“The first park in Tennessee for everybody”

T.O. Fuller State Park was the first state park to open to African Americans east of the Mississippi. There is also evidence of the park’s growing historical significance. During an excavation for a proposed swimming pool in 1940, CCC workers unearthed evidence of prehistoric village, opening the door to a lost and forgotten civilization. The site has since been developed as Chucalissa Indian Village and includes a village, preserved archaeological excavations and a modern museum. The park offers more than six-miles of hiking trails ranging from moderate to rugged. The Discovery Trail is a six-mile continuous loop where visitors have the opportunity to see the Chucalissa Indian Village and Wetlands. Picnicking is also popular with 35 picnic tables and grills located throughout the park. The park has four shelters that can accommodate groups of 40 to 120 people. All shelters have grills, nearby bathroom facilities, picnic tables and electric outlets.

Surrounded by run down neighborhood and power plants(one of which was a sewage plant.) The sewer smell definitely is present but not necessarily overwhelming. Quite and clean. Serves purpose for an overnight stay.
