Special Group Camp and Lodge Message
The Booker T. Washington State Park group camp and group lodge facilities are accepting reservations for the summer and fall 2010 seasons. If additional information is needed, please call our office at (423) 894-4955.
The group lodge at Booker T. Washington consists of three buildings, a well
equipped kitchen/dining hall and two dormitory sleeping quarters with showers.
The group lodge can accommodate up to 42 guests. It is available all year for
weekend and week-long stays. Guests are provided with mattresses, but you will
need to bring your own pillows, sheets, pillow cases, and toiletries.
All reservations need to be made in advance at the park office. All reservations
also have a two-day minimum stay. Prority will be given to long-term camps,
whose reservations can be made up to one year in advance. Reservations for short-term
camps (those staying one weekend) between June 1 - August 31 can be made beginning
March 1st of the same year.
Note: Reservations for the Memorial and Labor Day weekends require at least
a three day rental.
A $100 deposit is required for long-term camp and short term camp. All
deposits must include tax (8.75%) when applicable. If your organization is Tennessee
Tax Exempt, we must have a copy of your agency's tax exemption letter. Also,
please provide the office with the name and number of the groups contact person
as shown at the bottom of this page.
Rates and Check IN/OUT Times:
Check-in is at 5:00pm, check-out is at 10:00am. You may chose to check
out later, up to 1:00 pm for a late fee. Anytime after 1:00pm will be considered
another full day. For current rates, please contact the park.
What You Need To Know:
Get in touch with the ranger on duty once you settle in. He/She will provide
you with a means to leave the park after park hours if necessary, as well as
any recreational equipment you might need. A public phone is located near the
restrooms at the boat dock/pier area. No pets are allowed.
All park public pools will be closed on Monday and Tuesday, except Holiday weeks. Please call the park for those schedules. Lodge and camping guests will pay half price for admission to the pool.
A pavilion with a BBQ pit is located next to the lodge
playground and is for lodge guests use. Please be careful near the grill and
be sure to clean up. We will provide trash bags. Also please be aware that the
park observes a quiet time at 10:00pm each night.
Before checking out, see the ranger on duty. You will need to
let him/her know how many persons you had in the group each night, otherwise
the result will be an assessment of maximum charges. Also, be sure to return
any items given to you to the ranger. The ranger will also look over the facilities
as well. Be sure to cleanup the facility as there is a $35 clean-up fee if left
