This is a great little state park in northern Tennessee. The only issue with the entire park is geese droppings. I'm not sure how they could manage this issue, but there is goose waste everywhere. Otherwise, the back-in sites are all updated concrete with patios. The shower house has been recently updated as well. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow what a great state park! We ended up staying 6 days we enjoyed it so much. First in site 4 which is a handicap site and fully paved, has a shade tree and overlooks the lake. Just beautiful. Then in site 44 which backs to the trees where we watched the deer. On most sites the picnic table sits on a separate concrete pad from your camper. Management takes real pride in this park and it shows. Lots of mowed grass and was a great place for dogs. There were 4 different playgrounds. A 1 mile paved walking/running path by the lake which was very nice. Bathhouse is updated and clean. Good Verizon and satellite TV. One of the downsides is that the road that goes through the park is used by the locals (those are the sites on the lake). The other is that the concrete at the non-handicap sites are not set up for class A motorhomes with the door in the front because they are wider at the back of the site. That is great for trailers and smaller rigs but not big class A motorhomes. Other than that we really did love this place and would stay again. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Very clean and maintained park. If you camp there stay in the outer loop. We figured out why we were about the only ones on the main road by the lake. They have 2 entrances and it reminded me of A & W and Frishes where people would go in one drive and out the other. It was a steady stream of traffic flying by and a lot of the same cars. Not a good place for kids. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park is a beautifully reclaimed strip mine with a large lake with some sites bordering lake, others on another loop. Mountains surround. Sites nicely spaced with mostly level concrete pads and patio. Four bathhouses in park, the one by lake new, clean, with tan/brown tile. Hot showers. Grounds well mowed healthy grass, nice scattered older trees and many new planted. Rental kayaks and paddle board. Friendly staff. Lots of walking paths and bikers. Nicest TN state park I have stayed at, really exceptional. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Let's start with the bad stuff...there wasn't any bad stuff. I rarely give 5 stars to anything but the most posh resorts. This park was the best state park we have ever stayed at. Great mostly level concrete pads, small camp store, things to do, clean bath houses that looked nearly new, etc. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

This was our second stay here. Both times were good experiences. Clean campground and a nice quiet place. No sewer, but there is a dump station. There were a couple of sites that looked like Handicapped sites (level gravel areas rather than grass). One of these spots appeared to be a pull thru (parallel to the road). They weren't marked as such, but as they have a handicappped discount I think they are trying to make accommodiations for them. We camped at Indian Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.
