Five Tennessee State Parks restaurants will serve delicious Easter meals Sunday, and visitors are invited to participate in various events over the Easter weekend at state parks across the state.
“We have excellent food for our visitors, and we hope everyone will enjoy holiday activities at the parks,” Jim Bryson, deputy commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, said. “From Easter egg hunts to rounds of golf, we have a variety of options.”
Easter feasts will be featured at restaurants at Montgomery Bell, David Crockett, Pickwick Landing, Natchez Trace, and Paris Landing state parks. Events for the weekend include Duck River Day at Henry Horton, egg hunts at T.O. Fuller, Falls Creek Falls, and Tims Ford state parks, and golf will be available at nine courses as part of the Tennessee Golf Trail.
