State Route 212 (SR-212) is a 2.4-mile-long (3.9 km) state highway in Lake County in the northwestern portion of the U.S. state of Tennessee. It provides access to the Tennessee Department of Correction's Northwest Correctional Complex.

Route description[edit]

SR-212 begins in Tiptonville city limits, (but north of downtown) at an intersection with SR-22. It travels to the west to an entrance to the Northwest Correctional Complex and then, at a steep curve, it turns south. Then, at another steep curve, it turns back west and travels in front of the Northwest Correctional Complex. At a three-way intersection, SR-212 turns south again and continues southerly until it meets its eastern terminus, an intersection with SR-78 northeast of Tiptonville.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Lake County.
