“The perfect park on the east bank of the Tennessee River”

Tradition has it that Mousetail Landing received its name during the Civil War period when one of the area’s tanning companies caught fire. The exodus of mice fleeing the burning tannery was so profuse that the area in proximity of the park became known as Mousetail Landing. Fishing is permitted anywhere you can reach water. Bass, bream, crappie, stripe and catfish can be caught along the banks. The park has one day-use, three-mile trail. There is one overnight, eight-mile trail with two screened shelters. These back-country shelters have plywood bunks and each shelter sleeps eight people.  Mousetail Landing State Park has 25 picnic tables with grills located throughout the park. There is one large pavilion that can accommodate 100 people available for rent along with a gazebo that is a often used for weddings. Also located within the park are several archeological ruins, including the original landing pier, a blacksmith shop, and a cemetery.

My favorite place to go camping. Two sides to the camping area - primitive or non-primitive. The Park Rangers are great and the facilities are clean. We have camped on the primitive side for years. Easy access to the Tenn River and a beautiful site to wake up and watch the sunrise.
