Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: This park is a great balance between the brief but ever-so important history of Sycamore Shoals and great hiking. There are points along the trail to help hikers understand what occurred at Sycamore Shoals and why it was so important. This park also has an amphitheater which hosts all sorts of events. More information on this park and many more can be found at the TN State Parks website.

SSSHA is a nice stop in Elizabethton, TN. If you are interested in Revolutionary War and Native American history, then the interpretive center is worth a visit. The exhibits allow you to absorb information real easily. The site is part of the Overmountain Victory Trail, which accounts the revolutionary war in the ‘western front’. The fort located on the premises is worth a visit as well. There are no camping, but you are close to Davy Crockett Birthplace SP, Roan Mountain SP, and the BlueRidge Parkway: many places to lay your head.
