Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Landmark
View the world's largest set of the Ten Commandments at Fields of the Wood, a Bible-based park in the Smoky Mountains. Step into the stories of the Bible and hike through this natural setting while viewing the All Nations cross, prayer mountain chapel, and a recreated tomb of Joseph of Arimathea, where Jesus was laid after his death. A long staircase ascends the hillside where the famous commandments are etched, so you can see the record-breaker up close. Driving to the top is also an option. Put Fields of the Wood and other Murphy attractions into our Murphy travel website, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The beauty of nature is seen in its simplicity. When you smell the fresh pines, hear the wind rustling through the trees and meditate on Psalms 34:8 "O taste and see that the Lord is good! Happy is the man who takes refuge in him!" You can appreciate this wonderful place. A must see.
  • Peaceful, quiet place to contemplate God's glory. These folks have put a lot of work into this location. The last visit a year ago reflects a decline in the overall appearance of the place. It is a project of the church of God religion so be aware of the influence.
