Pickwick Lake and the Tombigbee Waterway
Welcome to one of the South's most attractive "Great Outdoors" adventures. Pickwick Lake and the Tombigbee
Waterway; both are rich in history, heritage, nature, and recreation.
Ridges along Pickwick Lake and the Tennessee River system are known for the abundance of Indian artifacts that
are commonly found on the banks of the water and on the ridges looking over the bodies of water. Only minutes
from Pickwick Lake are the battle grounds of Shiloh National Military Park. Shiloh was the scene of the first major
battle of the Civil War in April of 1862; 24,000 soldiers were killed in this two day battle that covered about
4,000 acres and the door was opened for the federal forces to take control of the confederate railway.
Camping, and Hunting are among the many activities available along the 234 miles of waterway and
40,000 acres of lakes that make up the waterway region. The fishing is unparalleled with an abundance of enormous
Catfish, Bass reaching 14 pounds or larger and Crappy fishing that is unsurpassed. Big game hunting in the
waterway region is among the top in the country with the thriving deer population, Mississippi Flyway waterfowl
hunting, and with the spring Turkey season comes the thunderous echoes of Gobbling Toms that can be heard
along the banks from the Gulf of Mexico up the Tombigbee all the way to Pickwick Lake in Tennessee.
In addition to the Camping, Hunting, and Fishing the Tennessee Tombigbee draws boating enthusiast from all
over the country into the safe waters of Pickwick Lake. The towering ridges and sprawling Oak trees at Pickwick
Lake are the surroundings for one of the prettiest bodies of water in the country with placid coves that are ideal for
water skiing, a wonderful safe haven for large vessels during the hurricane season in the Gulf of Mexico, and the
wide open main channel of the lake offers a constant breeze ideal for sail boats. Housing fifteen marinas from
Kentucky all the way to the Gulf of Mexico; Pickwick Lake and the Tombigbee waterway truly hold all the keys
to a boating enthusiast heart.
