BSFA is in the Middle of it All!

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

Big South Fork Airpark is located 50 miles north of Knoxville, Tennessee, and is centrally located to many local attractions and activities. We chose this location due to the proximity to the 125,000-acre Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area and all the exciting adventures nearby.

Our residents can tour the local historic attractions or drive into one of our region’s small towns for a quick lunch, and even grab a room at a local bed and breakfast and make a multi-day trip out of it. But if you are wanting to stay close to home there is everything you ever need in the local town of Oneida, TN, making everyday life at the airpark a breeze!
