Tennessee State Parks is allowing park-hosted events for groups of 50 people or less. Large community events held within Tennessee State Parks will be assessed based on the ability of each event to meet social distancing guidelines. Special Use Permits will continue to be required with additional plans made in regard to how specific events can accomplish social distancing, hygiene, and cleaning requirements as outlined by the CDC.
Most state park boat rental operations will open this summer. Hours and operating procedures will vary by park. Each park will implement additional safety and sanitation protocols to protect park staff and visitors and encourage social distancing.
Boaters are encouraged to bring their own life jacket or approved personal floatation device (PFD).
