Norris and Big South Fork Area Campgrounds Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Norris, Tennessee, started out as a planned community for the workers constructing Norris Dam. The original town plan was adopted from England’s garden city movement of the 1890s—the buildings and houses were built on smaller lots with large open areas known as commons. The original houses were built from twelve basic designs, and today you can still see many of these first buildings. The town has grown but has maintained its roots as a family-friendly community.

The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area was set aside to protect this section of the Cumberland Plateau’s natural beauty and to provide economic growth from recreation instead of coal mining and timber cutting. The area is maintained by the National Park Service and provides such outdoor activities as kayaking, canoeing, rafting, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, hunting, and fishing. The 110,000-acre recreation area is shared by Tennessee and Kentucky.

This guide contains information on 8 individual campgrounds in the Norris and Big South Fork area."
