Great Smoky Mountains National Park opens with much anticipation.
The Covid-19 virus pandemic forced the closure of Great Smoky Mountains nearly two months ago and the public is itching to return to their favorite places in the park. The opening will be done in phases over the coming weeks beginning May 9, 2020.
“We are excited to return to our favorite national park,” said Reba Miller. ” Our family loves the Smoky Mountains and our plan is to picnic in Cades Cove!“
The following roads and facilities will open May 9, 2020. The remaining closed facilities are scheduled to announce their opening dates in the coming weeks.
