New Firewood Policy – Effective June 1, 2016 - DON’T MOVE FIREWOOD In order to protect our forests and trees from invasive insects and diseases, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Please refrain from bringing untreated wood into the park. Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase from concessioners in many of the campgrounds as well as from vendors in the communities around the park. Certified heat-treated firewood is clearly marked with a state or federal seal. The Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive pests are a growing threat to the forests of Tennessee and the surrounding region.

Gorgeous state park! Definitely check out the blue hole trail. Twin falls is on the other side of the river and is absolutely amazing. If you’re in the area definitely stop by.

Make sure you wear sturdy shoes that you won't mind getting wet-- the rocks are sharp, but you'll definitely want to go for a swim :)
