Catfishing and Camping at the Catfish Capital of the World: Savannah, Tennessee


We have a beautiful campsite on the Tennessee River in Savannah, the Catfish capital of the World. The National Catfish Derby’s World Championship of Catfishing is held in Savannah every year. Additionally, the Annual Catfish Festival is held close by in Scottsboro, Alabama. This is the best spot in the world to come and catfish. You will only need to bring yourself and your fishing poles as we will provide everything else.

While Savannah is known as the catfish capital, the Tennessee River offers excellent kayaking opportunities. The property has access to Horse Creek that connects directly to the Tennessee River. A proper boat ramp is available. It will be the perfect spot to go catfishing, kayaking, relax, or enjoy nature. It is within 15 miles of Pickwick Dam.

The campsite will offer a camper with electric and water hookups. Everything is taken care of for you. Just show up and enjoy hassle-free camping.
