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 - 12
thousand years ago.
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 Lake offers fun for all. There are two campgrounds, two
large marinas. Lake home and cabin rentals are very popular. The lake
is well known with fishermen and offers excellent rockfish, large and
small mouth bass, crappie, walleye, and trout fishing in the tail water.
Tims Ford State Park is a full featured park and hosts the Bear Trace
golf course. There are miles of hiking trails, biking trails, and loads
of shopping opportunities. The annual Dogwood Festival is a great
family event. If you would like more information on any part of the city
