Can’t wait for June to find out! TMC doing a big lake fest . Seems like they have some nice resorts on water , good fuel , and pretty water . Mooring my boat 1st time albeit under dock roof for 7 or 8 nights at Hickory Star staying in a cabin.

norris is the best, although no longer a secret. Weekdays are great. Weekends can get crowded. water is super clean.. plenty of marinas for gas and food.

We go to Norris regularly. Bubba Brews is a good place for food and drink. Hickory Star has food as well. Hickory Star is near the main/wide part of the lake so if its breezy it can get a little rough. You should have some good water between Hickory Star and Bubba Brews. I suspect if you can head east from Bubba Brews there is some quiet water there. I have never been that far. My home base is at the other end of the lake- north at Deerfield.

If you head north towards Stardust you will pass an area where people gather and theres a rope swing. Stardust has good food, gas etc

Agree with Brendan. The water is great although I can only compare to muddy lakes of Ohio.

Yep, Looking forward to the June Lake Norris trip with TMC, spent all day today getting boat shiny and ready for summer. Did some wet sanding and used cutting compound on entire hull today to get rid of water marks and some light oxidation. 7hrs of hard ass work and I am sore as hell, but pumped about how great its already looking. Once I polish and wax...gonna look brand new! These black hulls look awesome when shiny but hard to keep up with unless you stay on top of it constantly

Norris is an exceptional place to ride. (If anyone knows, it's Brendan for sure!)

If you are going with a serious riding crew, I recommend renting a houseboat. Keeps you on the water, quick and easy to get on the boat and load/unload gear. With a family a house is ideal. It can just be a bit of a decent to the water or climb when heading back to the house. Also check out WakeDreams, puts you really close to the Tiki Bar, G-Rides, jumping bridge, Shanghai and many other restaurants/gas stations!

Very nice, if you had a big enough and familiar crew, 3 boat families and most of their friends could fit, but looks like you’d need that many to afford it. If we make this trek annual, I will try to organize a crew

You can rent 2 bedroom condos to 12 bed room houses down there. All kinds of places for all budgets.
