Frozen Head State Park Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Frozen Head is a little-known jewel of a state park tucked away in the Cumberland Mountains, a mountain range west of the Smokies. Steep, forested peaks and deep valleys pocked with rock formations characterize this area, settled in the early 1800s by farmers. But the land, so rich in coal and timber resources, was sold to the state for the establishment of the now infamous Brushy Mountain State Prison, and the resources were extracted using prison labor.
If you don’t feel like hiking or relaxing, there are many other activities. Play volleyball on one of the sand courts. Throw horseshoes in one of the three pits. Shoot some basketball at the outdoor court. Check out the free equipment you need at the park office. During the summer, the 240-seat amphitheater hosts many park activities, including interpretive talks, slide shows, movies, and music concerts."
