Chickasaw State Rustic Park is situated on some of the highest terrain in west Tennessee. Of the area's 14,384 acres of timberland, 1,280 acres are used for recreation. The remainder is state forest managed jointly by the State Forestry Division and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. The park is located in Chester and Hardeman Counties, 18 miles south of Jackson, Tennessee on State Hwy. 100.

It's a nice little trail that loops the lake. Very easy trail with a few bridges. You can spot several birds and turtles if you're lucky. Take the whole family on this hike for a fun afternoon.

This is an easy loop trail featuring some impressive pines probably planted in the 1930's by CCC camp workers when the park was originally constructed. You can make this into a good day hike by adding the lake loop and friends loop.

This is a nice short loop featuring some impressive white oak trees, old log cabin and still.

Easy, 1.5 mile trail around the lake with pretty views. Also lots of geese and goslings around the lake that were cute. Several piers to walk out on. Half or more of the trail is in forest. There is a great footbridge that spans the middle of the lake, but it was under repairs when we were there.
