Affordable Travel in the State of the Volunteers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – As inflation continues to soar, families may tighten budgets and cancel trips. But there are affordable options.

With 56 state parks in Tennessee, chances are you live within an hour’s drive of one.

“We are one of the only state parks that does not charge an entry fee to enter our parks,” said Shannon Bowles, Tennessee State Parks Hospitality Manager. “If you’re looking for something affordable to do, our state parks are a great option.”

Bowles said there are a number of campgrounds, cabins and lodges at several of the parks with “all kinds of price points and all kinds of locations.”

When most people think of a state park, camping comes to mind, which is one of the more affordable options. But if you’re looking for something more luxurious, you might be surprised what else the parks have to offer.

“We have six fabulous lodges in our resort parks across the state of Tennessee. Two of them are brand new. Bowles continued, “Paris Landing just opened yesterday. Fall Creek Falls opened earlier this year in January. And these are brand new facilities from top to bottom. And they are truly stunning.

There are also newly renovated complexes at Montgomery Bell and Pickwick Landing. Henry Horton and Natchez Trace also have lodges.

But there is an even more affordable option. “At each of these locations, we have cabins in addition to lodges. So if you’re looking for something a little quieter and secluded, our cabins are great options in addition to our lodges in these parks.

Bowles added that there were 20 parks with cabins. To view all available options and make a reservation, click on this link.
