In support of Governor Lee’s Executive Order 23, we have made the difficult decision to close Tennessee State Parks. This closure is effective April 4, 2020 and will be in place through April 14, 2020. This is a complete closure of facilities and access to all Tennessee State Parks and Designated State Natural Areas.
Overnight Accommodations Temporarily Closed
All park cabins, lodges, group overnight facilities, and campgrounds are closed through April 14. At this time, upcoming reservations between April 15 and April 30 will be honored. Online reservations will remain available for trips with check-in dates after April 30th.
Public Facilities Temporarily Closed
All public spaces (such as visitor centers, shelters, playgrounds, restrooms, etc.) are closed. Rentable facilities (like shelters and pavilions) with reservations between now and April 14 will be fully refunded. At this time, rentable facilities with prior reservations between April 15 and April 30 will be honored.
If you are a group planner, we encourage you to communicate directly with the park at which you have planned your event. This will allow park staff to work directly with you and answer logistical questions pertaining to your particular event. Parks can assist groups with rebooking to a date later in the year.
Park-hosted Event Cancellations
Tennessee State Parks are canceling all park-hosted events through April 15. We do apologize for any inconvenience this poses to you. If you purchased a ticket to a paid event, we are working diligently to cancel and process refunds in our reservation system. As always, thank you for choosing to support Tennessee State Parks.
