My TN State Park Fundraiser

Show love for your favorite Tennessee State Park throughout April.

For the third year in a row, Tennessee State Parks in partnership with Tennessee State Parks Conservancy is hosting the “My TN State Park” fundraiser–allowing you to vote for your favorite state park. Each $1 Donation = One Vote.

For as little as a dollar, you can vote for your favorite park and contribute back to a thriving system of state parks. Let's work together to make our parks the best they can be!

Every donation supports Tennessee State Park's mission to protect and preserve the unique natural, cultural, and historic resources of Tennessee for today and for future generations to enjoy. Explore individual park fundraising pages to see how we plan to put donations to work.
