The views and picnic tables are the main attractions. There are plenty of informational signs to tell you what you are looking at. Only down side is that it is a long drive through residential territory that does not look good.

Campground was immaculate. Well kept bathrooms & easy access to trails, playground, other activities. The picnic area at the top of the ridge has great views. All around just a great place for a weekend trip.

This park not only has camping, but one can also rent cabins here. There are many hiking trails and well as easy assessable overlooks. A fun park to visit.

Took a drive to Morristown TN to go to Panther Creek State Park. It was definitely worth the drive from Knoxville. Beautiful scenery, lakes, deer, trails. Great peaceful picnic area. We will go again!

Our family enjoys visiting this park a few times a year for a picnic. There is a campground and trails for walking and horseback riding. The view at the top of the park is spectacular.

Great place to walk, run, and/or ride bikes on trails. Also, nice camping if desired. We used tents to camp and then walked across the street to use some very nice showers/bathroom. Played volleyball, went to the pool, went running, and enjoyed camping.

The campground is user friendly and very clean. Plenty of room between sites. Most sites have shade trees. Bath house is clean, roomy, and private. There are a few walking trails close by.
