NORRIS LAKE

Whether you are a Skier, Fisherman, Sightseer, Golfer or Sunbather, Norris Lake has it all. Norris Lake was created by the construction of the Norris Dam in 1936. This hydroelectric project was the Tennessee Valley Authority's first.  The lake's beautiful blue-green waters span more than 800 miles of shoreline covering 34,000 acres.  Norris' boundaries extend up the Clinch and the Powell Rivers which feed Norris with clear, pristine waters.  It's an ideal environment for sportsmen and vacationers alike. Norris Lake offers the peace and seclusion you can't find in other areas of the Smoky Mountains. It has remained pristine and uncrowded by over-tourism.

WaterSki Magazine Ranks Norris Lake Number 5 Out of Ten as the Best Lakes to Water Ski.

Norris Lake, with its network of narrow creeks and coves that total 1,100 miles of shoreline and 22 marinas, is the place where skiers need to be. The west side of the lake in particular is devoid of tourists and teeming with inboard owners. It stays calm enough to be home base for a pack of barefooting regulars, while just up Cove Creek is a slalom course and jump ramp maintained by the local ski club. All this on a lake that is annually ranked among the 10 cleanest in the world.

Norris Lake is located in Cumberland Gap and the Historic Wilderness Trail marked by Daniel Boone. Along the 800 miles of shoreline, there are two state wildlife management areas, three state parks, boat docks, county parks, and public access areas.

Norris Lake is well known to anglers for its trophy-size bass and walleye as well as black crappie. The 13-mile stretch of the Clinch River below Norris Dam is a scenic float trip and a renowned trout stream.
