Bledsoe Creek State Park

Updated: Dec 20, 2021

Bledsoe Creek State Park is located at 400 Zieglers Fort Rd, in Gallatin, Tennessee. It has 169 acres and sits on Old Hickory Lake. Be careful when you're driving- we ended up blowing a tire! This was originally Native American hunting grounds, and artifacts have been found that have been dated to 1000 BCE. Several long hunters settled the land in the 1700s, including Colonel Anthony Bledsoe. The land became a state park in 1973. It has a visitor's center, docks, playgrounds, an amphitheater, a historic interpretive trail, picnic shelters/pavilions, 58 level campsites, 19 primitive waterfront campsites, boat docks, and hiking trails. Trails include the Birdsong Nature Tail (.3 miles, ADA accessible), the High Ridge Trail (1.3 miles), the Mayo Wix Memorial Trail (1 mile, ADA accessible), the Owl Ridge Trail (.25 mile), the Shoreline Trail (1.5 miles), and the Woodchuck Hollow Trail (.2 mile).
