Pickwick Landing was a riverboat stop dating from the 1840's. In the 1930's, during the depression, the site was chosen for one of the Tennessee Valley Authority's dams on the Tennessee River. All types of boating are allowed at Pickwick Landing. There are two boat ramps in the park, each of which are available free of charge. Located near the inn, the cabins feature central heat and air, TV, a patio and fireplace. Guests in the cabins enjoy all inn privileges including use of the tennis courts, and swimming pool.
