            PARKS          RELOCATION


The Port Royal State Park is a 26-acre park located on one of the oldest colonial settlements in Tennessee, dating back to the 1780s. The town of Port Royal was also a stopover for Cherokee Indians on the Trail of Tears from 1838-39. Every year, the park holds a commemorative ceremony to honor the Trail of Tears. Still preserved at the park today is an early Pratt truss bridge built in 1887 over the Sulphur Fork Creek. The area is popular for fishing, hiking, canoeing and bird watching; Belted Kingfishers, raptors, and Eastern Bluebirds can be spotted seasonally.

The Dunbar Cave State Park is a 110-acre park where visitors can enjoy hiking, picnics, and fishing in Swan Lake. It is also the site of Dunbar Cave, an 8-mile long cave which is the largest in Montgomery County and the 280th largest in the world. Ancient Native American petroglyphs, or rock art, were discovered in the cave in 2005, however cave tours have been suspended since 2010 due to White Nose Syndrome discovered in some bats.


The Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park is an 863 acre resort within a 15,000 acre forest and became part of the Kentucky State Parks system in 1954. There is a 56 acre lake for fishing, boating, and swimming, 18 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, an 18 hole golf course, and tennis and basketball courts. Nearby the resort is an area just for equestrian camping.

The Round Table Literary Park was started by Hopkinsville Community College Professor Frances G. Thomas and her group of students in 1974 as a place for their annual literary awards ceremony. Hidden away in the woods near campus are replicas of King Arthur's Sword in the Stone and his Round Table and over the years an amphitheatre and various statues have been added, including a Medieval Wall and a Delphian Tholos temple.

The War Memorial Walking Trail is a nearly mile-long trail with markers representing each conflict and war the U.S. has been part of, including a special monument to the Vietnam War and a poem written to soldiers. The park contains picnic tables and benches for visitors who want to stop and picnic along the trail.
