Visitor Center

A trip to the Old Hickory Lake Visitor Center is an excellent way to learn more about the history, navigational facilities, management programs, and recreational facilities of Old Hickory Lake.  The visitor center is located in Rockland Recreation Area, Hendersonville, Tenn.  A display, narrated by country music star Ferlin Husky, depicts the history and development of the Cumberland River and Old Hickory Lake.  Another display features memorabilia of the old navigation locks used on the Cumberland before the advent of the modern multipurpose dams.  Other interactive exhibits provide information about water safety and Corps natural resources management programs.  There are also displays interpreting water resources development in the Cumberland River Basin and the history and mission of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.The Old Hickory Lake visitor center interior (USACE photo by Amy Redmond)Old Hickory Visitor Center and Resource Manager's Office (USACE photo by Amy Redmond)
