COVID-19 UPDATES: Keeping Visitors Healthy


Give Online

Looking for ways to support Tennessee State Parks? Our parks are free for everyone to visit and enjoy. If you love a particular park, you can donate today to help us continue investing in quality programs and services. Your donations will help make your favorite park even better! We'll use the donations for things like

  • Building and maintaining new trails
  • Feeding and care for our birds of prey (eagles, hawks, owls, etc.)
  • Providing children's programs to connect youth to the outdoors
  • Upgrading our playground equipment
  • Projects that improve visitor experience, but are not funded by the state's General Fund

Please note: Donations to state governments may qualify for itemized tax deductions. Please consult a qualified tax representative to learn more.  

Scroll to the bottom of this page to find your favorite park and donate today. You can also give through the online form

They raise funds for educational programs, health initiatives and special park projects that preserve, protect and enhance the 56 state parks across Tennessee.
