Tennessee State Parks offering new discount for state residents

Tennessee State Parks are providing a 10% discount for Tennessee residents for overnight accommodations through a new program applying to most campsites, cabins and lodge rooms across the state.
“Our parks belong to Tennesseans, so it is only fitting that state residents pay less than out-of-state visitors for overnight stays,” Jim Bryson, deputy commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, said. “We believe Tennessee taxpayers deserve this break in the parks.”
Tennessee State Parks encourage Tennesseans to visit a park that is close to home when selecting a vacation destination and practice social distancing. The state parks offer a variety of options for overnight stays, including lodge rooms, cabins, and sites for RVs, tents and hammock camping. Overnight accommodations are open, but availability may be limited as parks officials work to maintain social distancing and enhanced cleaning protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The discount is for all Tennessee residents 18-and-older with a valid state-issued photo ID. A Tennessee resident must occupy the campsite, cabin or lodge room to qualify. Guests must provide a current valid state-issued photo ID that includes a valid Tennessee residence at time of check in. The discount will not apply to premium campsites, and some camp exclusions may apply.
Tennessee State Parks officials advise everyone to bring and wear a mask when entering public facilities or in areas where six feet of separation is not possible.
