Frozen Head State Park and Natural Area is situated in the beautiful Cumberland Mountains of eastern Tennessee. The 24,000 acres of relatively undisturbed forest contain some of the richest wildflowers areas in Tennessee. The mountainous terrain varies from an elevation of 1,340 feet to over 3,000 feet on 16 different mountain peaks. Frozen Head, elevation of 3,324, is one of the highest peaks in Tennessee west of the Great Smoky Mountains. From its observation tower on a clear day, one can plainly see the Cumberland Plateau, Tennessee Ridge and Valley, and the Great Smoky Mountains. In winter, the mountain peaks are often capped with snow or ice while the lower valleys remain unadorned, thus giving the park's namesake, Frozen Head. The park's lush vegetation, small streams, waterfalls and beautiful mountains make Frozen Head one of Tennessee's most scenic parks.

  • Big Cove campground and Flat Fork campground were great. Great to camp in the winter too. Very crowded in the summer. We hiked to the Lookout Tower on the South Old Mac trail. Good trail but a bit rough going up. Would recommend bringing at least a liter of water when going up. Going down was easy.
  • This park is really nice and secluded. Several very nice campsites by the creek. It has a real nice play ground for kids and a place for them to get in the creek. Awesome hiking trails that lead through thick forest in the mountains.
