Plenty To Do

So Much to Enjoy!

We invite you to make a day trip to Clay County, or maybe spend a weekend. You’ll find plenty to do.

A Unique Town. . .

We’ve all been to Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville, right? For some of us, things are a little too fast-paced there. Those wonderful Tennessee towns have a lot to offer, but when was the last time you spent any quality time in a unique little town?

In Clay County, “Mom & Pop” still rules in business and home cooking is a way of life. In our town, the living is slow and easy, the people are friendly and the prices are affordable.


If you like the Great Outdoors (water in particular), there’s no better place to float your boat, or to simply admire the scenery.

Clay County boasts six marinas on the lake, and each of them is just a bit different from the others. You’ll have no problem finding one that can help you with your outdoor needs, and there are multiple places to launch your own boat.


If you love the water, we also have the Cumberland and Obey Rivers, where canoeing and kayaking are becoming more and more popular. A great campground is located just below Dale Hollow Dam on the Obey.

Great Local Eats

A lot of places want to brag about how many chain restaurants they have, but we like to brag about our great local eateries. We have meat and three, all-you-can-eat catfish to giant burgers and a unique brand of barbecue found only in these parts. There’s no reason to leave Clay County hungry.


Celina has become something of a “boutique and antique” town. If you like looking for old collectibles, primitives and other unique items, we’ve got it. Ladies, we have several boutiques that folks are driving from far and near to visit. Plus, A Southen Marketplace Barn Sale brings vendors from far and wide three times per year.


We guarantee you’ll be treated with a big dose of Southern hospitality while staying in Clay County. There are AirBnBs, motels, houseboats, marina cabins and other choices for spending the night or spending the month!

Why wait?

Come up for a day, weekend or vacation. You might like it so well you decide to move here!
