David Crockett was a pioneer, soldier, politician and industrialist. 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. This 105-acre historic park just upstream from the falls of the scenic Nolichucky River is maintained as a memorial to 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. 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.

Paul, we're very sorry about the signage issue. We partner with TDOT to get signs up on the roads. Some of them are small, and they often disappear. Maybe it is one of the creatures you mentioned who took them. We're glad to hear your...More

Davy Crockett was a surprise. We really went there just out of curiosity but did not know that this was a beautiful area packed with history which helped remove some of the mythical nature that surrounds Crockett.
