The NE Cherokee County Parks Plans include a conceptual design of three parcels of land in northeast Cherokee County that are all located within a 5-mile radius of the HWY 369 and HWY 372 intersection. Cochran Park, located on HWY 372, possesses 102 acres and has much potential for both active and passive recreational opportunities. Long Swamp Creek Recreation Area, located on HWY 369, possesses 23 acres at the confluence of the Etowah River and Long Swamp Creek. This area is rich in Native American history and has much potential for outdoor recreation opportunities. Yellow Creek Road Conservation Area, located on Yellow Creek Road, possesses 538 acres of conservation land and will be primarily dedicated to hiking, biking, horseback riding, canoe/ kayaking, and camping opportunities.
