Fall Bonfire with the Friends of Long Hunter - Long Hunter State Park

  • Long Hunter State Park

    2910 Hobson Pike, Hermitage, TN (map)

    36.107889 -86.539778

  • Meet Jill and the Friends of Long Hunter at Group Camp 1 (behind the park office)
  • Meeting Time: 6:00 PM
    Meeting Place: Group Camp 1 (behind the park office)
    Estimated Event Time: 3 hours

    Come enjoy the fall weather and crackling bonfire at Long Hunter State Park! No one wanted the wildly popular Campfire Nights to end, so the Friends of Long Hunter group decided to continue the tradition with the Fall Bonfire Series. This will likely be the final one of the year.

    We’ve kept the laid-back vibe and potluck format, but added some crisp autumn weather. The Long Hunter Gang will provide the fire, the big field and relaxed atmosphere. We invite you to bring musical instruments, games, stories, frisbees, telescopes, or any other campfire-appropriate items. If you know any musicians/pickers, please invite them! And feel free to bring along snacks, s’mores fixins’, dishes/drinks/desserts to share.

    This event is sponsored by the Friends of Long Hunter State Park (http://friendsoflonghunter.com).

    Long Hunter's campfire events are often unpredictable. For example, at one program an attendee brought a telescope to the campfire and the group was treated to stunning views of Saturn. And during another program several people witnessed a shooting star overhead. And we've also had lively bluegrass bands show up and play late into the night. In addition, we often see and hear some interesting wildlife.

    The fall bonfires are suitable for the entire family. Feel free to bring along your own food and beverages. This campfire event will likely go until at least 9 p.m., so if you can't get there at exactly 6 p.m., you're welcome to stop by later.

    Kids are welcome, as are well-behaved pets on leashes.

    Directions to Long Hunter Group Camp 1 & Parking Info:

    Enter Long Hunter State Park at the main park entrance (2910 Hobson Pike) and take the first right, which is the park office parking lot. The campfire will be in the large Group Camp 1 field behind the park office.

    At the back end of the park office parking lot you will find a gravel road that will lead you to the group camp right beside the fire pit. Just look for the other cars parked in the field near the campfire.

    For further directions or park information, call the park office at[masked]-2422.

    I hate to cancel, but it's too wet for us. The heavy misting doesn't show up on the radar.
