Norris Lake Real Estate


Lake Kayaking

Norris Reservoir (aka Norris Lake), created by Norris Dam, extends 73 miles up the Clinch River and 56 miles up the Powell River.  Norris Lake features several parks along its shoreline and is a popular visitor destination.  Watersports, including boating, fishing, water-skiing and swimming are popular here.

Much of the Norris Lake shoreline consists of undeveloped parkland.  This makes Norris an ideal spot for those looking for a more quiet setting.  The Chuck Swan State Forest occupies 24,702 acres of land adjacent to the lake in the Sharps Chapel area.  Big Ridge State Park sits on 3,687 acres near Maynardville.  And Norris Dam State Park covers 4,038 acres near Lake City.  All of these parks offer public recreation opportunities.  Lakefront property on Norris Lake is available and the views and recreational access are excellent.

Norris is a big, sprawling lake that covers lots of territory.  The land surrounding the lake is in five different counties - Anderson, Clairborne, Campbell, Grainger, and Union.  The lake is about a 30 to 60 minute drive from downtown Knoxville, depending on what part of the lake you're driving to.   Map of Norris Lake.
