Natural Features:

Old Hickory Lake is a reservoir in north-central Tennessee created by the Old Hickory Lock and Dam.

The lake spans 22,500 acres and receives its primary inflow from the Cumberland River.


Boating and fishing are generally the main attractions for lake-goers, with anglers often catching black bass, crappie and catfish.

The large grassy fields at Lone Pine are perfect for sports like soccer and ultimate Frisbee.


Both group picnic shelters have electric hookups and grills, and each holds up to 50 guests. A boat ramp is available for use.

Nearby Attractions:
