A beautiful blue natural spring used by native Americans, nice hiking trails, a very nice pavilion with a wonderful stone fireplace. What more could you ask for? It's a very nice place to spend a relaxing sunny afternoon. Just bring a quilt, a good book and a picnic basket.

I enjoyed learning about the importance of this are to the Native American population of this area. The cabin area has a video played upon request explaining the history. There is a great nature trail as well. A word of warning, a portion of the trail is uphill, so anyone massively out of shape might have difficulty on the trail... More

This is a great place to go for a walk or a short hike and even to learn about history. Whether planning a day to hammock, picnic or to reflect, it's a great learning experience and definitely worth a visit!!

Very quiet and peaceful here, a really good place to take a leisurely walk. Nice places to picnic and occasionally someone will be there playing Indian music in the theatre. Great place to plan church outings with their covered tables.

So peaceful and tranquil. Stepping where the Indians once lived. Walking through history. Reading the tea of yester year.

We spent many hours at Red Clay when our daughters were young. Now we go for a relaxing afternoon of hiking or just an outing when we have company. Love the beauty, the old buildings, and hikes.

I can't even begin to tell all the wonderful things that they have at this park but the best is the people. Really great people in the visitors center. So if you're looking for a Beautiful place where the people are just as beautiful go to red clay.
