The gates to the Great Smoky Mountains National park will reopen for five days beginning Wednesday.
Tennessee and North Carolina will be footing part of the bill.
Like other national parks, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has been closed because of the partial federal government shutdown.
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam said the state has sent more than $300,000 to the National Park Service to open the park.
North Carolina's governor said his state will contribute $75,000 to keep the park open Wednesday through Sunday.
The National Park Service says the park costs a little more than $60,000 a day to operate.
