David Crockett was a pioneer, soldier, and politician. He was born near the town of Limestone, Tenn. in 1786. David Crockett Birthplace State Park commemorates the birthplace of this famous Tennessean. In 1817, he 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. David Crockett Birthplace State Park became a state park in 1973.
David 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 105-acre park sits just upstream from the falls of the scenic Nolichucky River and is maintained as a memorial to Crockett. The area includes an 18th-century living farmstead, replica cabin, limestone marker, and visitor center exhibits. Nearby is the Cherokee National Forest and his father’s Crockett Tavern Museum in Morristown.
The Nolichucky River provides fishing opportunities for a variety of fish including, smallmouth and largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, redeye, and catfish.
