Fields of the Wood, Murphy

(4.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This is an interesting and one-of-a-kind type of place. That being said, I am not sure it is super enjoyable. It's just interesting. There is a lot of dedication to the 10 Commandments and other Scrip...  more »
  • Simply a Beautiful park, very peaceful. Can not wait to go back in the Spring time for a hike! It was a little to dreary to do it today. But definitely gonna return. 
  • This is a great place to visit if you have the chance. Admission is free although it operates on donations. It is a great family trip. 
  • As beautiful as this theme park is they have consistently and constantly turned our general area into an extreme noise pollution zone as they spend hours every day using s huge leaf blowing machine that causes a high pitch noise that cannot be tolerated by man or beast!! We can't enjoy the fall weather here even 1/4 mile away for the constant noise!!
  • 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.
  • So peaceful and relaxing. Went with my youth church group and everyone had a great time!
  • 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.
  • A place full of serenity, peace, and history. A lot of faith and work is in tangible form here. A great stop.
