Union County lies immediately north of Knox County, and is divided into two very nearly equal parts by the Clinch River. Powell River forms a part of its northern boundary. These streams, with their tributaries, afford an abundance of water and water power. The area of the county is about 220 square miles. The surface is generally broken, but there are a large number of valleys, furnishing excellent soil. The county contains much valuable timber, but its greatest wealth lies in its mineral resource which are varied and abundant. It contains rich deposits of iron ore, which as yet have been worked to a very limited extent; vast beds of the finest marble; silver-bearing lead ore and zinc.

The Clinch River, Union County's primary stream, flows through the northern part of the county. This section of the river is part of Norris Lake. Big Ridge Dam, a small non-generating dam, impounds an inlet of Norris Lake, creating Big Ridge Lake at Big Ridge State Park. The "Loyston Sea," one of the widest sections of Norris Lake, is located in Union County just north of the state park.

Union County is home to legendary and popular musicians such as Chet Atkins, Roy Acuff and Kenny Chesney and hosts tens of thousands of tourists that annually visit the parks and pristine waterways and shorelines. Located just 15 miles North of Knoxville, Union County has something for everyone with a deep emerald lake nestled in the shadows of the Appalachian Mountains, museums, historic landmarks, quaint shops, and wide open spaces perfect for viewing wildlife or enjoying an outdoor adventure.
