Whether sleeping under the stars in a pup tent or setting up camp in an RV, Tennessee State Parks are ideal for camping.
2016 Firewood Policy - DON’T MOVE FIREWOOD
To help protect our forests and trees, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite.
Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase from concessioners in many of the campgrounds as well as from vendors in the communities around the park. Certified heat-treated wood is clearly marked with a state/federal seal.
The Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive pests are a growing threat to the forests of Tennessee and the surrounding region. To learn more about the pests that threaten Tennessee and what you can do to help prevent the introduction and spread of invasive pests, visit www.protecttnforests.org.
