Tennessee State Parks New Reservation System
Tennessee State Parks is going under a reservation system, implented on the 3rd of December of this year. Not all parks are under this system yet.
I live about 25 miles from the Cedars of Lebanon State Park. We have camped there many times this past year. I have gone over on a Wednesday, found a spot and set up camp. The DW works so she comes over after work, stays the night and if she has to work the next day, drives in from the campground. I have always been able to find a site, even if I go on a Thursday or Friday morning.
This state park has three different campgrounds, #1, #2, and #3. #1 is pull thru's., mixed with 30 and 50 Amp service. It stays open all year. #2 is 30 Amp only, all spots are back-in's. Several of the spots went down this year because of electrical problems, they are limited to PUPs and tents. Campground #3 is limited to PUPs and tents, 20 Amp service only. This campground has paved spots except around the tables and firepits. Campgrounds 2 and 3 are closed during the winter monthhs. From what I understand the campground is supposed to be upgraded in the fiscal year 2014.
Now, I need to call the reservation system to see how it will work. I just hope that it doesn't get confusing and I have to tie up money in advance for camping in 2013. I don't mind booking the COE sites because I can see what spot I want. Sometime we like to do the spur of the moment in going camping. I know that many others also do this based on their work schedules.
