Pickwick Dam Campground is nestled cozily in the pine trees below the TVA Pickwick Dam, on the Tennessee River, near Savannah, TN. The campground is flat with 92 interior campsites across the road from the river. It is laid out in 3 loops, loop A, B, & C. Each site has electric & water hook up and four of the sites meet ADA guidelines. Nine additional tents sites are located across the road from the interior sites and are directly on the waterfront. There are a total of three bathhouses, one in each loop with warm showers and flush toilets. The entry roads are paved and each campsite is graveled with a picnic table, fire pit, grill or combo. A dump station is located in the campground for the campers to use at no charge.
Recreational Activities: Across from the campground is a public fishing and boat ramp area. Pickwick is popular for boating, kayaking & canoeing. It has a reputation of being an excellent sports fishing area, noted for its record size small mouthed bass & catfish.
Pickwick Dam Campground has a dedicated web site with more about rates and services here.
