State Park
Mousetail Landing State Park

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.
