Don't waste your time. After you get there you find out that the tree is no longer standing. Big let down!

Great hiking trail with large trees. Small lake. Picnic tables and swing sets with slides for the kids.

If you need a park to go to in the NW TN area, this is it. The tree isn't there anymore, but the trail is very relaxing. Great place to play ball, observe greenery, and spend time with loved ones.

I wish the Tennessee state tourism magazine/book would have mentioned that the park consists of a picnic area, and a 0.3 mile loop hike that does NOT include the big cypress tree that died in 1976. Seeing the championship tree is the only reason I went. It's a clean park with a small playground for children, so if you are in the area and need to get some fresh air, go ahead and make a stop, but it's not worth driving out of the way for. I hiked the trail at a leisurely pace and still only spent 11 minutes total at the park, which included reading the history at the kiosk!

BCTSNA, located in west Tennessee, consists of a picnic area, trails, flower gardens, and a softball field. There are no camping facilities either. Needless to say it’s a small park, but it borders the Big Cypress Wildlife Management Area so there is more than meets the eye. The park is not really close to any major highway (or big cities for that matter) so you won’t hear many vehicles. While you are in the general area, you have ample opportunity to visit a handful of National Wildlife Refuges, Reelfoot Lake, Paris Landing SP, etc. West TN is definitely full of opportunities to enjoy nature, wildlife, small towns, etc.
