Standing Stone State Park

Standing Stone Go Green

The mission of the Tennessee State Parks Go Green With Us program is to preserve and protect our state parks through sustainable park operations, resource conservation, and recycling. Program components cover a diverse array of initiatives, including energy and water conservation through equipment and operations upgrades, recycling programs, projects to enhance ecosystem health, and erosion control, among many others.

  • Standing Stone State Park enhances ecosystem health by conducting controlled burns and planting butterfly-attracting plants.
  • Regularly scheduledvolunteer litter pickup events help keep the forest and the lake clean. There are also high-efficiency wood stoves for heating at both of the ranger residences.
  • The park is part of the TVA’s Green Power Switch program.
