Sullivan County Observation Knob Park is located in Sullivan County, Tennessee, close to the Tennessee/Virginia state line and right on beautiful South Holston Lake. Observation Knob Park is an excellent place for family and friends to spend a day at one of our shelters located inside the park. Or perhaps you are looking to get the family together for a little longer by reserving a lakefront site for up to 14 days at our campground. 14 days not enough? We offer seasonal sites too! Observation Knob Park is excellent for those who love fishing and water recreation as we have one of the best public boat ramps on South Holston Lake! Our park is proud to host many fishing tournaments of all sizes throughout the year. No boat? No problem! Fish off of our fishing pier or take a dip at our swimming point during those hot summer days.

Are you a musician? Rent our A-Shelter and Stage for the ultimate outdoor gig. Or maybe you are looking for an outdoor venue for your wedding. Make Observation Knob Park your wedding location and have the beautiful lake as the backdrop of your big day.
