We stayed just one night while driving our new camper home. It was a beautiful park and our site (27 in the west campground) was in a great spot. Keep in mind, a trailer much longer that 16' will have trouble getting in.
We were right next to a trailhead and that gave us a lot of extra room
Great place to go on a day trip to
Very nice, clean park with lots of nice trails to walk. Enjoyed the lake and river. Only negative comment would be that for the East Campground the road going in is very tight so it is difficult for larger campers to get in and out. Overall we really enjoyed it.
From the looks of it the campings spots themselves look very close together but it is on-top of a hill which has breathing views from the campground itself and the surrounding trails.
Went on a stag tent camping trip. Decent facility for state park. Sites are small wouldn’t recommend large rigs.
This was an overnight stay but wish I’d had more time to explore!
Norris Dam has two campgrounds in different sections. We stayed in the west campground which is a loop with playground and showerhouse in the middle. Nice showerhouse. Okay sized sites with full hookup. We were one of maybe 6 people in the whole campground so it was quiet. Then there was the creepy van down at the end that I avoided.
Hiking and mountain bike trails, plus a huge pool.
Town is close by with a few interesting places to eat.
Norris Dam State Park is my absolute favorite place to go camping! It is so beautiful and the views on the water are breathtaking! They do interactive classes and have a museum on site. This is the birthplace of the TVA and you can learn soooooo much!
Swimming, fishing, hiking, and mtb.
Campground had everything you need but little more. Not a bad place to stay just didn't love being right along the powerline. We drove over to the West Campground and wished we had booked a spot there. Nothing wrong and completely adequate on the East but would highly recommend booking the West Campground if spots are open. You will be more in the timber and shaded by some canopy.
I’ll start by saying the park is beautiful! Views of the lake and dam are breathtaking! Just don’t plan to swim, as there is no lake access point for swimming. You can rent kayaks, boats, paddleboards, etc at the marina, but if you were planning to bring a float and get in the lake, you’ll be disappointed. There’s lots of hiking trails, and the Clinch River Brewing Co is very close too. The east campground is pretty small, and sites are close together. The primitive sites looked better and the cabins looked great. The restrooms were very outdated, and barely any water pressure in the shower. We drove by the west campground and it looked nicer, if we return we will stay on that side.
