Canoe, Kayak, Sun Lotion, Perfect Day on the River
Category: Outdoor Sports

Outdoors is the place to be!  Lewis County has lots to offer land and water.  Canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, camping, just to name a few.  

The Buffalo River, a natural attraction for weekend canoe and kayak enthusiasts, is one of the last rivers classified as "scenic" in the Southeast.  Rent a canoe or kayak at Buffalo Canoeing & Campground, 931-796-2211, for recreational floating or fishing.  Sports fishermen and women will find a variety of fish types including bass, bluegill, perch and more.  Canoeing, or "floating the Buffalo," is a perfect way to spend the day in Lewis County.  Public access on Natchez Trace Parkway milepost 382.8 at Metal Ford. 
Canoeing the Buffalo River is a cool way to spend the summer.  Bring your canoe or kayak and put in at any of several points, see map.  On the Buffalo offers drop-off/transport services.  Lewis County entered into a partnership with the Tennessee Blueways Conservancy to create additional entries on the river.  You can find out more about this on the page in our website for the Chart Your Journey experience.  
There are several business members of the Chamber of Commerce who can help you find out more information.  For instance, On the Buffalo offers kayaking, canoeing and campgrounds, as well as bed & breakfast accommodations on a 12-acre site right on the Buffalo River for your outdoor vacation experience.  Fall Hollow Resort offers space for RV and Tent camping, and has a bed & breakfast as well.  Located on the beautiful Swan Creek with lots of room to explore, tube and swim. Heartstone Campground, located near the Natchez Trace and local canoe rentals, their primitive tent camping sites, pop up camper and hammock friendly campground is the only one of its kind in South Central Tennessee. 


We will continue to update our information about suggestions about places to stay, as well as river destination points.  Check back here often.
