This area was purchased from the Chancery Court of Lewis County for delinquent taxes in 1933 and became a State Forest in 1936. It is on the Western Highland Rim in central-southwestern Tennessee, in Lewis County. There are no known cultural sites on the forest. There is a demonstration forest road, exemplifying the use of BMPs and appropriate engineering specifications. Other areas of the forest have served for past research studies. A small wetland occurs in the southwestern corner of the forest. Most of the land (97%) is in forest cover and the remainder is open land. This Forest is somewhat unique in the Tennessee State Forest system in that about 15% of the forested area is in the southern yellow pine type. Primary recreational use of the Forest is for hunting. All timber harvests include objectives for improving habitat for wildlife.
