Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The site of a Civil War engagement, the highest point in West Tennessee, attractive campsites right on Kentucky Lake... Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park is a land of superlatives.
Anglers and boaters love the proximity of Kentucky Lake to Lakefront Campground: you can almost fish from your tent at some of the sites. There is no designated swimming area, but a whole lake lies before you. However, before you hit the water, consider heading up to Pilot Knob. Catch the view from the point that settlers used as a beacon for many a year. There is an interpretive center up here, too, that focuses on the life and times of those who used to live on the Tennessee River."
