Beautiful TN Park in the autumn, trails covered in golden, brown and red leaves. It was like going back in time.

The park location is quite off the beaten path. But it is worth the effort to get to it. I toured the site on a ranger-led program and that was worthwhie. It should definitely be visited if you have any interest in the Cherokee period here. But I would have to admit that if you are just looking for a park to go to, you can probably find locations that will be easier to reach. There is no admission for this state park

I don’t usually leave bad reviews but, this place got me mad. We arrived about 12 noon. The sign on the museum door said they will be back at 1pm so we did a walk around the park and read the interactive signs. Went back to the office/museum and waited until 1:30pm. No one showed up. Called the listed number for the ranger and there was no answer. I think this is a poor way to treat tourist with limited time to see the sights. They should have just put up a sign saying it was closed for the day. We left very unhappy.

It is not the biggest park but it is a very history interesting park. They have a couple buildings to show what middle class Cherokees would have lived like. A lady in the main house who was sewing a pair of moccasins was full of history and explained that to us. Plus they have the flame on the hill for all the Cherokees who parishes along the trail of tears this was also a camp for when they would have stayed before being sent to the trail of tears. So its a interesting park.

This scenic park is a must visit. The beautiful land the Cherokee owned is on display here. Their culture was amazing. The park is well kept. The Trail of Tears is hard to fathom.
