  • The park offered extremely clean cabins that were comfortable and well supplied. I took my sons and wished we had been able to stay longer. There was so much to do and see! I highly recommend this fac...  read more »
  • We had a great weekend tent camping at Henry Horton (first weekend of October) and here is what was great, and what was not. The pros are that it's a nice park that is easy access from Nashville, and ...  read more »
  • It's always peaceful and kids can play at the playground, when finished playing on some days it's also nice to enjoy the buffet style restraint. 
  • I have frequented many Tennessee state parks and I have never experienced what I did at Henry Horton. The camp host and employees we very intrusive. We were the ONLY tent campers in the entire campground and Donald the camp host came by 4-5 times on our first day alone. It didn't feel private at all with a noisy golf cart interrupting our nature time every hour and nor did we feel respected. As we were setting up, I took a break and sat next to the fire with my border collie. I unleashed her and she sat next to me by the fire. If there were anyone else around- I would have kept her tethered- but like I said- we were completely alone. Donald whipped around the corner in his little noisy golf cart and sat there and waited until I releashed her then drove off. I was not rude or said anything to him because I understand that's a rule, but I couldn't believe how rude he was about it. Not to mention how ridiculous it was I had to leash my dog who was sitting next to me- and again- with no one else in site. He could've been a little more understanding in light of the "completely alone in the woods" situation. Also, ticks were everywhere. Please tell the camp host and employees to allow some nature experience without feeling like we're being watched every hour and interrupted by a noisy golf cart. They started the next day coming by at 8am waking everyone up. It was not a pleasant experience.
  • Great folks running the trap & skeet ranges. Love the affordability and ease of use. Also, well maintained.
  • Great little place to get away to. Nice campground can accommodate some long motor homes if needed. Golf course is well maintained and has nice open fairways.
  • This is an awesome place. Great amenities, clear camp sights, and worth the 3 hour drive. We'll be back!
  • We live near the park and use it very often. The pool is nice and the park is decent. I give the low rating because this would make a nice municipal park but it is not what one thinks of when thinking about a state park. Also the restaurant is horrible.
