“Great place for a family reunion.”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Excellent gathering areas for get togethers. Spaced out well so you are not right on top of others. Serene lake, great wilderness walking path, well maintained. The family has used this place for years and years and it is always easy in and out. Clean and decently comfortable.

“not a comfortable place”
Reviewed 17 October 2012

we have camped for many years all over the u.s. and i can honestly say this is one place where we did not feel comfortable. it was a weekend, and it seemed that the most popular pastime for locals was driving thru the park. there was a constant stream of cars and trucks passing by. at one point a pickup pulled up at the bath house and the three young guys took turns showering. there is a gate at the entrance but it did not prevent anyone from entering after hours. not going back there.

“Beautiful Park”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

This was a great site for our family reunion. Beautiful trails. Well maintained park. I was happy to see Jellico take pride in their park. Nice view of Indian Mountain.

“Great for hiking”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

Beautiful trails, picnicking, or just eating lunch in the car if the weather is bad, it is a lovely park.

“A great example of man's partnership with nature”
Reviewed 3 December 2007

IMSP, near the Kentucky and Tennessee border in Jellico, TN (about 10 minutes off the I-75 exit), is located on an abandoned strip mine. Needless to say, there’s not a lot of shade in the campsites, however the picnic sites are located under shade. When life gives you lemons you make lemonade. Its evident that a lot of restoration has gone into this park. Kudos to the Tennessee State Park folks for its excellent restoration project. This park (as well as Gee Creek at Hiwassee State Scenic River) serves as proof that nature can be restored with man’s help. It’s a beautiful park worth visiting, but in 5 years it will be really nice park for rest and relaxation. Stay tuned.
