South Pittsburg, Tennessee: Stand On Three States At Once

The Camak Stone -- named after the mathematician who set the marker's location -- is unimpressive, but fans recently augmented the marker with a photo-worthy "Tri-State Corner" arch to flag this three-state spot.

Stand On Three States At Once

There are a couple of trails leading away from the cemetery. One leads to the river and the other to the marker, with purple arrows showing the way. The adjacent cemetery is completely enclosed by a fence, so it's convenient for the dogs to play.

When the path splits, take the left and it is just ahead.

Tri-State Corner.

TN-GA-AL Marker (Camak Stone)

How do you move from Alabama to Tennessee to Georgia without driving an inch? Just look for the tiny monument marking the spot where those state borders meet! It's named after mathematician James Camak, who set this marker's location.
