The county, which lies on the eastern edge of the Cumberland Plateau, is known for its rugged mountain terrain, and cold mountain streams and rivers. The Crab Orchard Mountains comprise a large area of the county, which includes several designated wilderness areas, Frozen Head State Park, and Lone Mountain State Forest.
The county seat is Wartburg, situated amidst the Crab Orchard Mountains, a sub-range of the Cumberland Mountains, near the eastern edge of the Cumberland Plateau. Bird Mountain dominates the area east of Wartburg, rising from its base at the edge of the city and stretching for some 10 miles to its 3,142-foot summit at Frozen Head State Park. The Emory River, its source near the summit of Bird, flows westwardly along the mountain's northern base, passing just north of Wartburg, and turning south before dropping off the plateau and emptying into the Watts Bar Lake impoundment of the Tennessee River. The Obed River flows eastwardly from Cumberland County through a scenic gorge before emptying into the Emory just west of Wartburg. Plenty of fishing, hiking and other outdoors recreational opportunities!
The county is home to the Cumberland Trail State Park, Catoosa Wildlife Management Area and is a neighbor to the Big South Fork National River and Recreational Area. Less than one hour away from Knoxville, Oak Ridge and Crossville it is located in close proximity to both Interstate 40 and Interstate 75. Morgan County is an easily accessible location for an adventure of a lifetime.
