Claiborne County is located in the northeast part of the state where Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia meet and where historic figures like Daniel Boone and Thomas Walker led the westward migration that made America the country it is today. Its county seat is Tazewell. Claiborne County consists of over 400 square miles of picturesque mountain scenery, rolling valleys, beautiful rivers and lakes. The surrounding area offers a little bit of everything for the whole family.
From the one of a kind Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum in Harrogate to the hiking trails and quaint shops of the town of Cumberland Gap to the 800 miles of shoreline of Norris Lake and the challenging 18-hole championship Woodlake Golf complex, visitors are sure to find that coming to Claiborne County is a trip worth making.
Big Barren Creek rises in the western section of Tazewell and flows southwestward for approximately 10 miles before emptying into the Norris Lake impoundment of the Clinch River. The streams in the eastern section of Tazewell are part of the watershed of the Powell River, a Clinch tributary that flows westward a few miles north of Tazewell. Hiking, fishing, hunting, boating, exploring, and tubing are just a few of the things to fill your family's days in Claiborne County.
