Cove Lake State Park

Updated: Nov 30, 2022

The Tennessee Valley Authority began building Norris Dam in the 1930s, which created the Norris Reservoir. They then subsequently had to create Caryville Dam to protect the city of Caryville from the reservoir. The CCC began creating structures for a park in the surrounding area in the late 1930s, and it was deeded to the state in 1950. Today, it has 606 acres, 106 campsites, about three miles of hiking, paved biking trails, fishing, birding, a restaurant, volleyball, basketball, tennis courts, a playground, an observation deck, and a visitors center. We saw a gorgeous crane, and the lake and mountain views are stunning!
