 General Comments
Nice TVA campground about 30 miles north of Knoxville, on Lake Norris. Boat launch, paddle boats, kayaks and paddle boards can be rented. There are no full-hookups, but a honey wagon service is available that will come to your site and empty your storage tanks. Most of the heavily wooded sites are seasonal, so we are focused in this review on the short-term (which are mostly lake view/front).

- Our favorite sites: 7, 13, 33
- Other great sites: 5. 31, 33, 34, 46, 48, 50, 52, 61, 62, 63
- Pretty good sites: 12, 31, 35, 51, 53, 54, 56, 57, 58, 64
