Tennessee State Parks will have Mother’s Day meals May 8 at restaurants at Cumberland Mountain State Park in Crossville, Montgomery Bell State Park in Burns, David Crockett State Park in Lawrenceburg, and Natchez Trace State Park in Lexington.

“We want everyone to know state parks are a great way to enjoy a family outing for Mother’s Day,” said Jim Bryson, deputy commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. “It’s an opportunity to show Mom how much you care about her, enjoy a nice meal and enjoy the surroundings of the outdoors on a spring day.”
