Explore Pickett State Fire Tower

Jamestown, Tennessee


Added by Jared Beeler

Amazing views of Pickett State Park and Big South Fork

This tower was built by the CCC in the 1930s. The tower is easy to climb and safer than most fire towers. The top of the tower is open so you can get a 360 degree view of the surrounding area. The tower is located within the Pickett State Park and is right on the side of the road and has easy access and parking. There are a lot of caution signs at the base of the fire tower but they all say you can climb the tower at your own risk. The inside of the tower has not been cleaned in a long time so there is evidence of an owls nest inside and some broken glass so I suggest wearing close toed shoes.
