Nice clean park, but needs updating. Bathrooms were clean, but very dated. I put "No" on the waterfront sites, but there are actually several sites along the stream, where there are several very refreshing spots to wade and play. We've camped there before and return just to be able to sit in the stream in my chair and read. As far as the nightly rate, ours was $17, but we received a Senior rate, so I'm not sure how much the regular rate would be. Definitely will return. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Had to change sites three times because site chosen was not large enough and electrical hookups were too far away for our cord to reach. Bathhouses need to be updated. We had thought about going back to this park again but after this experience we will not be going back. Road at check-in area is hard to get through because visitors in vehicles block the road. We had to get a park ranger to find the people and have them move their vehicles. This was not a pleasant experience after traveling six hours to get to the park. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There are two campgrounds in this park. An upper one and a lower one. We have stayed at the upper one a few times. Not all of the sites are level, but we have been lucky enough to be able to park in mostly level ones thus far. The park is beautiful and we have woken up to wild turkey gobbling near our camper. The wildlife is abundant with deer, turkey, and raccoon. The swimming pool is not in the campground but is in another location of the park. The bathhouses are clean but the showers could use more water pressure. There is no sewer, but they do have a dump station. There is also campground hosts during the summer season. They are very nice and helpful and take very good care of the campground. This is the first year they have allowed online reservations and we love the fact that we don't have to sign in at the park office and can reserve specific sites. We usually arrive after the park office closes and are given a key code for access into the park. The park restaurant has a nice buffet lunch and dinner when you can catch it open. This is a nice park for a weekend getaway or an extended vacation. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was the first campground in a month of travelling that I had to use the leveling blocks. Maybe it was just that one particular site but the others appeared to have their own off-camber issues also. The strangest thing is you drive through the dump station to enter or exit the campground. Therefore if you are doing the dumping routine, you will be blocking traffic. Weird. Very nice clean restroom/shower facilities. Peaceful and quiet with a forest setting. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park just outside of Lawrenceburg, staff is friendly and helpful. There are 2 camping areas, we stayed in campground #2, it's very wooded and quiet. There is a notice at the front gate: "No alcohol allowed." This seems to go a long way in keeping the park quiet and peaceful. Even larger groups were quiet and respectful of other campers. Some sites are not very level, but there are plenty to choose from, so you'll find one to suit your needs depending on your rig. Only 30A, and there is a dump station right at the entrance to the campground. The water pressure is a little low, but not unbearable, with a little work on their camping pads, they'd rate a 10. Great walking trail winds through the woods, plenty of deer, wild turkeys, raccoons and squirrel to be seen. The Visitor Center is very nice and has a great display about David Crockett and the history of the area. You can see that investment is being made in this park as improvements are ongoing. Cabins have recently been completely renovated, there is a restaurant on the park and there are planned activities by the interpretive staff. They have GAMPRO stations on the walking trail. Crockett Falls is very nice, a small waterfall, but pretty, covered bridge, very charming. Several restaurants and shopping within a quick drive in Lawrenceburg. Would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

There are 2 campgrounds in this park, the original one along a beautiful and peaceful creek, and a newer one in the woods. Many of the spaces in the creek side campground are too small for a larger camper but the ambiance is much better there. There is nothing to see in the wooded area but trees and that gets old fast. Unfortunately, they close the creek side campground after the summer and the only choice is the woods. There are still a lot of pluses to this park though. There are biking and hiking trails and a nice swimming pool and peaceful lake. I'd give it a higher rating if they didn't close the creek side campground.

This park is situated where Davy owned and ran along the banks of the Shoal Creek a powder mill, a gristmill and distillery. All three were washed away in floods in 1821 and that is when he decided to move west. At the park there are bike trails and one can ride along Shoal Creek where Davy Crockett worked. In August, there are Davy Crockett Days which is a big festival. This campground has a big lake, boating, fishing, swimming in a pool, fishing, a nature museum, and a great restaurant. Sites are not level and in April only loop 1 and 2 of the second campground were open. It must have been spring break because there were a lot of children here and the bathrooms were not that clean. I had heard so much about TN State Parks but I did not really like this park. The woman that checked us in was wonderful though – pleasant, friendly and very informative. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

We liked this park. We were in the #2 section, which is wooded and quite pretty. Many of the sites have nice views into ravines and the woods. Our site was pretty level, but many are not. The sites are large and reasonably private. The Campground Hosts were very friendly and helpful. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were told at "sign-in" desk that it is "no problem" for a 40' MH and 50amp was available. There were NO 50 amp sites at all and sites were so far from level there was no way 40' could be leveled. The general condition of the park was "trashy". We obtained a refund and left! We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

There are 2 campgrounds in this state park. #1 is along a creek but it was closed due to debris from a recent flood. The sites in that area are mostly small & many do not have shade. Campground #2, where we stayed, is wooded. The sites are spacious and shady, but most are not level, and the pavement is broken off in places. The bath house in our end of the campground needed to be cleaned more thoroughly. It also needs to be updated & is not handicap accessible, although the bath house at the other end of campground #2 has been updated & is accessible. However, it also needed to be cleaned more thoroughly. The showers are nice & hot, and there is adequate space in the dressing area. The campground hosts were very friendly and helpful. They live there 6 months out of the year and have been there several years. In another area of the park there is a paved bike trail that goes through a wooded area. It was very enjoyable in spite of the numerous cracks & buckles in the pavement. Another plus is the park's restaurant, which offers a very good buffet. It is just a short drive from the campground. There are also a lot of planned activities offered for kids, a swimming pool near the restaurant, and areas for different sports activities. Wildlife are abundant in the park. We saw deer, wild turkeys, and raccoons. The raccoons raided the campground trash cans every night. This state park has a lot to offer, but the condition of the bath house needs to be addressed.

See the October 2007 reviews if you are over 32'. Came in and will never again. We are a 35' MH with slides and towing, and the slope is way too much. There are a 'couple' of sites that can work if you are 35' to 40', if you can get one. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first time in a TN State Park, and we were not disappointed! Spacious wooded sites, and nice quiet, very dark evenings. Not too far off the Natchez Trace Parkway. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

Absolutely beautiful state park located within a city. Access roads and sites are pretty narrow and tight. I don't think a large pusher could get into the camping area. We had a 26' travel trailer and had no problems. Some of the camp sites are closed. The park is being renovated and cabins are being built. The camp host(s) were friendly and did a great job of maintaining the area. The scenery is great and wildlife abounds. We saw deer and a flock of wild turkeys. Shopping is readily available in Lawrenceburg. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Travel Trailer.
