Rocky Fork to Become State's Newest Park
The 75th anniversary of Tennessee State Parks, is ending on a high note. Governor Bill Haslam and Senator Lamar Alexander joined elected officials from Unicoi County to celebrate more than 2,000 acres in the Rocky Fork tract to become Tennessee's 55th state park. Located in Northeast Tennessee, approximately 25 miles from Johnson City, the 10,000-acre Rocky Fork tract has been at the top of the U.S. Forest Service's priorities for land acquisition. Thanks to a campaign led by The Conservation Fund, the U.S. Forest Service recently was able to purchase 8,000 acres of Rocky Fork to be managed as national forest, leaving 2,000 acres to eventually become Tennessee's newest state park.
