Start your morning on (or in) the water! Throw in your line at the Cumberland River, one of the world’s top catfishing spots! On the Cumberland or Red Rivers – or many of their offshoot creeks and streams -- you can fish, boat, waterski or tube to your heart’s content. Kayak or canoe up to 14 miles on the Clarksville Blueway. Try lunch at Liberty Park Grill overlooking the Clarksville Marina.
Golf and Disc Golf Tee off at any of Clarksville’s six golf courses. Swan Lake is a municipal course set adjacent to the scenic Dunbar Cave State Natural Area. Or, bring the whole family for a fun disc golf outing at Rotary Park or the Clarksville Regional Airport.
Trails Hike three miles of easy-to-moderate trails and explore the cave at the 110-acre Dunbar Cave State Park. Take along a picnic and enjoy watching the turtles, ducks and geese. To burn more calories, tackle nine miles of paved trails by foot or bike at the Clarksville Greenway, an abandoned rail bed featuring bluffs, a creek, canopied trees and farm landscapes. Explore downtown starting with a one-mile RiverWalk along the Cumberland. Take a few moments and relish a swing overlooking the river! Then, continue your trek and wind upwards into historic downtown via the connecting Upland Trail and Spur Line Trailhead where you’ll see historic buildings and cross two former railroad trestles.
Grab lunch on Franklin Street or Strawberry Alley. For lighter fare and refreshing fresh-fruit smoothies, try Yada Yada Yada Deli. Or, tackle the beer cheese, a flatbread pizza and craft beer at Blackhorse Brewery & Pub.
Mountain Biking Rotary Park offers a 5.2-mile singletrack mountain mile trail offering portions to accommodate beginner to expert. The North Ford Street Mountain Bike Park feature a 3-trail for intermediate to advanced riders.

This worldclass dynamic facility on 126 rural acres offers sporting clays, traps, skeet, tactical pistol ranges, 3-D archery and more. For the true Southside experience, bring a hearty appetite to the Southside General Store for some of the tastiest pork barbecue around. For dinner, enjoy catfish with all the fixins at The Catfish House, or try a delectable creation at Roux Americajun.
