We were able to use the park for a Campout. Wide open. Nice amphitheater. A pool onsite but wasn't open. It is next to the hospital and in the middle of town but you wouldn't know it. Stop here and enjoy the history.

Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park protects the land that was the location of several important historic events that occurred in the late 18th century. Leaving the English colonies, settlers began arriving along the Watauga Old Fields, in search of a new life on what was Cherokee land.The park offers quality educational programs throughout the year telling the stories of the Watauga Association, Transylvania Purchase, Cherokee War of 1776, the Overmountain Men and so much more! John Carter, one of the primary political, military and business leaders of this era, and his son Landon, built a home, the Carter Mansion, three miles from Sycamore Shoals. This structure is the oldest standing frame house in Tennessee, dating back to the mid to late 1770s.
