The park is nice, but the tree has been gone for years. There is a nice nature trail to walk thru. Good place to take family for a picnic. When they are having events, there is always something worth seeing.

This is a very "natural" area. There are grills, picnic tables, a pavilion, baseball field with a backstop, walking trails, boardwalk, swings, children's play gym and restrooms. The pavilion may be reserved for special events. Cell service is very limited.

It was very hot the day i was there and i was the only person in the park. I expected it to be more of a wildlife preserve and wetlands. there was no water among the cypress trees. The facilities were very nice for families.

It's got a small park, but if you are into Tennessee history it's not a bad trip. The "big" tree is gone, but you still get the experience. Outside of fuel to get there and food you'll have to bring to eat on, it's very...More

Very pretty and serene with a nice new boardwalk through an oak and cypress forest. The boardwalk seems to not be quite done yet since it just stops (as of July 2015). Take bug spray.

This park does not have the Big Cypress on it anymore due to lighting in 1976, but it tells of David Crockett and that he hunted this area when he lived in Weakley County. It also has a newly constructed boardwalk that takes you 1100...More
