Rocky Fork State Park have canceled Synchronous Firefly & Blue Ghost Firefly Viewing Event Nights this year. This is to support the Tennessee State Government's efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and to adhere to the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding social distance constraints.
The safety of our public event participants, park staff, and park volunteers is our #1 Priority.
June 1, 2020 Update: The park is open for day-use visitors from 7AM to sunset. Please follow the guidelines on our Keeping Visitors Healthy page to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
If Rocky Fork State Park is full, consider coming back at a different time. Consider coming earlier in the day to allow for plenty of time if an area is full and you need to adjust your plans. Tennessee State Parks may limit access to certain parks or areas if capacity is reached.
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.
