Water paradise

By Mark Boehler For Pickwick Profiles

Where the state of Tennessee meets the northeast corner of Mississippi and northwest corner of Alabama remains a 43,100-acre TVA reservoir with access to inland waterways from northern states all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

Pickwick Lake is a boater's dream destination, from personal water-crafts, canoes and kayaks â “ to ski boats and bass boats â “ all the way to large houseboats and yachts.

There are quiet coves and inlets to the open waters of Pickwick, large embayments of Yellow Creek and Bear Creek, plus access to the Tennessee River and Tenn-Tom Waterway.

Pickwick is part of the Great American Loop as transient boaters move north and south. The area near Pickwick Dam and the Mississippi â “ Tennessee has much to offer.

Pontoon boat rentals are available at Pickwick Landing State Park Marina, Grand Harbor Marina and Aqua Yacht Marina.

TWRA has boat ramps at the state-line. Others are available at the state park, all of the marinas and below the dam at the TVA campground and The Historic Botel.

There are many boat storage options, boat launch service, boat service and repair, name brand boat dealerships and sales of boating supplies.
