Dunbar Cave State Park
Dunbar Cave State Park is located 60 minutes northwest of Nashville and about one and a half miles northeast of downtown Clarksville, Tennessee in Montgomery County. Fishing
Angling is a popular activity on beautiful Swan Lake. The lake is fed by the cold, clear stream that flows from the mouth of Dunbar Cave. Since it is only 15-acres in size, boating and swimming are not permitted. A valid TN Fishing License is required.
Hiking Trails - There are three trails on the natural area that range from a leisurely walk to a fairly strenuous hike. All trails begin and end at the visitors' center.
Lake Trail: 0.67 mile (easy, partially paved)
Short Loop: 1.1 miles (moderate)
Recovery Trail: 1.9 miles (moderate)
Natural Area -This 110-acre natural area in Montgomery County is honeycombed by Dunbar Cave and numerous sinkholes. The 8.1 mile cave has historical, natural, archaeological and geological significance. Excavations revealed that this cave has been occupied by man for thousands of years, drawn by its constant stream flow and natural air conditioning.
Picnic Facilities -The park has seven picnic tables located just behind the visitors' center on a hill overlooking scenic Swan Lake.
Picnic area is not wheelchair accessible.
