These photos offer just a few of the wonderful scenes that are spread throughout Jamestown, Fentress County, and the Big South Fork National River and Recreation area. We invite you to browse our site for a taste of what Fentress County has to offer. With a county population of under 17,000, moderate climate, growing equestrian community, and plenty of gorgeous views and rich history, Fentress County is a unique and diverse area. Whether you come for a short visit, extended stay, or choose to make your home here - you're going to love the beautiful scenery and peaceful lifestyle we appreciate so much.

Fentress County is located on the Cumberland Plateau, and sits on the eastern most section of Middle Tennessee. Operating on Central Time, our neighbors to the east of us refer to us as being on "slow time".

Fentress County is known as the Trail Riding Capital of the Southeast to the equestrian community with hundreds of acres of trails, overlooks, unique geological formations, and waterfalls. Many horse campgrounds, cabins, and stables are located in the county and in and around the parks.

You're sure to find something to keep you as busy or relaxed as you'd like with activities such as horseback riding, hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, ATV riding, camping, rafting, canoeing, swimming, shopping, exploring, and visiting local sites and attractions. Whether you explore by foot, horseback, boat, ATV, car, or RV - you're going to love this place!

Although tourism is a huge part of the local economy, agriculture also has its place. The gently rolling land is conducive to cattle and other farm animals and is well watered by creeks and ponds.
