For the non-camper, this is an excellent state park with several trails that are not difficult. The most popular trails are easy/moderate and afford nice overlooking views of the lake. The trails are not well-marked, but the experienced hiker can figure them out. This is...More

Tim's Ford has a lot of great bike trails. They also have a shady peaceful playground. The pool is also a great things to do while you are there. Ice cream in the camp store. Tim's Ford is a great place to go and relax.
