The Trapper’s Cabin

The Trapper’s Cabin in the Settlement at Discovery Park includes fun, whimsical decor with a nod to David Crockett and other early West Tennessee trappers and hunters. Inside the two rooms of the cabin, guests will find a variety of preserved and mounted animals on display along with some of the tools and furnishing used by early settlers. The Trapper’s Cabin is also furnished with comfortable leather sofas and rocking chairs to provide a relaxing place to rest, charge phones or cool down during a visit to Discovery Park. Also currently on display in the Trapper’s Cabin is an assortment of drawings by the late Jubie Henderson, a respected woodcarver and wildlife artist from Fulton, Ky. Day-long access to the Trapper’s Cabin is only available in the Explorer Plus package.

It’s also available for parties and special events when Discovery Park is closed to the public.
