Paddling

From whitewater adventures to peaceful paddles on a calm lake, Tennessee State Parks are great places to gain a new perspective on things - from a boat!

A variety of canoes, kayaks, tandem kayaks, SUPs, and pedal boats can be rented at the parks below, although the selection of watercraft varies from park to park. While most rentals include life jackets, feel free to bring your own.

Several parks have ramps and/or canoe and kayak put-ins,  including Bledsoe Creek, Henry Horton, Hiwassee/Ocoee, Port Royal, Rock Island, Seven Islands.
