Quality of Life
Living to the Fullest.
With charming historic towns and the amenities of urban neighbors, Carroll County has a way of life that combines art, outdoor adventure, sports and history. Bethel University and the Dixie Carter Center for the Performing Arts bring a heavy emphasis to the arts, with classes, galleries, theater productions and music.
The Tennessee River, Kentucky Lake and the Thousand Acre Recreation Lake are perfect for boating and other water sports. Fine fishing brings sportsmen in search of bluegill, bass, crappie and other fish. Two state parks, several golf courses, a state-of-the-art shooting park and Bethel University sports keep outdoor types and sports fans busy all year.
Historic sites, great local restaurants and a friendly community make Carroll County a great place to call home.
