Description - Indian Mountain State Park is a multi-use facility in Campbell County near Tennessee's northern border. Although the park's name would indicate that it is located on a mountain, it is actually located at the base of the mountain and most visitors would agree that it is one of Tennessee's most beautiful parks.
- In addition to providing camping and recreation opportunities, the 200-acre park is unique in that it was developed on reclaimed strip mine land.
Other points of interest are the Norris Dam State Park, Lenoir Pioneer Museum, Cove Lake State
Park and Big Ridge State Park.
Recreation - Park visitors can enjoy fishing at the two small lakes, walking on two trails, picnicking, camping, and swimming opportunities. The park offers the visitor the opportunity to view a variety of wildlife that includes deer, beaver, opossums, raccoons, snakes, rabbits, squirrels and waterfowl.
Climate - Tennessee has a temperate climate with short, mild winters. The average annual snowfall for the state is 12 inches. Spring comes in early March bringing flowering trees and shrubs, and warmer weather. Spring temperatures average between 45 and 70 degrees. Summer's full force arrives in the region by mid May, bringing warm weather and higher humidity. The mountains of eastern Tennessee are a great place to escape the hot summer temperatures as the higher elevation cools the air slightly. Cool fall temperatures bring crisp air and brilliant fall colors. Mid to late October is a good time to visit the region to experience the fall foliage.
From I-75 near Jellico, take Exit 160 and go north on U.S. Hwy. 25 to State Hwy. 297, make a right on London and a left on Dairy Street. This will lead you to the entrance of the park. The route to the park is well marked.
