Big South Fork Located northwest of Knoxville, Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area is a hidden treasure of outdoor fun and breathtaking scenery. Outdoor recreation is wide-ranging in the natural area. Over 130 miles of trails are open to horseback riders; two horse camps are located in the park. Fishing is a big draw on the river with smallmouth bass and bream the main catches. Hunting, bird watching and wildlife viewing are other popular pastimes.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park There's no mistaking the haze-shrouded blue mountains called the Smokies, the backdrop to life in parts of east Tennessee. Great Smoky Mountains National Park runs along the southeastern edge of Tennessee where it spills over into North Carolina. Around 10 million visitors enter the gates of the Smokies each year admission-free, making it the most visited National Park in the U.S.

Land Between the Lakes There's a special place for outdoor recreation and experiencing nature in southwestern Kentucky. Virtually every water sport is available here plus over 200 miles of trails and abandoned roads for biking, horseback riding, off highway vehicles, hiking and wildlife watching.
