Canoe, Kayak & SUP Outfitters – Tennessee River

The 652-mile Tennessee River flows through the heart of Chattanooga and Southeast Tennessee, offering a variety of recreation activities on the river and lakes throughout the region.



The waterway flows south from Watts Bar Lake near Ten Mile and Spring City, south through Birchwood in Meigs County, continuing on to Chickamauga Lake in Dayton, known as the “New Bass Fishing Capital of the South.” From there, the river flows south through downtown Chattanooga and then south through the stunning Tennessee River Gorge to Nickajack Dam.


The Tennessee River also offers paddling access to a number of smaller regional waterways, including North and South Chickamauga Creeks, Citico Creek, Chattanooga Creek, Lookout Creek, the Sequatchie River, Battle Creek and others.
