Policies & Disclaimers

Wi-Fi Policy

Panther Creek State Park offers Wi-Fi in the campground for your enjoyment. The signal strength may vary depending on the demand, your location and your computer. Our Wi-Fi is not intended for heavy use such as downloading movies, streaming videos, or inappropriate content. Should you abuse the system, your access will be blocked. Wi-Fi signal outages may occur from time to time due to weather or other technical difficulties. Park staff cannot guarantee the continuity of free Wi-Fi service, nor can they troubleshoot issues with individual computers and devices connecting to the service.

Firewood Policy

In order to protect our forests and trees from invasive insects and diseases, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Please refrain from bringing untreated wood into the park.

Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase from concessioners in many of the campgrounds as well as from vendors in the communities around the park. Certified heat-treated firewood is clearly marked with a state or federal seal.

The Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive pests are a growing threat to the forests of Tennessee and the surrounding region. To learn more about the pests that threaten Tennessee and what you can do to help prevent the introduction and spread of invasive pests, visit
