Shelbyville, Tim's Ford Lake, and Normandy Lake Area Campgrounds Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The town of Shelbyville is famous for the Tennessee Walking Horse and is home to the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration. This eleven-day event takes place annually in August. The celebration draws thousands of people each year, from Tennessee and abroad, who delight in the beauty of the Tennessee Walking Horse. Nearby Lynchburg, a small town perhaps better known as the home of the Jack Daniel’s Distillery, is also the location of the Tennessee Walking Horse Museum. Tim’s Ford Lake, covering 11,950 acres, is one of the most picturesque lakes in Tennessee.
It is a popular fishing destination for many anglers, with catches of smallmouth bass, walleye, crappie, and many other species. Tim’s Ford isalso a favorite spot in summer for people who enjoy water-related activities. Normandy Dam, which creates Normandy Lake, is the largest non-power-generating TVA dam on any Tennessee River tributary. Normandy Dam was built in the midseventies as a way of controlling floods, producing a water supply, and creating recreational opportunities."
