“A beautiful reclaimed wasteland”

The park has a history and origin different from that of any other Tennessee State Park. Utilizing grants from the state of Tennessee, the Appalachian Regional Commission, and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, the park was developed as a reclamation project in which abandoned strip mining pits were converted to recreational use. As a reclaimed surface mine Indian Mountain exhibits a beneficial use that can be made of land after such intensive alterations as those inherent in surface mining. Indian Mountain State Park currently maintains a campground with 49 fully equipped campsites, three picnic pavilions, and a large swimming pool. Indian Mountain Lake and several ponds in the park are stocked with catfish, bluegill, large-mouthed bass, and crappie to provide fishing opportunities. Pedal boats are available for rent on Indian Mountain Lake. Several athletic fields are located along London Avenue in the northeast section of the park. Two official walking trails meander through the park on both sides of Elk Creek. The Indian Mountain Lake Trail is a paved 1-mile (1.6 km) loop that wraps around the east bank of Indian Mountain Lake. The .75-mile (1.21 km) Ballard Lake Nature Trail loops along the forested banks of Ballard Lake.
