History of outdoors and exploration in Tennessee

Tennessee, known as the "Volunteer State," boasts a rich history of outdoor recreation and exploration that dates back centuries. The state's diverse landscape, ranging from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Mississippi River, has long been a natural playground. Early Native American tribes such as the Cherokee were among the first to navigate Tennessee's dense forests and rapid rivers, hunting game and fishing in its abundant waters. In the 19th century, frontiersmen like Davy Crockett further popularized outdoor pursuits in Tennessee, with hunting and fishing becoming integral parts of local culture. The establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 1934 marked a significant milestone in Tennessee's outdoor recreation history, preserving over 500,000 acres of wilderness for future generations to explore. Today, Tennessee continues to be a haven for outdoor adventurers. Its vast network of state parks, wildlife reserves, and national forests offer countless opportunities for hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, and more. Whether you're casting a line in one of Tennessee's renowned trout streams or trekking along the Appalachian Trail's rugged paths, you're participating in a tradition of outdoor exploration that is deeply woven into the fabric of this state's identity. Tennessee is a large agricultural state with $4.3B of ag production, and roughly 85.9% of the land privately owned by farmers and ranchers. The major crops are cow/calf production, soybeans, corn, and broilers (chicken). When planning hunting trips to Tennessee on private lands like farms & ranches, it's important to understand some key dates for farmers and ranchers. Ranchers in this region usually do their calving, brandings and vaccinations anywhere from February through June and will ship cattle in late fall. During these times, they are extremely busy and may be harder to communicate with. Farmers in Tennessee will usually begin planting their crops in late April through June and then will harvest their crops in September, depending on weather.

Popular outdoor activities in Tennessee

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited national park in the United States, provides a stunning backdrop for hiking, camping, and wildlife viewing. With over 800 miles of trails, hikers can immerse themselves in lush forests, discover cascading waterfalls or challenge themselves with strenuous treks to panoramic mountain vistas. For anglers, Tennessee is a dream destination. The state boasts over 20,000 miles of streams and 29 reservoirs teeming with bass, trout and catfish. The Clinch River and South Holston River are particularly popular spots for fly fishing. Adrenaline junkies can get their fix white-water rafting on the Ocoee River or rock climbing at Fall Creek Falls State Park. Meanwhile, bird watchers will appreciate the Reelfoot Lake State Park - a major stopover point for migratory birds. In addition to natural attractions, Tennessee also offers outdoor cultural experiences such as exploring historic Civil War sites or walking the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway. Whether you're an avid hiker, angler or history enthusiast - Tennessee's outdoors has something to offer everyone.

Popular counties for outdoor activities in Tennessee

Sevier County, home to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, offers activities such as hiking, fishing, and wildlife viewing. With over 800 miles of trails and 2,115 miles of streams, it's a paradise for those who love to explore. For anglers, Lake County is a top choice due to Reelfoot Lake's reputation as a premier crappie fishing spot. This ancient natural lake also offers excellent opportunities for bird watching and hunting. On the other hand, if you're into rock climbing or caving, Putnam County is your destination. It boasts numerous sandstone and limestone cliffs suitable for all skill levels and some of the most spectacular caves in the state. Meanwhile, Rhea County offers fantastic white-water rafting experiences on the rapids of the Piney River. For hunters looking for their next big game hunt or birding expedition, Henry County is hard to beat. Known as the "Deer Capital of Tennessee," it provides ample opportunities to hunt white-tailed deer in its vast woodlands. Plus, with Kentucky Lake's expansive waters attracting numerous migratory birds each year, it's also an ideal spot for waterfowl hunting.
