Travel the road in Mousetail Landing State ParkMousetail Landing State Park is a 1,247-acre (5.05 km2) state park located on the eastern bank of the Tennessee River in Perry County, Tennessee near Linden. The park was established in 1986, making it one of the more recent additions to the Tennessee State Parks system. 

The name is thought to have been derived from an event during the American Civil War in which a tannery located at a river landing on the site of the present day state park caught fire. The tannery was infested with an unusually large number of mice which fled the burning tannery in the direction of the landing, giving the landing its present name.

The park has 11 miles (18 km) of trails, 24 prepared campsites, a swimming beach, a boat landing, sports fields and courts, an archery range and an enclosed event pavilion.[2] Also located within the park are several archeological ruins, including the original landing pier, a blacksmith shop, and Parrish Cemetery.
