Smoky Mountain Parking Pass Scam Alert! Great Smoky Mountain Park officials are investigating an online scam selling fraudulent parking tags.
An unnoficial National Park Service website is directing individuals and organizations to a website titled “Smokies Park Pass.” This website appears to belong to the park partner, Great Smoky Mountains Association (GSMA). It is not a GSMA or NPS website. Do not visit or buy parking tags from this website.
One hundred percent of the funds generated by park fees stay in Great Smoky Mountains National Park to improve visitor safety, increase park ranger presence and to repair, enhance and maintain public park facilities.
