“Boating, fishing and hiking”

Lake Leatherwood City Park is a place of natural serenity encompassing 1600 acres which includes an 85 acre spring-fed lake. The lake is formed by one of the largest hand-cut native limestone dams in the country.  The dam and several structures at the park were built in the early 1940's by the WPA. Lake Leatherwood Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The park offers a variety of recreational opportunities. For hiking and biking enthusiasts, the park maintains over 21 miles of trails with varying terrains. Please note that all trails are closed to motorized vehicles. Hikers and bicyclists will enjoy solitude, wildlife, cool springs, an intermittent creek, historic stone walls and bridges, unusual rock formations and the beauty of nature.    Fishing & boating fans will be glad to know that the park provides a paved boat ramp and a handicapped-accessible kayak & canoe launch! The waters of Lake Leatherwood are home to blue gill, crappie, bream, large mouth bass and channel catfish. Forgot your fishing pole? No worries, the well-stocked Bait Shop has fishing poles, bait, tackle & a surprising assortment of sundries for sale. Kayaks, canoes, row boats & paddle boats are available for rent.
