“Good Hiking Trails”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Tim's Ford State Park in Winchester, TN, has some very nice hiking trails, including a three mile (one-way) paved hiking/biking trail that starts at the visitor's center and winds across a bridge out to a peninsula jutting into the middle of the lake. The park has picnic areas, camping, fishing, a golf course, and boat ramps. No food available in the park, soda machines at visitor's center. Nice indoor restrooms at visitors center too. Go enjoy a walk in the woods!

“Communing with Nature at Tims Ford State Park”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

For years, before we moved up to Winchester, TN, our family camped at this park. They have great camp sites, some of which are drive through for large 5th wheelers. Now, they have a nature center with recreational programs for kids and adults of all ages. Weekly programs schedules can be found at the Visitor Center from Memorial Day to Labor Day.arwith Ashli Cook, one of the Forest Rangers. This year, they have put in over 70 miles of trails, including one over a swinging bridge--which our family used to take.
The park also has an excellent Jack Nicklaus Bear Trace Golf Course and pro shop, Lakeview Marina, 20 AAA-sanctioned cabins, two full campgrounds, Olympic-size swimming pool, air-conditioned recreation hall, and 3 picnic shelters.There is with a clubhouse, where you can sit in a rocking chair on the porch, sipping a tall cool one after a game.

You will never stay or visit a more "natural" environment.

“Great walking and paved bike trails”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I love the walk or bike ride out to Weaver's point. It is a picturesque walk thru forest and along side the lake. I love to do this trail in the autumn with the leaves changing. It has gentle rolling hills and a few benches along the way for a brief sit. From the Picnic pavilions to the end of Weaver's point and back is about 6 miles. We have often seen deer along the way on this trail.

“Best camping facility - ever!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

We are not experienced campers so this was a great place for us to experience the camping life! Electricity and water hoop up at your camp site! Clean restrooms and showers in walking distance. Beautiful hiking/biking trails. Picture perfect scenery. I loved it and we will vacation here again!!

“Great place...”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

This is the second time my family and I have been to this park. Both times were in the off season so it was not very busy but we had a great time. The hiking trails are kid friendly and the entire family enjoyed the wildlife.

We stayed in one of the cabins which was older but well kept and clean. It had a huge back deck with a great view of the lake.

The staff was fantastic. They were overly helpful and knowledgeable of the local sites. They did everything possible to make you feel at home
