Located in the northern part of the state, Clarksville is the county seat of Montgomery County, and with a population of just over 142,000, it’s the fifth-largest city in the state. Temperatures dip into mid-twenties during the months of December, January and February, while hovering in the eighties and nineties during the months between May and September. Bear that in mind depending on when you plan your trip in an RV rental to Clarksville, Tennessee.

There’s a lot to see and do city in the city, and we are pretty sure your days will be filled up with lots of adventures. Here are some of the more interesting places to see and things to do.
If you like fishing, you will have to make a stop at the Liberty Park and Marina. The park is much more than a great fishing destination, as there are trails for hiking that wind along the Cumberland River, picnic tables and even miniature golf. Don’t forget your fishing gear!
Located on a bluff above the Red and Cumberland rivers, Fort Defiance Civil War Park & Interpretive Center used to be a fort built by the Confederates during the Civil War as a means to defend the river approach to Clarksville. The fort was captured by Union Forces in February of 1862, and was occupied for the remainder of the war. You will find the place to be remarkably well preserved, with the gun platforms, powder magazine and outer earthworks still intact. The interpretive center was constructed in 2008, and it is where you will find information and exhibits about pre-Civil War agriculture and industry, and hear recorded accounts about the Civil War. There are also a number of interpretive maps, a short film, and examples of Civil War weaponry and period clothing. If you’re a history buff, then this one has to be on your must-see list.
A cave system and park in the heart of the city? Yes! You read that correctly. Most cave networks are on the outskirts of town, but you’ll find this one right in the middle of everything. It’s not a huge place, but the cave plus the park that surrounds it will keep you entertained for a solid day. Dunbar Cave is always a fascinating adventure!
