Nestled in the mountains of the Highland Rim and the main portal to Dale Hollow Lake, Pickett County is the destination for outdoor recreation. We share a rich culture, and hope everyone will come to appreciate country living in Tennessee! Experience the unspoiled, scenic beauty of Dale Hollow Lake, with over 620 miles of undeveloped shoreline and spring-fed waters, on a beautiful houseboat, cabin, cottage or campsite. Unique houseboat rentals range in size and amenities. Visit any of 5 marina and resorts located in Pickett County that offer cabin rentals, chalets, lodges or vacation homes! Enjoy simple evenings getting back to basics with rocking chairs, lake views, campfires, s'mores and fireflies.  Scenic backroads abound dotted by family owned businesses, local restaurants (some with live music on the weekends), and more.  Visit our website to take a peak into our world!
