Very nice park especially with the new level, concrete pads. Our 39'fifth wheel easily fit with room for our truck parked sideways in front. I will give this state a 9-10 if the pool was not closed due to budget cuts and the showers were a little updated. Showers were clean even on a holiday weekend where the park was full. However, each shower has a curtain with a common changing area. Staff was very friendly. This is a hidden gem just off 1-75. We would definitely return. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park has gone downhill in past couple of years. We've stayed here many big summer holidays over the past 15 years. This year the bath/shower houses were filthy, even more than one would expect during a high usage period. Toilet paper and paper towel holders were empty for many hours. New concrete pads are OK but not level. Prices have gone up about 25% since last year. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was an overnight stop for us after picking up our motorcycle tent trailer and the first time we have stopped at a Tennessee State Park. Sites appear to have been recently redone with concrete parking pads with some sites still having the wooden forms around them. Parking pads are very narrow with about 6 inches of clearance on either side of our dually truck. Campground roads are also narrow and as an owner of a big rig and long time full timer, I would not consider this campground big rig friendly. The parking pads had big drop offs on either side. The picnic table and water were located in peculiar locations, well away from the actual camping pad. We had a bit of a problem figuring out which picnic table was associated with our site. We finally discovered a number on the picnic table pad that was covered with grass clippings. Electric was adequate and Verizon cell worked well. Bathhouse was old and one must dress out in the open after showering. There is a small lake filled with Canadian geese. It was quite the spectacle in the morning with lots of noise and bird droppings in about 1/3 of the campground loop. Not sure how anyone could sleep through that noise as they were surrounding several RVs. Maintenance workers began mowing and weed eating at 7:00 probably because of the extreme heat. Overall, it was a ok stay with very nice neighbors. There are some interesting turns on the roads getting to the campground. One turn was immediately following a raised railroad crossing. It was a lovely looking state park and we would consider returning if we were using our motorcycle tent trailer but we would not stay in our 37 ft 5th wheel. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Tent.

Tips for other Campers:

This campground is just a couple of miles off I-75. Jellico is a very small town and it appears most of the amenities are closer to the interstate.

Kudos to the state of Tennessee and the city of Jellico for reclaiming this beautiful area from an abandoned surface mine. This is one of the prettiest state parks we've visited in Tennessee. As other reviewers have mentioned, the sites appear to be recently updated with new concrete pads. New landscaping is in progress, with many new trees planted in and around campsites. Many huge, old sycamore trees add to the beautiful surroundings. There are lots of grassy areas, and sites are well-spaced. We saw people kayaking on the lake. The camp store has paddle boats and fishing boats for rent. There are 2 nice playground areas. Bring mosquito repellant. As you would expect with water, grass and trees, the mosquitos have an ideal atmosphere for breeding. The campground wasn't full. The only down side is that there seems to be considerable traffic continuously passing through the campground. Most people are respectful and drive slowly. Biking requires considerable caution at times. We have 40 ft motorhome and had no problems navigating the roads or our campsite. FYI - we didn't have a tow vehicle but there isn't an option for NA on the tow vehicle questions in this review. Our site was just long enough for our RV. A tow vehicle would be manageable but would require some finesse to position. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

The camp store is very small with a few cold drinks, ice cream, firewood, t-shirts and other souvenirs. Staff was helpful.

Just needed place to park for night while on road. In Class-C. Nice concrete level pads, spacious and open, with a fire ring. Clean grounds. Saw workers pouring concrete for more pads.

Would definitely stay again. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We loved our stay at Indian Mountain. Stopped for one night on our way home from a 30-day trip and decided to stay an extra night! Park is perfect for relaxing and taking in the scenic views. Our handicapped site was fully paved with concrete. Hookups were easy to access. Trash cans placed conveniently by the road between campsites. Wonderful paths for walking. Pet friendly. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Try the Heritage Pizza place. Delicious and inexpensive. Enjoyed the quaintness of the little village of Jellico. Convenient to I-75.

Have stayed here numerous times over the past 13 years. I gave the restrooms a clean rating based on cumulative experience. Most recent stay was 4th of July so restrooms were well used with all that comes with that. Recent improvements are a number of concrete pads with patio pad. Reservations need to be made well in advance of holidays. The park is in a small town and it's common for locals to cruise thru so traffic is moderate to heavy. Trash is emptied from central cans several times daily. During non-holidays the park is peaceful and quiet with several sites normally available. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park, but I had two problems with it which resulted in my low rating. First, I tried calling, repeatedly, for two days, just to make sure that they would have an open site. No one ever answered the phone, but instead they gave you a voice mail box in which to leave a message, stating that they would return the call. They never returned any of my calls. We finally decided to get off I-75 and actually drive to the park, hoping that they had a site available. They did, and in fact, there were only two other RV's there, so I don't know how they could have been too busy to answer the phone, or to return phone calls. Second, most parks restrict the camping areas to campers, and tell day users to keep out and utilize the day use areas only. Not here. Although there were only a total of three RV's sites in use, including mine, the camping area was packed with people using the sites for picnics, playing ball, using the playground, and driving around and around while blasting their stereos. In fact, two sites that I was interested in were being used by picnickers, so I had to pass them by. All in all, the park is nice, but is in need of new management to make it a bit more camper friendly. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Well groomed, very nice park with paved spaces far enough apart to provide some privacy. Sites mostly level, some with big trees. No pull-throughs. Clean restrooms and very nice play areas. Small lake with paddle boat rentals. Register at the boat office. Stayed here one night on my way through Tennessee. Would like to come back and stay longer. The only negative is lots of tame ducks, which is nice, but you have to watch your step some places to avoid the droppings. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We came to this campground expecting to stay overnight, and we stayed for five nights. This is a beautiful park, with large sites, plenty of green grass and a view of the mountains. There are picnic tables and fire rings at each site, a paved walking trail, and pond with pedal boats for rent. There is a swimming pool although I did not see it. The campground makes a good base camp for excursions to attractions in the area. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a well-kept secret by the citizens of Jellico. I think they like to keep it for themselves. We found it when we had a mishap with our tow dolly and had to stay somewhere while waiting to get it repaired. It is a very nice, friendly park. The sites are large, clean, and well maintained. The people are friendly and will help with anything you need help with. We stay every time we travel near it. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.
