Tennessee State Parks held a grand re-opening for the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park campground on Monday, with state and local officials.
The 88 campsites received electrical upgrades to 50 amp, Wi-Fi, site upgrades and new paving. The original bathhouse was renovated and an ADA bathhouse was added.
The 105-acre historic state park, just upstream from the falls of the scenic Nolichucky River, is maintained as a memorial to the famous pioneer statesman and Tennessean Davy Crockett. The park 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. The park has a swimming pool and playground located adjacent to the campground.
