Warriors' Path State Park

Warriors' Path State Park
490 Hemlock Road

Warriors’ Path State Park was named for the Great Cherokee War and Trading Path. Since that time, the park land has known a long history of travelers and is still a pathway for modern-day outdoor enthusiasts. The 950-acre park is located on the shores of the Patrick Henry Reservoir on the Holston River.

The park is home to premier boating and fishing activity, hiking trails, an internationally-renowned mountain bike trail system (which is a designated National Recreational Trail), an award-winning nature education program and a nationally recognized golf course.

Warriors’ Path is the only Tennessee State Park with a Boundless Playground - where children of all physical and mental abilities can play together. Other unique features throughout the park that are fully accessible include: the Lions Narnia Braille Trail with eight sensory stations along a quarter-mile that tell visitors the story of Aslan of the Chronicles of Narnia, the Anderson Treehouse which is a fully-accessible tree house and the Palmer Center Foundation Amphitheater which can host audiences of up to 1,000 people.


A variety of paddlecraft are available for rent at the marina.

The disc golf course is a fun and challenging course with 22 holes.

Boats available for rental at the marina include paddle boats, single and tandem kayaks, paddleboards, paddleboats and canoes. The marina is open year-round, Wednesday through Sunday, but hours vary by season.

The Olympic size pool features a 12 ft. diving pool and a children’s wading pool.  A lifeguard is on duty during swimming hours.

12 miles of hiking trails take you through field and forest, over high bluffs and along peaceful streams. You’re likely to see a variety of native wildlife and wildflowers, and you might even find a creek that disappears! We do offer guided nature hikes, but, if you’d like your own personal “guide,” check out the self-guiding trail booklet for the Lakeshore Trail.

Warriors’ Path Golf Course is an 18-hole course located on the shores of Fort Patrick Henry Lake and the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

Bicycles are welcome on park roads as well as the paved path around Duck Island and over 12.5 more miles of scenic mountain bike trails.

Fort Patrick Henry Lake is a man-made reservoir on the South Fork of the Holston River. It’s a popular spot for fishing and pleasure boating. Catches include bass, crappie, Hybrid Striped Bass, catfish and trout.

Waterfowl frequent Fort Patrick Henry Lake at Warriors Path. The forests in the park are home to many songbirds.

There are two miles of horseback riding along scenic woodland trails in the park.


The park has 134 campsites, all with tables and grills, and 94 have water and electric hookups. The other 40 sites are located in the overflow campground which is only open from Memorial Day - Labor Day.

Modern bathhouses provide hot showers and lavatories. There are two dumping stations available for self-contained RVs and Trailer rigs. The length of stay is two weeks year-round. The campground check-in station is near the campground entrance. For more info call 423-239-7141.
