Enjoyed our visit the 2nd week of October. Must eat at the Barbaque restaurant. Best ribs in the country. Great music on Monday and Thursday night. We toured the Applician museum in Clinton. 12 miles. Very nice.

Great place to run, walk or camp. Really enjoyed running the trails, the went back to walk the dogs. Very quiet, lots of people walking and running, but now crowded. Lots of green.

Live near this beautiful State Park which is nestled in the foothills of beautiful mountains. This day use park has walking trails, great picnic areas, overnight camping and other outdoor recreational activities. Family friendly.

This is a large & beautiful park. It has many parvillions that can be reserved along with a pool, tennis court, volleyball court, basketball court, dock to fish off of, etc.... On the day of our visit there were multiple family reunions & picnic's going on. There is also a restaurant at the area close to the park's office.

Got to our campsite early on Friday and left on Monday afternoon. Shortly after we got there a worker came along an hosed down the picnic area. The camp ground was full but the sites are plenty big enough that you are not right on top of your neighbor. Just had a great relaxing long weekend. nice trails and views... More

Drove through the campground and campsites can accommodate larger RVs on some. Electric and water on site with dump station located at campground entrance. Cafe located in park but didn't stop there. Nice clean park, getting ready for Labor Day weekend.

Splendid scenery abounds! Quiet and beautiful. Great walking paths and the BBQ place on-site offers great food at a great price in an upscale casual setting.

This park is like 30 miles from Knoxville and its ideal for having picnic and fun. You can bring your food or purcharse in the restaurants all along the road. You can sit, relax and have a great lunch with family. There are a few trails, so you can go for a walk
