Tims Ford State Park


The 10,700-acre Tims Ford Lake is one of the most picturesque in Tennessee and is regarded as one of the top bass fishing and recreational lakes in the Southeast.

Tims Ford State Park, located on the Tims Ford Reservoir in the rolling hills of southern middle Tennessee, is an outstanding recreational area and fishing paradise. Long before the construction of Tims Ford Dam on the headwaters of the Elk River, the area was used extensively by the Indians as a hunting and fishing territory. Archaeological excavations uncovered numerous artifacts and occupational sites, indicating that man had occupied the area as much as 10,000 to 12,000 years ago.

The park boasts a wide variety of activities and amenities: 

  • Biking
  • Boating/Marina
  • Holiday Landing Resort and Marina
  • Bear Trace Golf Course
  • Cabins
  • Camping
  • Conference Facility
  • Fishing
