Recommendations

Perfect wedding venue! - An Eventective User from Murfreesboro,Tn

The coordinator is wonderful! Our day was perfect. The tiniest of decor was needed since the nature was decoration enough!

Great Place - An Eventective User from Knoxville, TN

IJAMS Nature Center is a great place to see. They have great hiking trails, and a nice nature center. I've been multiple times, and every time I go, I see something new! They've done a great job preserving the area as much as possible! LOVE IT!
