Beautiful Tennessee State Park. The lake is beautiful and the walking trail is amazing. Picnic area and parking areas are plentiful. There is a very nice camping area. A great place to visit for a day or bring camping gear and stay longer.

Great place for peace & quite. Fun for the whole family. Have camped & hiked there. The Dismal Trail is a must see. Once saw a baby deer and another time a spider that was new to me.

Plenty of bike paths and area to explore. Never seems to be all that busy, good way to pass some time in the area.
