Pickett CCC Memorial State Park lies within Pickett State Forest, and is adjacent to the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. In 2015, Pickett and Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area became the first state park in the Southeast to earn Silver-tier International Dark Sky Park designation. Visitors can enjoy sweeping, rich views of the night sky similar to those found in many of the Western states. The Museum features interpretative exhibits and artifacts, depicting the Civilian Conservation Corps’ contributions to Tennessee’s parks and natural areas, while recognizing the CCC’s extensive efforts across the country.
