Enjoy excellent trout fishing and relaxation at the Clinch River Lodge.
After a great day of fishing for rainbow, brook, and brown trout, hang your waders up, grab a chair on the wrap around porch, and watch the sun bring its evening colors right up the beautiful Clinch River in Tennessee. Just 20 minutes north of Knoxville, TN, you will find some great tailwater below Norris dam where the water's temperature is 50-60 degrees year round.
We built the Lodge approximately 100 yards downstream from where my grandfather, father, and brothers enjoyed a deep pool and the excitement of getting up in the morning with the fog and the beauty of the river ... all of us wading and casting for the trout it holds. Here at the Lodge the river really does 'run through it.'
The Clinch River Lodge sleeps 16. It has 5 bedrooms with 5 baths. Two of the bedrooms have queen sized beds. One of the bedrooms has a long bunk bed with a full bed below and a twin above. The other 2 bedrooms have3 bunk beds in each - one of these bunk beds has a full bed below and a twin above. The Lodge has 3 levels with a wrap around porch and a view downstream as the river sets on the water. The great room has a movie screen available for projected films (you provide the projector). It is also equipped with a 42'' HD Flat Screen TV and DVD with a small video library for your view pleasure.
The Clinch River Lodge sits right on the Clinch River about 4 miles downstream from Norris Dam. It is right on the trophy section of the river. The Tennessee state record brown of 28 lbs. was caught about a mile upstream.
Other Things to Do ...

Wonderful vacation on the Clinch River
Great house right on the Clinch River. So many things to do nearby. Many were recommended by the owner. So much fun!
Nice property with lovely river view
We enjoyed our stay at Clinch River Lodge - it was just the break we needed from the busy hustle and bustle of Chicago. The lodge has all the basics you need and each night we were able to relax by the fire. The lodge is about 1/2 hr from downtown Knoxville so it is an easy commute into Knoxville if you are looking for a little night life. Overall, a nice stay for my family.
From the time I saw the pictures of the Clinch River Lodge, I knew it would be the perfect place for my family's Labor Day weekend getaway! It did not disappoint in any way! The porch, the 180 degree view of the river, the location......remote, yet so close to a Walmart and the Interstate! We had a wonderful time! We would definitely go again!
Great house for an escape
Stayed with a group of friends (12 of us) for a long weekend while in town for the USRowing Masters National Championships. The space was excellent for our group. Plenty of beds, plenty of bathrooms, plenty of space, roomy kitchen, washer & dryer, big grill, firepit, awesome porch, sweet view of the river. We had a great time and would love to come back someday.
We had 17 people stay for 5 days and we really enjoyed this cabin. It had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The only downside that we encountered, and this has nothing to do with the cabin itself, is that we had envisioned being able to have kids playing in the river off the shore during the hot days. The water was frequently too high and too fast due to the generators at the dam running throughout the day to allow the kids in the water. When the water went down and we attempted to play in the water, the bank from the cabin to the river was very steep and covered in weeds and poison ivy. All in all we enjoyed our time together at this place and would do it again in the future.
Great location! Turn in and out of drive a little rough but great accommodations!
Ease of reservation great! Could be clearer instructions on check out procedures as far as what to clean etc. missed the stolen canoe. Overall awesome had a great time! Thanks Cooper family!
The Clinch River Lodge is right on the trophy section of The Clinch River. It is located about 4 miles below Norris Dam on the beautiful tailwater flowing from the dam. Trout fisherman seek out the river for its beauty and the three varieties of trout that live there - brook, rainbow, and brown trout. The state record brown was caught just 1 mi. upstream from the lodge. We are also very near the Museum of Appalachia, a Smithsonian affiliate, and a wondrous walk into the past. Even Mark Twain's old cabin is located there along with many other remembrances of mountain living long ago. The town of Clinton is nearby with its variety of stores featuring antiques. And, Knoxville is 15 minutes away with dining and many forms of entertainment. There are great walking and hiking trails near the dam, and at night, many drive there just to watch the deer come out to graze in the grassy meadows.
