Pickwick Landing was a riverboat stop dating from the 1840s. In the 1930s, during the Depression, the site was chosen for one of the Tennessee Valley Authority's 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 1970s. It was during this time that the original inn, cabins, marina and picnic shelters were developed. Today Pickwick Landing is one of the most visited parks in the system.
Pickwick Landing State Park is located just south of Pickwick Dam, 12 miles south of Savannah, in Hardin County. The lake and river offer excellent fishing, boating, swimming and a marina. Accommodations on the park include campsites, cabins, and a modern 119 room Inn that also has over 6000 sq. ft. of conference space and a southern style restaurant. There is also a beautiful and challenging par 72, championship 18-hole golf course. The park contains 1,400 acres of forested hills and hollows. There is a 2.8 mile trail to explore and enjoy the wildlife and plant life around the lake. Picnicking, swimming and play fields are also available.
