New Inn, Restaurant and Conference Center being built at Fall Creek Falls State Park

Tennessee State Parks and elected officials broke ground this week for a new inn, restaurant and conference center at Fall Creek Falls State Park, part of a broader $200 million investment in state parks over the last eight years by Gov. Bill Haslam’s administration and the Tennessee General Assembly.
The facility at Fall Creek Falls is part of over $175 million in capital projects appropriated for state parks since 2011.
Fall Creek Falls State Park has seen the renovation of 20 cabins and the refurbishment of an additional 10.
At Fall Creek Falls, the new inn and restaurant are forecast to generate $278,000 per year in sales and occupancy taxes, a growth of $90,000 per year compared to revenue from the previous facility.
