Did you know most mammals are secretive or are active only at night?  This rarely allows us to catch a glimpse of them.  They often leave evidence of their presence--such as their tracks.  Come enjoy a 45-minute ranger-interpretive program to learn more about the park's wildlife and ecology.  This hands-on activity will provide kids an opportunity to have fun making souvenir tracks that they can take home with them.

Please come and enjoy this kid-friendly interpretive program with Park Ranger Miriam Matthias at the Bandy Creek Campground campfire circle.  If it rains, the evening program will be held at the covered pavilion located next to the swimming pool.  This ranger-led program is free of charge.  Everyone is welcome.

For directions or additional information, please call the Bandy Creek Visitor Center at (423) 286-7275.

Did You Know?

Devils Jump Rapid is just below the site of the proposed dam.

In the 1960's Congress requested the Army Corps of Engineers to study the feasibility of damming the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River just above the Devils Jump Rapid to create another reservoir. Had that happened Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area would never have existed.
