I visited Red Clay when I was in town seeing family members. My uncle brought us there for the day along with my nieces and we had a great time. There is a lot of hiking in the area (not too difficult, but still a good trek) and it's absolutely beautiful. It was also fascinating to learn about the Cherokee... More

This is a small but beautiful park. We visited this park for a Native American Pow Wow and it was wonderful. There are buildings that you can tour that date back early 1900's.

Red Clay is a great historical park to take your family. There is picnic areas, fields to run and play in for the kids, and Indian history. They also offer special events from time to time. It is a great place to visit if you are in the area.

Great historical park. Very serene. Trails to walk with old wooden buildings along the pathway, along with explanations regarding "The Trail of Tears" and what the buildings were used for. A small museum is on the premises. Indian Pow Wow held annually. Very nice little park.

The wonderful park that is Red Clay State Historic Park is hallowed ground which recreates and remembers the proud people who once inhabited this area. The park is located on the Tennessee-Georgia border and nestled among the beautiful landscape that is southeastern Tennessee. The park has several walking paths and hiking trails which are well maintained and easy to follow.... More

I have two children 5 and 7. We go to Red Clay almost every month and hike the trails. It's fun and It's free! My kids enjoy wading in the stream and climbing on the old Indian homes.

We enjoy visiting and walking the trails. There was a group sitting and singing beside the buildings. The stream is beautiful. In the past, we've seen children catching salamanders there. This time, we saw a huge moth on the trail.

Good place to spend a little quiet time, take a walk. Historic buildings on site, and the 'blue hole' is interesting. Unfortunately, the visitors center was closed even though my visit was during 'open' hours.
