Here in our own upper East Tennessee back yard is a great commemoration to Davy Crockett, pioneer, soldier, politician and industrialist. A favorite recreational spot for all seasons here in upper East Tennessee is the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park that commemorates the birthplace of this famous Tennessean.  In 1817, Davy Crockett moved to Lawrence County. While serving in Congress, he fought for his people’s right to keep land they had settled on in the new frontier of West Tennessee. Crockett died at the Alamo Mission in March of 1836 while aiding the Texans in their fight for independence from Mexico. Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park became a state park in 1973. This 105-acre historic park just upstream from the falls of the scenic Nolichucky River is maintained as a memorial to Davy Crockett. This area includes a limestone marker and replica cabin, as well as visitor center exhibits. Nearby is the Cherokee National Forest and his father’s Crockett Tavern Museum in Morristown.

Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park has 88 campsites. Forty have full hook-ups (water, electric and sewer), 30 sites have water and electric only and there are 18 primitive tent sites with no hook-up. The RV campsites can accommodate any size RV. Small tents may be put up beside the RV’s. The campground is located near the scenic Nolichucky River. A swimming pool and a playground are located adjacent to the camping area. The Nolichucky River provides fishing opportunities for a variety of fish including, small-mouth and large-mouth bass, crappie, bluegill, redeye and catfish. Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park is located at 1245 Davy Crockett Park Road, Limestone, TN, and more information is available on the DCBSP website
