Rock Island, TN


Rock Island State Park offers menagerie of activities for all ages.  There is picnicking, hiking, swimming, photography, boating, and fishing just to mention a few.  There is also a view of a highly unusual waterfall, Great Falls.  Great Falls runs out of a crevasse in side of a limestone gorge.  Above the crevasse is a stand of hardwood trees which makes this an unusual picture that isn't seen very often.  Also, found at Rock Island State Park is a 19th century textile mill.
