Paddling

Knoxville is a river city with the Tennessee River flowing right through our downtown area. With our abundance of rivers to choose from, paddlers will have no trouble indulging their love of water. The Tennessee, Holston and French Broad rivers provide scenic flatwater paddling options ranging from quick paddles to half day and full day excursions. Adventures on our sparkling rivers provide fun for any interest, age and skill level.

Check our calendar for group paddles.
