The Indian Boundary Recreation area is the crown jewel of the South Zone of the Cherokee National Forest on the Tellico Ranger District. This family oriented campground offers a beach, picnic area (with grills), a picnic pavilion at the beach and a 3.2 mile trail around the lake that is fantastic for hiking or bicycling. The 96-acre Indian Boundary Lake is a popular destination for lake anglers casting their lines for bass, sunfish and catfish. The 85-site campground has electric hook ups, water faucets throughout the campground, grills, picnic tables, and lantern posts. Modern restrooms add to the comfort of visitors in this natural setting. A new dump station will also be a plus to visitors. There is a campground store that provides visitors with bread, ice, milk, ice cream, and other camping supplies. Spectacular mountain views, glimpses of wildlife, and a peaceful setting await visitors who come to Indian Boundary.
