At David Crockett State Park, you can explore the area where this legendary frontiersman lived and worked before he served in Congress and eventually died at the Alamo. Today, the park offers a glimpse into Crockett's life in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, teaching visitors about the distillery, powdermill, and gristmill he operated on the banks of Shoal Creek. Follow in his footsteps on the hiking and biking trails, enjoy the outdoors in the Olympic-sized swimming pool, and rent boats to explore Lindsey Lake. With its hot summers and mild winters, the park is a year-round escape. Getting there is easy as Lawrenceburg sits just one mile away and Columbia is 40 miles northeast.
