The rebuild of the Inn at Fall Creek Falls State Park is on schedule, according to Communications Director David Roberson with the Tennessee Department of General Services. Construction of the new inn, that was demolished the later part of 2018, is expected to be completed this fall after years-long work on the site and construction started in January 2019.

Roberson said the estimated completion date is the fall of 2021 and all major milestones have been met by the contractor thus far.

“We are excited about the progress of the new Lodge at Fall Creek Falls and look forward to its opening later this year,” said Keith Pyle, president of BELL Construction, the project’s general contractor. “We’re proud to have contributed to many of the state’s iconic landmarks, including this exciting new resort facility at Tennessee’s premier state park – one of the most scenic outdoor recreation areas in the country. Our team, along with Earl Swensson Associates, the project’s designer, is so pleased to help bring the state’s vision to life.”

    I am so excited to learn that it may be opened this fall. We have been coming to FCF since 1976. Have not missed a single year. We have camped, stayed in the Inn, and the last 3 years we have enjoyed staying in a Villa. We raised our children there. We have stayed as many as three times in a single year, enjoying different seasons. We swam, fished, golfed, as well as enjoying all the activities provided by a wonderful staff. We especially enjoyed the Friday night fish dinners and the wonderful breakfast buffet. I surely hope this will still be available when the facility reopens. Thank you Tennessee State Parks for providing a most wonderful vacation spot for families!
