The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation on Friday announced it will close all 56 Tennessee state parks and state-owned state natural areas to the public effective Saturday through April 14.
This is a complete closure of facilities and access to all Tennessee State Parks and Designated State Natural Areas, including Pickwick Landing State Park in Hardin County.
“We decided to close the parks in support of Gov. Lee’s Executive Order 23,” TDEC Commissioner David Salyers said. “The health and safety of Tennessee citizens is all of our top priority right now.”
