Fields of the Wood, Murphy

4.5
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Murphy
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 great sight to see. Biblical tableau set in a pastoral setting. God’s people will feel refreshed and renewed by visiting here. This is a place to enjoy biblical sights and sounds. It is the home of ...  more »
  • Not really much here to talk about. Ample parking, because no one was there. Nice gift shop. Impressive 10 Commandments, but the other sites were just a little sad, and the place could have been clean...  more »

  • Peaceful place. Gift shop was nice and inexpensive on most things. Just needs to be more handicap accessible. Not handicap friendly getting to and from monuments. Climbing all those stairs is a real workout but we'll worth it. Need to fix railings though. But nice place to visit. Gorgeous views.
  • There's lots to see here if you have the time and stamina. Your legs can get a real workout, if you're inclined to step climbing. There are also hiking trails up top, near the Flags of Nations. Plus a nice gift shop and small restaurant. Even if you're not a Christian, the effort and dedication that went in to putting this park together is something to see.
  • We Heard about this place from Scott Mason Tar Heel traveler. We visited on April 12, 2017 and overall the place was nice some parts needs a little TLC but as we proceeded to the gift shop the atmosphere was not so nice. The lady behind the counter was very friendly to the couple who was ahead of us but when they left the clerk went and sat down to eat her lunch without saying anything to us. Finally she got up and came and checked us out still without saying a word ,hello ,how are you anything. I said, she should be more friendly in this type of environment, she stared at me without saying a word. I am a black male with a white wife and mixed children but that should not matter in a biblical environment.
  • This place is so unique and awesome. I would recommend to anyone. Very spiritual. I would say they could use some donations as well. They need to paint some of the stuff.
  • Such a beautiful, peaceful place. Always very clean and the staff at the cafe is great.
