View the world's largest set of the Ten Commandments at Fields of the Wood, a Bible-based park in the Smoky Mountains. Step into the stories of the Bible and hike through this natural setting while viewing the All Nations cross, prayer mountain chapel, and a recreated tomb of Joseph of Arimathea, where Jesus was laid after his death. A long staircase ascends the hillside where the famous commandments are etched, so you can see the record-breaker up close. Driving to the top is also an option.

  • A must see. the most unique places for reflection. Able to see long distances. An enjoyable venture for history and locale. thanks 
  • Went there as a kid and we took our son there. Its a fun place to sit on the steps and have a picnic! 
  • It was an interesting places and some of the displayed exhibit were interesting. Others were starting to show their age, and some were needing repairs. The place opened in the late 30s, to early 40s. Some displays, like the 10 Commandments were built to stand up to the weather, others like Christ's tomb were starting to crumble. Railings and stairs were in poor condition, and needed some work. None of the ameties were open (grill/gift shop) there were no staff to be seen, so any questions or getting a drink was out of the question. Nice trails, good walk, needs some work.
  • Great place to just walk and relax. Nice cafe and clean bathrooms. Only this is I was super dizzy just looking up the mountain but that's just me. Kids enjoyed it.
  • This is worth driving too no matter how far you live most amazing thing I have ever seen out of any where I have been and when you get to the top of prayer mountain you can feel the spirit of God I sat down and prayed to be healed and I am healed in the name of Jesus
  • Awesome place to visit! So exciting to finally get to see it! So worth the drive!
  • It was beautiful and peaceful. An awesome place. It's better to experience it for yourself than to try and find words to describe it
