Rec Area Info & Images


The Laurels Picnic Area Pavilions will close for the season on Monday, October 14, 2019. The Laurels has been a popular area since the early days in East Tennessee. It was a common evening stopover for farmers from North Carolina taking produce to markets in Johnson City. The site is named for the native Rhododendron that thrives in the area, locally called “laurel.” The Civilian Conservation Corps helped construct the current facilities in the early 1930’s. Today, it is a popular day-use area, providing a nice shady place for family picnics and group gatherings.  


The Laurels has two pavilions, each with picnic tables and grills. An old foot path meanders through the nearby woods.


The Laurels includes two picnic pavilions, numerous tables connected by paths and trash cans. There are vault toilets on site. There is no potable water.

Natural Features

Honeycomb Creek flows through the picnic area and is enjoyed by kids of all ages on warm summer days.
