“Camping on beautiful Kentucky Lake”
Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park features 8 cabins and 3 campgrounds for the vacationer, with 2 campgrounds being primitive. Six of the cabins have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with 2 full-size beds in each room. One is accessible to visitors with disabilities and features 3 beds and 2 bathrooms. Each has a fully furnished kitchen, A/C, a gas log fireplace, an outside grill, a phone, and satellite TV. There is a two night minimum, except on holidays when it is three nights. The remaining cabin is a Rustic Log Cabin. It overlooks Kentucky Lake from a secluded ridge. It is an authentic cabin from the 1930s that has been fully renovated, and features a full-size bed, log fireplace, full kitchen, full bathroom, covered back porch, and a pullout couch. This is the most popular cabin in the park and reservations are a must! The primitive campgrounds are the Happy Hollow camping area, with 37 sites with tables, grills, water and electrical hookups and a central bathhouse, and the second camping area, which features 13 sites. Not all of these sites have water hookups, but there is a central bathroom. The third campground is a supervised campground for youth groups, such as the scouts.
Nice park, but what is up with the name??! NBF was the first grand wizard of the KKK and responsible for the Fort Pillow massacre. African American union soldiers, and their officers who had surrendered, were murdered under NBF lead troops. I can think of a lot of other people this Park could be named after, rather than a racist murderer.
