12th District State Senator
There is a state park within an hour’s drive of just about anywhere in Tennessee.
Several of these state parks are located in the 12th Senatorial District, including Indian Mountain in Jellico, Cove Lake in Caryville, Frozen Head in Wartburg, Norris Dam in Lake City, Cumberland Trail in Caryville and Pickett in Jamestown, as well as the Alvin C. York Historic Park in Pall Mall.
In fact, the 12th District may have more state parks located in it than any other.
