About 20 miles southeast of Nashville lies Long Hunter State Park, one of the area's most popular parks. If you are a true nature lover or a scientist, you will marvel at the rich bio-diversity and a chance to see rare plants and animals. Enjoy a day hiking one of nineteen trails or try your hand at catching the "big one" on Percy Priest Lake. After the sun goes down, enjoy spending the evening under the stars at one of the wooded campsites. The park also plays host to the Annual Tennessee State PowWow & Fall Festival. This park is open daily from 7 a.m. onwards.
