General Information

Pickwick Landing State Resort Park
Copyright: - Tennessee State Parks
Pickwick Landing State Resort Park
Description - 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.

Attractions - The Pickwick Landing State Park Golf Course is located close to the border of Mississippi and Alabama within the proximity of Pickwick Dam. The course was opened in May of 1973 and is a favorite of the locals as well as destination golfers. Golf Digest has awarded this facility "Three Stars" in the Places to Play category. Every hole is tree-lined and water is found on eight holes. There are a total of twenty-one bunkers found throughout the course. The course is host to the St. Jude's Charity Golf Tournament and hosts several district and regional high school events during the year.

The conference rooms can be tailored to fit a large variety of functions. Each room is equipped with data port access for your computer requirements. Any catering function can be tailored to fit your meeting needs.

Nearby points of interest are the Shiloh National Military Park, Pickwick Dam, Buford Pusser Museum, TN River Museum and the Corinth Historic District.

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

Climate - Tennessee has a temperate climate with short, mild winters. The average annual snowfall for the state is 12 inches. Spring comes in early March bringing flowering trees and shrubs, and warmer weather. Spring temperatures average between 45 and 70 degrees. Summer's full force arrives in the region by mid May, bringing warm weather and higher humidity. The mountains of eastern Tennessee are a great place to escape the hot summer temperatures as the higher elevation cools the air slightly. Cool fall temperatures bring crisp air and brilliant fall colors. Mid to late October is a good time to visit the region to experience the fall foliage.
