Outdoor

The great outdoors of Overton County offers enthusiasts some of the best boating, fishing, kayaking, and hiking around. Our streams and rivers, along with the crystal-clear waters of Dale Hollow Lake, provide perfect destinations for vacations and staycations. There’s plenty to do around town, too. The $2.4M Central Park Livingston, funded entirely by grants, serves as an anchor for the community, offering walking paths, water features with a splash pad, amphitheater, benches, and more. Along with several other Overton County parks, it hosts organized sports for all ages. Hidden Valley Golf and Country Club offers a pro shop and cart rental, members’ lounge, tennis courts, and swimming pool.

Standing Stone State Park

Standing Stone State Park is located in Standing Stone State Forest on the Cumberland Plateau. The park takes its name from the Standing Stone, a 12-foot-tall rock standing upright on a sandstone ledge, which was supposedly used as a boundary line between two Indian nations. When the rock fell, the Indians placed a portion of it upon an improvised monument to preserve it. The stone is still preserved in nearby Monterey, Tenn.

Livingston Central Park

The park, situated just off the historic courthouse square, features an amphitheater, open grassy area, playground, water feature with splash pad, walking trail, and restroom facilities. It’s the long-awaited result of years of planning by a downtown revitalization committee tasked with creating ways to bring more people to the courthouse area to shop, eat, and play.

Hidden Valley Golf & Country Club

Opened in 1966, the 9-hole golf course at the Hidden Valley Golf & Country Club facility in Livingston, Tennessee, features 3,113 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 36.

Dale Hollow Lake

Experience the unspoiled, scenic beauty of Dale Hollow Lake, with over 620 miles of undeveloped shoreline and spring-fed waters, in a beautiful houseboat, cabin, cottage, or campsite. Unique houseboat rentals range in size and amenities. Visit any of five marina and resorts located in Pickett County that offer cabin rentals, chalets, lodges, or vacation homes! Enjoy simple evenings getting back to basics with rocking chairs, lake views, campfires, s’mores, and fireflies. Scenic backroads abound, dotted by family-owned businesses, local restaurants (some with live music on the weekends), and more.

Waterloo Falls

Waterloo Falls is situated on 11 acres on a rolling hill, with over 2,000 feet of river frontage on Spring Creek, a state scenic river. The largest waterfall is approximately 40 feet, and the other is about 5 feet. Between these two waterfalls, there are smaller waterfalls. The water is shallow between the waterfalls, so bring some chairs and kick it on the shoreline or in the river!
