COVID-19 and TN State Parks
Tennessee State Parks remain open as we monitor COVID-19 and the impact of coronavirus in our state. We are taking the CDC’s recommended precautions as we work to provide a safe environment for our visitors.
Day-use Visitors
Our parks remain free to enter and enjoy. One of the benefits of the outdoors is the opportunity to find solitude and relaxation with a hike, jog or bike ride. We are taking the recommended precautions from the CDC to maintain clean and sanitary public spaces (visitor centers, restrooms, etc.). There is a state park within an hour of every Tennessean. Your nearby state park is still open and providing outdoor recreation opportunities.
Park Event Attendees
At this time, the continuation of park-scheduled events is determined on a park-by-park basis. If you have concerns about a particular event, please call the park that is hosting the event. For events hosted by other organizations at the park, please contact that particular host organization.
What are Tennessee State Parks doing?
Our employees have been instructed to following the guidelines set forth by the Tennessee Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control. This includes frequent washing of hands for at least 20 seconds using soap and hot water, coughing or sneezing into a tissue or arm instead of hands, washing hands after touching their eyes, nose, mouth.
Cleaning and disinfecting restrooms, bathhouses, inn room, cabins and frequently touched surfaces. Restrooms and bathhouses are cleaned daily or more often, based upon the level of park use. We have always cleaned inn rooms and cabins between each guest stay. We are cleaning frequently touched surfaces more frequently with a disinfectant cleaning solution. We are providing antibacterial soaps in all soap dispensers throughout our parks.
What is Radnor Lake Park Management doing?
In alignment with steps outlined by all of our Tennessee State Parks, we have doubled our daily cleaning of restrooms including utilizing two different cleaning agents. In addition, we have ensured that all of our park staff have additional disinfecting supplies and provided additional personal protection equipment for our staff’s day to day activities.
The park/natural area are open during normal posted hours (6am-20 min after dark). While hiking at our natural area, we advise/ask that everyone adhere to the 6’social distancing rule. Thank you in advance and we hope you enjoy your hike at Radnor Lake!
Take steps to protect yourself

Clean your hands often
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
• If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact (6’Rule)
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick
• Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
Take steps to protect others

Stay home if you’re sick
• Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.

Cover coughs and sneezes
• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
• Throw used tissues in the trash.
• Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
