Great Smoky Mountains National Park confronts COVID19

 

The GRSM has officially closed its Visitor Centers at Sugarlands, Oconoluftee, and Smokemont. Additionally, effective March 23, 2020, all campgrounds, picnic areas, and restrooms closed. The decision was then made to close all trails and road access to the Smokies, effective noon, March 24, 2020, and running until at least April 30, 2020. At that time, the CoVID 19 crisis will be reassessed. This is in response to the Coronavirus closings recommended by the CDC, as well as recent mandated closings made by state and local authorities.
