Paris Landing State Park is an 841 acre park located on the western shore of the Tennessee River, which is dammed to form Kentucky Lake (160,000 acres). The park sits on the widest part of the lake (3 miles wide) and is the perfect location for all water sports such as fishing, boating, swimming, and skiing. On land, there is plenty of activity with golfing, hiking, camping, or just relaxing and enjoying the natural beauty and wildlife. Be on the lookout for deer, turkey, fox, and coyote that roam the park. Eagles can be seen in the winter months.

Historical SignificanceDating back to the 1800's, when the river landing was an important spot for the delivery of goods to serve the settlements of the region and an important shipping point for produce and other agricultural products, the site has long afforded good access along the Tennessee River. Created in 1945, Paris Landing State Park was named for a steamboat and freight landing on the Tennessee River.
