Big ridge has everything you could ask for in a campground for the family
Short drive to marinas. Boat ramps on the grounds. Campsite has views of the lake. Plenty of hiking trails near the campground. Two of the bathrooms were really nice but unfortunately we were close to one that was not as nice. Neighbors were close but we had plenty of space. Definitely a great spot if you are planning on spending majority of your time on the lake!
the place was beautiful but you could really tell the place had been through a drought not long ago. the staff was great and helpful and the views where amazing!
Sites are nice and well maintained just a little close for a state park.Bathhouses could use a little updating but clean.Weekends seem to be busy but during the week campground was very quiet.
Another close and convenient campsite to Knoxville, TN! Several campsites here are conveniently located along Norris Lake. If not on the lake a short 5 minute walk from other sites. This campsite is a great place for those who like to kayak or paddle board in the clean water of Norris Lake. This campground offers large sites with plenty of space and you don't feel like your neighbors are invading your privacy. The bath houses are clean, but the overall campsite could be a little bit better maintained. Some areas had overgrown grass and litter. If it wasn't for the lake I don't think this campsite would have been as good of a visit.
This seems to be a popular area to visit. The sites are small and close together. Not all of them have a suitable tent spot, and there were a lot of RVs. I wish there was a separate area for tents.
That being said, it was fairly peaceful and quiet at night. There is a nearby swimming area, but it was occupied by geese families and there was quite a lot of goose poop. The bathrooms were not well-kept, although there were showers available. The history of the area is interesting, and the lake is quite peaceful.
This is a great place to camp. Clean and friendly, quiet and relaxing. There is truly something for everyone here. Back country camp sites as well as camp ground with electric and bathrooms. I come here more than any other park in the area.
Camping on the lake and enjoying the scenery.
