is a 1,247-acre park located on the east banks of the Tennessee
River. This park offers for the public 11 miles of beautiful hiking/backpacking trails, 8 miles of adventurous mountain biking trails, a swim beach, picnic tables, playgrounds, meeting pavilions,
and picturesque views from campsites in the enchanting forests by the Tennessee River.
The park has an abundance of wildlife, such
as deer, turkey, raccoon, fox, beaver, coyote, as well as
many species of birds for the amateur photographer.
The park received its name from one of the tanneries in the
area. The first tannery was started in the 1800’s. When one
of its storage buildings caught fire the exodus of rats was
so great it got the name Rattail Landing. Shortly after this
a second tannery was established in the area with a general
store, post office, and shipping point on the main Tennessee
River. Being smaller than Rattail Landing they
called it Mousetail Landing.
