Morgan County, Tennessee Welcomes You !

Hey, if we had a red carpet, we’d roll it out just for you! We’re tickled you decided to visit our beautiful county. Please make yourself right at home. Morgan County is all about family, friends, and fun. We are a community which holds strongly to traditional values with the understanding that there are diverse perspectives and we certainly respect yours.

If you’re here to enjoy Parks, Morgan County is the place for you. We are probably the only place in the United States with two National Parks within our boundaries: Obed Wild and Scenic River and Big South Fork. These are places that provide numerous opportunities for outdoor fun and adventure. You can enjoy camping, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, hiking, bicycling, and much, much more at these National Parks.

You’ve got to do your best, while you and the family are here, to visit Frozen Head State Park, Lone Mountain State Forest, Catoosa Wildlife Management Area, and Historic Rugby. These are local treasures that are full of wonderful memories that are yet to be made for you and your family.

If you’re in Morgan County in the summer time, make sure you attend the Deer Lodge Independence Day Celebration which includes a parade, lots of food, and activities all day long. Another great summertime event is the Outdoor Show which takes place the third Saturday in July. This festival is held around the Courthouse Square and there are lots of fun and entertainment for every member of the family.

Morgan County is a growing, close knit community that welcomes you and your family to visit a while and if you like us, we want you to consider settling down amongst us and becoming  a part of our community. “We’ll treat you so many different ways, you’re bound to like one of ’em!”
