will help you and tell you all about the history and area including the critters. A peaceful and economic weekend in Tennessee . Don't forget to visit the Tn pearl museum in Camden .

My wife, son, and I stayed at the Rustic Cabin this past weekend. It was a great experience! The cabin was built in the 1930s and opened up for visitors in 2003. It does have window AC/heat unit but we chose to use the wood burning fireplace on the cool nights. The wood is provided for you. There is over... More

PROS: The River Folk life Museum was by far the highlight of the park, but don’t miss the Civil War Memorial and artifacts in the visitor’s center, the Native American and natural history specimens in the visitor’s center. If you have time, hike one of the beautiful trails or visit the lake. They have both campgrounds and modern cottages here.... More

This was the BEST state park I have visited in quite a long time. The staff was very courteous and respectful. The ranger even allowed us to use the kayaks to explore the lake and it was fantastic. If you are in the military or a veteran all of Tennessee State parks gives you a 25% military discount. That was... More

This state park is tucked away in Eva, TN with beautiful and peaceful surroundings. There are cabins for rent that were recently updated - they were perfect. Still rustic, no 5-star amenities --but this was a perfect spot for a nature-full getaway. We went in the end of March, first week of April so not all of the trails were... More

If you are looking for a quiet get-away spot, go to Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park. The cabins are well-maintained and comfortable. Stocked with dishes, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and refrigerator. The deck is covered and is a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the view of lake. Plenty of walking trails to explore. The area is so beautiful and... More

Food at the lodge was GOOD, typical Southern cooking. The lodge is great and the scenery is the best. Wonderful place for a family reunion. The park is a little off the beaten path, but the directions are easy to follow. We would go back!

We were RV campers in November, what a beautiful camp, and the grounds were well maintained. The museum was so informative; they did an excellent job on the history they preserved for everyone. We went to the top of the knob and enjoyed a beautiful view of the lake. Great place to go and relax. We are planning our next... More

What a great little museum that shows the way people lived on the Tennessee River in the early 1900's. It is a pretty drive up to the museum through the Nathan Bedford Forest State Park. I will be going back with family and out of town guests.

We stayed in a cabin in Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park this past week and it was wonderful! The cabins are very spacious, quiet, and very clean. Everything you need is provided including linens, dinnerware, microwave, fridge and even a toaster. The sofa by the gas fireplace was a perfect place to sit and enjoy reading a good book. The...
