Blog Home : Category Posts : Parking in Pigeon Forge

Coming to a big event in Pigeon Forge? With this handy parking guide, you can find free parking to see excellent events like Rod Run, Dolly's Homecoming Parade, or the Pigeon Forge Patriot Festival.

While it's true that most shops, restaurants, and attractions in Pigeon Forge have parking for customers, vacationers coming for major events are encouraged to use these parking lots instead.

Places To Find Free Parking in Pigeon Forge

Patriot Park

186 Old Mill Ave, Pigeon Forge, TN 37863

Patriot Park on the banks of the Little Pigeon River offers lots of free parking. Not only is this area close to the Historic Old Mill, but it's also home to the main trolley office in Pigeon Forge. From here, visitors can catch the trolley to access:

  • The North Parkway
  • The South Parkway
  • Dollywood
  • The Gatlinburg Welcome Center

For more information on the Pigeon Forge Trolley, visit this website and use this trolley map to plan your route.

Not only is parking at Patriot Park free, but using the trolley service is cheaper than paying for parking at destinations like Dollywood Theme Park.

From Patriot Park, you can also access the Riverwalk Greenway and the Pigeon Forge Parkway. Most of the Pigeon Forge Parkway is pedestrian friendly complete with crossing signs and sidewalks.

Pigeon Forge Municipal Parking Lot

2936 Teaster Lane Pigeon Forge, TN 37863

Located just a short walk from the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge, you'll find the Pigeon Forge city lot.

Pigeon Forge Parking at the Island
