Pickwick Lake Lake Getaways

Less than two hours southwest of Nashville sits Pickwick Lake, created under the operation of the Tennessee Valley Authority. Throughout its existence, Pickwick Lake has drawn visitors from around Tennessee and the entire country at large, for both its beautiful, unspoiled surroundings and great fishing. Indeed, Pickwick Lake vacation home rentals are the perfect place to stay when attempting to set the next catfish or smallmouth bass record (Pickwick Lake has been the location for several fishing records).

Pickwick Landing was a riverboat stop during the 1840's. In the 1930's, during the depression, the site was chosen for one of the Tennessee Valley Authority dams on the Tennessee River. What today comprises the park was once the living area for the TVA construction crews and their families. The property passed from TVA to the Tennessee State Park system in the early 1970's. It was during this time that the inn, cabins, marina and picnic shelters were developed. Today Pickwick Landing is one of the most visited parks in the system.

Excellent fishing, a beautiful and challenging golf course, a full service marina and great accommodations are all available at Pickwick Landing State Park.
