Big Hill Pond State Park lies in the southwestern part of McNairy County and encompasses approximately 5,000 acres of magnificent timberland and hardwood bottom land. Cypress Creek and Tuscumbia River border the property. Several oxbow lakes and sloughs add to the waterway. The flood plain adjacent to both the Tuscumbia River and Cypress Creek contains small oxbow lakes and swamp areas which are desirable habitat for waterfowl, wildlife and fishing.

great hike. the lookout tower is a must see. lots of big boulders. really gave you the feeling of being in the mountains.

I just did an 'out and back' hike to the Tuscumbia Shelter, a little over 6 mi RT. Lots of wildlife, saw 12 deer, ducks, geese and listened to owls all night while camping at the CG. Climbed the firetower for some awesome views. Good trail, well marked, varied terrain.

Very scenic trail. Good trail markings. The park rangers were very helpful.

I have hiked this trail so many times I can't keep count

Loved it! Awesome view! Needs a little upkeep on Boardwalk, but was definable worth the hike! Watch out for snakes...walked up on a large Cottonmouth...threw him back down hill.

The hike was awesome. The view from the observation tower was even better! Can't wait to go back.
