Great Smoky Mountains National Park

On June 15, 1934, Great Smoky Mountains National Park was officially established by The National Park Service (NPS). The park was created to protect the last of the southern Appalachian forest which once covered more than 4 million acres, but was virtually eliminated by logging and fire.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park attracts nearly 10 million people each year. It is the most visited park in the United States.
