Description

Seven Islands State Park sits on 416 acres about 19 miles east of Knoxville running along the French Broad River. The land was acquired in 2002 as a wildlife refuge through the Seven Islands Foundation and the Knox County Parks and Recreation Department. It became a state park in 2013. Along with having a diverse landscape, the park also features more than eight miles of trails and views of the Smoky Mountains. The park is popular for wildlife observation and for research and education. Hikers can expect to see songbirds, hawks, and waterfowl. There is also an ADA trail, pedestrian bridge, and island loop. Bikes can be used on paved surfaces and bridges only. Swimming and diving are prohibited. Dogs must be on leash at all times.
