My husband and I were in Tennessee last week and discovered La Follette and Jacksboro. This was a beautiful area with wonderful mountain views and Norris Lake. Can anyone tell us a little about this area?

Default Campbell County, TN

Hello, JR Noble. Campbell County would appeal to me because it isn't very far from the Big South Fork Recreation Area, one of my favorite places. And it is within an hour or so of Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, another favorite haunt. Major shopping could be done in Knoxville. I have heard that good land deals can be found, although maybe not right on the lake. I think the area would be especially attractive to retirees.

well i am an import lol i moved to tennessee a few years ago and i live in jacksboro. i came for a visit and fell in love with the area and ended up moving here. here is a little info on the area. homes here usually run 100 to 150 dollars per square foot, unless they are around the lake. anything around the lake is going to cost ya. taxes are high here for what you get and utilities are rediculous! the job market is generally slow here in campbell county, most people commute to knoxville, clinton, and oak ridge. the only shopping you have here in jacksboro/ lafollette is basically walmart. you have to drive to knoxville to get the good stuff. as far as entertainment there isnt much around here to do, in the summer there is boating and fishing if you own your own boat, but i would not recommend eating fish out of any of these lakes , or swimming ( unless you want to grow a tail). well in all i would say that this is an ok place to live if you like to sit on the porch and take in the scenery but you can only look at these mountains for so long before you are bored out of your mind and ready to move somewhere else. hope i could help
