Campbell County is situated between the Cumberland Plateau in the northwest and the Appalachian Ridge-and-Valley Range in the southeast. This area is characterized by several large, elongate ridges, namely Cross Mountain in the west and Cumberland Mountain, Walnut Mountain, and Pine Mountain to the north. Elevations vary widely across the county, ranging from 3,534 feet at Cross Mountain to slightly less than 1,000 feet a few miles away at Norris Lake - an artificial reservoir. Norris Lake stretches 129 miles long from point to point with over 809 miles of shoreline and contains 33,840 acres of surface space. With that much acreage it provides a ton of boating pleasure and plenty of space for all boaters and their families to experience the crown jewel of the TVA water system.
Much of Norris Lake is contained within Campbell county's boundaries along with several wildlife management areas such as the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area. The county is home to two state parks - Cove Lake State Park near Caryville and Indian Mountain State Park near Jellico, and portions of Norris Dam State Park. There are two trail heads that lead to the Cumberland Trail located in Campbell County.
The 667 acre Cove Lake State Recreational Area is situated in a picturesque valley surrounded by the towering Cumberland Mountains. The Cove Lake visitor is served by ninety-seven (97) campsites. All sites are equipped with water and electrical hookups, and most with grills and tables. A dump station is available, as are modern bathhouses containing hot showers, commodes and lavatories. Cove Lake State Park is located in Campbell County, 30 miles northwest of Knoxville on U. S. 25-W and I-75.
