Davy Crockett State Park

Post  Richard on Sat Aug 13, 2011 4:59 pm

Drove through Davy Crockett state park today and walked around at "Crocket Days" festival and pioneer camp. While the festival stuff was neat, overall it was a yawn. The campground was pretty full. There were only about a dozen camper spaces and a similar number of tent spaces available. This is the first time I've seen this campground with a lot of campers in it. I'm marking it of my list of places I want to go. The playground is pretty weak. A pool is a pool. The spaces are wooded and shady for the most part, but far too close together for my tastes. I can't imagine camping there instead of Warrior's Path, even for a change of pace. The Nolichucky river runs right next to the park, and that's cool, but not enough to make camping in such a cramped campground. worth it. I may take another look at some point and change my mind, but that was today's impression.

I have driven through this park also. It didn't impress me that much, but if you should decide to go, I would try to join you Richard.

Tellis, it's not bad, just not as good as some of the other choices in the area. I'm not ruling it out, just moving it far down on my list. Hungry Mother and Grayson Highlands are moving higher.

Got me interested in Grayson. Which driving route is the best? I am being told, up by Damacus and then go in at Marion.

I haven't been to Grayson Highlands, so I can't say with any authority. It sure looks like a nice place from what I see online.

It's over in Virginia. Not really in a town. Up in the higher mountains. You can easily find it on Google Maps.
