I recently enjoyed a scenic drive to Norris Dam, located along the Clinch River between Anderson & Campbell counties, Tennessee.

The hydro-electric dam opened on March 4, 1936, after nearly 2.5 years of construction. It stands 265-feet tall by 1860-feet wide, and has a maximum generating capacity of 126 megawatts.

Norris Dam State Park includes more than 4000 acres on Norris Reservoir, the largest reservoir on a tributary of the Tennessee River. The park also operates a fully equipped marina with boat ramp, which is available to the general public.
