Davy Crockett State Park, TN


12 Aug 2018

After saying goodbye to our friends, we headed south and stopped for the night at Davy Crockett State Park in Lawrenceburg, TN.  After figuring out where the check in office was hiding, we were told to pick our own site.  The park is under repairs with lots of signs of the ongoing work.  It is a tight fit for even our small rig on some of the roads.  Section one near the river can only accommodate very small RV’s or tents.  Since it is very close to the river, flooding is obviously an issue.  We picked a site in the second section, which was also being worked on.  The sites were large enough, but the layout would make parking an issue for some bigger rigs.  We had a large remodeled site, and everything worked. There were also new bathrooms within a short walking distance. 







Before setting up, we made a quick trip to the Davy Crockett museum before it closed.  It was very small but interesting. The office warned us that the small bridge to get to the museum was 14ft clearance, but when we approached, a big sign on the bridge declared that it was 10 ft clearance.  It looked taller than that, so I slowly drove under it while Anneke carefully watched the clearance. It was no problem for us, but I cannot vouch for the claimed 14ft the office stated.  
 I trust the pictures will tell the story.

I remember a couple of my little brothers had Davy Crockett hats - must have been from watching the TV show. Did you get yourself a hat while there?

I wonder how much is legend and how much is reality. He was never called Davy. Always David. Davy was a Disney thing. Fun the visit those places.
