Hatfield Knob Elk Viewing Tower is located at the Sundquist Unit of the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area in Campbell County in East Tennessee.  

Between 2000 and 2008, 201 elk were released by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) on the Royal Blue and Sundquist Wildlife Management Areas. The most TWRA surveys now place the number of elk at around 600.

I didn’t see any elk while I was at the viewing tower. However on the walk back to the jeep I saw two in the woods.  The only reason I noticed them was the amount of noise they made. They were not being stealthy at all.  I could not get good pictures because of the trees and undergrowth blocking the shots.
