Indian Mountain State Park
Along with Cove Lake and Norris Lake, Campbell County residents also enjoy Indian Mountain State Park, which is located on the Tennessee-Kentucky border 3 miles west of Interstate 75 at exit 160 and within the city limits of Jellico, Tennessee.
The two hundred thirteen (213) acre park began as an abandoned strip mine. It quickly became an unattractive safety hazard to the City of Jellico and its residents. Local officials, aware of the problems which the stripped area presented, began an effort to gain assistance to reclaim the site and develop it into a useful and attractive recreational area.
