Tennessee State Parks Mission:
The mission of the Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation’s Bureau of Parks is to provide safe and enjoyable recreational and interpretive opportunities for all Tennessee State residents and visitors while serving as responsible stewards of the state’s valuable natural and cultural resources. Tennessee State Parks (TSP) operates 56 state parks and 85 natural areas encompassing over 200,000 acres of land with numerous park facilities, swimming pools, golf courses, cabins, campsites, trails, and nature centers. TSP is committed to making all reasonable efforts to ensure that these facilities and their programs are accessible to and usable by visitors of all abilities, including those with limitations.
TSP is continually working to increase accessibility and further its compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. TSP promotes accessibility with the expansion of physical access and the use of specialized adaptive recreation equipment, interpretive resources, and reasonable accommodations. In addition, all newly-built or renovated facilities and trails, as well as newly developed programs and services, will adhere to the most current standards for accessible design.
