For more details on what to do in the park, where to stay, and nearby attractions worth visiting, read on.
The picturesque Duck River flows through Henry Horton State Park and is as good a place as any to start your camping adventure. Its waters are home to smallmouth and largemouth bass, catfish, and redeye, making it a popular destination for keen anglers. Small boats are welcome on the river, but it's also quite easy to cast a line from the shore.
If you'd prefer to set out on foot and explore your wooded surroundings, ten miles of trails meander throughout the park. The Adeline Wilhoite River Trail Loop, a hike of moderate difficulty that follows the Duck River for just over a mile and a half, is a popular trail that also leads to a wetland observation tower. If you're keen to get a taste of local history, the Wilhoite Mill Trail leads you through hardwood forest and old farm fields to the location of a former mill which was built in the 1840s.
Natural attractions aside, there are also plenty of man-made activities to enjoy in Henry Horton State Park. The highlight for many visitors is the Buford Ellington championship golf course, which is surrounded by beautiful hardwood forest. At more than 7,000 yards long and boasting 37 bunkers, it's a demanding course — so you might want to tackle the challenge a few times during your stay.
If you prefer a different type of golf, you and the rest of the family might like to take on the 18-hole disc golf course, which is not only free but also a whole lot of fun. And with an Olympic-sized swimming pool and a trap and skeet shooting range also provided, there's a range of exciting activities keep campers of all ages entertained.

Dog lovers are also well catered for, and leashed pets are welcome in the campground.
