Cherokee National Forest is located in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of east Tennessee. The 600-acre forest is the largest tract of public land in Tennessee and is divided into northern and southern sections by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  The southern portion of the Cherokee National Forest forms the heart of the Tennessee Overhill.  This vast playground is known for its rugged mountain beauty and swift rivers.  It is becoming famous for other things, too.  The Ocoee Whitewater Center, Tanasi Mountain Biking Trail System, Cherohala Skyway, Consauaga Snorkeling Hole, Unicoi Turnpike Trail System, and Benton-MacKaye Trail  are just a few of the exciting experiences to be found in the forest.  Key features include:

Most  campsites are first-come, first-server, but Indian Boundary Campground and the Historic Donely Cabin require reservations at www.reserve.usa or 877-444-6777.
