Red Clay State Park

Updated: Aug 11, 2022

Red Clay State Park is AMAZING, let me get that out of the way. The park itself is about 250 acres. The museum alone is such a fitting tribute to the history of the land and the Cherokee who consider this land sacred. Outside of Chattanooga, this land was the permanent government seat of the Cherokee nation until they found out about the Indian Removal Act and were forcibly removed from the Southeast. This is considered the start of the Trail of Tears. When we went, it was raining, hard. So, we didn't see the Blue Hole Spring, or many of the replicas of buildings on the site. But, we did spend more time at the museum than we've spent in other parks. It's well curated, gorgeous, and moving. It tells the story of the Cherokee in a way that I feel is accessible to anyone. I can not recommend enough.
