Spend less time in the kitchen and more time with friends and family, while surrounding yourself with Tennessee’s natural wonders during this season of thanksgiving.
Once again, Tennessee State Park officials are pleased to announce that all eight state park restaurants will be open Thursday, Nov. 22, serving their annual Thanksgiving Day feast.
Thanksgiving turkey and all the traditional trimmings, along with an assortment of desserts, will be available beginning at 11 a.m. until closing at state park restaurants across Tennessee. Selections and prices will vary depending on location, ranging from $12.95 to $15.95 (excluding drink and gratuity). Group reservations are recommended.
“Thanksgiving is a great day to reflect on all of the things we appreciate and a Tennessee State Park offers the perfect setting to give thanks to all that nature has to offer,” said Deputy Commissioner Brock Hill. “Let us do the cooking this year, allowing more time to relax and enjoy the day.”
