Set in the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee, 1,140-acre Henry Horton State Park is located on the former estate of the late Henry H. Horton, 36th governor of Tennessee. Located on the shores of the historic Duck River, the park provides hours of recreational enjoyment for the day or a weekend getaway in picturesque, pastoral Middle Tennessee.
Camping
Henry Horton State Park provides 75 campsites situated along the Duck River, designated a state scenic river. Twenty-one sites are primitive camp sites recommended for tents only. There is a large group site for primitive camping. The other 54 sites have tables, grills, water spigots and electrical hook-ups. Campers are served by two modern bathhouses and a dump station for self-contained trailer rigs.

All campsites are available on a first come-first served basis. Campers can set up on vacant sites and a seasonal camp attendant or Park Ranger will visit to the site to register users, usually in the late afternoon. The stay limit is two weeks.
Swimming
The park has an olympic-sized pool with bathhouses and a concession stand. The pool is open from Memorial Day week-end through Labor Day. Ample sunbathing space is provided with the pool area, and there is a wading pool for the kiddies. Lifeguards are on duty during swimming hours. Registered cabin guests swim free.

Camping guests swim at discounted rate with a camping receipt.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 20 nice park, very helpful campground host by Jeanette
campsites are spacious and well separated with lots of trees for shade. campground host was very helpful. The campground is on a hill some sites are difficult to get your camper level. Also most of the elec and water hookups are on the wrong side. The park is well kept with very clean bathhouse facilities. They were cleaned at least 3 times a day during our visit.
June 22 One of my favorites by Camper John
Great park with lots to do. Canoe down the Duck or play a round of frisbee gold.
