Surrounded by beautiful hardwood forests and miles of Norris Lake shoreline, Norris Dam State Park is a recreational heaven. Paddlers and anglers seek to explore the 700 miles of pristine shoreline while land adventurers wander through miles of scenic trail that weaves through the park's valleys and ridges. The state park also features a full line of sporting amenities, a swimming pool and family activities. Two camping areas are within the park and one primitive site is nestled deep in the woods. Trails are multi-use and connect with the Norris Watershed Trail System. The River Bluff Wild Area is adjacent to the park as well. Park rangers lead guided spring wildflower hikes. We'll keep you posted on our event calendar.
Norris Dam State Park provides trail systems in three separate areas and on both sides of Norris Lake. In total, there are 20 miles of wonderful multi-use, natural surface trails. Ten miles of trail lie on the west side of the lake and the other 10 on the east side abutting and connecting to the Norris Watershed Trail System. Within the Park, the Andrew Ridge Trail System has 5.6 miles of wooded trails located near the campground and another 1.5 miles of trail off Village Green Drive. The Marine Railway Loop offers 4.3 miles of trail and lies 0.2 outside the park entrance on Hwy 441. The lake trails can be accessed by parking at the Visitor's Center east of the dam or from the Norris Watershed Trails.
