Tennessee State Parks Temporarily Ban Backcountry Campfires

 

Tennessee State Parks 75th AnniversaryNashville, TN – The Tennessee State Parks system is issuing a temporary ban on backcountry campfires in all state parks due to dry weather conditions that could increase the potential for wildfire hazards.

In coordination with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture’s Division of Forestry efforts, this burn ban serves as an additional measure to ensure the safety of campers and to protect the parks’ forested areas.
