Ijams Nature Center, Knoxville Reviews - Write a Review

  • Amazing place hiding in the middle of the city. Trails are great, many choices from beginner to more experienced. The swimming hole is amazing. Has multiple docks to jump off. Never too crowed. Has bathrooms, water rentals and even a snack hut that sells beer. All ages come bring your float because its DEEP.

  • Only complaint is I wish they would leave the door unlocked for the restrooms at the main entrance. It's a little inconvenient to walk/drive all the way to the quarry to use the restroom. Other than that, it's one of my absolute favorite places. It's great whether I'm there for a walk/run or just to set up the hammock and read/relax. Also, if you're into Pokemon go, they're are stops and gyms all around and tons of mon's!

  • Ijams is a wonderful place for the whole family. Love the fact that its out doors and they have many trails you can choose from

  • Loved it! We will be returning with our kids who are 4, 8,9, and 16 all did great and we did the tower trail as well. Very family friendly here

  • Very clean facility and staff was very freindly. Was on site for about three hours and explored the boardwalk trail and several of the smaller areas. Was never bored the entire time. We encountered lots of wildlife, even saw a turkey with about five juveniles on parade. The boardwalk trail ran right along and even overhanging the river at points and passed a small cave entrance. Trail was well shaded for a very hot day.
