This park offers great walking trails, soccer fields, a swimming pool, a campground, etc. There is plenty to do here. I would consider Panther Creek Park one of Morristown's most beautiful parks.

Plenty of great things to do. Playground, volleyball, tennis, pool, and a variety of trails. I've never camped because I live to close to need to camp. Lots of great views. I recommend the overlook at sunset. A lot of deer at dusk.

The view of the lake is just beautiful. Great roads and shelters. On the lake with a creek running through it.

Took the 1.2 mile easy overlook loop with our 15 member family with 2 to 70yr olds and followed trail and ended up lost with over 3 miles in steep terrain.

Since no one had a concrete answer, I just called. Lo and behold... they do have Wi-fi in the campground! But, the ranger I spoke with said it's not the greatest, and that if you're streaming something, it's going to take... More
