Indian Mountain State Park RV & Campground Guide

Tennessee

Near the northern border of Tennessee, you'll find Indian Mountain State Park, which is situated in Campbell County.

There's also a wide variety of wildlife in and around the park, including several species of waterfowl, salamanders, bears, wildcats, and larger herbivores like elk. While the name of the park might convince you that it's located on Indian Mountain, in truth, it's actually located at the base. Throughout the park, you'll also find several lakes and streams, so if you've packed fishing equipment into your RV, this place provides some angling opportunities.
