Visitor centers and administrative offices will open at 12:00 p.m. If overnight weather conditions warrant delaying our opening further, an update will be provided tomorrow.

Currently all roads are closed in the park except for the following: Newfound Gap Road from Gatlinburg to Sugarlands Visitor Center, the Spur between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, and Newfound Gap Road from Cherokee to Smokemont Campground.
