This park offers two campgrounds. Campground 1 with primitive sites & Campground 2 with larger RV sites. We stayed in Campground 2. Sites were larger, more spacious, but leveling was an issue at many sites. Took a little longer than normal to level on gravel/dirt site due to ruts. Reserved for a Monday/Tuesday stay and found the Visitor Center (staffing issue), Restaurant and Pool all closed. Only disappointed about the Visitor Center: shame on Tennessee for not having a contingency plan when Student Interns have to leave.

Shorts hikes were nice, and Crockett Falls was a great place to cool off on a hot afternoon. Outside the park, Lawrenceburg was quite a big town that had everything you could want or need.

The Amish Welcome Center should have been closed. Shame on them for luring tourists into what has to be an embarrassment to the Amish Community. It was a filthy, disgusting, junk shop with thrift shop items in it - yuck! We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Very pretty bicycle trails, walking trails, water falls. There are cabins and a campground. If they had wifi and sewer, it would be perfect. Great place to camp. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground with wooded sites, no sewer hookups but convenient dump station. Some sites need leveling but ours was manageable. Campground host was available and helpful. Off air TV reception was minimal. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It was hard to get around some of the curves in the campground. Most of the sites were very short and unlevel. We had to work a long time to get set up. Trees were close on each side so getting awning and slide out was a challenge. It was quiet and dark which we like. Not sure about getting satellite reception as there are a lot of trees. We would have left the park if we had not been so tired. The park office closes 30 minutes before the official check-in time which is silly. We camped here in a 31 foot class C.

This is a typical state campground but the park has plenty to do and is very nice. The site we had was along the brook and had more than enough space. It was mostly level. I only had to block one jack in the front.
The only problem was the electrical hookup. It was to far away for our camper cord. Luckily we had a 30 amp extension cord or we would have had to move the camper much closer to the road.
As others have mentioned the bathrooms really need to be updated. The bathroom stalls are so small that closing the doors is a big problem.
We would probably stay again but only as a transit stop. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stopped for the night as a good midpoint to our next destination...beautiful park with deep woods, river and lake and even a covered bridge. Site was back in and fine though the water and electric were poorly positioned. Bring extensions if you go. Received a warm welcome from the ranger and campground host. Bathrooms not filthy but about what you'd expect in a public park. No wifi and poor cell signal but the beauty of the park was worth it. Town is within a mile or so and you can see the Davey Crockett statue and get anything you need in a full range of shopping stores including a Super Walmart. There were a couple of bigger coaches than us that had sites that accomodated them but everything is back in and many sites aren't capable for a 40 footer. Nonetheless...a great value in a pretty place. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in Campground 1, which has some sites on a small creek. Our site was good but we noticed that many sites are too short to accommodate even the smallest campers. It would be a good idea to talk to someone at the park office about this when selecting a site. Some sites have asphalt pads that have crumbled on the edges & some slope quite a bit. This is especially true in Campground 2, which is wooded and hilly. The campground is clean but in need of repairs and updates. The bath house is clean but it is very dated. The park has quite a few amenities and a lot of wildlife. I would not recommend the park's restaurant after eating there. There are other restaurants close by that are much better. I do like camping at David Crockett but it is long overdue for some updates. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is an Amish/Mennonite community just a few miles north in Ethridge where you can buy items from them at their farms. The park office had maps showing where to go to buy different food & handmade items.
Highly recommended restaurants nearby: Bliss Farm Market & Cafe on the square in Lawrenceburg (5 minutes away) and The Brass Lantern on E. Gaines (10 minutes away).

Very pretty state park. Even though we stayed before the pool was opened on Memorial Day the park was full of families enjoying Shoal Creek which runs along the edge of Campground #1. Because we were there off season the museum was closed and we didn't use the restaurant. Trash cans were available at every site and emptied daily. If you consider the sounds of kids laughing and playing to be noise then it was fairly noisy. Such things don't bother us because it simply means the park is family friendly. It was very quiet at night, (except for some talkative owls), and early in the morning. We attempted to drive around the park before we left to see Campground #2, which is high up on a hill away from the rest of the park. It does have it's own playground. We discovered that to fully circle the park in anything higher than 8 or so feet is impossible due to a 10ft clearance bridge. Unless you are fond of LONG walks some form of transportation is necessary; although restrooms/showers were convenient the pool, restaurant and museum were a good distance away. The majority of people there had a toad and/or bicycles. I didn't see any "courtesy bags" for pet owners so be sure to have some plastic bags with you if you travel with pets. This is a challenging park for big rigs and it was even a bit hard to comfortably maneuver our 31ft MH around some of the turns in the park. I would recommend either visiting the park before staying or make a reservation via the Tennessee State Park website to be sure to get a site that has what you want/need. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

Lawrenceburg is close and has most necessities. While you could certainly day-trip to other places in middle Tennessee part of the charm of this park is the rustic rural beauty.

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.

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.

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.

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.
