I’ve made many day trips to hike at Bledsoe Creek State Park. Always well maintained and worthwhile. Great views can be enjoyed on the paved trails even if you’re not interested in/able to hike the hilly ones.

This has been a camping option for us since coming to Tennessee so we decided to take our son and dogs over to check it out and play. It seems to be a wonderful park. We really enjoyed our visit.

Great place to hike, camp, or have a picnic with friends. Brink a fishing pole or a kayak/boat and enjoy the water, too.
