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.

Good for kids and there's historical markings and buildings along the way. Very easy so I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who wants a full workout.

Ran these trails all my life. My dads land is connected to the park. The trails are named after the families that gave them up. Casey/Wilson was my families. Great trials.

Nice 3+ mile hike combining Friend, and Lakeshore trails. Easy with mild elevations. The trail is sand covered in pine needles - easy on the feet. The main challenge today was the temperature of 26 degrees at start of walk.

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 around Lake Placid. Great views of the Lake! Wish I had brought my fishing gear.

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.

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.
