About the Community
Campbell County is a Rural Community but close to metropolitan city, Knoxville, TN.
Water related recreational opportunities await in one of the TVA's cleanest lakes. Over 20 marinas on the lake offer a variety of accommodations from hotels, condos, homes and campgrounds on the lake to mobile houseboats and float houses on the lake. Most of the marinas offer ski boat, fishing boat, pontoon boat, party barge and jet ski rentals, restaurants on the lake overlooking the lake, along with some of the most friendly and helpful people around.
Nestled in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains, about 20 miles north of Knoxville just off I-75, is Norris Lake. Well known for its fishing, skiing and boating on its deep clean waters, the lake consists of two major rivers and numerous creeks. It extends 56 miles up the Powell River and 73 miles into the Clinch River. Since the lake is not fed by another major dam the water is cleaner and once the sun begins to warm the water in late May, it tends to maintain a steady warm temperature until fall.
Along the 809 miles of shoreline many activities can be enjoyed like golfing, hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing and camping. With hundreds of secluded coves, 3 state parks, two wildlife management areas and 59 public access sites. The shoreline includes over 50 miles of islands, numerous picnic areas, caves, cliffs, beaches and gradual sloping shorelines. An abundance of wildlife can be spotted including deer, turkey, great blue herons and a few eagles along with cows and horses grazing at the shoreline.
Norris Lake extends into five counties: Anderson, Campbell, Claiborne, Grainger, and Union.
