Located 50 miles north of Knoxville, Tennessee, the luxurious Big South Fork Airpark boasts an asphalt runway 5,500 feet in length, with 3 instrument approaches. The Airpark grounds, totaling 400 acres, offer 1-3+ acre homesites and start in the low $100,000's. Personal hangars are also available, and start at $95,000. Each taxiway home has convenient runway access and is in the immediate vicinity of the 125,000 acre Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area with its forests, gorges and sandstone bluffs. Located in a truly spectacular wooded setting, the Airpark offers spacious homesites to ensure a quiet lifestyle while being close to the beautiful Big South Fork and all its amenities. There are endless horseback riding opportunities in the area, as well as camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and river rafting. Taxiway homesites are designed for easy runway access and for optimum equestrian privileges; however, non-aviator residents can be assured of a tranquil environment with all the amenities the area has to offer.
Big South Fork is served by the Scott Municipal Airport which is located adjacent to the airpark. This residential airpark is a unique neighborhood with access to a 5,500 ft. runway with 3 instrument approaches and an on-site maintenance facility.
