Beautiful Indian Mountain State Park in Campbell County is full of surprises. First, it’s located at the base of the mountain, not on the top. And, it is the first park in the Southeast to use reclaimed abandoned mining sites as parkland.
The city of Jellico originally bought the land in the late 1960s as part of a federal open space grant. Additional grants funded the conversion of abandoned strip mining pits for recreational use.
This is a popular park for camping, picnicking and wildlife watching.
Two small lakes and several ponds provide swimming and fishing opportunities for the park visitors. A number of fish species including bluegill, large-mouth bass, crappie and catfish await the successful angler. Pedal boats and fishing boats are available for rent.
