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.
