Buck's Pocket State Park

Buck's Pocket State Park
393 Co. Road 174

Located in three counties (DeKalb, Jackson and Marshall), the Cherokee Indians once lived on what now is park land before the Trail of Tears. The area was also used for growing coffee and olives by the French during the 1700s and later for logging in the 1940s.  As local legend goes, Buck's Pocket also served as a retreat for defeated public officials after unsuccessful elections.
