Trail Closures: Rock Creek Trail and portions of the old Camp Sam/Kinchen Trail will be closed, due to hazardous conditions, for rehabilitation. Visitors can access High Point Trail from the newly rerouted 1.5-mile multi-use Camp Sam Trail. Visitors can access CCC Camp Kinchen from the trailhead just across from the Historic Cottage. We appreciate your patience as we work to build a sustainable trail system.
The Norris Dam State Park pool will not reopen as of Summer, 2022. Unfortunately, the pool is 45 years old, visitation is down 29 percent. Due to these factors, Tennessee State Parks can no longer justify to Tennessee taxpayers the costs associated with keeping this pool in operation. However, we are excited to have the opportunity to invest in a more fiscally responsible outdoor recreation option Norris Dam State Park that would provide year-round benefits.
