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.
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.

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.
