Fodor's Review

On the northeast edge of the park, this picnic area has 35 tables in well-tended grassy areas under large poplar trees. Cosby Creek runs through the grounds. A wheelchair-accessible pavilion seats 55 and can be reserved for $20. There's a ranger station, restrooms, trailheads, and horse trails. Cosby has easy access from I–40 via the Foothills Parkway and TN Hwy. 32.
