Knox County Parks

Gateway to Knox County Parks


Knox County Park system is home to wonderful wildlife and plant life preserves, campgrounds, fishing, and the perfect setting for naturalist activities to keep your family entertained. We maintain six properties, five of which are presently open to the public and one, the old Enoco Coal Mine, for the future.

We encourage everyone to visit one of our properties and enjoy the unique natural characteristics each has to offer. Make a day of hiking, a family picnic, camping, fishing, or any number of activities at our parks.

Knox County Parks are yours, naturally.
