Default Turkey Creek

I've heard much about Turkey Creek. I want to go there and check it out. Where is it located? What exit do we take off the interstate?
Thanks in advance,
Pam

It's located between Lovell Road and Campbell Station Road. If you're coming from the east, take the Lovell Road exit. If you're coming from the west, take the Campbell Station Road exit.

Turkey Creek is on the south side of I-40 between the two exits.

If you are coming from Blount County on Pellissippi you can take the Kingston Pike exit. Proceed straight through the red light across Kingston Pike. Pass Chili's restaurant on your right. At the "T", Parkside Drive, take a left and keep driving past the car dealers and Goody's corporate. Pass Lovell Road with Wasabi on your left and wallah, you will be in the shopping area. This avoids your having to get on I-40.

I think you can probably see the theater from space - it's quite a spectacle!

As an aside, Lovell always seems to be packed, so I usually opt for the Campbell Station exit. You're going to run into traffic wherever you go, but the cars at the Lovell exit almost always appear to be perilously close to backing up onto the interstate.

I do the same thing. The Lovell Road traffic can be maddening. And believe it or not, it hasn't been THAT long since the state widened Lovell Road.

At any rate, sometimes I do what SmokyMtnGal suggested. Coming from downtown Knoxville, I take Cedar Bluff and head south. Then I turn right onto Parkside Drive. Parkside goes parallel to I-40 and ends up at Turkey Creek. I don't know if it's any faster, but it's a much more pleasant drive.

I usually took Parkside as it passed Greenbank, and I always needed an ATM before going to Turkey Creek.

I also didn't like Lovell because I always got stuck at the red light right at some hitchhiker sitting on the guardrail who looked like he'd rather knock out my window and grab my wallet than look at me.

Oh gosh you're right, it seems there's always some shady hithhiker at the Lovell Road exit.

Traffic can really be a bear at peak times. Some good stores, but overall I don't get it. Just another oversized strip mall to me.
