General Information

Paris Landing State Resort Park
Copyright: - Tennessee State Parks
Paris Landing State Resort Park
Description - Paris Landing State Park is named for a steamboat and freight landing on the Tennessee River, dating back to the mid 1800's. From here and other landings on the Tennessee River and Big Sandy River, supplies were transported to surrounding towns and communities by ox cart.

The 841-acre Paris Landing State Park is situated on the western shore of what is now Kentucky Lake, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world.

Attractions - Opened in April 1998, this spacious new facility provides the ideal location for your next trade show, conference, pageant, wedding reception, or banquet. The main room is 143 feet long and 74 feet wide with the ability to be divided into 3 separate rooms. This acoustically sound building will seat 800-1,200 people and serve a full line of food and beverages.

The Paris Landing State Park Golf Course is situated on the western shore of Kentucky Lake, located in the "Land Between the Lakes" area. The course opened in 1971. The entire course is tree-lined, creating a feeling that you are the only one on the course, very rarely seeing another foursome. Several holes skirt the Kentucky Lake producing a natural balance of rolling land, trees, and water. The Signature hole #4, is a downhill 186 yard Par 3 with the Kentucky Lake providing a scenic backdrop.

Since 1995 Golf Digest has awarded this course the 4 Star Award. Through the years Paris Landing has hosted numerous collegiate and high school championships. This picturesque course offers 4 set of tees ranging from 5,321 to 6,685 yards, offering all golfers an enjoyable but challenging round of golf.

Other nearby points of interest are the Tennessee River, Kentucky Lake, Land Between the Lakes, Fort Donelson National Battlefield, National Boy Scout Museum, and the Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge.

Recreation - Park activities include camping, fishing, boating, hiking, picnicking, archery, basketball, horseshoes, a playground, shuffleboard, softball, tennis, volleyball, board games and electronic games.

Climate - Tennessee has a temperate climate with short, mild winters. The average annual snowfall for the state is 12 inches. Spring comes in early March bringing flowering trees and shrubs, and warmer weather. Spring temperatures average between 45 and 70 degrees. Summer's full force arrives in the region by mid May, bringing warm weather and higher humidity. The mountains of eastern Tennessee are a great place to escape the hot summer temperatures as the higher elevation cools the air slightly. Cool fall temperatures bring crisp air and brilliant fall colors. Mid to late October is a good time to visit the region to experience the fall foliage.

Location - The Park is located 18 miles east of Paris, on US Highway 79 or 45 miles West of Clarksville, on US Highway 79.

Report: THERE WAS NO TOUGHT PART TO OUR STAY AT PARIS LANDING STATE PARK RESORT. WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME. FROM OUR ROOM WE WE HAD A WONDERFUL VIEW OF THE LAKE. WE DIDNT GO FAR FROM THE HOTEL, WE ATE OUR MEALS AT THE BUFFET. THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS. IF LOOKING FOR A NICE HOTEL, KID FRIENDLY AND HELPFULL STAFF, THIS WOULD BE THE PLACE. THE ONLY FORK IN THE ROAD WAS THE TEMPATURE. HIGH 90s TO 100s.
