• Volume: 420,000 Acre Feet
Old Hickory Lake is a reservoir in north central Tennessee. It is formed by the Old Hickory Lock and Dam, located on the Cumberland River approximately 25 miles upstream from Nashville. The city of Hendersonville is situated on the northern side of the lake, and Old Hickory, is located on the southern side of the lake. The dam and lake are named after President Andrew Jackson, who was nicknamed "Old Hickory." He also lived in the vicinity, at The Hermitage.

The lock, dam, powerhouse and lake are operated and supervised by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers'. Construction started in January 1952, and the dam was completed in June 1954.

Rock Castle, the former historic home of Daniel Smith, is located along this lake in Drakes Creek. Smith is known for his contributions in settling Hendersonville, TN. Public accommodations include eight marinas, two Corps-operated campgrounds, and 41 boat access sites, as well as the Old Hickory Lake Arboretum.
