A Day on the Water with Boat Rentals

Even without owning a boat, you can make dad's day out on the water. 26 of our parks across the state feature boating and most offer rentals from fishing and pontoon boats to kayaks and canoes.


Give a Year of Golf on the Tennessee Golf Trail

Annual-pass Pass holders enjoy unlimited golf at any of our six traditional courses or the three Jack Nicklaus- designed Bear Trace courses. Passes can be purchased at any Tennessee Golf Trail course and are good for 12 months from the date of issue.


Quality Time at a Cabin, Campsite, or Lodge

Surprise Dad with a family retreat to a cabin, campsite, or lodge stay and enjoy some quality time together away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Search our reservation map to find campsites, cabins, and lodges near you.


Gift Cards - Let Dad Choose an Adventure

If you're not ready to commit to booking an overnight trip for Dad but you still want to gift a stay at one of our parks, get a gift card! Gift cards can also be used for golfing; restaurants; marinas; gift shop items and vacation tours. Gift cards can be ordered on our website, Amazon, and various Kroger and Target locations throughout the state.


Subscription to Tennessee State Park's Magazine

For Dads on the go, a subscription to The Tennessee Conservationist magazine is the perfect gift. This award-winning magazine highlights the people and places of Tennessee while focusing on the natural, cultural, and historic treasures unique to the Volunteer State. Dad will enjoy exploring Tennessee’s back roads and State Parks from the comfort of home, six times a year with The Tennessee Conservationist.
