Southport Cave

Lynnville, Tennessee

Backcountry site, pitch your own tent!

We offer tent camping in a forest setting. Several caves, springs, streams, bluffs, wildlife, and views make for a great camping. Covered picnic table area, benches, firepit, and outhouse available. Great hiking in the area with unique cave right next to site. The cave itself was mined for potassium nitrate during the Civil War. The nitrate was one of the ingredients used to make black powder. Several old dates and names are in the cave. David Crockett got his Saltpetre from this cave. Upland hardwood forest with many varieties of trees, plants, and wildflowers. Great for watching wildlife!
