Rock Island State Park Is The Single Best State Park In Tennessee And It’s Just Waiting To Be Explored

Tennessee has 56 state parks in total, each of them operated and protected by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. With another 12 parks considered national parks, it’s almost surprising that any chunk of the state is private! With such a large number of options, it can be hard to narrow down your day trip to just one, but we have quite the recommendation: Rock Island State Park. It may not be the “go-to” park (we see you, Fall Creek Falls!) but it’s one of the best-kept secrets in the state. Don’t believe us? Find out for yourself!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
