Henry Horton is classified as a state resort park, which means it has a golf course, a lodge, cabins, and more. However, for tent campers and outdoor recreation enthusiasts, Henry Horton has another side—the side that has two tent-camping areas and the beauty of the Duck River. This appealing canoeing stream flows through heart of the park, in between massive rock bluffs and tree-lined banks.
Here is a quick rundown of activities: tennis, badminton, basketball, disc golf, volleyball, and skeet shooting. The camp also has an Olympic-size pool with life-guards on duty in summer. On the more rustic side is Turkey Trail, which makes a 2.5-mile loop for hikers to enjoy. The
Wilhoite Mill Trail, where Henry’s relatives ground their meal, courses along the Duck River past machine relics from days gone by.
