Bledsoe Creek State Park

400 Zieglers Fort Road

Bledsoe Creek State Park is rich in history. It was once a prime hunting ground for the Cherokee, Creek, Shawnee and Chickamauga Native American tribes. Once English settlers arrived to the area, the once great herds of animals were dispersed, never to return. The area is home to a wealth of Native American history along with various historical sites nearby. The Bledsoe Creek territory became a Tennessee State Park in 1973.

The park features 57 campsites. There are more than six miles of scenic hiking trails. The trails meander through the forest and along the lakeshore of the park. One mile of these trails is paved making it accessible to persons with disabilities. The trails are open year round.

Bledsoe Creek offers two boat launch ramps, one for registered campers only and the other open for the general public. Other activities include fishing at Old Hickory Lake, picnic facilities (the largest able to accommodate up to 150 people) and park programs which provide entertainment for all ages and change annually.

This is a good camping area. There is no access to swimming here, but any other water activity is available. Sites are good sized, electric, and water at all. Dual dump stations, and no visitor fee. Reservations a must, open year round, hosts always available.

Okay park. Small and decent wildlife. Not much seclusion however. Looks great for kids but not so much for hiking. And motor boats.... 😣

Great park for hiking and exploring the woods. Several camping sites available with parking, grills, and picnic tables. We took our two young girls (2 and 5) and walked the short trail and ended at the kids play area. They had a lot of fun and enjoyed sitting by the creek. Bring plenty of water and snacks.

Awesome park! Mostly shaded areas and trails right along the water. Beautiful view. Peaceful and very family friendly. Public restrooms are very nice. Plenty of wild life - my husband and I ran into a few deer that were very close, and we also saw some cows, geese, ducks and swans. Nice paths and is very well maintained.
