Join Outdoor Chattanooga for a guided and equipped overnight kayak tour down the gorgeous Tennessee River Gorge. Guides will lead you on a leisurely-paced down-river paddle between the gorge’s 1000 foot walls to tent camp under the stars in the “Grand Canyon” of Tennessee.

No experience is necessary to participate on this kayak camping trip down the Tennessee River. Outdoor Chattanooga will provide everything you need to make your kayak expedition an enjoyable and relaxing adventure. Kayak camping is not all that different than backpacking, but you don't have to carry all the weight on your back. 

This program will host an instructional workshop on "how to pack your kayak" prior to the launch date and work with you on gathering your personal equipment for the trip. Departure on Saturday will be midday and return mid-afternoon on Sunday. The total distance is around 7 miles. 

Cost is $125 per person which includes guides throughout the duration of the trip, all the kayaking equipment (kayak, paddle, PFD), camping equipment (tent, ground pad, sleeping bag), meals (2 lunches, dinner, and breakfast) and transportation from Greenway Farm Park in Hixson to the river and back. This kayak tour is appropriate for ages 16+ when accompanied by an adult. Some prior kayaking/paddling experience is helpful but not required to participate in this tour. Guides will offer paddling instruction and provide on water support throughout the duration of the tour.

Reservations and payment are required in advance as space is limited. Call 423.643.6888 to learn more and register today!
