Norris Dam State Park sprawls over more than 4,000 acres along the shores of Norris Lake at the site of Norris Dam. This was the first of a series of dams built by the Tennessee Valley Authority beginning in 1933 and is situated in the Ridge and Valley Region of East Tennessee. Virgin forests, a shimmering blue lake, caves, scenic valleys, sparkling streams and abundant wildlife are among the natural wonders of Norris.
Great emphasis is being placed on historical interpretation at the Park. The Lenoir Pioneer Museum, an 18th century gristmill, a threshing barn and a shop featuring authentic Tennessee crafts are among the cultural attractions for park visitors.
