Celebrating your dad or favorite father figure is as easy as walking in the park. On Sunday, June 18th, why not do both? Three of our park restaurants will be hosting specials for Father's Day. After your meal - treat your dad to a day on the lake or on the trails at one of our amazing state parks!

Fall Creek Falls State Park • Spencer, TN • Prime Rib Dinner Special

Why enjoy time with Dad on just one day? The Restaurant at Fall Creek Falls will be hosting a special Prime Rib Dinner during dinner meal times throughout Father's Day Weekend (or while supplies last). With three cuts to choose from, au jus, and scrumptious sides like loaded baked potatoes, your dad will be sure to love this special treat! But the fun doesn't have to stop at dinner; make it a full family trip to see one of the park's famous waterfalls!
