The Old stone Fort State Archaeological Park is a state park, historical area, and archaeological site in Manchester, Tennessee. It is best noted for being the site of the Old Stone Fort, a National Register of Historic Places site.

The Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park was created in order to preserve and protect the historic site. The Old Stone Fort is actually a two thousand year-old Native American ceremonial site. It is named after a series of walls made of stone and earthwork rising to an average of 4-6 feet high. The first settlers thought that the site was an old fort, thus the name, although later research has proven it to be a misnomer.

Today, the site is best known as a camping area. Boating, fishing, hiking, and picnicking can also be enjoyed. There?s also a museum at the site.
