Norris Lake Houseboat Rentals

The Tennessee River has numerous reservoirs off its tributaries, but Norris Lake is the largest and most popular. There are an astounding number of marinas along the shore, but because Norris Lake's hundreds of miles of shoreline, it still manages to maintain its wild, forested atmosphere. It's not just an atmosphere, wildlife — everything from wildflowers to songbirds to fish — is plentiful, and you can see much of it from the deck of your houseboat.

Renting a personal watercraft or powerboat along with your houseboat is an excellent way to explore the multitude of coves and gorgeous tree-shaded inlets. Norris Lake also is an excellent lake for trout and bass fishing — in fact, the largest brown trout ever caught in Tennessee was caught here. The lake's warm waters also make for pleasant swimming.

Whether you prefer exploring the lake from the top deck of your houseboat, zipping along on a speedy personal watercraft, or while swimming in the water itself, Norris Lake has plenty to do — both on and off the shore.
