Our Destination Recommendations
Here are our favorite things to see and do in and around Byrdstown, TN and the Cumberland Plateau
Some are well know, some not so well known. Have a look around as we have included photos, videos, information and links.
They are in no particular order.
Boating on Dale Hallow Lake
Sunset Marina is the closest Marina to Wolf River Retreat. Star Point Resort and Eagle Cove Resort are also great options for boating in this area of Dale Hallow Lake.
Sunset Marina is Dale Hallow Lakes’s most accessible marina. The marina has pontoons in a variety of sizes, jet skis, ski boats, fishing boats, and water sport accessories for rent from the Ship Store. Dale Hollow Lake may be famous for its fishing, but with the rolling hills of undeveloped shoreline, Dale Hollow has become the ideal family vacation destination.
Lakeside Sno Address: 111 Frisco Lane, Byrdstown, TN 38549
Our family trips to the lake are not complete without a couple of stops to Lakeside Sno! It is located off Hwy 111 just after you leave Sunset Marina and cross over the bridge it will be on the right side of the road!
Colditz Cove Natural Area
Colditz Cove is a 165-acre natural area located approximately two miles east of Allardt in Fentress County. Its most impressive feature is Northrup Falls. This is one of Tennessee’s most stunning waterfalls plunging more than 60 feet over a protruding rock ledge into a scenic, narrow, gorge along Big Branch Creek.
This is one of our favorite hikes. We always try to go after we have had a recent rain when the waterfall is running strong. Make sure to bring extra shoes because it will be very messy and some areas you go thru will be muddy and wet.
Hiking in Big South Fork National Recreation Area
Twin Arches is our favorite hike in Big South Fork. Be sure to hike on top of the arches-it is a little difficult climbing over a few boulders, but it is so worth it. The views from the top are breath taking.The rock formations are amazing on this hike!
Cordell Hull Birthplace and State Park
This historic park is notable for its opportunities to learn about the Nobel Prize winner, Cordell Hull. A library that has his complete book collection, a cave to explore, and a lookout spot, are all some of the attractions at this park. More information on this park and many more can be found at the TN State Parks website. The museum is very small but quite interesting and the cave hike is one of my kid’s favorite hikes-just make sure you bring a flashlight.
Highland Manor Winery-Jamestown
Discover Tennessee’s Oldest Winery located on the Cumberland Plateau, Highland Manor Winery in Jamestown, TN has produced fine Tennessee wines for more than three decades.
Pickett State Park
Our favorite hikes in Pickett State Park are the Hazard Cave and Natural Bridge Trail. The kids also love the swinging bridge.
This park contains a museum, small lake, and over 50 miles of hiking trails through the wilderness of Pickett State Park, making it the perfect outdoor experience.
Sgt. /Alvin C. York /State Historic Park
Sergeant Alvin C. York State Historic Park in Pall Mall, Tennessee is really close by and pays tribute to one of the most decorated soldiers of World War I. The park includes a visitor center modeled after York’s general store, his two-story house, a gristmill, the York Bible School, and various picnic facilities.
