Cherokee National Forest
Park Overview
Tennessee's only National Forest, the Cherokee, covers nearly 630,000 acres in ten East Tennessee counties. It is the largest tract of public land in the State. The forest is separated into two parts by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Discover the 30 developed campgrounds, 30 picnic areas, 700 miles of trail, hundreds of miles of cold water streams, seven whitewater rivers, thousands of acres of dispersed opportunties, and abundant populations of wildlife that are here for your enjoyment.

Great wilderness yet close to everything
The Cherokee National Forest is a great place to get back to nature and still be close to everything you might need. Get lost but still within reach!
