Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (AP) - Three Tennessee state parks have been listed among the Top 100 family friendly places to boat and fish in the United States.

Paris Landing State Park, Pickwick Landing and Tims Ford were selected by Take Me Fishing, a national campaign started by the nonprofit organization Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation to encourage participation in recreational boating and fishing.

Criteria for the top places included having a public body of water within an hour of a major city and good fishing opportunities.
