Located on the shores of Norris Reservoir, Loyston Point Campground and Day-use Area was developed by the Tennessee Valley Authority (www.tva.gov). Currently the campground and day use area are managed by the commerical operator RRM (http://camprrm.com/ ) through an agreement with TVA. The campground is named for Loyston Point located at point 19 on the reservoir. This recreational area offers campsites with electrical hook ups, a swimming beach with ADAAG accessibility on Norris Reservoir, and the Hemlock Bluff National Recreation Trail along the steep ridges and bluffs of Norris Reservoir. The Hemlock Bluff National Recreation Trail is named for the prominence of hemlocks in the hardwood forest that the trail traverses. The trail is a seven-mile loop along the steep ridges and bluffs of Norris Reservoir. The campground features sixty-four campsites, 39 with electric hookups. Restrooms with heated showers and flush toilets, dump station, picnic tables, swimming beach, and boat ramp.
Camp Right Tips for Eco-friendly Camping
This is a perfect time for you to think about ways to cut down on energy, gas, and water use while you camp. It isn’t just good for the planet; it’s also good for your pocketbook. If you are going to be away from your camper for over 8 hours, please turn off your AC unit, lights, water heaters, fans, and turn off your water supply. This conserves resources, reduces the wear and tear on your expensive equipment, and eliminates the risk of plumbing failure that could cause expensive damage to your camping unit.
Remember, outdoor appliances (eg, refrigerators and freezers) and electrical pest control devices are prohibited at TVA campgrounds. Washing campers, vehicles, or boats is also prohibited.
People who camp at TVA Campgrounds know the value of nature. Please take pride as you lead the charge toward keeping costs low and following energy and water-saving actions to make TVA Campgrounds a sustainable and enjoyable place to be.
NEW Firewood Recommendations for TVA Campgrounds
Camping with campfires is a traditional way of enjoying the outdoors. However, moving firewood from county to county can spread pest infestations that kill trees. To prevent the spread of these destructive pests, TVA recommends buying firewood that was cut locally, preferably within the same county where it will be burned.
