Elk River Clean Up – Saturday, February 25, 2017 at 8:30am
Tim’s FordState Park, located on the Tim’s Ford Reservoir in the rolling hills of southern middle Tennessee, is an outstanding recreational area and fishing paradise. Long before the construction of Tim’s Ford Dam on the headwaters of the Elk River, the area was used extensively by the Indians as a hunting and fishing territory. Archaeological excavations uncovered numerous artifacts and occupational sites, indicating that man had occupied the area as much as 10,000 to 12,000 years ago.
Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout
The park has 20 beautiful cabins situated on the wooded slopes of Tim’s FordLake. The cabins are completely equipped for housekeeping; including appliances, cooking and serving utensils, and linens. Each cabin features a gas fireplace, outdoor balcony, color TV with dish network and charcoal grills. Cabins have two bedrooms with two double beds in each bedroom. Reservation requirements are two night minimum stays and holidays are three night minimum stays. June and July are 6 nights extend stays beginning on Mondays. For cabin reservations: 800-471-5295.
