View from Tharp Knob Picnic Area

A large picnic area with multiple pavilions and an open field are available at the Tharp Knob Picnic Area, a great location for a packed lunch or barbecue. There is a play area for children, a softball field, and a large mowed field for activities like flying a kite. You'll occasionally encounter wildlife early in the morning of deer or turkeys browsing through an adjacent meadow. The atmosphere on Tharp Knob is that of being on a hilltop open field surrounded by hardwoods interspersed with open meadows.
