15 Reviews of Big Ridge State Park
Very nice campground, people are nice .

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.

The Lake takes the Cake!

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.

Small sites, crowded area

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.

Camping at Big Ridge State Park.

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.

First to Review
Something for everyone. Clean lake, nice facilities, hiking trails of varying degrees of difficulty, gift shop, and a grist mill to check out.

Camping on the lake and enjoying the scenery.
