BATHHOUSE UPDATE

GREAT NEWS!  Norris Dam State Park will be receiving a new bath house in the west campground to replace the unit that burned down September 2015. The bad news, the WEST campground will not have a shower house during the installation period. Work will begin November 1, 2017 and will continue for approximately 6 weeks. Water and electricity will still be available at each camping site.  Port-a-johns will be on site for restrooms. THE EAST CAMPGROUND WILL BE UNDER NORMAL OPERATIONS. Pardon our dust as we improve your State Park.

Campground

Rates: $10.50 — $24 Taxes and fees are not included. Rates subject to change. $5 reservation fee per site is non-refundable.

Campgrounds

The park has two campgrounds. A dump station is located at each campground. All sites have a table, grill and fire pit. A bathhouse is centrally located in each campground, open during the in-season. A laundromat is located next to the park office, open seasonally. The maximum stay during in-season is 14 nights, and during off-season is 28 nights. Please note: The men's bathhouse in the west campground is closed indefinitely, however we have a temporary portable facility available. For more information, please call the park directly.

The east side has 25 sites with water and electric hook-up and 10 primitive sites for tents only, with no water and electric hook-up. The west side has 50 sites with water and electric hook-up. The west side also has three paved sites suitable for persons with disabilities. If reserved, proper identification will be required upon check-in. 

New Firewood Policy – Effective June 1, 2016 - DON’T MOVE FIREWOOD

In order to protect our forests and trees from invasive insects and diseases, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Please refrain from bringing untreated wood into the park.

Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase from concessioners in many of the campgrounds as well as from vendors in the communities around the park. Certified heat-treated firewood is clearly marked with a state or federal seal.

The Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive pests are a growing threat to the forests of Tennessee and the surrounding region. To learn more about the pests that threaten Tennessee and what you can do to help prevent the introduction and spread of invasive pests, visit www.protecttnforests.org.
