Tennessee State Parks Offer Special Winter Rates Through March 15

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - by Shannon Ashford

Tennessee State Parks is offering special winter rates for 360 villas and cabins, along with six state park inns until March 15, 2013.  With a state park within an hour’s drive of just about anywhere in Tennessee, families and groups seeking unique recreation opportunities and high-quality accommodations can find the perfect getaway – all at an exceptional value and a bit closer to home.  

With a Tennessee State Parks special winter discount, park visitors can stay at one of Tennessee’s six state park inns for $54.95 a night (excluding tax).  The inn discount may be used seven days a week and applies to both individuals and groups.  A 50 percent discount also is being offered for villas and cabins with a two-night minimum stay.  The cabin discount is valid Sunday through Thursday only and some holiday weeks are not included.  Discounts are based on availability and certain other restrictions may apply. 

There is no coupon necessary for this special rate and patrons simply need to ask for the “Special Winter Promotion” when making a reservation. When making online reservations please ensure the available code for the special winter rate or cabin discount is applied.  While reservations are not required, they are highly recommended to ensure availability. 

Special winter rates are not valid with other discounts.  For more information about the special promotion, please call the Tennessee State Parks information line at 615 532-0001 or toll free at 888 867-2757.  For additional information or to make online reservations, please visit the Tennessee State Parks website at www.tnstateparks.com.
