When considering a real estate purchase, the only thing more important than the home itself is the neighborhood around it. For those looking to buy Pickwick Lake real estate, we’ve gathered information on everything from disc golf to boat rentals, and even the origins of the community itself, to provide you with all the info you need to make this important decision.

The main attractions in Pickwick are located in the Pickwick Lake State Park. This park was created from the land that served as a home for the Pickwick Dam construction workers and their families known as Pickwick Village. While the dam was completed in 1938, the park didn’t come to be until 1970. Currently, the park contains 1,500 acres of land, and the lake itself has a surface area of over 43,000 acres. The size of the park and lake make them the perfect location for fishing, boating, swimming, camping, and any other outdoor activity you can think of. The park includes an 18-hole golf course that makes up one part of the state-wide Tennessee Golf Trail as well as a disc golf course. Visitors to the park may choose the Pickwick Inn for lodging or the nearby cabins for a little more privacy.

If sleeping indoors isn’t part of your Pickwick plans, the park offers two campgrounds with one on each side of the lake. The Pickwick Landing Campground is located on the same side of the lake as the Pickwick Inn and provides 48 sites with amenities including grills, tables, and a bathhouse. Across the lake, you’ll find the Bruton Branch Primitive Campground with 33 sites, playground, and boat ramp. In case these aren’t enough Pickwick Lake Camping options, the Pickwick Dam Campground located upriver includes 92 campsites, most of which have both electricity and water hook-up available.

Convenient Pickwick Lake boat rentals are provided by the Grand Harbor Marina as well as Pickwick Boat Rentals Inc. at the Pickwick Landing State Park location. Both marinas provide ample space for boats big and small and include full-service ship stores with all the supplies you’ll need out on the lake. One of most popular Pickwick Lake activities is fishing due to Pickwick’s abundance of several species of fish. While good fishing can be had year-round, the star of the show is certainly the local catfish. Visitors from across the country and locals even gather in Pickwick for the annual Catfish World Championship Fishing Tournament.

In addition to the wonderful outdoor opportunities, Pickwick is home to incredibly popular local establishments including Freddy T’s Restaurant and Beach Club and The Outpost, and is located just a short drive away from the Shiloh National Military Park, the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center, and Cherry Mansion. Residents of Pickwick enjoy the best of both worlds with the Southern charm of country living and the convenient proximity to multiple cities. Whether you’re interested in a waterfront luxury dream home or a secluded off-water home to begin taking advantage of all the area has to offer, you can find Pickwick Lake real estate to fit your needs. Take the leap and join in the fun on Pickwick Lake.
