Roan Mountain State Park

Roan mountain fall

Public Announcement as of Monday, August 29:  The Road to the Miller Farmstead is closed due to a preservation project underway at the Miller Farmstead. We expect this project to be completed in October. This beautiful farmstead was listed on the National Historic Register just over a year ago. Because of its age, the home needs a significant amount of repair work completed to preserve and protect this site. This project will consist of building a new foundation and repairing structural support to the home. Currently, the house foundation is crumbling, resulting in the home sinking to the ground. Completion of this project will ensure that the Miller Farmstead Home is preserved and maintained for future generations to enjoy, and learn about early Appalachian life and culture. We apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate your understanding as we work to preserve this great piece of history.

New Firewood Policy – Effective June 1, 2016 - DON’T MOVE FIREWOOD

In order to protect our forests and trees from invasive insects and diseases, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Please refrain from bringing untreated wood into the park.

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 firewood is clearly marked with a state or 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.
