The Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway is located in the Mobile District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It joins the Tennessee River in northeastern Mississippi with the old Tombigbee River near Amory in Monroe County. The waterway is 234 miles long and runs from Yellow Creek Port near Picwick Lake through the entire length of Itawamba County north to south to Demopolis, Alabama.
It has 10 lakes, made from 10 locks and dams that allow for a shorter navigational route from the interior United States to the Gulf of Mexico. This scenic waterway provides excellent opportunities for boating, hunting, fishing, picnicking, swimming, and camping.
