This state archeological park preserves a 2,000-year-old American Indian ceremonial site on a 50-acre swath between the Little Duck and Duck rivers. The exact purpose of this area, enclosed by earth and stone walls that connect to bluffs of the rivers, may never be known. But it can be hypothesized that the Indians appreciated the beauty of this area as much as we can today. The Old Stone Fort was never a fort in the defensive sense. Early Tennessee settlers gave it that name. The confluence of history, beauty, and high-quality camping makes the Old Stone Fort a no-brainer for tent campers interested in exploring Tennessee.
