Bledsoe Creek State Park is rich in history. It was once a prime hunting ground for the Cherokee, Creek, Shawnee and Chickamauga Native American tribes. Once English settlers arrived to the area, the once great herds of animals were dispersed, never to return. The area is home to a wealth of Native American history along with various historical sites nearby. The Bledsoe Creek territory became a Tennessee State Park in 1973.To visit Bledsoe Creek State Park and get the most from your holiday in Gallatin, create itinerary details personal to you using our Gallatin trip planner .

Past the sign for this park hundreds of times decided to give it a go. Beautiful park. Bathrooms spotless. Camp site level with a view that can't be beat. Well maintained trails. Check in easy and efficient. Actually saw an eagle swoop down and catch a fish right in front of our campsite. Definitely will be back.
This is a nice small park with camping facilities, lake, playground, and hiking trails. They also have a place to put your boats in the water. It would have been five stars but while walking over one of the bridges you could see dead fish floating around. The water just didn't seem very clean either which could possibly account for the dead fish. The main lake seemed better and we did see many live fish and a turtle in it.
