Great Smoky Mountains National Park
This 520,000-acre oasis is known for bio-diversity, beauty, and remnants of Southern Appalachian culture.
Nearly 850 miles of trails and free entrance help make Great Smoky Mountain National Park a popular choice for hiking, waterfalls, camping and more.
Beginning March 1, 2023, a valid parking tag will be required for all visitors parking for more than fifteen minutes in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Three parking tag durations will be available for purchase for all vehicle types and sizes:
Daily – $5
Up to 7 Days – $15
Annual – $40
Parking tags will be per vehicle, not per person. Parking tags will not be location specific. A parking tag will be required to park in any designated parking spot anywhere within the boundaries of the Smokies. All revenue generated through parking tag sales will stay in the Smokies to provide sustainable, year-round support for America’s most visited national park.
Operational details, including how to purchase parking tags, will be posted on the park’s website at https://www.nps.gov/grsm/planyourvisit/fees.htm.
