I grew up in Lawrence County, and have watched through the years as the park has developed. Some of my favorite things about the park are the paved walking trails. You can choose from mild trails to some that are fairly aggressive. The flora and fauna are equal to any you'll find anywhere, and much better than most. Go in the morning or afternoon, and you'll almost always see part of the great herd of deer that roam through the park. They have a great restaurant, fishing at the lake is great, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. So many great things have come to the park in the last few years, you have to come see them for yourself. Crockett days is a celebration of life during our country's frontier days that happens in late summer. It has dwindled down a little in the last few years. I'd like to see that rekindle.

Had a wonderful camping experience. My family and I had the best primitive sites right along the creek! Staff was friendly and helpful. We disliked that other campers used our site as a shortcut to the field next to our site. We spent a lot of time running people off that would walk through, transport large limbs, or walk their dogs right through my campsite where my family was! The park ranger handled it wonderfully though. The museum was great, waterfall was easy to access and the kids loved it.

As a person who has not gone camping in a minute, this was a good refresher and introduction back into camping. Camped at Campground 1 at sites 29 & 30 Pros: Family oriented, easily accessible via car and has bathrooms available. Was surprised when my group found the aviary and one of the staff members was making rounds on the campgrounds with one of the hawks. The creek is within 6'-8' from where we were. Very relaxing and fun. Cons: You can't swim in the lake, due to how deep the water is and that there are fisherman on the water. You cannot kayak down from the Falls to Campground 2. I tried. I walked my kayak a good 2 miles because of how shallow it was. Not the parks fault at all, just a good warning to the adventurous people out there. Campsites were kinda small due to the slope leading to the creek. Fire pit was small, approximately 3'x4'(but it did come with a grate, making cooking a lot easier). The L6-30 plug-in for the sites(yes, they are L6-30 not edison) weren't standard twist lock so we weren't able to utilize them safely.

This is a beautiful and quite place to camp. This was my daughter's first time camping and she had a real good time. We loved the museum and the birds. She got to pet a screech owl. We had a blast on the paddle boats. We will be back to camp again.

RV spots are to small to uneven so watch your step. I had a rude lady beating on the RV door while I was taking a nap with my two year old grandson while the rest of the family were out walking. They also where the people who were in charge. When I say beating she was relentlessly beating on the door until she woke the baby up just to tell me we haven’t paid for our spot 33 for the night and if someone comes in saying it’s there spot we would have to leave. What it amounted to was we couldn’t get our RV into 32 because of how small their RV spots are so when we first got there my daughter and her husband change from 32 to 33 for the two nights we stayed and the girls on the computer only changed it for one night. A hour before this happened someone tried to back their RV in 32. They left in frustration. So the girls in the office probably made a mistake and we paid for it by a rude woman. The kids found glass in the creek. We drove 3 plus hours to get there. I would go back if I live within 30 minutes but other then that no way.
