Smoky Mountains to Require Parking Passes

Smoky Mountain Parking Pass

from Great Smoky Mountains National Park

SEVIER COUNTY, Tenn. (WDEF) — The Great Smoky Mountains National Park will require parking tags beginning March 1st, the National Park Service announced on Tuesday.

They say this will not be location specific. This means that a parking tag will be required to park in any designated spot in the Smoky Mountains.

Parking tags are not needed for those passing through and park for less than 15 minutes, they said.

The National Park Service says there will be three parking tag options:

  • Daily – $5
  • Weekly – $15
  • Annual – $40

Parking tags may be purchased onsite or online.

They say digital copies will not be acceptable.

The park service says parking tags must be placed in the front, lower passenger side of the vehicle’s windshield.

A parking tag will only work for a single vehicle, and it must include the license plate number for that vehicle.

Their website says failure to comply may result in a warning, citation or the vehicle being towed.
