Marble Springs State Historic Site is located on approximately 35 scenic acres less than 10 miles south of Knoxville.  We offer 3 camp ground areas, a pavilion with electricity, restrooms, and hiking trails.  Marble Springs encourages  all scout groups to visit the site and attend workshops that help them earn badges, loops, and insignia!  Please let us know in advance how we can help your group achieve its goals.


We are also happy to work with Eagle Scout projects and can provide a list of our needs upon request. Previous projects include building a bridge, trail maintenance, a green initiative through recycling and compost bins, building bluebird houses, and constructing fire pits.


For more information, please contact John Gammon.
