Favorite Marinas on Norris Lake in East Tennessee

Jimmy's Place Marina on Norris LakeNorris Lake is a great place to go for a vacation especially if you enjoy water sports like fishing, water skiing and even relaxing on the quiet shoreline of a secluded cove. And with most great lakes like Norris, you’ll find the marinas are a place to dock your boat, grab a bite to eat, drink a cool beverage, purchase fishing supplies, meet new friends, and receive some good fishing tips. Here are two favorite marinas on Norris Lake from the local people who know at Norris Lake Cabin Rentals. When you rent a beautiful vacation cabin from these locals, great marinas are just the beginning of your awesome vacation.


Donna’s Favorite Marina on Norris Lake - Norris Landing Marina

Norris Landing Marina is located on Norris Lake at the waterfront community of Lake Norris Landing in Tazewell, TN.  Here’s a fantastic marina with loads of opportunity to dock your boat, enjoy great food and  have some fun.

Jimmy’s Place is a restaurant with a full bar located at the Norris landing Marina. The crispiest and most delicious chicken tenders on Norris Lake can be found at Jimmy’s Place. Families can dine at the restaurant located on the docks, and enjoy finger lickin’ wings, juicy cheeseburgers, or mouth-watering ribeyes to satisfy any hunger.  The staff and owners are very friendly and service is exceptional.  Mixed drinks are also available if soda or water can’t quench your thirst.  
Fourth of July on Norris Lake
We have several cabins close to this marina. If you don’t have a boat, no worries since the marina offers pontoon, fishing boat, and Sea Doo rentals at reasonable rates.  If you are launching your boat from the dock at Norris Landing Marina or if you are out on the water and forgot sunscreen, beer, or drinks the marina has these items available as well as bait, oil and gas. The marina is also easy to access from the water and you won’t have to wait in line behind other boats to get to the dock and fun.  For more information about Norris Landing Marina phone (423) 626-1818.

Jennifer’s Favorite Marina on Norris Lake - Beach Island Marina

Plus some tips on entertainment and the night life on Norris Lake.

I spend every July 4th on Norris Lake because the best fireworks display in Tennessee happens on the lake.   There is something patriotic about hearing the echoes of the booming fireworks while you relax and float in your boat or sit on the shoreline. Several marinas on Norris Lake have a firework show every year that will keep you coming back year after year for your summer vacation. I personally enjoy the fireworks display at  Beach Island Marina, located at 170 Beach Island Rd, Maynardville, TN 37807. (865) 992-3091

Beach Island Marina on Norris Lake

Bubba Brews Sports Pub and Grill

Beach Island Marina is the home of Bubba Brews Sports Pub and Grill, a popular hang out for those who want more than just gas, bait and marine supplies.  The most “adult” fun I have experienced on Norris Lake is at Beach Island Marina while relaxing at a picnic table at Bubba’s, enjoying a cold beverage, and watching my friends sing Karaoke on the dock. 

Entertainment and Nightlife at a Norris Lake Marina

Bubba Brew's Sports Pub and GrillIf you enjoy nightly entertainment with dancing, Cornhole with a bean bag, or just laughing all evening at those attempting to sing, then Beach Island Marina is the place for you! After enjoying the evening on the lake, head back to your cabin by boat, stare into your bonfire along the shoreline. and listen to a friend play guitar. Or watch the stars. Or just listen to the evening sounds. Or even be risque and mark something off your bucket list. That’s right, first make sure no one has a recording device, then shed your clothes, and plunge into the smooth warm water and swim in your birthday suit under the night sky.  Skinny dippin’ is an adrenaline rush everyone should experience at least once and if you should get caught just blame it on the summer heat or Bubba Brews.  But remember, if you decide to take the naked plunge, my best advice is to make certain NO ONE can take your clothes and leave you stranded naked in the water. Just saying.
