While only 15 minutes from the third largest city in Tennessee, Union County offers a full range of outdoor recreation. Boat rental is available for those who wish to enjoy the waters of Norris Lake. Created by the formation of Norris Dam, Norris Lake is known country wide for its superb bass and striper fishing. It is rated as one of Tennessee's cleanest lakes and is fed by two rivers.
Cabin rentals are available for hunters, fishers and hikers. Miles of walking trails wait to be explored.
Guided fishing and hunting are two large businesses in our county. Many local people enjoy taking the tourists out for a day.
Union County also has one of Tennessee's last drag strips. Step back to yester-year as locals as well as sponsored cars compete for the best time at the Knoxville Dragway.
