Tennessee State Parks



Birding is one of the most popular and rewarding outdoor recreational activities in the United States. From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Mississippi River, Tennessee is home to a great diversity of birdlife. Tennessee State Parks offer excellent, year-round opportunities to explore this diversity from common species like Tennessee’s state bird, the Northern Mockingbird, to rare species like the Cerulean Warbler. Whether you’re looking for a Barred Owl, Wood Thrush or a White Ibis, you can find many of Tennessee’s birds in a state park. Tennessee State Parks offer a variety of lodging options including camping, cabins and inns, and for those traveling with groups, many parks offer group accommodations.
