South Cumberland State Park
Open: Open all year
South Cumberland is one of the newer Tennessee State Parks. Almost all of our park lies atop the Cumberland Plateau and, unlike most state parks, ours is made up of ten different areas located in four different counties. The Visitor Center is located between Monteagle and Tracy City on Highway 41. Visitors can also obtain information and directions from the visitor center.
The park has two picnic pavilions. Grundy Forest accommodates around 25 people and the pavillion close to the visitor center holds around 50-60 people.
Campers must use designated sites only. A camping permit is required and can be obtained at the Visitor Center or at the trailheads. The permit instructions must be followed and it must be compeltely filled out. You should leave your campsite in such a condition that no one could tell you have camped there. Cutting of vegetation, littering, trenching, piling of rocks and other activities that detract from the natural beauty are, of course, prohibited.
Water is available from springs and streams except in dry periods. This water must be treated to make it safe for consumption.
Fire: All open fires are prohibited along the trails and at the Raven Point Campsite. This campsite is operated on a stove-only basis. Campfires are permitted at the Small Wilds Campsite, except in very dry conditions.
Permits are required for backcountry backpacking camping.
Currently there are no reviews of this campground.
