This Island In Tennessee Is An Absolute Must Visit

Oh man. We got you with that title, didn’t we? You probably thought we had some here islands in our landlocked state of Tennessee…which, to be completely honest, we probably do. Tiny little land masses with names so easy to forget. The places kids tramp or that kind of well known spot near your home town. But here, we’re going for the big dogs. Rock Island State Park actually gets its name from nearby Rock Island, named for a little spot of land in the middle of Caney Fork River. Here’s the thing – these pictures are comin’ at ya. Right now.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

We may be landlocked, but even our island fake-outs are solid. Leave your favorite memory from Rock Island in the comments!
