to stop and remember those who were here before we were this is a very nice place. park rangers are available to answer any questions and the small museum indoors is very informative. you can find a nice place to have a picnic. I actually felt kind of sad like there are still Indian spirits there that need their story... More

Lovely park, hiking, a stream and small pool and history! I had to come back a second time to see everything and take a second hike. Lovely area and plenty to read and learn about. If you haven't been here before you are missing out!

We stopped here yesterday on the way home. What a beautiful little park. My children enjoyed the historical homes on site and the eternal flame. The short hike out to the Blue Hole was beautiful. A must see for anyone who enjoys history.

It was very interesting to see various Indian housing and tribal meeting areas. The only thing that we we're disappointed with was the Park Office told us that it was open until 5pm, and it closed a 1/2 hour early. We wanted to watch a video about the Trail of Tears, but were unable to.

Red Clay is a very historically significant place for the Cherokee Indian. The site is also home to a large spring and several buildings, which are a reconstruction of buildings that would have existed on the site at the time of the Cherokee Indian Removal (1838). The museum was closed the time of our visit, but it is regarded as... More

Red Clay is the sight of the last seat of the Cherokee National Government before the Trail of Tears. Red Clay is where the Trail of Tears really began. There are woods, fields, a stream and the Blue Hole that compromise the 200+ acre facility. The Blue Hole is a spring below a limestone ledge where the water is always... More

Neat, clean, historical and clever, this little park brings together all the elements to teach the history of the Cherokee Native Americans. There is an eternal flame for the Cherokee Nation, and a spring that I have been visiting for thirty years. It is also a creative, relaxing park that won't mind a frisbee thrown about. They have recently added... More

We went here for a morning walk . Ended up learning some history . Talked to a man carving the totems of the 7 clans of the Cherokee out of a tree that was struck by lightening. Nice place to spend a few hours .
