Booker T. Washington State Park


Governor Haslam has issued a burn ban that prohibits campfires and burning of brush, vegetation, trash and building materials. In addition to the Governor’s ban on campfires, Tennessee State Parks are prohibiting the use of outdoor charcoal grills at the affected parks. Some parks have issued additional burn bans or trail closures above and beyond what Governor Haslam or Tennessee State Parks have implemented.
